The짯re is no cer짯tain짯ty that such mea짯su짯res will be suf짯fi짯ci짯ent to miti짯ga짯te the risks posed by the virus, and ill짯ness and work짯force dis짯rup짯ti짯ons could lead to unavai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty of our key per짯son짯nel and harm our abili짯ty to per짯form cri짯ti짯cal func짯tions. The pan짯de짯mic has signi짯fi짯cant짯ly increased eco짯no짯mic and demand uncer짯tain짯ty. Demand for our pro짯ducts could be mate짯ri짯al짯ly har짯med in the future. The pan짯de짯mic could lead to increased dis짯rup짯ti짯on and vola짯ti짯li짯ty in capi짯tal mar짯kets and cre짯dit mar짯kets, which could adver짯se짯ly affect our liqui짯di짯ty and capi짯tal resour짯ces. The degree to which COVID-19 impacts our results will depend on future deve짯lo짯p짯ments, which are high짯ly uncer짯tain.

뼧       Intel ope짯ra짯tes in high짯ly com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯ve indus짯tries and its ope짯ra짯ti짯ons have high cos짯ts that are eit짯her fixed or dif짯fi짯cult to redu짯ce in the short term. In addi짯ti짯on, we have ente짯red new are짯as and intro짯du짯ced adja짯cent pro짯ducts, such as our inten짯ti짯on to beco짯me a major pro짯vi짯der of foundry ser짯vices, and we face new sources of com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯on and uncer짯tain mar짯ket demand or accep짯tance of our offe짯rings with respect to the짯se new are짯as and pro짯ducts, and they do not always grow as projected.

뼧       Intel셲 expec짯ted tax rate is based on cur짯rent tax law, inclu짯ding cur짯rent inter짯pre짯ta짯ti짯ons of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), and cur짯rent expec짯ted inco짯me and can be affec짯ted by chan짯ges in inter짯pre짯ta짯ti짯ons of TCJA and other laws; chan짯ges in the volu짯me and mix of pro짯fits ear짯ned and loca짯ti짯on of assets across juris짯dic짯tions with vary짯ing tax rates; chan짯ges in the esti짯ma짯tes of cre짯dits, bene짯fits, and deduc짯tions; the reso짯lu짯ti짯on of issues ari짯sing from tax audits with various tax aut짯ho짯ri짯ties, inclu짯ding pay짯ment of inte짯rest and pen짯al짯ties; and the abili짯ty to rea짯li짯ze defer짯red tax assets.

뼧       Intel셲 results can be affec짯ted by gains or los짯ses from equi짯ty secu짯ri짯ties and inte짯rest and other, which can vary depen짯ding on gains or los짯ses on the chan짯ge in fair value, sale, exch짯an짯ge, or impairm짯ents of equi짯ty and debt invest짯ments, inte짯rest rates, cash balan짯ces, and chan짯ges in fair value of deri짯va짯ti짯ve instruments. 

뼧       Pro짯duct defects or erra짯ta (devia짯ti짯ons from published spe짯ci짯fi짯ca짯ti짯ons) can adver짯se짯ly impact our expen짯ses, reve짯nues, and reputation.

Adver짯se publi짯ci짯ty about secu짯ri짯ty vul짯nerabi짯li짯ties or miti짯ga짯ti짯ons could dama짯ge our repu짯ta짯ti짯on with cus짯to짯mers or users and redu짯ce demand for our pro짯ducts and services.

뼧       Cyber짯se짯cu짯ri짯ty inci짯dents, whe짯ther or not suc짯cessful, can affect Intel셲 results by caus짯ing us to incur signi짯fi짯cant cos짯ts or dis짯rupt짯ing our ope짯ra짯ti짯ons or tho짯se of our cus짯to짯mers and sup짯pli짯ers, and can result in repu짯ta짯tio짯nal harm.

뼧       Intel셲 results can be affec짯ted by liti짯ga짯ti짯on or regu짯la짯to짯ry mat짯ters invol짯ving intellec짯tu짯al pro짯per짯ty, stock짯hol짯der, con짯su짯mer, anti짯trust, com짯mer짯cial, dis짯clo짯sure, and other issues, as well as by the impact and timing of sett짯le짯ments and dis짯pu짯te reso짯lu짯ti짯ons. For exam짯p짯le, in the first quar짯ter of 2021, Intel accrued a $2.2 bil짯li짯on char짯ge rela짯ted to liti짯ga짯ti짯on invol짯ving VLSI Tech짯no짯lo짯gy LLC (VLSI). An unfa짯vorable ruling can include mone짯ta짯ry dama짯ges or an injunc짯tion pro짯hi짯bi짯ting us from manu짯fac짯tu짯ring or sel짯ling one or more pro짯ducts, pre짯clu짯ding par짯ti짯cu짯lar busi짯ness prac짯ti짯ces, impac짯ting our abili짯ty to design pro짯ducts, or requi짯ring other reme짯dies such as com짯pul짯so짯ry licen짯sing of intellec짯tu짯al property.

In addi짯ti짯on, the짯se tran짯sac짯tions do not always achie짯ve our finan짯cial or stra짯te짯gic objec짯ti짯ves and can dis짯rupt our ongo짯ing busi짯ness and adver짯se짯ly impact our results of ope짯ra짯ti짯ons.

