Celebrates Milestone of $10 Billion Invested Worldwide

 

 

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Intel Capital invests in 4 companies totaling $24.5 million.
  • Intel Capital crosses $10 billion total invested milestone.
  • New Intel Capital investments support innovation across the compute continuum.

 

 

NEW YORK, May 23, 2011 – Intel Capital, Intel Corporation's global investment organization, today announced four U.S. investments to drive continued innovation across the entire continuum of computing.

 

The new deals total approximately $24.5 million and include CrowdStar, a developer of social games on Facebook and mobile platforms; iStreamPlanet, a provider of live Web broadcast management and automated video workflow; Music Mastermind, an independent entertainment and technology company; and PerspecSys, a cloud data security provider. The new investments were announced at an Intel Capital event in New York.

 

The computing continuum is Intel's vision of delivering a smarter, more secure, and always-connected computing experience that spans a range of device segments – including laptops, cars, smartphones and smart TVs – and the Internet data centers to which they connect.

 

"Intel Capital supports entrepreneurship all over the globe, helping to turn breakthrough ideas into successful companies," said Arvind Sodhani, president, Intel Capital and executive vice president, Intel. "The explosion of computing has created endless opportunities for the development of interesting applications that deliver unique user experiences. Intel Capital's investments in these companies will help advance applications ranging from cloud computing security to an enhanced entertainment experience."

 

With the four new investments announced today, along with recently announced deals in China and India, Intel Capital has surpassed $10 billion in total investments since its inception.

 

"This milestone is a significant achievement for Intel Capital and represents our dedication to continuously support companies pushing the edge of technology innovation," Sodhani said.

 

Details on the new investments follow:

 

CrowdStar is a global developer of social games with a growing community of 31 million monthly active users. CrowdStar is home to some of Facebook's most popular, fun and entertaining games, including "Happy Aquarium," "Happy Island," "Happy Pets," "CrowdStar's It Girl" and "Zoo Paradise." A YouWeb-incubated company, along with recently acquired former Intel Capital portfolio company OpenFeint, CrowdStar has quickly become one of the most successful developers in social gaming. CrowdStar will use the funding for hiring and acquiring talent.

 

iStreamPlanet develops and operates live and on-demand content creation, management, security, monetization and delivery products and services that bring media experiences to life by creating content once and delivering across multiple screens and devices. This includes Over-The-Top (OTT) and TV Everywhere (TVE) live and on-demand HD video delivery, content protection, management, monetization, rich media experiences, collaboration and analytics. iStreamPlanet has streamed high-profile events to millions of viewers, including "NBC Sunday Night Football," The Championships at Wimbledon, U.S. Open Golf, Notre Dame college football, the Ryder Cup and the 2011 Kentucky Derby. iStreamPlanet and Intel also worked closely together to build out the Olympic Cloud Origin Services for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. The investment will be used to expand U.S. operations and continue to build out in European markets.

 

Music Mastermind is the developer of SoundBetter, the audio processing suite behind its consumer-focused platform. This groundbreaking technology eliminates the traditional effort required to make music, breaking down barriers hindering creativity and allowing anyone to instantly become a recording artist. Music Mastermind is currently preparing for the launch of its create-and-share music platform in the second half of this year, which will showcase the rich media capabilities of Intel-based PC, mobile and set-top platforms. The investment will be used to accelerate deployment of its product roadmap.

 

PerspecSys enables enterprise adoption of cloud computing by addressing sensitive data Privacy, Residency, and Security (PRS) concerns. The PerspecSys PRS Solution* preserves enterprise management and protection of sensitive data used in public and private cloud applications. This helps to remove the traditional barriers to enterprise cloud adoption such as regulatory compliance requirements, industry standards or internal data management policies that would not normally allow sensitive data to go into the cloud. PerspecSys' global customers include financial services firms, banks, management consulting firms and public sector services. The investment from Intel Capital aligns well with Intel's Cloud 2015 vision and will be used to drive growth and vertical market segment expansion.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Education: Surpassed 9 million teachers trained worldwide through the Intel® Teach Program.
  • Environment: Intel maintained its position as the largest voluntary purchaser of renewable energy credits in the United States, according to the EPA, and completed nine solar electric installations at locations in four U.S. states and Israel. The company has also saved 40 billion gallons of water since 1998.
  • Community: In 2010, close to half of Intel's workforce donated more than 1 million hours of service in schools and nonprofit organizations globally.
  • Supply Chain Responsibility: Intel increased supplier assessment and audit activities and continued to take actions to address the issue of conflict minerals in the supply chain.

