Xilinx Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend Increase and Share Repurchase Authorization
The Board also approved an additional stock repurchase program whereby Xilinx is authorized to repurchase up to $800 million of its common stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing of repurchases and the number of shares of common stock to be repurchased is dependent upon prevailing market conditions, share price and other factors.
"Xilinx has consistently generated healthy free cash flow and our dividend yield is one of the highest in the semiconductor industry. The increased dividend and share repurchase program demonstrates our commitment to returning value to our stockholders," stated Moshe Gavrielov, chief executive officer.
