“In our 37 years as a company, Synopsys has driven a roughly 10 million-fold increase in chip design productivity. This not only enabled the exponential ambition of the semiconductor industry, it, in turn, radically impacted the world,” said Aart de Geus, chair and CEO of Synopsys. “Our momentum continued in 2023 as we substantially expanded our AI-driven design differentiation, our semiconductor IP portfolio, and our multi-die system solutions. We also visibly strengthened our customers’ differentiation through unique and deep collaborations. Looking ahead, I have great confidence, expectations, and enthusiasm for our future as Sassine Ghazi becomes Synopsys’ CEO.”

“Despite global macroeconomic uncertainty, 2023 was a year of record revenue and profitability for Synopsys as silicon R&D and design-starts remain robust. I want to extend my deepest thanks to our team for their stellar execution and to our partners and customers for their commitment,” said Sassine Ghazi, president and COO of Synopsys. “We start 2024 with tremendous forward momentum driven by a resilient business model, technology trends – chief among them AI – that create a rising tide for our business, and customers who continue to prioritize investments in the chips and systems that position them for the future. I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity to propel Synopsys to the next wave of growth as its CEO.”

“We had strong execution and outperformed our guidance in the fourth quarter, which capped a record financial year for Synopsys. In 2023, on a non-GAAP basis, record earnings per share were up 26% year-over-year, we achieved record operating margins, and expanded our backlog to $8.6 billion,” said Synopsys CFO, Shelagh Glaser. “We are confident in our outlook for continued, double-digit revenue growth in the year ahead based on our technology leadership, strong customer momentum and the resiliency of our time-based business model.”
