ANSYS to acquire Mentor Graphics?

According to CharlieD

Is this an active rumor or is ANSYS really acquiring Mentor Graphics?

Apache used to be a preferred vendor for us but after the ANSYS acquisition they seemed to have lost their zest for life. Honestly I have not heard much from them in the FinFET world. ANSYS has a 2x market cap over MENT? Do they have the cash to make an outright buy or would it be a stock deal?

According to Daniel Nenni

Let’s call it wishful thinking……. I do think it would be good for EDA as I mentioned previously:

The dark horse here of course is ANSYS if they acquire Mentor for example. That would certainly shake things up a bit. Not only would that take Mentor into a whole new level of exposure outside traditional EDA, it would get ANSYS securely inside the semiconductor ecosystem and give Synopsys and Cadence cause for concern, absolutely.
