Detailed reconciliations between results reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and Non-GAAP results are included at the end of this news release.The following should be noted with regards to the above results and year-over-year comparisons: first quarter fiscal 2012 results included the results of Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., which was acquired on May 24, 2011.  Additionally, on December 27, 2011, after the close of our first fiscal quarter, we completed the sale of substantially all of our 700 MHz spectrum for $1.9 billion.  As a result, we will recognize a gain in discontinued operations of $1.2 billion in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 related to the close of this transaction.First Quarter Key Business MetricsMSM? shipments:  156 million units, up 32 percent y-o-y and 23 percent sequentially. September quarter total reported device sales:  approximately $41.4 billion, up 22 percent y-o-y and 6 percent sequentially.September quarter estimated 3G/4G device shipments:  approximately 191 to 195 million units, at an estimated average selling price of approximately $212 to $218 per unit.    Cash and Marketable SecuritiesOur cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $22.0 billion at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to $20.9 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and $19.1 billion a year ago.  As of December 25, 2011, $948 million remained authorized for repurchases under our stock repurchase program, net of put options outstanding.  On January 10, 2012, we announced a cash dividend of $0.215 per share payable on March 23, 2012 to stockholders of record as of March 2, 2012.Research and Development($ in millions)Non-GAAPShare-BasedCompensationQSIGAAPFirst quarter fiscal 2012$        746$           126$        1$    873As a % of revenues16%19%First quarter fiscal 2011*$        560$             85$        4$    649As a % of revenues17%19%Year-over-year change ($)33%48% N/M    35%*As adjusted for discontinued operations.N/M - Not MeaningfulNon-GAAP R&D expenses increased 33 percent y-o-y primarily due to an increase in investments in the development of integrated circuit products (including connectivity products), next-generation technologies and other initiatives to support the acceleration of advanced wireless products and services.  Selling, General and Administrative($ in millions)Non-GAAPShare-BasedCompensationAcquisitionRelatedItemsQSIGAAPFirst quarter fiscal 2012$        381$           101$          9$      12$    503As a % of revenues8%11%First quarter fiscal 2011*$        343$             70$          -$      (4)$    409As a % of revenues10%12%Year-over-year change ($)11%44% N/M    N/M    23%*As adjusted for discontinued operations.N/M - Not MeaningfulNon-GAAP selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 11 percent y-o-y primarily due to increases in employee-related and marketing costs.  Effective Income Tax RatesOur fiscal 2012 effective income tax rates are estimated to be approximately 18 percent for GAAP and approximately 18 to 19 percent for Non-GAAP.  The first quarter effective income tax rates for GAAP and Non-GAAP were both 19 percent. Qualcomm Strategic InitiativesThe QSI segment makes strategic investments, many of which are in early-stage companies, and holds wireless spectrum.  QSI also includes the discontinued operations of our FLO TV business.  GAAP results for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 included a $0.01 loss per share for the QSI segment.  Business Outlook The following statements are forward looking, and actual results may differ materially.  The "Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in this news release provides a description of certain risks that we face, and our annual and quarterly reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) provide a more complete description of risks.  Our outlook does not include provisions for future asset impairments or for pending legal matters, other than future legal amounts that are probable and estimable.  Further, due to their nature, certain income and expense items, such as realized investment and certain derivative gains or losses, cannot be accurately forecast.  Accordingly, we only include such items in our business outlook to the extent they are reasonably certain; however, actual results may vary materially from the business outlook.The following table summarizes GAAP and Non-GAAP guidance based on the current business outlook.  The Non-GAAP business outlook presented below is consistent with the presentation of Non-GAAP results included elsewhere herein.Qualcomm's Business Outlook SummarySECOND FISCAL QUARTER Q2 FY11Current GuidanceResults (1)Q2 FY12 Estimates (2)Revenues $3.87B$4.6B - $5.0B  Year-over-year changeincrease 19% - 29%Non-GAAP Diluted earnings per share (EPS) $0.86$0.91 - $0.97  Year-over-year changeincrease 6% - 13%         Diluted EPS attributable to QSI ($0.18)$0.43         Diluted EPS attributable to share-based compensation($0.09)($0.11)         Diluted EPS attributable to acquisition-related items $0.00($0.03)         Diluted EPS attributable to tax items  $0.00n/aGAAP Diluted EPS$0.59$1.20 - $1.26  Year-over-year changeincrease 103% - 114%MetricsMSM shipmentsapprox. 118M approx. 146M - 154M  Year-over-year changeincrease 24% - 31%Total reported device sales (3)$40.0B*$47.5B - $51.5B*  Year-over-year changeincrease 19% - 29%*Est. sales in December quarter, reported in March quarterFISCAL YEAR FY 2011  Prior Guidance  Current GuidanceResults   FY 2012 Estimates  FY 2012 Estimates (2)Revenues$14.96B $18.0B - $19.0B$18.7B - $19.7B  Year-over-year changeincrease 20% - 27%increase 25% - 32%Non-GAAP Diluted EPS$3.20$3.42 - $3.62$3.55 - $3.75  Year-over-year changeincrease 7% - 13%increase 11% - 17%        Diluted EPS attributable to QSI($0.23)($0.04)$0.41        Diluted EPS attributable to share-based compensation($0.37)($0.46)($0.47)        Diluted EPS attributable to acquisition-related items($0.12)($0.12)($0.13)        Diluted EPS attributable to tax items $0.04n/an/aGAAP Diluted EPS$2.52$2.80 - $3.00$3.36 - $3.56  Year-over-year changeincrease 11% - 19%increase 33% - 41%MetricsEst. fiscal year* 3G/4G device average selling price range (3)approx $203 - $209approx $197 - $209approx $204 - $216*Shipments in Sept. to June quarters, reported in Dec. to Sept. quartersCALENDAR YEAR Device Estimates (3) Prior GuidanceCalendar 2011EstimatesCurrent Guidance Calendar 2011 EstimatesPrior Guidance Calendar 2012 EstimatesCurrent GuidanceCalendar 2012EstimatesEst. 3G/4G device shipmentsMarch quarter approx. 170M - 174Mapprox. 170M - 174Mnot providednot providedJune quarter approx. 187M - 191Mapprox. 187M - 191Mnot providednot providedSeptember quarter not providedapprox. 191M - 195Mnot providednot providedDecember quarter not providednot providednot providednot providedEst.

