Effective Income Tax Rates  Our fiscal 2014 annual effective income tax rates are estimated to be 14 percent for GAAP and 15 percent for Non-GAAP, both of which include the United States federal R&D tax credit generated through December 31, 2013, the date on which the credit expired. During the third quarter of fiscal 2014, we recorded a $66 million tax benefit as a result of an agreement reached with the Internal Revenue Service related to transfer pricing on our fiscal 2013 tax return, which was excluded from Non-GAAP results.  Business Outlook  The following statements are forward looking, and actual results may differ materially. The "Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in this news release provides a description of certain risks that we face, and our most recent quarterly report on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) provide a more complete description of risks.  Our outlook does not include provisions for future asset impairments or for pending legal matters, other than future legal amounts that are probable and estimable. Further, due to their nature, certain income and expense items, such as realized investment and certain derivative gains or losses, cannot be accurately forecast. Accordingly, we only include such items in our financial outlook to the extent they are reasonably certain; however, actual results may differ materially from the outlook.  During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, we expect to complete a minimum of $1 billion in stock repurchases under our current stock repurchase program. Our outlook for fiscal 2014 diluted earnings per share includes an estimate of the benefit related to stock repurchases.  China continues to present significant opportunities for us, particularly with the rollout of 4G LTE, but also presents significant challenges, as our business practices continue to be the subject of an investigation by the China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). Please refer to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended June 29, 2014 filed with the SEC for our most recent disclosures regarding the NDRC investigation.  We also believe that certain licensees in China currently are not fully complying with their contractual obligations to report their sales of licensed products to us (which includes certain licensees underreporting a portion of their 3G/4G device sales and a dispute with a licensee) and that unlicensed companies may seek to delay execution of new licenses while the NDRC investigation is ongoing. We expect calendar year 2014 3G/4G device shipments to be approximately 1.3 billion globally. However, our estimate of calendar year 2014 3G/4G device shipments that we currently expect to be reported to us is approximately 1.04 billion to 1.13 billion, which is adjusted for units that we believemay not be reported to us, are in dispute or are currently unlicensed. We are taking steps to address these issues, although the timing of any resolution is uncertain.  The following table summarizes GAAP and Non-GAAP guidance based on the current outlook. The Non-GAAP outlook presented below is consistent with the presentation of Non-GAAP results included elsewhere herein.

(3)      Total reported device sales is the sum of all reported sales in U.S.     dollars (as reported to us by our licensees) of all licensed CDMA-based,     OFDMA-based and CDMA/OFDMA multimode subscriber devices (including     handsets, modules, modem cards and other subscriber devices) by our     licensees during a particular period (collectively, 3G/4G devices). The     reported quarterly estimated ranges of average selling prices (ASPs) and     unit shipments are determined based on the information as reported to us     by our licensees during the relevant period and our own estimates of the     selling prices and unit shipments for licensees that do not provide such     information. Not all licensees report sales, selling prices and/or unit (1) shipments the same way (e.g., some licensees report sales net of permitted     deductions, including transportation, insurance, packing costs and other     items, while other licensees report sales and then identify the amount of     permitted deductions in their reports), and the way in which licensees     report such information may change from time to time. In addition, certain     licensees may not report (in the quarter in which they are contractually     obligated to report) their sales of certain types of subscriber units,     which (as a result of audits, legal actions or for other reasons) may be     reported in a subsequent quarter. Accordingly, total reported device     sales, estimated unit shipments and estimated ASPs for a particular period     may include prior period activity that was not reported by the licensee     until such particular period.     Our prior guidance for fiscal 2014 GAAP diluted EPS excluded a $66 million (2) tax benefit that we recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 as a     result of an agreement reached with the Internal Revenue Service, which     was excluded from our Non-GAAP results.     We expect calendar year 2014 3G/4G device shipments to be approximately     1.3 billion globally. However, our estimate of calendar year 2014 3G/4G     device shipments that we currently expect to be reported to us is (3) approximately 1.04 billion to 1.13 billion, which is adjusted for units     that we believemay not be reported to us, are in dispute or are currently     unlicensed.

