XILINX, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with United States (U.S.) generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X, and should be read in conjunction with the Xilinx, Inc. (Xilinx or the Company) consolidated financial statements filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. The interim financial statements are unaudited, but reflect all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, of a normal, recurring nature necessary to provide a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for the interim periods shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending March 30, 2013 or any future period.
The Company uses a 52- to 53-week fiscal year ending on the Saturday nearest March 31. Fiscal 2013 is a 52-week year ending on March 30, 2013. Fiscal 2012, which ended on March 31, 2012, was also a 52-week fiscal year. The quarters ended June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011 each included 13 weeks.

Note 2.
Recent Accounting Changes and Accounting Pronouncements
The Company adopted the authoritative guidance to increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. Under this guidance, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The Company elected to present its comprehensive income in a separate but consecutive statement. This guidance does not affect the underlying accounting for components of other comprehensive income.

Note 3.
Significant Customers and Concentrations of Credit Risk
Avnet, Inc. (Avnet), one of the Company’s distributors, distributes the Company’s products worldwide. As of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, Avnet accounted for 59% and 67% of the Company’s total net accounts receivable, respectively. Resale of product through Avnet accounted for 46% and 49% of the Company’s worldwide net revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively. The percentage of accounts receivable due from Avnet and the percentage of worldwide net revenues from Avnet are consistent with historical patterns.
Xilinx is subject to concentrations of credit risk primarily in its trade accounts receivable and investments in debt securities to the extent of the amounts recorded on the consolidated balance sheet. The Company attempts to mitigate the concentration of credit risk in its trade receivables through its credit evaluation process, collection terms, distributor sales to diverse end customers and through geographical dispersion of sales. Xilinx generally does not require collateral for receivables from its end customers or from distributors.
No end customer accounted for more than 10% of net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012.
The Company mitigates concentrations of credit risk in its investments in debt securities by currently investing more than 88% of its portfolio in AA or higher grade securities as rated by Standard & Poor’s or Moody’s Investors Service. The Company’s methods to arrive at investment decisions are not solely based on the rating agencies’ credit ratings. Xilinx also performs additional credit due diligence and conducts regular portfolio credit reviews, including a review of counterparty credit risk related to the Company’s forward currency exchange contracts. Additionally, Xilinx limits its investments in the debt securities of a single issuer based upon the issuer’s credit rating and attempts to further mitigate credit risk by diversifying risk across geographies and type of issuer.
As of June 30, 2012, approximately 33% of the portfolio consisted of mortgage-backed securities. All of the mortgage-backed securities in the investment portfolio were issued by U.S. government-sponsored enterprises and agencies and are rated AA+ by Standard & Poor’s and AAA by Moody’s Investors Service.
The global credit and capital markets have continued to experience adverse conditions that have negatively impacted the values of various types of investment and non-investment grade securities, and have experienced volatility and disruption due to instability in the global financial system, uncertainty related to global economic conditions and concerns regarding sovereign financial stability. Therefore, there is a risk that the Company may incur other-than-temporary impairment charges for certain types of investments should credit market conditions deteriorate or the underlying assets fail to perform as anticipated. See "Note 5. Financial Instruments" for a table of the Company’s available-for-sale securities.

