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, 2014.

"Broadcom performed well in the June quarter," said Scott McGregor, Broadcom's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We recently made the difficult, but prudent decision to wind down our cellular baseband business and focus on the Broadband, Connectivity and Infrastructure markets. As a result, we will be a stronger company, as gross margins, profitability and cash flows will noticeably improve, providing an opportunity to return more capital to our shareholders."

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.04 billion. This represents an increase of 2.9% compared with the $1.98 billion reported for the first quarter of 2014 and a decrease of 2.3% compared with the $2.09 billion reported for the second quarter of 2013. Net loss computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the second quarter of 2014 was $1 million, or $0.00 per share (basic and diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $165 million, or $0.28 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2014 and GAAP net loss of $251 million, or $0.43 per share (basic and diluted), for the second quarter of 2013.

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. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2014 included a net gain on sale of certain assets of $52 million and purchased intangible impairment charges of $25 million, for a total positive impact to GAAP net income per share of $0.05. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2013 included a purchased intangible impairment charge of $501 million, or $.87 per share, which was primarily related to Broadcom's acquisition of NetLogic Microsystems, Inc.

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, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, and the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 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 2014 was $406 million, or $0.65 per share (diluted), compared with non-GAAP net income of $318 million, or $0.51 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2014 and non-GAAP net income of $436 million, or $0.70 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2013.

Conference Call Information

As previously announced, Broadcom will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its second quarter 2014 financial results and current financial prospects today at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time (4:45 p.m. Eastern Time). The company will broadcast the conference call via webcast over the Internet. To listen to the webcast, or to view the financial and other statistical information required by Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulation G, please visit the Investors section of the Broadcom website at www.broadcom.com/investors. The webcast will be recorded and available for replay until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, August 23, 2014.

The financial results included in this release are unaudited. The audited financial statements of the company for the year ended December 31, 2013 are included in Broadcom's Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on January 30, 2014.

About Broadcom

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a FORTUNE 500® company, is a global leader and innovator in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications. Broadcom® products seamlessly deliver voice, video, data and multimedia connectivity in the home, office and mobile environments.

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 product revenue, (ii) product gross profit, (iii) product gross margin, (iv) research and development and selling, general and administrative expense, (v) net income (loss), (vi) weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) and (vii) diluted net income (loss) per share (EPS). Our non-GAAP cost of product revenue, non-GAAP product gross profit, and non-GAAP product gross margin excludes certain charges related to acquisitions, certain inventory charges relating to our decision to exit our cellular baseband business, stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll tax expense on certain equity awards. Acquisition-related charges include the amortization of purchased intangible assets and the amortization of acquired inventory valuation step-up. Our non-GAAP research and development and selling, general and administrative expense excludes stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll tax expense on certain equity awards. In addition to the exclusions noted above, our non-GAAP net income and diluted net income per share also exclude impairment of long-lived assets, settlement costs (gains), restructuring costs (reversals), charitable contributions, gain on sale of assets, gains (losses) on strategic investments, other charges (gains), tax benefits resulting from reductions in our 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. Stock-based compensation expense primarily includes the impact of stock options and restricted stock units issued by Broadcom. Reconciliations of our GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the three months ended June 30, 2014, March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively, and the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 appear in the financial statements portion of this release under the heading "Unaudited Schedule of Selected GAAP to Non-GAAP Adjustments." Certain amounts previously reported as licensing revenue have been reclassified to product revenue to conform to the current period presentation. Additionally, 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 our 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 our 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 we believe that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described above provides insight into our core operating results, our ability to generate cash and underlying business trends affecting our 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 our 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.

BROADCOM CORPORATION

Guidance for the Three Months Ending September 30, 2014





Three Months Ending


September 30, 2014

Total net revenue (GAAP)

~$2.10 billion to ~$2.25 billion



Product gross margin (GAAP)

52.5% +/- 75 basis points

Product gross margin (Non-GAAP)

55.0% +/- 75 basis points



Research & development and selling, general, and administrative expenses - GAAP and Non-GAAP

Down ~$40 million to ~$60 million from Q2'14

Broadcom has based the preceding guidance for the three months ending September 30, 2014 on expectations, assumptions and estimates that we believe are reasonable given our assessment of historical trends and other information reasonably available as of July 22, 2014. Our guidance consists of predictions only, however, and is subject to a wide range of known and unknown business risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control. The forecasts and projections contained in the table above should not be regarded as representations by Broadcom that the estimated results will be achieved. Projections and estimates are necessarily speculative in nature and actual results may vary materially from the guidance we provide today. The non-GAAP guidance presented above is consistent with the presentation of non-GAAP results included elsewhere herein.

The guidance set forth in the above table should be read together with the information under the caption, "Cautions Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" above, our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K, and our other SEC filings. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, including the guidance set forth herein, to reflect future events or circumstances.
