Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release regarding the company’s guidance for future periods constitute “forward-looking” statements based on current expectations within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the company or industry results to be materially different from any results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the following: (i) uncertainty associated with the announcement and pendency of our agreement to be acquired by U.S.-based entities affiliated with Siemens AG could adversely affect our business and relationships with customers; (ii) continued economic weakness in the European Union, China, Japan or other countries, and the adverse impact of such weakness on the company’s customers in those regions; (iii) the company’s ability to successfully update existing hardware and software products and offer new products and services that compete in the highly competitive EDA industry, including the risk of obsolescence for our hardware products; (iv) effects of customer mergers, divestitures or shutdowns of business units or divisions, customer seasonal purchasing patterns and the timing of significant orders which may negatively or positively impact the company’s quarterly results of operations; (v) effects of the volatility of foreign currency fluctuations on the company’s business and operating results; (vi) product bundling or discounting of products and services by competitors, which could force the company to lower its prices or offer other more favorable terms to customers, or result in loss of business; (vii) changes in accounting or reporting rules or interpretations, including new rules affecting revenue recognition; (viii) the impact of audits by taxing authorities, or changes in applicable tax laws, regulations or enforcement practices; (ix) political and economic uncertainty regarding Britain’s exit from the EU; (x) effects of unanticipated shifts in product mix on gross margin; and (x) litigation; all as may be discussed in more detail under the heading “Risk Factors” in the company’s most recent Form 10-K or Form 10-Q. Given these uncertainties, prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. In addition, statements regarding guidance do not reflect potential impacts of mergers or acquisitions that have not been announced or closed as of the time the statements are made. Mentor Graphics disclaims any obligation to update any such factors or to publicly announce the results of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements to reflect future events or developments.
