       NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
       ----------------------------------------------------

     1.  The results of operations for the interim periods shown in this report
         are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the fiscal
         year.  In the opinion of management, the information contained herein
         reflects all adjustments necessary to make the results of operations
         for the interim periods a fair statement of such operations.  All such
         adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.

         The Company uses a 52 to 53 week fiscal year ending on the last Sunday
         in December. The quarters ended June 30, 1996 and July 2, 1995 included
         13 weeks. The six months ended June 30, 1996 and July 2, 1995 included
         26 and 27 weeks, respectively.
 
         Certain prior year amounts on the Condensed Consolidated Financial
         Statements have been reclassified to conform to the 1996 presentation.

         As of June 30, 1996, the Company held $11.8 million of available-for-
         sale equity securities with a fair value of $17.8 million which are
         included in other assets. The net unrealized gain on these equity
         securities is included in retained earnings. During the second quarter
         and first six months of 1996, the Company sold a portion of its
         available-for-sale equity securities and realized pre-tax gains of
         $16.3 million and $41.0 million, respectively.

     3.  The primary net income per common share computation is based on the
         weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus dilutive
         common share equivalents. The primary net loss per common share
         computation excludes common share equivalents as their effect on the
         net loss per share would be anti-dilutive.  In the first quarter of
         1995, the Company called for redemption of all outstanding shares of
         its Convertible Preferred Stock.  As a result, all of its outstanding
         preferred stock was either redeemed or converted to the Company's
         common stock.  Shares used in the per share computations are as
         follows:

                 ----------------------------------

     CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
     ---------------------------------------------------------

     The statements in this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of
     Operations and Financial Condition that are forward looking are based on
     current expectations and beliefs and involve numerous risks and
     uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. The
     forward looking statements include estimates of 1996 gross margin,
     operating results, capital expenditures and adequacy of resources to fund
     operations and capital investments; the planned sale of the Senior Secured
     Notes (as defined below); the description of the New Credit Agreement (as
     defined below); future business prospects for microprocessors, Flash memory
     device products and other product lines; the development, validation,
     certification, introduction, market acceptance and pricing of the K86(TM)
     products; the impact of the Company's acquisition of NexGen, Inc. (NexGen);
     the Company's commitment to research and development; the planned build-
     out of Fab 25; external financing plans and financial instruments; and the
     proposed Dresden and FASL II manufacturing facilities. FASL II is the
     second Flash memory device wafer fabrication facility to be built by the
     Company's manufacturing joint venture with Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu AMD
     Semiconductor Limited ("FASL"). See "Financial Condition" and "Risk
     Factors" below, as well as such other risks and uncertainties as are
     detailed in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission reports and
     filings for a discussion of the factors that could cause the actual results
     to differ materially from the forward looking statements.

     The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the attached
     Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto, and with the
     Company's Supplemental Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto
     at December 31, 1995 and December 25, 1994, and for each of the three years
     in the period ended December 31, 1995.  On January 17, 1996, the Company
     acquired NexGen in a transaction accounted for as a pooling-of-interests.
     All financial data and footnote information of the Company, including the
     Company's previously issued financial statements for the periods discussed
     herein, have been restated to give retroactive effect to the merger with
     NexGen.

     RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
     ---------------------
     Net sales were $455.1 million for the second quarter of 1996 as compared to
     $638.9 million for the same period in 1995 and $544.2 million for the first
     quarter of 1996.  For the six month period ended June 30, 1996, net sales
     decreased to $999.3 million from $1,266.2 million for the comparable period
     in 1995.  Net sales decreased in the second quarter of 1996 and for the six
     month period ended June 30, 1996 as compared to the corresponding periods
     in 1995 primarily due to a decline in Am486(R) microprocessor sales, as 
     both unit volume and average selling prices decreased significantly. Net
     sales in the second quarter of 1996 decreased from the immediately prior
     quarter primarily due to a decline in Flash memory device sales, as both
     unit volume and average selling prices declined, and secondarily due to a
     continued decline in Am486 microprocessor sales caused by a continued
     decline in average selling prices.

     Communications and Components Group ("CCG") net sales were $290.1 million
     for the second quarter of 1996 as compared to $279.4 million for the same
     period in 1995 and $348.3 million for the first quarter of 1996.  For the
     six month period ended June 30, 1996, CCG net sales increased to $638.5
     million from $535.1 million for the comparable period in 1995.  CCG net
     sales increased in the second quarter of 1996 as compared to the same
     period in 1995 due to higher unit shipments of communications products.
     CCG net sales in the second quarter of 1996 decreased from the immediately
     prior quarter primarily due to sales declines in Flash memory devices,
     which constitute a significant portion of CCG net sales, and secondarily
     due to a decline in unit shipments of other CCG products, slightly offset
     by increases in sales of  SLIC and SLAC(TM) devices.  CCG net sales 
     increased in the six month period ended June 30, 1996 as compared to the
     corresponding period in 1995 due to increased unit shipments of Flash
     memory devices and communications products.  The market for the Company's
     Flash memory devices in 1996 has been characterized by increasing
     competition from all major manufacturers, falling prices, and weak unit
     demand.  There can be no assurance that these trends will not continue or
     accelerate.

     Programmable Logic Division ("PLD") net sales were $61.6 million for the
     second quarter of 1996 as compared to $61.4 million for the same period in
     1995 and $69.6 million for the first quarter of 1996.  For the six month
     period ended June 30, 1996, PLD net sales increased to $131.1 million from
     $118.8 million for the comparable period in 1995.  PLD net sales in the
     second quarter of 1996 decreased from the immediately prior quarter due to
     decreased unit shipments and declines in average selling prices,
     principally involving simple programmable logic devices.  The Company
     believes this decline is attributable to decreased market demand in the
     simple and complex programmable logic market.  Net sales in the six month
     period ended June 30, 1996 increased as compared to the corresponding
     period in 1995 due to increased unit shipments of complex programmable
     logic devices, which have higher average selling prices than simple
     programmable logic devices.

                                       10

     Computation Products Group ("CPG") net sales were $103.4 million for the
     second quarter of 1996 as compared to $298.1 million for the same period in
     1995 and $126.3 million for the first quarter of 1996. For the six month
     period ended June 30, 1996, CPG net sales decreased to $229.7 million from
     $612.4 million for the comparable period in 1995. The decline in CPG net
     sales was in each case due to increased market acceptance of higher
     performance fifth generation microprocessors from Intel Corporation,
     coupled with the Company's delay in introducing competitive fifth
     generation microprocessors. The market for fourth generation micro-
     processors, including the Company's Am486 microprocessor, has continued to
     decline as the product life cycle is ending and the Company anticipates
     that the decline in Am486 microprocessor unit demand and average selling
     prices will continue and may accelerate during the remainder of 1996. The
     Company's fifth generation microprocessor, the AMD-K5(TM) microprocessor,
     was introduced relatively late in the life cycle of fifth generation
     products. As such, the Company believes the AMD-K5 microprocessor will be a
     transitional product and will be unlikely to result in the levels of
     revenues for the Company achieved by the Am486 microprocessor. The Company
     believes that the success of the Company's fifth generation microprocessor
     products during the remainder of 1996 will depend on market acceptance of
     the Company's 100 megahertz ("MHz") AMD-K5 product and the ability of the
     Company to develop and introduce on a timely basis subsequent higher
     performance fifth generation microprocessors. The Company does not expect
     any sales of the AMD-K6(TM) products in 1996. The Company intends to begin
     volume shipments of the AMD-K6 products in the first half of 1997, although
     no assurance can be made that such shipments will occur.

     Gross margins were 17 percent for the second quarter of 1996 as compared to
     51 percent for the same period in 1995 and 32 percent for the first quarter
     of 1996.  For the six month period ended June 30, 1996, gross margins
     decreased to 25 percent from 51 percent for the comparable period in 1995.
     The decline in gross margins was in each case due to lower sales,
     underutilization of the Company's high fixed cost production facilities,
     particularly at its newest manufacturing facility, located in Austin, Texas
     ("Fab 25"), and provisions against higher than expected Flash memory device
     inventory levels. These factors may contribute to further declines in gross
     margins during the remainder of 1996.

     Research and development expenses were $92.8 million for the second quarter
     of 1996 as compared to $105.7 million for the same period in 1995 and $94.8
     million for the first quarter of 1996. For the six month period ended June
     30, 1996, research and development expenses decreased to $187.5 million
     from $202.6 million for the comparable period in 1995. The decline in
     research and development expenses was in each case due to a
     recategorization of Fab 25 expenses from research and development to cost
     of sales as Fab 25 commenced production in the third quarter of 1995.

     Marketing, general and administrative expenses were $83.1 million for the
     second quarter of 1996 as compared to $106.6 million for the same period in
     1995 and $103.0 million for the first quarter of 1996.  For the six month
     period ended June 30, 1996, marketing, general and administrative expenses
     decreased to $186.1 million from $209.3 million for the comparable period
     in 1995.  Marketing, general and administrative expenses in the second
     quarter of 1996 decreased from the immediately prior quarter primarily due
     to non-recurring costs associated with the 

                                       11

<PAGE>
 
     NexGen merger in the first quarter of 1996. The decline in marketing,
     general and administrative expenses was in each other case due to the
     cessation of promotional expenses associated with NexGen's products, which
     the Company no longer offers.

