Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
NOTE 1. Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the Company or AMD) have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The results of operations for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2016. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the information contained herein reflects all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows. All such adjustments are of a normal, recurring nature. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
The Company uses a 52 or 53 week fiscal year ending on the last Saturday in December. The quarters and six months ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 each consisted of 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively.
Principles of Consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the Company’s accounts and those of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Upon consolidation, all significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
Income Tax. In November 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (ASU 2015-17), which simplifies the presentation of deferred income taxes by requiring that all deferred tax assets and liabilities to be classified as non-current on the consolidated balance sheet. The Company has adopted ASU 2015-17 prospectively in the first quarter of 2016. As a result, the Company netted $31 million of deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities, respectively, and reclassified $8 million current deferred tax assets and $6 million current deferred tax liabilities to non-current deferred tax assets and liabilities, respectively, on its condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 26, 2016. The prior period information was not retrospectively adjusted.
Interest—Imputation of Interest. In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs (ASU 2015-03), which requires an entity to present such costs in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the related debt liability rather than as an asset. Amortization of the costs will continue to be reported as interest expense. ASU 2015-03 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The new guidance will be applied retrospectively to each prior period presented. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015 -15 to amend ASU 2015-03 and address debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements. ASU 2015-15 allows an entity to present debt issuance costs related to a line-of-credit as an asset and subsequently amortize the deferred debt issuance costs ratably over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the arrangement. This accounting standard update did not impact the effective date of the previously issued guidance. The Company retrospectively adopted ASU 2015-03 and 2015-15 in the first quarter of 2016. As a result, the Company reclassified the financing costs from long term assets to long term debt by $23 million and $25 million as of March 26, 2016 and December 26, 2015, respectively, on its consolidated balance sheets.
Inventory. In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory (ASU 2015-11), which simplifies the measurement of inventory by requiring certain inventory to be measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 and for interim periods therein, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2015-11 on its consolidated financial statements.
Disclosure of Going Concern Uncertainties. In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (ASU 2014-15) , which provides guidance on management’s responsibility in evaluating whether there is substantial doubt about a company’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. ASU 2014-15 is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2016 and for interim and annual periods therein with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2014-15 on its consolidated financial statements.
Revenue Recognition. In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606 (ASU 2014-09), which creates a single source of revenue guidance under U.S. GAAP for all companies in all industries. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is that revenue should be recognized in a manner that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those

7


goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five-step process in order to achieve this core principle, which may require the use of judgment and estimates. ASU 2014-09 also requires expanded qualitative and quantitative disclosures relating to the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including significant judgments and estimates used. In July 2015, FASB announced a decision to defer the effective date for this ASU. ASU 2014-09 is effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018 with early adoption permitted (for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016). The Company may adopt ASU 2014-09 either by using a full retrospective approach for all periods presented in the period of adoption or a modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2014-09 on its consolidated financial statements and has not yet determined which approach it will apply.

Financial Instruments. In January 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments - Overall: Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (ASU 2016-01), which provides guidance related to accounting for equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. In addition, FASB clarified guidance related to the valuation allowance assessment when recognizing deferred tax assets resulting from unrealized losses on available-for-sale debt securities. ASU 2016-01 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2016-01 on its consolidated financial statements.

Leases. During February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. (ASU 2016-02), which increases transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing all lease transactions (with terms in excess of 12 months) on the balance sheet as a lease liability and a right-of-use asset (as defined). ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early application permitted. Upon adoption, the lessee will apply the new standard retrospectively to all periods presented or retrospectively using a cumulative effect adjustment in the year of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2016-02 on its consolidated financial statements. 

Investments. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-07, Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323): Simplifying the Transition to the Equity Method of Accounting (ASU 2016-07), which requires the equity method investor to add the cost of acquiring the additional interest in the investee to the current basis of the investor’s previously held interest and adopt the equity method of accounting as of the date the investment qualifies for equity method accounting. ASU 2016-07 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years with early application permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2016-07 on its consolidated financial statements.
 
Stock Compensation. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Stock Compensation (ASU 2016-09), which is intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2016-09 on its consolidated financial statements.

Although there are several other new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB, which the Company has adopted or will adopt, as applicable, the Company does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on its consolidated financial position or operating results.
NOTE 2. GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Wafer Supply Agreement. The Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA) governs the terms by which the Company purchases products manufactured by GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF).
Fifth Amendment to Wafer Supply Agreement. On April 16, 2015, the Company entered into a fifth amendment to the WSA. The primary effect of the fifth amendment was to establish volume purchase commitments and fixed pricing for the 2015 calendar year as well as to modify certain other terms of the WSA applicable to wafers for some of the Company's microprocessor unit, graphics processor unit and semi-custom products to be delivered by GF to the Company during the 2015 calendar year.
The Company’s total purchases from GF related to wafer manufacturing and research and development activities for the quarters ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 were $85 million and $246 million, respectively. The Company’s total purchases from GF related to wafer manufacturing and research and development activities for the six months ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 were $293 million and $416 million, respectively.
The Company’s currently known purchase obligations to GF for wafer manufacturing and research and development activities are approximately $434 million for fiscal 2016 which include certain wafer deliveries under the fifth amendment to the WSA that

8



had been delayed to fiscal 2016. The Company is not able to meaningfully quantify or estimate its future purchase obligations to GF beyond this amount because it is currently in the process of negotiating a sixth amendment to the WSA. The Company expects that its future purchases from GF will continue to be material.
GF continues to be a related party of the Company because Mubadala Development Company PJSC (Mubadala) and Mubadala Technology Investments LLC (Mubadala Tech) are affiliated with West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH), the Company’s largest stockholder. GF, WCH and Mubadala Tech are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Mubadala.

NOTE 4. Equity Interest Purchase Agreement - ATMP Joint Venture
On April 29, 2016, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries completed the sale of a majority of the equity interests in AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd., a wholly-foreign owned enterprise incorporated as a limited liability company, and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd., a Malaysian limited liability company, to affiliates of Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co., Ltd., a Chinese joint stock company (NFME), to form two joint ventures (collectively, the ATMP JV), pursuant to the terms of an Equity Interest Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 15, 2015 (the Equity Interest Purchase Agreement), between the Company and NFME. As a result of the sale, NFME’s affiliates own 85% of the equity interests in each ATMP JV while certain of the Company’s subsidiaries own the remaining 15%. The Company has no obligations to fund the ATMP JV.
As the result of the transaction, the Company received approximately $351 million, including purchase price adjustments, in net cash proceeds in the second quarter of 2016 for selling 85% of the equity interest in each of AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd. and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd. These proceeds, net of certain transaction costs, were included in investing activities on the Company's condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 25, 2016. The Company estimates final net cash proceeds, excluding final purchase price adjustments which the Company expects will be settled in upcoming quarters, after payment of taxes and customary expenses in the current and future quarters, of approximately $320 million.
In connection with the divestiture, the Company recognized a pre-tax gain of $150 million within Other income (expense), net on its condensed consolidated statements of operations during the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016. The pre-tax gain reflects the excess of the sum of net cash proceeds and fair value of the Company's retained 15% equity interests in the ATMP JV over the sum of the net book values of the Company's former subsidiaries and other closing costs directly attributed to the divestiture. The above gain includes $12 million of excess of fair value of the Company's retained interest over the corresponding net book values.
In determining the fair value of the Company's retained 15% equity interests in the ATMP JV, the Company used quoted prices from comparable bids for this transaction. The Company also considered other factors including the control premium and the amount of consideration received for the portion sold.
The Company accounts for its equity interests in the ATMP JV under the equity method of accounting due to its significant influence over the ATMP JV. As of June 25, 2016, the carrying value of the Company's investment in the ATMP JV was approximately $62 million. Opening balances of ATMP JV are currently undergoing a valuation analysis which may result in adjustment to the carrying value of the investment in ATMP JV, adjustment to the recognized gain on sale of the 85% equity interest or equity method income (loss) in ATMP JV.
Following the deconsolidation, the ATMP JV is a related party of the Company. The ATMP JV provides assembly, test, mark and pack (ATMP) services to the Company. The Company currently pays the ATMP JV for ATMP services on a cost-plus basis. The Company's total purchases from the ATMP JV in the second quarter of 2016 amounted to approximately $66 million. The Company’s payable to the ATMP JV, as of June 25, 2016 was $150 million also included amounts payable to the former subsidiaries,

10



AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd. and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd., arising from the transactions prior to the sale.
The Company recorded a loss of $3 million in Equity in income (loss) of ATMP JV on its condensed consolidated statements of operations for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016, which includes certain expenses incurred by the Company on behalf of the ATMP JV.
NOTE 5. Equity Joint Venture - Intellectual Property Licensing Agreement
In February 2016, the Company and Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co., Ltd. (THATIC), a third-party Chinese entity (JV Partner) formed a joint venture comprised of two separate legal entities, China JV1 and China JV2 (collectively, the China JVs). The Company’s equity share in China JV1 and China JV2 is a majority and minority interest, respectively, funded by the Company’s contribution of certain of its patents. The JV Partner is responsible for the initial and on-going financing of the China JVs’ operations. The Company has no obligations to fund the China JVs. The China JVs’ primary purpose is to support the Company’s expansion into the server and workstation product market in China. The Company licensed certain of its intellectual property (Licensed IP) to the China JVs for a total of approximately $293 million in license fees payable over several years contingent upon achievement of certain milestones. The Company also expects to receive a royalty based on the sales of the China JVs’ products to be developed on the basis of such Licensed IP. The Company will also provide certain engineering and technical support to the China JVs in connection with the product development.
The Company concluded the China JV1 and China JV2 are not operating joint ventures and are variable interest entities due to their reliance on on-going financing by JV Partner. The Company determined that it is not the primary beneficiary of either China JV1 or China JV2 and will not consolidate either of these entities. The Company accounts for its investments in the China JVs under the equity method of accounting.
Income related to the Licensed IP will be recognized over the period commencing upon delivery of the first Licensed IP milestone through the date of the milestone that requires the Company’s continuing involvement in the product development process, and thereafter, together with royalty payments, will be recognized in income once earned. The Company will classify Licensed IP income and royalty income as other operating income. During the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016, the Company recognized $26 million and $33 million, respectively, of operating income related to the Licensed IP.
The Company’s total exposure to losses through its investment into the China JVs is limited to the Company’s investments in the China JVs, which was zero as of June 25, 2016. The Company’s share in the net losses of the China JVs for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 was not material and is not recorded in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations since the Company is not obligated to fund the China JVs losses in excess of the Company’s investment in the China JVs.
As of June 25, 2016, the total assets and liabilities of the China JVs were not material.
NOTE 6. Net Income (Loss) Per Share
Basic net income (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding.
Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding plus any potentially dilutive shares outstanding. Potentially dilutive shares include stock options and restricted stock units.
The following table sets forth the components of basic and diluted net income (loss) per share:

