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 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.
