$15M Award to Silicom for Major Government Project

 

– Full Delivery Expected Within the Next 12 Months –

 

KFAR SAVA, Israel — April 08, 2020 – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that a major systems integrator has placed approximately $15 million in purchase orders for 10G, 40G and 100G Intelligent Bypass Units to be delivered during the next 12 months. It will use the units in a massive infrastructure project for the government of one of the world’s top economies. The integrator has indicated that Silicom should expect additional projects of a similar scope for this government over time.

 

The integrator selected Silicom after a long process begun in mid-2019 that concluded with a thorough evaluation demonstrating the superiority of Silicom’s technology and products.

 

“This is a significant win for us on several levels,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s CEO. “First of all, its sheer volume will obviously make a significant contribution to our business. In addition, the potentially large volumes projected for this customer demonstrate that our traditional products continue to offer a very good base for our future growth.

 

“Equally important is the fact that this major integrator – a significant player in this massive government’s infrastructure market – is now standardizing on our technology and products. This increases the likelihood that we will become its de-facto standard as they continue rolling out their next-generation networks and data centers, both for this product and for our Edge and FPGA products. As such, this new relationship offers us significant strategic potential.”