Note 4.
Fair Value Measurements
The guidance for fair value measurements established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required or permitted to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which Xilinx would transact and also considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions and risk of nonperformance.
The Company determines the fair value for marketable debt securities using industry standard pricing services, data providers and other third-party sources and by internally performing valuation testing and analyses. The Company primarily uses a consensus price or weighted-average price for its fair value assessment. The Company determines the consensus price using market prices from a variety of industry standard pricing services, data providers, security master files from large financial institutions and other third party sources and uses those multiple prices as inputs into a distribution-curve-based algorithm to determine the daily market value. The pricing services use multiple inputs to determine market prices, including reportable trades, benchmark yield curves, credit spreads and broker/dealer quotes as well as other industry and economic events. For certain securities with short maturities, such as discount commercial paper and certificates of deposit, the security is accreted from purchase price to face value at maturity. If a subsequent transaction on the same security is observed in the marketplace, the price on the subsequent transaction is used as the current daily market price and the security will be accreted to face value based on the revised price. For certain other securities, such as student loan auction rate securities, the Company performs its own valuation analysis using a discounted cash flow pricing model.
The Company validates the consensus prices by taking random samples from each asset type and corroborating those prices using reported trade activity, benchmark yield curves, binding broker/dealer quotes or other relevant price information. There have not been any changes to the Company's fair value methodology during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and the Company did not adjust or override any fair value measurements as of June 30, 2012.
Fair Value Hierarchy
The fair value framework requires the categorization of assets and liabilities into three levels based upon the assumptions (inputs) used to price the assets or liabilities. The guidance for fair value measurements requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified and disclosed in one of the following categories:
Level 1 — Quoted (unadjusted) prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
The Company's Level 1 assets consist of U.S. government and agency securities and money market funds.
Level 2 — Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.
The Company's Level 2 assets consist of bank certificates of deposit, commercial paper, corporate bonds, municipal bonds, U.S. agency securities, foreign government and agency securities, floating-rate notes, mortgage-backed securities and a debt mutual fund. The Company's Level 2 assets and liabilities also include foreign currency forward contracts and commodity swap contracts.
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities. Level 3 assets and liabilities include those whose fair value measurements are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar valuation techniques, as well as significant management judgment or estimation.
The Company's Level 3 assets and liabilities include student loan auction rate securities and the embedded derivative related to the Company's debentures.
Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
In instances where the inputs used to measure fair value fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the fair value measurement has been determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The Company's assessment of the significance of a particular item to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, including the consideration of inputs specific to the asset or liability. The following tables present information about the Company's assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012:

As of June 30, 2012, marketable securities measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs were comprised of $28.8 million of student loan auction rate securities. Auction failures during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 and the lack of market activity and liquidity required that the Company's student loan auction rate securities be measured using observable market data and Level 3 inputs. The fair values of the Company's student loan auction rate securities were based on the Company's assessment of the underlying collateral and the creditworthiness of the issuers of the securities. Substantially all of the underlying assets that secure the student loan auction rate securities are pools of student loans originated under Federal Family Education Loan Program, which are substantially guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Education. The fair values of the Company's student loan auction rate securities were determined using a discounted cash flow pricing model that incorporated financial inputs such as projected cash flows, discount rates, expected interest rates to be paid to investors and an estimated liquidity discount. The most significant assumptions of the model are the weighted-average life over which cash flows were projected of 8 years (given the collateral composition of the securities) and the discount rates ranging from 2.51% to 3.23% that were applied to the pricing model (based on market data and information for comparable- or similar-term student loan asset-backed securities). A hypothetical 20% increase or decrease of the weighted-average life over which cash flows were projected and 100 basis points (one percentage point) increase or decrease in the discount rates would not have a material effect on the fair values of the Company's student loan auction rate securities. The Company does not intend to sell, nor does it believe it is more likely than not that it would be required to sell, the student loan auction rate securities before anticipated recovery, which could be at final maturity that ranges from December 2027 to May 2046.
    
In March 2007, the Company issued $1.00 billion principal amount of 3.125% junior convertible debentures due March 15, 2037 (3.125% Debentures) to an initial purchaser in a private offering. As a result of repurchases in fiscal 2009, the remaining principal amount of the 3.125% Debentures as of June 30, 2012 was $689.6 million. The 3.125% Debentures included embedded features that qualify as an embedded derivative, and was separately accounted for as a discount on the 3.125% Debentures. Its fair value was established at the inception of the 3.125% Debentures. Each quarter, the change in the fair value of the embedded derivative, if any, is recorded in the consolidated statements of income. The Company uses a derivative valuation model to derive the value of the embedded derivative. Key inputs into this valuation model are the Company’s current stock price, risk-free interest rates, the stock dividend yield, the stock volatility and the 3.125% Debenture’s credit spread over London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). The first three inputs are based on observable market data and are considered Level 2 inputs while the last two inputs require management judgment and are Level 3 inputs.

Financial Instruments Not Recorded at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

Our Senior Convertible Debentures due June 15, 2017 (2.625% Debentures) and 3.125% Debentures are measured at fair value on a quarterly basis for disclosure purposes. The fair value of the 2.625% and 3.125% Debentures as of June 30, 2012 were approximately $766.5 million and $826.1 million, respectively, based on the last trading price of the respective debentures for the period (classified as level 2 in fair value hierarchy due to relatively low trading volume).

