### Abstract

The linear delay differential equation x′(t) = p(t)x(t − r) is considered, where r > 0 and the coefficient p: [t_{0},∞) → ℝ is a continuous function such that p(t) → 0 as t → ∞. In a recent paper [M. Pituk, G. Röst, Bound. Value Probl. 2014:114] an asymptotic description of the solutions has been given in terms of a special solution of the associated formal adjoint equation and the initial data. In this paper, we give a representation of the special solution of the formal adjoint equation. Under some additional conditions, the representation theorem yields explicit asymptotic formulas for the solutions as t → ∞.
