Net revenue was $550 million, an increase of 7 percent compared with the previous quarter, and up 52 percent from the same quarter last year.

Gross margin was $263 million, or 47.8 percent of net revenue. This compares with gross margin of $233 million, or 45.2 percent of net revenue last quarter, and gross margin of $141 million, or 38.8 percent of net revenue in the same quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Avago provides investors with 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, restructuring charges and debt extinguishment (gains) losses. Management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of the Company's underlying performance. The exclusion of these and other similar items from Avago's non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. In addition, Avago also discloses Adjusted EBITDA as measured by the indenture governing our outstanding debt securities. Avago believes this non-GAAP financial 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 help them evaluate the results of the Company's on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. 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.
