"Synopsys delivered excellent results in the fiscal third quarter, including record revenue and non-GAAP earnings, and we are substantially raising our fiscal 2021 targets. On a trailing-12-month basis, we surpassed the major milestone we set a few years ago: $4 billion in revenue and 30% non-GAAP operating margin." said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Vibrant markets, unparalleled technology innovations, and strong execution position us to continue to increase shareholder value going forward. As we look to next year and beyond, we are aiming at crossing $5 billion in revenue by 2023, with double-digit annual revenue growth and continuing margin expansion."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $198.6 million, or $1.27 per share, compared to $252.9 million, or $1.62 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $284.5 million, or $1.81 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $271.9 million, or $1.74 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
