Dear Valued Customer:

I am writing to inform you that Cadence announced the formation of an Interim Office of the Chief Executive to oversee the day-to-day running of the company’s operations, effective immediately. The formation of the Interim Office of the Chief Executive followed Michael Fister’s resignation as President, Chief Executive Officer and a director of the company, by mutual agreement between Mr. Fister and the Board.

The Interim Office of the Chief Executive is comprised of: John Shoven, Ph.D., Chairman of Cadence’s Board, who has been appointed to the position of Interim Executive Chairman; Lip-Bu Tan, a director of Cadence since 2004, who has been appointed Interim Vice Chairman of Cadence’s Board; and Kevin Palatnik, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. The Board has formed a search committee to identify qualified candidates to lead the company on a permanent basis.

We also want to inform you that Kevin Bushby has resigned as Executive Vice President – Worldwide Field Operations. Tom Cooley, Corporate Vice President – Field Marketing, will succeed Kevin leading Worldwide Field Operations. Tom’s proven leadership in the field, combined with his deep knowledge of our products and customers acquired over 13 years in the Cadence sales organization, makes him an ideal leader for our field operations. We are confident that Tom and his team will continue to enhance the strong relationship built with you over the years and focus on your needs.

Cadence takes great pride in building enduring customer relationships. We remain focused on enhancing our core business and leveraging the company’s many strengths while continuing to fulfill your needs with compelling products and solutions. None of this is going to change. Going forward, you will continue to receive the same outstanding service and support that you have come to expect over the years.
