Xilinx Announces Record Fiscal 2014 Revenues; 28nm Sales Increase More Than 40% Sequentially In Q4

 

Product and Financial Highlights – Fiscal 2014

  • During fiscal year 2014, sales from Xilinx's 28nm product portfolio, which includes the 7 series FPGAs and the Zynq-7000 family, surpassed $380 million with material contributions from all product families. 28nm momentum has continued to grow, driven by a wide range of applications that includes next generation LTE wireless base stations, OTN, Datacenter, industrial networking, surveillance, electronic warfare and automotive driver assist.
  • The Company continued to drive gross margin improvement, achieving a record 68.8% gross margin in fiscal year 2014, up from 66.0% in the prior fiscal year. This improvement reflects the Company's continued discipline and focus on driving gross margin expansion projects across our product portfolio.
  • Xilinx generated over $800 million in operating cash flow in fiscal 2014. Demonstrating a strong commitment to increase shareholder value, Xilinx paid its shareholders a record $267M in dividends and repurchased 5.2 million shares for $242 million. Xilinx recently increased its quarterly dividend by $0.04 per share to $0.29 per share. Additionally, more favorable financial market conditions and a continued strong credit rating enabled Xilinx to issue $1 billion of senior notes, using the proceeds to redeem its 2007 convertible notes.
  • Xilinx, in close partnership with TSMC, shipped the industry's first 20nm device, Kintex Ultrascale, in November 2013 and we expect to ship the first Virtex Ultrascale devices during the June quarter.
  • Xilinx announced the next generation Zynq UltraScale Multi-Processing SoC (MPSoC) Architecture targeted for 16nm.  The UltraScale MPSoC architecture extends Xilinx's ASIC-class UltraScale FPGA and 3D IC architectures to enable heterogeneous multi-processing SoCs with the right engines for the right tasks. Xilinx will be leveraging TSMC's FinFet + process, offering the highest performance FinFet transistors in the industry.  

Business Outlook – June Quarter Fiscal 2015

  • Sales are expected to be up 0% to 4% sequentially.
  • Gross margin is expected to be approximately 68%.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $220 million including $2.5 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles.
  • Other income and expenses are expected to be a net expense of approximately $8 million.
  • Fully diluted share count is expected to be approximately 286 million.
  • June quarter tax rate is expected to be approximately 13% - 14%.
