AMD and Xilinx Provide Update Regarding Expected Timing of Acquisition Close

SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today released the fol­lo­wing state­ment rela­ted to the sta­tus of glo­bal regu­la­to­ry appr­ovals for AMD’s pro­po­sed acqui­si­ti­on of Xilinx.

We con­ti­nue making good pro­gress on the requi­red regu­la­to­ry appr­ovals to clo­se our tran­sac­tion. While we had pre­vious­ly expec­ted that we would secu­re all appr­ovals by the end of 2021, we have not yet com­ple­ted the pro­cess and we now expect the tran­sac­tion to clo­se in the first quar­ter of 2022. Our con­ver­sa­ti­ons with regu­la­tors con­ti­nue to pro­gress pro­duc­tively, and we expect to secu­re all requi­red approvals.”

The­re are no addi­tio­nal chan­ges to the pre­vious­ly announ­ced terms or plans regar­ding the tran­sac­tion and the com­pa­nies con­ti­nue to look for­ward to the pro­po­sed com­bi­na­ti­on crea­ting the industry’s high-per­for­mance and adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting leader.

Neither AMD nor Xilinx assu­mes, and each her­eby dis­claims, any obli­ga­ti­on to update for­ward-loo­king state­ments, except as may be requi­red by law.
