Broadcom Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results and Quarterly Dividend

10 December 2018

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadcom Inc. (Nasdaq: AVGO), a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, today reported financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended November 4, 2018, and provided guidance for its fiscal year 2019. The Company completed its acquisition of CA Technologies on November 5, 2018. The financial results provided below do not include any contribution from CA Technologies.

"Strong operating performance in the fiscal fourth quarter caps a year of solid results that continues to reinforce the sustainability of our business model. Revenues grew 18% to nearly $21 billion on the back of strong demand for our networking, enterprise storage, wireless and industrial products while operating margin continued to progressively expand to 50%," said Hock Tan, President and CEO of Broadcom Inc. "Looking forward to fiscal year 2019, we expect another year of double digit revenue growth. Sustained demand within our semiconductor segment will be augmented by the newly acquired mainframe and enterprise software businesses to our infrastructure software segment. We also expect operating margin to hit another record in fiscal year 2019 driven by improved operating leverage."

"Free cash flow from operations grew 50% in fiscal year 2018 to $8.2 billion. As a result, we are raising our target dividend by 51 percent to $2.65 per share per quarter for fiscal year 2019," said Tom Krause, CFO of Broadcom Inc. "Looking ahead for the year, we expect sustained revenue growth and improving operating leverage to accelerate cash generation from operations. Our capital allocation strategy remains unchanged for fiscal year 2019. We plan to return 50% of our prior fiscal year free cash flows to stockholders in the form of dividends and use the balance of our free cash flows to buy back stock and support additional acquisitions, while remaining focused on maintaining our investment grade credit rating."

  • Non-GAAP operating margin excludes $4,700 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, $2,100 million of stock-based compensation expense, $570 million of restructuring charges, and $210 million of acquisition-related costs; and
  • Non-GAAP tax provision is 2% lower than GAAP due to the tax effects of the projected reconciling items noted above.

Capital expenditures for the fiscal year are expected to be approximately $550 million. For the fiscal year, depreciation is expected to be $600 million and amortization is expected to be approximately $4,700 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 excludes the impact of any mergers, acquisitions, divestiture and stock repurchase activity that may occur during fiscal year 2019. 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.

Basis of Presentation

Broadcom Inc. is the successor to Broadcom Limited for financial reporting purposes effective as of the close of trading on April 4, 2018. Information provided for fiscal periods beginning with the fiscal quarter ended May 6, 2018, relates to Broadcom Inc. and 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 included an extra week in the first quarter, compared to fiscal year 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to GAAP reporting, Broadcom provides investors with net revenue, net income, operating income, gross margin, operating expenses, cash flow 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, impairment on investment, debt-related costs, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, gain (loss) on 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. Free cash flow measures have limitations as they omit certain components of the overall cash flow statement and do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Investors should not consider presentation of free cash flow measures as implying that stockholders have any right to such cash. Broadcom's free cash flow may not be calculated in a manner comparable to similarly named measures used by other companies.

Broadcom believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into the Company's on-going performance. Therefore, Broadcom provides 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) In connection with the redomiciliation to the United States on April 4, 2018, or the Redomiciliation, all outstanding exchangeable limited partnership units, or LP Units, in Broadcom Cayman L.P. were exchanged for common stock of Broadcom on a one-for-one basis and the noncontrolling interest, or NCI, was eliminated. Net income attributable to NCI prior to the Redomiciliation represents approximately 5% of net income attributable to LP Units.

(2) For the fiscal year ended November 4, 2018 and for each fiscal year 2017 period presented, diluted income per share excluded the potentially dilutive effect of the exchange of LP Units as their effect was antidilutive. There were no LP Units outstanding during the fiscal quarters ended November 4, 2018 and August 5, 2018 due to the Redomiciliation.

(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 LP Units that are anti-dilutive on a GAAP basis for the fiscal year ended November 4, 2018 and for each fiscal year 2017 period presented.  

(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.