The Company did not have any transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy during the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 or the year ended December 26, 2015.
(2) 
The Company’s Level 2 short-term investments are valued using broker reports that utilize quoted market prices for identical or comparable instruments. Brokers gather observable inputs for all of the Company’s fixed income securities from a variety of industry data providers and other third-party sources.
Available-for-sale securities held by the Company as of June 25, 2016 and December 26, 2015 consisted of commercial paper. The amortized cost of available-for-sale securities approximated the fair value for all periods presented.
In addition to those amounts presented above, as of June 25, 2016 and December 26, 2015, the Company had approximately $3 million and $1 million, respectively, of available-for-sale investments in money market funds, used as collateral for letters of credit deposits, which were included in Other current assets and Other assets, respectively, on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. These money market funds are classified within Level 1 because they are valued using quoted prices

for identical instruments in active markets. Their amortized costs are the same as the fair value for all periods presented. The Company is restricted from accessing these deposits.
Also in addition to those amounts presented above, as of June 25, 2016 and December 26, 2015, the Company had approximately $14 million and $15 million, respectively, of available-for-sale investments in mutual funds held in a Rabbi trust established for the Company's deferred compensation plan, which were included in Other assets on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets. These mutual funds are classified within Level 1 because they are valued using quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets. Their amortized cost approximates the fair value for all periods presented. The Company is restricted from accessing these investments.
Financial Instruments Not Recorded at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis. The Company carries its financial instruments at fair value with the exception of its debt. Financial instruments that are not recorded at fair value are measured at fair value on a quarterly basis for disclosure purposes.

NOTE 8. Income Taxes
In the second quarter of 2016, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $29 million. This included $2 million due primarily to foreign taxes in profitable locations and $2 million for withholding taxes applicable to license fee revenue from foreign locations partially offset by $2 million of tax benefits arising from other comprehensive income and Canadian tax credits. In addition, the Company recorded the tax effect of completion of the sale of a majority equity interest in two subsidiaries comprising $21 million of income tax expense in China and $6 million of withholding tax expense associated with a future repatriation of the gain generated in China by the Chinese portion of that transaction (see Note 4. Equity Interest Purchase Agreement - ATMP Joint Venture).
In future periods, the Company will apply the equity method of accounting to its 15% investment in the two former subsidiaries. The Company's share of applicable tax expense will be netted with the equity share of future profits or losses. In 2015, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $2 million related to the activities of the two former subsidiaries.
The Company has not recognized the tax benefit of future foreign tax credits associated with the withholding tax expense as the size and age profile of existing tax attributes does not allow it to satisfy the "more likely than not" criterion for the recognition of deferred tax assets.
For the six months ended June 25, 2016, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $30 million due to foreign taxes in profitable locations and items identified above.
In the second quarter of 2015 and for the six months ended June 27, 2015, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $1 million and $4 million, respectively, due to foreign taxes in profitable locations.
As of June 25, 2016, substantially all of the Company’s U.S. and Canadian deferred tax assets, net of deferred tax liabilities, continue to be subject to a valuation allowance. The realization of these assets is dependent on substantial future taxable income which, as of June 25, 2016, in management’s estimate, is not more likely than not to be achieved.
The Company's total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of June 25, 2016 were $41 million. The Company currently does not expect to reduce its unrecognized tax benefits over the next 12 months. The Company does not believe it is reasonably possible that other unrecognized tax benefits will materially change in the next 12 months. However, the settlement, resolution or closure of tax audits are highly uncertain.

NOTE 9. Segment Reporting
Management, including the Chief Operating Decision Maker, who is the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, reviews and assesses operating performance using segment net revenue and operating income (loss) before interest, other income (expense), net and income taxes. These performance measures include the allocation of expenses to the operating segments based on management’s judgment. The Company has the following two reportable segments:
the Computing and Graphics segment, which primarily includes desktop and notebook processors and chipsets, discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) and professional graphics; and
the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, which primarily includes server and embedded processors, semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products, development services, technology for game consoles and licensing portions of its intellectual property portfolio.
In addition to these reportable segments, the Company has an All Other category, which is not a reportable segment. This category primarily includes certain expenses and credits that are not allocated to any of the reportable segments because management does not consider these expenses and credits in evaluating the performance of the reportable segments. Also included in this category are, employee stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and other special charges, net and amortization of acquired intangible assets.

For the six months ended June 27, 2015, the Company granted 0.7 million employee stock options with weighted average grant date fair values per share of $1.12.
Restricted Stock Units
In the second quarters of 2016 and 2015, the Company granted 5.6 million and 4.1 million shares of restricted stock units, respectively, with weighted average grant date fair values per share of $2.97 and $2.46, respectively. For the six months ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015, the Company granted 6.4 million and 9.4 million shares of restricted stock units, respectively, with weighted average grant date fair values per share of $2.86 and $2.50, respectively.
NOTE 11. Commitments and Contingencies
Warranties and Indemnities
The Company generally warrants that its products sold to its customers will conform to the Company’s approved specifications and be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for one year. Subject to certain exceptions, the Company also offers a three-year limited warranty to end users for only those central processing unit (CPU) and AMD accelerated processing unit (APU) products that are commonly referred to as “processors in a box” and for certain server CPU products. The Company also offers extended limited warranties to certain customers of “tray” microprocessor products and/or professional graphics products who have written agreements with the Company and target their computer systems at the commercial and/or embedded markets.
Changes in the Company’s estimated liability for product warranty were as follows:

In addition to product warranties, the Company, from time to time in its normal course of business, indemnifies other parties, with whom it enters into contractual relationships, including customers, lessors and parties to other transactions with the Company, with respect to certain matters. In these limited matters, the Company has agreed to hold certain third parties harmless against specific types of claims or losses, such as those arising from a breach of representations or covenants, third-party claims that the Company’s products when used for their intended purpose(s) and under specific conditions infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party, or other specified claims made against the indemnified party. It is not possible to determine the maximum potential amount of liability under these indemnification obligations due to the unique facts and circumstances that are likely to be involved in each particular claim and indemnification provision. Historically, payments made by the Company under these obligations have not been material.
Contingencies
Securities Class Action
On January 15, 2014, a class action lawsuit captioned Hatamian v. AMD, et al., C.A. No. 3:14-cv-00226 (the “Hatamian Lawsuit”) was filed against the Company in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint purports to assert claims against the Company and certain individual officers for alleged violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and Rule 10b-5 of the Exchange Act. The plaintiffs seek to represent a proposed class of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the Company's common stock during the period April 4, 2011 through October 18, 2012. The complaint seeks damages allegedly caused by alleged materially misleading statements and/or material omissions by the Company and the individual officers regarding the Company's 32nm technology and “Llano” product, which statements and omissions, the plaintiffs claim, allegedly operated to artificially inflate the price paid for the Company's common stock during the period. The complaint seeks unspecified compensatory damages, attorneys’ fees and costs. On July 7, 2014, the Company filed a motion to dismiss plaintiffs’ claims. On March 31, 2015, the Court denied the motion to dismiss. On May 14, 2015, the Company filed its answer to plaintiffs’ corrected amended complaint. On September 4, 2015, plaintiffs filed their motion for class certification, and on March 16, 2016, the Court granted plaintiffs' motion. A court-ordered mediation held in January 2016 did not result in a settlement of the lawsuit. The discovery process is ongoing.
Based upon information presently known to management, the Company believes that the potential liability, if any, will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, cash flows or results of operations.
Shareholder Derivative Lawsuits
On March 20, 2014, a purported shareholder derivative lawsuit captioned Wessels v. Read, et al., Case No. 1:14 cv-262486 (“Wessels”) was filed against the Company (as a nominal defendant only) and certain of its directors and officers in the Santa Clara County Superior Court of the State of California. The complaint purports to assert claims against the Company and certain individual directors and officers for breach of fiduciary duty, waste of corporate assets and unjust enrichment. The complaint seeks damages allegedly caused by alleged materially misleading statements and/or material omissions by the Company and the individual directors and officers regarding its 32nm technology and “Llano” product, which statements and omissions, the plaintiffs claim, allegedly operated to artificially inflate the price paid for the Company's common stock during the period. On April 27, 2015, a similar purported shareholder derivative lawsuit captioned Christopher Hamilton and David Hamilton v. Barnes, et al., Case No. 5:15-cv-01890 (“Hamilton”) was filed against the Company (as a nominal defendant only) and certain of its directors and officers in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The case was transferred to the judge handling the Hatamian Lawsuit and is now Case No. 4:15-cv-01890.
On September 29, 2015, a similar purported shareholder derivative lawsuit captioned Jake Ha v Caldwell, et al., Case No. 3:15-cv-04485 (“Ha”) was filed against the Company (as a nominal defendant only) and certain of its directors and officers in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The lawsuit also seeks a court order voiding the stockholder

17



vote on the Company’s 2015 proxy. The case was transferred to the judge handling the Hatamian Lawsuit and is now Case No. 4:15-cv-04485. The Wessels, Hamilton and Ha shareholder derivative lawsuits are currently stayed.
Based upon information presently known to management, the Company believes that the potential liability, if any, will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, cash flows or results of operations.
Other Legal Matters
The Company is a defendant or plaintiff in various actions that arose in the normal course of business. With respect to these matters, based on the management’s current knowledge, the Company believes that the amount or range of reasonably possible loss, if any, will not, either individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
NOTE 12. Restructuring and Other Special Charges, Net
2015 Restructuring Plan
In the third quarter of 2015, the Company implemented a restructuring plan (2015 Restructuring Plan) focused on its ongoing efforts to simplify its business and better align resources around its priorities and business outlook. The 2015 Restructuring Plan largely involved a reduction of global headcount by approximately 5% and includes organizational actions such as outsourcing certain IT services and application development. The actions associated with the 2015 Restructuring Plan are expected to be substantially completed by the end of the third quarter of 2016.
The following table provides a summary of the restructuring activities in the first six months of 2016 and the related liabilities recorded in Other current liabilities and Other long-term liabilities on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets as of June 25, 2016:

2014 Restructuring Plan
In the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company implemented a restructuring plan (2014 Restructuring Plan) designed to improve operating efficiencies. The 2014 Restructuring Plan involved a reduction of global headcount by approximately 6% and an alignment of its real estate footprint with its reduced headcount. In the first six months of 2015, the Company recorded an $11 million restructuring charge, which consisted of $4 million for severance and benefit costs and $7 million for facilities related costs. The 2014 Restructuring Plan was largely completed by the end of the third quarter of 2015. During the first six months of 2016, the Company recorded a restructuring charge reversal of $7 million, of which $5 million related to facilities costs associated with a lease amendment which reduced a lease liability previously accrued under this plan.

Dense Server Systems Business Exit
As a part of the Company’s strategy to simplify and sharpen its investment focus, the Company exited the dense server systems business, formerly SeaMicro, in the first quarter of 2015. As a result, the Company recorded a charge of $76 million in Restructuring and other special charges, net on the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations in the first six months of 2015. This charge included an impairment charge of $62 million related to the acquired intangible assets. The Company concluded that the carrying value of the acquired intangible assets associated with its dense server systems business was fully impaired as the Company did not have plans to utilize the related freedom fabric technology in any of its future products nor did it have any plans at that time to monetize the associated intellectual property. In addition, the exit charge consisted of a $7 million non-cash charge related to asset impairments, $4 million of severance and related benefits and $3 million for contract or program termination costs. The Company has substantially completed this exit activity during the first quarter of 2016.

NOTE 14. Secured Revolving Line of Credit

Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On April 14, 2015, AMD and its subsidiaries, AMD International Sales & Service, Ltd. and ATI Technologies ULC (collectively, the Loan Parties), entered into an amended and restated loan and security agreement (the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement) by and among the Loan Parties, the financial institutions party thereto from time to time as lenders (the Lenders) and Bank of America, N.A., acting as agent for the Lenders (the Agent).

The Amended and Restated Loan Agreement provides for a Secured Revolving Line of Credit for a principal amount up to $500 million with up to $75 million available for issuance of letters of credit, which remained unchanged from the loan and security agreement dated November 12, 2013, as amended on December 11, 2014. Borrowings under the Secured Revolving Line of Credit are limited to up to 85% of eligible accounts receivable (90% for certain qualified eligible accounts receivable), minus specified reserves. The size of the commitments under the Secured Revolving Line of Credit may be increased by up to an aggregate amount of $200 million.

The Secured Revolving Line of Credit matures on April 14, 2020 and is secured by a first priority security interest in the Loan Parties’ accounts receivable, inventory, deposit accounts maintained with the Agent and other specified assets, including books and records.
At June 25, 2016 and December 26, 2015, the Secured Revolving Line of Credit had an outstanding loan balance of $226 million and $230 million, at an interest rate of 4.25% and 4.00%, respectively. At June 25, 2016, the Secured Revolving Line of Credit also had $21 million related to outstanding letters of credit, and up to $163 million available for future borrowings. The Company reports its intra-period changes in its revolving credit balance on a net basis in its condensed consolidated statement of cash flows as the Company intends the period of the borrowings to be brief, repaying borrowed amounts within 90 days. As of June 25, 2016, the Company was in compliance with all required covenants stated in the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement.

First Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On June 10, 2015, the Loan Parties entered into a first amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “First Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. Amendments to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by the First Amendment included the addition of exceptions to the liens and asset sale covenants to permit the Loan Parties to enter into certain supply chain finance arrangements, as well as the addition of certain definitions related thereto.

Second Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On April 29, 2016, the Loan Parties entered into a second amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Second Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. The primary amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by

20



the Second Amendment related to the expansion of the definition of permitted asset dispositions to include the sale or transfer of inventory to the ATMP JV pursuant to the Equity Interest Purchase Agreement between AMD and NFME.

Third Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On June 21, 2016, the Loan Parties entered into a third amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Third Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. Amendments to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by the Third Amendment included the further expansion of the asset sale covenants to permit the Loan Parties to enter into certain supply chain finance arrangements.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
          
The statements in this report include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and beliefs and involve numerous risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof or as of the dates indicated in the statements and should not be relied upon as predictions of future events, as we cannot assure you that the events or circumstances reflected in these statements will be achieved or will occur. You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology including “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “plans,” “pro forma,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” or the negative of these words and phrases, other variations of these words and phrases or comparable terminology. The forward-looking statements relate to, among other things: demand for AMD’s products; the growth, change and competitive landscape of the markets in which AMD participates; future restructuring activities; the nature and extent of AMD’s future payments to GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) and the materiality of these payments; the materiality of AMD’s future purchases from GF; the expected amount and timing of the final net cash proceeds from the joint venture transaction between AMD and Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co. Ltd.; the expected amounts to be received by AMD under the IP licensing agreement and AMD's expected royalty payments from future product sales of China JVs' products to be developed on the basis of such licensed IP; AMD may not realize the benefits anticipated from any acquisitions, divestitures and/or joint ventures; sales patterns of AMD's PC products and semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products for game consoles; the level of international sales as compared to total sales; AMD's expected completion of its restructuring plan announced in October 2015 (the 2015 Restructuring Plan); that other unrecognized tax benefits will not materially change in the next 12 months; that AMD’s cash and cash equivalents balances and its secured revolving line of credit (Secured Revolving Line of Credit) will be sufficient to fund AMD’s operations including capital expenditures over the next 12 months; AMD’s ability to obtain sufficient external financing on favorable terms, or at all; AMD's expectation that based on the information presently known to management, the securities class action and the shareholder derivative suit will not have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, cash flows or results of operations; and AMD does not expect to pay dividends in the future. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively; AMD relies on GF to manufacture all of its microprocessor and accelerated processing unit (APU) products and a certain portion of its discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) products, with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, its business could be adversely impacted; AMD relies on third parties to manufacture its products, and if they are unable to do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, AMD’s business could be materially adversely affected; failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for AMD’s products could negatively impact its financial results; the success of AMD’s business is dependent upon its ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions; if AMD cannot generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, it may face a cash shortfall and be unable to make all of its planned investments in research and development or other strategic investments; the loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on AMD; AMD’s receipt of revenue from its semi-custom SoC products is dependent upon its technology being designed into third-party products and the success of those products;global economic uncertainty may adversely impact AMD’s business and operating results; AMD may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital requirements; AMD has a substantial amount of indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial position and prevent it from implementing its strategy or fulfilling its contractual obligations; the agreements governing AMD’s notes and the Secured Revolving Line of Credit impose restrictions on AMD that may adversely affect its ability to operate its business; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly competitive; uncertainties involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products could materially adversely affect it; the demand for AMD’s products depends in part on the market conditions in the industries into which they are sold. Fluctuations in demand for AMD’s products or a market decline in any of these industries could have a material adverse effect on its results of operations; the completion and impact of the 2015 Restructuring Plan, its transformation initiatives and any future restructuring actions could adversely affect it; AMD’s ability to design and introduce new products in a timely manner is dependent upon third-party intellectual property; AMD depends on third-party companies for the design, manufacture and supply of motherboards, software and other computer platform components to support its business; if AMD loses Microsoft Corporation’s support for its products or other software vendors do not design and develop software to run on AMD’s products, its ability to sell its products could be materially adversely affected; AMD’s reliance on third-party distributors and AIB partners subjects it to certain risks; AMD’s inability to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel may hinder its product development programs; in the event of a change of control, AMD may not be able to repurchase its outstanding debt as required by the applicable indentures and its Secured Revolving Line of Credit, which would result in a default under the indentures and its Secured Revolving Line of Credit; the semiconductor industry is highly cyclical and has experienced severe downturns that have materially adversely affected, and may continue to materially adversely affect

