(AMD) including the features, functionality, availability, timing, deployment, benefits and expectations of AMD future products including the RadeonTM VII graphics card, which are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are commonly identified by words such as "would," "intends," "believes," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "seeks," "intends," "plans," "pro forma," "estimates," "anticipates," or the negative of these words and phrases, other variations of these words and phrases or comparable terminology. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this document are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Such statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond AMD's control, that could cause actual results and other future events to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and statements. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively; AMD has a wafer supply agreement with GF with obligations to purchase all of its microprocessor and APU product requirements, and a certain portion of its GPU product requirements, from GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, its business could be adversely impacted; AMD relies on third parties to manufacture its products, and if they are unable to do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, AMD’s business could be materially adversely affected; failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for AMD’s products could negatively impact its financial results; the success of AMD’s business is dependent upon its ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions; if AMD cannot generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, it may face a cash shortfall and be unable to make all of its planned investments in research and development or other strategic investments; the loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on AMD; AMD’s receipt of revenue from its semi-custom SoC products is dependent upon its technology being designed into third-party products and the success of those products; AMD products may be subject to security vulnerabilities that could have a material adverse effect on AMD; data breaches and cyber-attacks could compromise AMD’s intellectual property or other sensitive information, be costly to remediate and cause significant damage to its business and reputation; AMD’s operating results are subject to quarterly and seasonal sales patterns; global economic uncertainty may adversely impact AMD’s business and operating results; AMD may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital requirements; AMD has a large amount of indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial position and prevent it from implementing its strategy or fulfilling its contractual obligations; the agreements governing AMD’s notes and the Secured Revolving Line of Credit impose restrictions on AMD that may adversely affect its ability to operate its business; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly competitive; AMD's issuance to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of warrants to purchase 75 million shares of its common stock, if and when exercised, will dilute the ownership interests of its existing stockholders, and the conversion of the 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 may dilute the ownership interest of its existing stockholders, or may otherwise depress the price of its common stock; uncertainties involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products could materially adversely affect it; the demand for AMD’s products depends in part on the market conditions in the industries into which they are sold. Fluctuations in demand for AMD’s products or a market decline in any of these industries could have a material adverse effect on its results of operations; AMD’s ability to design and introduce new products in a timely manner is dependent upon third-party intellectual property; AMD depends on third-party companies for the design, manufacture and supply of motherboards, software and other computer platform components to support its business; if AMD loses Microsoft Corporation’s support for its products or other software vendors do not design and develop software to run on AMD’s products, its ability to sell its products could be materially adversely affected; and AMD’s reliance on third-party distributors and AIB partners subjects it to certain risks.  Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2018.©2019 Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.  All rights reserved.

Forward-looking statements are commonly identified by words such as "would," "intends," "believes," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "seeks," "intends," "plans," "pro forma," "estimates," "anticipates," or the negative of these words and phrases, other variations of these words and phrases or comparable terminology. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this document are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Such statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond AMD's control, that could cause actual results and other future events to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and statements. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively; AMD has a wafer supply agreement with GF with obligations to purchase all of its microprocessor and APU product requirements, and a certain portion of its GPU product requirements, from GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (GF) with limited exceptions. If GF is not able to satisfy AMD’s manufacturing requirements, its business could be adversely impacted; AMD relies on third parties to manufacture its products, and if they are unable to do so on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive technologies, AMD’s business could be materially adversely affected; failure to achieve expected manufacturing yields for AMD’s products could negatively impact its financial results; the success of AMD’s business is dependent upon its ability to introduce products on a timely basis with features and performance levels that provide value to its customers while supporting and