Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Business Outlook

Based on current business trends and conditions, the outlook for continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, ending October 30, 2016, is expected to be as follows:   

       
  GAAP Reconciling Items Non-GAAP
Net revenue \\$4,090M +/- \\$75M \\$10M \\$4,100M +/- \\$75M
Gross margin 52.25% +/- 1% \\$341M 60.50% +/- 1%
Operating expenses \\$1,450M \\$642M \\$808M
Interest expense and other \\$153M \\$49M \\$104M
Provision for (benefit from) income taxes (\\$295)M (\\$366)M \\$71M
Diluted share count 434M 14M 448M
       
  • Non-GAAP net revenue includes \\$10 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 \\$10 million of licensing revenue, and excludes the effects of \\$86 million of inventory step-up charges to record BRCM inventory at fair value, as part of the purchase accounting for the Acquisition, \\$224 million of amortization of intangible assets, \\$14 million of share-based compensation expense, and \\$7 million of restructuring charges;
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude \\$356 million of amortization of intangible assets, \\$199 million of share-based compensation expense, \\$46 million of restructuring charges, and \\$41 million of acquisition-related costs;
  • Non-GAAP interest expense and other excludes \\$49 million of losses on extinguishment of long-term debt;
  • Non-GAAP tax provision excludes \\$366 million tax benefit representing the tax effects of the 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 Companys financial statements, which would otherwise be assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method.                                                                                   

Capital expenditures for the fourth fiscal quarter are expected to be approximately \\$325 million. For the fourth fiscal quarter, depreciation is expected to be \\$114 million and amortization is expected to be approximately \\$580 million.

The guidance provided above is only an estimate of what the Company believes is realizable as of the date of this release. Among other things, this guidance is based on an initial estimate of purchase accounting adjustments and allocations, all of which are subject to revision. 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 Deutsche Bank 2016 Technology Conference in Las Vegas, on September 14, 2016.

Interim Dividend

The Companys Board of Directors has approved a quarterly, interim cash dividend of \\$0.51 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 \\$0.51 per REU.

The dividend and the distribution are both payable on September 30, 2016 to shareholders or unitholders of record, as applicable, at the close of business (5:00 p.m.) Eastern Time on September 19, 2016.

Financial Results Conference Call

Those wishing to access the call should dial (866) 310-8712; International +1 (720) 634-2946. The passcode is 62126584. 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: 62126584.

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 intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring, impairment and disposal charges, acquisition-related costs, including integration costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, write-off of debt issuance costs, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, 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 Companys 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 Companys operations, and benchmarking performance externally against the Companys competitors. The presentation of these and other similar items in Broadcoms 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 Companys 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 Companys 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.
