Avago Technologies Updates Second Quarter Fiscal 2010 Financial Guidance

SAN JOSE, Calif. & SINGAPORE — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 19, 2010 — Avago Technologies Limited (Nasdaq: AVGO), today announced that, based on preliminary quarter-to-date results, it now expects net revenue in the fiscal quarter ending May 2, 2010 to be up 11% to 13% sequentially from the first fiscal quarter of 2010. Previous guidance issued on February 24, 2010 had been for second quarter revenue to be in the range of up 6% to 9% sequentially. Avago also raised guidance with regard to gross margin and operating expenses.

The improvement in forecasted revenue for the second fiscal quarter is the result of stronger than anticipated sales in the industrial and to a lesser extent in the consumer and computer peripheral target markets. To date, our other target markets are performing consistent with prior expectations.

The improvement in gross margin guidance stems from better product mix shift toward the industrial and automotive electronics target market as well as the ramp of new proprietary OEM programs in the wireless, consumer and computing peripheral and wired communications target markets. The increase in operating expense guidance is due to an increase in revenue dependent expenses.

The updated financial outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 follows:
