Risk Factors

The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and
expectations for the second quarter, the year and the future are
forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties.
Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,”
“seeks,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “should” and their variations identify
forward-looking statements.Statements that refer to or are based on
projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking
statements.Many factors could affect Intel’s actual results, and variances
from Intel’s current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual
results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking
statements. Intel presently considers the following to be the important
factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the
company’s expectations.

  *Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors
    including changes in business and economic conditions; customer acceptance
    of Intel’s and competitors’ products; supply constraints and other
    disruptions affecting customers; changes in customer order patterns
    including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at
    customers. Uncertainty in global economic and financial conditions poses a
    risk that consumers and businesses may defer purchases in response to
    negative financial events, which could negatively affect product demand
    and other related matters.
  *Intel operates in intensely competitive industries that are characterized
    by a high percentage of costs that are fixed or difficult to reduce in the
    short term and product demand that is highly variable and difficult to
    forecast. Revenue and the gross margin percentage are affected by the
    timing of Intel product introductions and the demand for and market
    acceptance of Intel's products; actions taken by Intel's competitors,
    including product offerings and introductions, marketing programs and
    pricing pressures and Intel’s response to such actions; and Intel’s
    ability to respond quickly to technological developments and to
    incorporate new features into its products.
  *The gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations
    based on capacity utilization; variations in inventory valuation,
    including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for
    sale; changes in revenue levels; segment product mix; the timing and
    execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; start-up costs;
    excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or
    disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; product manufacturing
    quality/yields; and impairments of long-lived assets, including
    manufacturing, assembly/test and intangible assets.
  *The tax rate expectation is based on current tax law and current expected
    income. The tax rate may be affected by the jurisdictions in which profits
    are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in the estimates of
    credits, benefits and deductions; the resolution of issues arising from
    tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment of interest and
    penalties; and the ability to realize deferred tax assets.
  *Gains or losses from equity securities and interest and other could vary
    from expectations depending on gains or losses on the sale, exchange,
    change in the fair value or impairments of debt and equity investments;
    interest rates; cash balances; and changes in fair value of derivative
    instruments. The majority of our marketable equity security portfolio
    balance is concentrated in ASML Holding, N.V., and declines in value could
    result in impairment charges, impacting gains or losses on equity
  *Intel's results could be affected by adverse economic, social, political
    and physical/infrastructure conditions in countries where Intel, its
    customers or its suppliers operate, including military conflict and other
    security risks, natural disasters, infrastructure disruptions, health
    concerns and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
  *Expenses, particularly certain marketing and compensation expenses, as
    well as restructuring and asset impairment charges, vary depending on the
    level of demand for Intel's products and the level of revenue and profits.
  *Intel’s results could be affected by the timing of closing of acquisitions
    and divestitures.
  *Intel’s current chief executive officer plans to retire in May 2013 and
    the Board of Directors is working to choose a successor. The succession
    and transition process may have a direct and/or indirect effect on the
    business and operations of the company. In connection with the appointment
    of the new CEO, the company will seek to retain our executive management
    team (some of whom are being considered for the CEO position), and keep
    employees focused on achieving the company’s strategic goals and
  *Intel's results could be affected by adverse effects associated with
    product defects and errata (deviations from published specifications), and
    by litigation or regulatory matters involving intellectual property,
    stockholder, consumer, antitrust, disclosure and other issues, such as the
    litigation and regulatory matters described in Intel's SEC reports. An
    unfavorable ruling could include monetary damages or an injunction
    prohibiting Intel from manufacturing or selling one or more products,
    precluding particular business practices, impacting Intel’s ability to
    design its products, or requiring other remedies such as compulsory
    licensing of intellectual property.

A detailed discussion of these and other factors that could affect Intel’s
results is included in Intel’s SEC filings, including the company’s most
recent report on Form 10-K.
