Cadence Design Systems, Inc. is pleased to provide proxy materials for the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders over the internet in accordance with the Notice and Access Rule adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). As a result, most of our stockholders as of the close of business on March 10, 2014 (the "Record Date") will receive a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials (with instructions for accessing the proxy materials and voting over the internet or by telephone) instead of paper copies of the 2013 Annual Report and 2014 proxy materials. The Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials also provides instructions on how such stockholders may obtain paper copies of the 2013 Annual Report and 2014 proxy materials. Copies of the 2013 Annual Report and 2014 Proxy Statement are available below in PDF format.
