SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Apr 24, 2013 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.
Cadence reported first quarter 2013 revenue of $354 million, compared to revenue of $316 million reported for the same period in 2012. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $79 million, or $0.27 per share on a diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $31 million, or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2012. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 included a $34 million income tax benefit due to a reversal of an uncertain tax position.
Using Cadence’s non-GAAP measure, net income in the first quarter of 2013 was $61 million, or $0.21 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $47 million, or $0.17 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2012.
“In Q1 we accelerated our IP strategy through key acquisitions that will expand the scope of our IP business and demonstrate our capabilities and readiness for FinFET-based high performance design, and we also saw significant strength in repeat orders for Palladium XP,” said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. “Looking ahead, I expect to see our focus and discipline in scaling our IP business start to show meaningful growth.”
“Strong execution by the Cadence team continued in Q1 as results for all key operating metrics exceeded expectations,” added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. “The Tensilica acquisition not only significantly expands the scope of our IP business, but also brings a growing royalty component to our revenue mix.”
Cadence this week completed its previously announced acquisition of Tensilica, Inc., a leader in dataplane processing IP. The cash outlay at closing, after taking into account adjustments for certain costs and an estimated $25 million of cash held by Tensilica at closing, was approximately $326 million. In addition, Cadence assumed certain unvested Tensilica options. Tensilica's configurable dataplane processing units complement industry-standard processor architectures and are optimized for embedded data and signal processing. Tensilica's target markets include mobile wireless, network infrastructure, auto infotainment and home applications. The Tensilica team, led by Jack Guedj, will report to Martin Lund, Cadence's senior vice president of research and development, SOC Realization Group.
During the first quarter 2013, Cadence also announced its intent to acquire Cosmic Circuits Private Limited, a developer of low-power connectivity and analog/mixed-signal IP. This transaction is expected to close soon. These acquisitions accelerate Cadence's strategy of growing its IP business by providing high quality differentiated IP for leading protocols at advanced process nodes. Cadence is pursuing this strategy through both targeted acquisitions and increased investment in internal IP development. In addition to expanding Cadence's IP portfolio focused on growing markets, these acquisitions, as they are integrated into Cadence, will enable optimization with Cadence's design tools and accelerate IP subsystem development and integration.
It is estimated that 2013 revenue on a standalone basis for Tensilica would be about $57 million prior to merger accounting, of which $13 million would be royalties, representing growth of about 30 percent over Tensilica's revenue in 2012. Cadence is assuming that Tensilica will contribute approximately $27 million of revenue in the remainder of 2013, after a deferred revenue adjustment of approximately $16 million due to merger accounting. The transaction is expected to be approximately eight cents dilutive to GAAP EPS and one cent dilutive to non-GAAP EPS for 2013.
The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.
For the second quarter of 2013, the company expects total revenue in the range of $355 million to $365 million. Second quarter GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.10 to $0.12. Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.19 to $0.21.
For 2013, the company expects total revenue in the range of $1.440 billion to $1.470 billion. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share for 2013 is expected to be in the range of $0.59 to $0.69. Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for 2013 is expected to be in the range of $0.81 to $0.91.
A schedule showing a reconciliation of the business outlook from GAAP net income and diluted net income per share to non-GAAP net income and diluted net income per share is included with this release.