     The Company incurred operating losses of $100.5 million for the second
     quarter of 1996 as compared to operating income of $110.7 million for the
     same period in 1995 and operating losses of $22.3 million for the first
     quarter of 1996.  For the six month period ended June 30, 1996, operating
     losses were $122.8 million as compared to operating income of $232.8
     million for the comparable period in 1995. The decline in operating income
     was in each case due to lower sales and underutilization of the Company's
     high fixed cost production facilities, particularly Fab 25. The Company can
     give no assurance of any improvement in its operating results in the third
     quarter of 1996.

     Interest income and other, net was $23.0 million for the second quarter of
     1996 as compared to $7.0 million for the same period in 1995 and $28.1
     million for the first quarter of 1996.  For the six month period ended June
     30, 1996, interest income and other, net increased to $51.1 million from
     $14.0 million for the comparable period in 1995. The Company's quarter and
     six-month results for the periods ended June 30, 1996 include pre-tax gains
     of $16.3 million and $41.0 million, respectively, resulting from the sales
     of equity investments.

     Interest expense was $1.8 million for the second quarter of 1996 as
     compared to $0.5 million for the same period in 1995 and $2.0 million for
     the first quarter of 1996.  For the six month period ended June 30, 1996,
     interest expense increased to $3.8 million from $1.1 million for the
     comparable period in 1995.  Interest expense increased in all periods of
     1996 from 1995 due to lower capitalized interest mainly related to the
     completion of the first phase of construction of Fab 25.

     During the second quarter of 1996, the Company recorded a tax credit of
     $31.7 million. This results in an effective tax rate (benefit) of
     approximately 40 percent for the quarter and year-to-date reflecting the
     benefit of operating loss carrybacks to prior years. The income tax rate
     was 33 percent in both the second quarter and the first six months of 1995.

     The Company incurred net losses of $34.7 million, or $0.26 per share, for
     the second quarter of 1996 as compared to net income of $80.7 million, or
     $0.59 per share fully diluted, for the same period in 1995 and net income
     of $25.3 million, or $0.18 per share fully diluted, for the first quarter
     of 1996.  For the six month period ended June 30, 1996, net losses were
     $9.3 million, or $0.07 per share, as compared to net income of $165.0
     million, or $1.21 per share fully diluted, for the comparable period in
     1995.

     International sales were 53 percent of net sales in the second quarter of
     1996 as compared to 58 percent for the same period in 1995 and 52 percent
     for the first quarter of 1996. For the six month period ended June 30,
     1996, international sales 

                                       12

<PAGE>
 
     decreased to 52 percent of net sales from 57 percent for the comparable
     period in 1995. Approximately 17 percent of the Company's net sales were
     denominated in foreign currencies in the first six months of 1996. The
     Company does not have sales denominated in local currencies in those
     countries which have highly inflationary economies. (A highly inflationary
     economy is defined in accordance with the Statement of Financial Accounting
     Standards No. 52 as one in which the cumulative inflation over a three-year
     consecutive period approximates 100 percent or more.) The impact on the
     Company's operating results from changes in foreign currency rates
     individually and in the aggregate has not been material.

     The Company enters into foreign exchange forward contracts to buy and sell
     currencies as economic hedges of the Company's foreign net monetary asset
     position including the Company's liabilities for products purchased from
     FASL. In 1995 and 1996, these hedging transactions were denominated in
     lira, yen, French franc, Deutsche mark, and pound sterling. The maturities
     of these contracts are generally short-term in nature. The Company believes
     its foreign exchange contracts do not subject the Company to material risk
     from exchange rate movements because gains and losses on these contracts
     are designed to offset losses and gains on the net monetary asset position
     being hedged. Net foreign currency gains and losses have not been material.
     As of June 30, 1996, the Company had approximately $36.5 million (notional
     amount) of foreign exchange forward contracts as compared to $72.8 million
     at March 31, 1996.

     The Company has engaged in interest rate swaps primarily to reduce its
     interest rate exposure by changing a portion of the Company's interest rate
     obligation from a floating rate to a fixed rate basis.  At June 30, 1996,
     the net outstanding notional amount of interest rate swaps was $165.0
     million, of which $125.0 million will mature in 1996 and $40.0 million will
     mature in 1997.  Gains and losses related to these interest rate swaps have
     been immaterial.

     The Company primarily addresses market risk by participating as an end user
     in various derivative markets to manage its exposure to interest and
     foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.  The counterparties to the
     Company's foreign exchange forward contracts and interest rate swaps
     consist of a number of major, high credit quality, international financial
     institutions.  The Company does not believe that there is significant risk
     of nonperformance by these counterparties because the Company monitors the
     credit ratings of such counterparties, and reduces the financial exposure
     by limiting the amount of agreements entered into with any one financial
     institution.

     FINANCIAL CONDITION
     -------------------

     The Company's working capital balance decreased to $404.6 million at June
     30, 1996 from $480.2 million at March 31, 1996 and from $461.5 million at
     December 31, 1995 primarily due to continued capital spending, particularly
     on Fab 25.  The Company's operations required the use of $50.0 million in
     cash for the six months ended June 30, 1996.  The Company's cash, cash
     equivalents and short-term investments balance was approximately $281.7
     million at June 30, 1996 compared to $409.3 million at March 31, 1996 and
     $509.7 million at December 31, 1995.

     The Company's capital investments and its recent operating performance have
     resulted in significant negative cash flow and the Company anticipates
     negative cash flow through the remainder of 1996. The Company is continuing
     to make substantial capital investments in its process technology and
     manufacturing capacity based, in part, upon Company and industry
     projections regarding future growth in the market for integrated circuits.
     The Company plans to continue to make significant capital investments
     through the remainder of 1996, including an estimated $215.0 million for
     Fab 25 and $75.0 million related to the proposed Dresden submicron
     integrated circuit manufacturing facility, as described below. During the
     six months ended June 30, 1996, the Company made capital investments of
     approximately $108.0 million in Fab 25.

     The Company is currently planning to construct an 875,000 square foot
     submicron integrated circuit manufacturing and design facility in Dresden,
     in the State of Saxony, Germany (the "Dresden Facility") over the next five
     years at a presently estimated cost in Deutsche marks equivalent to
     approximately $1.5 billion (under current exchange rates). It is presently
     intended that the Dresden Facility will be dedicated to the production of
     microprocessors and other advanced logic products. The governments of the
     Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Saxony have agreed to provide
     financing assistance for the Dresden Facility through grants and allowances
     in Deutsche marks in an aggregate amount equivalent to approximately $350.0
     million at current exchange rates, interest subsidies in Deutsche marks in
     an aggregate amount equivalent to approximately $200.0 million at current
     exchange rates, and loan guarantees. Between 1996 and 1999, AMD currently
     intends to invest in the Dresden Facility, through a wholly owned
     subsidiary or through a wholly owned intermediate holding company, as
     appropriate (the "German Subsidiary"), an aggregate amount in Deutsche
     marks which is equivalent to approximately $350.0 million at current
     exchange rates; of this amount, the Deutsche mark equivalent of $150.0
     million would be invested in the form of equity and approximately $200.0
     million would be invested in the form of equity or subordinated loans. The
     German Subsidiary will construct, own and operate the Dresden Facility, but
     the Company, as sole shareholder of the German Subsidiary, will control it.
     The German Subsidiary has signed an agreement to acquire the land necessary
     to commence construction of the Dresden Facility for a purchase price in
     Deutsche marks in an amount equivalent to approximately $10.0 million at
     current exchange rates. The parcel consists of approximately 120 acres.

                                       14

<PAGE>
 
     The German Subsidiary is expected to incur substantial project-related debt
     in the form of a syndicated Deutsche mark bank loan in an aggregate amount
     up to approximately $1.1 billion at current exchange rates, the terms of
     which loan are currently under discussion with Dresdner Bank AG, as agent
     for the prospective lenders.  No commitment has been issued by Dresdner
     Bank AG regarding the syndicated loan.  This loan will be secured by the
     Dresden Facility and substantially all of the German Subsidiary's other
     assets, will be guaranteed as to payment of 65 percent of the principal and
     interest by the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Saxony and
     will be nonrecourse to the Company. The Company will pledge all of the
     shares of the German Subsidiary to Dresdner Bank AG in connection with the
     syndicated loan. The Company will commit to provide the German Subsidiary
     an additional $100.0 million to $150.0 million, depending on the outcome of
     negotiations with Dresdner Bank AG, for the German Subsidiary's use with
     respect to the German Subsidiary's syndicated loan obligations. This
     obligation will expire once the Dresden Facility is completed, after which
     time the Company has been requested by Dresdner Bank AG to make available
     up to $100.0 million for the German Subsidiary to draw upon should it fail
     to meet certain financial covenants. Assuming successful completion of
     negotiations, it is currently expected that the initial draw down on the
     loan will be made in 1997. Construction of the Dresden Facility is expected
     to commence in the first half of 1997 and initial volume production is
     planned to begin in 1999.

