Broadcom’s Adjusted Q3 Profit and Revenue Beat View, but Q4 Revenue Forecast Falls Short (BRCM)

Share |

Wireless chipmaker Broadcom Corporation ( BRCM ) on Wednesday posted solid third quarter earnings results, but its fourth quarter outlook wasn't as good as analysts expected.

The Irvine, CA-based company reported third quarter net income of $220 million, or 38 cents per share, compared with $270 million, or 48 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding one-time items, adjusted profit was 79 cents per share.

Revenue rose 8.7% from last year to $2.13 billion.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller profit of 76 cents, on lower revenue of $2.09 billion.

Looking ahead, BRCM forecast fourth quarter revenue to range from $1.95 billion to $2.1 billion, which would miss Wall Street's view of $2.11 billion.

Broadcom shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Wednesday.
