Item 5. Other Events

LSI Logic Corporation (the “Registrant”) currently anticipates that revenues for the second quarter of 2003 will increase by approximately 9 percent over revenues for the first quarter of 2003. The Registrant also announced a series of actions, completing the revamping of the company’s global manufacturing strategy. These actions enable the acceleration of the final disposition of the Registrant’s Tsukuba, Japan and Colorado Springs, Colorado manufacturing facilities. The Registrant anticipates reporting $140 million to $160 million in special items and expects a GAAP* net loss of 43-50 cents. On a pro forma basis, the Registrant’s current expectation for net loss per share, excluding special items, is in the range of 6-8 cents.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Registrant’s management believes that net loss per share excluding special items in the News Release dated June 30, 2003 (the “Release”), as presented provides useful information to investors regarding results of operations, as it excludes charges, expenses, gains and losses that are not directly related to the ongoing business results and/or stem from purchase business combinations. These business results are used by management for evaluating historical performance in addition to being used for the Registrant’s forecasting and planning for future periods. Restructuring of operations and other items, net, are examples of charges that are not directly related to the Registrant’s ongoing business. Charges for acquired in-process research and development and amortization of non-cash deferred stock compensation and intangibles are examples of items stemming from purchase business combinations.

Results of operations excluding special items for the periods presented are provided for illustrative purposes only and should be read in conjunction with the comparable information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and the Registrant’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K for the twelve months
