“We are pleased with our fourth quarter results as we delivered record revenues and double-digit year-over-year growth in the midst of a challenging supply chain environment,” said Victor Peng, Xilinx president and CEO. “Xilinx saw further improvement in demand across a majority of our diversified end markets with key strength in our Wireless, Data Center and Automotive markets, the pillars of our growth strategy. Our teams have executed well and we remain focused on continuing to meet customers’ critical needs.

“Our investment and strong execution toward our platform strategy are paying off as we are now in full production shipments of our 7nm Versal series, which is the culmination of a multi-year effort and a long-term growth driver for Xilinx. We also introduced new platforms for edge compute including Kria, an adaptive system-on-module (SOM) platform, as well as a cost-optimized UltraScale+ portfolio, to enable and accelerate innovation and AI at the edge.”

“Record Q4 revenues were driven by strength in Wireless and Data Center markets, as well as record quarters for our Industrial and Automotive end markets, which resulted in 6% sequential and 13% year-over-year growth,” said Brice Hill, Xilinx CFO. “Advanced Products also grew 6% sequentially and represented 73% of total revenue. Top line performance drove fourth quarter free cash flows of $227 million, or 27% of revenue, reflecting our efficient financial model.”

Product and Financial Highlights - Fiscal Year 2021

Data Center Group (DCG) delivered 20% annual revenue growth over fiscal 2020 driven by continuing adoption with hyperscale customers across compute, networking and storage workloads. Xilinx maintains strong engagements with hyperscalers to deliver solutions for AI compute, video acceleration, composable networking and computational storage. We also introduced new products and solutions to power the data center and the edge in fiscal 2021 including new Alveo SmartNICs, real-time server appliances for ultra-high-density video transcoding, the Samsung SmartSSD® Computational Storage Drive, the industry’s first adaptable computational storage platform, and the Xilinx App Store
Wired and Wireless Group (WWG) revenues were down 14% compared to fiscal 2020 reflecting China trade-related impacts as well as slowdowns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Wireless end market recovered in the second half of fiscal 2021 as 5G deployments accelerated in multiple regions across a variety of technologies. Versal is now in production with a Tier-1 OEM to enable beamforming technology in massive MIMO applications, and continues to gain momentum with design wins with multiple OEMs. RFSoC is in deployment with multiple customers and Xilinx has a strong design win pipeline with RFSoC DFE. Recent announcements with Mavenir and Fujitsu, as well as for the T1 Telco Accelerator Card, position Xilinx to support the emerging growth opportunities in O-RAN
Aerospace & Defense, Industrial and Test & Measurement (AIT) revenue grew 6% compared to fiscal 2020, driven by strength in Industrial, Scientific & Medical (ISM) and Test, Measurement & Emulation (TME) end markets. Zynq product penetration into applications that have traditionally used ASSPs and ASICs have provided significant expansion of available market opportunities
Automotive, Broadcast and Consumer (ABC) markets delivered 1% annual growth despite material impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Automotive end market recovered strongly in the second half of fiscal 2021 with consecutive quarters of record revenue in Q3 and Q4 despite ongoing supply chain challenges. Xilinx platforms continue to be adopted by leading global OEMs and manufacturers for ADAS applications, including Continental for a 4-D imaging radar and Subaru to power its new-generation EyeSight ADAS system
Xilinx introduced new solutions for the edge, including the new Kria adaptive system-on-module (SOM) platform for accelerating AI applications at the edge, and a cost-optimized UltraScale+ portfolio, for ultra-compact, high-performance edge compute
Strong adoption momentum continues for the Vitis software development platform with over 76,000 downloads and another 23,000 estimated downloads for Vitis AI development environment for accelerating AI inference. In addition, over 20,000 developers have been trained on Xilinx software tools, and more than 1,000 ISV partners have published over 200 applications across all Xilinx powered adaptive platforms including cloud, Alveo and SmartSSD

Commentary on AMD Transaction

As announced on October 27, 2020, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) intends to acquire Xilinx in an all-stock transaction valued at $35 billion. Due to the pending acquisition, Xilinx will not hold an earnings conference call or provide forward-looking guidance. Also, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement between the Company and AMD, Xilinx has suspended its quarterly dividend as well as its open market stock repurchase program.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Fiscal year 2021 and fourth quarter 2021 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.
