MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design and manufacturing, today reported results for its first quarter ended January 31, 2009.
For the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Synopsys reported revenue of $339.8 million, a 7.7 percent increase compared to $315.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
"Synopsys' first quarter was characterized by solid financial performance, continued technology momentum and visible customer success," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "While the recession has clearly deepened and we have seen signs of customer stress, we believe that Synopsys is well positioned to help our customers weather the storm, and to emerge an even stronger company as a result."
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $52.4 million, or $0.37 per share, compared to $46.4 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $71.6 million, or $0.50 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $66.0 million, or $0.44 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2008.
Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided at the end of this press release.
Synopsys also provided its financial targets for the second quarter and full fiscal year 2009. These targets constitute forward-looking information and are based on current expectations.

Synopsys continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Synopsys presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Synopsys' operating results in a manner that focuses on what Synopsys believes to be its ongoing business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Synopsys' management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Synopsys' management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) share-based compensation; (ii) the amortization of acquired intangible assets and in- process research and development charges; and (iii) the income tax effect of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments from the provision for income taxes; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of Synopsys' business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever Synopsys uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed below.
