MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), the world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design and manufacturing, today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended October 31, 2008.

"Synopsys delivered very good financial and operational results in Q4 and 2008, despite a marked change in the economic environment," said Aart de Geus, chairman and CEO of Synopsys. "While the global economic landscape is unpredictable, and leading to more conservative consumer and business practices, Synopsys is heading into 2009 with a solid financial, technical and business foundation."

GAAP Reconciliation

Synopsys continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP, but believes evaluating its ongoing operating results may not be as useful if an investor is limited to reviewing only GAAP financial measures. Accordingly, Synopsys presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Synopsys' operating results in a manner that focuses on what Synopsys believes to be its ongoing business operations and what Synopsys uses to evaluate its ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Synopsys' management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Synopsys' management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes: (i) share-based compensation; (ii) the amortization of acquired intangible assets and in-process research and development charges; (iii) facilities realignment charges; (iv) other significant items, including a tax benefit from a settlement with the Internal Revenue Service and the effect of other litigation settlements; and (v) the income tax effect of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments from the provision for income taxes; and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of Synopsys' business and for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Whenever Synopsys uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed below.
