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 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. 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 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 is included in the supplemental financial data attached to this press release.
