Before making any voting decision with respect to the proposed transaction, stockholders of NetLogic Microsystems are urged to read the proxy statement and other relevant materials because these materials will contain important information about the proposed transaction. The proxy statement and other relevant materials, and any other documents to be filed by NetLogic Microsystems with the SEC, may be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or from NetLogic Microsystems’ website at www.netlogicmicro.com or by contacting NetLogic Microsystems Investor Relations at: investors@netlogicmicro.com . Investors and security holders of NetLogic Microsystems are urged to read the proxy statement and the other relevant materials when they become available before making any voting or investment decision with respect to the proposed merger because they will contain important information about the merger and the parties to the merger.

NetLogic Microsystems and Broadcom and each of their respective executive officers, directors and other members of their management and employees, under SEC rules, may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from NetLogic Microsystems’ stockholders in favor of the proposed transaction.