 

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 19, 2011 – Released today, Intel Corporation's 2010 Corporate Responsibility Report highlights the company's focus on applying its technology and the talents of its employees to transform education and technology access, and improve economic and environmental sustainability around the world. The report also discusses the actions Intel continues to take to further embed corporate responsibility into its culture and decision-making, from providing funding for innovative employee sustainability projects to linking a portion of employee compensation to environmental goals.

 

"At Intel, we don't separate corporate responsibility from our business - it is part of our global strategy," said Michael Jacobson, director of corporate responsibility at Intel. "Caring for our people, our planet and inspiring the next generation is a corporate strategic objective that will be achieved through the concerted efforts of our employees, whether they work in a factory, design products or interface with customers or suppliers."

 

Highlights from the 2010 report include:

 

Education

  • More than 9 million teachers worldwide have been trained through the Intel® Teach Program, which offers professional development for K-12 teachers of all subjects, helping them integrate technology into their lessons.
  • In conjunction with U.S. President Barack Obama's "Educate to Innovate" campaign, Intel announced a $200 million commitment to advance math and science education.
  • Over the past decade, Intel and the Intel Foundation have invested more than $1 billion to improve education globally, partnering with educators, governments and other companies to develop a range of transformative programs and technology solutions.

 

Environment

Intel maintained its position as the largest voluntary purchaser of renewable energy credits in the United States, according to the EPA, and worked with third parties to complete nine solar electric installations at Intel locations in four U.S. states and Israel, which collectively generate 3.8 million kilowatts of clean power per year.1/p>

 

A design center in Haifa, Israel was Intel's first Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)-certified building and the first in Israel to receive LEED Gold certification. Intel also achieved basic LEED certification for an Intel factory and office building in Kulim, Malaysia. Intel submitted an application to obtain certification for its entire Ocotillo manufacturing campus in Arizona, which was achieved in March 2011.

 

Since 1998, as a result of Intel's conservation efforts, 40 billion gallons of water, or enough for roughly 370,000 U.S. homes for a year, have been saved. Intel also completed a new water footprint analysis in collaboration with a third-party and expanded disclosure on water use in this report as a result.

 

  • In 2010, 62 individuals and teams were nominated for Intel Environmental Excellence Awards recognizing employees who have helped reduce Intel's environmental impact. These employee projects resulted in estimated cost savings of $135 million.

 

As part of the Sustainability in Action Grant program, Intel provided $100,000 in funding for 13 employee projects — including the creation of a proof-of-concept model which found that boiler emissions at a fabrication facility were well-suited to grow algae, which can be used to create clean-burning biofuel.

 

Workplace and Community

  • In 2010, close to half (48 percent) of Intel's workforce donated more than 1 million hours of service and the Intel Foundation provided $7.9 million in matching grants to about 4,900 schools and nonprofits where employees volunteered.
  • One of Intel's six values is "Great Place to Work," which reinforces the importance of positive employee relations as a key component of the company's success. In 2010, the workplace practices in support of this value earned Intel a spot on Fortune's annual "100 Best Companies to Work for" list.
  • Intel continued to invest in a range of diversity initiatives, including support of chartered employee groups such as the Women at Intel Network. Since 2004, Intel has achieved a 24 percent increase in the number of women in technical mid- to senior-level jobs. Furthermore, women make up 30 percent of the current board of directors.

 

Supply Chain Responsibility

  • To address the issue of conflict minerals, in 2010, Intel completed on-site reviews of 25 smelters in eight countries, laying the groundwork for third-party industry audits.
  • Intel improved transparency of its suppler responsibility actions, providing increased detail on the findings of assessments and audits, and publishing its top 75 suppliers list.

 

Intel has provided public reports on its environmental, health and safety performance since 1994 and produced an annual Corporate Responsibility Report since 2001.

Brings Annual Dividend to 84 cents Per Share

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 11, 2011 – Intel Corporation today announced that its board of directors has approved a 16 percent increase in the quarterly cash dividend to 21 cents per share (84 cents per share on an annual basis), beginning with the dividend that will be declared in the third quarter of 2011.

 

Today's announcement is the second dividend increase in the past 6 months. Intel previously raised the dividend 15 percent in November 2010. Intel's dividend payout has steadily increased at a 33 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) since 2003, compared to the Standard & Poor (S&P) 500 growth rate of 6 percent over the same period.

