($.05 better than First Call consensus)

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today reported unaudited financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

"Broadcom delivered overall results ahead of expectations in the March quarter," said Scott McGregor, Broadcom's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The upside was driven by strength in Broadband and Infrastructure, stronger-than-expected gross margins and continued operating expense discipline. In the current quarter, we expect momentum in Infrastructure and Broadband to continue, driven by service provider spending on network build outs and technology upgrades."

Net revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.98 billion. This represents a decrease of 3.9% compared with the $2.06 billion reported for the fourth quarter of 2013 and a decrease of 1.0% compared with the $2.01 billion reported for the first quarter of 2013. Net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the first quarter of 2014 was $165 million, or $0.28 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $168 million, or $0.29 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2013 and GAAP net income of $191 million, or $0.33 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013.

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 income for the fourth quarter of 2013 included restructuring costs of $17 million and settlement charges of $6 million, or $0.04 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 March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, 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 first quarter of 2014 was $318 million, or $0.51 per share (diluted), compared with non-GAAP net income of $366 million, or $0.60 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2013 and non-GAAP net income of $400 million, or $0.65 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of 2013.

Conference Call Information
As previously announced, Broadcom will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its first 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 Friday, May 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

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). Broadcom's presentation of non-GAAP cost of product revenue, non-GAAP product gross profit, and non-GAAP product gross margin excludes certain charges related to acquisitions, 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, 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 March 31, 2014, December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2013, respectively, 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.
