Fortune Magazine has published its “Future 50” list for 2019, ranking the top global companies with the best prospects for long-term growth—and we made the list!
Ranked at #17, Xilinx is the highest-ranked semiconductor company, coming in well ahead of semiconductor competitors such as Nvidia (#27). We can’t help but be flattered and honored that we also ranked ahead of tech industry giants such as Google (#18), Amazon (#31), and Facebook (#49).
Fortune, together with the management consulting firm BCG, created the Future 50, a system that analyzes dozens of factors to identify companies with the strongest long-term growth potential. BCG examined more than 1,000 publicly traded companies with at least $20 billion in market value or $10 billion in revenue in the 12 months through the end of 2018. The ratings focused on factors illustrating a company’s overall vitality to produce value and growth for investors even in difficult markets, considering more than just past performances for its index, but also things like the strength of patent portfolios, people, and strategic thinking—as well as demonstrating a path to profitability.

We couldn’t agree more. The high ranking underscores the gaining momentum for adaptive computing across all markets as well as the phenomenal progress of our platform transformation and strategy to build out the Alveo and ISV ecosystem. The recent launch of the Vitis Unified Software Platform is also a key milestone that will empower a broad new range of developers – including software engineers and AI scientists – to take advantage of the power of our programmable, adaptable solutions.
It’s extremely gratifying to see that our strategy, hard work and accelerating marketing momentum are being recognized by the outside world. The future is bright!
