Avago Technologies Reauthorizes Share Repurchase Program Of Up To 15 Million Shares

Avago Technologies Limited (Nasdaq:AVGO), a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the Company to repurchase up to 15 million of its ordinary shares. This replaces the share repurchase program announced by the Company on June 9, 2011, which expired at the Company’s 2012 annual general meeting on April 4, 2012.

This share repurchase program was adopted pursuant to the share purchase mandate approved by the Company's shareholders at its 2012 annual general meeting. The share purchase mandate authorizes the repurchase by the Company of up to 10 percent of its outstanding ordinary shares prior to the date of the Company’s 2013 annual general meeting.

Share repurchases, if any, will be made in the open market at such times and in such amounts as the Company deems appropriate. The Company intends to effect any share purchases in compliance with Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 10b-18 or pursuant to a trading plan adopted pursuant to Rule 10b5-1. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, market conditions and applicable legal requirements. The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any specific number of shares and may be suspended or terminated at any time without prior notice.
