Cadence Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today reported its results
under new revenue rules, ASC Topic 606. For the fourth quarter of 2018,
Cadence reported revenue of $570 million, GAAP net income of $98
million, or $0.35 per share on a diluted basis, and non-GAAP net income
(as defined below) of $147 million, or $0.52 per share on a diluted
basis. For 2018, Cadence reported revenue of $2.138 billion, GAAP net
income of $346 million, or $1.23 per share on a diluted basis, and
non-GAAP net income of $526 million, or $1.87 per share on a diluted
basis.

Cadence also reported its results under the old revenue rules, ASC Topic
605, for easier comparison with prior results, all of which were
reported under ASC Topic 605.

Under ASC Topic 605, for the fourth quarter of 2018, Cadence reported
revenue of $579 million, compared to revenue of $502 million reported
for the same period in 2017. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net
income of $100 million, or $0.36 per share on a diluted basis, in the
fourth quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $14 million, or
$(0.05) per share on a diluted basis for the same period in 2017. Using
the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income for the fourth quarter of
2018 was $144 million, or $0.51 per share on a diluted basis, compared
to net income of $111 million, or $0.39 per share on a diluted basis,
for the same period in 2017.

Due to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in December 2017, GAAP net
loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 included a $67 million income tax
expense for a one time transition tax on previously untaxed foreign
earnings and a $25 million income tax expense for the reduction in the
value of Cadence’s U.S. deferred tax assets caused by the U.S. corporate
tax rate reduction.

Under ASC Topic 605, Cadence reported 2018 revenue of $2.146 billion,
compared to revenue of $1.943 billion for 2017. On a GAAP basis, Cadence
recognized net income of $351 million, or $1.25 per share on a diluted
basis, in 2018, compared to net income of $204 million, or $0.73 per
share on a diluted basis, in 2017. Using the non-GAAP measure defined
below, net income for 2018 was $528 million, or $1.88 per share on a
diluted basis, as compared to net income of $393 million, or $1.40 per
share on a diluted basis, in 2017.

Cadence achieved excellent operating results for 2018 as technology
trends like AI, cloud/datacenter and 5G drove strong design activity,”
said Lip-Bu Tan, chief executive officer. “We continued to execute our
System Design Enablement strategy, leading to broad strength across our
product lines, as well as in the aerospace/defense vertical, and we
announced our partnership with Green Hills Software, the leader in
embedded safety and security software.”

I’d like to thank the entire Cadence team for their strong execution
across all lines of business for 2018,” said John Wall, senior vice
president and chief financial officer. “I am pleased with our results
and look forward to building on our success in 2019.”

As of the end of the fourth quarter of 2018, $175 million remained
available under the previously announced authorization to repurchase
Cadence common stock. In February 2019, the Board of Directors
authorized the repurchase of an additional $500 million of Cadence
common stock. The timing and amount of repurchases will be subject to
business and market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements,
stock price, acquisition opportunities and other factors.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for
or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance
with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. 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. Investors are also encouraged to look at the
GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance.

To supplement Cadence’s financial results presented on a GAAP basis,
Cadence management uses non-GAAP measures that it believes are helpful
in understanding Cadence’s performance. One such measure is non-GAAP net
income, which is a financial measure not calculated under GAAP. Non-GAAP
net income is calculated by Cadence management by taking GAAP net income
and excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets,
stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration-related
costs including retention expenses, investment gains or losses, income
or expenses related to Cadence’s non-qualified deferred compensation
plan, restructuring and other significant items not directly related to
Cadence’s core business operations, and the income tax effect of
non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments.

Cadence management uses non-GAAP net income because it excludes items
that are generally not directly related to the performance of Cadence’s
core business operations and therefore provides supplemental information
to Cadence management and investors regarding the performance of the
business operations, facilitates comparisons to the historical operating
results and allows the review of Cadence’s business from the same
perspective as Cadence management, including forecasting and budgeting.

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