Xilinx Revises December Quarter Guidance

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today revised its guidance for the December quarter of fiscal 2009.

    -- The Company now expects December quarter sales to be down approximately
       6-10% sequentially due to much weaker than anticipated sales in the
       month of December from a broad base of end markets.  This is a revision
       from previous sales guidance of up 2% to down 2% sequentially.
    -- The Company continues to expect sales from the wireless communications
       and defense end markets to increase sequentially.
    -- Gross margin is expected to be unchanged at 63% to 64%.
    -- Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $175 - $177
       million, lower than the Company's original forecast of approximately
       $180 million.
    -- The Company is experiencing strong demand for its Virtex-5(R) FPGA
       family and continues to expect strong sequential sales growth in the
       December quarter.
