“I am pleased to report that we were able to exceed the midpoint of our revenue guidance for the fiscal second quarter amidst a challenging business environment driven by global trade disputes.  Overall, the first half of our current fiscal year remained strong despite the impact of continued business restrictions related to Huawei which was offset by higher than expected 5G product demand from other global communications OEMs and stronger than expected growth in our data center business,” said Victor Peng, president and chief executive officer.  “However, we are seeing a combination of headwinds in the second half related to continuing business restrictions, weaker demand for communications products and macro-related weakness offsetting strong overall growth in data center and improvement across our core vertical markets. For fiscal 2020, we believe that third quarter will be our low point and we expect to see a return to sequential revenue growth in our fourth quarter.  Despite the weaker third quarter, we expect fiscal year 2020 revenues to grow approximately six percent compared to fiscal year 2019, which represents the midpoint of our guidance.”

Product and Financial Highlights – Fiscal Second Quarter 2020

  • The Advanced Products category increased 29% year over year and constituted approximately 74% of total revenues in the second quarter. Our 16 nanometer (nm) node continued its accelerated ramp, with revenues increasing over 3 times year-over-year, primarily driven by customers in 5G and Data Center.
  • Xilinx announced the expansion of its 16nm Virtex® UltraScale+™ family to include the world’s largest FPGA — the Virtex UltraScale+ VU19P. With 35 billion transistors, the VU19P provides the highest logic density and I/O count on a single device ever built, enabling emulation and prototyping of tomorrow’s most advanced ASIC and SoC technologies, as well as test, measurement, compute, networking, aerospace and defense-related applications.
  • Zynq-based revenues grew 61% year over year, with continuing business momentum from a broad base of end markets including Communications, Automotive and Industrial. The Zynq SoC platform, which includes Zynq at 28nm and both MPSoC and RFSoC at 16nm, now represents 26% of total revenues, indicating significant progress in Xilinx’s transformation into a platform company.
  • Xilinx announced the expansion of its Alveo accelerator card portfolio with the launch of the Alveo™ U50. The Alveo U50 is the industry’s first low profile, half-height, half-length accelerator card with PCIe Gen 4 support and delivers between 10-20x improvements in throughput, latency and power efficiency.
  • At the third annual Xilinx Developer Forum held in San Jose, California, Xilinx announced Vitis™, a unified software platform that enables a broad new range of developers – including software engineers and AI scientists – to take advantage of the power of hardware adaptability. The Vitis unified software platform automatically tailors the Xilinx hardware architecture to the software or algorithmic code without the need for hardware expertise. Rather than imposing a proprietary development environment, the Vitis platform plugs into common software developer tools and utilizes a rich set of optimized open source libraries, enabling developers to focus on their algorithms.
  • Xilinx repurchased 1.5 million shares of common stock at an average price of $103.60 per share and paid dividends of $93 million during the quarter.

Business Outlook – Fiscal Third Quarter 2020 & Fiscal Year 2020

The following guidance is based on current expectations and estimates, and as indicated, is presented on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. This guidance is forward-looking and actual results may differ materially, as a result of, among other things, the important factors discussed and referred to at the end of this release.

Xilinx’s fiscal third quarter and fiscal year 2020 guidance takes into account the impact from the U.S. government’s announced export restriction to one of our customers in China and assumes no revenues from that customer.

Conference Call

A conference call will be held today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss the September quarter financial results and management’s outlook for the December quarter and fiscal year 2020. The webcast and subsequent replay will be available in the investor relations section of the Company’s web site at www.investor.xilinx.com.  A telephonic replay of the call may be accessed later in the day by calling (855) 859-2056 and referencing confirmation code 5089455. The telephonic replay will be available for two weeks following the live call.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Fiscal second quarter 2020 results and business outlook for the December quarter and fiscal year 2020 include financial measures which are not determined in accordance with the United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), as indicated.  Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures has been reconciled, in each case, to the most directly-comparable GAAP measure, as indicated in the accompanying tables. The Company’s calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed herein to evaluate the Company’s financial results from continuing operations (excluding the impact of acquisitions) and compare to operating performance in past periods.  Similarly, Management believes presentation of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because it enables investors and analysts to evaluate operating expenses of the Company’s core business, excluding the impact of non-core business expenses such as acquisition-related amortization and non-recurring items.

M&A related expenses: These expenses mainly consist of legal and consulting fees associated with acquisition activities.  We believe these costs do not reflect the Company’s current operating performance. Consequently, the non-GAAP adjustments exclude these charges to facilitate an evaluation of the Company’s current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles:  Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets consists of amortization of intangible assets such as developed technology acquired in connection with business combinations. The non-GAAP adjustments exclude these charges to facilitate an evaluation of the Company’s current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.

Inventory valuation adjustment: Business combination accounting principles require us to measure acquired inventory at fair value. The fair value of inventory reflects the acquired company’s cost of manufacturing plus a portion of the expected profit margin. The non-GAAP adjustment to our cost of sales excludes the expected profit margin component that is recorded under business combination accounting principles associated with our acquisitions. We believe the adjustments are useful to investors as an additional means to reflect cost of sales and gross margin trends of our business.

Gain on investment related to acquisition: The Company excludes the accounting gain resulting from revaluation of its prior minority investment in DeePhi Tech. The Company believes excluding this gain will facilitate a comparable evaluation of its current operating performance to its past operating performance.

Income taxes: The Company excludes the income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments reflected in Operating Expenses and Other Income, as detailed above.  It also excludes U.S. tax reform related items.  The Company believes excluding U.S. tax reform related items will facilitate a comparable evaluation of its current performance to its past performance.  The third quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal year 2020 outlook does not reflect other tax related items which we are not able to predict without unreasonable efforts due to their inherent uncertainty.
