As a result of sluggish business expenditure and intense competition, chipmaker Broadcom (AVGO.O) forecasted yearly revenue that was lower than what Wall Street had anticipated on Thursday. This was a reflection of the company’s lackluster acquisition of VMware.

Extended trading resulted in a decline of more than one percent for the shares of Broadcom, which is headquartered in San Jose, California, and has just completed its acquisition of the cloud computing company.

When VMware’s contribution is considered, Broadcom anticipates revenue of around $50.0 billion for the fiscal year 2024. According to the statistics provided by LSEG, analysts had an average expectation of 55.50 billion dollars.

Insider Intelligence analyst Jacob Bourne stated that the forecast is contingent, in part, on the degree to which Broadcom can successfully incorporate the reorganization into its long-term artificial intelligence plan.

CEO Hock Tan confirmed prior media reports by announcing that VMware’s non-core end-user computing and Carbon Black businesses will be sold. This announcement was made during a call after the company’s earnings report.

The firm also estimated that its yearly adjusted EBITDA would be around sixty percent of its projected sales, amounting to approximately thirty billion dollars. This is an anticipated increase of over seven billion dollars in the company’s EBITDA in 2023.

After the acquisition, Broadcom’s first objective was to increase VMware’s EBITDA contribution to $8.5 billion within three years of the transaction.

During the call, Chief Financial Officer Kristen Spears stated that the business anticipates incurring around one billion dollars in transition costs relating to VMware.

The firm has experienced a decrease in revenue from its telecom and enterprise clients, and experts are concerned that Broadcom will also experience the impact of this trend. Cisco Systems (CSCO.O), a significant client, has reported a slowdown in the number of new orders submitted.

“We continue to see a very mixed demand environment for Broadcom’s service provider and enterprise businesses,” said Kinngai Chan, an analyst at Summit Insights.

Broadcom’s leading solutions for artificial intelligence are being challenged by competition from Nvidia (NVDA.O.), whose InfiniBand is being utilized as an alternative to Broadcom’s services.

Broadcom’s sales for the fourth quarter came in at $9.30 billion, which was lower than the $9.41 billion that was anticipated.

On the other hand, the company’s profit of $11.06 per share, which was adjusted, was higher than the projections of $10.98 per share.
