(Reuters) - Chip-design software maker Synopsys Inc (SNPS.O) will buy Taiwan's Springsoft Inc 2473.TW for $406 million, the United States-based company said on Friday, helping to strengthen its presence in Asian, European and U.S. semiconductor markets.
Synopsys will offer T$57, or $1.90 per share for all the outstanding shares of Springsoft. The deal is worth $305 million net of cash acquired, Synopsys said and will add to its 2013 non-GAAP earnings per share.
California-based Synopsys, which competes with Cadence Design Systems Inc (CDNS.O) and Mentor Graphics Corp MENT.O, bought Magma late last year, to add complementary technology to its portfolio.