Non-GAAP     reconciling items related to earnings before taxes consisted primarily of (1) certain research and development expenses, selling, general and     administrative expenses, other expenses or income and certain investment     income that are not allocated to the segments for management reporting     purposes; nonreportable segment results; and the elimination of     intersegment profit.     During the first quarter of fiscal 2014, as a result of the reassessment     of management reporting, the former Qualcomm Wireless & Internet (QWI) (2) segment was eliminated. Revenues and operating results for the divisions     that comprised the QWI segment are included in Non-GAAP reconciling items.     Prior period information has been adjusted to conform to the current     presentation.     At fiscal year end, the sum of the quarterly tax provision (benefit) for     each column equals the annual tax provision (benefit) for each column (3) computed in accordance with GAAP. In interim quarters, the sum of these     provisions (benefits) may not equal the total GAAP tax provision, and this     difference is allocated to tax provisions (benefits) among the columns.     During the first quarter of fiscal 2014, a gain of $665 million was (4) recorded associated with the sale of substantially all of the operations     of our Omnitracs division.

Conference Call  Qualcomm's third quarter fiscal 2014 earnings conference call will be broadcast live on July 23, 2014, beginning at 2:45 p.m. Pacific Time (PT) at http://investor.qualcomm.com/events.cfm. This conference call will include a discussion of "Non-GAAP financial measures" as defined in Regulation G. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and information reconciling these Non-GAAP financial measures to the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, as well as other financial and statistical information to be discussed on the conference call, will be posted at www.qualcomm.com/investorimmediately prior to commencement of the call. An audio replay will be available at http://investor.qualcomm.com/events.cfmand via telephone following the live call for 30 days thereafter. To listen to the replay via telephone, U.S. callers may dial (855) 859-2056 and international callers may dial (404) 537-3406. Callers should use reservation number 63935250.  Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures  The Non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, "Non-GAAP" is not a term defined by GAAP, and as a result, the Company's measure of Non-GAAP results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP results are presented herein.  The Company uses Non-GAAP financial information (i) to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's operating results on a consistent and comparable basis; (ii) to measure the performance and efficiency of the Company's ongoing core operating businesses, including the QCT (Qualcomm CDMA Technologies) and QTL (Qualcomm Technology Licensing) segments; and (iii) to compare the performance and efficiency of these segments against each other and against competitors. Non-GAAP measurements used by the Company include revenues, cost of equipment and services revenues, R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, operating income, net investment income, income or earnings before income taxes, effective tax rate, net income and diluted earnings per share. The Company is able to assess what it believes is a more meaningful and comparable set of financial performance measures for the Company and its business segments by using Non-GAAP information. As a result, management compensation decisions and the review of executive compensation by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors focus primarily on Non-GAAP financial measures applicable to the Company and its business segments. The Company presents Non-GAAP financial information to provide greater transparency to investors with respect to its use of such information in financial and operational decision-making.  Non-GAAP information used by management excludes QSI and certain share-based compensation, acquisition-related items and tax items.    oQSI is excluded because the Company expects to exit its strategic     investments at various times, and the effects of fluctuations in the value     of such investments and realized gains or losses are viewed by management     as unrelated to the Company's operational performance.   oShare-based compensation expense primarily relates to restricted stock     units. Non-cash share-based compensation is excluded because management     views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the     Company's ongoing core businesses.   oAcquisition-related items include amortization and impairment of certain     intangible assets, recognition of the step-up of inventories to fair value     and the related tax effects of these items starting with acquisitions     completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as well as any tax effects     from restructuring the ownership of such acquired assets. Additionally,     the Company excludes expenses related to the termination of contracts that     limit the use of the acquired intellectual property. These     acquisition-related items are excluded and are not allocated to the     Company's segments because management views such expenses as unrelated to     the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses. In     addition, these charges are impacted by the size and timing of     acquisitions, potentially obscuring period-to-period comparisons of the     Company's operating businesses.   oCertain tax items that are unrelated to the fiscal year in which they are     recorded are excluded in order to provide a clearer understanding of the     Company's ongoing Non-GAAP tax rate and after tax earnings.
