We believe that returning capital to stockholders is an important part of stock ownership. It is also an indication that Xilinx is a successful company. It is the intention of the Board of Directors to pay a comparable quarterly dividend on a going forward basis subject to continued capital availability and a determination that cash dividends continue to be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.
Xilinx has been generating increasing amounts of free cash from operations as a result of its success in programmable logic. In declaring the first dividend in our history, Xilinx's Board of Directors has determined that the Company can return some of its cash to stockholders without impacting future revenue and earnings growth or restricting strategic opportunities.

In May of 2003, legislation was passed that reduces the maximum statutory tax rate on dividends from 38 percent to 15 percent, the largest decrease in the dividend tax rate in U.S. history. However, one should consult a tax advisor to determine his or her own tax liability.
