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

"Broadcom delivered third quarter revenue ahead of consensus and above the midpoint of the guided range," said Scott McGregor, Broadcom's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "These solid results are a testament to the company's operational excellence and leadership in the markets we serve."

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2015 was $2.19 billion. This represents an increase of 4.3% compared with the $2.10 billion reported for the second quarter of 2015 and a decrease of 3.2% compared with the $2.26 billion reported for the third quarter of 2014. Net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2015 was $429 million, or $0.69 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $386 million, or $0.63 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2015 and GAAP net income of $98 million, or $0.16 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of 2014. GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2014 included charges for restructuring costs related to Broadcom's decision to exit the cellular baseband business totaling $114 million, or $0.19 per share, and additional charges for the impairment of purchased intangible assets of $200 million, or $0.33 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 September 30, 2015, June 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, respectively, and the nine months ended September 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 third quarter of 2015 was $477 million, or $0.77 per share (diluted), compared with non-GAAP net income of $445 million, or $0.72 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of 2015 and non-GAAP net income of $461 million, or $0.76 per share (diluted), for the third 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 has discontinued conducting conference calls with analysts and investors to discuss its financial results.

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, and (v) diluted net income 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 September 30, 2015, June 30, 2015 and September 30, 2014, and the nine months ended September 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.
