MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 16, 2022 -- Synopsys, Inc. today reported results for its first quarter fiscal year 2022. Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 was $1.270 billion, compared to $970.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.
"Synopsys began fiscal year 2022 with excellent momentum, supported by strength across all product groups and geographies. We delivered financial results at or above guidance targets, returned $250 million to shareholders through stock repurchases, and are raising our outlook for the year," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Our markets are strong, as companies across vertical segments intensify their investments to benefit from increased complexity in critical chips, system design, and immense amounts of software. Synopsys is at the heart of this wave of advanced technology. Our unique, game-changing innovations are driving excellent technical benefits for our customers and outstanding business results."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 was $313.7 million, or $1.99 per diluted share, compared to $162.3 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 was $376.9 million, or $2.40 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $239.5 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.
