Directors has declared a cash dividend in the amount of US $0.55 per share in
respect of its 2012 results, representing an aggregate distribution of
approximately US $3.9 million. The dividend will be payable on April 17, 2013
to all shareholders of record at the close of the NASDAQ Global Market on

“Following our January 2013 decision to implement a dividend policy, and given
our cash balance of nearly $57 million and visibility for continued
accelerated growth, we are very pleased to share our success more directly
with our shareholders,” stated Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “We
believe that the perfect fit between our strategy and products on the one
hand, and the critical short- and long-term needs of the Networking and Data
Infrastructure Industry on the other, will continue to drive our momentum,
even beyond our 2012 results, which broke all previous records across all
parameters. As a result, we are now positioned to rise to a whole new level,
both in our performance and in the value we provide to our shareholders.”
