Cadence reported first quarter 2014 revenue of $379 million, compared to revenue of $354 million reported for the same period in 2013.  On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $33 million, or $0.11 per share on a diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2014, compared to net income of $79 million, or $0.27 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2013.  GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 included a $34 million income tax benefit due to a release of an uncertain tax position.

Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income in the first quarter of 2014 was $59 million, or $0.20 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to net income of $61 million, or $0.21 per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2013.

"In Q1, Cadence continued to strengthen its product portfolio through internally developed products and key acquisitions," said Lip-Bu Tan, president and chief executive officer.  "We advanced our functional verification platform by releasing our new Incisive® vManagerTM solution and acquiring Forte Design Systems.  And today, we announced that we entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Jasper Design Automation, Inc., which will meaningfully add to our verification capabilities.  We also continued to see strong customer interest and growing adoption of our digital and new sign-off products with multiple design wins."

"Cadence produced solid operating results in Q1 while continuing to invest strategically to further our growth objectives," added Geoff Ribar, senior vice president and chief financial officer.

Business Outlook

For the second quarter of 2014, the company expects total revenue in the range of $370 million to $380 million.  Second quarter GAAP net income per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $0.10 to $0.12.  Net income per diluted share using the non-GAAP measure defined below is expected to be in the range of $0.19 to $0.21.

For 2014, the company expects total revenue in the range of $1.550 billion to $1.590 billion.  On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share for 2014 is expected to be in the range of $0.56 to $0.66.  Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, net income per diluted share for 2014 is expected to be in the range of $0.92 to $1.02.

The foregoing statements regarding the company's business outlook do not take into account the pending acquisition of Jasper Design Automation, Inc.