     The Company is currently negotiating substantially all of the agreements
     relating to the construction, operation and financing of the Dresden
     Facility.  It is presently expected that such agreements will be finalized
     during the fourth quarter of 1996.  The negotiations presently contemplate
     that, in addition to the obligations discussed above, the Company (directly
     or indirectly) may be required to agree to (1) return all federal and state
     government grants, allowances and interest subsidies, or replace all such
     subsidies that are not made available, if the Company or the German
     Subsidiary fails to meet certain material obligations to the Federal
     Republic of Germany or the State of Saxony; (2) purchase the output of the
     Dresden Facility at transfer prices to be set pursuant to specific
     formulas, except where the Dresden Facility is operating at less than 75%
     capacity because of a lack of market demand for the products being
     fabricated there (the Company's product purchase obligation can be
     terminated once the syndicated loan has been repaid or under circumstances
     relating to a change of control of the German Subsidiary or the destruction
     or abandonment of the Dresden Facility); (3) cause the German Subsidiary to
     undertake bona fide research and development activities at the design
     center of the Dresden Facility; (4) grant a non-exclusive license to the
     German Subsidiary to use, at the Dresden Facility and in products
     manufactured at the Dresden Facility, intellectual property developed at
     the Dresden design center; and (5) make equity contributions or
     subordinated loans to the German Subsidiary to fund cost overruns,
     exceeding certain amounts, in constructing the Dresden Facility.

     In the event AMD agrees to purchase products from the German Subsidiary,
     the Indenture ("Indenture") under which Senior Secured Notes of the Company
     will be issued as described below provides that such purchases must occur
     at prices that 

                                       15

<PAGE>
 
     would provide the Company with a minimum contribution margin as defined in
     the Indenture.

     No assurance can be given that the Company will be able to negotiate final
     agreements relating to the construction, operation and financing of the
     Dresden Facility on terms satisfactory to it, that the terms of any such
     agreements will not be materially different from those described, or that
     the financial exposure of the Company in connection with the Dresden
     Facility will not materially exceed the proposed terms described herein.
     Certain terms in the Indenture limit the amount and timing of the Company's
     investments in the German Subsidiary.

     The Company's total cash investment in FASL was $160.4 million at the end
     of  the second quarter of 1996 and at the end of 1995.  No additional cash
     investment is currently planned for the remainder of 1996.  In March of
     1996, FASL began construction of FASL II at a site contiguous to the
     existing FASL facility in Aizu-Wakamatsu, Japan. The facility is expected
     to cost approximately $1.1 billion when fully equipped.  Capital
     expenditures for FASL II construction are expected to be funded by the cash
     anticipated to be generated from FASL operations and, if necessary, bank
     borrowings by FASL.  However, in the event that FASL is unable to secure
     the necessary funds for FASL II, AMD may be required to contribute cash or
     guarantee third-party loans in proportion to its percentage interest in
     FASL. The planned FASL II costs are denominated in yen and, therefore, are
     subject to change due to foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

     The Company is currently offering for sale $400.0 million of Senior Secured
     Notes (the "Offering") due August 1, 2003 under its shelf registration
     statement declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on
     May 17, 1994. The Offering is being underwritten by Donaldson, Lufkin &
     Jenrette Securities Corporation and BA Securities, Inc. It is presently
     anticipated that the closing of the Offering will occur during the week of
     August 12, 1996. Upon the sale of the Senior Secured Notes, the Company
     will have fully utilized its existing shelf registration statement.
     Interest on the Senior Secured Notes will accrue at the rate of 11 percent
     per annum and will be payable semi-annually in arrears on February 1 and
     August 1 of each year, commencing February 1, 1997. Except as described
     under "Asset Sales, Collateral Asset Sales and Events of Loss" and "Change
     of Control" in the Indenture under which the Senior Secured Notes will be
     issued, the Company will not be required to make mandatory redemption or
     sinking fund payments with respect to the Senior Secured Notes. The Senior
     Secured Notes will not be redeemable at the Company's option prior to
     August 1, 2001. Thereafter, the Senior Secured Notes will be subject to
     redemption at the option of the Company, in whole or in part, at a premium.

     On July 19, 1996, the Company entered into an agreement, which was amended
     on August 7, 1996, with three commercial banks which provides for a new
     $400.0 million term loan and revolving credit facility which will become
     available concurrently with the sale of the Senior Secured Notes (as
     amended, the "New Credit Agreement"). Prior to January 1, 1997 the
     Indenture will limit the aggregate borrowings which can be made under the
     New Credit Agreement to $250.0 million. The New Credit Agreement will
     replace the Company's existing unsecured, and currently unused, $250.0
     million line of credit and its unsecured $150.0 million four-year term
     loan. The Company will use a portion of the proceeds of the Offering to
     repay the existing $150.0 million term loan. The New Credit Agreement
     provides for a $150.0 million three-year secured revolving line of credit
     (which can be extended for one additional year, subject to

                                         16

<PAGE>
 
     approval of the lending banks) and a $250.0 million four-year secured term
     loan which is available to the Company for a period of six months after the
     effective date of the New Credit Agreement (July 19, 1996) and which the
     Company expects to utilize fully. Borrowings under the New Credit Agreement
     are subject to the issuance of the Senior Secured Notes among other
     conditions. The Senior Secured Notes and borrowings under the New Credit
     Agreement will be secured by one or more deeds of trust and security
     agreements representing a first priority security interest, subject to the
     terms of an intercreditor and collateral agency agreement between the bank
     lenders under the New Credit Agreement and the Indenture Trustee under the
     Indenture pursuant to which the Senior Secured Notes will be issued, in
     substantially all of the Company's real property, plant and equipment at
     Fab 25 and ancillary buildings.

     Assuming consummation of the Offering, the net proceeds to the Company from
     the Offering, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and
     estimated expenses of the Offering, are expected to be approximately $389.0
     million.  The Company intends to use $150.0 million of the net proceeds to
     repay its existing four-year term bank loan which matures on January 5,
     1999.  The Company expects to use the balance of the net proceeds of
     approximately $238.5 million for general corporate purposes.

     As of June 30, 1996, the Company's available financial resources were (i)
     $281.7 million of cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments, (ii)
     unsecured committed bank lines of credit of $250.0 million, and (iii)
     short-term, unsecured uncommitted bank credit in the amount of $80.0
     million.

     Assuming consummation of the Offering and following the intended use of
     $150.0 million of the net proceeds to repay the Company's existing $150.0
     million four-year term loan, the Company's available financial resources,
     as of June 30, 1996, would consist on a pro forma basis of (i) $520.2
     million of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, (ii) the
     undrawn $150.0 million three-year secured and revolving line of credit
     discussed above, (iii) the undrawn $250.0 million secured term loan
     discussed above, and (iv) short-term, unsecured uncommitted bank credit in
     the amount of $80.0 million.

     The Company's current capital plan and requirements are based on the
     availability of financial resources and various product-mix, selling-price,
     and unit-demand assumptions and are, therefore, subject to revision.

     The Company's present business plan envisions substantial outlays requiring
     external capital financing which the Company intends to obtain from the
     proceeds of the sale of the Senior Secured Notes and borrowings under the
     New Credit Agreement.  If the 

                                       17

<PAGE>
 
     sale of the Senior Secured Notes is not consummated, the credit facilities
     provided for in the New Credit Agreement will not become available to the
     Company. There can be no assurance that the sale of the Senior Secured
     Notes will be consummated. Failure to obtain the requisite external capital
     financing could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     The Company believes that current cash balances, together with cash flows,
     including anticipated external financing provided by the Offering and the
     New Credit Agreement, will be sufficient to fund operations and capital
     investments currently planned for the remainder of 1996.


     RISK FACTORS
     ------------

     The Company's business, results of operations and financial condition are
     subject to the following risk factors:


     Microprocessor Products

     Intel Dominance. Intel Corporation ("Intel") has long held a dominant
     position in the market for microprocessors used in personal computers
     ("PCs"). Intel's dominant market position has to date allowed it to set x86
     microprocessor standards and thus dictate the type of product the market
     requires of Intel's competitors. In addition, Intel's financial strength
     has enabled it to reduce prices on its microprocessor products within a
     short period of time following their introduction, which reduces the
     margins and profitability of its competitors. AMD believes that the process
     technologies used in the fabrication of the Company's microprocessors are
     currently somewhat behind those of Intel. The Company expects Intel to
     continue to invest heavily in research and development and new manufac-
     turing facilities and to maintain its dominant position through
     advertising campaigns designed to engender brand loyalty to Intel among PC
     purchasers. In addition to its dominant microprocessor market share, Intel
     also dominates the PC platform in other manners. For example, Intel has
     obtained a dominant market share in sales of 64-bit or Pentium-class core
     logic chip sets, has emerged as the world's largest motherboard
     manufacturer, has become a significant manufacturer of personal computers,
     incorporating Intel microprocessors, chip sets, motherboards and other
     Intel-designed components for resale by third-party original equipment
     manufacturers ("OEMs") under such OEMs' names, and has purchased an equity
     interest in Phoenix Technologies Ltd., a company which has a significant
     share of the market for BIOS software (basic input/output system software
     encoded in read-only memory which controls access to devices connected to a
     PC, such as the monitor and the serial communications port).  The Company
     does not have the financial resources to compete with Intel on such a large
     scale. As long as Intel remains in this dominant position, its product
     introduction 

                                       18

<PAGE>
 
     schedule, product pricing strategy and customer brand loyalty may continue
     to have a material adverse effect on the Company, as they have had in the
     past.

