“We are pleased with our fiscal second quarter performance, which came in above the mid-point of guidance,” said Xilinx president and CEO Victor Peng. “Our strong results were driven by another record quarter in our Data Center Group and Aerospace & Defense businesses, as well as improvement in our Automotive and Broadcast end markets. In addition, RFSoC sales ramped meaningfully with a tier-1 wireless OEM customer for 5G radio deployment in North America.

“Our strategic transformation to an adaptive platform company continues with healthy design win momentum during the quarter. Notable customer wins included a marquee SmartNIC design win with a U.S. tier-1 hyperscaler, as well as Zynq MPSoC design wins with Subaru and Continental. We also remain on track with our Versal program ramp with a leading wireless OEM later this year.”

“Xilinx business continued to strengthen in fiscal Q2, buoyed by the economic recovery and increasing demand across our broad set of end markets,” said Xilinx CFO Brice Hill. “This drove better than expected sequential revenue growth of 5% and GAAP operating income growth of 17%, resulting in $232 million of free cash flow and $93 million in capital return to stockholders with our quarterly dividend. Our financial position is strong and we remain confident as we prepare to expand the Zynq and Versal product lines and capture additional growth opportunities.”

Product and Financial Highlights - Fiscal Second Quarter 2021

  • Advanced Products were 70% of total revenue, an 8% increase Q-T-Q and 13% decrease Y-T-Y. Zynq-based revenue grew 28% Q-T-Q and declined 20% Y-T-Y, and represented 22% of total revenue. Sequential strength was driven by improvement in the Automotive end market and 5G ramp in the Wireless end market.
  • Subaru selected Xilinx to power the new version of its vision-based advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS), EyeSight, which will provide advanced features including adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and pre-collision braking.
  • Xilinx announced the T1 Telco Accelerator Card for O-RAN distributed units (O-DUs) and virtual baseband units (vBBUs) in 5G networks, which enables the O-DU to deliver greater 5G performance and services while reducing overall system power consumption and cost.
  • Xilinx and Continental announced that Xilinx will power Continental’s new Advanced Radar Sensor (ARS) 540 with the Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC platform, creating the automotive industry’s first production-ready 4D imaging radar.
  • Xilinx announced a collaboration with Spline.AI and Amazon Web Services (AWS) that developed a X-ray classification deep-learning model and reference design kit that demonstrates high accuracy and low latency utilizing Vitis AI. This enables medical equipment makers and healthcare providers to rapidly deploy trained models for clinical and radiological inference applications, including for pneumonia and COVID-19 detection in mobile, portable and point-of-care devices.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Fiscal second quarter 2021 results and business outlook for the December quarter 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, other than free cash flow, 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, as described below:

M&A related expenses: These expenses mainly consist of legal and consulting fees associated with acquisition activities. The Company believes these costs do not reflect its 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.

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 other significant tax effects of post-acquisition tax integration transactions. The Company believes excluding post-acquisition tax integration items will facilitate a comparable evaluation of its current performance to its past performance. The third quarter of fiscal 2021 outlook does not reflect other tax related items which the Company is not able to predict without unreasonable efforts due to their inherent uncertainty.

In addition, free cash flow, which is cash flow from operations adjusted to exclude additions to software, property, plant, and equipment, is used by management when assessing the Company’s sources of liquidity, capital resources, and quality of earnings. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is helpful in understanding the Company’s capital requirements and provides an additional means to evaluate the cash flow trends of the Company’s business.
