Comments of Management
Commenting on the results, Shaike Orbach, President and CEO, said, “The second quarter was an outstanding period of strong top-line growth with best-ever records for operating income, net income and EPS, milestones which demonstrate the rapidly accelerating momentum of our business.
“In fact, our growth is being fuelled by some of the strongest drivers in today’s IT industry, including cloud computing, virtualization and others. These trends are driving an exponential increase in the need for connectivity, bandwidth and network appliances, which in turn is positioning our products as critical ‘building blocks’ for next-generation servers and appliances. As a result, our sales have been growing in step – actually at a faster rate – than these trends themselves.”
Mr. Orbach continued, “We now enjoy the ongoing business of over 75 OEM customers, many of whom offer us virtually unlimited potential for repeat orders and new Design Wins. In addition, we continue to add major new customers each quarter: for example, we have recently announced two wins, the first for our strategic SETAC-derivative modules, and the second for IBS (Intelligent BYPASS Switch), both of which demonstrating a combination of current and new products at current and new customers.”Mr. Orbach concluded, “Our success reflects the power of our differentiated products, our reputation for innovation and service, and our deep understanding of the market to win ongoing business from both existing and new customers. With fast-growing markets, a growing base of top-tier customers and an expanding portfolio of high-potential product lines, we are poised for accelerated growth during 2011 and beyond.” ## Conference Call Details Silicom’s Management will host an interactive conference today, July 25 th, at 9am Eastern Time (6am Pacific Time, 4pm Israel Time) to review and discuss the results.
