"Synopsys delivered another outstanding quarter and is raising revenue and non-GAAP earnings per share guidance for the year. The age of digital intelligence is driving significant investments by traditional and new semiconductor and systems companies, as well as software developers across many industries. Our strategic investments over the past several years are paying off. Strong products and customer relationships in EDA and IP, as well as our rapid growth in software security and quality, are leading to double-digit revenue and non-GAAP earnings growth in 2018," said Aart de Geus, chairman and co-CEO of Synopsys. "This backdrop provides a solid foundation for continued growth and increased operating leverage in the business."
