SYNOPSYS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
Note 1. Description of Business
Synopsys, Inc. (Synopsys, we, our or us) provides products and services used across the entire Silicon to Software spectrum to bring Smart Everything to life. From engineers creating advanced semiconductors to product teams developing advanced electronic systems, our customers trust that our technologies will enable them to meet new requirements for energy efficiency, reliability, mobility, security and more.
We are a global leader in supplying the electronic design automation (EDA) software that engineers use to design and test integrated circuits (ICs), also known as chips or silicon. We provide software and hardware used to validate the electronic systems that incorporate chips and the software that runs on them, including cloud-based digital design flow to boost chip-design development productivity. We also provide technical services and support to help our customers develop advanced chips and electronic systems. These products and services are part of our Design Automation segment.
We also offer a broad and comprehensive portfolio of semiconductor intellectual property (IP) products, which are pre-designed circuits that engineers use as components of larger chip designs rather than designing those circuits themselves. These products and services are part of our Design IP segment.
We are also a leading provider of software tools and services that improve the security, quality and compliance of software in a wide variety of industries, including electronics, financial services, automotive, medicine, energy and industrials. These tools and services are part of our Software Integrity business. On May 5, 2024, we entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement (the Purchase Agreement) by and between Synopsys and Sapphire Software Buyer, Inc. (Buyer), an entity controlled by funds affiliated with Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. and Francisco Partners (together, the Sponsors), pursuant to which we will sell our Software Integrity business. See Note 3. Discontinued Operations of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Basis of Presentation
We have prepared the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Pursuant to these rules and regulations, we have condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures we normally include in our annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). The condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited but, in management’s opinion, we have made all adjustments (consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments, except as otherwise indicated) necessary for a fair presentation of our quarterly results. Our interim period operating results do not necessarily indicate the results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year. These financial statements and accompanying notes should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2023 as filed with the SEC on December 12, 2023 (our Annual Report).
Use of Estimates. To prepare financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP, management must make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates and could have a material impact on our operating results and financial position.
Principles of Consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Fiscal Year and Fiscal Quarter End. Our fiscal year ends on the Saturday nearest to October 31 and consists of 52 weeks, with the exception that approximately every five years, we have a 53-week year. When a 53-week year occurs, we include the additional week in the first quarter to realign fiscal quarters with calendar quarters. Fiscal 2024 is a 53-week year ending on November 2, 2024, which impacts our revenue, expenses and operating results. Fiscal 2023 was a 52-week year and ended on October 28, 2023.
8


Our results of operations for the first six months of fiscal 2024 and 2023 included 27 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively, and ended on May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, respectively. For presentation purposes, the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes refer to the closest calendar month end.
Software Integrity Divestiture. During the second quarter of fiscal 2024, we determined that our Software Integrity business met the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation, and, as a result, Software Integrity’s historical financial results are reflected in our consolidated financial statements as discontinued operations, and assets and liabilities were retrospectively reclassified as assets and liabilities held for sale. We did not allocate any general corporate overhead to discontinued operations. See Note 3. Discontinued Operations of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Significant Accounting Policies. There have been no material changes to our significant accounting policies included in our Annual Report.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2022-03, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions, which applies to all equity securities measured at fair value that are subject to contractual sale restrictions. This change prohibits entities from taking into account contractual restrictions on the sale of equity securities when estimating fair value and introduces required disclosures for such transactions. The ASU will become effective for us beginning on November 1, 2024 and will be applied prospectively. Early adoption is permitted. Any future impact from the adoption of this ASU will depend on the facts and circumstances of future transactions.
In November 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures. The ASU expands public entities’ segment disclosures by requiring disclosure of significant segment expenses that are regularly provided to the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) and included within each reported measure of segment profit or loss, an amount and description of its composition for other segment items, and interim disclosures of a reportable segment’s profit or loss and assets. The ASU is effective for our annual reports beginning in the fiscal year 2025, and interim period reports beginning in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2026 on a retrospective basis. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of adopting this ASU on our consolidated financial statements and disclosures.
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures, which enhances the transparency and decision usefulness of income tax disclosures primarily through changes to the rate reconciliation and income taxes paid information. The ASU will become effective for us beginning on November 1, 2025 and will be applied on a prospective basis, with a retrospective option. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
Note 3. Discontinued Operations
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions specified therein, we will sell our Software Integrity business to Buyer (the Software Integrity Divestiture) for a purchase price of up to $2.1 billion in cash, comprised of: (i) $1.5 billion, payable at closing; (ii) $125 million, payable in equal installments over five fiscal quarters beginning on the first business day after the day that is the 75th day of our first full fiscal quarter following the closing, subject to acceleration at our option prior to the closing of our pending acquisition of ANSYS, Inc. (Ansys); and (iii) up to $475 million, payable upon the Sponsors achieving a specified rate of return in the event of one or more potential liquidity transactions.
The Software Integrity Divestiture, which was unanimously approved by our Board of Directors, is currently expected to close in the second half of 2024, subject to customary closing conditions including the receipt of required regulatory approvals.
9


In accordance with the Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 205-20-45-1B, management believes that the Software Integrity Divestiture has met the criteria to be disclosed as discontinued operations as it represents a significant strategic shift that has a major effect on our operations and financial results. The results of the Software Integrity business are presented as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of income and, as such, have been excluded from both continuing operations and segment results for all periods presented. Further, we reclassified the assets and liabilities of Software Integrity business as assets and liabilities held for sale in the condensed consolidated statements of balance sheets for all periods presented. The condensed consolidated statements of cash flows are presented on a consolidated basis for both continuing operations and discontinued operations. We did not allocate any general corporate overhead to the Software Integrity business. Unless otherwise noted, reference within these Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements relates to continuing operations.
The financial results of the Software Integrity business are presented as income from discontinued operations, net of income taxes on our condensed consolidated statements of income.

