LOGICVISION, INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1. Basis of Presentation

     The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of LogicVision, Inc. (“we,” “our,” “LogicVision” or the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31.

     The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to state fairly the financial position of the Company and its results of operations and cash flows. The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements contained herein should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and footnotes for the year ended December 31, 2008 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC.

     The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

     We have incurred substantial losses and negative cash flows from operations since inception. For the year ended December 31, 2008, we incurred a net loss of approximately $3.5 million and positive cash flows from operations of approximately $1.6 million. As of June 30, 2009, we had an accumulated deficit of approximately $103.7 million. While management believes that our current funds will be sufficient to enable us to meet our planned expenditures through at least December 31, 2009, we are subject to risks associated with companies of similar size and stage of development, including but not limited to, dependence on key individuals, competition from substitute services and larger companies, and the continued successful development and marketing of our products and services. If anticipated operating results are not achieved, management has the intent and believes it has the ability to delay or reduce expenditures so as not to require additional financing resources. Failure to generate sufficient cash flows from operations, raise additional capital or reduce certain discretionary spending could have a material adverse effect on the Company's ability to achieve its intended business objectives.

Reclassifications

     Certain amounts in the prior year financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Specifically, we have reclassified certain prior year amounts relating to the classification of revenues to show revenues from bundled time-based licenses and maintenance revenues together. We believe that the revised presentation is a better way to reflect our revenue stream. The effects of these reclassifications had no impact on previously reported total revenues, gross profit or net income.

Stock-Based Compensation Expense

     Stock-based compensation expense recognized under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 123 (revised 2004) (“SFAS 123(R)”) Share-Based Payment for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 was $234,000 and $293,000, respectively, which consisted of stock-based compensation expense related to employee stock options and the employee stock purchase plan.

5


     Stock-based compensation expense for the six months ended June 30, 2008 includes compensation expense recognized as a result of the consummation of the Company’s stock option exchange offer on March 8, 2007, in accordance with SFAS 123(R); compensation cost associated with the incremental fair value of these option awards was calculated at approximately $579,000 using the Black-Scholes valuation option pricing model. To this total was added the remaining unamortized fair value of any exchanged options originally granted of $21,000 to arrive at a total fair value of $600,000 to be amortized to expense over the vesting period of these newly exchanged options. Of this amount, $548,000 was recognized as compensation expense for the year ended December 31, 2007. The remaining amount was fully recognized as compensation expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

     Compensation expense for all share-based payment awards is recognized using the multiple option approach. As stock-based compensation expense recognized in the consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, is based on awards ultimately expected to vest, it has been reduced for estimated forfeitures. SFAS 123(R) requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

     The Company’s determination of fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. Expected volatilities are based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock. The expected term of the options granted represents the period of time that options are expected to be outstanding, based on historical information. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee terminations. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with remaining terms similar to the expected term of the Company’s equity awards. The Company does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future and therefore used an expected dividend yield of zero.

     There were no stock options granted during the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Net Loss Per Share

     SFAS 128, “Earnings Per Share,” requires a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”). Basic EPS excludes dilution and is computed by dividing net income or loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that would occur if outstanding securities to issue common stock were exercised or converted to common stock. Diluted net loss per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 does not differ from basic net loss per share since potential shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants are anti-dilutive under the treasury stock method.

     The following table presents the calculation of the basic and diluted net loss per share (in thousands, except per share amounts):

Three Months Ended Six Months Ended
June 30, June 30,
     2009      2008      2009      2008
Numerator - Basic and Diluted
     Net loss $     (262 ) $     (997 ) $     (366 ) $     (2,263 )
 
Denominator - Basic and Diluted
Weighted average common stock outstanding 9,474 9,600 9,471 9,637
 
          Basic and Diluted net loss per share $ (0.03 ) $ (0.10 ) $ (0.04 ) $ (0.23 )

6 


      Options and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2.4 million shares of common stock outstanding at June 30, 2009 and 2.3 million shares at June 30, 2008 were excluded from the computation of diluted shares because of their antidilutive effect on net loss per share for the three and six months then ended.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

      In May 2009 the FASB issued and we adopted SFAS No. 165, Subsequent Events, or SFAS 165. SFAS 165 establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. SFAS 165 requires the disclosure of the date through which an entity has evaluated subsequent events and the basis for that date, that is, whether the date represents the date the financial statements were issued or were available to be issued. SFAS 165 is effective in the first interim period ending after June 15, 2009.

      In June 2009 the FASB issued SFAS No. 167, Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R), or SFAS 167, that will change how we determine when an entity that is insufficiently capitalized or is not controlled through voting (or similar rights) should be consolidated. Under SFAS No. 167, determining whether a company is required to consolidate an entity will be based on, among other things, an entity’s purpose and design and a company’s ability to direct the activities of the entity that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance. SFAS 167 is effective for financial statements after January 1, 2010.

      In June 2009 the FASB issued SFAS No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting, or SFAS 168. SFAS 168 represents the last numbered standard to be issued by FASB under the old (pre-Codification) numbering system, and amends the GAAP hierarchy established under SFAS 162. On July 1, 2009 the FASB launched FASB’s new Codification entitled The FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The Codification will supersede all existing non-SEC accounting and reporting standards. SFAS 168 is effective in the first interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. This pronouncement will have no effect on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption other than references to GAAP will be changed.

Note 2. Cash and Cash Equivalents and Investments

     The Company considers all highly liquid investment instruments purchased with original maturities of three months or less at the acquisition date to be cash equivalents. Investment instruments purchased with original maturities of more than three months, which mature in less than twelve months, are considered to be short-term investments. All investments are classified as available-for-sale and are reported at fair value. Interest and realized gains and losses are included in interest and other income, net. Realized gains and losses are recognized based on the specific identification method.

     Cash, cash equivalents and investments consist of the following (in thousands):

June 30, December 31,
      2009       2008
Cash and cash equivalents:
     Cash $                  427 $     647
     Money market funds   5,931 8,452
     U.S. government agency notes   -     150
          Total cash and cash equivalents $ 6,358 $ 9,249
 
Short-term investments:
     U.S. government agency notes     - $ 150
          Total short-term investments $ - $ 150

7 


Note 3. Goodwill

     The Company evaluates goodwill at least on an annual basis (in the fourth quarter) and whenever events and changes in circumstances suggest that the carrying amount may not be recoverable from its estimated future cash flow. No assurances can be given that future evaluations of goodwill will not result in charges as a result of future impairment.

Note 4. Loan Agreement

     As of June 30, 2009, we had a loan agreement with a bank under which we may borrow, on a revolving basis, up to $2.0 million. The interest rate applicable to any outstanding amounts is determined by reference to LIBOR plus a stated margin, and is subject to daily adjustment. In connection with entering into the agreement, we granted the bank a security interest in all of our existing and after-acquired property, including, but not limited to, intellectual property, inventory and equipment. Under the agreement, we must comply with certain operating and reporting covenants as a condition to receiving credit extensions. If we fail to perform any of our obligations, violate any of our covenants, suffer a material adverse change in our business or financial condition or become insolvent under the agreement, the bank can declare any outstanding amounts immediately due and payable and cease advancing us money or extending us credit. The agreement expires on February 24, 2010. We are currently in compliance with all the operating and reporting covenants under the agreement and there are currently no borrowings outstanding.

Note 5. Income Taxes

     Effective January 1, 2007, the Company adopted the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN No. 48”), “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – An Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109,” which provisions included a two-step approach to recognizing, de-recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions accounted for in accordance with SFAS 109 “Accounting for Income Taxes” (“SFAS 109”). As a result of the implementation of FIN No. 48, the Company recognized an increase of approximately $0.6 million in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits and a decrease in the related reserve of the same amount. Therefore upon implementation of FIN No. 48, the Company recognized no material adjustment to the January 1, 2007 balance of retained earnings.

     Our continuing practice is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. As of June 30, 2009, the Company had no accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax matters.

