Appointment of Chief Financial Officer

On January 10, 2022, Intel Corporation (“Intel”) announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) appointed David A. Zinsner as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, effective as of January 17, 2022 (the “Effective Date”). In this role, he will oversee Intel’s global finance organization. He will also serve as Intel’s principal accounting officer.

Mr. Zinsner, 53, will join Intel from Micron Technology, Inc., a manufacturer of memory and storage products, where he most recently served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. From February 2018 to October 2021, he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Micron. Previously, from April 2017 to February 2018, he served as the President and Chief Operating Officer of Affirmed Networks, Inc. From January 2009 to April 2017, he served as Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of Analog Devices, Inc. From July 2005 to January 2009, Mr. Zinsner served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Intersil Corporation.

In connection with his appointment as Chief Financial Officer, Intel entered into an offer letter with Mr. Zinsner (the “Offer Letter”) setting forth the terms of his employment and compensation. Pursuant to the Offer Letter, Mr. Zinsner’s base salary will be $800,000, and he will be eligible for an annual incentive cash bonus with a target amount of $1,320,000 under Intel’s Executive Annual Performance Bonus Plan and a quarterly incentive cash bonus under Intel’s broad-based quarterly bonus program. Mr. Zinsner will be granted annual equity awards in January 2022 with an aggregate target value of approximately $8,250,000, comprised of approximately 50% performance-based restricted stock units (“PSUs”) and 50% time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”).

The Offer Letter provides for certain new hire “make-whole” compensation to be provided to Mr. Zinsner in the form of equity awards and a cash bonus, designed primarily to make him whole for compensation that he forfeited upon his departure from his prior employer. These include PSUs with a target value of approximately $5,000,000, and RSUs with a target value of approximately $12,000,000. In addition, Mr. Zinsner will receive a cash bonus of $2,000,000, payable within 30 days following the Effective Date. In the event he voluntarily terminates his employment or is terminated by Intel for cause within two years of the payment date, he must repay the cash bonus on a prorated basis, as described in the Offer Letter.

Mr. Zinsner’s equity awards will be subject to the terms and conditions of Intel’s 2006 Equity Incentive Plan.

The foregoing description of Mr. Zinsner’s compensation arrangements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Offer Letter, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this report.

Mr. Zinsner will also enter into Intel’s standard form of officers’ indemnification agreement with Intel, pursuant to which Intel agrees to indemnify its officers 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.

In connection with the appointment of Mr. Zinsner as Chief Financial Officer, George Davis will step down as Chief Financial Officer and principal accounting officer as of the Effective Date and will serve as Executive Advisor until he retires from Intel in May 2022.

Departure of General Manager of Client Computing Group

On January 5, 2022, Gregory M. Bryant, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Client Computing Group (“CCG”) of Intel notified Intel of his decision to resign, effective as of January 31, 2022, in order to pursue another career opportunity.

Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel’s Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Sales, Marketing, and Communications Group (“SMG”), has been named to replace Mr. Bryant as General Manager of CCG. While the company searches for a new head of SMG, Ms. Holthaus will remain head of SMG and James Johnson, Intel’s Senior Vice President, CCG, will serve as the interim head of CCG effective immediately.
