Quarterly Financial Summary 


 
--  Gross margin was 15 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin was 39 percent, a
    sequential increase of 8 percent. Q3 2012 gross margin of 31 percent
    was adversely impacted by an inventory write-down of approximately
    $100 million. Fourth quarter gross margin was positively impacted by
    the sales of higher priced desktop microprocessors.
--  Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance, including
    long-term marketable securities, was $1.2 billion at the end of the
    quarter.
--  AMD announced restructuring actions and operational efficiencies in Q4
    2012, resulting in a net restructuring charge of $90 million in the
    quarter, which includes costs related to actions taken in Q4 2012 as
    well as an estimate of the expected costs related to Q1 2013 workforce
    reductions.
--  Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 11 percent sequentially
    and 37 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year
    decreases were primarily driven by lower microprocessor unit volume
    shipments.
    --  Operating loss was $323 million, compared with an operating loss
        of $114 million in Q3 2012 and operating income of $165 million in
        Q4 2011. Q4 2012 operating loss increased $209 million
        sequentially primarily due to the impact of a Lower of Cost or
        Market (LCM) charge related to the GLOBLFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF)
        take-or-pay obligation of $273 million. The charge was previously
        expected to be $165 million.
    --  Microprocessor ASP increased sequentially and decreased
        year-over-year.
--  Graphics segment revenue decreased 5 percent sequentially and 15
    percent year-over-year. Graphics processor unit (GPU) revenue
    decreased sequentially and year-over-year due to lower unit volume
    shipments.
    --  Operating income was $22 million, compared with $18 million in Q3
        2012 and $27 million in Q4 2011.
    --  GPU ASP was flat sequentially and increased year-over-year.

Cautionary Statement 
 This release contains forward-looking
statements concerning AMD, its first quarter 2013 revenue, its future
growth in key segments and the timing and functionality of planned
future products and technologies which are made pursuant to the safe
harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of
1995. Forward-looking statements are commonly identified by words
such as "would," "may," "expects," "believes," "plans," "intends,"
"projects," and other terms with similar meaning. Investors are
cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this release are
based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as
of the date of this release and involve risks and uncertainties that
could cause actual results to differ materially from current
expectations. Risks include the possibility that Intel Corporation's
pricing, marketing and rebating programs, product bundling, standard
setting, new product introductions or other activities targeting the
company's business will prevent attainment of the company'
s current
plans; the company will be unable to develop, launch and ramp new
products and technologies in the volumes and mix required by the
market and at mature yields on a timely basis; GLOBALFOUNDRIES will
be unable to manufacture the company's products on a timely basis in
sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies; the company
will be unable to obtain sufficient manufacturing capacity or
components to meet demand for its products or will under-utilize its
commitment with respect to GLOBALFOUNDRIES' microprocessor
manufacturing facilities; the company will be unable to transition
its products to advanced manufacturing process technologies in a
timely and effective way; global business and economic conditions
will not continue to improve or will worsen resulting in lower than
currently expected demand; demand for computers and consumer
electronics products and, in turn, demand for the company's products
will be lower than currently expected; customers stop buying the
company's products or materially reduce their demand for its
products; the company will require additional funding and may not be
able to raise funds on favorable terms or at all; there will be
unexpected variations in market growth and demand for the company's
products and technologies in light of the product mix that it may
have available at any particular time or a decline in demand; and the
company will be unable to maintain the level of investment in
research and development that is required to remain competitive.
Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties
in the company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings,
including but not limited to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for
the quarter ended September 29, 2012.

(1) In this press release, in addition to GAAP financial results, the
Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP
gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income
(loss) and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share. These non-GAAP
financial measures reflect certain adjustments as presented in the
tables in this press release. The Company also provided Adjusted
EBITDA and non-GAAP Adjusted free cash flow as supplemental measures
of its performance. These items are defined in the footnotes to the
selected corporate data tables provided at the end of this press
release. The Company is providing these financial measures because it
believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to
compare its operating results for current and historical periods and
also because the Company believes it assists investors in comparing
the Company's performance across reporting periods on a consistent
basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of
its core operating performance and for the other reasons described in
the footnotes to the selected data tables. Refer to corresponding
tables at the end of this press release for additional AMD data.