22



its business in the future; acquisitions, divestitures and/or joint ventures could disrupt its business, harm its financial condition and operating results or dilute, or adversely affect the price of, its common stock; AMD’s business is dependent upon the proper functioning of its internal business processes and information systems and modification or interruption of such systems may disrupt its business, processes and internal controls; data breaches and cyber-attacks could compromise AMD’s intellectual property or other sensitive information, be costly to remediate and cause significant damage to its business and reputation; AMD’s operating results are subject to quarterly and seasonal sales patterns; if essential equipment, materials or manufacturing processes are not available to manufacture its products, AMD could be materially adversely affected; if AMD’s products are not compatible with some or all industry-standard software and hardware, it could be materially adversely affected; costs related to defective products could have a material adverse effect on AMD; if AMD fails to maintain the efficiency of its supply chain as it responds to changes in customer demand for its products, its business could be materially adversely affected; AMD outsources to third parties certain supply-chain logistics functions, including portions of its product distribution, transportation management and information technology support services; AMD may incur future impairments of goodwill; AMD’s worldwide operations are subject to political, legal and economic risks and natural disasters, which could have a material adverse effect on it; worldwide political conditions may adversely affect demand for AMD’s products; unfavorable currency exchange rate fluctuations could adversely affect AMD; AMD’s inability to effectively control the sales of its products on the gray market could have a material adverse effect on it; if AMD cannot adequately protect its technology or other intellectual property in the United States and abroad, through patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks and other measures, it may lose a competitive advantage and incur significant expenses; AMD is a party to litigation and may become a party to other claims or litigation that could cause it to incur substantial costs or pay substantial damages or prohibit it from selling its products; AMD’s business is subject to potential tax liabilities; and AMD is subject to environmental laws, conflict minerals-related provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act as well as a variety of other laws or regulations that could result in additional costs and liabilities.
For a discussion of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, see “Part II, Item 1A—Risk Factors” beginning on page 39 and “Financial Condition” beginning on page 33 and other risks and uncertainties set forth below in this report or detailed in our other Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reports and filings.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this report and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes as of December 26, 2015 and December 27, 2014, and for each of the three years in the period ended December 26, 2015 as filed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
Overview
We are a global semiconductor company with facilities around the world. Within the global semiconductor industry, we offer primarily:

x86 microprocessors, as standalone devices or as incorporated as an accelerated processing unit (APU), chipsets, discrete graphics processing units (GPUs) and professional graphics; and

server and embedded processors, semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products and technology for game consoles. We also license portions of our intellectual property portfolio.

In this section, we will describe the general financial condition and the results of operations of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively, “us,” “our” or “AMD”), including a discussion of our results of operations for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 compared to the quarter and six months ended June 27, 2015, an analysis of changes in our financial condition and a discussion of our contractual obligations.

Net revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $1.027 billion, a 9% increase compared to the second quarter of 2015. The year over year increase was primarily due to a 15% increase in Computing and Graphics net revenue and a 5% increase in Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue. The increase in Computing and Graphics segment net revenue was primarily due to higher sales of our notebook microprocessors and GPU products. The increase in Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment net revenue was primarily driven by higher sales of our semi-custom SoCs and an increase in our non-recurring engineering revenue (NRE). Gross margin, as a percentage of net revenue, for the second quarter of 2016 was 31% compared to 25% in the second quarter of 2015. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2015 was adversely impacted by a technology node transition charge of $33 million, which accounted for three gross margin percentage points. In addition, gross margin of our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment improved in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015 due to lower cost of sales.

During the second quarter of 2016, we continued to execute our product roadmap and delivered new products. In April 2016, we announced the AMD FirePro™ W9100 with 32GB of memory support designed for large asset workflows with creative applications. In May 2016, we announced the availability of our Polaris architecture-based Radeon™ RX Series graphic cards. These Polaris-based graphic cards are designed to deliver premium virtual reality capability and improved performance and efficiency. Also in May, we announced the AMD FirePro S7100X GPU for blade servers (a self-contained server) designed as a graphics virtualization solution to provide workstation-class experience for up to 16 users. Also in May 2016, we announced our 7th Generation AMD A-Series Processors for notebooks equipped with advanced video, graphics, performance and security features.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 25, 2016 were $957 million, an increase of $241 million compared to March 26, 2016, primarily driven by the net cash proceeds received from the assembly, test, mark and pack (ATMP) joint venture transaction with Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co., Ltd. that occurred in the second quarter of 2016. Our total debt level remained flat from the first quarter of 2016 at $2.24 billion.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Wafer Supply Agreement. The Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA) governs the terms by which we purchase products manufactured by GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF).
Fifth Amendment to Wafer Supply Agreement. On April 16, 2015, we entered into a fifth amendment to the WSA. The primary effect of the fifth amendment was to establish volume purchase commitments and fixed pricing for the 2015 calendar year as well as to modify certain other terms of the WSA applicable to wafers for some of our microprocessor unit, graphics processor unit and semi-custom products to be delivered by GF to us during the 2015 calendar year.
Our total purchases from GF related to wafer manufacturing and research and development activities for the quarters ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 were $85 million and $246 million, respectively. Our total purchases from GF related to wafer manufacturing and research and development activities for the six months ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 were $293 million and $416 million, respectively.
Our currently known purchase obligations to GF for wafer manufacturing and research and development activities are approximately $434 million for fiscal 2016 which include certain wafer deliveries under the fifth amendment to the WSA that had been delayed to fiscal 2016. We are not able to meaningfully quantify or estimate our future purchase obligations to GF beyond this amount because we are currently in the process of negotiating a sixth amendment to the WSA. We expect that our future purchases from GF will continue to be material.
GF continues to be a related party of AMD because Mubadala Development Company PJSC (Mubadala) and Mubadala Technology Investments LLC (Mubadala Tech) are affiliated with West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH), our largest stockholder. GF, WCH and Mubadala Tech are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Mubadala.
Equity Interest Purchase Agreement - ATMP Joint Venture

On April 29, 2016, we and certain of our subsidiaries completed the sale of a majority of the equity interests in AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd., a wholly-foreign owned enterprise incorporated as a limited liability company, and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd., a Malaysian limited liability company, to affiliates of Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co., Ltd., a Chinese joint stock company (NFME), to form two joint ventures (collectively, the ATMP JV), pursuant to the terms of an Equity Interest Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 15, 2015 (the Equity Interest Purchase Agreement), between us and NFME. As a result of the sale, NFME’s affiliates own 85% of the equity interests in each ATMP JV while certain of our subsidiaries own the remaining 15%. We have no obligations to fund the ATMP JV.
As a result of the transaction, we received approximately $351 million, including purchase price adjustments, in net cash proceeds in the second quarter of 2016 for selling 85% of the equity interest in each of AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd. and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd. These proceeds, net of certain transaction costs, were included in investing activities on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 25, 2016. We estimate final net cash proceeds, excluding final purchase price adjustments which we expect will be settled in upcoming quarters, after payment of taxes and customary expenses in the current and future quarters, of approximately $320 million.
In connection with the divestiture, we recognized a pre-tax gain of $150 million within Other income (expense), net on our condensed consolidated statements of operations during the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016. The pre-tax gain reflects the excess of the sum of net cash proceeds and fair value of our retained 15% equity interests in the ATMP JV over the sum of the net book values of our former subsidiaries and other closing costs directly attributed to the divestiture. The above gain includes $12 million in excess of fair value of our retained interest over the corresponding net book values.

In determining the fair value of our retained 15% equity interests in the ATMP JV, we used quoted prices from comparable bids for this transaction. We also considered other factors including the control premium and the amount of consideration received for the portion sold.

We account for our equity interests in the ATMP JV under the equity method of accounting due to our significant influence over the ATMP JV. As of June 25, 2016, the carrying value of our investment in the ATMP JV was approximately $62 million. Opening balances of ATMP JV are currently undergoing a valuation analysis which may result in adjustment to the carrying value of the investment in ATMP JV, adjustment to the recognized gain on sale of the 85% equity interest or equity method income (loss) in ATMP JV.
 
Following the deconsolidation, the ATMP JV is our related party. The ATMP JV provides assembly, test, mark and pack (ATMP) services to us. We currently pay the ATMP JV for ATMP services on a cost-plus basis. Our total purchases from the ATMP JV in the second quarter of 2016 amounted to approximately $66 million. Our payable to the ATMP JV, as of June 25, 2016 was
$150 million also included amounts payable to the former subsidiaries, AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd. and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd., arising from the transactions prior to the sale.

We recorded a loss of $3 million in Equity in income (loss) of ATMP JV on our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016, which includes certain expenses incurred by us on behalf of the ATMP JV.
Equity Joint Venture - Intellectual Property Licensing Agreement
In February 2016, we and Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co., Ltd. (THATIC), a third-party Chinese entity (JV Partner) formed a joint venture comprised of two separate legal entities, China JV1 and China JV2 (collectively, the China JVs). Our equity share in China JV1 and China JV2 is a majority and minority interest, respectively, funded by our contribution of certain of our patents. The JV Partner is responsible for the initial and on-going financing of the China JVs’ operations. We have no obligations to fund the China JVs. The China JVs’ primary purpose is to support our expansion into the server and workstation product market in China. We licensed certain of our intellectual property (Licensed IP) to the China JVs for a total of approximately $293 million in license fees payable over several years contingent upon achievement of certain milestones. We also expect to receive a royalty based on the sales of the China JVs’ products to be developed on the basis of such Licensed IP. We will also provide certain engineering and technical support to the China JVs in connection with the product development.
We concluded the China JV1 and China JV2 are not operating joint ventures and are variable interest entities due to their reliance on on-going financing by JV Partner. We determined that we are not the primary beneficiary of either China JV1 or China JV2 and we will not consolidate either of these entities. We account for our investments in the China JVs under the equity method of accounting.
Income related to the Licensed IP will be recognized over the period commencing upon delivery of the first Licensed IP milestone through the date of the milestone that requires our continuing involvement in the product development process, and thereafter, together with royalty payments, will be recognized in income once earned. We will classify Licensed IP income and royalty income as other operating income. During the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016, we recognized $26 million and $33 million, respectively, of operating income related to the Licensed IP.
Our total exposure to losses through our investment into the China JVs is limited to our investments in the China JVs, which was zero as of June 25, 2016. Our share in the net losses of the China JVs for the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 was not material and is not recorded in our condensed consolidated statement of operations since we are not obligated to fund the China JVs losses in excess of our investment in the China JVs.
As of June 25, 2016, the total assets and liabilities of the China JVs were not material.
Critical Accounting Estimates
Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). The preparation of our financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts in our condensed consolidated financial statements. We evaluate our estimates on an on-going basis, including those related to our net revenue, inventories, asset impairments and income taxes. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of our assets and liabilities. Although actual results have historically been reasonably consistent with management’s expectations, the actual results may differ from these estimates or our estimates may be affected by different assumptions or conditions.
Management believes there have been no significant changes during the quarter and six months ended June 25, 2016 to the items that we disclosed as our critical accounting estimates in the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
We will perform an annual goodwill impairment analysis as of the first day of the fourth quarter of 2016 pursuant to our accounting policy. However, we will also test for goodwill impairment at any time during the year if there are indicators of impairment present. If there are declines in our market capitalization, business climate or operating results, we may incur impairment charges that could be material.