The gross unrealized losses on these investments were primarily related to failed auction rate securities, which was due to adverse conditions in the global credit markets during the past three years. The Company reviewed the investment portfolio and determined that the gross unrealized losses on these investments as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 were temporary in nature as evidenced by the fluctuations in the gross unrealized losses within the investment categories. Furthermore, the aggregate of individual unrealized losses that had been outstanding for 12 months or more was not significant as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012. The Company neither intends to sell these investments nor concludes that it is more-likely-than-not that it will have to sell them until recovery of their carrying values. The Company also believes that it will be able to collect both principal and interest amounts due to the Company at maturity, given the high credit quality of these investments and any related underlying collateral.

Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company’s primary objective for holding derivative financial instruments is to manage foreign currency exchange rate risk and interest rate risk. As a result of the use of derivative financial instruments, the Company is exposed to the risk that counterparties to derivative contracts may fail to meet their contractual obligations. The Company manages counterparty credit risk in derivative contracts by reviewing counterparty creditworthiness on a regular basis, establishing collateral requirement and limiting exposure to any single counterparty. The right of set-off that exists with certain transactions enables the Company to net amounts due to and from the counterparty, reducing the maximum loss from credit risk in the event of counterparty default.
As of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, the Company had the following outstanding forward currency exchange contracts (in notional amount), which are derivative financial instruments:

As part of the Company’s strategy to reduce volatility of operating expenses due to foreign exchange rate fluctuations, the Company employs a hedging program with a forward outlook of up to two years for major foreign-currency-denominated operating expenses. The outstanding forward currency exchange contracts expire at various dates between July 2012 and May 2014. The net unrealized gain or loss, which approximates the fair market value of the above contracts, is expected to be realized and reclassified into net income within the next two years.
As of June 30, 2012, 98% of the forward foreign currency exchange contracts were designated and qualified as cash flow hedges and the effective portion of the gain or loss on the forward contracts was reported as a component of other comprehensive income and reclassified into net income in the same period during which the hedged transaction affects earnings. The estimated amount of such gains or losses as of June 30, 2012 that is expected to be reclassified into earnings within the next 12 months was a net loss of $5.0 million. The ineffective portion of the gains or losses on the forward contracts was included in the net income for all periods presented.
As of June 30, 2012, 2% of the forward foreign currency exchange contracts were designated and qualified as fair value hedges, and the related realized and unrealized gain or loss on the forward contracts was immaterial for all periods presented.
The Company may enter into forward foreign currency exchange contracts to hedge firm commitments such as acquisitions and capital expenditures. Gains and losses on foreign currency forward contracts that are designated as hedges of anticipated transactions, for which a firm commitment has been attained and the hedged relationship has been effective, are deferred and included in income or expenses in the same period that the underlying transaction is settled. Gains and losses on any instruments not meeting the above criteria are recognized in income or expenses in the consolidated statements of income as they are incurred.
The 3.125% Debentures include provisions which qualify as an embedded derivative. See "Note 4. Fair Value Measurements" for more discussion about the embedded derivative. The fair value of the embedded derivative was $1.5 million and $931 thousand as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, respectively. The changes in the fair value of the embedded derivative were recorded to interest and other expense, net, on the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of income.
The Company had the following derivative instruments as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, located on the condensed consolidated balance sheet, utilized for risk management purposes detailed above:

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, the tax benefit realized for the tax deduction from option exercises and other awards, including amounts credited to additional paid-in capital, totaled $617 thousand and $5.3 million, respectively.
The fair values of stock options and stock purchase plan rights under the Company’s equity incentive plans and Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) were estimated as of the grant date using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company’s expected stock price volatility assumption for stock options is estimated using implied volatility of the Company’s traded options. The expected life of options granted is based on the historical exercise activity as well as the expected disposition of all options outstanding. The expected life of options granted also considers the actual contractual term. No options were granted in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The weighted-average fair values per share of stock options granted during the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $7.80 which were estimated at the date of grant using the following weighted-average assumptions:
 
Expected life of options (years)

Expected stock price volatility

Risk-free interest rate

Dividend yield

The estimated fair values of restricted stock unit (RSU) awards were calculated based on the market price of Xilinx common stock on the date of grant, reduced by the present value of dividends expected to be paid on Xilinx common stock prior to vesting. The per share weighted-average fair values of RSUs granted during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $31.35 ($31.75 for the first quarter of fiscal 2012), which were calculated based on estimates at the date of grant using the following weighted-average assumptions:

The types of awards allowed under the 2007 Equity Plan include incentive stock options, non-qualified stock options, RSUs, restricted stock and stock appreciation rights. To date, the Company has issued a mix of non-qualified stock options and RSUs under the 2007 Equity Plan. As of June 30, 2012, 15.0 million shares remained available for grant under the 2007 Equity Plan.
The total pre-tax intrinsic value of options exercised during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011 was $4.0 million and $14.9 million, respectively. This intrinsic value represents the difference between the exercise price and the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of exercise.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan
Under the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan, no shares were issued during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 or 2012. The next scheduled purchase under the Employee Stock Purchase Plan is in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. As of June 30, 2012, 8.2 million shares were available for future issuance out of 46.5 million shares authorized.

