"In 2013, our talented development teams delivered six new innovative products, revenue grew 10 percent, and we completed three important acquisitions in the IP space," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer. "Our differentiated design IP portfolio led to wins at over ten top tier customers, including head-to-head wins at advanced FinFET nodes."
"Our continuing focus on execution with customers and ecosystem partners, as well as product development, M&A and financial performance, drove strong revenue, cash flow and operating profits in Q4 and throughout 2013," added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "Even after the acquisition-related write-downs of deferred revenue, we still achieved our operating margin goal."