Results of Operations
Management, including the Chief Operating Decision Maker, who is our Chief Executive Officer, reviews and assesses our operating performance using segment net revenue and operating income (loss) before interest, other income (expense), net and income taxes. These performance measures include the allocation of expenses to the operating segments based on management’s judgment. We have the following two reportable segments:
the Computing and Graphics segment, which primarily includes desktop and notebook processors and chipsets, discrete GPUs and professional graphics; and
the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, which primarily includes server and embedded processors, semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products, development services, technology for game consoles and licensing portions of our intellectual property portfolio.
In addition to these reportable segments, we have an All Other category, which is not a reportable segment. This category primarily includes certain expenses and credits that are not allocated to any of the reportable segments because management does not consider these expenses and credits in evaluating the performance of the reportable segments. Also included in this category are employee stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and other special charges, net and amortization of acquired intangible assets.
We use a 52 or 53 week fiscal year ending on the last Saturday in December. The quarters ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 each consisted of 13 weeks. The six months ended June 25, 2016 and June 27, 2015 each consisted of 26 weeks.
Our operating results tend to vary seasonally with the markets in which our products are sold. For example, historically, first quarter PC product sales are generally lower than fourth quarter sales. In addition, with respect to our semi-custom SoC products for game consoles, we expect sales patterns to follow the seasonal trends of a consumer business with sales in the first half of the year being lower than sales in the second half of the year.

Computing and Graphics
Computing and Graphics net revenue of $435 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased by 15%, compared to net revenue of $379 million in the second quarter of 2015, primarily as a result of an 18% increase in unit shipments. The increase in unit shipments was primarily attributable to higher unit shipments of our notebook microprocessor products and GPU products due to higher demand.
Computing and Graphics net revenue of $895 million in the first six months of 2016 decreased by 2%, compared to $911 million in the first six months of 2015, as a result of a 4% decrease in average selling price, partially offset by a 1% increase in unit shipments. The decrease in average selling price was primarily attributable to a decrease in average selling price of our notebook microprocessor and chipset products, partially offset by an increase in average selling price of our GPU products. The increase in unit shipments was primarily attributable to higher unit shipments of our GPU products, partially offset by lower unit shipment of our microprocessor products.
Computing and Graphics operating loss was $81 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to an operating loss of $147 million in the second quarter of 2015. The improvement in operating results was primarily due to the increase in net revenue referenced above and a decrease in operating expenses, partially offset by an increase in cost of sales. Cost of sales increased
primarily due to higher unit shipments in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015. Operating expenses decreased for the reasons set forth under “Expenses” below.
Computing and Graphics operating loss was $151 million in the first six months of 2016 compared to operating loss of $222 million in the first six months of 2015. The improvement in operating results was primarily due to a decrease in operating expenses and a decrease in cost of sales, offset by the decrease in net revenue referenced above. Cost of sales decreased primarily due to lower unit shipments in the first six months of 2016, compared to the first six months of 2015. Operating expenses decreased for the reasons set forth under “Expenses” below.
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue of $592 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased by 5% compared to net revenue of $563 million in the second quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher unit shipments of our semi-custom SoC products and an increase in our NRE revenue.
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom net revenue of $964 million in the first six months of 2016 decreased by 9% compared to net revenue of $1,061 million in the first six months of 2015. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in unit shipments of our semi-custom SoC products, partially offset by an increase in our NRE revenue.
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom operating income was $84 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to operating income of $27 million in the second quarter of 2015. The improvement in operating results was primarily due to the absence of a technology node transition charge of $33 million recorded in the second quarter of 2015, the increase in net revenue referenced above and a $26 million IP licensing gain related to the Licensed IP to the China JVs, partially offset by an increase in operating expenses. Operating expenses increased for the reasons set forth under “Expenses” below.
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom operating income was $100 million in the first six months of 2016 compared to operating income of $72 million in the first six months of 2015. The improvement in operating results was primarily due to a decrease in cost of sales, in part due to the absence of a technology node transition charge of $33 million recorded in the first six months of 2015, and a $33 million IP licensing gain related to the Licensed IP to the China JVs, partially offset by the decrease in net revenue referenced above and an increase in operating expenses. Cost of sales decreased primarily due to lower unit shipments and lower manufacturing cost in the first six months of 2016 compared to the first six months of 2015. Operating expenses increased for the reasons set forth under “Expenses” below.
All Other
All Other operating loss of $11 million in the second quarter of 2016 included stock-based compensation expense of $18 million, offset by restructuring reversals of $7 million. All Other operating loss of $17 million in the second quarter of 2015 included stock-based compensation expense of $17 million.
All Other operating loss of $25 million in the first six months of 2016 primarily included stock-based compensation expense of $34 million, partially offset by restructuring reversals of $10 million. All Other operating loss of $124 million in the first six months of 2015 included restructuring and other special charges, net of $87 million, stock-based compensation expense of $34 million and $3 million related to amortization of acquired intangible assets. Restructuring and other special charges, net of $87 million included $76 million related to our decision to exit from the dense server systems business and $11 million related to our restructuring plan that was implemented in the fourth quarter of 2014.
International Sales
International sales as a percentage of net revenue were 77% in the second quarter of 2016 and 75% in the second quarter of 2015. The increase in international sales as a percentage of net revenue in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015 was primarily driven by a higher proportion of revenue from international sales of our semi-custom SoC products.
International sales as a percentage of net revenue were 80% in the first six months of 2016 and 75% in the first six months of 2015. The increase in international sales as percentage of net revenue was primarily driven by higher proportion of revenue from international sales of our semi-custom SoC products.
We expect that international sales will continue to be a significant portion of total sales in the foreseeable future. Substantially all of our sales transactions were denominated in U.S. dollars.

Gross Margin
Gross margin as a percentage of net revenue was 31% in the second quarter of 2016 compared to 25% in the second quarter of 2015. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2015 was adversely impacted by a technology node transition charge of $33 million, which accounted for three gross margin percentage points. In addition, gross margin of our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment improved in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015 due to lower cost of sales.
Gross margin as a percentage of net revenue was 32% in the first six months of 2016 compared to 28% in the first six months of 2015. Gross margin in the first six months of 2015 was adversely impacted by a technology node transition charge of $33 million, which accounted for two gross margin percentage points. In addition, gross margin of our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment improved in the first six months of 2016 compared to the first six months of 2015 due to lower cost of sales.
Expenses
Research and Development Expenses
Research and development expenses of $243 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased by $8 million, or 3%, compared to $235 million in the second quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to a $31 million increase in research and development expenses attributable to our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, partially offset by a $23 million decrease in research and development expenses attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment. Research and development expenses attributable to our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment increased primarily due to a $27 million increase in product engineering and design costs. Research and development expenses attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment decreased primarily due to a $27 million decrease in product engineering and design costs.
Research and development expenses of $485 million in the first six months of 2016 increased by $8 million, or 2%, compared to $477 million in the first six months of 2015. The increase was primarily due to a $53 million increase in research and development expenses attributable to our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, partially offset by a $44 million decrease in research and development expenses attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment. Research and development expenses attributable to our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment increased primarily due to a $48 million increase in product engineering and design costs and a $5 million increase in employee compensation and benefit expenses. Research and development expenses

27



attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment decreased primarily due to a $53 million decrease in product engineering and design costs, partially offset by a $9 million increase in employee compensation and benefit expenses.
Marketing, General and Administrative Expenses
Marketing, general and administrative expenses of $117 million in the second quarter of 2016 decreased by $17 million, or 13%, compared to $134 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease was primarily due to a $21 million decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment, primarily due to a $15 million decrease in sales and marketing activities and a $6 million decrease in other general and administrative expenses.
Marketing, general and administrative expenses of $222 million in the first six months of 2016 decreased by $43 million, or 16%, compared to $265 million in the first six months of 2015. The decrease was primarily due to a $42 million decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses attributable to our Computing and Graphics segment, primarily due to a $29 million decrease in sales and marketing activities and a $13 million decrease in other general and administrative expenses.
Restructuring and Other Special Charges, Net
2015 Restructuring Plan
In the third quarter of 2015, we implemented a restructuring plan focused on our ongoing efforts to simplify our business and better align resources around our priorities and business outlook. The 2015 Restructuring Plan involved a reduction of global headcount by approximately 5% and includes organizational actions such as outsourcing certain IT services and application development. The actions associated with the 2015 Restructuring Plan are expected to be substantially completed by the end of the third quarter 2016.

