Cadence Reports Q4 and Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2009.

Cadence reported fourth quarter 2009 revenue of $220 million, compared to revenue of $227 million reported for the same period in 2008. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $2 million, or $0.01 per share on a diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to a net loss of $1.63 billion, or $(6.55) per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2008. Revenue for fiscal year 2009 totaled $853 million, compared to revenue of $1.04 billion in fiscal year 2008. The net loss for fiscal year 2009 was $150 million, or $(0.58) per share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of $1.86 billion, or $(7.30) per share on a diluted basis for fiscal year 2008. The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 included a non-cash impairment charge of $1.36 billion, related to Cadence's goodwill, intangible assets, and fixed assets. The impairment charge, which was driven by adverse economic conditions and a decline in Cadence's market capitalization, had no effect on Cadence's cash flows.

In addition to using GAAP results to evaluate Cadence's business, management believes it is useful to measure results using a non-GAAP measure of net income or net loss, which excludes, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, in-process research and development charges, costs related to a withdrawn acquisition proposal and losses on the sale of shares of the target company stock, integration and acquisition-related costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive severance costs, restructuring charges and credits, amortization of discount on convertible notes, equity in losses (income) from investments, write-down of investments, impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary. Non-GAAP net income or net loss is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on the non-GAAP measure.

Using this non-GAAP measure, net income in the fourth quarter of 2009 was $15 million, or $0.06 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to a net loss of $11 million, or $(0.04) per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2008. For fiscal year 2009, non-GAAP net loss was $16 million, or $(0.06) per share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of $10 million and $(0.04) per share on a diluted basis in fiscal year 2008.

"In 2009, we positioned Cadence for future growth. We improved our customer engagement, strengthened our foundation technology, and reduced our cost structure. We've identified new opportunities for growth, and renewed Cadence's culture of innovation and accountability," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. "Our primary operational focus in the year was to enhance the level of research and development engagement at key accounts and open new business opportunities for the company."

"In 2009, we significantly improved operating efficiency while strategically redeploying resources," said Kevin S. Palatnik, senior vice president and chief financial officer, adding, "I believe that with continued strong focus on execution, we will expand our position with customers, grow the top line and improve profitability over time."

The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.

Business Outlook

For the first quarter of 2010, the company expects total revenue in the range of $210 million to $220 million. First quarter GAAP net loss per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $(0.10) to $(0.08). Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.00 to $0.02.

For the full year 2010, the company expects total revenue in the range of $865 million to $900 million. On a GAAP basis, net loss per diluted share for fiscal 2010 is expected to be in the range of $(0.29) to $(0.19). Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for fiscal 2010 is expected to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.15.

A schedule showing a reconciliation of the business outlook from GAAP net loss and diluted net loss per share to non-GAAP net income and diluted net income per share is included with this release.

Adoption of accounting principles required by the "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" subtopic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification

On the first day of fiscal 2009, Cadence adopted new accounting principles as required by the "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" subtopic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Accordingly, Cadence has adjusted the applicable prior period balance sheets and statements of operations to reflect the adjusted balance of the convertible notes and related items, and to record the amortization of the discount on the convertible notes as non-cash interest expense. A reconciliation of Cadence's as-adjusted Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of January 3, 2009 and its as-adjusted Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the quarter and fiscal year ended January 3, 2009 to their respective statements as initially reported is included with this release.

GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation

Cadence management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its product, maintenance and services business operations and certain costs of those operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. One such measure is non-GAAP net income or net loss, which is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and is GAAP net income or net loss excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, in-process research and development charges, costs related to a withdrawn acquisition proposal and losses on the sale of shares of the target company stock, integration and acquisition-related costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive severance costs, restructuring charges and credits, amortization of discount on convertible notes, equity in losses (income) from investments, write-down of investments, impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased or licensed technology, backlog, patents, trademarks, distribution rights, customer contracts and related relationships and non-compete agreements. Non-GAAP net income or net loss is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability.

Cadence's management believes it is useful in measuring Cadence's operations to exclude amortization of intangible assets, in-process research and development charges and integration and acquisition-related costs because these costs are primarily fixed at the time of an acquisition and generally cannot be changed by Cadence's management in the short term. In addition, Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expense because it enhances investors' ability to review Cadence's business from the same perspective as Cadence's management, which believes that stock-based compensation expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of Cadence's business operations. Cadence's management also believes that it is useful to exclude restructuring charges and credits. During fiscal 2009 and the second half of fiscal 2008, Cadence commenced restructuring programs that it expects to complete by the end of fiscal 2010. Cadence's management believes that in measuring the company's operations, it is useful to exclude any such restructuring charges and credits because exclusion of such charges permits consistent evaluations of Cadence's performance before and after such actions are taken. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude executive severance costs because these costs do not occur frequently. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude gains or losses and expenses or credits related to the non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets because these gains and expenses are not part of Cadence's direct costs of operations, but reflect changes in the value of assets held in the non-qualified deferred compensation plan. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude the amortization of the discount on convertible notes because this incremental cost recorded as interest expense does not represent a cash obligation of the company and is not part of Cadence's direct cost of operations. Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude the equity in losses (income) from investments and write-down of investments because these items are not part of Cadence's direct cost of operations. Rather, these are non-operating items that are included in other income (expense) and are part of the company's investment activities. Finally, Cadence's management also believes it is useful to exclude impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary because these do not occur on a regular basis and are not part of the company's direct costs of operations.

During fiscal year 2009, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded the impact of an income tax benefit associated with the temporary increase in the net operating loss carryback period for operating losses Cadence incurred in the United States. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the tax benefit associated with this change in the United States tax law because the extended net operating loss carryback period is only applicable for operating losses incurred during either fiscal 2008 or fiscal 2009.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded the impact of tax expense associated with recording a valuation allowance against Cadence's deferred tax assets. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the tax expense associated with this valuation allowance because Cadence does not expect changes in the valuation allowance of the magnitude recorded in the fourth quarter of 2008 to be recorded frequently.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded the impact of tax expense associated with Cadence's repatriation of foreign earnings. Cadence's management believes it is useful to exclude the tax expense associated with the repatriation of foreign earnings because it resulted from an event that is not expected to occur frequently.

During fiscal year 2008, Cadence's non-GAAP net loss also excluded costs related to a withdrawn acquisition proposal and losses on the sale of shares of the target company stock which Cadence acquired as part of the proposed acquisition. Cadence's management believes that in measuring Cadence's operations it is useful to exclude the costs and the losses associated with this proposed acquisition because these items are not directly related to Cadence's operating performance and resulted from events that are not expected to occur frequently.

Cadence's management believes that non-GAAP net income or net loss provides useful supplemental information to Cadence's management and investors regarding the performance of the company's business operations and facilitates comparisons to the company's historical operating results. Cadence's management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with their most directly comparable GAAP financial results.

The following tables reconcile the specific items excluded from GAAP net income or net loss and GAAP net income or net loss per diluted share in the calculation of non-GAAP net income or net loss and non-GAAP net income or net loss per diluted share for the periods shown below:

Investors are encouraged to look at the GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance. For example, amortization of intangibles or in-process technology are important to consider because they may represent initial expenditures that under GAAP are reported across future fiscal periods. Likewise, stock-based compensation expense is an obligation of the company that should be considered. Restructuring charges can be triggered by acquisitions or product adjustments, as well as overall company performance within a given business environment. All of these metrics are important to financial performance generally.

Although Cadence's management finds the non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating the performance of Cadence's business, reliance on these measures is limited because items excluded from such measures often have a material effect on Cadence's earnings and earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, Cadence's management typically uses the non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, in conjunction with the GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, to address these limitations.

Cadence expects that its corporate representatives will meet privately during the quarter with investors, the media, investment analysts and others. At these meetings, Cadence may reiterate the business outlook published in this press release. At the same time, Cadence will keep this press release, including the business outlook, publicly available on its Web site.

Prior to the start of the Quiet Period (described below), the public may continue to rely on the business outlook contained herein as still being Cadence's current expectations on matters covered unless Cadence publishes a notice stating otherwise.

Beginning March 19, 2010, Cadence will observe a Quiet Period during which the business outlook as provided in this press release and the company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q no longer constitute the company's current expectations. During the Quiet Period, the business outlook in these documents should be considered to be historical, speaking as of prior to the Quiet Period only and not subject to any update by the company. During the Quiet Period, Cadence's representatives will not comment on Cadence's business outlook, financial results or expectations. The Quiet Period will extend until the day when Cadence's First Quarter 2010 Earnings Release is published, which is currently scheduled for April 28, 2010.
