Synopsys Update 2012!

Synopsys Update 2012!
by Daniel Nenni on 05-28-2012 at 10:22 am

 Synopsys just delivered second quarter 2012 results with improved revenue on a year-over-year basis. Unfortunately operating expenses are said to be out of control. I’m not a stock guy so for more financial information and analysis try the Motley Fool article HERE.

The interesting thing to note is that Synopsys still has a pile of cash, some $800M, so expect more acquisitions in all areas of the business especially IP, in my opinion. The IP business is a clear differentiator for Synopsys and they are running away with it.

You can tell a lot about a company from their DAC plan. Synopsys has gone AMS mobile this year:
