On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), net income for the quarter totalled $5.7 million, or $0.75 per diluted share ($0.76 per basic share), up 44% compared with $4.0 million, or $0.53 per diluted share ($0.54 per basic share), for the third quarter of 2016.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the period totalled $11.4 million, or $1.51 per diluted share ($1.53 per basic share), up 32% compared with $8.6 million, or $1.16 per diluted share ($1.18 per basic share), for the first nine months of 2016.

On a non-GAAP basis (as described and reconciled below), net income for the period totalled $14.8 million, or $1.96 per diluted share ($2.00 per basic share), up 27% compared with $11.7 million, or $1.58 per diluted share ($1.59 per basic share), for the first nine months of 2016.

Comments of Management

"The third quarter was another period of accelerating momentum for Silicom, demonstrating the extraordinary growth of Cloud-related markets and the unique fit of our technologies and business strategy for their evolving needs," commented Mr. Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President & CEO.

"The three announcements that we made during the quarter, including a new FPGA Design Win, a 'legacy cloud' win and a new Tier 1 server manufacturer, together with an increase in volumes, within the 'largest-ever win' that we announced in March, demonstrate that we are positioned to benefit – and indeed that we are benefiting – from multiple market trends and technologies within the Cloud. While we continue to win business for today's cloud and data center needs, the 'largest ever' win is for the next-generation Cloud (our Switch-Fabric-on-a-NIC product), and our FPGA technology is for the Future Cloud. As such, we have built resilience and agility into our business model, with probable growth paths no matter how the Cloud market eventually develops."

Mr. Orbach continued, "Most importantly, as we announced last week, our 'largest-ever win' customer estimates that, once all challenges are resolved, the new Cloud infrastructure achieves GA (General Availability) status with availability for users and deployments ramp up to their steady run rate, our revenues from this Design Win will exceed $75 million per year beginning in 2019, more than double the original estimate. With strong potential for these significant revenues and the relationships that we are developing with the customer and its Tier 1 server and infrastructure suppliers, this win is clearly a key strategic success for us."

Mr. Orbach concluded, "In parallel, while pursuing all of these Cloud and Data Center opportunities, we continue to leverage our technology and products to address other growing markets, including Cyber Security, SD-WAN and more. In short, with no end in sight to the Cloud phenomenon, continuing momentum in additional markets and growing relationships with the industry's giants, we have never been more optimistic about our prospects."
