  • Net revenue up 13 percent sequentially to $515 million
  • GAAP gross margin increased to 45.2 percent; Non-GAAP gross margin up to 48.2 percent

SAN JOSE, Calif. & SINGAPORE, May 26, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Avago Technologies Limited (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of analog semiconductor devices with a focus on III-V based products, today reported financial results for its second quarter fiscal year 2010, ended May 2, 2010, and provided guidance for the third quarter fiscal year 2010.

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 GAAP Results

Net revenue was $515 million, an increase of 13 percent compared with the previous quarter, and up 58 percent from the same quarter last year.

Gross margin was $233 million, or 45.2 percent of net revenue. This compares with gross margin of $194 million, or 42.5 percent of net revenue last quarter, and gross margin of $98 million, or 30.2 percent of net revenue in the same quarter last year.

Second quarter net income was $90 million, or $0.37 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $38 million, or $0.16 per diluted share last quarter, and a net loss of $31 million, or ($0.14) per diluted share in the same quarter last year.

The Company's cash balance at the end of the second quarter was $256 million, compared to $144 million at the end of the prior quarter. The increase in cash over the quarter is primarily due to $115 million of cash generated from operations.

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Non-GAAP Results

Gross margin was $248 million, or 48.2 percent of net revenue. This compares with gross margin of $209 million, or 45.8 percent of net revenue last quarter, and gross margin of $115 million, or 35.4 percent of net revenue in the same quarter last year.

Net income was $117 million, or $0.47 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $88 million, or $0.36 per diluted share last quarter, and a net loss of $2 million, or ($0.01) per diluted share in the same quarter last 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 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, selling shareholder expenses, and the results of discontinued operations. In addition, Avago also discloses Adjusted EBITDA as measured by the indenture 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 financial data and a derivation of Adjusted EBITDA are included in the supplemental financial data 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 subordinated notes indenture 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 used by other companies.
