On January 11, 2023, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K disclosing that Mr. Devinder Kumar would retire as Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer on January 23, 2023.

AMD is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K/A to report that AMD entered into a Retirement Transition Agreement and General Release with Mr. Kumar on February 15, 2023 (the “Retirement Agreement”) in order to ensure a smooth transition and to recognize Mr. Kumar’s significant contributions over his long tenure with AMD. Mr. Kumar will remain with AMD as an Executive Vice President and employee through April 14, 2023 and will continue to receive his current base salary and employee benefits.

Pursuant to the Retirement Agreement, upon his termination of employment, Mr. Kumar will receive:

Twelve (12) months of accelerated vesting with respect to his outstanding unvested time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and stock options;

An extension of the period during which he may elect to exercise his vested and outstanding stock options (including any stock options that vest pursuant to the Retirement Agreement) until the earlier of the second anniversary of his termination date or the expiration date of stock option;

Deemed satisfaction of the service vesting conditions applicable to his 2020 performance-based restricted stock unit (“PRSU”) award, with the number of PRSUs to be earned determined based on actual performance for the three-year performance period ending August 9, 2023;

Deemed satisfaction of the service and performance vesting conditions with respect to a number of PRSUs covered by each of his 2021 and 2022 PRSU awards equal to the target number of PRSUs covered by the awards, prorated based on his separation date relative to the three (3)-year performance periods applicable to the awards; and

Payment for COBRA premiums for up to twelve (12) months following his separation, based on his coverage elections as of his separation date.

In consideration of the separation benefits payable under the Retirement Agreement, Mr. Kumar must agree to release us from all claims and liabilities under federal and state laws arising prior to his separation date.