Note 8.
Net Income Per Common Share
The computation of basic net income per common share for all periods presented is derived from the information on the consolidated statements of income, and there are no reconciling items in the numerator used to compute diluted net income per common share. The total shares used in the denominator of the diluted net income per common share calculation includes 6.0 million and 5.3 million potentially dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively, that are not included in basic net income per common share by applying the treasury stock method to the impact of incremental shares issuable assuming conversion of the debentures (see "Note 10. Convertible Debentures and Revolving Credit Facility"). Additionally, the total shares used in the denominator of the diluted net income per common share calculation includes 4.7 million and 5.5 million potentially dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively, that are not included in basic net income per common share by applying the treasury stock method to the impact of our equity incentive plans.
Outstanding stock options, RSUs and warrants to purchase approximately 23.7 million and 26.9 million shares for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively, under the Company’s stock award plans were excluded from diluted net income per common share by applying the treasury stock method, as their inclusion would have been antidilutive. These options, RSUs and warrants could be dilutive in the future if the Company’s average share price increases and is greater than the combined exercise prices and the unamortized fair values of these options, RSUs and warrants.
To hedge against potential dilution upon conversion of the 2.625% Debentures, the Company also purchased call options on its common stock from the hedge counterparties. The call options give the Company the right to purchase up to 19.8 million shares of its common stock at $30.29 per share. These call options are not considered for purposes of calculating the total shares outstanding under the basic and diluted net income per share, as their effect would be anti-dilutive. Upon exercise, the call options would serve to neutralize the dilutive effect of the 2.625% Debentures and potentially reduce the weighted number of diluted shares used in per share calculations.

Convertible Debentures and Revolving Credit Facility
2.625% Senior Convertible Debentures
In June 2010, the Company issued $600.0 million principal amount of 2.625% Debentures to qualified institutional investors. The 2.625% Debentures are senior in right of payment to the Company’s existing and future unsecured indebtedness that is expressly subordinated in right of payment to the 2.625% Debentures, including the 3.125% Debentures described below. The 2.625% Debentures are convertible, subject to certain conditions, into shares of Xilinx common stock at a conversion rate of 33.0164 shares of common stock per $1 thousand principal amount of the 2.625% Debentures, representing an effective conversion price of approximately $30.29 per share of common stock. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment for certain events as outlined in the indenture governing the 2.625% Debentures but will not be adjusted for accrued interest.
The carrying values of the liability and equity components of the 2.625% Debentures are reflected in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets as follows:

3.125% Junior Subordinated Convertible Debentures
In March 2007, the Company issued $1.00 billion principal amount of 3.125% Debentures to an initial purchaser in a private offering. The 3.125% Debentures are subordinated in right of payment to the Company’s existing and future senior debt, including the 2.625% Debentures, and to the other liabilities of the Company’s subsidiaries. During fiscal 2009, the Company repurchased some of its 3.125% Debentures, resulting in approximately $689.6 million of debt outstanding in principal amount as of June 30, 2012. The 3.125% Debentures are convertible, subject to certain conditions, into shares of Xilinx common stock at a conversion rate of 33.5468 shares of common stock per $1 thousand principal amount of 3.125% Debentures, representing an effective conversion price of approximately $29.81 per share of common stock. The conversion rate is subject to adjustment for certain events as outlined in the indenture governing the 3.125% Debentures but will not be adjusted for accrued interest.
The carrying values of the liability and equity components of the 3.125% Debentures are reflected in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets as follows:

Revolving Credit Facility

In December 2011, the Company entered into a five-year $250.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility with a syndicate of banks (expiring in December 2016). Borrowings under the credit facility will bear interest at a benchmark rate plus an applicable margin based upon the Company’s credit rating. In connection with the credit facility, the Company is required to maintain certain financial and nonfinancial covenants. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had made no borrowings under this credit facility and was not in violation of any of the covenants.

