SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- November 19, 2012

Intel Corporation today announced that the company’s president and CEO, Paul
Otellini, has decided to retire as an officer and director at the company’s
annual stockholders’ meeting in May, starting an orderly leadership transition
over the next six months. Otellini’s decision to retire will bring to a close
a remarkable career of nearly 40 years of continuous service to the company
and its stockholders.

“Paul Otellini has been a very strong leader, only the fifth CEO in the
company’s great 45-year history, and one who has managed the company through
challenging times and market transitions,” said Andy Bryant, chairman of the
board. “The board is grateful for his innumerable contributions to the company
and his distinguished tenure as CEO over the last eight years.”

“I’ve been privileged to lead one of the world’s greatest companies,” Otellini
said. “After almost four decades with the company and eight years as CEO, it’s
time to move on and transfer Intel’s helm to a new generation of leadership. I
look forward to working with Andy, the board and the management team during
the six-month transition period, and to being available as an advisor to
management after retiring as CEO.”

The board of directors will conduct the process to choose Otellini’s successor
and will consider internal and external candidates for the job.

In addition, the company also announced that the board has approved the
promotion of three senior leaders to the position of executive vice president:
Renee James, head of Intel’s software business; Brian Krzanich, chief
operating officer and head of worldwide manufacturing; and Stacy Smith, chief
financial officer and director of corporate strategy.

During Otellini’s tenure as CEO -- from the second quarter of 2005 through the
third quarter of 2012 -- Intel:

  *Generated cash from operations of $107 billion
  *Made $23.5 billion in dividend payments
  *Increased the quarterly dividend 181 percent from $0.08 to $0.225

From the end of 2005 through the end of 2011, Intel achieved record revenue
and net income. During this period, annual revenue grew from $38.8 billion to
$54 billion, while annual earnings-per-share grew from $1.40 to $2.39.

In addition to financial performance, Intel, under Otellini’s leadership,
achieved notable successes in areas of strategic importance. During this
period, the company:

  *Transformed operations and the cost structure for long-term growth

    Tri-gate transistors; and dramatic improvement in energy efficiency of
    Intel processors
