Cadence Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--()--Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today reported its results under new revenue rules, ASC Topic 606. For the second quarter of 2018, Cadence reported revenue of $518 million, GAAP net income of $75 million, or $0.27 per share on a diluted basis, and non-GAAP net income (as defined below), of $126 million, or $0.45 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 second quarter of 2018, Cadence reported revenue of $515 million, compared to revenue of $479 million reported for the same period in 2017. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $73 million, or $0.26 per share on a diluted basis, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $69 million, or $0.25 per share on a diluted basis for the same period in 2017. Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $124 million, or $0.44 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $94 million, or $0.34 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2017.

Multiple technology waves, especially machine learning, are driving increased design activity and our System Design Enablement strategy is perfectly positioned to benefit from these across multiple verticals,” said Lip-Bu Tan, chief executive officer. “We had notable wins in Aerospace & Defense and introduced Cadence Cloud, the industry’s first broad cloud portfolio for the development of electronic systems and semiconductors.”

Consistent execution delivered good results for Cadence again this quarter. We continue to lead with innovation, making Cadence products increasingly mission critical to our customers, while our efforts to continually improve operational efficiency results in increased profitability flowing through to free cash flow,” said John Wall, senior vice president and chief financial officer.

CFO Commentary

Commentary on the second quarter 2018 financial results by John Wall, senior vice president and chief financial officer, is available at www.cadence.com/cadence/investor_relations.

Business Outlook

The outlook provided below is on an ASC Topic 606 basis, which Cadence has adopted for its fiscal year 2018 using the modified retrospective transition method. As required by the new standard, the company will report revenue under both methods for the 2018 transition year.

For the third quarter of 2018, the company expects total revenue in the range of $510 million to $520 million. Third quarter GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.22 to $0.24. Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.40 to $0.42.

For 2018, the company expects total revenue in the range of $2.070 billion to $2.090 billion. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share for 2018 is expected to be in the range of $0.95 to $1.01. Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for 2018 is expected to be in the range of $1.64 to $1.70.

For 2018, the company is forecasting a non-GAAP income tax rate of 16 percent, down from 23 percent used in 2017, primarily resulting from the tax rate reduction.

For comparison purposes, the company expects the outlook at the midpoint for 2018 on the prior ASC Topic 605 basis to be as follows: revenue of $2.105 billion, GAAP net income per diluted share of $1.06 and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $1.74.

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

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:

The Quiet Period will extend until Cadence’s third quarter 2018 earnings release is published, which is currently scheduled for October 22, 2018.
