“Xilinx delivered another record quarter despite the continuing industry-wide supply chain constraints,” said Victor Peng, Xilinx president and CEO. “We saw broad strength in the vast majority of our markets in the quarter, driven by record performance from the Industrial, Auto, Broadcast and Consumer end markets, as well as improvement in the Aerospace & Defense end market. Our business and operations teams have made tremendous efforts to support our customers’ critical needs in what continues to be an extremely challenging supply environment. We also believe we remain on track for regulatory approval for the AMD transaction and to close by the end of the calendar year.

“Industry trends continue to drive strong demand for Xilinx products. Core markets are benefiting from multiple tail winds, including the increasing requirements for advanced processing and broad digitalization trends in all industries, that are driving both increased silicon content as well as overall demand. 5G volumes remain strong, led by North America and the Asia Pacific region, across multiple products. Our engagements with hyperscalers are deepening as FPGA-as-a-Service expands to new workloads, and we continue to drive solid design win momentum in Compute, Networking and Storage.”

“The record quarters in Industrial, Auto, Broadcast and Consumer end markets drove total sequential growth of 7% and 22% year-over-year,” said Brice Hill, Xilinx CFO. “Our transformation to an adaptive platform company continues to accelerate, with Adaptive SoC sequential revenue growth of 9% and year-over-year growth of 56%. In addition, Advanced Products grew 9% sequentially and 28% year-over-year and represented 74% of total revenue.

“Free cash flow of $107 million, or 11% of revenue, reflected expected normalization in working capital following exceptionally strong free cash flow in Q1. We are extremely pleased that record revenues, combined with strong gross and operating margins, drove record non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS in the quarter.”

Commentary on AMD Transaction

As announced on October 27, 2020, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) intends to acquire Xilinx in an all-stock transaction. Due to the pending acquisition, Xilinx will not hold an earnings conference call or provide forward-looking guidance. As permitted as of October 27, 2021 under the terms of the Merger Agreement between Xilinx and AMD, the Xilinx Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.37 per outstanding share of common stock. The dividend is conditioned upon and will only be payable if the merger has not closed on or before the record date for such dividend. Xilinx’s stock repurchase program remains suspended. The parties believe that the transaction remains on-track for regulatory approval and close by calendar year end.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Fiscal second quarter 2022 results 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. Xilinx’s (the Company) 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, advisory and consulting fees associated with acquisition activities, and also include fees and retention compensation related to the Company’s acquisition by AMD. The Company believes these costs do not reflect its current 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.

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.