     By the end of 2009, the Company expects to have no uncertain tax positions that would be reduced as a result of a lapse of the applicable statute of limitations. We do not anticipate the adjustments would result in a material change to our financial position.

     We file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdictions, and various states and foreign jurisdictions. The 1991 through 2008 tax years are open and may be subject to potential examination in one or more jurisdictions. The Company is not currently under federal, state or foreign income tax examination.

Note 6. Commitments and Contingencies

       Contractual Obligations

       The Company and its subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada rent office facilities under noncancelable operating leases which expire through July 2011. The Company and its subsidiaries are responsible for certain maintenance costs, taxes and insurance under the respective leases. Total future minimum payments under such operating leases, including estimated operating costs, and payments due under a capital lease and a software purchase commitment at June 30, 2009 were as follows (in thousands):

Operating             Purchase      
Year ending December 31, Leases Capital Lease Obligations Total
     2009 383 24 163   570
     2010   305 66     650 1,021
     2011 70     - 650   720
$      758 $      90 $      1,463 $      2,311

     Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

     The Company’s off-balance sheet arrangements consist solely of operating leases as described above.

     Indemnification Obligations

     The Company enters into standard license agreements in the ordinary course of business. Pursuant to these agreements, the Company agrees to indemnify its customers for losses suffered or incurred by them as a result of any patent, copyright, or other intellectual property infringement claim by any third party with respect to the Company’s products. These indemnification obligations have perpetual terms. The Company’s normal business practice is to limit the maximum amount of indemnification to the amount received from the customer. On occasion, the maximum amount of indemnification the Company may be required to make may exceed its normal business practices. The Company estimates the fair value of its indemnification obligations as insignificant, based upon its historical experience concerning product and patent infringement claims. Accordingly, the Company had no liabilities recorded for indemnification under these agreements as of June 30, 2009.

     The Company has agreements whereby its officers and directors are indemnified for certain events or occurrences while the officer or director is, or was, serving at the Company’s request in such capacity. The maximum potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is unlimited; however, the Company has a directors and officers insurance policy that reduces its exposure and enables the Company to recover a portion of future amounts paid. As a result of the Company’s insurance policy coverage, the Company believes the estimated fair value of these indemnification agreements is minimal. Accordingly, no liabilities have been recorded for these agreements as of June 30, 2009.

     Warranties

     The Company offers its customers a warranty that its products will conform to the documentation provided with the products. To date, there have been no payments or material costs incurred related to fulfilling these warranty obligations. Accordingly, the Company has no liabilities recorded for these warranties as of June 30, 2009. The Company assesses the need for a warranty reserve on a quarterly basis, and there can be no guarantee that a warranty reserve will not become necessary in the future.

Note 7. Concentration of Revenues and Credit Risks

     The Company has been dependent on a relatively small number of customers for a substantial portion of its revenue, although the customers comprising this group have changed from time to time. Customers accounting for more than 10 percent of revenue for the periods indicated below are as follows:

      Three Months Ended June 30,       Six Months Ended June 30,
2009       2008 2009       2008
Broadcom Corporation   28%   18%   26% 19%
LSI Corporation 16% 17% 16% 17%
NEC Corporation 14% 17% 14% 16%

     At June 30, 2009, three customers accounted for 20%, 20% and 11% of net accounts receivable, respectively. At December 31, 2008, four customers accounted for approximately 34%, 25%, 10% and 10% of net accounts receivable, respectively.

9


     Revenue from NEC has been derived from two distributors in the 2008 and 2009 quarterly periods. Prior to the three months ended June 30, 2009, revenue from NEC from each distributor did not constitute more than 10% of revenue. For the three months ended June 30, 2009, one of the distributor’s revenue from NEC accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s revenue, and accordingly, the combined revenue from distributors that has been derived from NEC has been reported in the table above.

Note 8. Comprehensive Loss

     Comprehensive loss is defined as the change in equity of a business enterprise during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from nonowner sources. SFAS 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income,” requires companies to classify items of other comprehensive income by their nature in the financial statements and display the accumulated balance of other comprehensive income separately from retained earnings and additional paid-in capital in the stockholders’ equity section of the balance sheet.

     The Company’s other comprehensive income (loss) consists primarily of adjustments to translate the financial statements of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries into U.S. dollars upon consolidation, and unrealized gains (losses) on available-for-sale investments. The functional currency of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries is the local currency and therefore, the translation adjustments of those statements into U.S. dollars are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), which is reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.

     For the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, comprehensive loss, which was comprised of the Company’s net loss for the periods and changes in foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains (losses) on investments were as follows (in thousands):

Note 9. Segment Reporting

     The Company has adopted SFAS 131, “Disclosure about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information”. Although the Company offers various design and manufacturing embedded test software products and services to its customers, the Company does not manage its operations by these products and services, but instead views the Company as one operating segment when making business decisions. The Company does not manage its operations on a geographical basis. Revenues attributed to the United States and to all foreign countries are based on the geographical location of the customers. The Company uses one measurement of profitability for its business.

Note 10. Proposed Merger

     On May 6, 2009, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Mentor Graphics Corporation, an Oregon corporation (“Mentor Graphics”), and Fulcrum Acquisition Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mentor Graphics (“Merger Sub”). Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, if applicable conditions are met, Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, and the Company will survive as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mentor Graphics (the “Merger”). The Merger Agreement has been approved by the Boards of Directors of each of the Company and Mentor Graphics, and is subject to the approval of the Company’s stockholders. If the Merger is completed, each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock will be converted into the right to receive 0.2006 shares of Mentor Graphics common stock (the “Exchange Ratio”). Outstanding options to purchase the Company’s common stock will be assumed by Mentor Graphics and converted upon completion of the Merger into stock options with respect to Mentor Graphics common stock, after giving effect to the Exchange Ratio (or, in Mentor Graphics’ discretion, Mentor Graphics will grant equivalent options under one of its equity plans in substitution of such options to purchase the Company’s common stock, after giving effect to the Exchange Ratio). Outstanding warrants to purchase the Company’s common stock will automatically terminate upon the Merger in accordance with their terms and will be converted into the right to receive a number of shares of Mentor Graphics common stock, if any, based on the Exchange Ratio. The Merger Agreement contains termination rights for both the Company and Mentor Graphics. Upon termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, the Company may be required to pay to Mentor Graphics a termination fee of $538,193 plus, subject to a cap of $403,645, the aggregate amount of reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Mentor Graphics.

       The LogicVision stockholders meeting is currently scheduled for August 18, 2009. During the three months and six months ended June 30, 2009, we recorded merger-related costs of $475,000 and $718,000, respectively.

Note 11. Subsequent Events

       In accordance with SFAS 165, we have evaluated subsequent events through July 30, 2009, the date of issuance of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. During this period we did not have any material recognizable subsequent events.

     LogicVision and the LogicVision logo are our registered trademarks. We also refer to trademarks of other corporations and organizations in this document.

Merger Agreement with Mentor Graphics

     On May 6, 2009, we entered into a merger agreement with Mentor Graphics Corporation pursuant to which Mentor Graphics has agreed to acquire us subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the merger agreement. The merger agreement was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both LogicVision and Mentor Graphics.

     At the effective time of the proposed merger, each issued and outstanding share of LogicVision common stock will be converted into the right to receive 0.2006 shares of Mentor Graphics common stock. The closing of the proposed merger is subject to the approval of LogicVision’s stockholders and other customary closing conditions. The LogicVision stockholders meeting to, among other things, approve the merger is currently scheduled for August 18, 2009.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

     LogicVision’s financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by management’s application of accounting policies. Critical accounting policies for LogicVision include revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts, valuation of investments, inventory, goodwill impairment, valuation of long-lived intangible assets, accounting for stock-based compensation, and accounting for income taxes, which are discussed in more detail under the caption “Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008.

     Stock-Based Compensation Expense

     Stock-based compensation expense recognized under SFAS 123(R) for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 was $234,000 and $293,000, respectively, which consisted of stock-based compensation expense related to employee stock options and the employee stock purchase plan.

