Avago to Acquire Broadcom for $37 Billion


Avago Technologies will acquire Broadcom in a cash and stock transaction that values the combined company at $77 billion in enterprise value.

With the acquisition, which was unveiled yesterday by various media, the combined company will have a diversified communications platform, with combined annual revenues of approximately $15 billion.

Broadcom is best known for its connectivity chips, which integrate Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology and are used widely in smartphones.

"Today's announcement marks the combination of the unparalleled engineering prowess of Broadcom with Avago's heritage of technology from HP, AT&T, and LSI Logic, in a landmark transaction for the semiconductor industry," said Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Avago. "The combination of Avago and Broadcom creates a global diversified leader in wired and wireless communication semiconductors. Avago has established a strong track record of successfully integrating companies onto its platform. Together with Broadcom, we intend to bring the combined company to a level of profitability consistent with Avago's long-term target model."

"This transaction benefits all of Broadcom's key stakeholders," remarked Scott McGregor, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadcom. "Our customers will gain access to a greater breadth of technology and product capability. For our shareholders, the transaction provides both compelling up-front value as well as the opportunity to participate in the future upside of the combined business."

Following completion of the transaction, Mr. Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Avago, will continue to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the combined company, which will adopt the name Broadcom Limited. Dr. Samueli will join the board of the combined company as will another director from Broadcom.

Closing of the transaction is expected by the end of the first calendar quarter of 2016.
