|This Registration Statement covers the number of shares of Marvell Technology Group Ltd., a Bermuda company (the Company or the Registrant), common shares, par value $0.002 per share (the Common Shares), stated above, that may be delivered in settlement of options and restricted stock units assumed in connection with the acquisition by the Company of Cavium, Inc. (Cavium) pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among the Company, Kauai Acquisition Corp., and Cavium (dated November 19, 2017) (the Assumed Equity Awards). The Assumed Equity Awards are outstanding under the Cavium, Inc. 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, the Cavium, Inc. 2007 Equity Incentive Plan and the QLogic Corporation 2005 Performance Incentive Plan, as assumed by Cavium effective August 16, 2016 (collectively, the Plans).

Pursuant to Rule 416 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), this registration statement also covers the issuance of any additional Common Shares under the Plans to prevent dilution resulting from stock splits, stock dividends or similar transactions.
|The price per share was calculated in accordance with Securities Act Rule 457(c) and (h) for purposes of calculating the registration fee. For shares to be issued pursuant to the exercise of outstanding option awards, the maximum aggregate offering price was computed by multiplying 2,535,940 shares by the weighted average exercise price of the options ($11.40 per share). For shares to be issued pursuant to the vesting of outstanding restricted stock units, the maximum aggregated offering price was computed by multiplying 13,288,615 shares by the average of the high and low price of the Common Shares as reported on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on July 2, 2018 ($21.13 per share).
Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (the Company or the Registrant) has filed this Registration Statement on Form S-8 to register 15,824,555 common shares of the Company, $0.002 par value per share (the Common Shares), issuable under the Cavium, Inc. 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, Cavium, Inc. 2007 Equity Incentive Plan and QLogic Corporation 2005 Performance Incentive Plan, as assumed by Cavium effective August 16, 2016 (collectively, the Plans), comprised of:
|2,535,940 Common Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding but unexercised options under the Plans and
|13,288,615 Common Shares issuable pursuant to outstanding unvested restricted stock units under the Plans.
Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), dated as of November 19, 2017, by and among the Company, Kauai Acquisition Corp., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (Merger Sub), and Cavium, Inc. (Cavium), Merger Sub merged with and into Cavium on July 6, 2018 (the Effective Date), with Cavium surviving as an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the Merger).
In accordance with the Merger Agreement, as of the Effective Date, certain outstanding options to purchase shares of Cavium common stock and certain restricted stock units with respect to Cavium common stock, each granted under the Plans, will be assumed by the Company and converted into options to purchase Common Shares and restricted stock units with respect to Common Shares, respectively.

|Description of Securities.
|Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.
|Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
The Registrant was formed under the laws of Bermuda. Set forth below is a description of certain provisions of the Companies Act, 1981 of Bermuda (the Companies Act), the Registrants Memorandum of Association, and the Registrants Bye-laws, as such provisions relate to the indemnification of the Registrants directors and officers. This description is intended only as a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable provisions of the Companies Act, the Registrants Memorandum of Association, and the registrants Bye-laws, which are filed as Exhibits 3.2 and 3.5 to the Registrants Registration Statement on Form S-3 filed with the Commission on June 13, 2018 and are incorporated herein by reference.
The Companies Act permits the Registrant to indemnify its directors or officers in their capacity as such in respect of any loss arising or liability attaching to them by virtue of any rule of law in respect of any negligence, default, breach of duty or breach of trust of which a director or officer may be guilty in relation to the Registrant other than in respect of his or her own fraud or dishonesty.
The Registrants Bye-laws provide that every director, officer, committee member and any resident representative of the Registrant be indemnified and secured harmless out of the assets of the registrant from and against all actions, costs, charges, losses, damages or expenses incurred or sustained in such capacity, and none of them shall be answerable for the acts, receipts, neglects or defaults of the others of them subject to limitations imposed in the Companies Act and provided that the indemnity shall not extend to any matter in respect of any fraud or dishonesty.
Bye-law 32 of the Registrants Bye-laws stipulates that each shareholder and the Registrant agree to waive any claim or right of action against any director, officer or committee member, in respect of any failure to act or any action taken by such director, officer or committee member in the performance of his or her duties with or for the Registrant. The waiver does not extend to claims arising under United States federal securities laws or any claims, rights of action arising from the fraud or dishonesty of the director, officer, committee member.

1. The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:
(a) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:
|To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
|To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of this Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the Calculation of Registration Fee table in the effective registration statement; and
|To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in this Registration Statement or any material change to such information in this Registration Statement;
provided, however, that paragraphs (1)(a)(i) and (1)(a)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement;
(b) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof; and
(c) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
2. The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the Registrants annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act that of 1934 that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
3. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this registration statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Santa Clara, State of California, on this 6th day of July, 2018.