     Stock-based compensation expense for the six months ended June 30, 2008 includes compensation expense recognized as a result of the consummation of the Company’s stock option exchange offer on March 8, 2007, in accordance with SFAS 123(R); compensation cost associated with the incremental fair value of these option awards was calculated at approximately $579,000 using the Black-Scholes valuation option pricing model. To this total was added the remaining unamortized fair value of any exchanged options originally granted of $21,000 to arrive at a total fair value of $600,000 to be amortized to expense over the vesting period of these newly exchanged options. Of this amount, $548,000 was recognized as compensation expense for the year ended December 31, 2007. The remaining amount was fully recognized as compensation expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

     Compensation expense for all share-based payment awards is recognized using the multiple-option approach. As stock-based compensation expense recognized in the consolidated statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 is based on awards ultimately expected to vest, it has been reduced for estimated forfeitures. SFAS 123(R) requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

     The Company’s determination of fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables. These variables include, but are not limited to, the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. Expected volatilities are based on the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee terminations. The expected term of the options granted represents the period of time that options are expected to be outstanding, based on historical information. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with remaining terms similar to the expected term of the Company’s equity awards. The Company does not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future and therefore used an expected dividend yield of zero.

Results of Operations

     Orders and backlog

     We received new orders of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2009, compared to $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2009 and $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2008. These new orders are for periods ranging from one to three years. Receipt of new orders may fluctuate due to the lengthy sales cycles and our dependence on relatively few customers for large orders.

     Our one-year backlog was $10.9 million at June 30, 2009, compared with $9.9 million at December 31, 2008 and $10.5 million at June 30, 2008. Backlog is comprised of deferred revenues (orders which have been billed but for which revenue has not yet been recognized) plus orders which have been accepted but have not yet been billed and for which no revenue has been recognized. A portion of the orders which have been accepted but have not yet been billed provide customers with cancellation rights; customers may also renew contracts before their expiration or modify that portion of their orders which is cancelable. Therefore, our backlog at any particular date is not necessarily indicative of revenues to be recognized during any succeeding period.

     Revenues, cost of revenues and gross profit

      The table below sets forth the fluctuations in revenues, cost of revenues and gross profit data for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 (in thousands, except percentage data):

          Professional service 5%   4%   5%   3%  
               Total cost of revenues 19%   28%   20%   28%  
 
     Gross profit 82%   73%   81%   72%  

     The majority of our revenues are generated from time-based licenses, which are bundled to include maintenance services for the duration of their terms. We typically recognize the license and maintenance revenue ratably during the maintenance period. We believe the revised presentation is a better way to reflect our revenue stream. The professional service revenue is derived primarily from consulting and training services we provide to customers. Occasionally we sell a term-based or perpetual license to a customer for which we can carve out the fair value of any undelivered elements which results in upfront license revenue.

     Total revenues remained consistent for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008. Professional service revenue increased primarily due to an increase in consulting services provided to customers.

     Total cost of revenues decreased in the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008 primarily due to decreased post-sales support by our application engineering group as well as a software license that had reached the end of its useful life by December 31, 2008. Cost of professional service increased primarily due to an increase in time spent on services provided to customers.

     Product line:

     ETCreate™ consists of embedded test intellectual property and corresponding design automation software that provides embedded test solutions for different components of an application-specific integrated circuit or system-on-chip design. ETCreate revenues remained consistent for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008.

     Silicon Insight™ consists of hardware and software products for use with third party test platforms. Silicon Insight enables faster time-to-market and lower test costs through the support of interactive or test program controlled at-speed testing, datalogging, and debug of silicon designed with LogicVision’s embedded test IP. Silicon Insight revenues decreased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to fewer orders received from customers.

     Others includes revenues from consulting and training activities. Consulting revenue decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008 due to a decrease in consulting services provided to customers. Consulting revenue increased for the six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008 due to an increase in on-site consulting services to customers.

     Geographic region:

     Revenue in the United States remained consistent for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008. Revenue in Japan decreased in the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008 primarily due to decreased orders in the past six months.

     Research and development expenses increased in the three months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to a Canadian research and development credit received during the three months ended June 30, 2008 that we have not received in the current quarter of 2009. The expenses decreased in the six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to lower compensation and facility expenses resulting from our cost reduction efforts.

     Sales and marketing expenses decreased in the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to lower compensation expenses resulting from a reduction in headcount and lower commission expenses resulting from lower bookings.

     General and administrative expenses decreased in the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to lower compensation and facility expenses resulting from our cost reduction efforts.

     Cost related to Mentor Graphics acquisition comprised primarily of the legal, accounting and advisory expenses related to the merger agreement entered into with Mentor Graphics Corporation publicly announced in May 2009.

     Other Items:

     The table below sets forth other data for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 (in thousands, except percentage data):

Three Months Ended Six Months Ended

Percentage of total revenues:              
 
     Interest and other income, net - 2%      - 1%  
 
     Income tax provision (benefit) - -  - -

     Interest and other income, net decreased in the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same period in fiscal 2008, primarily due to lower interest rates earned on our investments and cash and cash equivalents as a result of lower market interest rates.

     Income tax provision Our net operating losses are generated domestically, and amounts attributed to our foreign operations have been insignificant for all periods presented. Our income tax provisions are primarily related to state and foreign taxes. No benefit for income taxes has been recorded due to the uncertainty of the realization of deferred tax assets. From inception through December 31, 2008, we incurred net losses for federal and state tax purposes. As of December 31, 2008, we had federal and California net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $93.1 million and $33.8 million available to reduce future federal and California taxable income, respectively. These federal and California carryforwards will begin to expire in 2009 if not utilized. The extent to which these carryforwards can be used to offset future taxable income may be limited under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code and applicable state tax law.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

     At June 30, 2009, we had cash and cash equivalents of $6.4 million and negative working capital of $815,000.

     Net cash used in operating activities was $3.0 million and $1.8 million in the first six months of 2009 and 2008, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was primarily due to a net loss of $0.4 million, decreases in deferred revenue of $1.8 million, accrued liabilities of $0.5 million, increases in accounts receivable of $0.8 million and prepaid expenses and other current assets of $0.3 million; partially offset by non-cash charges from stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization of $0.4 million, and an increase of accounts payable of $0.4 million. Net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was primarily due to a net loss of $2.3 million, and a decrease in accrued liabilities of $0.4 million; partially offset by non-cash charges from stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization of $0.5 million, a decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets of $0.3 million, and an increase in deferred revenue of $0.1 million.

     Net cash provided by investing activities was $149,000 in the first six months of 2009, and net cash used in investing activates was $32,000 in the first six months of 2008. Net cash provided by investing activities in the first six months of 2009 was primarily due to proceeds from maturities of marketable securities of $150,000. Net cash used in investing activities in the first six months of 2008 was primarily due to the purchase of marketable securities of $1.4 million and fixed assets of $150,000, partially offset by the proceeds from maturities of marketable securities of $1.5 million.

18


     Net cash used in financing activities was $8,000 and $175,000 in the first six months of 2009 and 2008, respectively. Net cash used in finance activities in the first six months of 2009 was primarily due to the payments made on our capital lease, partially offset by the proceeds from the issuance of common stock pursuant to the employee stock purchase plan. Net cash used in financing activities in the first six months of 2008 was primarily due to the repurchase of common stock of $175,000, and payments made on our capital lease of $19,000, partially offset by proceeds of $19,000 received from the issuance of common stock pursuant to the employee stock purchase plan.

     As of June 30, 2009, we had a loan agreement with a bank under which we may borrow, on a revolving basis, up to $2.0 million. The interest rate applicable to any outstanding amounts is determined by reference to LIBOR plus a stated margin, and is subject to daily adjustment. In connection with entering into the agreement, we granted the bank a security interest in all of our existing and after-acquired property, including, but not limited to, intellectual property, inventory and equipment. Under the agreement, we must comply with certain operating and reporting covenants as a condition to receiving credit extensions. If we fail to perform any of our obligations, violate any of our covenants, suffer a material adverse change in our business or financial condition or become insolvent under the agreement, the bank can declare any outstanding amounts immediately due and payable and cease advancing us money or extending us credit. The agreement expires on February 24, 2010. We are currently in compliance with all the operating and reporting covenants under the agreement and there are currently no borrowings outstanding.

