Synopsys Acquires Magma!?!?!?


Summary of MAGMA DESIGN AUTOMATION INC - Yahoo! Finance

This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and results appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and with Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the fiscal year ended May 1, 2011, as amended . Throughout this section, and elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, we make forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Any statements that do not relate to historical or current facts or matters are forward-looking statements. You can often identify these and other forward-looking statements by terms such as "becoming," "may," "will," "should," "predicts," "potential," "continue," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "seeks," "expects," "plans," "intends," the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology, or the use of future tense. Statements concerning current conditions may also be forward-looking if they imply a continuation of current conditions. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:
� our expectations regarding our proposed merger transaction with Synopsys, including the expected closing date of the proposed merger � our belief that our current facilities are adequate to support our current and near-term operations
� our expectations about future revenue , including the product sources of such future revenue, and our belief that revenue fluctuations are a result of timing of customer purchases of service
� our expectation that we will attain a certain level of cash flow from license sales, maintenance agreements, consulting contracts, customer contracts, acquired workforce and acquired developed technologies and patents
our expectation that our sales cycle will lengthen ?
our expectation that we will generally continue to depend upon a relatively small number of customers for a substantial portion of our revenue
� our belief that growth rates in the semiconductor market have began to recover
� our expectation that we will retain future earnings, if any, to fund the development and growth of our business
� our expectations concerning our backlog orders
� our belief that we have sufficient capital resources to fund our anticipated operating and working capital requirements, capital investments and debt service
� our expected capital expenditures during fiscal 2012 and their expected purposes, and our expected sources of such capital expenditures
� our belief that our acquisitions will enable us to compete successfully in the EDA industry and our expectation that we will be able to make acquisitions in the future
� our expectation that we will be able to continue to use earnout arrangements to consummate our acquisitions and our belief that these arrangements will not complicate integration efforts

Hmmm. Fact check, please.

"That article couldn't be more wrong about Mentor. Mentor will be the biggest winner from this merger. Caliber will now eat more market share and Cadence will have no option but to acquire it. Cadence will be the biggest loser from SNPS's acquisition of LAVA. Not Mentor!"

Not true. The Magma Quartz DRC tool that competes with Calibre has no market share. The only big name company that uses it is Nvidia and they also use Calibre for sign-off, Quartz is not a sign-off tool at any of the foundries at any node.

The Nvidia business will go to Synopsys (my opinion) not Cadence or Mentor.
