Avago Technologies CFO Announces Plan To Leave Current Position

San Jose, Calif., April 15, 2008

Mercedes Johnson, chief financial officer of Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced she will leave her position with the Company. The Board of Directors is initiating a search for a successor. In the interim, Ms. Johnson will continue managing all her current administrative responsibilities, and after the transition to a new CFO is completed she plans to continue as a consultant to Avago.

“Enabling the transformation from what was a division within a large corporation to a highly successful standalone company has been a very gratifying experience,” said Ms. Johnson. “With Avago firmly established as an independent enterprise, I am now able to pursue other interests. During this period, I will remain fully engaged and look forward to continuing to contribute to the achievement of Avago’s long-term goals.”

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and the management team, I want to thank Mercedes for her leadership and guidance during the early years of our company,” said Hock Tan, president and CEO of Avago Technologies. “Mercedes has built an outstanding global administrative infrastructure which will serve us well as we continue forward on our path to greater success.”
