Mentor Graphics Announces Revenues of $119.5M; Earnings-

Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) today announced second quarter revenues of $119.5 million and earnings-per-share of $.09, before one-time charges. Mentor experienced continued strong growth in worldwide product bookings which were up almost 20%, and North American software bookings which were up about 40% from the quarter a year ago. Operating income before special charges nearly doubled from the second quarter of 1998 to $10.5 million. "While we are disappointed with our revenue, we took steps this quarter to strengthen our business with several key product announcements," said Walden C. Rhines, president and CEO of Mentor Graphics. "Our Calibre physical verification product portfolio which continues to take market share, grew with the availability of integrated optical and process correction software to improve the yields of customers' wafer fabs. We also shipped the second release of the industry's only integrated field-programmable gate-array (FPGA) solution, Packaged Power. Lastly, we continue to build our leadership in design reuse with the announcement of the QuickUse Development System and a multi- million dollar engagement from Toshiba for it." Earnings after charges were essentially break-even. One-time charges were related to a business divestiture and litigation settlement expenses. Revenue was affected by a re-alignment of the HDL division's distribution channels that occurred in the first quarter. Additionally, subscription-licensing contracts increased significantly for the quarter. Subscription licensing recognizes revenue over the life of the contract, which significantly reduces recognizable revenue in a current quarter. "We see multi-hundred million dollar opportunities in two key markets, physical verification and FPGA software," said Gregory K. Hinckley, CFO and COO of Mentor Graphics. "Our Calibre physical verification product revenue nearly doubled over the second quarter of 1998 in a market expected to be a couple of hundred million dollars by 2002. Additionally, we are focusing on growing our HDL division's leadership in FPGA software, expected to be a several hundred million dollar market by 2002." Mentor Graphics Corporation is a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products and consulting services for the world's largest electronics and semiconductor companies. Established in 1981, the company reported revenues over the last 12 months of over $500 million and employs approximately 2,600 people worldwide. Company headquarters are located at 8005 S.W.