     As Intel has expanded its role in designing and setting standards for PC
     systems, many PC OEMs have reduced their system development expenditures
     and have begun to purchase microprocessors in conjunction with chip sets or
     in assembled motherboards. In marketing its microprocessors to these OEMs
     and dealers, AMD is dependent upon companies other than Intel for the
     design and manufacture of core-logic chip sets, motherboards, BIOS software
     and other components. In recent years, these third-party designers and
     manufacturers have lost market share to Intel. In addition, these companies
     are able to produce chip sets, motherboards, BIOS software and other
     components to support each new generation of Intel's microprocessors only
     to the extent that Intel makes its related proprietary technology
     available. Any delay in the availability of such technologies would make it
     increasingly difficult for them to retain or regain market share. To
     compete with Intel in this market in 1996 and beyond, the Company intends
     to form closer relationships with third-party designers and manufacturers
     of core-logic chip sets, motherboards, BIOS software and other components,
     expand its chip set and system design capabilities, and sell a portion of
     the Company's processors along with chip sets and license system designs
     incorporating the Company's processors and products resulting from AMD's
     relationships with such third party designers and manufacturers to OEMs.
     There can be no assurance, however, that such efforts by the Company will
     be successful. The Company expects that as Intel introduces future
     generations of microprocessors, chip sets and motherboards, the design of
     chip sets and higher level board products which support Intel
     microprocessors will become increasingly dependent on the Intel
     microprocessor design and may become incompatible with non-Intel PC
     systems. If the infrastructure of third-party designers and manufacturers
     which supports non-Intel PC platforms were to fail to continue to support
     the Company's products or to offer products competitive with Intel's, the
     Company could experience difficulties marketing its microprocessors, which
     could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Dependence on New AMD Microprocessor Products. Am486 microprocessor
     products contributed a significant portion of AMD's revenues, profits and
     margins in 1994 and 1995. AMD expects Am486 microprocessor revenues,
     profits and margins in 1996 to be significantly below those of 1995. As the
     product life cycle of fourth-generation x86 products declines, AMD's
     ability to maintain or expand its current levels of revenues from
     microprocessor products, and its ability to benefit fully from the
     substantial financial commitments it has made to process technologies and
     integrated circuit manufacturing facilities dedicated to the production of
     microprocessors, will depend upon its success in developing and marketing
     in a timely manner its next generations of microprocessor products, the K86
     RISC Superscalar(TM) products. The Company recently began shipping its
     first K86 products including the 100 MHz AMD-K5 products which are designed
     to be competitive with the Pentium, Intel's fifth generation
     microprocessor. The Company anticipates

                                       19

<PAGE>
 
     that the AMD-K5 microprocessor, which was introduced relatively late in the
     life cycle of fifth generation microprocessor products, will be a
     transitional product, unlikely to result in the levels of revenue for the
     Company realized from the Am486 microprocessor. The Company's AMD-K5
     products have not, to date, achieved substantial market acceptance, which
     has had and continues to have a material adverse effect on the Company. The
     Company acquired NexGen, Inc. ("NexGen") in January 1996, in part, to
     accelerate the introduction of its microprocessor products, particularly
     its sixth generation products. The Company is modifying NexGen's sixth-
     generation design using AMD's design, verification and manufacturing
     technologies. With these changes, AMD intends to develop and produce the
     AMD-K6 microprocessor. AMD does not expect any sales of the AMD-K6 products
     in 1996. The Company intends to begin volume shipments of the AMD-K6
     products in the first half of 1997, although no assurance can be given that
     such shipments will occur. The Company's production and sales plans for K86
     microprocessors, including the AMD-K6 microprocessor, are subject to
     numerous risks and uncertainties, including the timing of the introduction
     of future AMD-K5 products and of AMD-K6 products, the possibility that
     volume shipments of the AMD-K6 may be delayed due to the time required to
     verify operating systems and application software compatibility, the
     development of market acceptance for the AMD-K5 and AMD-K6 products
     particularly with leading OEMs of PCs, the effects of marketing and pricing
     strategies adopted by Intel, the possible adverse effects of existing and
     future customer inventory levels, the pace at which the Company is able to
     ramp production of fifth and sixth generation microprocessors in Fab 25,
     the possibility that products newly introduced by the Company may be found
     to be defective, possible adverse conditions in the personal computer
     market and unexpected interruptions in the Company's manufacturing
     operations. A failure of the Company's K86 products, particularly the AMD-
     K6, to be timely introduced or to achieve market acceptance, would have a
     material adverse effect on the Company.

     Dependence on Market Acceptance of x86 Standard and Dominance of Windows.
     Customer acceptance of AMD's K86 products will depend upon the continued
     demand for x86-based personal computers, including the continued
     development of application software programs for such computers. There can
     be no assurance of the continued acceptance of the x86 standard or that
     software developers will continue to develop software compatible with this
     standard.  AMD's K86 products will face competition not only from x86
     products manufactured by Intel and others but also from products based upon
     an increasing number of different architectures which have been developed
     or are under development by Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Motorola, Silicon
     Graphics, Sun Microsystems, Digital Equipment Corporation and other
     manufacturers of integrated circuits. Several of these manufacturers, such
     as Motorola, Digital Equipment Corporation, Silicon Graphics and Sun
     Microsystems, produce microprocessors which are designed to be compatible
     with such operating systems as WindowsNT(R) and UNIX but not with 
     Windows(R). Currently, as a result of the dominance of the Windows
     operating system, which operates with x86 based PCs, AMD is able to market
     its microprocessors without significant competition from these
     manufacturers. AMD would lose much of this advantage if the Microsoft
     Windows operating system should be displaced as the dominant operating
     system software by one or more other systems, such as WindowsNT or UNIX. 
     A reduction 

                                       20

<PAGE>
 
     in the market acceptance of either the x86 standard or the Windows
     operating system could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Compatibility Certifications. For its future generations of K86 micro-
     processors, AMD intends to obtain Windows and Windows 95 certifications 
     from Microsoft and other appropriate certifications from recognized testing
     organizations. A failure to obtain certification from Microsoft would
     prevent the Company from describing and labeling its K86 microprocessors as
     Microsoft Windows compatible. This could substantially impair the Company's
     ability to market the products and could have a material adverse effect on
     the Company.

     Acquisition of NexGen. AMD believes that its acquisition of NexGen is
     important to the development and introduction of its K86 products,
     particularly the AMD-K6 microprocessor. Achieving the anticipated benefits
     of the acquisition will depend in part upon whether the integration of the
     two companies' businesses is accomplished in an efficient and effective
     manner, and there can be no assurance that this will occur. The inability
     of management to integrate the operations of the two companies successfully
     could have a material adverse effect on the Company. In addition, as
     commonly occurs with mergers of technology companies, aggressive
     competitors may undertake formal initiatives during the integration phase
     to attract customers and to recruit key employees through various
     incentives. AMD has acquired and is currently developing new technologies
     to manufacture its sixth generation microprocessor which will utilize
     NexGen's sixth generation design as modified by AMD. A costly
     reconfiguration of its facilities may be required to implement these new
     technologies. There can be no assurance that AMD will be successful in
     implementing these new technologies even with a reconfiguration of its
     facilities. If the new technologies cannot be successfully implemented or
     if AMD encounters other difficulties in manufacturing its sixth generation
     microprocessors, such an event would have a material adverse effect on the
     Company.

     Fluctuation in PC Market. Since most of AMD's microprocessor products are
     used in personal computers and related peripherals, AMD's future growth is
     closely tied to the performance of the PC industry. The Company could be
     materially and adversely affected by industry-wide fluctuations in the PC
     marketplace in the future.

     Possible Rights of Others. Prior to its acquisition by AMD, NexGen granted
     limited manufacturing rights regarding certain of its current and future
     microprocessors, including the Nx586(R) and Nx686(TM), to IBM and Compaq. 
     The Company does not intend to produce any NexGen products as it is the
     Company's position that its forthcoming AMD-K6 products are AMD products
     and not NexGen products. There can be no assurance that neither IBM nor
     Compaq will seek to establish rights with respect to the products. If
     either IBM or Compaq or both were deemed to have rights to produce AMD's
     AMD-K6 products for their own use and IBM were deemed to have the right to
     produce limited volumes of such products for sale to third parties, such
     production could reduce the potential market for microprocessor products

                                       21

<PAGE>
 
     produced by AMD, the profit margin achievable with respect to such
     products, or both.

     Manufacturing

     Underutilized Capacity. The Company's manufacturing facilities are
     currently underutilized as a result of reduced demand for certain of the
     Company's products and may remain so until the Company has developed new
     products and such products have achieved market acceptance. The Company's
     operations related to microprocessors are particularly affected by this
     situation. The underutilization of the Company's manufacturing facilities
     is having, and could continue to have, a material adverse effect on the
     Company. The Company plans to increase its manufacturing capacity by making
     significant capital investments in Fab 25 and in its German Subsidiary
     which will construct an integrated circuit manufacturing facility, which is
     presently intended to be dedicated to the production of microprocessors and
     other advanced logic products. In addition, FASL plans to construct a
     second Flash memory device manufacturing facility. There can be no
     assurance that the industry projections regarding future growth in the
     markets for integrated circuits upon which the Company is basing its
     strategy of increasing its manufacturing capacity will prove to be
     accurate. If demand for the Company's products does not increase, the
     underutilization of the Company's manufacturing facilities will likely
     increase and have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Process Technology. Manufacturers of integrated circuits are constantly
     seeking to improve the process technologies used to manufacture their
     products. In order to remain competitive, the Company must make continuing
     substantial investments in improving its process technologies. In
     particular, the Company has made and continues to make significant research
     and development investments in the technologies and equipment used in the
     fabrication of its microprocessor products and by FASL in the fabrication
     of Flash memory devices. Portions of these investments might not be
     recoverable if the Company's K86 microprocessors fail to gain market
     acceptance or if the market for its Flash memory products should
     significantly deteriorate. This could have a material adverse effect on the
     Company. In addition, any inability of the Company to remain competitive
     with respect to process technology could have a material adverse effect on
     the Company.

