For the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, Synopsys reported revenue of $521.8 million, compared to $482.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 8.0 percent.
"Synopsys delivered an excellent fiscal third quarter, solidifying the year's financial outlook," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "We shipped game-changing new products that are generating intense customer interest and high-impact results, and have already started a multi-year upgrade cycle. We also achieved encouraging results through Coverity, the recent acquisition that expands our total addressable market into the software quality, test and security space."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $65.7 million, or $0.42 per share, compared to $52.3 million, or $0.33 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $103.2 million, or $0.65 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $86.5 million, or $0.55 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Synopsys continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Synopsys presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Synopsys' operating results in a manner that focuses on what Synopsys believes to be its ongoing business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Synopsys' management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Synopsys' management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) the amortization of acquired intangible assets, (ii) the impact of stock compensation, (iii) acquisition-related costs, including inventory fair value adjustments, (iv) other significant items, including facilities restructuring charges and the effect of tax and legal settlements, and (v) the income tax effect of non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments as well as unusual or infrequent tax adjustments; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of Synopsys' business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever Synopsys uses a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed below.
