SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Magma® Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq:LAVA), a provider of chip design software, today reported revenue of $38.3 million for its fiscal 2012 second quarter ended Oct. 30, 2011, up 13 percent from the $33.9 million reported in the year-ago second quarter.

"During the second quarter, Magma made great business and technical progress—adding a record number of new logos and generating positive cash flow for the 11th consecutive quarter," said Rajeev Madhavan, Magma chairman and chief executive officer. "Our product portfolio is the strongest it's ever been, and as a result, the customer adoption rate is accelerating. The momentum of the Titan™ analog implementation and optimization system continues to grow with more than 30 customers now deploying it in their design flows. Our core Talus® implementation platform added 4 new logos and 8 existing customers extended their contracts. Our sign-off tools gained traction this quarter with Tekton™ now in use by more than 25 customers and QCP™ adding 10 new logos. The FineSim™ circuit simulator added 9 new logos."

Additional information about product enhancements and customer adoption is available in Magma's Second Quarter Product Update on the Magma website at www.magma-da.com/2Q2012_Update.

On November 30, 2011, Magma announced the company has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Synopsys (Nasdaq:SNPS), a world leader in software and IP used in the design, verification and manufacture of electronic components and systems. The combination of the two companies' technologies, development capabilities, support teams and sales channels will provide chip designers with greater access to state-of-the art electronic design automation (EDA) solutions that enable more profitable silicon.

Conference Call Canceled

Due to the acquisition announcement Magma will not be holding a conference call to discuss fiscal second quarter results.

GAAP Results

In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Magma reported net income of $3.0 million, or $0.04 per share (basic and diluted) for the second quarter, compared to a net loss of $(2.7) million, or $(0.04) per share (basic and diluted), for the year-ago second quarter.

Non-GAAP Results

Magma's non-GAAP net income was $7.1 million for the second quarter, or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted), which compares to non-GAAP net income of $4.3 million, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), for the year-ago second quarter.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 excludes the effects of amortization of developed technology, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt premium accretion, charges associated with equity and other investments, restructuring charges, other legal and accounting costs related to a special investigation, and the related provision for income taxes. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 excludes the effects of amortization of developed technology, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt premium accretion, inducement fees on conversion of debt, charges associated with equity and other investments, restructuring charges and the related provision for income taxes. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP results to GAAP results is included in this press release.

In the second quarter, Magma generated cash flow from operations of approximately $2.4 million.

Business Outlook

Due to the pendency of the acquisition of Magma by Synopsys announced on November 30, 2011, Magma is withdrawing all prior financial guidance and will no longer provide any new financial guidance.

Presentation and Disclosure of Revenue

For the second quarter of fiscal 2012, revenue and cost of revenue is reported in Magma's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations in two categories: Licenses and Services. Previously, revenue and cost of revenue was reported in three categories: Licenses, Bundled licenses and services, and Services. Magma management has concluded that the results of the Bundled Licenses and Services category of revenue do not indicate a material trend in the historical or future performance of its operations. Bundled licenses and services revenue and cost of revenue are divided into their component parts and included with either Licenses or Services. Presentation of prior period revenue and cost of revenue has been adjusted to conform to the current period.

GAAP Reconciliation

Magma provides non-GAAP financial information to assist investors in assessing its current and future operations in the way that Magma's management evaluates those operations. Magma believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to investors by excluding the effect of some expenses that are required to be recorded under GAAP but that Magma believes are not indicative of Magma's core operating results, or that are expected to be incurred over a limited period of time.

