Safe Harbor and GAAP Reconciliation Statement
This Webcast contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements regarding Synopsys’ short-term and long-term financial targets, expectations and objectives; strategies related to our products and technology; business and market outlook, opportunities and strategies; customer demand and market expansion; our planned product releases and capabilities; industry growth rates; software trends; planned acquisitions and stock repurchases; our expected tax rate; the expected impact of U.S. and foreign government actions and regulatory changes on our financial results; and the continued 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 continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and on our business, operations and financial condition; macroeconomic conditions and uncertainty in the global economy; uncertainty in the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industries; the highly competitive industry we operate in; 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 the imposition of additional tariffs or export restrictions; and more. Additional information on potential risks, uncertainties and other factors that could affect Synopsys' results is included in filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, including in the sections entitled "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2021 and in our latest Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The information provided herein is as of May 18, 2022. Although this Webcast is expected to remain available on Synopsys’ website through the date of the earnings results call for the third quarter of fiscal year 2022, its continued availability through such date does not mean that Synopsys is reaffirming or confirming its continued validity. 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.
This Webcast also contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission in Regulation G. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures are included in the second quarter fiscal year 2022 earnings release and financial supplement, each dated May 18, 2022, and available on Synopsys' website at www.synopsys.com. Additional information about such reconciliations can be found in Synopsys’ Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 18, 2022.
