On a GAAP basis, net income for the year totalled $5.7 million, or $0.80 per share (basic and diluted), compared with $10.2 million, or $1.35 per diluted share ($1.36 per basic share), for 2019.

Guidance for the First Quarter

While remaining cautious due to the continued uncertainty of the macro environment, Management projects revenues of $28 to $29 million for the first quarter of 2021. The midpoint of this range represents approximately 30% growth over the first quarter of 2020.

Comments of Management

Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to report another strong quarter, with above-guidance revenues driven primarily by our Smart Platforms and Smart Cards, the focus of our strategy for capitalizing on the industry's powerful Decoupling and Disaggregation trends. These are the trends we foresaw already a few years ago, and for which we have been building our strategy, capabilities and new product lines: advanced offerings that leverage our unique integrated expertise in networking, acceleration, FPGAs and platforms."

Mr. Orbach continued, "Today, the Decoupling and Disaggregation trends have become a reality in many market segments, including O-RAN for mobile 5G infrastructure deployments, and we believe they will grow according to a strong, multi-year trajectory. These trends were the drivers behind our most recent 4G/5G related strategic announcements, our sale of SD-WAN and NFV Smart Platforms to a variety of customers, and our sale of Smart Cards to a significant Cloud player. In parallel, with more and more telcos choosing the disaggregated/decoupled O-RAN approach for their new 4G/5G infrastructure deployments, there has been an explosion of interest and demand for our differentiated solutions, which are recognized as key enablers. Both our recent FEC card win with a major telco and the Distributed Unit field trial that we are carrying out with another major telco confirm the soundness of our strategy and the huge future potential of this emerging market." 

Mr. Orbach concluded, "We are extremely well positioned to take advantage of these opportunities. With a growing range of best-of-breed products, close cooperations with Intel and leading software vendors, strong relationships with key industry players and excellent initial traction, we feel confident that the Cloud, the Telco market for SD-WAN and NFV solutions, and the overall O-RAN-based mobile infrastructure market will be driving our growth throughout 2021 and far beyond."
