KFAR SAVA, Israel -- July 8, 2013

Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that one of the world’s
largest networking security companies, which for the past two years has been
using Silicom’s 10Gbps modules in one of its appliance product lines, has now
standardized on additional Silicom’s modules for both the current and an
additional appliance product line. The Company expects that sales of these new
wins will ramp up its revenues from this customer to approximately $4 million
per year.

The customer will now use within two of its appliance product lines a variety
of modules which Silicom developed as part of its SETAC program, including
both 10Gbps and 1Gbps modules with and without bypass in copper and fiber.

“We are proud that this premier networking security leader views Silicom
products as strategic enablers, as evidenced by its design of an increasing
range of Silicom solutions into its growing portfolio of advanced security
appliances,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “When this
customer became one of our first volume users of networking modules, we were
confident that they would become volume users of additional Silicom products,
and this has now come to fruition. Furthermore, the customer is currently
considering working with Silicom on additional products, including intelligent
solutions and additional modules. We fully expect that their use of Silicom
solutions will continue to increase, representing a reliable and continuously
growing driver of our revenues in the years to come.”

Mr. Orbach added, “The fact that this customer’s usage of products has grown
and developed in line with our expectation confirms our ‘read’ of the market
and our understanding of its true needs. This insight, more than any other
advantage, continues to be the key to our success, assuring that we apply our
considerable technology and agility assets to the most vexing pain points of
some of the industry’s largest players. We believe that this ability will
enable us to continue accelerating our growth in the future.”