     Commitments to Facilities Dedicated to Specific Products. The Company has
     made and plans to continue to make substantial capital investments in
     integrated circuit manufacturing facilities dedicated to the production of
     specific product lines. AMD has invested over $860.0 million in the Fab 25
     integrated circuit manufacturing facility and ancillary buildings as of
     June 30, 1996, and currently expects to have invested over $1.2 billion by
     the end of 1997 and over $1.6 billion by the end of 1999, although the
     Company is not obligated to make such further investments. Fab 25 is
     currently dedicated to the production of Microsoft Windows compatible
     microprocessors. Other facilities of the Company are also dedicated to the
     production 

                                       22

<PAGE>
 
     of specific product lines. In addition, the Company's German Subsidiary
     currently plans to construct a semiconductor manufacturing facility, at an
     estimated cost of $1.5 billion over 5 years, which will be dedicated to the
     production of microprocessors. Significant time and expense would be
     incurred were the Company to alter any of its facilities so that they could
     be used to produce other integrated circuit products. Any such alteration,
     resulting from a need to respond to changes in the markets for the
     Company's products or otherwise, could have a material adverse effect on
     the Company.

     Manufacturing Constraints. While the Company's manufacturing facilities are
     currently underutilized, there have been situations in the past in which
     the Company's manufacturing facilities were inadequate to enable the
     Company to meet demand for certain of its products. In addition to having
     its own fabrication facilities, AMD has foundry arrangements for the
     production of its products by third parties. Any inability of AMD to
     generate sufficient manufacturing capabilities to meet demand, either in
     its own facilities or through foundry or similar arrangements with others,
     could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Manufacturing Interruptions. Any substantial interruption with respect to
     any of AMD's manufacturing operations, either as a result of a labor
     dispute, equipment failure or other cause, could have a material adverse
     effect on the Company. The Company may also be materially adversely
     affected by fluctuations in manufacturing yields.

     Essential Manufacturing Materials. Certain of the raw materials used by AMD
     in the manufacture of its products are available from a limited number of
     suppliers. For example, several types of the integrated circuit packages
     purchased by AMD, as well as by the majority of other companies in the
     semiconductor industry, are principally supplied by Japanese companies.
     Shortages could occur in various essential materials due to interruption of
     supply or increased demand in the industry. If AMD were unable to procure
     certain of such materials from any source, it would be required to reduce
     its manufacturing operations which could have a material adverse effect on
     the Company.

     International Manufacturing. Nearly all product assembly and final testing
     of AMD's products are performed at its manufacturing facilities in Penang,
     Malaysia; Singapore; and Bangkok, Thailand; or by subcontractors in Asia.
     Foreign manufacturing entails political and economic risks, including
     political instability, expropriation, currency controls and fluctuations,
     changes in freight and interest rates, and loss or modification of
     exemptions for taxes and tariffs. For example, if AMD were unable to
     assemble and test its products abroad, or if air transportation between the
     United States and AMD's overseas facilities were disrupted, there could be
     a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Other Risk Factors

     Debt Restrictions.   The New Credit Agreement contains, and the indenture
     to be entered into in connection with the sale of the Senior Secured Notes
     (the "Indenture") will contain, significant covenants that will limit the
     Company's and its subsidiaries' ability to engage in various transactions
     and, in certain cases, require satisfaction of specified financial
     performance criteria.  In addition, the occurrence of certain events
     (including, without limitation, failure to comply with the foregoing
     covenants, material inaccuracies of representations and warranties, certain
     defaults under or acceleration of other indebtedness and events of
     bankruptcy or insolvency) would, in certain cases after notice and grace
     periods, constitute events of default permitting acceleration of the
     indebtedness under the New Credit Agreement and the Indenture.  The
     limitations imposed by the New Credit Agreement and the Indenture will be
     substantial, and failure to comply with such limitations could have a
     material adverse effect on the Company.

     Importance of Flash Memory Device Business; Recent Pricing Weakness. The
     market for Flash memory devices has recently experienced rapid growth and
     is likely to become increasingly competitive as additional manufacturers
     introduce competitive products and production capacity in the industry
     increases. The Company's primary competition with respect to Flash memory
     devices is Intel. A substantial portion of the Company's revenues are
     derived from sales of Flash memory devices, and the Company expects that
     this will continue to be the case. In the first quarter of 1996, the
     Company experienced declines in the selling prices of Flash memory devices,
     and in the second quarter, both demand for the products and their selling
     prices declined. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to
     maintain its market share in Flash memory devices or that price declines
     may not accelerate as the market develops and as new competitors emerge. A
     decline in the Company's Flash memory device business could have a material
     adverse effect on the Company.

     Dependence on Third Party for PLD Software; Possible Acquisition by
     Competitor of Existing PLD Software Supplier. Customers utilizing
     programmable logic devices must use special software packages, generally
     provided by the suppliers of the programmable logic devices, to program the
     programmable logic devices. AMD currently provides its programmable logic
     device customers with software which it licenses from MINC, Inc. ("MINC"),
     an unaffiliated company, and is dependent upon MINC for the software and
     continuing improvements in the software. Recently, AMD has been advised
     orally by MINC that it intends to enter into an agreement to be acquired by
     one of the Company's major competitors in the market for programmable logic
     devices. Such an acquisition could have an adverse effect on the existing
     relationship between the Company and MINC, as a result of which the Company
     might seek to develop its own software internally or to license alternative
     software from another third party. No assurance can be given that the
     Company would be successful in either endeavor. An inability of AMD to
     continue to obtain appropriate software and improvements from MINC, to
     license alternative software from another third party, or to develop its
     own software internally could adversely affect AMD's PLD business,
     including the timing of new or improved product introductions, which could
     have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Technological Change and Industry Standards. The market for AMD's products
     is generally characterized by rapid technological developments, evolving
     industry standards, changes in customer requirements, frequent new product
     introductions and 

                                       24

<PAGE>
 
     enhancements, short product life cycles and severe price competition. The
     establishment of industry standards is a function of market acceptance.
     Currently accepted industry standards may change at any time. AMD's success
     depends substantially upon its ability, on a cost-effective and timely
     basis, to continue to enhance its existing products and to develop and
     introduce new products that take advantage of technological advances and
     adhere to evolving industry standards. An unexpected change in one or more
     of the technologies related to its products, in market demand for products
     based on a particular technology or in accepted industry standards could
     have a material adverse effect on the Company. There can be no assurance
     that AMD will be able to develop new products in a timely and satisfactory
     manner to address new industry standards and technological changes, or to
     respond to new product announcements by others, or that any such new
     products will achieve market acceptance.

     Product Incompatibility. While AMD submits its products to rigorous
     internal and external testing, there can be no assurance that AMD's
     products will be compatible with all industry standard software and
     hardware. Any inability of AMD's customers to achieve such compatibility 
     or compatibility with other software or hardware after AMD's products are
     shipped in volume could have a material adverse effect on the Company.
     There can be no assurance AMD will be successful in correcting any such
     compatibility problems that are discovered or that such corrections will be
     acceptable to customers or made in a timely manner. In addition, the mere
     announcement of an incompatibility problem relating to the Company's
     products could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Competition. The integrated circuit industry is intensely competitive and,
     historically, has experienced rapid technological advances in product and
     system technologies together with substantial price reductions in maturing
     products. After a product is introduced, prices normally decrease over time
     as production efficiency and competition increase, and a successive
     generation of products is developed and introduced for sale. Technological
     advances in the industry result in frequent product introductions, regular
     price reductions, short product life cycles and increased product
     capabilities that may result in significant performance improvements.
     Competition in the sale of integrated circuits is based upon performance,
     product quality and reliability, price, adherence to industry standards,
     software and hardware compatibility, marketing and distribution capability,
     brand recognition, financial strength and ability to deliver in large
     volumes on a timely basis.

     In each particular market in which it participates, the Company faces
     competition from different groups of companies. AMD, Fujitsu and Intel are
     the world's largest producers of Flash memory devices. Sharp and Atmel
     Corporation are also participants in the market. With respect to CCG's
     other product lines, the Company's primary competitors are: SGS Thomson and
     Texas Instruments with respect to EPROMs; Siemens, NEC, LM Erickson,
     Alcatel and other large producers of voice communications equipment with
     respect to line cards; National Semiconductor, 

                                       25

<PAGE>
 
     3Com and Intel with respect to networking products; and Motorola, Intel,
     Texas Instruments and SGS Thomson with respect to embedded processors. In
     PLD's market, the Company's principal competitors are Altera, Lattice
     Semiconductor and other smaller companies focused on programmable logic
     device development and production. With respect to microprocessors, Intel
     holds a dominant position which has to date allowed it to set x86
     microprocessor standards and thus dictate the type of product the market
     requires of Intel's competitors. See "--Microprocessor Products--Intel
     Dominance." The Company's principal competitors with respect to the network
     and I/O products include: National Semiconductor, Intel, 3Com, Digital
     Equipment Corporation, Fujitsu and Seeq with respect to Ethernet local area
     network products; and Western Digital and Hyundai with respect to SCSI disk
     host controllers.

