  Silicom Secures 1st Coleto Creek Win from World-Leading Networking Customer  – Combined With Another New Win Secured With the Customer, Client’s Orders To            Ramp Up To ~$1.5M Per Year, Triple Their Current Level –  Business Wire  KFAR SAVA, Israel -- July 29, 2014  Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that it has achieved its first design win for the recently-released Silicom Coleto Creek encryption and compression card. The design win is from one of Silicom’s existing customers, a market-leading provider of smart network solutions, who will use Silicom’s Coleto Creek and Silicom Quad-Port 10G Networking cards in one of its next-generation network appliances.  The customer’s decision to use the Coleto Creek card is part of its strategic decision to move towards an x86 Intel Architecture.  Sales related to these design wins are expected to triple the revenues from this customer to approximately $1.5 million per year. In parallel, discussions continue with another of the customer’s teams regarding the use of a higher-end Coleto Creek card in an additional appliance.  “We are very pleased to have achieved our first design win for our Coleto Creek card, a product line borne from our strategic ‘bet’ on Intel’s architecture,” commented Mr. Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “The win demonstrates the power of our strategy of building solutions that enhance Intel’s basic technology, enabling us to benefit from customers that select Intel over competing architectures.  “In addition, both the Coleto Creek win and the Quad Port 10G win demonstrate the continued success of the business model that has driven our growth in the past: loyal customers that turn to us again and again to solve critical performance problems in cutting-edge new products, and that recommend us to other groups. As a result, we enjoy growing sales over time from many of our existing customers – and we now have over 100 of them, including many industry leaders. As such, we feel confident and optimistic about our long-term prospects, and continue working to build the Company.”                                        ##  About Silicom  Silicom Ltd. is an industry-leading provider of high-performance networking and data infrastructure solutions.
