Mentor Graphics Announces Revenues of $123M; Product

Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) today announced first quarter revenue was $123 million, up 13.5% from the first quarter of 1998, and earnings-per-share was $.07, before special charges. The product growth rate year-over-year for the quarter rose to 25%, making Mentor Graphics the fastest growing major electronic design automation company on total, as well as product revenue. (Photo: ) "Competitive wins across the business continue to drive our product revenue growth," said Walden C. Rhines, president and CEO of Mentor Graphics. "Our investment in next generation tools like the Calibre(R) physical verification solution is paying off with strong market-share gains, as we reap the benefit of the strong industry growth in deep sub-micron. Similarly, our IC Station(R) product bookings more than doubled as competitors' older products did not meet the need for leading-edge custom design acceleration tools that allow designers to quickly and efficiently trouble-shoot key areas of deep-submicron designs where traditional place-and-route tools fail." Earnings-per-share after special charges was a loss of $.13. Special charges related primarily to the completion of our acquisition of the minority equity position in Exemplar Logic, Quickturn Design Systems acquisition related expenses, and the restructure of some businesses. Total gross margin for the quarter was 75.7%, a first quarter record for Mentor Graphics. "The market is healthy and vibrant, and we remain bullish on the state of our business," said Gregory K. Hinckley, CFO and COO of Mentor Graphics. "North America remained strong, and we saw a resurgence in Asia. Additionally, Y2K issues seem to have helped us as customers consolidated their established flows in preparation for the new millennium. Our BoardStation(R) product took significant share in the printed circuit board market with bookings up over 100% year-on-year."
