Synopsys Posts Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2019

Q4 2019 Financial Highlights

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 4, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —   Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2019. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $851.1 million, compared to $795.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Revenue for fiscal year 2019 was $3.361 billion, an increase of 7.7 percent from $3.121 billion in fiscal year 2018.  

"Fiscal 2019 was another outstanding year for Synopsys. Even as we navigated several external challenges, we significantly exceeded our beginning-of-year plan, and delivered strong growth in revenue, non-GAAP operating margin, earnings-per-share, and cash flow, and across both operating segments. We also returned $329 million to shareholders via stock repurchases," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "Against a challenging global market backdrop, design activity remains strong. Our unrelenting innovation push has resulted in stronger-than-ever platforms, which are driving notable benchmark wins and increased competitive displacements. As we move into 2020, well on our way to our next milestone of $4 billion in revenue and beyond, we are targeting solid revenue growth, continued non-GAAP operating margin expansion, mid-teens non-GAAP earnings per share growth, and strong cash flow."

GAAP Results

On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $160.7 million, or $1.04 per share, compared to $254.3 million, or $1.66 per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. GAAP net income for fiscal year 2019 was $532.4 million, or $3.45 per share, compared to $432.5 million, or $2.82 per share, for fiscal year 2018.

Non-GAAP Results

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $177.1 million, or $1.15 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $119.6 million, or $0.78 per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2019 was $702.5 million, or $4.56 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $599.7 million, or $3.91 per share, for fiscal year 2018.

    Synopsys likewise gives its combined budgetary focuses to the fourth quarter and full financial year 2019, which do exclude any effect of future obtaining related exercises or expenses.
