XILINX INVESTIGATION INITIATED BY FORMER LOUISIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates Xilinx Inc. Following Disclosure of Disappointing Results and Analysts Downgrades
NEW ORLEANS --(Business Wire)--
Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a
partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces
that KSF has commenced an investigation into Xilinx (News - Alert) Inc. (NMS: XLNX).
On July 22, 2014, Xilinx reported lower than expected first quarter
fiscal 2015 revenue, reporting sales of only $613 million, below
analysts' estimates of $631 million. The Company also forecast that its
sales could drop as much as 4% in the second quarter. These results
contradict what Company representatives stated in presentations in May
2014. For example, on May 6, 2014, CFO Jon Olson made a presentation at
the Robert W. Baird & Co. Inc. Growth Stock Conference, stating that,
"we do see growth in the 8% to 12% topline growth range over the next
couple of years." On May 20, 2014, Olson made a presentation at the
JPMorgan Global Technology (News - Alert), Media and Telecom Conference, stating that,
"we are expecting rowth in comms overall, but we also are expecting
very strong growth out of industrial, scientific, medical, and aerospace
and defense, as well as automotive next year" and that "[w]e would
expect all geographies for us to grow year on year."
On this news, Xilinx was downgraded by multiple analysts and the price
of its shares plummeted by over 14%.
KSF's investigation is focusing on whether Xilinx and/or its officers
and directors violated state or federal securities laws.
