IRVINE, Calif. -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global leader in semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, today announced that veteran financial executive Eric K. Brandt will join the company later this month as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Mr. Brandt, a former chief financial officer of Allergan, Inc. and most recently chief executive officer of Avanir Pharmaceuticals, was selected after an extensive global search following the retirement last September of former CFO William J. Ruehle. Since that time, Bruce E. Kiddoo, Broadcom's Vice President and Corporate Controller, has served as Acting Chief Financial Officer.

"Eric Brandt brings a unique perspective to the senior financial position at Broadcom, having served both as an award-winning CFO of multibillion dollar specialty pharmaceutical leader Allergan and as CEO of an entrepreneurial enterprise like Avanir," said Scott A. McGregor, Broadcom's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Eric possesses extensive experience in research and development and intellectual property-intensive industries -- a perfect complement to our own engineering-driven organization. We look forward to leveraging his unique background to help shape the long-term strategic direction of Broadcom and to lead our strong financial team."
