12/03/2020 | 03:57am EST

Forward-Looking Statements

This presentation contains forward-looking statements including, but not limited to, statements regarding Synopsys' short-term and long-term financial targets, expectations and objectives; business outlook, opportunities and strategies; customer demand and market expansion; strategies related to our products and technology; our planned product releases and capabilities; industry growth rates; software trends; planned acquisitions and buybacks; our expected tax rate; the expected impact of U.S. and foreign government action on our results; and the expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, time frames or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements. Such risks, uncertainties and factors include, but are not limited to: risks from the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated economic downturn on our business, operations and financial condition; uncertainty in the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industries; consolidation among our customers and our dependence on a relatively small number of large customers; risks and compliance obligations relating to the global nature of our operations as well as actions by the U.S. or foreign governments, such as measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic or the imposition of additional tariffs or export restrictions; macroeconomic conditions and uncertainty in the global economy; fluctuation of our operating results; increased variability in our revenue due to the adoption of ASC 606, including the resulting increase in recognizing upfront revenue as a percentage of total revenue; and more.

Additional information on potential risks, uncertainties and other factors that could affect Synopsys' results is included in filings it makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, including in the sections entitled "Risk Factors" in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2019 and in its latest Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The information provided herein is as of December 2, 2020. Synopsys undertakes no duty, and does not

intend, to update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless required by law.

L-T growth: mid-high single-digits*

* These multi-year objectives are provided as of December 2, 2020

Long-Term Financial Objectives1

  • While the results in any given period may vary due to acquisitions or other near-term priorities, our primary long-term objective is to drive double-digit non-GAAP EPS growth on a multi-year basis, through a mix of the following elements:

  • Grow total revenue2 generally in the high single-digit range:

  • Drive non-GAAP operating margin into the high-twenties by 2021 and greater than 30% longer-term

  • Utilize our strong cash flow primarily for M&A and share buybacks

    • 1. These multi-year objectives are provided as of December 2, 2020

    • 2. Period to period fluctuations are a normal element of our business, driven particularly by timing of hardware and IP deliveries. Variability, which increased as a result of ASC 606 adoption, should be expected.