     Fluctuations in Operating Results. AMD's operating results are subject to
     substantial quarterly and other fluctuations due to a variety of factors,
     including the effects of competition with Intel in the microprocessor
     industry, competitive pricing pressures, anticipated decreases in unit
     average selling prices of AMD's products, fluctuations in manufacturing
     yields, availability and cost of products from AMD's suppliers, the gain or
     loss of significant customers, new product introductions by AMD or its
     competitors, changes in the mix of products sold and in the mix of sales by
     distribution channels, market acceptance of new or enhanced versions of
     AMD's products, seasonal customer demand, the timing of significant orders
     and the timing and extent of product development costs. In addition,
     operating results could be adversely affected by general economic and other
     conditions affecting the timing of customer orders, a downturn in the
     market for PCs, and order cancellations or rescheduling. AMD's customers
     may change delivery schedules or cancel orders without significant penalty.
     Many of the factors listed above are outside of AMD's control. These
     factors are difficult to forecast, and these or other factors could
     materially adversely affect AMD's quarterly or annual operating results.

     Order Revision and Cancellation Policies. AMD manufactures and markets a
     standard line of products. Sales are made primarily pursuant to purchase
     orders for current delivery, or agreements covering purchases over a period
     of time, which are frequently subject to revision and cancellation without
     penalty. As a result, AMD must commit resources to the production of
     products without having received advance purchase commitments from
     customers. Any inability to sell products to which it had devoted
     significant resources could have a material adverse effect on the Company.
     Distributors typically maintain an inventory of AMD's products. Pursuant to
     the Company's agreements with the distributors, AMD protects its
     distributors' inventory of AMD's products against price reductions as well
     as products that are slow moving or have been discontinued. These
     agreements, which may be canceled by either party on a specified notice,
     generally contain a provision for the return of AMD's products in the event
     the agreement with the distributor is terminated. The price protection and
     return rights AMD offers to its distributors may materially adversely
     affect the Company.

                                       26

<PAGE>
 
     Key Personnel. AMD's future success depends upon the continued service of
     numerous key engineering, manufacturing, sales and executive personnel.
     There can be no assurance that AMD will be able to continue to attract and
     retain qualified personnel necessary for the development and manufacture of
     its products. Loss of the service of, or failure to recruit, key
     engineering design personnel could be significantly detrimental to AMD's
     product development programs or otherwise have a material adverse effect on
     the Company.

     Product Defects. One or more of AMD's products may possibly be found to be
     defective after AMD has already shipped such products in volume, requiring
     a product replacement, recall, or a software fix which would cure such
     defect but impede performance. Product returns could impose substantial
     costs on AMD and have a material adverse effect on the Company.

     Intellectual Property Rights; Potential Litigation. Although AMD attempts
     to protect its intellectual property rights through patents, copyrights,
     trade secrets and other measures, there can be no assurance that AMD will
     be able to protect its intellectual property adequately or that competitors
     will not be able to develop similar technology independently. There can be
     no assurance that any patent applications that AMD may file will be issued
     or that foreign intellectual property laws will protect AMD's intellectual
     property rights.  There can be no assurance that any patent licensed by or
     issued to AMD will not be challenged, invalidated or circumvented or that
     the rights granted thereunder will provide competitive advantages to AMD.
     Furthermore, there can be no assurance that others will not independently
     develop similar products, duplicate AMD's products or design around the
     patents issued to or licensed by AMD.

     From time to time, AMD has been notified that it may be infringing
     intellectual property rights of others. If any such claims are asserted
     against AMD, AMD may seek to obtain a license under the third party's
     intellectual property rights. AMD could decide, in the alternative, to
     resort to litigation to challenge such claims. Such challenges could be
     extremely expensive and time consuming and could materially adversely
     affect the Company. For example, for many years the Company was involved in
     intellectual property litigation with Intel which was settled in 1995. The
     litigation required substantial resources of the Company. No assurance can
     be given that all necessary licenses can be obtained on satisfactory terms,
     or that litigation may always be avoided or successfully concluded.

     Environmental Regulations. The failure to comply with present or future
     governmental regulations related to the use, storage, handling, discharge
     or disposal of toxic, volatile or otherwise hazardous chemicals used in the
     manufacturing process could result in fines being imposed on AMD,
     suspension of production, alteration of AMD's manufacturing processes or
     cessation of operations. Such regulations could require AMD to acquire
     expensive remediation equipment or to incur other expenses 

                                       27

<PAGE>
 
     to comply with environmental regulations. Any failure by AMD to control the
     use, disposal or storage of, or adequately restrict the discharge of,
     hazardous substances could subject AMD to future liabilities and could have
     a material adverse effect on the Company.

     International Sales. AMD derives a substantial portion of its revenues from
     its subsidiaries located in Europe and Asia. AMD's international sales
     operations entail political and economic risks, including expropriation,
     currency controls, exchange fluctuations, changes in freight rates and
     changes in rates for taxes and tariffs.

     Domestic and International Economic Conditions. AMD's business is subject
     to general economic conditions, both in the United States and abroad. A
     significant decline in economic conditions in any significant geographic
     area could have a material adverse effect upon the Company.

     Volatility of Stock Price; Ability to Access Capital. Based on the trading
     history of its stock, AMD believes factors such as quarterly fluctuations
     in AMD's financial results, announcements of new products by AMD or its
     competitors and general conditions in the semiconductor industry have
     caused and are likely to continue to cause the market price of AMD common
     stock to fluctuate substantially. Technology company stocks in general have
     experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that often have been
     unrelated to the operating performance of the companies. This market
     volatility may adversely affect the market price of AMD's common stock and
     consequently limit the Company's ability to raise capital. In addition, an
     actual or anticipated shortfall in revenue, gross margins or earnings from
     securities analysts' expectations could have an immediate effect on the
     trading price of AMD common stock in any given period.

     Earthquake Danger. AMD's corporate headquarters, a portion of its
     manufacturing facilities, assembly and research and development activities
     and certain other critical business operations are located near major
     earthquake fault lines. The Company could be materially adversely affected
     in the event of a major earthquake.

     II.  OTHER INFORMATION


 
    Item 1.  Legal Proceedings

     Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. v. Altera Corporation (Case No. C94-20567-RMW,
     U.S. District Ct., San Jose, California).  This litigation, which began in
     1994, involves multiple claims and counterclaims for patent infringement
     relating to the Company's and Altera Corporation's programmable logic
     devices.  On June 21, 1996, the jury returned a verdict favorable to
     Altera.  The Company has filed a motion seeking to set aside the verdict.
     If the motion is denied, the parties have stipulated that the court, not a
     jury, will decide which of the AMD patents-in-suit fall within the scope of
     the license that the jury found.  Based upon information presently known to
     management the Company does not believe that the ultimate resolution of
     this lawsuit will have a material adverse effect upon the financial
     condition or results of operations of the Company.

                establish a nominating committee consisting solely of
                independent directors (as defined in the proposal) was not
                properly brought before the annual meeting for a vote because a
                representative of NYCERS failed to attend the meeting and offer
                the proposal for consideration and approval. If the proposal had
                been properly presented, it would have been defeated based upon
                the shares of AMD's common stock present in person or
                represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the annual meeting.

             business unit;

     (xii)  amend the Plan at any time and from time to time, provided however that no

            stockholders, to the extent such stockholder approval is required under Section
            162(m) of the Code with respect to Awards which are intended to qualify under
            that Section.
</TABLE>

4. ELIGIBILITY
 
Only Key Employees as designated by the Committee are eligible to become
Participants in the Plan.
 
5. PERFORMANCE GOALS
 
  A. The Committee shall establish performance goals applicable to a particular
     fiscal year (or performance period) prior to its start, provided, however,
     that such goals may be established after the start of the fiscal year (or
     performance period) but while the outcome of the performance goal is
     substantially uncertain if such a method of establishing performance goals
     is permitted under proposed or final regulations issued under Code Section
     162(m).
 
  B. Each performance goal applicable to a fiscal year shall identify one or
     more business criteria of the Company and/or any business unit that are to
     be monitored during the fiscal year (or performance period), such as:
 
     . Net income                           . Stockholder return
     . Earnings per share                   . Revenue
     . Return on investment                 . Revenue growth
     . Operating income                     . Market share
     . Strategic positioning programs       . Return on net assets 
     . Cash flow                            . Return on equity     
                                            . New product releases  
                                            
 
  C. The Committee shall determine the target level of performance that must be
     achieved with respect to each criterion that is identified in a
     performance goal in order for a performance goal to be treated as
     attained.
 
  D. The Committee may base performance goals on one or more of the foregoing
     business criteria. In the event performance goals are based on more than
     one business criterion, the Committee may determine to make Awards upon
     attainment of the performance goal relating to any one or more of such
     criteria, provided the performance goals, when established, are stated as
     alternatives to one another at the time the performance goal is
     established.
 
6. AWARDS
 
  A. Awards may be made on the basis of Company and/or business unit
     performance goals and formulas determined by the Committee. During any
     fiscal year of the Company, no Participant shall receive an Award of more
     $5,000,000.
 
  B. The Committee, in its discretion, may reduce or eliminate a Participant's
     Award at any time before it is paid, whether or not calculated on the
     basis of pre-established performance goals or formulas.
 
                                       2

<PAGE>
 
  C. The payment of an Award requires that the Participant be on the Company's
     payroll as of the last day of the fiscal year (or performance period). The
     Committee may make exceptions to this requirement in the case of
     retirement, death or disability, as determined by the Committee in its
     sole discretion.
 
