Financial Results

Silicom's revenues for the first quarter of 2021 totalled $29.0 million, up 31% compared with $22.1 million for the first quarter of 2020.  

On a GAAP basis, net income for the quarter totalled $2.6 million, or $0.37 per diluted share ($0.38 per basic share), compared with $1.5 million, or $0.20 per share (basic and diluted), for the first quarter of 2020.

On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), net income for the quarter totalled $3.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share ($0.43 per basic share), compared with $2.3 million, or $0.31 per share (basic and diluted).

Guidance for the Second Quarter

Management projects revenues of $29 to $30 million for the second quarter of 2021. The midpoint of this range represents approximately 28% growth over the second quarter of 2020.

Comments of Management

Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO, commented, "The first quarter was a period of significant growth in revenues and net profit, driven primarily by our continued success in each of our target markets, including SD-WAN for our smart platforms and Cloud for our smart acceleration and FPGA cards.

"Our Design Win momentum in the 5G O-RAN market has been especially strong, as demonstrated both by our recent strategic wins with top-tier telcos, and by the fruitful discussions we are having with numerous telco, cloud and related OEM players of all sizes. This continues to confirm what we have been asserting for some time: that the decoupling/disaggregation trend is accelerating, that the 5G ORAN transition is building steam, and that our unique Smart Platforms and Smart Card performance-boosting products are essential solutions for some of their critical challenges."

Mr. Orbach continued, "In fact, we are being sought out by all types of 5G players - DU/equipment suppliers and 'hyper-scaler' partners as well as telcos – who are looking for solution providers able to make the complex new technologies deliver. They appreciate the fact that we continue to come through for them, providing them with the advanced architecture and strategic products required - some of which we have available already today, and many more that we will be bringing to market soon. With each new 5G-related win, our positioning within this growing market strengthens, bringing us additional market players hoping to find answers."

Mr. Orbach concluded, "As such, with growing 5G momentum and continued strength in expanding SD-WAN and Cloud markets, we are at the beginning of what we believe will become a strong multi-year growth trajectory for our company, driven by the industry's most powerful mobile infrastructure transition in a decade."

Share Repurchase Plan

The Company today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new one-year share repurchase plan, its third in the past three years. According to the plan, the Company is authorized to invest up to $15 million to repurchase its ordinary shares. During this month, the company expects to complete $30 million investment in repurchasing its ordinary shares according to two previous repurchase plans. The new plan will begin as soon as last-year's plan will be completed. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend upon a variety of factors, including price and general business and market conditions. The share repurchase plan authorizes management to repurchase ordinary shares using a variety of methods, including open market purchases, all in compliance with the rules of the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. Repurchases will be funded from available working capital. The share repurchase plan does not obligate Silicom to buy back any specific number of shares and may be suspended or terminated at any time at management's discretion.

Management notes that its cash balance provides sufficient working capital and financial flexibility to complete the Company's current share buy-back program and to carry out this new share buy-back program.
