  (d) Election of New Directors

On March 21, 2017, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Intel Corporation (“Intel”) elected Omar Ishrak as a member of the Board, effective immediately, and elected Gregory D. Smith as a member of the Board, effective as of March 23, 2017.

The Board has determined that each of Mr. Ishrak and Mr. Smith qualifies as “independent” in accordance with the published listing requirements of NASDAQ. Neither Mr. Ishrak nor Mr. Smith has been appointed to any Board committees at this time.

Mr. Ishrak, 61, is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Medtronic plc, serving in that role since 2011. Prior to joining Medtronic, he spent 16 years in various roles with General Electric Company, most recently as President and Chief Executive Officer of GE Healthcare Systems, a division of GE Healthcare. Mr. Ishrak is a member of the board of trustees of the Asia Society and a member of the board of directors of Minnesota Public Radio. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of London, King’s College.

Mr. Smith, 50, is the Chief Financial Officer, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategy of The Boeing Company, serving in that role since February 2015. Mr. Smith previously served as Boeing’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer since February 2012, and he held various other leadership roles with Boeing since 2008. Prior to that, he served for four years as Vice President of Global Investor Relations at Raytheon Company. Mr. Smith serves on the board of trustees for the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, and on the board of directors of the Economic Club of Chicago, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and the Northwestern Medicine Community Physicians Group.

Mr. Ishrak and Mr. Smith will each receive the standard compensation amounts payable to non-employee directors of the Board. Pursuant to these arrangements, commencing in March 2017, Mr. Ishrak and Mr. Smith will each be paid an annual retainer of $90,000 (in addition to any committee fees), which will be pro-rated for their first year of service. In addition, in May 2017, Mr. Ishrak and Mr. Smith will each be granted non-employee director outperformance restricted stock units and restricted stock units. Each director’s awards will have a cumulative market value on the grant date of approximately $183,340, which is pro-rated from the value of the annual awards granted to non-employee directors, and the awards will vest on the same schedule as the annual awards granted to non-employee directors in February 2017, subject to each director’s respective continued service on the Board.

Mr. Ishrak and Mr. Smith will also each enter into Intel’s standard form of directors’ indemnification agreement with Intel, pursuant to which Intel agrees to indemnify its directors to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and subject to certain conditions to advance expenses in connection with proceedings as described in the indemnification agreement.
