Analysis of Inventory

Difficulty: Advanced


Inventory Accounting Policy

Broadcom values the inventory at the lower of actual cost or net realizable value of the inventory, with cost being determined under the first-in, first-out method. Broadcom records a provision for excess and obsolete inventory based primarily on the forecast of product demand and production requirements. The excess and obsolete balance determined by this analysis becomes the basis for Broadcom’s excess and obsolete inventory charge and the written-down value of the inventory becomes its new cost basis.