We deri짯ve a sub짯stan짯ti짯al majo짯ri짯ty of our reve짯nue from plat짯form pro짯ducts, which are our prin짯ci짯pal pro짯ducts and con짯side짯red as one pro짯duct class. We offer plat짯form pro짯ducts that incor짯po짯ra짯te various com짯pon짯ents and tech짯no짯lo짯gies, inclu짯ding a micro짯pro짯ces짯sor and chip짯set, a stand-alo짯ne SoC, or a mul짯ti짯chip packa짯ge based on Intel archi짯tec짯tu짯re. Plat짯form pro짯ducts are used in various form fac짯tors across our CCG, DCG, and IOTG ope짯ra짯ting seg짯ments. Our non-plat짯form, or adja짯cent pro짯ducts, can be com짯bi짯ned with plat짯form pro짯ducts to form com짯pre짯hen짯si짯ve plat짯form solu짯ti짯ons to meet cus짯to짯mer needs.

Reve짯nue for our repor짯ta짯ble and non-repor짯ta짯ble ope짯ra짯ting seg짯ments is pri짯ma짯ri짯ly rela짯ted to the fol짯lo짯wing pro짯duct lines:

Expl짯ana짯ti짯on of Non-GAAP Measures

In addi짯ti짯on to dis짯clo짯sing finan짯cial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this docu짯ment con짯ta짯ins refe짯ren짯ces to the non-GAAP finan짯cial mea짯su짯res below. We belie짯ve the짯se non-GAAP finan짯cial mea짯su짯res pro짯vi짯de inves짯tors with useful sup짯ple짯men짯tal infor짯ma짯ti짯on about our ope짯ra짯ting per짯for짯mance, enable com짯pa짯ri짯son of finan짯cial trends and results bet짯ween peri짯ods whe짯re cer짯tain items may vary inde짯pen짯dent of busi짯ness per짯for짯mance, and allow for grea짯ter trans짯pa짯ren짯cy with respect to key metrics used by manage짯ment in ope짯ra짯ting our busi짯ness and mea짯su짯ring our per짯for짯mance. Cer짯tain of the짯se non-GAAP finan짯cial mea짯su짯res are used in our per짯for짯mance-based RSUs and our annu짯al cash bonus plan.

Our non-GAAP finan짯cial mea짯su짯res reflect adjus짯t짯ments based on one or more of the fol짯lo짯wing items, as well as the rela짯ted inco짯me tax effects whe짯re appli짯ca짯ble. Inco짯me tax effects have been cal짯cu짯la짯ted using an appro짯pria짯te tax rate for each adjus짯t짯ment. The짯se non-GAAP finan짯cial mea짯su짯res should not be con짯side짯red a sub짯sti짯tu짯te for, or supe짯ri짯or to, finan짯cial mea짯su짯res cal짯cu짯la짯ted in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and the finan짯cial results cal짯cu짯la짯ted in accordance with U.S. GAAP and recon짯ci짯lia짯ti짯ons from the짯se results should be careful짯ly evaluated.

NAND memo짯ry business Our NAND memo짯ry busi짯ness is sub짯ject to a pen짯ding sale to SK hynix, as announ짯ced in Octo짯ber 2020. We exclude the impact of our NAND memo짯ry busi짯ness in cer짯tain non-GAAP mea짯su짯res becau짯se the짯se adjus짯t짯ments reflect how manage짯ment curr짯ent짯ly views the core ope짯ra짯ti짯ons of the com짯pa짯ny. While the sale of the NAND memo짯ry busi짯ness is still pen짯ding and sub짯ject to clo짯sing con짯di짯ti짯ons, manage짯ment does not curr짯ent짯ly view the busi짯ness as part of the company셲 core ope짯ra짯ti짯ons or its long-term stra짯te짯gic direc짯tion. We belie짯ve the짯se adjus짯t짯ments pro짯vi짯de inves짯tors with a useful view, through the eyes of manage짯ment, of the company셲 core busi짯ness model and how manage짯ment curr짯ent짯ly eva짯lua짯tes core ope짯ra짯tio짯nal per짯for짯mance.

In making the짯se adjus짯t짯ments, we have not made any chan짯ges to our methods for mea짯su짯ring and cal짯cu짯la짯ting reve짯nue or other finan짯cial state짯ment amounts.

Amor짯tiza짯ti짯on char짯ges are recor짯ded over the esti짯ma짯ted useful life of the rela짯ted acqui짯red intan짯gi짯ble asset, and thus are gene짯ral짯ly recor짯ded over mul짯ti짯ple years.

Gains (los짯ses) from divestiture Gains or los짯ses are reco짯gni짯zed at the clo짯se of a divestiture.

We exclude the짯se ongo짯ing gains and los짯ses for pur짯po짯ses of cal짯cu짯la짯ting cer짯tain non-GAAP mea짯su짯res becau짯se we do not belie짯ve this vola짯ti짯li짯ty cor짯re짯la짯tes to our core ope짯ra짯tio짯nal per짯for짯mance.
