Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Business Outlook

Based on current business trends and conditions, the outlook for continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, ending July 30, 2017, is expected to be as follows:

GAAP Reconciling Items Non-GAAP
Net revenue $4,445M +/- $75M $5M $4,450M +/- $75M
Gross margin 48.0% +/- 1% $680M 63.0% +/- 1%
Operating expenses $1,497M $710M $787M
Interest expense and other $100M $100M
Provision for income taxes $78M $8M $86M
Diluted share count 444M 12M 456M

  • Non-GAAP net revenue includes $5 million of 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 $5 million of licensing revenue, and excludes the effects of $653 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, $18 million of share-based compensation expense, $3 million of charges related to inventory step-up to fair value and $1 million of restructuring charges;

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $441 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, $237 million of share-based compensation expense, $25 million of acquisition-related costs, and $7 million of restructuring charges;

  • Non-GAAP tax provision is $8 million higher than GAAP due to the tax effects of the projected reconciling items noted above; and

  • Non-GAAP diluted share count excludes the impact of share-based compensation expense expected to be incurred in future periods and not yet recognized in the Company’s financial statements, which would otherwise be assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.

For the third fiscal quarter, capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $240 million and depreciation is expected to be $118 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 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 meeting investors at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2017 Global Technology Conference in San Francisco, on June 6, 2017.

Interim Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved a quarterly, interim cash dividend of $1.02 per ordinary share. A corresponding distribution will also be paid by the Partnership, of which the Company is the General Partner, to holders of REUs, in the amount of $1.02 per REU.

The dividend and the distribution are both payable on June 30, 2017 to shareholders or unitholders of record, as applicable, at the close of business (5:00 p.m.) Eastern Time on June 19, 2017.

Financial Results Conference Call

Broadcom Limited will host a conference call to review its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017, ended April 30, 2017, and to provide guidance for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Those wishing to access the call should dial (866) 310-8712; International +1 (720) 634-2946. The passcode is 15898722. A replay of the call will be accessible for one week after the call. To access the replay dial (855) 859-2056; International +1 (404) 537-3406; and reference the passcode: 15898722. A webcast of the conference call will also be available in the “Investors” section of Broadcom’s website at www.broadcom.com.

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 acquisition-related intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring, impairment and disposal charges, acquisition-related costs, including integration costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, debt-related costs, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on disposition of assets, income (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. However, internally, these non-GAAP measures are significant measures used by management for purposes of evaluating the core operating performance of the Company, establishing internal budgets, calculating return on investment for development programs and growth initiatives, comparing performance with internal forecasts and targeted business models, strategic planning, evaluating and valuing potential acquisition candidates and how their operations compare to the Company’s operations, and benchmarking performance externally against the Company’s competitors. 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.

(1) For the fiscal quarters ended April 30, 2017, January 29, 2017 and May 1, 2016, basic income (loss) per share numerators are reduced by the amount of net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest, which is approximately 5.2%, 5.4% and 5.5% of net income (loss) for the fiscal quarters ended April 30, 2017, January 29, 2017 and May 1, 2016, respectively.
