Other than as described below, or elsewhere in this proxy statement, since January 1, 2005 there has not been any transaction or series of related transactions to which Broadcom was or is a party involving an amount in excess of $60,000 and in which any director, executive officer, holder of more than five percent (5%) of any class of Broadcom’s voting securities, or any member of the immediate family of any of the foregoing persons, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

Arrowhead Pond – Mighty Ducks Transaction. In October 2005 Broadcom purchased a corporate sponsorship package from the Arrowhead Pond and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim hockey team, both of which are under the control of Henry Samueli, the company’s co-founder, Chairman of the Board and Chief Technical Officer. The sponsorship package provided Broadcom with advertising space on two dasher boards in the ice arena during the entire 2005-2006 hockey season. We received a discount of approximately 36% on the regular price of advertising space at the ice arena, and, as a result, paid approximately $90,000 for such space. In addition we received a complimentary ticket package that provided us with approximately 10,000 tickets to selected Mighty Ducks games for distribution to employees and certain charities selected by Broadcom’s Donations Committee. Broadcom employees were also given the opportunity to purchase available seats to Mighty Ducks games at a discounted price. The transaction was approved by the Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee of the Board. The Committee members unanimously agreed with disinterested members of senior management that the sponsorship package affords Broadcom an appropriate opportunity to increase its name and brand recognition in the Southern California community as well as the opportunity to reward employee contributions and build employee morale.

Indemnification Agreements with Directors and Officers. In addition to the indemnification provisions contained in our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, we have entered into indemnification agreements with each of our directors and officers. These agreements require Broadcom, among other things, to indemnify each director or officer against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and settlements (collectively, “Liabilities”) paid by such individual in connection with any action, suit or proceeding arising out of the individual’s status or service as a director or officer (other than Liabilities arising from willful misconduct or conduct that is knowingly fraudulent or deliberately dishonest) and to advance expenses incurred by the individual in connection with any proceeding against the individual with respect to which he or she may be entitled to indemnification by Broadcom. Pursuant to these agreements we advanced expenses and indemnified certain of our current and former directors and officers for certain Liabilities incurred in connection with or related to the defense and settlement of the In re Broadcom Corp. Securities Litigation as well as Arenson, et al. v. Broadcom Corp., et al.
