Attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein is financial information and commentary by Stacy J. Smith, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Intel Corporation for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and forward-looking statements relating to 2012 and the third quarter of 2012 as posted on the company’s investor website,, on July 17, 2012. The information in this report shall not be treated as filed for purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States (U.S.) generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this document contains non-GAAP financial measures for gross margin, gross margin percentage, operating income, net income, and diluted earnings per share. This document also provides the company’s forward-looking outlook for non-GAAP gross margin percentage.  A reconciliation of the adjustments to our GAAP forward-looking outlook, GAAP results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, and prior period GAAP results is included in the tables that are part of Exhibit 99.1.

“Supplemental Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP Results,” included in Exhibit 99.1, includes an explanation of the ways management uses these non-GAAP measures and the reasons why management views these measures provide useful information for investors. However, non-GAAP financial information has limitations and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