     We intend to continue to invest in the development of new products and enhancements to our existing products. Our future liquidity and capital requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including the costs and timing of product development efforts and the success of these development efforts, the costs and timing of sales and marketing activities, the extent to which our existing and new products gain market acceptance, competing technological and market developments, the costs involved in maintaining and enforcing patent claims and other intellectual property rights, the level and timing of license and service revenues, available borrowings under line of credit arrangements and other factors. In addition, we may utilize cash resources to fund acquisitions of, or investments in, complementary businesses, technologies or product lines. From time to time, we may be required to raise additional funds through public or private financing, strategic relationships or other arrangements. There can be no assurance that such funding, if needed, will be available on terms attractive to us, or at all. Furthermore, any additional equity financing may be dilutive to stockholders, and debt financing, if available, may involve restrictive covenants. Strategic arrangements, if necessary to raise additional funds, may require us to relinquish our rights to certain of our technologies or products. Our failure to raise capital when needed could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.

     We expect to finance our future commitments using existing cash resources. We currently anticipate that our available cash resources would be sufficient to meet our anticipated operating and capital requirements for at least the remainder of fiscal 2009.

ITEM 3: QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Foreign Currency Fluctuations

     In the normal course of business, we are exposed to market risk from the effect of foreign exchange rate fluctuations on the U.S. dollar value from our foreign operations. A significant portion of our revenues has been denominated in U.S. dollars. The operating expenses incurred by our foreign subsidiaries are denominated in local currencies. Accordingly, we are subject to exposure from movements in foreign currency exchange rates. To date, the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on our financial position and operating results has not been material. We currently do not use financial instruments to hedge foreign currency risks. We intend to assess the use of financial instruments to hedge currency exposures on an ongoing basis.

ITEM 4T: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

     (a) Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures. We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Our disclosure controls and procedures have been designed to meet reasonable assurance standards. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

     Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

     (b) Changes in internal controls. There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) identified in connection with the evaluation described in Item 4T(a) above that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1A: RISK FACTORS

     You should carefully consider the following risk factors and the other information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q before investing in our common stock. Our business and results of operations could be seriously impaired by any of the following risks. The trading price of our common stock could decline due to any of these risks and investors could lose part or all of their investment. In addition, if our proposed merger, hereinafter referred to as the merger, with Mentor Graphics is completed, the combined company will face additional risks. For information about these risks, refer to the Form S-4 registration statement and amendments thereto, filed with the SEC by Mentor Graphics (SEC File No. 333-159631) (the “Form S-4”), including the disclosures under the heading “Risk Factors.” Listed below are risk factors specific to LogicVision.

Risks Related to the Merger

LogicVision stockholders will receive a fixed number of shares of Mentor Graphics common stock despite changes in the market value of Mentor Graphics common stock or LogicVision common stock.

     Upon completion of the merger, each share of LogicVision common stock will be converted into 0.2006 shares of Mentor Graphics common stock. The market price of both Mentor Graphics and LogicVision common stock will fluctuate after the date of the proxy statement/prospectus. Fluctuations in the market price of Mentor Graphics and LogicVision common stock may be the result of general market and economic conditions, changes in the business, operations or prospects of Mentor Graphics or LogicVision, market assessments of the likelihood that the merger will be completed and the timing of closing of the merger and other factors independent of the merger. There will be no adjustment to the consideration payable to LogicVision stockholders in connection with the merger for changes in the market price of Mentor Graphics common stock or LogicVision common stock. In addition, neither Mentor Graphics nor LogicVision may terminate the merger agreement solely because of changes in the market price of the other company’s common stock. Accordingly, the dollar value of Mentor Graphics common stock that LogicVision stockholders will receive in the merger may be different from the dollar value of Mentor Graphics common stock on the date that LogicVision stockholders adopt the merger agreement and approve the merger. The historical share prices of both LogicVision common stock and Mentor Graphics common stock have experienced significant volatility. Mentor Graphics cannot predict or give any assurances as to the market price of Mentor Graphics common stock at any time before or after the completion of the merger.

If Mentor Graphics is not successful in integrating LogicVision into its own business, then the benefits of the merger will not be fully realized.

     Mentor Graphics may not achieve successful integration of the LogicVision assets in a timely manner, or at all, and Mentor Graphics may not realize the benefits and synergies of the merger to the extent, or in the timeframe, anticipated. The challenges to the successful integration of LogicVision into Mentor Graphics include:

  • developing new products and services that optimize the assets and resources of both companies;
     
  • integrating the strategies and operations of the two companies;
     
  • retaining and assimilating the key personnel of LogicVision; and
     
  • retaining and maintaining relationships with existing customers, distributors and other partners of LogicVision.

     Meeting these challenges will involve considerable risks, such as:

  • the potential disruption of each company’s ongoing business and distraction of their respective management teams;
     
  • the difficulty of fully leveraging acquired technology and intellectual property rights into Mentor Graphics’ products and services;
     
  • unanticipated expenses related to integration, including technical and operational integration; and
     
  • the impairment of relationships with employees, customers and channel partners as a result of the integration process or the merger.

22


     A failure by Mentor Graphics to successfully integrate the operation of LogicVision or otherwise to realize any of the anticipated benefits of the merger could cause an interruption of, or a loss of momentum in, the activities of the combined company and could adversely affect Mentor Graphics’ financial position and results of operations.

If the merger is not completed, Mentor Graphics’ and LogicVision’s stock prices and future businesses and operations could be harmed.

     Mentor Graphics’ and LogicVision’s obligations to complete the merger are subject to conditions, many of which are beyond the control of Mentor Graphics and LogicVision. If the merger is not completed for any reason, each company may be subject to a number of material risks, including the following:

  • LogicVision may be required under certain circumstances to pay Mentor Graphics a termination fee equal to $538,193 plus reimbursement of Mentor Graphics’ reasonable expenses up to $403,645;
     
  • the price of Mentor Graphics common stock and LogicVision common stock may decline;
     
  • Mentor Graphics and LogicVision may be subject to litigation related to any failure to complete the merger, which could require substantial time and resources to resolve;
     
  • costs related to the merger, such as financial advisory, legal, accounting and printing fees, must be paid even if the merger is not completed;
     
  • matters relating to the merger (including integration planning) require substantial commitments of time and resources by Mentor Graphics and LogicVision management, which could otherwise have been devoted to other opportunities that may have been beneficial to Mentor Graphics and LogicVision; and
     
  • if the merger is not completed, Mentor Graphics and LogicVision would fail to derive the benefits expected to result from the merger.

     In addition, if the merger is terminated, LogicVision may be unable to find a partner willing to engage in a similar transaction on terms as favorable as those set forth in the merger agreement, or at all.

Uncertainty regarding the merger may cause customers, suppliers and channel partners to delay or defer decisions concerning Mentor Graphics and LogicVision and adversely affect LogicVision’s ability to attract and retain key employees.

     The merger will occur only if stated conditions are met, including, among others, the adoption of the merger agreement and approval of the merger by LogicVision’s stockholders. Many of the conditions are outside the control of Mentor Graphics and LogicVision, and both parties also have rights to terminate the merger agreement under specified circumstances. Accordingly, there may be uncertainty regarding the completion of the merger. This uncertainty may cause customers, suppliers and channel partners to delay or defer decisions concerning certain Mentor Graphics or LogicVision products, which could negatively affect their respective businesses. Customers, suppliers and channel partners may also seek to change existing agreements with Mentor Graphics or LogicVision as a result of the merger. Any delay or deferral of those decisions or changes in existing agreements could materially impact the respective businesses of Mentor Graphics and/or LogicVision, regardless of whether the merger is ultimately completed. Moreover, diversion of management focus and resources from the day-to-day operation of the business to matters relating to the merger could materially impact each company’s business, regardless of whether the merger is completed. Current and prospective employees of LogicVision may experience uncertainty about their future roles with the combined company. This may adversely affect LogicVision’s ability to attract and retain applicable key management, sales, marketing, operations and technical personnel.