 

"Worldwide demand for computing continues to increase at a very rapid rate, putting Intel on track for revenue growth of over 20 percent this year, delivering another record year for the company," said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. "Intel's current and projected growth is generating strong cash flow, allowing us to further increase our dividend. We are delivering on our commitment to return cash to shareholders with annual dividend growth that's already more than five times the S&P 500."

 

In addition to raising the dividend over 30 percent in the past 6 months, Intel also increased the authorization limit for share repurchases by an additional $10 billion in January, bringing the total outstanding buyback authorization to $14.2 billion. In the first quarter of 2011, Intel used $4 billion of the total buyback authorization to repurchase shares. Since the company's stock buyback program began in 1990 and through the end of the first quarter of 2011, Intel repurchased approximately 3.6 billion shares at a cost of approximately $74 billion.

 

Intel began paying a cash dividend in 1992 and has paid out approximately $22 billion to its shareholders in dividends. Intel cash dividends for 2010 totaled approximately $3.5 billion.

 

Taken together since their inception, Intel's dividends and stock buyback program have returned approximately $96 billion to shareholders.

 

Risk Factors

 

  • The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and expectations for the second, third and fourth quarters, the year and the future are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "should" and their variations identify forward-looking statements. Statements that refer to or are based on projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking statements. Many factors could affect Intel's actual results, and variances from Intel's current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Intel presently considers the following to be the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company's expectations.
  • Dividend declarations and the dividend rate are at the discretion of Intel's board of directors, and plans for future dividends may be revised by the board. Intel's dividend program could be affected by changes in Intel's operating results, its capital spending programs, changes in its cash flows and changes in the tax laws, as well as by the level and timing of acquisition and investment activity.
  • Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors including changes in business and economic conditions, including supply constraints and other disruptions affecting customers; customer acceptance of Intel's and competitors' products; changes in customer order patterns including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at customers. Potential disruptions in the high technology supply chain resulting from the recent disaster in Japan could cause customer demand to be different from Intel's expectations.
  • Intel operates in intensely competitive industries that are characterized by a high percentage of costs that are fixed or difficult to reduce in the short term and product demand that is highly variable and difficult to forecast. Revenue and the gross margin percentage are affected by the timing of Intel product introductions and the demand for and market acceptance of Intel's products; actions taken by Intel's competitors, including product offerings and introductions, marketing programs and pricing pressures and Intel's response to such actions; and Intel's ability to respond quickly to technological developments and to incorporate new features into its products.
  • The company's gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations based on capacity utilization; variations in inventory valuation, including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for sale; changes in revenue levels; product mix and pricing; the timing and execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; start-up costs; excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; product manufacturing quality/yields; and impairments of long-lived assets, including manufacturing, assembly/test and intangible assets.
  • Expenses, particularly certain marketing and compensation expenses, as well as restructuring and asset impairment charges, vary depending on the level of demand for Intel's products and the level of revenue and profits.
  • The company's effective tax rate expectation is based on current tax law and current expected income. The tax rate may be affected by the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in the estimates of credits, benefits and deductions; the resolution of issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment of interest and penalties; and the ability to realize deferred tax assets.
  • Gains or losses from equity securities and interest and other could vary from expectations depending on gains or losses on the sale, exchange, change in the fair value or impairments of debt and equity investments; interest rates; cash balances; and changes in fair value of derivative instruments.
  • The majority of Intel's non-marketable equity investment portfolio balance is concentrated in companies in the flash memory market segment, and declines in this market segment or changes in management's plans with respect to Intel's investments in this market segment could result in significant impairment charges, impacting restructuring charges as well as gains/losses on equity investments and interest and other.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse economic, social, political and physical/infrastructure conditions in countries where Intel, its customers or its suppliers operate, including military conflict and other security risks, natural disasters, infrastructure disruptions, health concerns and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
  • Intel's results could be affected by the timing of closing of acquisitions and divestitures.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse effects associated with product defects and errata (deviations from published specifications), and by litigation or regulatory matters involving intellectual property, stockholder, consumer, antitrust and other issues, such as the litigation and regulatory matters described in Intel's SEC reports. An unfavorable ruling could include monetary damages or an injunction prohibiting us from manufacturing or selling one or more products, precluding particular business practices, impacting Intel's ability to design its products, or requiring other remedies such as compulsory licensing of intellectual property.

 

A detailed discussion of these and other factors that could affect Intel's results is included in Intel's SEC filings, including the report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended April 2, 2011.