Note 11.
Common Stock Repurchase Program
The Board of Directors has approved stock repurchase programs enabling the Company to repurchase its common stock in the open market or through negotiated transactions with independent financial institutions. In June 2010, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to $500.0 million of common stock (2010 Repurchase Program). The 2010 Repurchase Program has no stated expiration date. Through June 30, 2012, the Company had used $411.9 million of the $500.0 million authorized under the 2010 Repurchase Program, leaving $88.1 million available for future repurchases. The Company’s current policy is to retire all repurchased shares and debentures, and consequently, no treasury shares or debentures were held as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company repurchased 3.1 million shares of common stock in the open market for a total of $99.0 million under the 2010 Repurchase Program. During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company repurchased 1.9 million shares of common stock for a total of $65.7 million.

Income Taxes
The Company recorded a tax provision of $25.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 as compared to $26.1 million in the same prior year period, representing effective tax rates of 16% and 14%, respectively.

19

Table of Contents

The difference between the U.S. federal statutory tax rate of 35% and the Company’s effective tax rate is primarily due to income earned in lower tax rate jurisdictions, for which no U.S. income tax has been provided, as the Company intends to permanently reinvest these earnings outside of the U.S.
The Company’s total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2012, determined in accordance with FASB authoritative guidance for measuring uncertain tax positions, increased by $677 thousand in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 to $65.7 million. The total amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if realized in a future period, would favorably affect the effective tax rate was $41.8 million as of June 30, 2012. It is reasonably possible that changes to our unrecognized tax benefits could be significant in the next twelve months due to tax audit settlements and lapses of statutes of limitation. As a result of uncertainties regarding tax audit settlements and their possible outcomes, an estimate of the range of increase or decrease that could occur in the next twelve months cannot be made.
The Company’s policy is to include interest and penalties related to income tax liabilities within the provision for income taxes on the consolidated statements of income. The balance of accrued interest and penalties recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 was $938 thousand. The increase of interest and penalties included in the Company’s provision for income taxes totaled $99 thousand in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
The Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal audits by taxing authorities for years through fiscal 2008. The Company is no longer subject to U.S. state audits for years through fiscal 2004, except for fiscal years 1996 through 2001 which are still open for audit purposes. The Company is no longer subject to tax audits in Ireland for years through fiscal 2007.

Commitments
Xilinx leases some of its facilities and office buildings under non-cancelable operating leases that expire at various dates through October 2021. Additionally, Xilinx entered into a land lease in conjunction with the Company’s building in Singapore, which will expire in November 2035 and the lease cost was settled in an up-front payment in June 2006. Some of the operating leases for facilities and office buildings require payment of operating costs, including property taxes, repairs, maintenance and insurance. Most of the Company’s leases contain renewal options for varying terms. Approximate future minimum lease payments under non-cancelable operating leases are as follows:

Aggregate future rental income to be received, which includes rents from both owned and leased property, totaled $6.1 million as of June 30, 2012. Rent expense, net of rental income, under all operating leases was $866 thousand and $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011, respectively. Rental income was not material for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 or 2012.
Other commitments as of June 30, 2012 totaled $121.1 million and consisted of purchases of inventory and other non-cancelable purchase obligations related to subcontractors that manufacture silicon wafers and provide assembly and some test services. The Company expects to receive and pay for these materials and services in the next three to six months, as the products meet delivery and quality specifications. As of June 30, 2012, the Company also had $22.8 million of non-cancelable license obligations to providers of electronic design automation software and hardware/software maintenance expiring at various dates through March 2015.
The Company committed up to $5.0 million to acquire, in the future, rights to intellectual property until July 2023. License payments will be amortized over the useful life of the intellectual property acquired.

Note 16.
Product Warranty and Indemnification
The Company generally sells products with a limited warranty for product quality. The Company provides an accrual for known product issues if a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated. As of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and the end of fiscal 2012, the accrual balance of the product warranty liability were immaterial.

Table of Contents

The Company offers, subject to certain terms and conditions, to indemnify certain customers and distributors for costs and damages awarded against these parties in the event the Company’s hardware products are found to infringe third-party intellectual property rights, including patents, copyrights or trademarks, and to compensate certain customers for limited specified costs they actually incur in the event our hardware products experience epidemic failure. To a lesser extent, the Company may from time-to-time offer limited indemnification with respect to its software products. The terms and conditions of these indemnity obligations are limited by contract, which obligations are typically perpetual from the effective date of the agreement. The Company has historically received only a limited number of requests for indemnification under these provisions and has not made any significant payments pursuant to these provisions. The Company cannot estimate the maximum amount of potential future payments, if any, that the Company may be required to make as a result of these obligations due to the limited history of indemnification claims and the unique facts and circumstances that are likely to be involved in each particular claim and indemnification provision. However, there can be no assurances that the Company will not incur any financial liabilities in the future as a result of these obligations.

