Fortune-100 Japanese Manufacturer To Standardize On Silicom Adapters For Mainstream Server Product Line

Stocks in this article: SILC

Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC)(TASE:SILC) today announced that the information technology division of one of Japan’s leading industrial companies has selected Silicom as its standard supplier of 1Gbps and 10Gbps adapters for two of its server product lines. The customer, a major server manufacturer, selected Silicom’s adapters after a comprehensive evaluation that confirmed Silicom’s superior technologies, manufacturing standards and support capabilities. Based on the customer’s guidance, Silicom expects related sales to ramp up to approximately $1 million per year.

“We are proud and grateful that one of Japan’s largest companies – a firm famous for its cautious approach to partnerships and exhaustive evaluation methodologies – has standardized on Silicom adapters for two of its server product lines,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO.

“Although this Design Win is significant in-and-of itself, the larger implications are even more encouraging. First, our experience has shown that the relationships we build with our customers often transform an initial Design Win into an ever-growing list of new Design Wins for the full Silicom product range, both for the same and other divisions. Just as important, our success at penetrating this significant customer, together with the earlier strategic Design Win that we achieved in Japan, positions us even more favorably for approaching other companies in this high-potential region.”

Mr. Orbach concluded, “Perhaps most important, this Design Win confirms the ongoing revenue-driving power of our traditional adapter product lines. As such, our future growth will continue to be driven by two strong parallel trends: the need for robust connectivity and bypass adapters, and the emerging demand for innovation in network appliances. We believe that the combination of these strong trends with our superb technology and reputation for support will drive our business to the next level during 2012 and beyond."
