Xilinx Announces Fiscal 2015 Results; Record 70% FY Gross Margin, 28nm FY Sales Reach $580M

Product and Financial Highlights – Fiscal 2015

  • During fiscal year 2015, sales from Xilinx's 28nm product portfolio, which includes the 7 series FPGAs and the Zynq-7000 families, represented more than $580 million.  This was up from approximately $380 million in the prior fiscal year.  Material contributions from all end markets and all products drove the significant sales increase.   
  • The Company continued to drive gross margin improvement, achieving a record 70% gross margin in fiscal year 2015, up from 69% in the prior fiscal year.  This improvement reflects the Company's continued discipline and focus on driving gross margin expansion across our product portfolio.  
  • During fiscal 2015, Xilinx paid its shareholders a record $306 million in dividends and repurchased 15.3 million shares for $650 million.  Additionally, Xilinx increased its quarterly dividend by $0.02 per share to $0.31 per share, the 10th consecutive year of dividend increases since initiating its first dividend in 2004.  Xilinx has returned 100% of operating cash flow to stockholders in the form of dividend and share repurchase over the past ten years.     
  • Xilinx, in close partnership with TSMC, began shipping the 20nm Ultrascale family, including the industry's only 20nm high-end family and the industry's largest FPGA, which delivers over 4X the capacity of competitive devices.  This family scales from 20nm planar through 16nm FinFET technologies and beyond, while also scaling from monolithic through 3D ICs.  Additionally, Xilinx remains on track to tape out its first 16nm device with TSMC in the June quarter.    
  • Xilinx continued to strengthen its Software Development Environments (SDx™).  SDx enables developers with little or no FPGA expertise to use high level programming languages like C, C++ and OpenCL to leverage the power of programmable hardware with industry standard processors on or off chip.  Xilinx currently offers three different environments targeting high growth opportunities in areas such as data center, software defined networks and Industrial Internet-of-things. 

Business Outlook – June Quarter Fiscal 2016

  • Sales are expected to be flat to down 4% sequentially.
  • Gross margin is expected to be 69% to 70%.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $210 million including $2 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles. 
  • Other income and expenses are expected to be a net expense of approximately $12 million.
  • Fully diluted share count is expected to be approximately 266 million.
  • June quarter tax rate is expected to be approximately 13% - 14%.