Contingencies

Patent Litigation

On December 28, 2007, a patent infringement lawsuit was filed by PACT XPP Technologies, AG (PACT) against the Company in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division (PACT XPP Technologies, AG. v. Xilinx, Inc. and Avnet, Inc. Case No. 2:07-CV-563). The lawsuit pertained to eleven different patents and PACT sought injunctive relief, damages including enhanced damages, interest and attorneys' fees. Nine of the 11 patents were dismissed from the case prior to trial. Trial commenced in the matter on May 14, 2012 and on May 18, 2012 the jury concluded its deliberations. The jury found five claims of the two patents held by PACT were valid and were willfully infringed by the Company. The jury awarded PACT the sum of $15.4 million as damages and royalties on past Xilinx sales. The presiding judge will decide the component for willful infringement at a future date which has not yet been determined, and such enhanced damages, including the willfulness component, could be as much as treble the $15.4 million jury verdict. In its post trial motions, the plaintiff has moved for attorneys' fees, an ongoing royalty for future sales of infringing products, pre- and post-judgment interest, and certain other relief. The Company intends to appeal the verdict and has filed motions for judgment as a matter of law.

On February 14, 2011, the Company filed a complaint for declaratory judgment of patent noninfringement and invalidity against Intellectual Ventures Management LLC and related entities (Intellectual Ventures) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. On September 30, 2011, the Company amended its complaint in this case to eliminate certain defendants and patents from the action (Xilinx, Inc. v. Intellectual Ventures I LLC and Intellectual Ventures II LLC, Case No CV11-0671). The lawsuit pertains to five patents and seeks judgments of non-infringement by Xilinx and judgments that the patents are invalid and unenforceable, as well as costs and attorneys' fees.

On February 15, 2011, Intellectual Ventures added the Company as a defendant in its complaint for patent infringement previously filed against Altera Corporation (Altera), Microsemi Corporation (Microsemi) and Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (Lattice) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware (Intellectual Ventures I LLC and Intellectual Ventures II LLC v. Altera Corporation, Microsemi Corporation, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation and Xilinx, Inc., Case No. 10-CV-1065). The lawsuit pertains to five patents, four of which Xilinx is alleged to be infringing. Intellectual Ventures seeks unspecified damages, interest and attorneys' fees and the proceedings are in their early stages. The Company is unable to estimate its range of possible loss in this matter at this time.

On October 17, 2011, Xilinx filed a complaint for patent non-infringement and invalidity and violation of California Business and Professions Code Section 17200 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Intellectual Ventures and related entities as well as additional defendants (Xilinx, Inc. v. Intellectual Ventures, LLC. Intellectual Ventures Management, LLC, Detelle Relay KG, LLC, Roldan Block NY LLC, Latrosse Technologies LLC, TR Technologies Foundation LLC, Taichi Holdings, LLC, Noregin Assets N.V., LLC and Intellectual Venture Funding LLC Case No CV-04407). By order dated January 25, 2012, the Court granted with leave to amend defendants' motion to dismiss Xilinx's claim for violation of California Business and Professions Code section 17200. The Company has amended its complaint to remove the claim for violation of California Business and Professions Code section 17200. The remainder of the lawsuit pertains to seven patents and seeks judgments of non-infringement by Xilinx and judgments that the patents are invalid and unenforceable, as well as costs and attorneys' fees.

On March 23, 2012, a patent infringement lawsuit was filed by Advanced Processor Technologies LLC (APT) against the Company in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division (Advanced Processor Technologies LLC v. Xilinx, Inc., Case No. 2;12-CV-158). The lawsuit pertains to three patents and APT seeks royalties, injunctive relief and unspecified damages and the proceedings are in their early stages. The Company is unable to estimate its range of possible loss in this matter at this time.

On May 30, 2012, a patent infringement lawsuit was filed by Semcon Tech, LLC (Semcon) against the Company in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (Semcon Tech, LLC v. Xilinx, Inc., Case No. 1:12-CV-00691). The lawsuit pertains to one patent and Semcon seeks unspecified damages, costs and expenses and the proceedings are in their early stages. The Company is unable to estimate its range of possible loss in this matter at this time.

Other Matters

Except as stated above, there are no pending legal proceedings of a material nature to which the Company is a party or of which any of its property is the subject.

From time to time, the Company is involved in various disputes and litigation matters that arise in the ordinary course of its business. These include disputes and lawsuits related to intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, licensing, contract law, tax, regulatory, distribution arrangements, employee relations and other matters. Periodically, the Company reviews the status of each matter and assesses its potential financial exposure. If the potential loss from any claim or legal proceeding is considered probable and a range of possible losses can be estimated, the Company accrues a liability for the estimated loss. Legal proceedings are subject to uncertainties, and the outcomes are difficult to predict. Because of such uncertainties, accruals are based only on the best information available at the time. As additional information becomes available, the company continues to reassess the potential liability related to pending claims and litigation and may revise estimates.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The statements in this Management's Discussion and Analysis that are forward-looking, within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, involve numerous risks and uncertainties and are based on current expectations. The reader should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements for many reasons, including those risks discussed under "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this document. Often, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking words, such as "may," "will," "could," "should," "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "estimate," "continue," "plan," "intend," "project" and other similar terminology, or the negative of such terms. We disclaim any responsibility to update or revise any forward-looking statement provided in this Management's Discussion and Analysis for any reason.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The methods, estimates and judgments we use in applying our most critical accounting policies have a significant impact on the results we report in our consolidated financial statements. The SEC has defined critical accounting policies as those that are most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and require us to make our most difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, our critical accounting policies include: valuation of marketable securities, which impacts losses on debt and equity securities when we record impairments; revenue recognition, which impacts the recording of revenues; and valuation of inventories, which impacts cost of revenues and gross margin. Our critical accounting policies also include: the assessment of impairment of long-lived assets including acquisition-related intangibles, which impacts their valuation; the assessment of the recoverability of goodwill, which impacts goodwill impairment; accounting for income taxes, which impacts the provision or benefit recognized for income taxes, as well as the valuation of deferred tax assets recorded on our consolidated balance sheet; and valuation and recognition of stock-based compensation, which impacts gross margin, research and development (R&D) expenses, and selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses. For more discussion please refer to "Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial condition and Results of Operations" included in our Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2012 filed with the SEC. We also have other key accounting policies that are not as subjective, and therefore, their application would not require us to make estimates or judgments that are as difficult, but which nevertheless could significantly affect our financial reporting.

Net Revenues
We sell our products to global manufacturers of electronic products in end markets such as wired and wireless communications, aerospace and defense, industrial, scientific and medical and audio, video and broadcast. The vast majority of our net revenues are generated by sales of our semiconductor products, but we also generate sales from support products. We classify our product offerings into four categories: New, Mainstream, Base and Support Products. The composition of each product category is as

24

Table of Contents

follows:
New Products include our most recent product offerings and include the Virtex®-7, Kintex-7, Zynq-7000, Virtex-6 and Spartan®-6 product families.
Mainstream Products include the Virtex-5, Spartan-3 and CoolRunner™-II product families.
Base Products consist of our older product families including the Virtex-4, Virtex-II, Virtex-E, Virtex, Spartan-II, Spartan, CoolRunner and XC9500 products.
Support Products include configuration products (PROMs), software, IP, customer training, design services and support.
These product categories, except for Support Products, are modified on a periodic basis to better reflect the maturity of the products and advances in technology. The most recent modification was made on April 1, 2012, which was the beginning of our fiscal 2013. The amounts for the prior periods presented have been reclassified to conform to the new categorization. New Products include our most recent product offerings and are typically designed into our customers’ latest generation of electronic systems. Mainstream Products are generally several years old and designed into customer programs that are currently shipping in full production. Base Products are older than Mainstream Products with demand generated generally by the customers’ oldest systems still in production. Support Products are generally products or services sold in conjunction with our semiconductor devices to aid customers in the design process.
Net revenues of $582.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 represented a 5% decrease from the comparable prior year period of $615.5 million. Net revenues from New Products increased significantly in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 versus the comparable prior year period, but were offset by declines from our Mainstream, Base and Support Products. No end customer accounted for more than 10% of our net revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
For the first three months of fiscal 2013, approximately 57% of our net revenues were from products sold to distributors for subsequent resale to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or their subcontract manufacturers. As of June 30, 2012, we had $77.8 million of deferred revenue and $21.1 million of deferred cost of revenues recognized as a net $56.7 million of deferred income on shipments to distributors. As of March 31, 2012, we had $90.0 million of deferred revenue and $23.0 million of deferred cost of revenues recognized as a net $67.0 million of deferred income on shipments to distributors. The deferred income on shipments to distributors that will ultimately be recognized in our consolidated statement of income will be different than the amount shown on the consolidated balance sheet due to actual price adjustments issued to the distributors when the product is sold to their end customers.