  D. The Company shall withhold all applicable federal, state, local and
     foreign taxes required by law to be paid or withheld relating to the
     receipt or payment of any Award.
 
  E. At the discretion of the Committee, payment of an Award or any portion
     thereof may be deferred until a time established by the Committee.
     Deferrals shall be unfunded and shall be made in accordance with
     guidelines established by the Committee to ensure that such deferrals
     comply with applicable requirements of the Code and its regulations.
     Deferrals shall be initiated by the delivery of a written, irrevocable
     election by the Participant to the Committee or its nominee. Such election
     shall be made prior to the date specified by the Committee. The Committee
     may also credit earnings on cash payments that are deferred and set the
     rates of such interest.
 
7. GENERAL
 
  A. The Plan shall become effective as of January 1, 1996, subject to
     stockholder approval of the Plan prior to January 1, 1996 or within twelve
     months thereafter.
 
  B. Any rights of a Participant under the Plan shall not be assignable by such
     Participant, by operation of law or otherwise, except by will or the laws
     of descent and distribution. No Participant may create a lien on any funds
     or rights to which he or she may have an interest under the Plan, or which
     is held by the Company for the account of the Participant under the Plan.
 
  C. Participation in the Plan shall not give any Key Employee any right to
     remain in the employ of the Company. Further, the adoption of this Plan
     shall not be deemed to give any Key Employee or other individual the right
     to be selected as a Participant or to be granted an Award.
 
  D. To the extent any person acquires a right to receive payments from the
     Company under this Plan, such rights shall be no greater than the rights
     of an unsecured creditor of the Company.
 
  E. The Plan shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of
     the State of California.
 
  F. The Board may amend or terminate the Plan (i) at any time and for any
     reason subject to stockholder approval and (ii) at any time and for any
     reason if and to the extent the Plan's qualification under Section 162(m)
     of the Code would not be adversely affected.

     The Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors of NexGen, Inc. (the "NexGen
Board") on March 12, 1995, thereafter amended by the NexGen Board on May 10,
1995 and December 8, 1995. Effective upon the merger of NexGen, Inc. with and
into Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. ("AMD") on January 17, 1996, AMD assumed the
Plan as the successor to NexGen. The AMD Board of Directors amended the Plan on
February 7, 1996 and April 25, 1996. The purpose is to offer to selected
employees, consultants and promotional representatives an opportunity to acquire
a proprietary interest in the success of the Company, or to increase such
interest, by purchasing Shares of the Company's Common Stock. The Plan provides
both for the direct award or sale of Shares and for the grant of Options to
purchase Shares. Options granted under the Plan may include Nonstatutory Options
as well as ISOs intended to qualify under section 422 of the Code.

     The Plan is intended to comply in all respects with Rule 16b-3 (or its
successor) under the Exchange Act and shall be construed accordingly.

     administration of the Plan.

All decisions, interpretations and other actions of the Committee shall be final
and binding on all Offerees, all Optionees, and all persons deriving their
rights from an Offeree or Optionee.  No member of the Committee shall be liable

          ---------------------------------------------------               
acquire Shares under the Plan (other than an Option) shall automatically expire
if not exercised by the Offeree within 30 days after the grant of such right was
communicated to the

                                      -7-

<PAGE>
 
Offeree by the Committee.  Such right shall not be transferable and shall be
exercisable only by the Offeree to whom such right was granted.

     (c)  Purchase Price.  The Purchase Price of Shares to be offered under the
          --------------                                                       
Plan shall not be less than the par value of such Shares.  Subject to the
preceding sentence, the Purchase Price shall be determined by the Committee at
its sole discretion.  The Purchase Price shall be payable in a form described
in Section 8.

     (d)  Withholding Taxes.  As a condition to the award, sale or vesting of
          -----------------                                                  
Shares, the Offeree shall make such arrangements as the Committee may require
for the satisfaction of any federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax
obligations that arise in connection with such Shares.  The Committee may permit
the Offeree to satisfy all or part of his or her tax obligations related to such
Shares by having the Company withhold a portion of any Shares that otherwise
would be issued to him or her or by surrendering any Shares that previously were
acquired by him or her.  The Shares withheld or surrendered shall be valued at
their Fair Market Value on the date when taxes otherwise would be withheld in
cash.  The payment of taxes by assigning Shares to the Company, if permitted by
the Committee, shall be subject to such restrictions as the Committee may
impose, including any restrictions required by rules of the Securities and
Exchange Commission.

     (e)  Restrictions on Transfer of Shares.  Any Shares awarded or sold under
          ----------------------------------                                   
the Plan shall be subject to such special forfeiture conditions, rights of
repurchase, rights of first refusal and other transfer restrictions as the
Committee may determine.  Such restrictions shall be set forth in the applicable
Stock Purchase Agreement and shall apply in addition to any general
restrictions that may apply to all holders of Shares.

SECTION 7.  TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF OPTIONS.
- ---------   ------------------------------- 

     (a)  Stock Option Agreement.  Each grant of an Option under the Plan shall
          ----------------------                                               
be evidenced by a Stock Option Agreement executed by the Optionee and the
Company.  Such Option shall be subject to all applicable terms and conditions of
the Plan and may be subject to any other terms and conditions which are not
inconsistent with the Plan and which the Committee deems appropriate for
inclusion in a Stock Option Agreement.  The provisions of the various Stock
Option Agreements entered into under the Plan need not be identical.

     (b)  Number of Shares.  Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the
          ----------------                                                
number of Shares that are subject to the Option and shall provide for the
adjustment of such number in accordance

                                      -8-

<PAGE>
 
with Section 9.  Options granted to any Optionee in a single calendar year shall
in no event cover more than 400,000 Shares, subject to adjustment in accordance
with Section 9.  The Stock Option Agreement shall also specify whether the
Option is an ISO or a Nonstatutory Option.

     (c)  Exercise Price.  Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the
          --------------                                                
Exercise Price.  The Exercise Price of an ISO shall not be less than 100 percent
of the Fair Market Value of a Share on the date of grant, except as otherwise
provided in Section 4(c).  The Exercise Price of a Nonstatutory Option shall
not be less than the par value of a Share.  Subject to the preceding two
sentences, the Exercise Price under any Option shall be determined by the
Committee at its sole discretion.  The Exercise Price shall be payable in a form
described in Section 8.

     (d)  Withholding Taxes.  As a condition to the exercise of an Option, the
          -----------------                                                   
Optionee shall make such arrangements as the Committee may require for the
satisfaction of any federal, state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations
that arise in connection with such exercise.  The Optionee shall also make such
arrangements as the Committee may require for the satisfaction of any federal,
state, local or foreign withholding tax obligations that may arise in connection
with the disposition of Shares acquired by exercising an Option.  The Committee
may permit the Optionee to satisfy all or part of his or her tax obligations
related to the Option by having the Company withhold a portion of any Shares
that otherwise would be issued to him or her or by surrendering any Shares that
previously were acquired by him or her.  Such Shares shall be valued at their
Fair Market Value on the date when taxes otherwise would be withheld in cash.
The payment of taxes by assigning Shares to the Company, if permitted by the
Committee, shall be subject to such restrictions as the Committee may impose,
including any restrictions required by rules of the Securities and Exchange
Commission.

     (e)  Exercisability.  Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the date
          --------------                                                     
when all or any installment of the Option is to become exercisable.  The vesting
of any Option shall be determined by the Committee at its sole discretion. If
the employment of any Optionee who is a common law employee of the Company is
terminated by the Company for any reason other than Misconduct or if applicable,
by Constructive Termination, within one year after a Change of Control has
occurred, then all Options held by such Optionee shall become fully vested for
exercise upon the date of termination, irrespective of the vesting provisions of
the Optionee's Stock Option Agreement. For purposes of this paragraph, the
following definitions apply: (i) "Change of Control" shall have the meaning
assigned by Section 2(b) of the Plan unless a different meaning is defined in an
Optionee's Stock Option Agreement; (ii) "Misconduct" shall mean the commission
of an act of theft, embezzlement, fraud, dishonesty, breach of fiduciary duty to
the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (as determined by the Board of
Directors), the deliberate disregard of the rules of the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries, any unauthorized disclosure of any of the trade secrets or
confidential information of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, engaging in
any conduct which constitutes unfair competition with the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries, the inducement of any customer of the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries to break any contract with the Company or any of its Subsidiaries,
or the inducement of any principal for whom the Company or any of its
Subsidiaries acts as agent to terminate such agency relationship; and (iii)
"Constructive Termination" shall mean a resignation by an Optionee who has been
elected by the Board of Directors as a corporate officer of the Company due to
diminution of or adverse change in the circumstances of the Optionee's
employment with the Company, as determined in good faith by the Optionee,
including, without limitation, reporting relationships, job description, duties,
responsibilities, compensation, perquisites, office or location of employment.
Constructive Termination shall be communicated by written notice to the Company,
and such termination shall be deemed to occur on the date such notice is
delivered to the Company. 
     A Stock Option Agreement may also provide for accelerated exercisability
in the event of the Optionee's death, Total and Permanent Disability, retirement
or upon other events.