coinciding with significant industry transitions; if AMD cannot generate sufficient revenue and operating cash flow or obtain external financing, it may face a cash shortfall and be unable to make all of its planned investments in research and development or other strategic investments; the loss of a significant customer may have a material adverse effect on AMD; AMD’s receipt of revenue from its semi-custom SoC products is dependent upon its technology being designed into third-party products and the success of those products; AMD products may be subject to security vulnerabilities that could have a material adverse effect on AMD; data breaches and cyber-attacks could compromise AMD’s intellectual property or other sensitive information, be costly to remediate and cause significant damage to its business and reputation; AMD’s operating results are subject to quarterly and seasonal sales patterns; global economic uncertainty may adversely impact AMD’s business and operating results; AMD may not be able to generate sufficient cash to service its debt obligations or meet its working capital requirements; AMD has a large amount of indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial position and prevent it from implementing its strategy or fulfilling its contractual obligations; the agreements governing AMD’s notes and the Secured Revolving Line of Credit impose restrictions on AMD that may adversely affect its ability to operate its business; the markets in which AMD’s products are sold are highly competitive; AMD's issuance to West Coast Hitech L.P. (WCH) of warrants to purchase 75 million shares of its common stock, if and when exercised, will dilute the ownership interests of its existing stockholders, and the conversion of the 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2026 may dilute the ownership interest of its existing stockholders, or may otherwise depress the price of its common stock; uncertainties involving the ordering and shipment of AMD’s products could materially adversely affect it; the demand for AMD’s products depends in part on the market conditions in the industries into which they are sold. Fluctuations in demand for AMD’s products or a market decline in any of these industries could have a material adverse effect on its results of operations; AMD’s ability to design and introduce new products in a timely manner is dependent upon third-party intellectual property; AMD depends on third-party companies for the design, manufacture and supply of motherboards, software and other computer platform components to support its business; if AMD loses Microsoft Corporation’s support for its products or other software vendors do not design and develop software to run on AMD’s products, its ability to sell its products could be materially adversely affected; and AMD’s reliance on third-party distributors and AIB partners subjects it to certain risks.  Investors are urged to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in AMD's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to AMD's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2018.About AMDFor more than 45 years AMD has driven innovation in high-performance computing, graphics and visualization technologies ― the building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms and the datacenter.

SHARP, A REVOLUTION IN AIR TREATMENT 2018-11-29T02:24:41Z sharp-a-revolution-in-air-treatment Click here for images We all know that cleaning our hands and surfaces helps to protect against the spread of germs and other contaminants, but what about cleaning the air we breathe? Indoor air plays a vital role to our general wellbeing but exposes us to elements that can make us ill or irritate us- elements such as dust, bacteria, viruses, pollen and mould. Introducing Sharp’s latest Plasmacluster air purifier, the KCF30JW -featuring Sharp’s revolutionary technology that is designed to effectively clean the air around us by combining a unique Plasmacluster generator with a technically advanced airflow system. This generator ensures ultimate cleanliness throughout the room! Plasmacluster technology works by creating positive and negative ions which attach themselves to the surfaces of bacteria and viruses, bonding together to form highly oxidising radicals which instantly draw out the hydrogen present in airborne proteins. This process breaks down the surface membrane of the protein, rendering it inactive. Finally, the hydrogen and OH radicals combine to form water which return to the atmosphere creating a natural "feel good" environment, like that of a rainforest. Plasmacluster ions also work to reduce static elasticity, the result, dust and other contaminants do not cling to fabrics or furniture, so they can also be effectively collected and removed from the advanced filtration systems. This system combines a series of filters, specifically designed for the effective removal of dust, pollen, bacteria and odours, and can be the ideal solution for allergy sufferers.  At the first stage, the micromesh pre-filter traps larger amounts of particles. The active carbon filter traps and eliminates odours that can build up in the atmosphere such as from pets, cooking and cigarettes. The antimicrobial HEPA filter then captures tiny dust particles at a level of 0.3 microns, resulting in almost perfect dust removal, and finally there is an additional antibacterial filter. Plasmacluster technology has been proven and tested by 30 institutes and organisations around the world. The newest feature on the KCF30JW is the Humidifier- monitoring levels of humidity, dust and temperature with a sensor function – great for use in a room size of up to 21m². Combined with an ergonomic and sophisticated design, the new KCF30JW will automatically provide your home with the recommended humidity level between 40 and 60%.  Sharp’s KCF30JW Plasmacluster Air Purifier is revolutionary for everyday families who want to protect themselves from viruses and sickness, who suffer from allergies, and households that are affected by mould and dust. The KCF30JW will be available at your local Bing Lee store early December at $449 R.R.P.  For more information on the Sharp KCF30JW click here.

