Mentor Graphics Responds to Cadence Announcement of Withdrawal of Acquisition Proposal

WILSONVILLE, Ore., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mentor Graphics (NASDAQ: MENT) acknowledged Cadence Design Systems' (NASDAQ: CDNS) press release indicating that Cadence was withdrawing their proposal to acquire Mentor Graphics. Mentor Graphics notes that this withdrawal is inconsistent with both Cadence's recent public statements and recent communications between Mentor Graphics and Cadence. Mentor Graphics was aware that, as described in the Cadence press release, Cadence was facing challenges in obtaining financing for the transaction. Additionally, today the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) made a "second request" indicating that regulatory review of the previously proposed transaction would have been protracted.

Mentor Graphics has been working diligently to enhance shareholder value and will continue these efforts.