Magma's management evaluates and makes operating decisions about its business operations primarily based on bookings, revenue and the core costs of those business operations. Management believes that the amortization of developed technology and intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt discount/premium accretion, inducement fees on conversion of debt, charges associated with equity and other investments, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges and the related provision for income taxes, and other significant unusual items are not operating costs of its core software and service business operations. Therefore, management presents non-GAAP financial measures, along with GAAP measures, in this earnings release by excluding these items from the period expenses. The income statement line items affected are as follows: (1) cost of revenue, licenses;  (2) cost of revenue, services; (3) operating expenses, research and development; (4) operating expenses, sales and marketing; (5) operating expenses, general and administrative; (6) operating expenses, amortization of intangible assets; (7) operating expenses, restructuring charges; (8) other income (expense), net; (9) provision for income taxes; and (10) net income (loss) per share.

For each such non-GAAP financial measure, the adjustment provides management with information about Magma's underlying operating performance that enables a more meaningful comparison of its financial results in different reporting periods. For example, since Magma does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management excludes acquisition-related charges, such as amortization of intangible assets, to make more consistent and meaningful evaluations of Magma's operating expenses. Similarly, since Magma does not undertake significant restructuring or realignments on a predictable cycle, management would have difficulty evaluating Magma's profitability as measured by gross profit, operating profit, income before taxes and net income on a period-to-period basis unless it excluded these charges. Management also uses these measures to help make budgeting decisions between those expenses that affect operating expenses and operating margin (such as research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expenses), and those expenses that affect cost of revenue and gross margin (such as product development expenses).

Further, the availability of non-GAAP financial information helps management track actual performance relative to financial targets, including both internal targets and publicly announced targets. Making this non-GAAP financial information available also helps investors compare Magma's performance with the announced operating results of its principal competitors, which regularly provide similar non-GAAP financial information.

Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that management must exercise judgment in determining whether some types of charges, such as stock-based compensation relating to stock grants and acquisition-related charges, should be excluded from non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes, however, that providing this non-GAAP financial information facilitates consistent comparison of Magma's financial performance over time. Magma has historically provided non-GAAP results to the investment community, not as an alternative but as a supplement to GAAP information, to enable investors to evaluate Magma's core operating performance in the way that management does.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include statements in quotations from Magma's management. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from Magma's current expectations. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: delays in or failure to satisfy required conditions to the closing of the proposed merger, including the receipt of required regulatory approvals with respect to the transaction and approval of the acquisition by Magma's stockholders; failure to consummate or delay in consummating the transaction for other reasons; the possibility that the expected benefits of the transaction may not materialize as expected; disruption from the transaction making it more difficult to maintain relationships with customers and employees; our reliance on a small number of customers for a significant portion of our revenue, which could cause our revenue to decline if these customers delay orders or fail to renew licenses or if we are unable to maintain or develop relationships with current or potential customers; the effect of restrictive covenants in our debt arrangements which could limit our ability to operate our business; the substantial amount of Magma's indebtedness, which could adversely affect our financial position; our ability to generate sufficient operating cash flow or alternatively obtain external financing; customer payment defaults that may cause us to be unable to recognize revenue from backlog, and changes in the type of orders comprising backlog that could affect the proportion of revenue recognized from backlog each quarter, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations; actions by our competitors that hold a large share of the electronic design automation (EDA) market and  increasing competition among EDA vendors as customers tightly control their EDA spending and use fewer vendors to meet their needs; weaker-than-anticipated sales of Magma's products and services; weakness in the semiconductor or electronic systems industries; a potential failure of customers to adopt, or to adopt at a sufficiently fast rate, 28-nanometer and smaller design geometries on a large scale; Magma's ability to integrate acquired businesses and technologies and keep pace with evolving technology standards; the possibility of litigation (including related to the proposed merger) and potentially higher-than-anticipated costs of litigation related to patent infringement and other intellectual property claims; potentially higher-than-anticipated costs of compliance with regulatory requirements, including those relating to internal control over financial reporting; the ability to manage expanding operations; the ability to attract and retain the key management and technical personnel needed to operate Magma successfully; the ability to continue to deliver competitive products to customers; and changes in accounting rules. Further discussion of these and other potential risk factors may be found in Magma's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (www.sec.gov), including its Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2011. Magma undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.