Brother’s Corporate Solutions a Win for Europcar and Reseller Alike 2018-11-22T06:02:38Z brother-s-corporate-solutions-a-win-for-europcar-and-reseller-alike-1 Sydney, Australia – 22nd November 2018 - In delivering a customised support arrangement, Brother International Australia has epitomised their determination to facilitate customer wins for both distributors and resellers in the SMB and Corporate sectors. During a recent project, Brother worked closely with car rental vendor Europcar, to optimise the integration of their Document Scanners with a POS Solution for processing customer identification, which is now deployed at over 150 Europcar locations throughout ANZ. Through scalable distribution and ongoing support, Brother has played an important role in ensuring seamless integration and functionality of the Europcar POS solution that is proving an invaluable tool, enhancing productivity among staff, en masse.The leading car rental company required a solution to streamline repetitive processes, which would in turn allow employees to focus on providing greater customer service. The main aim was to improve document management, which could be achieved by storing digital copies of printed customer rental records. To enact this in full, Brother executives Chuck Leszyk, Steve Bennett, and Luke Howard worked closely to devise a strategy that was suitable not only for initial deployment, but one that was also scalable to implement across the wider Europcar ANZ network.In partnership with the distributor, Brother drew upon its technical expertise to test and validate their ADS-1600W scanner’s functionality in the context of Europcar’s ideal POS workflow, building a case which led to the successful acquisition of the Europcar bid for 160 units between two of their resellers. Brother executives continued to work with Europcar to assist in assessing the potential benefits of moving to the ADS-2800W scanner upon its development.In partnership with Europcar Head Office Help Desk Team, Brother performed spot checks at Europcar’s Melbourne metro locations to survey employee workflows and interactions with the scanners, with the purpose of exploring further refinements in the process. In response to such observations, Brother is submitting a brief to the Help Desk Team, to provide recommendations that may help to further enhance operational efficiencies around the scanning process for the business.Brother continues to work with Europcar on the best way to maintain their fleet for the future, focusing on a viable plan for replacing aging units. While proving unwarranted due to the effective implementation and maintenance of the project by all parties, Brother has ensured their Custom UI Solution remains a scalable option across the ADS-2800W fleet should Europcar’s needs change. The extended 3 Year Hot Swap Support that was included in the bid for Europcar continues to provide a more comprehensive cover as well as easier and more-timely turnaround for any warranty repairs.This corporate solution has streamlined the way that Europcar records and manages their print and digital transactions, increasing the effectiveness of employee workflows and the efficiency of the organisation’s overall administrative process. However, a significant portion of the two million businesses in Australia are still experiencing the challenge of a complete transition into the digital economy. By investing into and developing its Corporate Solutions programs, Brother aims to add value to everyday Australian businesses by providing them with expert solutions to seamlessly transition towards a digital system.Website: www.brother.com.au  Phone: 1300 885 989Email: corporatesales@brother.com.auWebsite: http://corpsolutions.brother.com.au/About Brother International (Aust) Pty Ltd In operation for more than a century, Brother is a global manufacturer of laser printers, laser and inkjet Multi-Function Centres, label printers, scanners and mobile products and is recognised for its range of technology-driven machinery used within businesses worldwide. With corporate printing solutions at the forefront of its services, Brother boasts customer satisfaction across small, medium, and large businesses.
