The Concluding Tables and Comments
EDA & MCAD/MCAE VENDORS SUMMARY FINANCIALS Q2 2012
Tables 1 & 2 below set out a summary of the Nominal Q2 2012 revenues and earnings, respectively, for the four selected EDA vendors and then the four selected MCAD/MCAE vendors covered in this October 8, 2012 issue of the Almanac.
Several observations may be made from this latest Table 1:
All the vendors in each Group of four enjoyed slightly higher sequential quarterly revenue in Q2 2012 vs. Q1 2012, except for Mentor Graphics in EDA and Autodesk in MCAD/MCAE. Nevertheless, in both sets of vendors, the fall offs of Mentor and Autodesk in Q2 vs. Q1 were not serious enough to cause their respective group totals in Q2 to fall below the group totals achieved in Q1.
- Recall that both sets of vendors in total experienced the usual fall off of revenues in Q1 2012 following the traditional robust Q4 2011 of the preceding year. The EDA group of 4 revenue total in Q1 2012 was off -5.30% compared to Q4 2011, whereas the MCAD/MCAE group of 4 revenue total in Q1 2012 was off -6.29% compared to Q4 2011.
- Three of the four EDA vendors covered for Q1 2012 actually scored revenues in Q1 2012 slightly larger than they did in the just prior Q4 2011, but Mentor Graphics missed by more than $50 million, or -22+%, bringing the EDA G4 total Q1 2012 revenue in below its total Q4 2011 level. Still, Q1 2012 for the EDA G4 in total was easily larger than any other EDA G4 quarterly total in 2011, except Q4 2011.
- The MCAD/MCAE group continued to enjoy +60% revenue leadership in Q2 2012 over the EDA Group, but its lead narrowed slightly (by 1.7% points) in Q2 2012 vs. Q1 2012.
- Q1 2012 was universally less that Q4 2011 for all members of the G4 MCAD/MCAE vendors.
- For the year 2011, the order of revenue totals for thr Big 3 EDA companies remained the same as in most recent years: Synopsys was number 1, followed by Cadence and then MGC. However, each of the Big 3 EDA vendors eclipsed the billion dollar mark in revenue for the first time in 2011. Two quarters unto 2012, the same Synopsys – Cadence- MGC order persists.
- In MCAD/MCAE, Dassault Systemes won the most full year 2011 revenue title, followed closely by Autodesk, PTC and ANSYS in that order. Same order of total revenue rank prevails so far halfway into 2012.
- Among the eight vendors, recall that Cadence had the best YOY % revenue growth Q1 2012 vs. Q1 2011 at nearly 19%, and ANSYS delivered a close second at just over 17%. But for Q2 2012,
ANSYS replaced Cadence as the fastest growing percentage leader YOY Q2 2012 vs. Q2 2011 in revenue among the eight vendors listed.
- It may be noticed that Dassault’s
Euro revenue growth rate of +17.34% YOY comparing Q2 2012 to Q2 2011, was completely obliterated in the conversion to dollars by the reduction in the multiplier of the
Euro to $ conversion factor to 1.22 from 1.439 a year ago. Is it any wonder why Dassault uses ‘constant currencies’ for its own public reporting?
