|Avago Finance Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Results|
SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE – February 25, 2009 - Avago Technologies Finance Pte. Ltd. (“Avago Finance”), a leading designer, developer and global supplier of analog semiconductor devices, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2009, ended February 1, 2009.
First Quarter Fiscal 2009 GAAP Results
Revenue was $368 million, a decline of 17.7 percent when compared with the previous quarter, and down 8.5 percent from the same quarter last year. Gross margin was $143 million, or 38.9 percent of sales. This compares with a gross margin of $168 million, or 37.6 percent last quarter. Net income of $6 million compares with net income of $18 million last quarter.
Cash balances at the end of the quarter were $195 million versus $213 million at the end of last quarter. The sequential decrease is consistent with the Company’s seasonal profile and reflects the payment of fiscal year 2008 variable compensation and semi-annual interest payments.
First Quarter Fiscal 2009 Non-GAAP Results
A favorable product mix combined with tight cost control actions resulted in gross margin of $164 million, or 44.6 percent. This compares with gross margin of $184 million, or 41.2 percent last quarter.
R&D expenses were $61 million, or 16.6 percent of revenue. Last quarter, R&D expenses were $68 million. Selling, general and administrative costs declined to $41 million, or 11.1 percent of revenue, compared with $46 million in the fourth quarter.
Net income was $37 million, down from $52 million last quarter. These overall results translated into Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the indentures governing our outstanding debt securities, of $81 million, compared with $88 million in the prior quarter.
“In the last few months we have taken several actions to reduce our corporate cost structure, including announcing a headcount reduction in January,” said Hock E. Tan, president and CEO of Avago Technologies. “These actions, along with our continued focus on expanding our product portfolio into areas offering higher growth potential, helped lessen the impact the general economic slowdown is having on our financial results.”
Financial Results Conference Call
Avago Technologies Finance Pte. Ltd. will host a conference call to review its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

In addition to GAAP reporting, consistent with past practice Avago Finance reports net income or loss, as well as gross margin and operating expenses, on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP earnings information excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, share-based compensation expense, asset impairment charges, restructuring charges, acquired in-process research and development, debt extinguishment (gains) losses and the results of discontinued operations. In addition, Avago Finance also discloses Adjusted EBITDA as measured by the indentures governing the Company’s outstanding debt securities. Avago Finance believes this non-GAAP earnings information provides additional insight into the Company’s on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors in its debt securities for a more consistent basis of comparison and to emphasize the results of on-going operations. These historical non-GAAP measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP net income (loss) and a derivation of Adjusted EBITDA in accordance with our note indentures are included in the financial tables attached to this press release.Financials
