SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today announced results for the third quarter of 2020.
Cadence reported third quarter 2020 revenue of $667 million, compared to revenue of $580 million reported for the same period in 2019. On a GAAP basis, Cadence achieved operating margin of 25 percent and recognized net income of $162 million, or $0.58 per share on a diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2020, compared to operating margin of 21 percent and net income of $102 million, or $0.36 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2019.

Using the non-GAAP measure defined below, operating margin for the third quarter of 2020 was 36 percent and net income was $197 million, or $0.70 per share on a diluted basis, compared to operating margin of 32 percent and net income of $153 million, or $0.54 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period in 2019.
“Cadence delivered outstanding results in the third quarter by continuing to innovate and delight customers,” said Lip-Bu Tan, chief executive officer. “System and semiconductor design activity remains strong and our Intelligent System Design strategy uniquely positions us to enable our customers to realize their cutting-edge designs. In the third quarter we expanded the scale and scope of our relationship with a global marquee company, and I am especially pleased with the momentum of our new systems products.”

“We are raising our 2020 revenue and earnings guidance primarily due to higher second half hardware and IP sales activity in China and continuing progress in our System Design and Analysis business,” said John Wall, senior vice president and chief financial officer.

During the third quarter of 2020, Cadence repurchased $75 million of its common stock and the Board of Directors has increased the previously announced authorization by an additional $750 million. As of the end of the third quarter of 2020, approximately $869 million remained available under the authorization to repurchase Cadence common stock. The actual timing and amount of repurchases will be subject to business and market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements, stock price, acquisition opportunities and other factors.
