"For the third quarter, we expect product transitions to dampen wireless revenue growth, but that this will be offset by a continued strong recovery in industrial worldwide which should favorably impact consolidated gross margins."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Avago provides investors with net income, income from operations, gross margin, operating expenses and other data, 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 provided in addition to, and not as 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.