     (f)  Term.  Each Stock Option Agreement shall specify the term of the
          ----                                                            
Option.  The term of an ISO shall not exceed 10 years from the date of grant,
except as otherwise provided in Section 4(c).  Subject to the preceding
sentence, the Committee at its sole discretion shall determine when an Option is
to expire.  A Stock Option Agreement may provide that the Option will expire

                                      -9-

<PAGE>
 
before the end of its normal term in the event that the Optionee's Service
terminates.

     (g)  Nontransferability.  During an Optionee's lifetime, such Optionee's
          ------------------                                                 
Option(s) shall be exercisable only by him or her and shall not be transferable.
In the event of an Optionee's death, such Optionee's Option(s) shall not be
transferable other than by will, by written beneficiary designation or by the
laws of descent and distribution.

     (h)  No Rights as a Stockholder.  An Optionee, or a transferee of an
          --------------------------                                      
Optionee, shall have no rights as a stockholder with respect to any Shares
covered by his or her Option until the date of the issuance of a stock
certificate for such Shares.  No adjustments shall be made, except as provided
in Section 9.

     (i)  Modification, Extension and Renewal of Options.  Within the
          ----------------------------------------------             
limitations of the Plan, the Committee may modify, extend or renew outstanding
Options or may accept the cancellation of outstanding Options (to the extent not
previously exercised) in return for the grant of new Options at the same or a
different price.  The foregoing notwithstanding, no modification of an Option
shall, without the consent of the Optionee, impair such Optionee's rights or
increase his or her obligations under such Option.

     (j)  Restrictions on Transfer of Shares.  Any Shares issued upon exercise
          ----------------------------------                                  
of an Option may be subject to such special forfeiture conditions, rights of
repurchase, rights of first refusal and other transfer restrictions as the
Committee may determine.  Such restrictions shall be set forth in the 
applicable Stock Option Agreement and shall apply in addition to any general
restrictions that may apply to all holders of Shares.

SECTION 8.  PAYMENT FOR SHARES.
- ---------   ------------------ 

     (a)  General Rule.  The entire Purchase Price or Exercise Price of Shares
          ------------                                                        
issued under the Plan shall be payable in lawful money of the United States of
America at the time when such Shares are purchased, except as follows:

          (i)  Stock Purchases.  In the case of Shares sold under the terms of a
               ---------------                                                  
     Stock Purchase Agreement subject to the Plan, payment shall be made only
     pursuant to the express provisions of such Stock Purchase Agreement.
     However, the Committee (at its sole discretion) may specify in the Stock
     Purchase Agreement that payment may be made in one or both of the forms
     described in Subsections (e) and (f) below.

          (ii)  ISOs.  In the case of an ISO granted under the Plan, payment
                ----                                                        
     shall be made only pursuant to the express provisions of the applicable
     Stock Option Agreement.  However, the Committee (at its sole discretion)
     may specify in

                                     -10-

<PAGE>
 
     the Stock Option Agreement that payment may be made pursuant to Subsections
     (b), (c), (d) or (f) below.

          (iii)  Nonstatutory Options.  In the case of a Nonstatutory Option
                 --------------------                                        
     granted under the Plan, the Committee (at its sole discretion) may accept
     payment pursuant to Subsections (b), (c), (d) or (f) below.

     (b)  Surrender of Stock.  To the extent that this Subsection (b) is
          ------------------                                            
applicable, payment may be made all or in part with Shares which have already
been owned by the Optionee or his or her representative for more than 12 months
and which are surrendered to the Company in good form for transfer.  Such Shares
shall be valued at their Fair Market Value on the date when the new Shares are
purchased under the Plan.

     (c)  Exercise/Sale.  To the extent that this Subsection (c) is applicable,
          -------------                                                        
payment may be made by the delivery (on a form prescribed by the Company) of an
irrevocable direction to a securities broker approved by the Company to sell
Shares and to deliver all or part of the sales proceeds to the Company in
payment of all or part of the Exercise Price and any withholding taxes.

     (d)  Exercise/Pledge.  To the extent that this Subsection (d) is
          ---------------                                             
applicable, payment may be made by the delivery (on a form prescribed by the
Company) of an irrevocable direction to pledge Shares to a securities broker or
lender approved by the Company, as security for a loan, and to deliver all or
part of the loan proceeds to the Company in payment of all or part of the
Exercise Price and any withholding taxes.

     (e)  Services Rendered.  To the extent that this Subsection (e) is
          -----------------                                             
applicable, Shares may be awarded under the Plan in consideration of services
rendered to the Company or a Subsidiary prior to the award.  If Shares are
awarded without the payment of a Purchase Price in cash, the Committee shall
make a determination (at the time of the award) of the value of the services
rendered by the Offeree and the sufficiency of the consideration to meet the
requirements of Section 6(c).

     (f)  Promissory Note.  To the extent that this Subsection (f) is
          ---------------                                             
applicable, a portion of the Purchase Price or Exercise Price, as the case may
be, of Shares issued under the Plan may be payable by a full-recourse promissory
note, provided that (i) the par value of such Shares must be paid in lawful
money of the United States of America at the time when such Shares are
purchased, (ii) the Shares are security for payment of the principal amount of
the promissory note and interest thereon and (iii) the interest rate payable
under the terms of the promissory note shall be no less than the minimum rate
(if any) required to avoid the imputation of additional interest under the Code.
Subject to the foregoing, the Committee (at its sole

                                     -11-

<PAGE>
 
discretion) shall specify the term, interest rate, amortization requirements (if
any) and other provisions of such note.

SECTION 9.  ADJUSTMENT OF SHARES.
- ---------   -------------------- 

     (a)  General.  In the event of a subdivision of the outstanding Stock, a
          -------                                                             
declaration of a dividend payable in Shares, a declaration of a dividend payable
in a form other than Shares in an amount that has a material effect on the value
of Shares, a combination or consolidation of the outstanding Stock (by 
reclassification or otherwise) into a lesser number of Shares, a
recapitalization, a spinoff or a similar occurrence, the Committee shall make
appropriate adjustments in one or more of:

          (i)  The number of Shares available under Section 5 for future grants;

          (ii)  The limit set forth in Section 7(b);

          (iii)  The number of Nonstatutory Options to be granted to Outside
     Directors under Section 4(b);

          (iv)  The number of Shares covered by each outstanding Option; or

          (v)  The Exercise Price under each outstanding Option.

     (b)  Reorganizations.  In the event that the Company is a party to a merger
          ---------------                                                       
or other reorganization, outstanding Options shall be subject to the agreement
of merger or reorganization.  Such agreement may provide, without limitation,
for the assumption of outstanding Options by the surviving corporation or its
parent, for their continuation by the Company (if the Company is a surviving
corporation), for payment of a cash settlement equal to the difference between
the amount to be paid for one Share under such agreement and the Exercise Price,
or for the acceleration of their exercisability followed by the cancellation of
Options not exercised, in all cases without the Optionees' consent.  Any
cancellation shall not occur until after such acceleration is effective and
Optionees have been notified of such acceleration.

     (c)  Reservation of Rights.  Except as provided in this Section 9, an
          ---------------------                                           
Optionee or Offeree shall have no rights by reason of any subdivision or
consolidation of shares of stock of any class, the payment of any dividend or
any other increase or decrease in the number of shares of stock of any class.
Any issue by the Company of shares of stock of any class, or securities
convertible into shares of stock of any class, shall not affect, and no
adjustment by reason thereof shall be made with respect to, the number or
Exercise Price of Shares subject to an Option.  The grant of an Option pursuant
to the Plan shall not affect in any way the right or power of the Company to
make adjustments, reclassifications, reorganizations or changes of its capital
or

                                     -12-

<PAGE>
 
business structure, to merge or consolidate or to dissolve, liquidate, sell or
transfer all or any part of its business or assets.

SECTION 10.  SECURITIES LAWS.
- ----------   --------------- 

     Shares shall not be issued under the Plan unless the issuance and delivery
of such Shares complies with (or is exempt from) all applicable requirements of
law, including (without limitation) the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the
rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, state securities laws and
regulations, and the regulations of any stock exchange on which the Company's
securities may then be listed.

SECTION 11.  NO RETENTION RIGHTS.
- ----------   ------------------- 

     Neither the Plan nor any Option shall be deemed to give any individual a
right to remain an employee or consultant of the Company or a Subsidiary.  The
Company and its Subsidiaries reserve the right to terminate the service of any
employee or consultant at any time, with or without cause, subject to applicable
laws and a written employment agreement (if any).

SECTION 12.  DURATION AND AMENDMENTS.
- ----------   ----------------------- 

     (a)  Term of the Plan.  The Plan, as set forth herein, shall become
          ----------------                                              
effective as of May 10, 1995.  The Plan, if not extended, shall terminate
automatically on March 11, 2005.  It may be terminated on any earlier date
pursuant to Subsection (b) below.

     (b)  Right to Amend or Terminate the Plan.  The Board of Directors may
          ------------------------------------                             
amend, suspend or terminate the Plan at any time and for any reason, except that
the provisions of Section 4(b) relating to the amount, price and timing of
grants to Outside Directors shall not be amended more than once in any six-month
period.  An amendment of the Plan shall be subject to the approval of the
Company's stockholders only to the extent required by applicable laws or
regulations.

     (c)  Effect of Amendment or Termination.  No Shares shall be issued or sold
          ----------------------------------                                    
under the Plan after the termination thereof, except upon exercise of an Option
granted prior to such termination.  The termination of the Plan, or any
amendment thereof, shall not affect any Share previously issued or any Option
previously granted under the Plan.
