Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today reported unaudited financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

"Broadcom delivered revenue that was up sequentially and year over year during the second quarter, driven by growth in the high-end smartphone, broadband access, and networking markets," said Scott McGregor, Broadcom's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "The most important news in the quarter was the May 28th announcement of the agreement for Avago Technologies Limited to acquire Broadcom.  Once closed, we expect this transaction to create the world's leading diversified communications semiconductor company with combined annual revenue of approximately $15 billion.  We expect this transaction to significantly enhance long term shareholder value and are excited about the future of the combined company."

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $2.10 billion. This represents an increase of 1.8% compared with the $2.06 billion reported for the first quarter of 2015 and an increase of 2.7% compared with the $2.04 billion reported for the second quarter of 2014. Net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the second quarter of 2015 was $386 million, or $0.63 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $209 million, or $0.34 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2015 and GAAP net loss of $1 million, or $0.00 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2014.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2015 included costs associated with the proposed acquisition by Avago of $22 million, or $0.04 per share. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2015 included impairment charges for long-lived assets of $143 million, or $0.23 per share. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2014 included charges for the impairment of long-lived assets, restructuring costs and an inventory write-down related to our decision to exit the cellular baseband business totaling $187 million, or $0.32 per share, and additional charges for the impairment of other purchased intangible assets, settlement costs and other gains of $48 million, or $.08 per share.

In addition to GAAP results, Broadcom reports adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share, referred to respectively as "non-GAAP net income" and "non-GAAP diluted net income per share." A discussion of Broadcom's use of these and other non-GAAP financial measures is set forth below. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively, and the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 appear in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading "Unaudited Schedule of Selected GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjustments."

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $445 million, or $0.72 per share (diluted), compared with non-GAAP net income of $390 million, or $0.64 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2015 and non-GAAP net income of $290 million, or $0.49 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2014.

The financial results included in this release are unaudited. The audited financial statements of the company for the year ended December 31, 2014 are included in Broadcom's Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on January 29, 2015.

In light of Broadcom's pending transaction with Avago, Broadcom will discontinue conducting conference calls with analysts and investors to discuss its financial results.

About Broadcom Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a FORTUNE 500® company, is a global leader and innovator in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Broadcom reports the following measures in accordance with GAAP and on a non-GAAP basis: (i) cost of revenue, (ii) gross profit, (iii) gross margin, (iv) net income (loss), and (v) diluted net income (loss) per share (EPS). Broadcom's non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, and non-GAAP gross margin excludes certain charges related to acquisitions and certain inventory charges relating to its decision to exit the cellular baseband business. Acquisition-related charges include the amortization of purchased intangible assets and the amortization of acquired inventory valuation step-up. In addition to the exclusions noted above, Broadcom's non-GAAP net income and diluted net income per share also exclude impairment of long-lived assets, settlement costs (gains), restructuring costs (reversals), costs associated with the proposed acquisition by Avago, charitable contributions, gain on sale of assets, gains (losses) on strategic investments, other charges (gains), tax benefits resulting from reductions in U.S. valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets due to the recording of net deferred tax liabilities for identifiable intangible assets under purchase accounting, and tax benefits resulting from the reduction of certain foreign deferred tax liabilities due to the impairment of long-lived assets. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended June 30, 2015, March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2014, respectively, and the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 appear in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading "Unaudited Schedule of Selected GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjustments." Some totals or amounts may not add or conform to prior period presentations due to rounding.

Broadcom believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. Broadcom's management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability among and between results from prior periods or forecasts and future prospects, and also facilitates comparisons with other companies in its industry, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Broadcom's management has historically used these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating operating performance, because they believe that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described above provides insight into core operating results, the ability to generate cash and underlying business trends affecting performance. Broadcom has chosen to provide this information to investors to enable them to perform additional analysis of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluate ongoing core operations. The non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

For additional information on the items excluded by Broadcom from one or more of its non-GAAP financial measures, refer to the Form 8-K regarding this release furnished today to the SEC.

These forward-looking statements are based on Broadcom's current expectations, estimates and projections about its business and industry, management's beliefs, and certain assumptions made by Broadcom, all of which are subject to change.

  • Broadcom's co-founders and their affiliates may strongly influence the outcome of matters that require the approval of Broadcom's shareholders, such as the approval of the Avago Agreement and the Transaction.

Broadcom's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K, and other SEC filings, discuss the foregoing risks as well as other important risk factors that could contribute to such differences or otherwise affect Broadcom's business, results of operations and financial condition.
