Letter to LSI Employees

TO: LSI Employees

FROM: Hock Tan

SUBJECT: Avago and LSI Corporation

December 16, 2013

Dear LSI Employees,

As you have heard from Abhi, today Avago and LSI announced the exciting news that Avago will acquire LSI for $11.15 per share in cash. This combination will create a significantly larger company that will bring important benefits to the employees, customers and other stakeholders of both organizations. Together, we will be a highly diversified semiconductor leader across multiple attractive end markets.

On behalf of Avago and our worldwide employees, I am pleased to welcome you to our organization. Like LSI, Avago prioritizes a culture built on innovation, passion, and strong community. In addition to our shared cultural values, our businesses also provide a complementary product set to a worldwide customer base. As part of LSI, you have achieved many important accomplishments over a long period and I am quite excited by the possibilities of what we can accomplish in the next phase of our two companies’ joint evolution. The employees of both Avago and LSI will be integral to our future success and we look forward to investing in both our people and our technologies in order to drive profitable growth.

Even though we made this announcement today, we will continue to operate as separate companies until the acquisition closes, which we expect to happen sometime in the first half of calendar 2014. Avago’s Chief Operating Officer, Bryan Ingram, and I will be joining Abhi for an all-hands webcast meeting later this week where we will discuss this exciting news. We look forward to introducing ourselves to you and sharing our vision for the combined company.

 

Regards,

/s/ Hock Tan

President, Chief Executive Officer
