Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Seventh Amendment to the Wafer Supply Agreement

On January 28, 2019, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a seventh amendment (the “Seventh Amendment”) to the Wafer Supply Agreement with GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (“GF”). The Seventh Amendment modifies certain purchase commitments, pricing and other terms of the Wafer Supply Agreement applicable to wafer purchases at the 12 nm technology node and above by the Company for the period commencing on January 1, 2019 and continuing through March 1, 2024.

The Seventh Amendment also provides the Company with full flexibility to contract with any wafer foundry with respect to all products manufactured using 7nm and smaller technology nodes without any one-time payments or royalties by the Company to GF.

Further, the Company and GF agreed to modify the annual wafer purchase targets previously agreed to in the sixth amendment to the Wafer Supply Agreement for years 2019 and 2020. The parties also agreed to an annual wafer purchase target for 2021 and agreed to pricing for wafers purchased for years 2019, 2020 and 2021. If the Company does not meet the annual wafer purchase target for any of these years, the Company will be required to pay to GF a portion of the difference between the actual wafer purchases and the wafer purchase target for that year. The Company expects that its future purchases from GF will be material under the Wafer Supply Agreement, which is in place until 2024.

The foregoing description is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Seventh Amendment, a copy of which will be filed with a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

          "In 2018 we delivered our second straight year of significant revenue growth, market share gains, expanded gross margin and improved profitability based on our high-performance products. Importantly, we more than doubled our EPYC processor shipments sequentially and delivered record GPU datacenter revenue in the quarter," said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO.  “Despite near-term graphics headwinds, 2019 is shaping up to be another exciting year driven by the launch of our broadest and most competitive product portfolio ever with our next-generation 7nm Ryzen, Radeon, and EPYC products.”

2018 Annual Results
Revenue of $6.48 billion was up 23 percent year-over-year primarily driven by higher revenue in the Computing and Graphics segment.
Gross margin was 38 percent compared to 34 percent for the prior year. Non-GAAP(1) gross margin was 39 percent compared to 34 percent in the prior year. Gross margin expansion was primarily driven by our new Ryzen TM, EPYC TM and Radeon TM products.
Operating income was $451 million compared to $127 million in the prior year. Non-GAAP operating income was $633 million compared to $224 million in the prior year. The operating income improvement was primarily due to higher revenue and gross margin expansion partially offset by higher operating expenses.
Net income was $337 million compared to a net loss of $33 million in the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $514 million compared to $103 million in the prior year.
Diluted earnings per share was $0.32 compared to a loss per share of $0.03 in 2017. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.46 compared to $0.10 in the prior year.
Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $1.16 billion at the end of the year, down slightly from $1.18 billion at the end of 2017.
Free cash flow was negative $129 million for the year due to higher inventory related to new products and to the timing of collections.

Q4 2018 Results
Revenue of $1.42 billion was up 6 percent year-over-year primarily driven by the Computing and Graphics segment. Revenue was down 14 percent compared to the prior quarter as a result of

2



lower revenue in the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment. Third quarter 2018 included approximately $125 million of IP-related revenue.
Gross margin was 38 percent compared to 34 percent a year ago and 40 percent in the prior quarter. Fourth quarter gross margin included a $45 million charge related to older technology licenses that are no longer being used. Non-GAAP gross margin was 41 percent compared to 34 percent a year ago and 40 percent in the prior quarter. Gross margin improvements were primarily driven by Ryzen and EPYC processor sales.
Operating income was $28 million compared to an operating loss of $2 million a year ago and operating income of $150 million in the prior quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income was $109 million compared to $19 million a year ago and $186 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year improvement was primarily due to the ramp of higher margin products in the Computing and Graphics segment. The decrease compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to seasonally lower Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue and the absence of IP-related revenue, partially offset by the benefit of new Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon products.
Net income was $38 million compared to a net loss of $19 million a year ago and net income of $102 million in the prior quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $87 million compared to $8 million a year ago and $150 million in the prior quarter.
Diluted earnings per share was $0.04 compared to a loss per share of $0.02 a year ago and diluted earnings per share of $0.09 in the prior quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share was $0.08 compared to $0.01 a year ago and $0.13 in the prior quarter.
Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $1.16 billion at the end of the quarter as compared to $1.06 billion at the end of the prior quarter.
Free cash flow was $79 million for the quarter.

