Basis of Presentation

Effective as of the close of trading on April 4, 2018, the Company completed the redomiciliation of the parent company of the Broadcom corporate group from a Singapore company to a Delaware corporation. In connection with the redomiciliation, all issued ordinary shares of Broadcom Limited  were exchanged on a one-for-one basis for common stock of Broadcom Inc. and all outstanding exchangeable limited partnership units (“LP Units”), which represented the non-controlling interest in Broadcom Cayman L.P. (the “Partnership”), were also exchanged on a one-for-one basis for common stock of Broadcom Inc. eliminating this non-controlling interest. Broadcom Inc. is the successor to Broadcom Limited for financial reporting purposes. Information provided for fiscal periods following the redomiciliation, beginning with the fiscal quarter ended May 6, 2018, relates to Broadcom Inc. and information provided for prior fiscal periods relates to Broadcom Limited. Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this press release to “Broadcom,” “the Company,” “we,” “our,” “us” and similar terms are to Broadcom Inc. from and after the effective time of the redomiciliation and, prior to that time, are to our predecessor, Broadcom Limited.

The Company’s financial results include contributions from Brocade Communication Systems’ continuing operations starting in the first fiscal quarter of 2018. The financial results from businesses that have been classified as discontinued operations in the Company’s financial statements are not included in the results presented below, unless otherwise stated.

Due to the Company’s 52/53 week reporting cycle, fiscal year 2018 includes an extra week in the first quarter, compared to fiscal year 2017.

Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Business Outlook 

Based on current business trends and conditions, the outlook for continuing operations for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, ending August 5, 2018, is expected to be as follows:   

        
   GAAP Reconciling Items Non-GAAP
 Net revenue $5,047M +/-$75M  $3M  $5,050M +/-$75M
 Gross margin 50.75% +/-1%  $795M  66.5% +/-1%
 Operating expenses $1,272M  $390M   $882M 
 Interest expense and other  $115M  -  $115M 
 Provision for income taxes  $39M   $126M   $165M 
 Diluted share count 444M 13M 457M
        
  • Non-GAAP net revenue includes $3 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 $3 million of licensing revenue, and excludes the effects of $765 million of amortization of intangible assets, $25 million of stock-based compensation expense, $1 million of restructuring charges, and $1 million of acquisition-related costs;
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $295 million of stock-based compensation expense, $65 million of amortization of intangible assets, $15 million of acquisition-related costs, and $15 million of restructuring charges;
  • Non-GAAP tax provision is $126 million higher than GAAP due to the tax effects of the projected reconciling items noted above; 
  • Non-GAAP diluted share count excludes the impact of stock-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; and
  • Diluted share count outlook does not include the impact from any stock repurchases which may occur after June 1, 2018.     

Capital expenditures for the third fiscal quarter are expected to be approximately $125 million. For the third fiscal quarter, depreciation is expected to be $135 million and amortization is expected to be approximately $835 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, divestitures and stock repurchase 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.

Quarterly Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend of $1.75 per share.

The dividend is payable on June 29, 2018 to stockholders of record at the close of business (5:00 p.m.) Eastern Time on June 20, 2018.

Financial Results Conference Call

Broadcom Inc. will host a conference call to review its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2018, ended May 6, 2018, and to provide guidance for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, 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 9191566. 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: 9191566.

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 revenue, and excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring, impairment and disposal charges, acquisition-related costs, including integration costs, purchase accounting effect on inventory, litigation settlements, debt-related costs, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on dispositions of acquisition-related assets, income (loss) from discontinued operations and non-GAAP tax reconciling adjustments. Management does not believe that these items are reflective of the Company’s underlying performance. 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 exclusion of these and other similar items from 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) Amounts represent licensing revenue not included in GAAP net revenue as a result of the effect of purchase accounting for acquisitions.   
(2) Non-GAAP adjustment for number of shares used in the diluted per share calculations excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense expected to be incurred in future periods and not yet recognized in the financial statements, which would otherwise be assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method. Non-GAAP adjustment also includes the impact of the LP Units that are anti-dilutive on a GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ended February 4, 2018.    
(3) Non-GAAP adjustment for inventory days on hand represents the impact of purchase accounting on inventory, stock-based compensation expense, and acquisition-related costs.
