Investigation of Possible Securities Law Violations by Cadence Design Systems Inc. Announced

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2008 (LAWFUEL) — Roy Jacobs & Associates
announces that it is investigating Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
(“Cadence or the “Company”) (Nasdaq:CDNS) for possible securities law
violations resulting from its announcement that it expects to restate
its results for the first quarter and first half of 2008 to account for
$24 million of contract revenue that was improperly recognized in the
first quarter. The Company has admitted that the revenue relating to
these contracts should have been recognized over the duration of the
contracts. Cadence has been forced to delay announcement of its third
quarter results, pending restatement. Shares fell $1.10, or 25.5
percent, to close at $3.22 on October 23, 2008, following the company’s
announcement after the market closed the previous day. The Company’s
share price further declined on October 24, 2008.

announcement of the departure of the Company’s Chief Executive Michael
Fister, and four other senior executives, Kevin Bushby, executive vice
president of worldwide field operations, James Miller, executive vice
president in charge of Cadence’s product and technologies
organizations, William Porter, executive vice president and chief
administrative officer, and R.L. Smith McKeithen, executive vice
president of corporate affairs.