Note 4. Pending Acquisition of Ansys
On January 15, 2024, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Ansys, a provider of broad engineering simulation and analysis software and services, in a cash-and-stock transaction (the Ansys Merger) that values Ansys at approximately $35.0 billion, based on the closing price of Synopsys common stock on December 21, 2023.
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Ansys Merger (the Effective Time), each share of Ansys common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (with certain exceptions set forth in the Merger Agreement) will be converted into the right to receive 0.3450 (the Exchange Ratio) of a share of Synopsys common stock and $197.00 in cash, without interest. The Merger Agreement also provides for Synopsys’ assumption of certain outstanding Ansys options and other unvested Ansys equity awards held by continuing Ansys employees. If the stock consideration to be issued by Synopsys in connection with the Ansys Merger would exceed 19.9999% of the shares of Synopsys common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time,
11


the Exchange Ratio will be reduced to the minimum extent necessary to ensure that the aggregate number of shares of Synopsys common stock to be issued in connection with the Ansys Merger does not exceed such threshold, and the cash consideration will be correspondingly increased to offset such adjustment.
The Ansys Merger was approved by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Ansys common stock on May 22, 2024 and is anticipated to close in the first half of calendar year 2025. The Ansys Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions, including the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvement Act of 1976, as amended, the clearance of the Ansys Merger under certain other antitrust and foreign investment regimes, and the continued effectiveness of the registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-277912) filed by us on March 14, 2024 and declared effective by the SEC on April 17, 2024. We and Ansys each have termination rights under the Merger Agreement. A fee of $1.5 billion may be payable by us to Ansys, or a fee of $950.0 million may be payable by Ansys to us, upon termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, each as more fully described in the Merger Agreement.
In connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement, we entered into a commitment letter on January 15, 2024 (the Bridge Commitment Letter) with certain financial institutions that committed to provide, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, a senior unsecured bridge facility (the Bridge Commitment). The Bridge Commitment currently provides for an aggregate principal amount of up to $11.7 billion. On February 13, 2024, we entered into a term loan facility credit agreement (the Term Loan Agreement), which provides us with the ability to borrow up to $4.3 billion at the closing of the Ansys Merger, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions for similar facilities, for the purpose of financing a portion of the cash consideration to be paid in the Ansys Merger and paying related fees and expenses in connection with the Ansys Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement. See Note 11. Bridge Commitment Letter, Term Loan and Revolving Credit Facilities of the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the Bridge Commitment and the Term Loan Agreement.
Note 5. Business Combinations
During the six months ended April 30, 2024, we completed two acquisitions for aggregate purchase consideration of $139.5 million, net of cash acquired. The purchase consideration was allocated as follows: $71.7 million to identifiable intangible assets, $82.7 million to goodwill, and $14.9 million to net tangible liabilities. The total purchase consideration is preliminary, and as additional information becomes available, we may further revise it during the remainder of the measurement period, which will not exceed 12 months from the closing of the acquisition. The goodwill recognized from these acquisitions, of which $47.9 million was attributable to the Design Automation reporting unit and $34.8 million was attributable to the Design IP reporting unit, was not deductible for income tax purposes.
We have included the financial results of these acquisitions in our condensed consolidated financial statements from the date of each acquisition. These results were not material to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Transaction costs were $25.3 million and $57.2 million during the three and six months ended April 30, 2024, respectively. Transaction costs were $2.6 million and $5.0 million during the three and six months ended April 30, 2023, respectively. These costs mainly consisted of professional fees and administrative costs for closed and pending acquisitions and were expensed as incurred in our condensed consolidated statements of income.

Deferred revenue$1,765,247 $1,710,288 
During the three and six months ended April 30, 2024, we recognized revenue of $383.8 million and $1.1 billion, respectively, that was included in the deferred revenue balance as of October 31, 2023, including previously unfulfilled contracts that have expired and are no longer subject to an implied promise to provide future services.
Contracted but unsatisfied or partially unsatisfied performance obligations (backlog) were approximately $7.9 billion as of April 30, 2024, which includes $1.2 billion in non-cancellable Flexible Spending Account (FSA) commitments from customers where actual product selection and quantities of specific products or services are to be determined by customers at a later date. We have elected to exclude future sales-based royalty payments from the remaining performance obligations. Approximately 40% of the backlog as of April 30, 2024, excluding non-cancellable FSA, is expected to be recognized as revenue over the next 12 months, with the remainder recognized thereafter. The majority of the remaining backlog is expected to be recognized in the following three years.
During the three and six months ended April 30, 2024, we recognized $27.4 million and $52.8 million, respectively, from performance obligations satisfied from sales-based royalties earned during the periods. During the three and six months ended April 30, 2023, we recognized $26.9 million and $51.6 million, respectively, from performance obligations satisfied from sales-based royalties earned during the periods.
