Cadence reported fourth quarter 2009 revenue of $220 million, compared to revenue of $227 million reported for the same period in 2008. On a GAAP basis, Cadence recognized net income of $2 million, or $0.01 per share on a diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to a net loss of $1.63 billion, or $(6.55) per share on a diluted basis in the same period in 2008. Revenue for fiscal year 2009 totaled $853 million, compared to revenue of $1.04 billion in fiscal year 2008. The net loss for fiscal year 2009 was $150 million, or $(0.58) per share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of $1.86 billion, or $(7.30) per share on a diluted basis for fiscal year 2008. The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 included a non-cash impairment charge of $1.36 billion, related to Cadence's goodwill, intangible assets, and fixed assets. The impairment charge, which was driven by adverse economic conditions and a decline in Cadence's market capitalization, had no effect on Cadence's cash flows.
In addition to using GAAP results to evaluate Cadence's business, management believes it is useful to measure results using a non-GAAP measure of net income or net loss, which excludes, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, in-process research and development charges, costs related to a withdrawn acquisition proposal and losses on the sale of shares of the target company stock, integration and acquisition-related costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive severance costs, restructuring charges and credits, amortization of discount on convertible notes, equity in losses (income) from investments, write-down of investments, impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary. Non-GAAP net income or net loss is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on the non-GAAP measure.
Using this non-GAAP measure, net income in the fourth quarter of 2009 was $15 million, or $0.06 per share on a diluted basis, as compared to a net loss of $11 million, or $(0.04) per share on a diluted basis, in the same period in 2008. For fiscal year 2009, non-GAAP net loss was $16 million, or $(0.06) per share on a diluted basis, compared to a net loss of $10 million and $(0.04) per share on a diluted basis in fiscal year 2008.

"Our primary operational focus in the year was to enhance the level of research and development engagement at key accounts and open new business opportunities for the company."

Palatnik, senior vice president and chief financial officer, adding, "I believe that with continued strong focus on execution, we will expand our position with customers, grow the top line and improve profitability over time."

Adoption of accounting principles required by the "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" subtopic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification
On the first day of fiscal 2009, Cadence adopted new accounting principles as required by the "Debt with Conversion and Other Options" subtopic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Accordingly, Cadence has adjusted the applicable prior period balance sheets and statements of operations to reflect the adjusted balance of the convertible notes and related items, and to record the amortization of the discount on the convertible notes as non-cash interest expense. A reconciliation of Cadence's as-adjusted Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of January 3, 2009 and its as-adjusted Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the quarter and fiscal year ended January 3, 2009 to their respective statements as initially reported is included with this release.
GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation
Cadence management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its product, maintenance and services business operations and certain costs of those operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. One such measure is non-GAAP net income or net loss, which is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and is GAAP net income or net loss excluding, as applicable, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, in-process research and development charges, costs related to a withdrawn acquisition proposal and losses on the sale of shares of the target company stock, integration and acquisition-related costs, gains or losses and expenses or credits related to non-qualified deferred compensation plan assets, executive severance costs, restructuring charges and credits, amortization of discount on convertible notes, equity in losses (income) from investments, write-down of investments, impairment charges related to goodwill, intangible assets and fixed assets, and losses related to the liquidation of a subsidiary. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased or licensed technology, backlog, patents, trademarks, distribution rights, customer contracts and related relationships and non-compete agreements. Non-GAAP net income or net loss is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company's tax liability.
