SAN JOSE, Calif., March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadcom Inc. (Nasdaq: AVGO), a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2019, ended February 3, 2019, and announced a quarterly dividend.

"We had a good start to 2019 as we continued to execute on our proven business model. Strong results in our networking business supported our semiconductor solutions segment, despite the anticipated sharp decline in wireless. Additionally, our infrastructure software segment performed extremely well as we made good progress with the CA business integration into Broadcom," said Hock Tan, President and CEO of Broadcom Inc. "Similar to our peers, we see a slowdown in China impacting demand. However, much of this was factored into our original guidance and we are maintaining our full year fiscal 2019 business outlook."

"We generated over $2 billion in free cash flow in the quarter, which represented 39% growth on a year on year basis," said Tom Krause, CFO of Broadcom Inc. "Consistent with our capital return plan, we returned $4.6 billion to stockholders in the quarter including $1.1 billion of cash dividends and $3.5 billion of share repurchases and eliminations. We remain focused on returning approximately $12 billion to stockholders in fiscal 2019 via a combination of cash dividends and stock buy backs and eliminations, while maintaining our investment grade credit rating."
