Capital expenditures for the third quarter are expected to be approximately $125 million. For the third quarter depreciation is expected to be $50 million and amortization is expected to be $245 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 any impact from mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity (including the pending sale of LSI Corporation's Flash Components Division and Accelerated Solutions Division to Seagate Technology LLC) and any share repurchases 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.  Avago will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of its initial public offering by visiting the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square, New York and ringing the opening bell on August 6, 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures  In addition to GAAP reporting, Avago provides investors with net income, income from operations, gross margin, operating expenses and other data, on a non-GAAP basis. This non-GAAP information excludes amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, and income tax effects of non-GAAP reconciling adjustments. Management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of the Company's underlying performance. The exclusion of these and other similar items from Avago's non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. Avago 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.