2014 Restructuring Plan
In the fourth quarter of 2014, we implemented a restructuring plan (2014 Restructuring Plan) designed to improve operating efficiencies. The 2014 Restructuring Plan involved a reduction of global headcount by approximately 6% and an alignment of our real estate footprint with our reduced headcount. In the first six months of 2015, we recorded an $11 million restructuring charge, which consisted of $4 million for severance and benefit costs and $7 million for facilities related costs. The 2014 Restructuring Plan was largely completed by the end of the third quarter of 2015. During the first six months of 2016, we recorded a restructuring charge reversal of $7 million, of which $5 million related to facilities costs associated with a lease amendment which reduced a lease liability previously accrued under this plan.

Dense Server Systems Business Exit
As a part of our strategy to simplify and sharpen our investment focus, we exited the dense server systems business, formerly SeaMicro, in the first quarter of 2015. As a result, we recorded a charge of $76 million in Restructuring and other special charges, net on our condensed consolidated statements of operations in the first six months of 2015. This charge included an impairment charge of $62 million related to the acquired intangible assets. We concluded that the carrying value of the acquired intangible assets associated with our dense server systems business was fully impaired as we did not have plans to utilize the related freedom fabric technology in any of our future products nor did we have any plans at that time to monetize the associated intellectual property. In addition, the exit charge consisted of a $7 million non-cash charge related to asset impairments, $4 million of severance and related benefits and $3 million for contract or program termination costs. We have substantially completed this exit activity during the first quarter of 2016.
Interest Expense
Interest expense of $41 million in the second quarter of 2016 was flat compared to the second quarter of 2015.
Interest expense of $81 million in the first six months of 2016 was flat compared to the first six months of 2015.
Other Income (Expense), Net
Other income, net of $150 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased by $153 million compared to $3 million Other expense, net in the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to the gain on sale of equity interests in ATMP JV of $150 million in the second quarter of 2016.
Other income, net of $150 million in the first six months of 2016 increased by $153 million compared to $3 million Other expense, net in the first six months of 2015 primarily due to the gain on sale of equity interests in ATMP JV of $150 million in the second quarter of 2016.
Income Taxes
In the second quarter of 2016, we recorded an income tax provision of $29 million. This included $2 million due primarily to foreign taxes in profitable locations and $2 million for withholding taxes applicable to license fee revenue from foreign locations partially offset by $2 million of tax benefits arising from other comprehensive income and Canadian tax credits. In addition, we recorded the tax effect of completion of the sale of a majority equity interest in two subsidiaries comprising $21 million of income tax expense in China and $6 million of withholding tax expense associated with a future repatriation of the gain generated in China by the Chinese portion of that transaction.
In future periods, we will apply the equity method of accounting to our 15% investment in the two former subsidiaries. Our share of applicable tax expense will be netted with the equity share of future profits or losses. In 2015, we recorded an income tax provision of $2 million related to the activities of the two former subsidiaries.
We have not recognized the tax benefit of future foreign tax credits associated with the withholding tax expense as the size and age profile of existing tax attributes does not allow us to satisfy the “more likely than not” criterion for the recognition of deferred tax assets.
For the six months ended June 25, 2016, we recorded an income tax provision of $30 million due to foreign taxes in profitable locations and items identified above.
In the second quarter of 2015 and six months ended June 27, 2015, we recorded an income tax provision of $1 million and $4 million, respectively, due to foreign taxes in profitable locations.
As of June 25, 2016, substantially all of our U.S. and Canadian deferred tax assets, net of deferred tax liabilities, continue to be subject to a valuation allowance. The realization of these assets is dependent on substantial future taxable income, which as

28



of June 25, 2016, in our estimate, is not more likely than not to be achieved.
Our gross unrecognized tax benefits as of June 25, 2016 were $41 million. We currently do not expect to reduce our unrecognized tax benefits over the next 12 months. We do not believe it is reasonably possible that other unrecognized tax benefits will materially change in the next 12 months. However, the settlement, resolution or closure of our tax audits are highly uncertain.
Stock-Based Compensation Expense

For all periods presented, we did not realize any excess tax benefit related to stock-based compensation and therefore did not record any related financing cash flows.
Stock-based compensation expense of $18 million in the second quarter of 2016 slightly increased from $17 million in the second quarter of 2015.
Stock-based compensation expense of $34 million in the first six months of 2016 was flat compared to the first six months of 2015.
FINANCIAL CONDITION
Liquidity and Capital Resources    
As of June 25, 2016, our cash and cash equivalents were $957 million compared to $785 million as of December 26, 2015. The increase during the first six months of 2016 was primarily due to the $351 million net proceeds from sale of equity interests in the ATMP JV, the $52 million associated with the licensing agreement with the China JVs and timing of accounts payable payments, partially offset by debt interest payments of $73 million and $47 million used for purchases of property, plant and equipment in the first six months of 2016. The percentage of cash and cash equivalents held domestically was 88% as of June 25, 2016, flat compared to December 26, 2015.
Our debt obligations of $2.2 billion net of unamortized debt issuance costs as of June 25, 2016 were flat compared to December 26, 2015.
We believe our cash and cash equivalents balance along with our Secured Revolving Line of Credit will be sufficient to fund operations, including capital expenditures, over the next 12 months. We believe that in the event we decide to obtain external funding, we may be able to access the capital markets on terms and in amounts adequate to meet our objectives.
Should we require additional funding, such as to meet payment obligations of our long-term debt when due, we may need to raise the required funds through borrowings or public or private sales of debt or equity securities, which may be issued from time to time under an effective registration statement, through the issuance of securities in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or a combination of one or more of the foregoing. Uncertain global economic conditions have in the past adversely impacted, and may in the future adversely impact, our business. If market conditions deteriorate, we may be limited in our ability to access the capital markets to meet liquidity needs on favorable terms or at all, which could adversely affect our liquidity and financial condition, including our ability to refinance maturing liabilities.
Operating Activities
Net cash used in operating activities was $127 million in the first six months of 2016 compared to $229 million in the first six months of 2015. The improvement in operating activities was primarily due to timing of accounts payable payments, lower wafer purchases, lower operating expenses including lower labor costs, as a result of restructuring actions and receipt of $52

29



million associated with the licensing agreement with the China JVs, partially offset by lower cash collections during the first six months of 2016 compared to the first six months of 2015 mainly due to timing.
Investing Activities
Net cash provided by investing activities was $303 million in the first six months of 2016, which consisted of net cash inflow of $351 million from sale of equity interests in the ATMP JV, partially offset by a cash outflow of $47 million for purchases of property, plant and equipment.
Net cash provided by investing activities was $196 million in the first six months of 2015, which consisted of net cash inflow of $235 million from purchases, sales and maturity of available for sale securities, partially offset by a cash outflow of $39 million for purchases of property, plant and equipment.
Financing Activities
Net cash used in financing activities was $4 million in the first six months of 2016 primarily due to $4 million net repayments of Secured Revolving Line of Credit borrowings.
Net cash provided by financing activities was $57 million in the first six months of 2015, primarily due to $100 million net proceeds from our Secured Revolving Line of Credit borrowings, of which $42 million was used to repay the remaining aggregate principal amount of our 6.00% Notes during the second quarter of 2015.
During the first six months of 2016 and 2015, we did not realize any excess tax benefit related to stock-based compensation. Therefore, we did not record any effects relating to financing cash flows for these periods.

(1) 
Represents estimated aggregate interest obligations for our outstanding debt obligations that are payable in cash, excluding non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs and the impacts of the interest rate swap agreements.
(2) 
We have purchase obligations for goods and services where payments are based, in part, on the volume or type of services we acquire. In those cases, we only included the minimum volume of purchase obligations in the table above. Purchase orders for goods and services that are cancelable upon notice and without significant penalties are not included in the amounts above. In addition, we have included in the table above obligations for software technology and licenses and IP licenses where payments are fixed and non-cancelable.
(3) 
Includes our currently known purchase obligations to GF for wafer manufacturing and research and development activities, which include certain wafer deliveries under the fifth amendment to the WSA that had been delayed to fiscal 2016. We cannot meaningfully quantify or estimate our future purchase obligations to GF beyond this amount because we are currently in the process of negotiating a sixth amendment to the WSA. We expect that our future purchases from GF will continue to be material.

Secured Revolving Line of Credit

Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On April 14, 2015, AMD and its subsidiaries, AMD International Sales & Service, Ltd. and ATI Technologies ULC (collectively, the Loan Parties), entered into an amended and restated loan and security agreement (the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement) by and among the Loan Parties, the financial institutions party thereto from time to time as lenders (the Lenders) and Bank of America, N.A., acting as agent for the Lenders (the Agent).

The Amended and Restated Loan Agreement provides for a Secured Revolving Line of Credit for a principal amount up to $500 million with up to $75 million available for issuance of letters of credit, which remained unchanged from the loan and security agreement dated November 12, 2013, as amended on December 11, 2014. Borrowings under the Secured Revolving Line of Credit are limited to up to 85% of eligible accounts receivable (90% for certain qualified eligible accounts receivable), minus specified reserves. The size of the commitments under the Secured Revolving Line of Credit may be increased by up to an aggregate amount of $200 million.

