Xilinx Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2007 Results; $0.27 EPS

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (Nasdaq: XLNX) today announced net revenues of $467.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2007, down 3% sequentially from the prior quarter and up 17% from the same quarter a year ago. Second quarter net income of $93.0 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, increased 13% from the prior quarter, and included stock-based compensation of $21.9 million.

Xilinx also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.09 per outstanding share of common stock, payable on December 6, 2006 to all stockholders of record at the close of business on November 15, 2006.

Sales to wireline and wireless communications end markets were particularly weak during the quarter as a result of inventory rebalancing and consolidation activity among several large customers. All other end markets were up sequentially with the Industrial and Other category posting the strongest sales growth due primarily to strength from defense applications.

"In spite of a seasonally weak quarter, I am pleased with the growth of our New Products, which increased 18% sequentially. Sales from 90-nanometer (nm) and 65nm products were particularly strong during the quarter representing over 20% of total sales, up from less than 10% a year ago. Our success on these process nodes is a reflection of our clear technology leadership," said Wim Roelandts, Xilinx chief executive officer. "Additionally, the rollout of our latest Virtex-5 family, the industry's first field programmable gate array (FPGA) family on 65nm technology, remains on schedule and significantly ahead of competition."

Xilinx remains the only PLD company to ship 65nm products.
  • For the third consecutive year Xilinx earned the highest ranking for FPGA-level EDA vendor usage among respondents in the FPGA EDA tool vendor survey conducted by EE Times, part of CMP Technology LLC. In addition, Xilinx ranked number one in all the categories covering the "most important attributes in selecting an FPGA EDA tool vendor" and scored higher than any other FPGA vendor in user satisfaction.