23


LogicVision officers and directors have conflicts of interest that may influence them to support or approve the merger.

     The directors and officers of LogicVision have interests in the merger that are different from, or in addition to, those of LogicVision stockholders. The directors and officers of LogicVision could be more likely to recommend and approve the merger agreement than if they did not hold these interests. LogicVision stockholders should consider whether these interests might have influenced these directors and officers to support or recommend the merger. The members of the LogicVision’s board of directors were aware of and considered these interests, among other matters, in evaluating and negotiating the merger agreement and the merger, and in recommending to LogicVision’s stockholders that the merger agreement be adopted. See the section titled “Proposal One—The Merger—Interests of Certain Persons in the Merger” in the Form S-4.

The termination fee and restrictions on solicitation contained in the merger agreement may discourage other companies from trying to acquire LogicVision.

     Until the completion of the merger, with limited exceptions, the merger agreement prohibits LogicVision from entering into an alternative acquisition transaction with, or soliciting any alternative acquisition proposal from, another party. LogicVision has agreed under certain circumstances to pay Mentor Graphics a termination fee equal to $538,193 plus reimbursement of Mentor Graphics’ reasonable expenses up to $403,645, including where LogicVision’s board of directors withdraws its support of the merger to enter into a business combination with a third party. These provisions could discourage other companies from trying to acquire LogicVision even though those other companies might be willing to offer greater value to LogicVision stockholders than Mentor Graphics has offered in the merger.

LogicVision stockholders, as a group, will have reduced ownership and voting interests after the merger. In addition, the rights of holders of LogicVision common stock will change as a result of the merger.

     After the merger, former LogicVision stockholders will hold approximately 2% of the outstanding shares of Mentor Graphics common stock. Consequently, as a general matter, LogicVision stockholders, as a group, will have reduced ownership and voting interests in Mentor Graphics following the merger than they had in LogicVision prior to the merger and, as a result, they will have less influence over the management and policies of Mentor Graphics than they currently exercise over the management and policies of LogicVision.

     In addition, after the merger, the rights of those stockholders of LogicVision who will become stockholders of Mentor Graphics will be governed by Mentor Graphics’ amended and restated articles of incorporation and by-laws, which are different from LogicVision’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation and by-laws. For more information, see the section titled “Comparison of Rights of Holders of Mentor Graphics Common Stock and LogicVision Common Stock” in the Form S-4.

Mentor Graphics will incur additional integration expenses in connection with the merger.

     In the event the merger is completed, Mentor Graphics expects to incur additional expenses in connection with the integration of LogicVision, including integrating personnel, information technology systems, accounting systems, vendors and strategic partners of each company and implementing consistent standards, policies, and procedures.

Risks Related to LogicVision

If the semiconductor industry does not adopt embedded test technology on a widespread basis, our revenues could decline and our stock price could fall.

     To date, the semiconductor industry has not adopted embedded test technology as an alternative to current testing methods on a widespread basis. If the semiconductor industry does not adopt embedded test technology widely and in the near future, our growth will be limited, our revenues could decline, and our stock price could fall. We cannot provide assurance that integrated circuit designers and design companies’ customers will accept embedded test technology as an alternative to current testing methods in the time frame we anticipate, or at all. The industry may fail to adopt embedded test technology for many reasons, including the following:

  • our current and potential customers may not accept or embrace our Dragonfly Test PlatformTM integrated family of products;
     
  • potential customers may determine that existing solutions adequately address their testing needs, or the industry may develop alternative technologies to address their testing needs;
     
  • potential customers may not be willing to accept the perceived delays in the early design stages associated with implementing embedded test technology in order to achieve potential time and cost savings at later stages of silicon debugging and production testing;
     
  • potential customers may have concerns over the reliability of embedded testing methods relative to existing test methods;
     
  • our existing and potential customers may react to declines in demand for semiconductors by curtailing or delaying new initiatives for new complex semiconductors or by extending the approval process for new projects, thereby lengthening our sales cycles; and
     
  • designers may be reluctant to take on the added responsibility of incorporating embedded test technology as part of their design process, or to learn how to implement embedded test technology.

The current economic downturn and uncertainty in the global economy and effects on the industries into which we sell our products impacted our customers’ research and development budgets, and harmed our business and operating results.

     The worldwide economy is currently undergoing significant turmoil, which together with uncertainty about future economic conditions, has negatively impacted our customers, and can cause our customers to postpone their decision making and decrease their spending. Our sales are dependent upon capital spending trends and new design projects, and a substantial portion of our costs are fixed in the near term. The demand from our customers is uncertain and difficult to predict. Slower growth in the semiconductor and systems markets such as postponed or canceled capital expenditures for previously planned expansions or new fabrication facility construction projects, a reduced number of design starts, reduction of design and test budgets or continued consolidation among our customers would harm our business and financial condition.

     The primary customers for semiconductors that incorporate our embedded test technology are companies in the automotive, consumer, communications, medical products, networking and server products industries. The current economic downturn and a downturn in these particular markets or in general economic conditions could result in the cutback of research and development budgets or capital expenditures, which would likely result in a reduction in demand for our products and services and could harm our business. If the economy continues to experience economic, political or social turmoil, existing and prospective customers may further reduce their design budgets or delay implementation of our products, which could harm our business and operating results.

We are subject to the cyclical nature of the semiconductor and electronics industries, and any downturn in these industries could harm our business, operating results, and financial condition.

     In addition to the effects of macroeconomic factors, the markets for semiconductor products are cyclical. In recent years, most countries have experienced significant economic difficulties. These difficulties triggered a significant downturn in the semiconductor market, resulting in reduced budgets for chip design tools. In addition, the electronics industry has historically been subject to seasonal and cyclical fluctuations in demand for its products, and this trend may continue in the future. These industry downturns have been, and may continue to be, characterized by diminished product demand, excess manufacturing capacity and subsequent erosion of average selling prices. As a result, our future operating results may reflect substantial fluctuations from period to period as a consequence of these industry patterns, general economic conditions affecting the timing of orders from customers and other factors. Any negative factors affecting the semiconductor industry, including the downturns described here, could significantly harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

25


We have a history of losses and an accumulated deficit of approximately $103.7 million as of June 30, 2009. If we do not generate sufficient net revenue in the future to achieve or sustain profitability, our stock price could decline.

     We have incurred significant net losses since our inception, including losses of $3.5 million, $3.7 million and $7.1 million for the years ended December 31, 2008, 2007 and 2006, respectively. At June 30, 2009, we had an accumulated deficit of approximately $103.7 million. We expect our future revenues to be impacted by our long sales cycle and our revenue recognition policies, and we expect to continue to invest in our research and development projects as well as service operations required to support our business development activities. These product and business development expenditures as well as other operating expenses could continue to exceed our revenues, thus preventing us from achieving and maintaining profitability. To achieve and maintain profitability, we will need to generate and sustain substantially higher revenues while maintaining reasonable cost and expense levels. If we fail to achieve profitability within the time frame expected by securities analysts or investors and our cash balances continue to decline, the market price of our common stock will likely decline. We may not achieve profitability if our revenues do not increase or if they increase more slowly than we expect. In addition, our operating expenses are largely fixed, and any shortfall in anticipated revenues in any given period could harm our operating results.

The sales and implementation cycles for our products are typically long and unpredictable, taking from three months to one year or longer for sales and an additional one to six months for implementation. As a result, we may have difficulty predicting future revenues and our revenues and operating results may fluctuate significantly, which could cause our stock price to fluctuate.

