Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced results for the third quarter 2016.
Cadence reported third quarter 2016 revenue of $446 million, compared to revenue of $434 million reported for the same period in 2015. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $65 million, or $0.23 per share on a diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $78 million, or $0.25 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2015.
Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income in the third quarter of 2016 was $85 million, or $0.30 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $89 million, or $0.28 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2015.
“We continued to make progress on our System Design Enablement strategy in the third quarter, which resulted in solid financial results,” said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. “Our digital and signoff solutions maintained their momentum with market-shaping customers; five new systems customers, including a major aerospace company, adopted our Palladium® Z1 emulation platform; and we increased our expansion into automotive functional safety verification.”
“Our results for the third quarter reflect our relentless focus on innovation and execution,” said Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. “We believe that we are well-positioned for the rest of the year as we continue to execute on our strategic priorities and return capital to shareholders. In the third quarter, we repurchased 9.6 million shares of stock, and we have now repurchased 42.5 million shares for $960 million under the current $1.2 billion program, representing approximately 15 percent of shares outstanding as of July 4, 2015.”

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 and debt discount related to convertible notes, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration-related costs including retention expenses, special charges, 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’s management uses non-GAAP net income because it excludes items that are generally not directly related to the performance of the company’s core business operations and therefore provides supplemental information to Cadence’s 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’s 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:
