    This presentation contains forward-looking statements concerning AMD and technology partner product offerings which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are commonly identified by words such as "would," "may," "expects," "believes," "plans," "intends," “strategy,” “roadmaps,” "projects" and other terms with similar meaning. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this presentation are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this presentation and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. With respect to AMD, risks include the possibility that Intel Corporation's pricing, marketing and rebating programs, product bundling, standard setting, new product introductions or other activities targeting AMD's business will prevent attainment of AMD's current plans; customers stop buying AMD’s products or materially reduce their operations or demand for its products; AMD will be unable to develop, launch and ramp new products and technologies in the volumes and mix required by the market and at mature yields on a timely basis; standards promulgated by open standards will be adopted at rates slower than currently projected, demand for computers and, in turn, demand for AMD’s products will be lower than currently expected; there will be unexpected variations in market growth and demand for AMD’s products and technologies in light of the product mix that it may have available at any particular time or a decline in demand; and AMD will be unable to maintain the level of investment in research and development that is required to remain competitive. Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2009.