     Our sales cycle has ranged from three months to one year or longer and our customers’ implementation cycle has been approximately an additional one to six months. We believe that convincing a potential customer to integrate our technology into an integrated circuit at the design stage, which we refer to as a design win, is critical to retaining existing customers and to obtaining new customers. However, acceptance of our embedded test technology generally involves a significant commitment of resources by prospective customers and a fundamental change in their method of designing and testing integrated circuits. Many of our potential customers are large enterprises that generally do not adopt new design methodologies quickly. Also, we may have limited access to the key decision-makers of potential customers who can authorize the adoption of our technology. As a result, the period between our initial contact with a potential customer and the sale of our products to that customer, if any, is often lengthy and may include delays associated with our customers’ budgeting and approval processes, as well as a substantial investment of our time and resources. We have incurred high customer engagement and support costs, including sales commissions, and the failure to manage these costs could harm our operating results.

     If we fail to achieve a design win with a potential customer early in a given product cycle, it is unlikely that the potential customer will become a customer before its next product cycle, if at all. Because of the length of our sales cycle, our failure to achieve design wins could have a material and prolonged adverse effect on our sales and revenue growth. Our revenue streams may fluctuate significantly due to the length of our sales cycle, which may make our future revenues difficult to project and may cause our stock price to fluctuate.

If a customer cancels its order or defaults on payment or if we renegotiate an existing order, we may be unable to recognize revenue from backlog, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

     A significant portion of the orders in our backlog provides customers with cancellation rights or is recognized as revenue when payment is due. In addition, some orders extend over periods ranging up to thirty-six months. If a customer cancels its order or delays its contractual payments we may not be able to realize revenue from backlog in the time frame expected or at all. Also, it is possible that customers from whom we expect to derive revenue from backlog will default, and as a result we may not be able to recognize expected revenue from backlog. If a customer defaults or fails to pay amounts owed, or if the level of defaults increases, our bad debt expense is likely to increase. Additionally, our customers may seek to renegotiate pre-existing contractual commitments. If the current economic downturn is prolonged, our customers’ financial condition and, in turn, their ability or willingness to fulfill their contractual obligations to us could be adversely affected. Any material payment default by our customers would harm our financial condition and results of operations.

26


Fluctuations in our revenues and operating results could cause the market price of our common stock to decline.

     Our revenues and operating results have fluctuated from quarter to quarter in the past and may do so in the future, which could cause the market price of our common stock to decline. Accordingly, quarter-to-quarter comparisons of our results of operations may not be an indication of our future performance. In future periods, our revenues and results of operations may be below the estimates of public market analysts and investors. This discrepancy could cause the market price of our common stock to decline.

     Fluctuations in our revenues and operating results may be caused by:

  • timing, terms and conditions of customer agreements;
     
  • customers placing orders at the end of the quarter;
     
  • the mix of our license and service revenues;
     
  • timing of customer usage of our technology in their product designs and the recognition of revenues therefrom when amounts are due based on design usage;
     
  • timing of sales commission expenses and the recognition of license revenues from related customer agreements;
     
  • changes in our and our customers’ development schedules and levels of expenditures on research and development;
     
  • industry patterns and changes or cyclical and seasonal fluctuations in the markets we target;
     
  • timing and acceptance of new technologies, product releases or enhancements by us, our competitors or our customers;
     
  • timing and completion of milestones under customer agreements; and
     
  • market and general economic conditions.

     Delays or deferrals in purchasing decisions by our customers may increase as we develop new or enhanced products. Our current dependence on a small number of customers increases the revenue impact of each customer’s actions relative to these factors. Our expense levels are based, in large part, on our expectations regarding future revenues, and as a result net income (loss) for any quarterly period in which material customer agreements are delayed could vary significantly from our budget projections.

The accounting rules regarding revenue recognition may cause fluctuations in our revenues independent of our order position.

     The accounting rules we are required to follow require us to recognize revenues only when certain criteria are met. As a result, for a given quarter it is possible for us to fall short in our revenues and/or earnings estimates even though total orders are according to our plan or, conversely, to meet our revenues and/or earnings estimates even though total orders fall short of our plan, due to revenues resulting from the recognition of previously deferred revenues. Orders for software support and consulting services yield revenues over multiple quarters, rather than at the time of sale. The specific terms agreed to with a customer and/or any changes to the rules interpreting such terms may have the effect of requiring deferral of product revenues in whole or in part or, alternatively, of requiring us to accelerate the recognition of such revenues for products to be used over multiple years.

27


Intense competition in the semiconductor and systems industries, particularly in the design and test of semiconductors, could prevent us from increasing or sustaining our revenues and prevent us from achieving or sustaining profitability.

     The semiconductor and systems industries are extremely competitive and characterized by rapidly changing technology. The market for embedded test solutions is still evolving, and we expect competition to become more intense in the future. Our current principal competitors in the design phase of product development include:

  • electronic design automation providers such as Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Magma Design Automation Inc., Mentor Graphics Corporation and Synopsys, Inc., all of which offer basic built-in self-test capability;
     
  • smaller test tool providers;
     
  • potential customers that develop test solutions internally; and
     
  • integrated device manufacturers, such as International Business Machines Corporation, that use their own test solutions in chips manufactured for and sold to others.

     Our embedded test technology also has the potential to impact the automated test equipment market, which may place us in competition with traditional hardware tester manufacturers such as Advantest Corporation, LTX-Credence Corporation, Teradyne, Inc. and Verigy Ltd. As embedded test becomes adopted more widely in the market, any of these automated test equipment companies, or others, may offer their own embedded test solutions. Most of our competitors in electronic design automation and external test equipment businesses are significantly larger than we are and have greater financial resources, greater name recognition and longer operating histories than we have. Some of our competitors offer a more comprehensive range of products covering the entire design flow and complete external test flow, and they may be able to respond more quickly or adjust prices more effectively to take advantage of new opportunities or customer requirements. In addition, all of the tester manufacturers listed above participate in our LVReady partner program through which our embedded test access software is integrated into their test platform, which may provide them with additional insight into our business and technology. Increased competition in the semiconductor industry could result in pricing pressures, reduced sales, reduced margins or failure to achieve or maintain widespread market acceptance, any of which could prevent us from increasing or sustaining our revenues and achieving or sustaining profitability.

Our target markets are comprised of a limited number of customers. If we fail to obtain or retain customer relationships, our revenues could decline.

     We derive a significant portion of our revenues from a relatively small number of customers. Three customers accounted for approximately 26%, 16% and 15%, respectively, of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2009. Three customers accounted for approximately 18%, 16% and 16%, respectively, of total revenues in the year ended December 31, 2008; these customers accounted for approximately 21%, 19% and 11%, respectively, of total revenues in the year ended December 31, 2007, and 26%, 18% and 8%, respectively, of total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2006. We anticipate that we will continue to rely on a limited number of customers for a substantial portion of our future revenues and we must obtain additional large orders from customers on an ongoing basis to increase our revenues and grow our business. In addition, the loss of any significant or well-known customer could harm our operating results or our reputation. In particular, a loss of a significant customer could cause fluctuations in our results of operations because our expenses are fixed in the short term, it takes us a long time to replace customers and, because of required methods of revenue recognition, any offsetting license revenues may need to be recognized over a period of time.

We have relied and expect to continue to rely on our ETCreate products for a significant portion of our revenues.

     Revenues from sales of our ETCreate products and related maintenance and training services accounted for 76% of our total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2009, and 79%, 87% and 79% of our total revenues for the years ended December 31, 2008, 2007 and 2006, respectively. We currently expect that revenues from our ETCreate products will continue to account for a substantial percentage of our revenues in the foreseeable future and thereafter. Our future operating results are significantly dependent upon the continued market acceptance of our products. Our business will be harmed if our products do not continue to achieve market acceptance or if we fail to develop and market improvements to our products or enhancements thereof. A decline in demand for our ETCreate products as a result of competition, technological change or other factors could harm our business.

28


Our products incorporate technology licensed from third parties. If any of these licenses are terminated, our ability to develop and license our products could be delayed or reduced.

     We use technology, including software, which we license from third parties. If we do not maintain our existing third party technology licenses or enter into licenses for alternative technologies, we could be required to cease or delay product shipments while we seek to develop alternative technologies.

