Xilinx Announces Ninth Circuit Court Ruling

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) announced that on May 27, 2009, it received an adverse judicial ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit regarding a previously-disclosed dispute with the Internal Revenue Service concerning the Company's cost sharing agreement with its wholly owned subsidiary, Xilinx Ireland.

As the Company has previously disclosed, on August 30, 2005, the U.S. Tax Court issued an opinion where the Court agreed with the Company that no amount for stock options was to be included in the Company's cost sharing agreement with Xilinx Ireland. The IRS appealed the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Although the Company opposed that appeal, believing that the Tax Court decided the case correctly, the Ninth Circuit has now ruled against the Company in a 2-1 majority decision.

The Ninth Circuit decision does not impact the operational direction of the Company. Considering the reserves that the Company has already recorded, the Company does not believe this decision will have a material impact on the future earnings of the Company. While the Company does not agree with the Appeals Court decision, it is premature at this time to comment on the Company's next steps as a result of the decision.
