Chipmaker LSI Logic Corp has been added to the list of companies hit by recent stringent SEC guidelines on the write-off of purchased research and development taken in connection with acquisitions. The company said on Wednesday that it has reduced a one-time charge taken last year for its acquisition of Symbios Inc from $225m to $146m. The Milpitas, California-based company said the change will effectively increase goodwill amortization on a quarterly basis by $2.5m, or $0.01 per share, although it did not specify how the adjustment would affect past earnings or which quarters will be restated.
