Xilinx Announces Restructuring Plans

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) announced restructuring measures designed to drive structural operating efficiencies across the Company. The Company expects to reduce its global workforce by up to 200 positions, or 6%, resulting in a pre-tax charge of approximately $11 to $13 million in the June quarter primarily related to severance pay expenses. Additionally, Xilinx is implementing other short-term cost savings including executive salary reductions and a broad-based employee salary freeze. As a result, Xilinx expects to generate cost and operating expense savings of approximately $4 to $5 million per quarter beginning in the June quarter. Restructuring charges will not impact the recently ended March quarter.

Over the longer term, the Company expects to implement further supply chain efficiencies resulting in additional restructuring charges totaling approximately $10 million over the September, December and March quarters of fiscal 2010. These efficiencies are expected to result in changes to the structure and location of certain global operations, which are expected to provide the Company with further cost savings over time.

Xilinx is currently in its quiet period, so an update to its business outlook will not be provided at this time. Further information concerning savings and costs related to the restructuring will be provided when the company announces March quarter results on April 22, 2009.
