First Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Business Outlook

Based on current business trends and conditions, the outlook for continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, ending February 1, 2015, is expected to be as follows: 

  GAAP Reconciling Items Non-GAAP
Sequential Change in Net Revenue Flat to up 4% $21M Flat to up 4%
Gross Margin 48% plus/minus 1% $146M 57.5% plus/minus 1%
Operating Expenses $432M $131M $301M
Interest and Other $56M   $56M
Taxes $34M $4M $38M
Diluted Share Count 276M 7M 283M

Reconciling items include:

  • Non-GAAP Revenue includes $21 million of LSI intellectual property licensing revenue, not included in GAAP revenue as a result of the effects of purchase accounting for the LSI acquisition;   
  • Non-GAAP Gross Margin includes the effects of $21 million of LSI intellectual property licensing revenue and excludes the effects of $113 million of amortization of intangible assets, $6 million of share-based compensation expense, $2 million of restructuring charges, and $4 million of inventory step-up charges to record PLX inventory at fair value, as part of the purchase accounting for the PLX Technology acquisition;
  • Non-GAAP Operating Expenses exclude $59 million of amortization of intangible assets, $45 million of share-based compensation, $11 million of restructuring charges, and $16 million of acquisition-related costs; and
  • $4 million provision at the Taxes line, which represents the tax effects of the reconciling items noted above.

Capital expenditures for full fiscal year 2015 are expected to be approximately $600 million, of which approximately $200 million is expected to occur in the first quarter. For the first quarter depreciation is expected to be $52 million and amortization is expected to be $172 million.

The guidance provided above is only an estimate of what the Company believes is realizable as of the date of this release. Among other things, this guidance is based on an initial estimate of purchase accounting adjustments and allocations for the PLX acquisition, all of which are subject to revision. The guidance also excludes any impact from any further mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity that may occur during the quarter. Actual results will vary from the guidance and the variations may be material. The Company undertakes no intent or obligation to publicly update or revise any of these projections, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Avago will be presenting at the Barclays Global Technology Conference in San Francisco on December 10, 2014. Avago will also be meeting with investors on January 6 and January 7, 2015, at the 2015 International CES and presenting at the J.P. Morgan Tech Forum CES 2015 and the Citi Internet, Media and Telecommunication Tech Forum CES 2015 in Las Vegas.

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 includes the effect of purchase accounting on revenues, excludes amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, loss from discontinued operations and income tax effects of non-GAAP reconciling adjustments. Management does not believe that these items are reflective of the Company's underlying performance. The presentation of these and other similar items in Avago's non-GAAP financial results 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.
