This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
(AMD) including the features, functionality, availability, timing and expected benefits of AMD’s current
and future products, including 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors, which are made
pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forwardlooking
statements are commonly identified by words such as “would,” “intends,” “believes,” “expects,”
“may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “pro forma,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” or the
negative of these words and phrases, other variations of these words and phrases or comparable
terminology. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this document are based on
current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve
risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Such
statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult
to predict and generally beyond AMD’s control, that could cause actual results and other future events to
differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and
statements. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations
include, without limitation, the following: Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market
and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively; AMD has a wafer
supply agreement with GF with obligations to purchase all of its microprocessor and APU product
requirements, and a certain portion of its GPU product requirements, from GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF)
with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, its business could
be adversely impacted; AMD relies on third parties to manufacture its products, and if they are unable to
do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, AMD’s business could
be materially adversely affected; failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for AMD’s products
could negatively impact its financial results; the success of AMD’s business is dependent upon its ability
to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its
customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions; if AMD cannot generate
sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, it may face a cash shortfall and
be unable to make all of its planned investments in research and development or other strategic
investments; the loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on AMD; AMD’s receipt
of revenue from its semi-custom SoC products is dependent upon its technology being designed into thirdparty
products and the success of those products; AMD products may be subject to security vulnerabilities
that could have a material adverse effect on AMD; data breaches and cyber-attacks could compromise
AMD’s intellectual property or other sensitive information, be costly to remediate and cause significant
damage to its business and reputation; AMD’s operating results are subject to quarterly and seasonal sales
patterns; global economic uncertainty may adversely impact AMD’s business and operating results; AMD
may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital
requirements; AMD has a large amount of indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial position
and prevent it from implementing its strategy or fulfilling its contractual obligations; the agreements
governing AMD’s notes and the Secured Revolving Line of Credit impose restrictions on AMD that may
adversely affect its ability to operate its business; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly
competitive; AMD’s issuance to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of warrants to purchase 75 million shares
of its common stock, if and when exercised, will dilute the ownership interests of its existing stockholders,
and the conversion of the 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 may dilute the ownership interest
of its existing stockholders, or may otherwise depress the price of its common stock; uncertainties
involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products could materially adversely affect it; the demand
for AMD’s products depends in part on the market conditions in the industries into which they are sold.
Fluctuations in demand for AMD’s products or a market decline in any of these industries could have a
material adverse effect on its results of operations; AMD’s ability to design and introduce new products
in a timely manner is dependent upon third-party intellectual property; AMD depends on third-party
companies for the design, manufacture and supply of motherboards, software and other computer
platform components to support its business; if AMD loses Microsoft Corporation’s support for its
products or other software vendors do not design and develop software to run on AMD’s products, its
ability to sell its products could be materially adversely affected; and AMD’s reliance on third-party
distributors and AIB partners subjects it to certain risks. Investors are urged to review in detail the risks
and uncertainties in AMD’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD’s
Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
