GAAP Reconciling Items Non-GAAP
Net Revenue $1,768M +/- $25M $12M $1,780 +/- $25M

  • Non-GAAP Operating Expenses exclude $53 million of amortization of intangible assets, $58 million of share-based compensation, $45 million of acquisition-related costs and $2 million of restructuring charges;
  • Non-GAAP Interest and Other excludes $47 million of ticking fees related to debt commitments for the pending Broadcom acquisition; and
  • $10 million provision at the Taxes line represents the tax effects of the reconciling items noted above.


Capital expenditures for the first fiscal quarter are expected to be approximately $140 million, which include the purchase of a fabrication facility in Eugene, Oregon for approximately $21 million. For the first fiscal quarter, depreciation is expected to be $61 million and amortization is expected to be $183 million.

The guidance provided above is only an estimate of what the Company believes is realizable as of the date of this release. The guidance also excludes any impact from any 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 meeting investors at the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference on December 9, 2015 in San Francisco.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Avago 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 of purchase accounting on revenues, and excludes amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring and asset impairment charges, acquisition-related costs, including integration costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, write-off of debt issuance costs, gain 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 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.
