The Company expects to record restructuring-related charges of approximately $18-22 million in connection with the reorganization. These one-time pre-tax charges are comprised of approximately $16-19 million of severance pay expenses, which will be recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 and approximately $2-3 million of facility and other associated costs, a portion of which will be recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

The restructuring charges will adversely impact the Company's first quarter's operating expenses, which were forecasted to be approximately flat sequentially for the June ending quarter. The Company will report its fiscal first quarter results after market close on July 16, 2008. A real-time audio broadcast of the teleconference will be provided at http://www.investor.xilinx.com.
