“Typically, our customers had been negotiating contract renewals a quarter or two before their expiration,” said Walden C. Rhines, chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. “In this economic environment, customers are now waiting until the contracts come closer to expiration to renew. We expect a number of sizeable contracts to renew in the next several quarters, which should lead to a stronger fiscal 2010 than fiscal 2009.”