Net revenues from New Products increased significantly in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The increase was primarily due to increased sales from our 40-nanometer (nm) Virtex-6 and our 45-nm Spartan-6 product families. We also experienced a significant growth on our 28-nm products. We expect sales of New Products, as currently defined, to continue to grow as more customer programs enter into volume production with our 40/45-nm products and as our 28-nm products continue their sales ramp.
Net revenues from Mainstream Products decreased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The decrease was largely due to the decline in sales of our Virtex-5 product family.
Net revenues from Base Products decreased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decline in sales of our older products, in particular our Virtex-4 product family.

Table of Contents

Net revenues from Support Products decreased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year period. The decrease was due to a decline in sales from our PROM products.

Net Revenues by End Markets

Our end market revenue data is derived from our understanding of our end customers’ primary markets. On April 1, 2012, we modified our end market categories in two ways. First, Data Center customers were moved from the Data Processing category into the Communications category. Additionally, all end market categories were renamed to better reflect actual sales composition. Amounts for the prior periods presented have been reclassified to conform to the new categorization. Net revenues by end markets were reclassified into the following four categories: Communications and Data Center; Industrial, Aerospace and Defense; Broadcast, Consumer and Automotive; and Other. The percentage change calculation in the table below represents the year-to-year dollar change in each end market.
Net revenues by end markets for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012 were as follows:

Net revenues from the Communications and Data Center end market decreased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year period. The decrease was due to weaker sales from both wired and wireless communication applications.
Net revenues from the Industrial, Aerospace & Defense end market decreased (in terms of absolute dollars) in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 versus the comparable prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in sales from industrial, scientific and medical applications.
Net revenues from the Broadcast, Consumer and Automotive end market increased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The increase in net revenues was due to an increase in sales from audio, video and broadcast and automotive applications.
Net revenues from the Other end market decreased in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The decrease was due to weaker sales from computing and storage applications.

Gross margin was 2.3 percentage points higher in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from the comparable prior year period. The increase was driven primarily by continued overall cost improvement, and to a lesser extent by slightly improved mix of customers.

New Products generally have lower gross margins than Mainstream and Base Products as they are in the early stage of their product life cycle and have higher unit costs associated with relatively lower volumes and early manufacturing maturity.
Gross margin may be affected in the future due to shifts in the mix of customers and products, competitive-pricing pressure, manufacturing-yield issues and wafer pricing. We expect to mitigate any adverse impacts from these factors by continuing to improve yields on our New Products and by improving manufacturing efficiencies.
In order to compete effectively, we pass manufacturing cost reductions to our customers in the form of reduced prices to the extent that we can maintain acceptable margins. Price erosion is common in the semiconductor industry, as advances in both product architecture and manufacturing process technology permit continual reductions in unit cost. We have historically been able to offset much of this revenue decline in our mature products with increased revenues from newer products.

R&D spending increased $15.4 million, or 15%, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the same period last year. The increase was primarily attributable to higher expenses related to our 28-nm development activities during the current period and stock-based compensation.
We plan to continue to selectively invest in R&D efforts in areas such as new products and more advanced process development, IP cores and the development of new design and layout software. We may also consider acquisitions to complement our strategy for technology leadership and engineering resources in critical areas.

Amortization expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012 were related to the intangible assets obtained from acquisitions during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and first quarter of fiscal 2012. Prior to these recent acquisitions, the previous acquisition-related intangibles had been fully amortized as of the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2010.

The 28% increase in stock-based compensation expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year period was primarily related to higher expenses associated with restricted stock units, as we granted more restricted stock units at a higher fair value in the recent years. In addition, compared to the same quarter of the prior year, we had lower forfeitures in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The higher expense from restricted stock units and lower forfeitures were partially offset by lower expenses related to stock option grants as we granted no stock options in the current fiscal year.

The impact of forfeiture true up in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012 reduced stock-based compensation expense by $443 thousand and $2.0 million, respectively.
