Silicom To Ramp Up Business With Another Existing Customer: New Design Win With Fast-Growing Top-Tier Provider Of Cyber Security Solutions

– Revenues From Existing & New Design Wins Expected to Reach $1M/Year in the Short Term, $3M/Year At Full Production Levels –

KFAR SAVA, Israel – February 17, 2015, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: SILC) today announced that it has secured a new Design Win from another existing customer, a top-tier network security company, for its Intelligent BYPASS Switches. Based on the customer’s projections, Silicom expects the combined sales from the new and previous Design Wins to reach approximately $1 million per year in the short term, ramping to approximately $3 million per year over time.

“This Win is another example of the growth potential within each and every one of our existing 100+ customers,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “Customers such as this security industry leader come to Silicom initially with a need to add specific new features and/or to achieve a performance boost, and later, our relationship builds and strengthens, expanding into deeper co-operations as they come to appreciate our unique IP, technology innovation, superior products, production speed and reliability, and our total dedication to service.

“In fact, our relationship with this customer has evolved from a low-quantity cards Design Win to today’s much higher level of co-operation, in which we are supplying them with both cards and Intelligent Bypass Switches. Furthermore, we continue with discussions regarding their potential use of our Coleto Creek and other products, pointing the way towards a further increase in volumes and an even stronger relationship between our companies. This is the model that we have used to build our business over the last decade and that will continue to fuel our growth in the future.”