We depend on third parties to provide electronic design automation software that is compatible with our solution. If these third parties do not continue to provide compatible design products, we would need to develop alternatives, which could delay product introductions and cause our revenues and operating results to decline.

     Our customers depend on electronic design automation software to design their products using our solution. We depend on the same software to develop our products. Although we have established relationships with a variety of electronic design automation vendors to gain access to this software and to assure compatibility, these relationships may be terminated with limited notice. If any of these relationships were terminated and we were unable to obtain alternative software in a timely manner, our customers could be unable to use our solution. In addition, we could experience a significant increase in development costs, our development process could take longer, product introductions could be delayed and our revenues and operating results could decline.

If automated test equipment companies are unwilling to work with us to make our technology compatible with theirs, we may need to pursue alternatives, which could increase the time it takes us to bring our solution to market and decrease customer acceptance of our technology.

     Although we are presently working with a number of automated test equipment companies to achieve optimal compatibility of our technologies, these companies may elect not to work with us in the future. If automated test equipment companies are unwilling to incorporate modifications into their equipment and operating systems to allow them to work with our technology, we may need to seek alternatives. These alternatives might not provide optimal levels of test function, and pursuing these alternatives could increase the time and expense it takes us to bring our technology to market, either of which could decrease customer acceptance of our technology and cause our revenues and margins to decline.

Our future success will depend on our ability to keep pace with rapid technological advancements in the semiconductor industry. If we fail to develop and introduce new products and enhancements on a timely basis, our ability to attract and retain customers could be impaired, which would cause our operating results to decline.

     The semiconductor industry is characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards, rapid changes in customer requirements, frequent product introductions and ongoing demands for greater speed and functionality. We must continually design, develop and introduce new products with improved features to be competitive. Our products may not achieve market acceptance or adequately address the changing needs of the marketplace, and we may not be successful in developing and marketing new products or enhancements to our existing products on a timely basis. The introduction of products embodying new technologies, the emergence of new industry standards or changes in customer requirements could render our existing products obsolete and unmarketable. We may not have the financial resources necessary to fund future innovations. If we are unable, for technical, legal, financial or other reasons, to respond in a timely manner to changing market conditions or customer requirements, our business and operating results could be seriously harmed.

Future changes in financial accounting standards, including pronouncements and interpretations of accounting pronouncements on software revenue recognition and stock-based compensation, may cause adverse unexpected revenue and expense fluctuations and affect our reported results of operations.

     A change in accounting policies can have a significant effect on our reported results and may even affect our reporting of transactions completed before a change is announced. In particular, new pronouncements and varying interpretations of pronouncements on software revenue recognition and stock-based compensation have occurred with frequency, may occur in the future and could impact our revenues, expenses and results of operations. Required changes in our methods of revenue recognition could result in deferral of revenues recognized in current periods to subsequent periods or accelerated recognition of deferred revenues to current periods, each of which could cause shortfalls in meeting the expectations of investors and securities analysts. Our stock price could decline as a result of any shortfall.

29


     For example, the adoption of SFAS 123(R), “Share-Based Payment”, which requires compensation costs relating to share-based payment transactions to be recognized in financial statements beginning in January 2006, had a negative impact on our results of operations and loss per share.

     Accounting policies affecting many other aspects of our business, including rules relating to revenue recognition and purchase accounting for business combinations have recently been revised or are under review. Changes to those rules or the questioning of current practices may adversely affect our reported financial results or the way we conduct our business.

We are exposed to risks from legislation requiring companies to evaluate their internal control over financial reporting.

     Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires our management to report on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. Our independent registered public accounting firm will be required to attest to the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting beginning as early as fiscal 2009. We have an ongoing program to perform the system and process evaluation and testing necessary to comply with these requirements. We expect to incur increased expense and to devote additional management resources to Section 404 compliance. In the event our chief executive officer, chief financial officer or independent registered public accounting firm determine that our internal control over financial reporting is not effective as defined under Section 404, investor perceptions of our company may be adversely affected and could cause a decline in the market price of our stock.

Compliance with changing regulation of corporate governance and public disclosure may result in additional costs.

     Changes in the laws and regulations affecting public companies, including the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and recent SEC and Nasdaq rules and regulations, are creating new duties and requirements for us and our executives, directors, attorneys and our independent registered public accounting firm. In order to comply with these rules, we will have to incur additional costs for personnel and use additional outside legal, accounting and advisory services, which will increase our operating expenses. Management time associated with these compliance efforts necessarily reduces time available for other operating activities, which could adversely affect operating results. To date, our costs to comply with these rules have not been significant; however, we cannot predict or estimate the amount of future additional costs we may incur or the timing of such costs.

Our products may have errors or defects that users identify after deployment, which could harm our reputation and our business.

     Our products may contain undetected errors when first introduced or when new versions or enhancements are released. We have from time to time found errors in versions of our products, and we may find errors in our products in the future. The occurrence of errors could cause sales of our products to decline, divert the attention of management and engineering personnel from our product development efforts and cause significant customer relations problems. Customer relations problems could damage our reputation, hinder market acceptance of our products and result in loss of future revenues.

We must continually attract and retain engineering personnel, or we will be unable to execute our business strategy.

     Our strategy for encouraging the adoption of our technology requires that we employ highly skilled engineers to develop our products and work with our customers. In the past, we have experienced difficulty in hiring and retaining highly skilled engineers with appropriate qualifications to support our business. As a result, our future success depends in part on our ability to identify, attract, retain and motivate qualified engineering personnel.

30


Competition for qualified engineers is intense, especially in the Silicon Valley where our headquarters are located. If we lose the services of a significant number of our engineers and we cannot hire and integrate additional engineers, it could disrupt our ability to develop our products and implement our business strategy.

We may be unable to replace the technical, sales, marketing and managerial contributions of key individuals.

     We depend on our senior executives, our research and development personnel and our sales and marketing personnel, all of whom are critical to our business. We do not have long-term employment agreements with our key employees nor do we maintain a key person life insurance policy on any of our key employees. If we lose the services of any of these key executives, our product development processes and sales efforts could be slowed. We may also incur increased operating expenses and be required to divert the attention of other senior executives to search for their replacements. The integration of any executives or new personnel could disrupt our ongoing operations.

If we fail to protect our intellectual property rights, competitors may be able to use our technologies, which could weaken our competitive position, reduce our revenues or increase our costs.

     Our success and ability to compete depend largely upon the protection of our proprietary technology. We rely on a combination of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret laws, confidentiality procedures and licensing arrangements to establish and protect our proprietary rights. Our pending patent applications may not result in issued patents, and our existing and future patents may not be sufficiently broad to protect our proprietary technologies. Policing unauthorized use of our products is difficult and we cannot be certain that the steps we have taken will prevent the misappropriation or unauthorized use of our technologies, particularly in foreign countries where the laws may not protect our proprietary rights as fully as U.S. laws. Any patents we obtain or license may not be adequate to protect our proprietary rights. Our competitors may independently develop similar technology, duplicate our products or design around any patents issued to us or our other intellectual property rights.

     Litigation may be necessary to enforce our intellectual property rights or to determine the validity or scope of the proprietary rights of others. As a result of any such litigation, we could lose our proprietary rights and incur substantial unexpected operating costs. We may need to take legal action to enforce our proprietary rights in the future. Any action we take to protect our intellectual property rights could be costly and could absorb significant management time and attention. In addition, failure to adequately protect our trademark rights could impair our brand identity and our ability to compete effectively.

Any dispute involving our patents or other intellectual property could include our industry partners and customers, which could trigger our indemnification obligations to them and result in substantial expense to us.

     In any dispute involving our patents or other intellectual property, our licensees could also become the target of litigation. This could trigger technical support and indemnification obligations in some of our license agreements which could result in substantial expenses. In addition to the time and expense required for us to support or indemnify our licensees, any such litigation could severely disrupt or shut down the business of our licensees, which in turn could hurt our relations with our customers and cause our revenues to decrease.

Failure to obtain export licenses could harm our business.

