Chipmaker Xilinx Forecasts Weak Revenue; Shares Slide

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 05:22 PM

Chipmaker Xilinx Inc. forecast disappointing revenue for the second quarter after reporting lower-than-anticipated first-quarter sales due to weak sales to telecom, aerospace and defense customers.

Xilinx, whose shares fell 9 percent in extended trading Tuesday, said it expected revenue in the second quarter to stay flat or fall up to 4 percent from the preceding quarter.

This would imply second-quarter revenue within a range of $588 million to $612.6 million. Analysts on average were expecting $644.3 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

"June quarter revenues were impacted by weaker-than-anticipated sales from our defense and wireless businesses," Xilinx Chief Executive Moshe Gavrielov said.

The company, which gets nearly half its revenue from telecom customers, said it expects second-quarter gross margins of about 70 percent.

Net income rose to $173.6 million, or 62 cents per share, in the first quarter ended June 28, compared with $157 million or 56 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose 6 percent to $612.6 million.

Analysts on average had expected earnings of 61 cents per share on revenue of $631.4 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Shares of the company closed at $48.15 on the Nasdaq on Tuesday. At about 5:30 p.m. in New York, the shares were down 9.3 percent at $43.68.

Semiconductors made by Xilinx are sold off the shelf and can be programmed by customers to do specific tasks — eliminating hefty expenses to develop custom chips.
