Cau­tio­na­ry State­ment
This press release con­tains for­ward-loo­king state­ments con­cer­ning Advan­ced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) inclu­ding the fea­tures, func­tio­n­a­li­ty, avai­la­bi­li­ty, timing, deploy­ment and expec­ta­ti­ons of AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series Mobi­le Pro­ces­sors, AMD Ath­lon™ 3000 Series Mobi­le Pro­ces­sor, and the AMD Ryzen™ Thre­ad­rip­per™ 3990X, 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,” “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 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; 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; 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 third-par­ty pro­duc­ts and the suc­cess of tho­se pro­duc­ts; glo­bal eco­no­mic uncer­tain­ty may adver­se­ly impact AMD’s busi­ness and ope­ra­ting results; AMD’s ope­ra­ti­ons are sub­ject to poli­ti­cal, legal and eco­no­mic risks and natu­ral dis­as­ters which could have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on AMD; government actions and regu­la­ti­ons such as export admi­nis­tra­ti­on regu­la­ti­ons, tariffs and tra­de pro­tec­tion mea­su­res, may limit AMD’s abi­li­ty to export its pro­duc­ts to cer­tain custo­mers; AMD pro­duc­ts may be sub­ject to secu­ri­ty vul­nera­bi­li­ties that could have a mate­ri­al adver­se effect on AMD; IT outa­ges, data loss, 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; 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; 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 Sep­tem­ber 28, 2019.

Ther­mal wat­ta­ge for pro­ces­sors is con­vey­ed via ther­mal design power (TDP). TDP is a cal­cu­la­ted value that con­veys an appro­pria­te ther­mal solu­ti­on to achie­ve the inten­ded ope­ra­ti­on of a pro­ces­sor. Elec­tri­cal watts are not a varia­ble in the TDP cal­cu­la­ti­on. By design, elec­tri­cal watts can vary from workload to workload and may exceed ther­mal watts. GD-109
