"We believe inventory replenishments across all end markets coupled with seasonality in the wireless and consumer markets will continue to drive growth for the rest of the fiscal year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Avago 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 also discloses Adjusted EBITDA as measured by the indentures governing our outstanding debt securities. Avago 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 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.

EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to give effect to certain items that are required in calculating covenant compliance under our senior and senior subordinated notes as well as under our senior secured credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by subtracting from or adding to EBITDA items of income or expense described above. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent net income, as that term is defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance.
Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management or discretionary use as such measures do not consider certain cash requirements such as capital expenditures, tax payments and debt service requirements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented herein are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures.
