It said revenue in the second quarter would be $2.10 billion, plus or minus 4 percent.
Analysts, on average, had expected first-quarter revenue of $1.913 billion and second-quarter revenue of $2.050 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Broadcom reported a net profit of $191 million, or 33 cents per share, compared with a net profit of $88 million, or 15 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted earnings per share were 65 cents, beating the 56 cents expected by analysts.
Shares of Broadcom rose 2.33 percent in extended trade after closing up 1.17 percent at $32.98.
