Forward Looking Statements
This communication contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements may be typically identified by such words as may, will, should, expect, anticipate, plan, likely, believe, estimate, project, intend, and other similar expressions among others. These forward-looking statements relate to the current expectations of Avago regarding the timing of the closing of the Merger, and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. Although Avago believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any or all of such forward-looking statements may prove to be incorrect. Consequently, no forward-looking statements may be guaranteed and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by such forward looking statements will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, Avago, LSI or their respective business or operations. The foregoing should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including the risk factors included in Avagos Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 13, 2014 and its other filings with the SEC (which you may obtain for free at the SECs website at http://www.sec.gov). Avago can give no assurance that the conditions to the Merger will be satisfied or that the closing will occur on the expected timing or at all. Except as required by applicable law, Avago undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statement, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
