Cadence reported first quarter 2012 revenue of $316 million, compared to revenue of $266 million reported for the same period in 2011. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $31 million, or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis in the first quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $6 million, or $0.02 per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2011.

“Cadence is off to a good start for 2012, with strong operating performance leading to an increase in our outlook,” said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. “We continue to roll out new technology, including the newest release of our Encounter digital design platform targeted at the 20-nanometer node, as well as new design IP products for memory, networking and high-performance computing.”
“Our operating performance in Q1 gives us confidence that we will achieve our long term profitability and growth objectives,” added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. “I am also pleased by the reduction in DSOs, accounts receivable and deferred revenue, driven by our ongoing efforts to match cash collections with the timing of revenue recognition.”
