Xilinx Updates June Quarter Guidance
- June quarter sales are expected to be down approximately 5% sequentially. This is a revision from previous sales guidance of down 4% to up 4% sequentially. The shortfall in sales is primarily due to supply constraints on certain Virtex-5 devices that are in high demand. We currently expect most of the existing delinquency issues to be resolved in the September quarter.
- Gross margin guidance of 61% to 63% and operating expense guidance of flat to slightly down sequentially remain unchanged.
No conference call will be held in conjunction with this guidance
revision. Additional commentary pertaining to the quarter will be available
when the company reports its first quarter financial results on