     We must comply with U.S. Department of Commerce regulations in shipping our software and hardware products and other technologies outside the United States. Although we have not had any significant difficulty complying with these regulations to date, any significant future difficulty in complying could harm our business, operating results and financial condition.

We have limited control over third-party representatives who market, sell and support our products in foreign markets. Loss of these relationships could decrease our revenues and harm our business.

     We offer our products and services for sale through distributors and sales representatives in China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, the UK and Sweden. We anticipate that sales in these markets will account for a portion of our total revenues in future periods. In 2005, we appointed a sales representative in Israel and distributors in France and the UK. In 2006, we appointed a sales representative in India. In 2007, we appointed a new distributor in Japan, augmenting our direct sales organization. In 2008, we appointed a new distributor in China, and two new sales representatives in Europe. Our third-party representatives are not obligated to continue selling our products, and they may terminate their arrangements with limited prior notice. Growing our relationship with these new distributors and sales representatives, or establishing alternative distribution channels in these markets could consume substantial management time and resources, decrease our revenues and increase our expenses.

31


We face business, political and economic risks because a portion of our revenues and operations are outside of the United States.

     International revenues accounted for 28% of our total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2009, and 30%, 25% and 16% of our total revenues for the years ended December 31, 2008, 2007 and 2006, respectively. In addition to our international sales, we have operations in Canada, Japan and the UK. Our success depends upon continued expansion of our international operations, and we expect that international revenues will continue to be an important component of our total future revenues. Our international business involves a number of risks, including:

  • our ability to adapt our products to foreign design methods and practices;
     
  • the uncertainty of international orders due to typically lengthy international selling cycles;
     
  • cultural differences in the conduct of business;
     
  • difficulty in attracting qualified personnel;
     
  • managing foreign branch offices and subsidiaries;
     
  • longer payment cycles for and greater difficulty collecting accounts receivable;
     
  • unexpected changes in regulatory requirements, royalties and withholding taxes that restrict the repatriation of earnings;
     
  • tariffs and other trade barriers;
     
  • the burden of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws; and
     
  • political, economic, health or military conditions associated with worldwide conflicts and events.

     As a result of our direct selling activities in Japan, a portion of our international revenues is denominated in Japanese yen, which is subject to exposure from movements in foreign currency exchange rates. In addition, most of our remaining international revenues are denominated in U.S. dollars, creating a risk that fluctuation in currency exchange rates will make our prices uncompetitive. To the extent that profit is generated or losses are incurred in foreign countries, our effective income tax rate may be significantly affected. Any of these factors could significantly harm our future international sales and, consequently, our revenues and overall results of operations and business and financial condition.

We may be unable to consummate future potential acquisitions or investments or successfully integrate acquired businesses or investments or foreign operations with our business, which may disrupt our business, divert management’s attention and slow our ability to expand the range of our proprietary technologies and products.

     We may expand the range of our proprietary technologies and products, acquire or make investments in additional complementary businesses, technologies or products, if appropriate opportunities arise. For example, in 2004, we completed the acquisition of SiVerion, Inc. We may be unable to identify suitable acquisition or investment candidates at reasonable prices or on reasonable terms, or consummate future acquisitions or investments, each of which could slow our growth strategy. Our acquisition of SiVerion, Inc. and any future acquisitions may involve risks such as the following:

  • we may not achieve the anticipated benefits of the acquisitions;
     
  • our acquisition and integration costs may be higher than we anticipated and may cause our quarterly and annual operating results to fluctuate;
     
  • we may be unable to retain key employees, such as management, technical or sales personnel, of the acquired businesses;

32



  • we may experience difficulty and expense in assimilating the operations and personnel of the acquired businesses, which could be further affected by the acquired businesses not being located near our existing sites;
     
  • we may incur amortization or impairment expenses if an acquisition results in significant goodwill or other intangible assets;
     
  • we may be unable to complete the development and application of the acquired technology or products or integrate the technology or products with our own;
     
  • we may be exposed to unknown liabilities of acquired companies;
     
  • we may experience difficulties in establishing and maintaining uniform standards, controls, procedures and policies;
     
  • our relationships with key customers of acquired businesses may be impaired, due to changes in management and ownership of the acquired businesses; or
     
  • our stockholders may be diluted if we pay for the acquisition with equity securities.

     These factors could disrupt our ongoing business, distract our management and employees and increase our expenses or otherwise harm our operating results.

Intellectual property litigation, which is common in our industry, could be costly, harm our reputation, limit our ability to license or sell our proprietary technologies or products and divert the attention of management and technical personnel.

     The semiconductor industry is characterized by frequent litigation regarding patent and other intellectual property rights. While we have not received formal notice of any infringement of the rights of any third party, questions of infringement in the semiconductor field involve highly technical and subjective analyses. Litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce any patents we may receive and other intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets, to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others, or to defend against claims of infringement or invalidity, and we may not prevail in any future litigation. Any such litigation, whether or not determined in our favor or settled, could be costly, could harm our reputation and could divert the efforts and attention of our management and technical personnel from normal business operations. Adverse determinations in litigation could result in the loss of our proprietary rights, subject us to significant liabilities, require us to seek licenses from third parties or prevent us from licensing our technology or selling our products, any of which could harm our business.

Our stock price may decline significantly because of stock market fluctuations that affect the prices of technology stocks. A decline in our stock price could result in securities class action litigation against us that could divert management’s attention and harm our business.

     The stock market has experienced significant price and trading volume fluctuations that have adversely affected the market prices of common stock of technology companies. These broad market fluctuations may reduce the market price of our common stock. In the past, securities class action litigation has often been brought against a company after periods of volatility in the market price of securities. In the future, we may be a target of similar litigation. Securities litigation could result in substantial costs and divert our management’s attention and resources, which in turn could harm our ability to execute our business plan.

33


Our stock may fail to meet the requirements for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, in which case the price and liquidity of our common stock may decline. The reverse stock split of our common stock may reduce the liquidity of our common stock, and the market price of our common stock may decline.

     We are subject to the continued listing requirements of The Nasdaq Capital Market, which include a $1.00 minimum closing bid price requirement. When we transferred from The Nasdaq Global Market to The Nasdaq Capital Market, we were not in compliance with this minimum closing bid price requirement. Effective March 12, 2008, we implemented a 1-for-2.5 reverse stock split of our common stock. On March 31, 2008, we received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating that, because the closing bid price of our common stock had been at $1.00 per share or greater for at least 10 consecutive business days, we had regained compliance. We cannot assure you, however, that we will be able to continue to maintain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement. If we fail to maintain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement and are delisted, our financial condition could be harmed and our stock price would likely decline. The reverse stock split reduced the number of shares of our common stock outstanding, which could adversely affect the liquidity of our common stock, which could adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

Our ability to raise capital in the future may be limited and our failure to raise capital when needed could prevent us from growing.

     We believe that our existing cash resources and available debt financing will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs for at least the next 12 months. However, the timing and amount of our working capital and capital expenditure requirements may vary significantly depending on numerous factors, including:

  • the level and timing of license and service revenues;
     
  • the costs and timing of expansion of product development efforts and the success of these development efforts;
     
  • the extent to which our existing and new products gain market acceptance;
     
  • the costs and timing of expansion of sales and marketing activities;
     
  • competing technological and marketing developments;
     
  • the extent of international operations;
     
  • the need to adapt to changing technologies and technical requirements;
     
  • the costs involved in maintaining and enforcing patent claims and other intellectual property rights;
     
  • the existence of opportunities for expansion and for acquisitions of, investments in, complementary businesses, technologies or product lines; and
     
  • access to and availability of sufficient management, technical, marketing and financial personnel.

     If our capital resources are insufficient to satisfy our liquidity requirements, we may seek to sell additional equity securities or debt securities or obtain debt financing. The sale of additional equity securities or debt securities would result in additional dilution to our stockholders. Additional debt would result in increased expenses and could result in covenants that would restrict our operations. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, this would significantly limit our ability to hire, train or retain employees, support our expansion, take advantage of unanticipated opportunities such as acquisitions of businesses or technologies, develop or enhance products, or respond to competitive pressures.
