The tax provision for the third quarter of fiscal 2006 includes a $25.3 million charge related to the planned repatriation of $500 million in foreign earnings pursuant to the provisions of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. In addition, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $9.5 million primarily related to the ability to use certain credits that were previously accounted for as unusable.

December quarter sales were better than expected as a result of broad based product and end market strength. Sales from each of Xilinx's Virtex(TM) products were strong during the quarter contributing to strength in both the New and Mainstream product categories. From an end market perspective, sales from the Industrial and Other category were particularly strong, fueled by applications in defense and test and measurement.

"Xilinx's New Product sales were strong in the third quarter," said Wim Roelandts, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. "Sales from these products increased 24% sequentially driven by strong sales of Xilinx's Virtex-4(TM), Virtex-II Pro(TM), Spartan-3(TM) and CoolRunner(TM)-II families. New Products currently represent 33% of total sales, up from 30% last quarter and up from 20% in the same quarter a year ago. I am also pleased with our continued manufacturing efficiencies and solid financial management which contributed to improved gross and operating margins. Gross margin in the quarter increased to 63%, up from 61% in the prior quarter and operating margin increased to 27%, up from 21% in the prior quarter."
