Target Value
Dr. Lisa T. Su, Chief Executive Officer and President
The Target Value of each named executive officer’s equity awards will be converted into a mix of performance-based restricted stock units (“PRSUs”), time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and stock options. The target number of PRSUs will be determined by dividing 50% of the Target Value by the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the 180 days preceding the grant date (the “Conversion Price”), the number of stock options will be determined by converting 25% of the Target Value using the Conversion Price and a binomial factor determined in accordance with the Company’s equity valuation practices, and the number of RSUs will be determined by dividing 25% of Target Value by the Conversion Price. The equity awards will be granted under the Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended and restated. The PRSUs will be granted on August 15, 2015. The stock options will be granted to Messrs. Kumar, Norrod and Papermaster on August 15, 2015, and to Dr. Su on December 26, 2015. The RSUs will be granted on December 26, 2015.
PRSUs. The number of PRSUs that may be earned is based on three-year compounded annual growth rate milestones related to the Company’s closing stock price that may be attained within the three-year performance period that begins August 15, 2015 and ends August 15, 2018 (the “Performance Period”), with the potential payout levels of PRSUs at 50%, 100%, 200% and 250% of the target number of PRSUs granted.
Any PRSUs earned pursuant to the attainment of a performance level shall vest 50% upon the compensation committee certification of the attainment of the performance level (provided, however, that no PRSUs may be earned or vest prior to August 15, 2016) and the remaining 50% shall vest at the end of the Performance Period, subject to the recipient’s continuous employment or service through each such vesting date.
Stock Options. The stock options will have an exercise price equal to 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the grant date, and will vest 33 1/3% on the first anniversary of the grant date, and 8.33% per quarter over the next eight following quarters.
RSUs. The RSUs will vest 1/3 on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the grant date.

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.