The Secured Revolving Line of Credit matures on April 14, 2020 and is secured by a first priority security interest in the Loan Parties’ accounts receivable, inventory, deposit accounts maintained with the Agent and other specified assets, including books and records.
As of June 25, 2016 and December 26, 2015, the Secured Revolving Line of Credit had an outstanding loan balance of $226 million and $230 million, at an interest rate of 4.25% and 4.00%, respectively. At June 25, 2016, the Secured Revolving Line of Credit also had $21 million related to outstanding letters of credit, and up to $163 million available for future borrowings. We report our intra-period changes in our revolving credit balance on a net basis in our condensed consolidated statement of cash flows as we intend the period of the borrowings to be brief, repaying borrowed amounts within 90 days. As of June 25, 2016, we were in compliance with all required covenants stated in the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement.
The agreements governing our 6.75% Notes, 7.75% Notes, 7.50% Notes, 7.00% Notes and our Secured Revolving Line of Credit contain cross-default provisions whereby a default under one agreement would likely result in cross defaults under agreements covering other borrowings. The occurrence of a default under any of these borrowing arrangements would permit the applicable note holders or the lenders under the Secured Revolving Line of Credit to declare all amounts outstanding under those borrowing arrangements to be immediately due and payable.

First Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On June 10, 2015, the Loan Parties entered into a first amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “First Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. Amendments to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by the First Amendment included the addition of exceptions to the liens and asset sale covenants to permit the Loan Parties to enter into certain supply chain finance arrangements, as well as the addition of certain definitions related thereto.

Second Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement


32



On April 29, 2016, the Loan Parties entered into a second amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Second Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. The primary amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by the Second Amendment related to the expansion of the definition of permitted asset dispositions to include the sale or transfer of inventory to the ATMP JV pursuant to the Equity Interest Purchase Agreement between AMD and NFME.

Third Amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement

On June 21, 2016, the Loan Parties entered into a third amendment to the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the “Third Amendment”) by and among the Loan Parties, the Lenders and the Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement. Amendments to the Amended and Restated Loan Agreement effected by the Third Amendment included the further expansion of the asset sale covenants to permit the Loan Parties to enter into certain supply chain finance arrangements.
Other Long-Term Liabilities
Other long-term liabilities in the contractual obligations table above primarily consists of $101 million of payments due under certain software and technology licenses that will be paid through 2020.
Other long-term liabilities in the contractual obligations table above exclude amounts recorded on our condensed consolidated balance sheet that do not require us to make cash payments, which, as of June 25, 2016, primarily consisted of $16 million of deferred gains resulting from certain real estate transactions that occurred in Sunnyvale, California in 1998, in Markham, Ontario, Canada in 2015 and 2008 and in Singapore in 2013 and $13 million interest accretion for future payments related to software and technology licenses. Deferred rent related to our facilities in Sunnyvale, California of $5 million and operating lease accruals of $5 million are excluded from other long-term liabilities in the contractual obligations table above as they are included in the operating leases obligations. Also excluded from other long-term liabilities in the contractual obligations table above are $12 million deferred tax liabilities, $3 million non-current unrecognized tax benefits and $3 million of environmental reserves, which represent potential cash payments that could be payable by us upon settlements with the related authorities. We have not included these amounts in the contractual obligations table above because we cannot make reasonably reliable estimates regarding the timing of the settlements with the related authorities, if any.
Operating Leases
We lease certain of our facilities and, in some jurisdictions, we lease the land on which our facilities are built under non-cancelable lease agreements that expire at various dates through 2028. We lease certain office equipment for terms ranging from one to five years. Total future non-cancelable lease obligations as of June 25, 2016 were $271 million, including $218 million of future lease payments and estimated operating costs related to the real estate transactions that occurred in Austin, Texas, Sunnyvale, California, Markham, Canada, and Singapore. During the second quarter of 2016, we signed an amendment to the lease agreement associated with our headquarters in Sunnyvale, California so that the lease expires in December 2017. In connection with the amendment, the lease payments were reduced for 2017.
Purchase Obligations
Our purchase obligations primarily include our obligations to purchase wafers and substrates from third parties, excluding our wafer purchase commitments to GF under the WSA. As of June 25, 2016, total non-cancelable purchase obligations were $667 million.
Obligations to GF
Our currently known purchase obligations to GF for wafer manufacturing and research and development activities are approximately $434 million in fiscal 2016 which include certain wafer deliveries under the fifth amendment to the WSA that had been delayed to fiscal 2016. We are not able to meaningfully quantify or estimate our future purchase obligations to GF beyond this amount because we are currently in the process of negotiating a sixth amendment to the WSA. We expect that our future purchases from GF will continue to be material.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of June 25, 2016, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1A.
RISK FACTORS


The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones we face. If any of the following risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected. In addition, you should consider the interrelationship and compounding effects of two or more risks occurring simultaneously.

Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit our ability to compete effectively.

Intel Corporation has been the market share leader for microprocessors for many years. Intel’s market share, margins and significant financial resources enable it to market its products aggressively, to target our customers and our channel partners with special incentives and to influence customers who do business with us. These aggressive activities have in the past and are likely in the future to result in lower unit sales and a lower average selling price for many of our products and adversely affect our margins and profitability.

Intel exerts substantial influence over computer manufacturers and their channels of distribution through various brand and other marketing programs. As a result of Intel’s position in the microprocessor market, Intel has been able to control x86 microprocessor and computer system standards and benchmarks and to dictate the type of products the microprocessor market requires of us. Intel also dominates the computer system platform, which includes core logic chipsets, graphics chips, motherboards and other components necessary to assemble a computer system. OEMs that purchase microprocessors for computer systems are highly dependent on Intel, less innovative on their own and, to a large extent, are distributors of Intel technology. Additionally, Intel is able to drive de facto standards and specifications for x86 microprocessors that could cause us and other companies to have delayed access to such standards.

As long as Intel remains in this dominant position, we may be materially adversely affected by Intel’s:

business practices, including rebating and allocation strategies and pricing actions, designed to limit our market share and margins;
product mix and introduction schedules;
product bundling, marketing and merchandising strategies;
exclusivity payments to its current and potential customers and channel partners;
de facto control over industry standards, and heavy influence on PC manufacturers and other PC industry participants, including motherboard, memory, chipset and basic input/output system, or BIOS, suppliers and software companies as well as the graphics interface for Intel platforms; and
marketing and advertising expenditures in support of positioning the Intel brand over the brand of its original equipment manufacturer OEM customers.

Intel has substantially greater financial resources than we do and accordingly spends substantially greater amounts on marketing and research and development than we do. We expect Intel to maintain its market position and to continue to invest heavily in marketing, research and development, new manufacturing facilities and other technology companies. To the extent Intel manufactures a significantly larger portion of its microprocessor products using more advanced process technologies, or introduces competitive new products into the market before we do, we may be more vulnerable to Intel’s aggressive marketing and pricing strategies for microprocessor products. For example, Intel has introduced microprocessors for low-cost notebooks, similar to products that we offer for low-cost notebooks.

Intel could also take actions that place our discrete GPUs at a competitive disadvantage, including giving one or more of our competitors in the graphics market, such as Nvidia Corporation, preferential access to its proprietary graphics interface or other useful information.

Intel’s position in the microprocessor market and integrated graphics chipset market, its introduction of competitive new products, its existing relationships with top-tier OEMs and its aggressive marketing and pricing strategies could result in lower unit sales and a lower average selling price for our products, which could have a material adverse effect on us.

We rely on GF to manufacture all of our microprocessor and APU products and a certain portion of our GPU products, with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy our manufacturing requirements, our business could be adversely impacted.


35



The WSA governs the terms by which we purchase products manufactured by GF. Pursuant to the WSA, we are required to purchase all of our microprocessor and APU product requirements, and a certain portion of our GPU product requirements, from GF with limited exceptions. If GF is unable to achieve anticipated manufacturing yields, remain competitive using or implementing advanced leading-edge process technologies needed to manufacture future generations of our products, manufacture our products on a timely basis at competitive prices or meet our capacity requirements, then we may experience delays in product launches, supply shortages for certain products or increased costs and our business could be materially adversely affected.

Additionally, if our requirements are less than the number of wafers that we committed to purchase, we could have excess inventory or higher inventory unit costs, both of which may adversely impact our gross margin and our results of operations.

We are currently in the process of negotiating a sixth amendment to the WSA, and we expect that our future purchases from GF will continue to be material. If we do not successfully conclude our negotiations, it could have a material adverse impact on our gross margin and our results of operations.

In addition, GF has relied on Mubadala Technology Investments LLC (Mubadala Tech) for its funding needs. If Mubadala Tech fails to adequately fund GF on a timely basis, or at all, GF’s ability to manufacture products for us could be materially adversely affected.

We rely on third parties to manufacture our products, and if they are unable to do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, our business could be materially adversely affected.

We rely on third-party wafer foundries to fabricate the silicon wafers for all of our products. We also rely on third-party manufacturers to assemble, test, mark and pack (ATMP) our products. It is important to have reliable relationships with all of these third-party manufacturing suppliers to ensure adequate product supply to respond to customer demand.

We cannot guarantee that these manufacturers or our other third-party manufacturing suppliers will be able to meet our near-term or long-term manufacturing requirements. If we experience supply constraints from our third-party manufacturing suppliers, we may be required to allocate the affected products amongst our customers, which could have a material adverse effect on our relationships with these customers and on our financial condition. In addition, if we are unable to meet customer demand due to fluctuating or late supply from our manufacturing suppliers, it could result in lost sales and have a material adverse effect on our business.

