Xilinx Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2010 Results

Financial Tables

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 15, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) today announced first quarter fiscal 2010 sales of $376.2 million, down 5% sequentially and down 23% from the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. First quarter net income was $38.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, including previously announced pre-tax restructuring charges totaling $15.8 million, and the reversal of $8.7 million of interest income previously accrued on the tax prepayment as a result of the recent adverse court case ruling. Collectively, these items represented approximately $0.07 per diluted share after tax.

The Xilinx Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.14 per outstanding share of common stock, payable on August 26, 2009 to all stockholders of record at the close of business on August 5, 2009.

"Sales growth was impacted in the June quarter by supply constraints primarily relating to certain Virtex -5 devices in high demand," said Moshe Gavrielov, Xilinx President and Chief Executive Officer. "We reduced SG&A and R&D expenses by more than 5% sequentially and generated $128 million of operating cash flow. At the same time, we remain committed to our ongoing investment in next generation FPGA development, which we expect to drive future growth opportunities."

During the June quarter, sales from Asia Pacific increased 2% sequentially to represent a record 37% of total sales. This was up from 35% of sales in the prior quarter, and up from 32% of total sales in the same quarter a year ago. Sales from all other geographies declined sequentially during the quarter.
