"Synopsys again executed very well in the third quarter, delivering record revenue, non-GAAP earnings per share and operating cash flow. We saw double-digit revenue growth across all product groups and strength in all geographies. Our intense, multi-year innovation push is driving increased momentum in product successes and production adoptions," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Even as the world navigates through the pandemic and economic challenges, global design activity and customer engagements are flourishing. Due to our very strong fiscal third quarter, confidence in our outlook and resilient business model, we are raising 2020 revenue, operating margin, non-GAAP earnings-per-share and operating cash flow targets."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $252.9 million, or $1.62 per share, compared to $99.9 million, or $0.65 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2019.
