Pursuant to its settlement agreement with Qualcomm Incorporated, Broadcom is required to notify you that the sale, license, or other transfer of certain Broadcom products to Buyer does not convey to Buyer any intellectual property rights (including patent rights) of Qualcomm Incorporated or any of its affiliates in such Broadcom products and therefore Buyer should not assume that any such sale, license, or other transfer conveys any such rights to Buyer.

For those Broadcom products for which this sale, license, or other transfer does not convey to Buyer any intellectual property rights of Qualcomm Incorporated or any of its affiliates, neither Qualcomm Incorporated nor any of its affiliates has consented to or authorized (i) the incorporation of such Broadcom products in, or the use of such Broadcom products in combination with, any other products or components, (ii) Buyer's sale of any products incorporating such Broadcom products, or (iii) the distribution in any jurisdiction of such Broadcom products where the distribution of such Broadcom products is deemed to be a putting on the market with Qualcomm Incorporated's consent or authorization so as to effectuate an exhaustion of rights of any patents. The foregoing shall not modify or abrogate Buyer's obligations under any existing license agreement between Buyer and Qualcomm Incorporated (or any of its affiliates), including but not limited to Buyer's obligation to pay all royalties and fees specified thereunder, and shall not expand or alter Buyer's rights thereunder.