Quarterly Financial Segment Summary
Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $986 million, up 9 percent year-over-year and 5 percent compared to the prior quarter driven by strong sales of Ryzen processors.
Operating income was $115 million compared to $33 million a year ago and $100 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year improvement was primarily driven by the ramp of Ryzen processors. The improvement compared to the prior quarter was primarily driven by Ryzen processors and datacenter GPUs, which more than offset the benefit of IP-related revenue in the third quarter of 2018.
Client processor average selling price (ASP) was up year-over-year and sequentially driven by Ryzen processor sales.
GPU ASP was up year-over-year and sequentially primarily due to higher datacenter GPU sales.

3



Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $433 million, flat year-over-year. Revenue declined 39 percent compared to the prior quarter driven by seasonally lower semi-custom sales, partially offset by strong EPYC datacenter processor sales.
Operating loss was $6 million compared to an operating loss of $13 million a year ago and operating income of $86 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year improvement was primarily due to higher EPYC datacenter processor revenue partially offset by lower semi-custom sales and server-related investments. The decrease compared to the prior quarter was due to seasonally lower semi-custom sales, partially offset by higher EPYC datacenter processor revenue.
All Other operating loss was $81 million compared to operating losses of $22 million year-over-year and $36 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to the $45 million charge related to older technology licenses.

Current Outlook
AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations. The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under “Cautionary Statement” below.

For the first quarter of 2019, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $1.25 billion, plus or minus $50 million, a decrease of approximately 12 percent sequentially and 24 percent year-over-year. The sequential decrease is expected to be primarily driven by continued softness in the graphics channel and seasonality across the business. The year-over-year decrease is expected to be primarily driven by lower graphics sales due to excess channel inventory, the absence of blockchain-related GPU revenue and lower memory sales. In addition, semi-custom revenue is expected to be lower year-over-year while Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon datacenter GPU product sales are expected to increase. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 41 percent in the first quarter of 2019. In addition, the Company expects to record a $60 million IP licensing gain which will be a benefit to operating income and recorded on the licensing gain line of the P&L.
For full year 2019, AMD expects high single digit percentage revenue growth driven by Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon datacenter GPU product sales as the Company ramps 7nm products throughout the year. AMD expects non-GAAP gross margin to be greater than 41 percent for 2019.

AMD Teleconference
AMD will hold a conference call for the financial community at 2:30 p.m. PT (5:30 p.m. ET) today to discuss its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018 financial results. AMD will provide a real-time audio broadcast of the teleconference on the Investor Relations page of its website at www.amd.com. The webcast will be available for 12 months after the conference call.

(1) The three months and year ended December 30, 2017 GAAP net loss per share is calculated using basic shares.
(2) The three months and year ended December 30, 2017 do not include 100.6 million shares related to the conversion of the Company’s 2026 Convertible Notes and the interest expense add-back to Non-GAAP net income because their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive under the "if-converted' method.

Cautionary Statement
    
This document contains forward-looking statements concerning Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) such as the features, functionality, availability, timing and expected benefits of AMD’s future products and technologies including, Radeon™ VII graphics processors, AMD’s 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processors, and the next generation AMD EPYC™ processors, codenamed “Rome”; AMD’s expected first quarter 2019 and fiscal 2019 financial outlook including, revenue along with the expected drivers of such revenue, and non-GAAP gross margin; and expected IP licensing gain, 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," "projects" and other terms with similar meaning. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this document are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Such statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond AMD's control, that could cause actual results and other future events to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and statements. 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 has a wafer supply agreement with GF with obligations to purchase all of its microprocessor and APU product requirements, and a certain portion of its GPU product requirements from GF with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, AMD’s 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; AMD’s products may be subject to security vulnerabilities that could have a material adverse effect on AMD; 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; 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 large 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 AMD’s ability to operate its business; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly competitive; AMD’s worldwide operations are subject to political, legal and economic risks and natural disasters, which could have a material adverse effect on it; AMD’s issuance to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of warrants to purchase 75 million shares of its common stock, if and when exercised, will dilute the ownership interests of AMD’s existing stockholders, and the conversion of the 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (2.125% Notes) may dilute the ownership interest of AMD’s existing stockholders, or may otherwise depress the price of its common stock; 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; 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 add-in-board (AIB) partners subjects it to certain risks; AMD may incur future impairments of goodwill and technology license purchases; AMD’s inability to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel may hinder its business; 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 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; 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’s stock price is subject to volatility; 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. Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2018.


1.
In this earnings press release, in addition to GAAP financial results, AMD has provided non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect certain adjustments as presented in the tables in this earnings press release. AMD also provided adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental non-GAAP measures of its performance. These items are defined in the footnotes to the selected corporate data tables provided at the end of this earnings press release. AMD is providing these financial measures because it believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to compare its operating results for current and historical periods and also because AMD believes it assists investors in comparing AMD’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance and for the other reasons described in the footnotes to the selected data tables. Refer to the data tables at the end of this earnings press release.

The Company presents “Adjusted EBITDA” as a supplemental measure of its performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the Company is determined by adjusting operating income for stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization expense. In addition, the Company also included an impairment of technology licenses in the three months and year ended December 29, 2018. The Company calculates and presents Adjusted EBITDA because management believes it is of importance to investors and lenders in relation to its overall capital structure and its ability to borrow additional funds. In addition, the Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes this measure assists investors in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to the GAAP operating measure of operating income (loss) or GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest income and expense and income taxes that can affect cash flows.
 
 
**
The Company also presents free cash flow as a supplemental Non-GAAP measure of its performance. Free cash flow is determined by adjusting GAAP net cash provided by (used in) operating activities for capital expenditures. The Company calculates and communicates free cash flow in the financial earnings press release because management believes it is of importance to investors to understand the nature of these cash flows. The Company’s calculation of free cash flow may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view free cash flow as an alternative to GAAP liquidity measures of cash flows from operating activities. In 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows - Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which reclassified certain cash receipts from operating activities to investing activities, with retrospective application. All periods presented conform to the classification requirements of the standard. The adoption of this standard does not reflect a change in the underlying business or activities and had no material impact on the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows.
 
 

The Company has provided reconciliations within the earnings press release of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

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; the ability of GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements; the ability of third party manufacturers to manufacture AMD products on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies; the ability of third party manufacturers to achieve expected manufacturing yields; AMD’s ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its customers; AMD’s ability to generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing; the loss of a significant customer; AMD’s ability to generate revenue from its semi-custom SoC products; actual or perceived security vulnerabilities of AMD’s products; potential data breaches and cyber-attacks; quarterly and seasonal sales patterns that may affect AMD’s business; global economic uncertainty; AMD’s ability to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital requirements; AMD’s large amount of indebtedness; restrictions imposed by agreements governing AMD’s debt and its secured revolving line of credit; the competitive nature of the markets in which AMD’s products are sold; political, legal and economic risks and natural disasters; the dilutive effect on shareholders if West Coast Hitech L.P. exercises its warrants to purchase AMD’s common stock, and the conversion of AMD’s 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026; uncertainties involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products; fluctuations in demand or a market decline for AMD’s products; AMD’s reliance on third-party intellectual property to design and introduce new products in a timely manner; AMD’s reliance on third-party companies for the design, manufacture and supply of motherboards, software and other computer platform components; AMD’s reliance on Microsoft Corporation’s support and other software vendors; AMD’s reliance on third-party distributors and AIB partners; future impairments of goodwill and technology license purchases; AMD’s ability to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel; AMD’s ability to repurchase its debt in the event of a change of control; the highly cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry; future acquisitions, divestitures and/or joint ventures that may disrupt AMD’s business; modification or interruption of internal business processes and information systems; availability of essential equipment, materials or manufacturing processes to manufacture AMD’s products; compatibility of AMD’s products with industry-standard software and hardware; costs related to defective products; the efficiency of AMD’s supply chain; AMD’s ability to rely on third parties’ certain supply-chain logistics functions, product distribution, transportation management and information technology support services; stock price volatility; worldwide political conditions; unfavorable currency exchange rate fluctuations; AMD’s ability to effectively control the sales of its products on the gray market; AMD’s ability to protect its technology or intellectual property; current and future litigation; potential tax liabilities; and environmental laws, conflict minerals-related provisions, the Consumer Protection Act, and other laws or regulations that could result in additional costs and liabilities. Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the year ending September 29, 2018. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES In this presentation, in addition to GAAP financial results, AMD has provided non-GAAP financial measures including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, free cash flow, and Adjusted EBITDA. AMD is providing these financial measures because it believes this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier for investors to compare its operating results for current and historical periods and also because AMD believes it assists investors in comparing AMD’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance and for the other reasons described in the footnotes to the selected data tables at the end of AMD’s earnings press release. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this presentation should be viewed in addition to and not as a substitute for or superior to AMD’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should be read only in conjunction with AMD’s Consolidated Financial Statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures referenced are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the Appendices at the end of this presentation. | AMD Q4 AND FY 2018 FINANCIAL RESULTS | JANUARY 29, 2019

Q1 2019 AND FY 2019 FINANCIAL OUTLOOK – NON GAAP(1) Q1 2019 FY 2019 $1.25 Billion Up high single digit Revenue +/- $50 Million percentage y/y Gross Margin % ~41% >41% Licensing Gain $60 Million $60 Million Operating Expenses ~$480 Million ~29% Operating Expenses/Revenue % Interest Expense, Taxes and Other ~$25 Million - Taxes - ~4% of pre-tax Income Diluted Share Count(2) ~1.185 Billion ~1.197 Billion Q1’19 revenue expected to decrease ~12 q/q and 24% y/y. The q/q decrease is primarily driven by continued softness in the graphics channel and seasonality across the business. The y/y decrease is primarily driven by lower graphics sales due to excess channel inventory, the absence of blockchain related GPU revenue and lower memory sales. Semi-custom revenue is expected to be lower y/y while AMD Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon datacenter GPU sales are expected to increase. Full year 2019 revenue expected to grow driven by Ryzen, EPYC and Radeon datacenter GPU sales and ramp of 7nm products. 1. These are forward looking statements. See Cautionary Statement on Slide 2. AMD’s outlook statements are based on current expectations as of January 29, 2019. AMD undertakes no intent or obligation to publicly update or revise its outlook statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent that disclosure may be required by law. 2.

APPENDICES Share Count Overview Shares (millions) (3) Q4'18 Q3'18 FY'18 Q1'19 FY'19 Actual Actual Actual Estimate Estimate Basic Shares 1,002 987 982 1,007 1,021 Dilutive impacts from: Employee Equity Grants (1) 23 34 33 23 20 75 million share Warrant (1) 54 55 49 54 55 Diluted Shares (without 2026 Convertible Notes) 1,079 1,076 1,064 1,084 1,096 2026 Convertible Notes (2) 100.6 100.6 100.6 100.6 100.6 Diluted Shares (with 2026 Convertible Notes) 1,180 1,177 1,165 1,185 1,197 Moving forward, assuming positive earnings per share, there are potential factors that may impact AMD's diluted share count, including: • The 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 (2026 Convertible Notes) which have cash and non-cash interest expense components. There are 100.6 million shares underlying the 2026 Convertible Notes • The warrant to purchase 75 million shares (Warrant) granted in 2016 to a Mubadala entity, in consideration for rights under the sixth amendment to our Wafer Supply Agreement with GLOBALFOUNDRIES, and • On-going employee equity grants. The table above provides an estimate of shares that may be used when calculating GAAP and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for Q1`19 and FY'19. (1) The dilutive impact from the Warrant and employee equity grants are based on the Treasury Stock method and is dependent upon the average stock price during the period. Q4’18 and Q3'18 average quarterly stock price was $21.67 and $22.57. Q4'18 average quarterly stock price was assumed for Q1'19 average quarterly stock price estimate. FY'18 average annual stock price was $17.21, which was assumed for FY'19 average annual stock price estimate. (2) The dilutive impact from the 2026 Convertible Notes is based on the If-Converted method, where the interest costs associated with the 2026 Convertible Notes are added back to the Net Income and the 100.6 million shares underlying the 2026 Convertible Notes are assumed to be converted and are added to the share count. The impact from the 2026 Convertible Notes, if dilutive, is included in diluted EPS calculation. For the GAAP computation, the add-back to net income includes cash and non-cash interest expense, while only the cash interest expense is added back to non-GAAP net income (3) Share counts are weighted average shares. 31 |AMD Q4 AND FY 2018 FINANCIAL RESULTS | JANUARY 29, 2019
