Comments of Management
 
Commenting on the results, Shaike Orbach, President and CEO, said, “We are very pleased to report a 49% year-over-year rise in revenues and a 57% increase in net income for the first quarter, strong results that demonstrate the continued growth-driving power of our 90+ top-tier customers, our expanding portfolio of unique, need-driven products, and our focus on some of the industry’s strongest markets.
 
“We believe that we will be able to compound this accelerated growth in the future - both through the continued success and expansion of our existing businesses, and through new growth engines, as demonstrated by the announcements made during the past several months. We are extremely excited to have launched our first product within Silicom’s new Intelligent Nano Time-Stamping NIC product line, a breakthrough offering whose sales we believe will ramp up to $15-$20 million within just a few years. We are also proud that one of the world’s largest networking companies - one of our first volume SETAC customers - has now also become a customer for our SETAC modules, the more significant, higher-priced components of the SETAC solution, a development which we expect to gradually boost this customer’s orders by several million dollars per year.”
 
 
 

 
 
Mr. Orbach continued, “As a concrete demonstration of our confidence, and in light of our significant cash reserves, we have recently paid out our first dividend as a channel for sharing our success more directly with our shareholders. We are proud that we have been able to deliver on all the promises that we have made over the past several years, confirming our ‘read’ of the market, our considerable technology advantage, our superb customer service and our exceptional customer relationships. With active customer relationships with so many of the industry’s top players, a growing portfolio of needed products for virtually unlimited markets and a track record of making good on our promises, we are excited about our potential and continue working to accelerate our growth for the benefit of our shareholders.”