We do not have long-term commitment contracts with some of our third-party manufacturing suppliers. We obtain some of these manufacturing services on a purchase order basis and these manufacturers are not required to provide us with any specified minimum quantity of product beyond the quantities in an existing purchase order. Accordingly, we depend on these suppliers to allocate to us a portion of their manufacturing capacity sufficient to meet our needs, to produce products of acceptable quality and at acceptable manufacturing yields and to deliver those products to us on a timely basis and at acceptable prices. The manufacturers we use also fabricate wafers and assemble, test and package products for other companies, including certain of our competitors. They could choose to prioritize capacity for other customers, increase the prices that they charge us on short notice or reduce or eliminate deliveries to us, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.

Other risks associated with our dependence on third-party manufacturers include limited control over delivery schedules and quality assurance, lack of capacity in periods of excess demand, misappropriation of our intellectual property, dependence on several small undercapitalized subcontractors and limited ability to manage inventory and parts. Moreover, if any of our third-party manufacturers suffer any damage to facilities, lose benefits under material agreements, experience power outages, lack sufficient capacity to manufacture our products, encounter financial difficulties, are unable to secure necessary raw materials from their suppliers or suffer any other disruption or reduction in efficiency, we may encounter supply delays or disruptions. If we are unable to secure sufficient or reliable supplies of products, our ability to meet customer demand may be adversely affected and this could materially affect our business.

If we transition the production of some of our products to new manufacturers, we may experience delayed product introductions, lower yields or poorer performance of our products. If we experience problems with product quality or are unable to secure sufficient capacity from a particular third-party manufacturer, or if we for other reasons cease utilizing one of those suppliers, we may be unable to secure an alternative supply for any specific product in a short time frame. We could experience significant delays in the shipment of our products if we are required to find alternative third-party manufacturers, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.
    
On April 29, 2016, we consummated the transaction contemplated by the Equity Interest Purchase Agreement dated October 15, 2015 with Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics Co., Ltd. (JV Party), under which we sold to JV Party 85% of the equity interests

36



in our ATMP facilities consisting of AMD Technologies (China) Co., Ltd. (now Suzhou TF-AMD Semiconductor Co., Ltd.) and Advanced Micro Devices Export Sdn. Bhd., thereby forming two joint ventures (collectively, the JVs). Going forward, the majority of our ATMP services will be provided by the JVs and there is no guarantee that the JVs will be able to adequately fulfill our ATMP requirements as we transition operations to the JV Party, nor is there any guarantee that the JVs will be able to fulfill our long-term ATMP requirements. If we are unable to meet customer demand due to fluctuating or late supply from the JVs, it could result in lost sales and have a material adverse effect on our business.

Failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for our products could negatively impact our financial results.

Semiconductor manufacturing yields are a result of both product design and process technology, which is typically proprietary to the manufacturer, and low yields can result from design failures, process technology failures or a combination of both. Our third-party foundries, including GF, are responsible for the process technologies used to fabricate silicon wafers. If our third-party foundries experience manufacturing inefficiencies or encounter disruptions, errors or difficulties during production, we may fail to achieve acceptable yields or experience product delivery delays. We cannot be certain that our third-party foundries will be able to develop, obtain or successfully implement leading-edge process technologies needed to manufacture future generations of our products profitably or on a timely basis or that our competitors will not develop new technologies, products or processes earlier. Moreover, during periods when foundries are implementing new process technologies, their manufacturing facilities may not be fully productive. A substantial delay in the technology transitions to smaller process technologies could have a material adverse effect on us, particularly if our competitors transition to more cost effective technologies before us. Any decrease in manufacturing yields could result in an increase in per unit costs, which would adversely impact our gross margin and/or force us to allocate our reduced product supply amongst our customers, which could harm our relationships and reputation with our customers and materially adversely affect our business.

The success of our business is dependent upon our ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to our customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions.

Our success depends to a significant extent on the development, qualification, implementation and acceptance of new product designs and improvements that provide value to our customers. Our ability to develop, qualify and distribute, and have manufactured, new products and related technologies to meet evolving industry requirements, at prices acceptable to our customers and on a timely basis are significant factors in determining our competitiveness in our target markets. For example, a large portion of our Computing and Graphics revenue is focused on consumer desktop PC and notebook segments, which have experienced and continue to experience a decline driven by, among other factors, the adoption of smaller form factors, increased competition and changes in replacement cycles. As consumers adopt new form factors, have new product feature preferences or have different requirements than those consumers in the PC market, PC sales could be negatively impacted, which could adversely impact our business. Our product roadmap includes a new x86 processor core codenamed “Zen” to help drive our re-entry into high-performance and server computing. We cannot assure you that our efforts to execute our product roadmap and address markets beyond our core PC market will result in innovative products and technologies that provide value to our customers. If we fail to or are delayed in developing, qualifying or shipping new products or technologies that provide value to our customers and address these new trends or if we fail to predict which new form factors consumers will adopt and adjust our business accordingly, we may lose competitive positioning, which could cause us to lose market share and require us to discount the selling prices of our products. Although we make substantial investments in research and development, we cannot be certain that we will be able to develop, obtain or successfully implement new products and technologies on a timely basis.

Delays in developing, qualifying or shipping new products can also cause us to miss our customers’ product design windows or, in some cases, breach contractual obligations or cause us to pay penalties. If our customers do not include our products in the initial design of their computer systems or products, they will typically not use our products in their systems or products until at least the next design configuration. The process of being qualified for inclusion in a customer’s system or product can be lengthy and could cause us to further miss a cycle in the demand of end-users, which also could result in a loss of market share and harm our business. In addition, market demand requires that products incorporate new features and performance standards on an industry-wide basis. Over the life of a specific product, the sale price is typically reduced over time. The introduction of new products and enhancements to existing products is necessary to maintain the overall corporate average selling price. If we are unable to introduce new products with sufficiently high sale prices or to increase unit sales volumes capable of offsetting the reductions in the sale prices of existing products over time, our business could be materially adversely affected.

If we cannot generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, we may face a cash shortfall and be unable to make all of our planned investments in research and development or other strategic investments.

Our ability to fund research and development expenditures depends on generating sufficient revenue and cash flow from operations and the availability of external financing, if necessary. Our research and development expenditures, together with

37



ongoing operating expenses, will be a substantial drain on our cash flow and may decrease our cash balances. If new competitors, technological advances by existing competitors or other competitive factors require us to invest significantly greater resources than anticipated in our research and development efforts, our operating expenses would increase. If we are required to invest significantly greater resources than anticipated in research and development efforts without an increase in revenue, our operating results could decline.

We regularly assess markets for external financing opportunities, including debt and equity financing. Additional debt or equity financing may not be available when needed or, if available, may not be available on satisfactory terms. The health of the credit markets may adversely impact our ability to obtain financing when needed. Any downgrades from credit rating agencies such as Moody’s or Standard & Poor’s may adversely impact our ability to obtain external financing or the terms of such financing. Credit agency downgrades or concerns regarding our credit worthiness may impact relationships with our suppliers, who may limit our credit lines. Our inability to obtain needed financing or to generate sufficient cash from operations may require us to abandon projects or curtail planned investments in research and development or other strategic initiatives. If we curtail planned investments in research and development or abandon projects, our products may fail to remain competitive and our business would be materially adversely affected.

The loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on us.

Collectively, our top two and our top five customers accounted for approximately 54% and 74% of our net revenue, respectively, during the second quarter of 2016. On a segment basis, during the second quarter of 2016, five customers accounted for approximately 59% of the net revenue of our Computing and Graphics segment and five customers accounted for approximately 97% of the net revenue of our Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment. We expect that a small number of customers will continue to account for a substantial part of revenue of our businesses in the future. If one of our key customers decides to stop buying our products, or if one of these customers materially reduces or reorganizes its operations or its demand for our products, our business would be materially adversely affected.

Our receipt of revenue from our semi-custom SoC products is dependent upon our technology being designed into third-party products and the success of those products.

The revenue that we receive from our semi-custom SoC products is in the form of non-recurring engineering fees charged to third parties for design and development services and revenue received in connection with sales of our semi-custom SoC products to these third parties. As a result, our ability to generate revenue from our semi-custom products depends on our ability to secure customers for our semi-custom design pipeline, our customers’ desire to pursue the project, and our semi-custom SoC products being incorporated into those customer’s products. Any revenue from sales of our semi-custom SoC products is directly related to sales of the third-party’s products and reflective of their success in the market. Moreover, we have no control over the marketing efforts of these third parties, and we cannot make any assurances that sales of their products will be successful in current or future years. Consequently, the semi-custom SoC product revenue expected by us may not be fully realized and our operating results may be adversely affected.

Global economic uncertainty may adversely impact our business and operating results.

Uncertain global economic conditions have in the past and may in the future adversely impact our business, including, without limitation, a slowdown in the Chinese economy, one of the largest global markets for desktop and notebook PCs. Uncertainty in the worldwide economic environment may negatively impact consumer confidence and spending causing our customers to postpone purchases. In addition, during challenging economic times, our current or potential future customers may experience cash flow problems and as a result may modify, delay or cancel plans to purchase our products. Additionally, if our customers are not successful in generating sufficient revenue or are unable to secure financing, they may not be able to pay, or may delay payment of, accounts receivable that they owe us. The risk related to our customers’ potentially defaulting on or delaying payments to us is increased because we expect that a small number of customers will continue to account for a substantial part of our revenue. Any inability of our current or potential future customers to pay us for our products may adversely affect our earnings and cash flow. Moreover, our key suppliers may reduce their output or become insolvent, thereby adversely impacting our ability to manufacture our products. In addition, uncertain economic conditions may make it more difficult for us to raise funds through borrowings or private or public sales of debt or equity securities.

We may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service our debt obligations or meet our working capital requirements.

Our ability to make payments on and to refinance our debt will depend on our financial and operating performance, which may fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter, and is subject to prevailing economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. We cannot assure you that we will be able to generate cash flow or that we
