SAN JOSE, Calif., and SINGAPORE, March 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Broadcom Limited (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading semiconductor device supplier to the wired, wireless, enterprise storage, and industrial end markets, today reported financial results for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016, ended January 31, 2016, and provided guidance for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016. 

Recent Developments

Broadcom Limited is the successor to Avago Technologies Limited (“Avago”). Following Avago’s acquisition of Broadcom Corporation (“BRCM”) on February 1, 2016 (the “Acquisition”), Broadcom Limited became the ultimate parent company of Avago and BRCM. This is our first release of financial results following the Acquisition and relates solely to our predecessor, Avago, for the fiscal periods prior to the Acquisition. The guidance for future periods and other forward-looking information provided in this release relates to Broadcom Limited. Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this press release to “Broadcom,” “the Company,” “we,” “our,” “us” and similar terms are to Broadcom Limited from and after the effective time of the Acquisition and, prior to that time, to our predecessor, Avago. Broadcom’s financial results include results from Emulex Corporation (“Emulex”) starting in the third fiscal quarter of 2015 from the date of such acquisition. The financial results from businesses that have been classified as discontinued operations in the Company’s financial statements are not included in the results presented below, unless otherwise stated.

Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Business Outlook

Based on current business trends and conditions, the outlook for continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, ending May 1, 2016, including projected contributions from the combined Avago and BRCM businesses, is expected to be as follows: 
  

    GAAP   Reconciling Items   Non-GAAP
Net Revenue   $3,533M +/- $75M   $17M   $3,550 +/- $75M
Gross Margin   30.75% +/- 1%   $1,001M   59.00% +/- 1%
Operating Expenses   $2,147M   $1,315M   $832M
Interest and Other   $302M   $141M   $161M
Taxes provision (benefit)   ($120)M   ($170)M   $50M
Diluted Share Count   428M   15M   443M
  • Non-GAAP Net Revenue includes $17 million of intellectual property licensing revenue not included in GAAP revenue, as a result of the effects of purchase accounting for acquisitions;

  • Non-GAAP Gross Margin includes the effects of $17 million of intellectual property licensing revenue, and excludes the effects of $600 million of inventory step-up charges to record BRCM inventory at fair value, as part of the purchase accounting for the Acquisition, $329 million of amortization of intangible assets, $41 million of restructuring charges, $13 million of share-based compensation expense and $1 million of acquisition-related costs;

  • Non-GAAP Operating Expenses exclude $853 million of amortization of intangible assets, $237 million of restructuring charges, $182 million of share-based compensation, and $43 million of acquisition-related costs;

  • Non-GAAP Interest and Other excludes $141 million of debt modification fees and a loss on extinguishment of long-term debt; and

  • Non-GAAP tax provision excludes $170 million tax benefit representing the tax effects of the reconciling items noted above.

Capital expenditures for the second fiscal quarter are expected to be approximately $210 million. For the second fiscal quarter, depreciation is expected to be $104 million and amortization is expected to be approximately $1.2 billion. The cash balance at the end of the second fiscal quarter is expected to be in the range of $1.7 billion to $2 billion, which includes an expected repayment of $300 million of our outstanding debt in the quarter.

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, all of which are subject to revision. The above guidance excludes the estimated results of certain acquired BRCM businesses classified as assets held for sale as of February 1, 2016, which will be reported as discontinued operations. The guidance also excludes the impact of any additional 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.

Broadcom will be presenting at the Susquehanna Financial Group's Fifth Annual Semi, Storage & Tech Conference in New York City on March 10, 2016.

Those wishing to access the call should dial (866) 310-8712; International +1 (720) 634-2946. The passcode is 46478676. A replay of the call will be accessible for one week after the call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Broadcom provides investors with net revenue, net income, operating income, gross margin, operating expenses and other data on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP information includes the effect, where applicable, of purchase accounting on revenues, and excludes amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and disposal charges, acquisition-related costs, including integration costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, write-off of debt issuance costs, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, income (loss) from and gain (loss) on 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 Broadcom’s non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. Broadcom 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.