    * The Company presents "Adjusted EBITDA" as a supplemental measure of   
    its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by       
    adjusting operating income (loss) for depreciation and amortization,    
    employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired  
    intangible assets.In addition, the Company also included the following  
    adjustments for the applicable period: for the fourth quarter of 2012,  
    the Company also included adjustments for the lower of cost or market   
    charge (LCM Charge) related to GF take-or-pay obligation and net        
    restructuring charges; for the third quarter of 2012 and the fourth     
    quarter of 2011, the Company also included an adjustment for net        
    restructuring charges; for 2012, the Company also included adjustments  
    for the LCM Charge, a charge related to the limited waiver of           
    exclusivity from GF, a legal settlement with a third party, net         
    restructuring charges and costs related to the acquisition of SeaMicro; 
    and for 2011, the Company also included adjustments related to a        
    payment to GF, a legal settlement with a third party and net            
    restructuring charges. The Company calculates and communicates Adjusted 
    EBITDA in the financial schedules because the Company's management      
    believes it is of importance to investors and lenders in relation to    
    its overall capital structure and its ability to borrow additional      
    funds. In addition, the Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it     
    believes this measure assists investors in comparing its performance    
    across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that  
    the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating       
    performance. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may    
    not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other         
    companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted      
    EBITDA as an alternative to the GAAP operating measure of operating     
    income (loss) or GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating,  
    investing and financing activities. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does   
    not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well 
    as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows.                
                                                                            
    ** The Company also presents non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow in the    
    earnings release as a supplemental measure of its performance. In 2008  
    and 2009, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively,    
    the "AMD Parties") entered into supplier agreements with IBM Credit LLC 
    and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the "IBM Parties").      
    Pursuant to these supplier agreements, the AMD Parties sold to the IBM  
    Parties invoices of selected distributor customers. Because the Company 
    does not recognize revenue until its distributors sell its products to  
    their customers, under GAAP, the Company classified funds received from 
    the IBM Parties as debt on the balance sheet. Moreover, for cash flow   
    purposes, these funds were classified as cash flows from financing      
    activities. When a distributor paid the applicable IBM Party, the       
    Company reduced the distributor's accounts receivable and the           
    corresponding debt resulted in a noncash accounting entry. Because the  
    Company did not receive the cash from the distributor to reduce the     
    accounts receivable, the distributor's payment was not reflected in the 
    Company's cash flows from operating activities. Non-GAAP adjusted free  
    cash flow for the Company was determined by adding the distributors'    
    payments to the IBM Parties to GAAP net cash provided by (used in)      
    operating activities. This amount was then further adjusted by          
    subtracting capital expenditures. Generally, under GAAP, the reduction  
    in accounts receivable is assumed to be a source of operating cash      
    flows. Therefore, the Company believes that treating the payments from  
    its distributor customers to the IBM Parties as if the Company actually 
    received the cash from the distributor and then used that cash to pay   
    down the debt is more reflective of the economic substance of the       
    transaction. On February 11, 2011, the Company terminated its supplier  
    agreements with IBM Parties. As a result, as of the end of the second   
    quarter of 2011, there were no outstanding invoices relating to the     
    financing arrangement with the IBM Parties, and starting from the third 
    quarter of 2011, the Company no longer makes quarterly adjustments for  
    distributors' payments to the IBM Parties to its GAAP net cash provided 
    by (used in) operating activities when calculating non-GAAP adjusted    
    free cash flow. The Company calculates and communicates non-GAAP        
    adjusted free cash flow in the financial schedules because the          
    Company's management believes it is of importance to investors to       
    understand the nature of these cash flows. The Company's calculation of 
    non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow may or may not be consistent with the  
    calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry.    
    Investors should not view non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow as an        
    alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating or  
    financing activities. The Company has provided reconciliations within   
    the press release and financial schedules of these non-GAAP financial   
    measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
