Comments of Management

Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to report another solid quarter with revenues in line with our guidance, continued profitability and cash generation. While our short term visibility remains low due to the unclear ramp-up timing and patterns of a few of our major SD-WAN and NFV design wins, we are encouraged by the significant growth in the quantity of our SD-WAN systems that are being deployed through our customers in the market. Unfortunately, this growth is not yet reflected in our top-line revenues due to the excess inventory accumulated by one of our major SD-WAN customers, resulting in a delay of planned orders. We believe that once this excess inventory is depleted and the ramp-up rate of a few of our existing Design Wins progresses, our overall revenues will return to growth in 2020, even before winning new business.

"In parallel, we remain strongly confident about the potential of our FPGA and SD-WAN product lines as long-term revenue drivers that will add fuel to our growth. Momentum for these offerings has already started to build: we announced several FPGA wins that will begin to translate into revenues next year, and we are working to transform a significant portion of our FPGA and SD-WAN pipeline into new wins. At the same time, we continue to invest in expanding our technological lead in the space. The availability of our unique Packet Mover and other FPGA capabilities has already begun attracting interest from clients beyond our traditional Cloud/Data Center/Networking target markets, as demonstrated by a technology giant's selection of Silicom to design a customized 400G FPGA networking card. Any wins in these additional target markets will add to the significant potential of our wins in the Cloud/Data Center/Networking markets, which remain the focus of our investment and activities.  In parallel, the launch of our powerful new Intel Xeon-D (D2100)-based Edge Computing Platform for streamlining the deployment of white box services opens up opportunities in the high-potential Edge Computing market."

Mr. Orbach continued, "As a long-term player, we continue to invest in developing our client relationships, technology and products. With a strong balance sheet, growing markets, a superior product portfolio and excellent customer relationships, we are well positioned and confident in our prospects."