(3) Starting with acquisitions completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, Non-GAAP results exclude certain items related to acquisitions.  During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, acquisition related items consisted of amortization of certain intangible assets.(4) During fiscal 2011, we shut down the FLO TV business and network.  The results of FLO TV are presented as discontinued operations, and prior period amounts have been adjusted accordingly.* As adjusted for discontinued operations.N/M ?

(ii) to measure the performance and efficiency of the Company's ongoing core operating businesses, including the Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, Qualcomm Technology Licensing and Qualcomm Wireless & Internet segments; and (iii) to compare the performance and efficiency of these segments against each other and against competitors outside the Company.  Non-GAAP measurements of the following financial data are used by the Company's management:  revenues, R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, total operating expenses, operating income (loss), net investment income (loss), income (loss) before income taxes, effective tax rate, net income (loss), diluted earnings (loss) per share, operating cash flow and free cash flow.  Management is able to assess what it believes is a more meaningful and comparable set of financial performance measures for the Company and its business segments by using Non-GAAP information.  As a result, management compensation decisions and the review of executive compensation by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors focus primarily on Non-GAAP financial measures applicable to the Company and its business segments.Non-GAAP information used by management excludes the QSI segment, certain share-based compensation, certain tax items and certain acquisition-related items.  The QSI segment is excluded because the Company expects to exit its strategic investments at various times, and the effects of fluctuations in the value of such investments and realized gains or losses are viewed by management as unrelated to the Company's operational performance.  Share-based compensation, other than amounts related to share-based awards granted under a bonus program that may result in the issuance of unrestricted shares of the Company's common stock, is excluded because management views such share-based compensation as unrelated to the Company's operational performance.  Further, share-based compensation is affected by factors that are subject to change, including the Company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected option life, risk-free interest rates and expected dividend payouts in future years.  Certain tax items that were recorded in reported earnings in each fiscal year presented, but that were unrelated to the fiscal year in which they were recorded, are excluded in order to provide a clearer understanding of the Company's ongoing Non-GAAP tax rate and after tax earnings.  However, the Company excludes any benefit resulting from the retroactive extensions of the federal R&D tax credit from Non-GAAP results because the Company does not include the potential extension of the credit in its business outlook due to uncertainty as to whether and when the federal R&D tax credit will be retroactively extended.  In addition to its historical practice of excluding acquired in-process research and development expenses from Non-GAAP results, the Company began excluding amortization of certain intangible assets, recognition of the step-up of inventories to fair value and the related tax effects of these items starting with acquisitions completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as well as any tax effects of restructuring the ownership of such acquired assets.  These certain acquisition-related items are excluded and no longer allocated to the Company's segments because management has concluded that such expenses should not be considered when assessing segment performance as they are unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core businesses.  In addition, these charges are significantly impacted by the size and timing of acquisitions, potentially obscuring period to period comparisons of the Company's operating businesses. The Company presents free cash flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, to facilitate an understanding of the amount of cash flow generated that is available to grow its business and to create long-term stockholder value.  The Company believes that this presentation is useful in evaluating its operating performance and financial strength.  In addition, management uses this measure to evaluate the Company's performance, to value the Company and to compare its operating performance with other companies in the industry.  Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements In addition to the historical information contained herein, this news release contains forward-looking statements that are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to statements regarding the Company's business outlook; growth expectations; and estimates and guidance related to financial performance, effective income tax rates, MSM shipments, device shipments, device sales and device average selling prices.  Forward-looking statements are generally identified by words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "guidance" and similar expressions.  Actual results may differ materially from those referred to in the forward-looking statements due to a number of important factors, including but not limited to, risks associated with the commercial deployment of, and demand for, our technologies in communications products and services; the uncertainty of global economic conditions and their potential impacts on demand for our products, services or applications and on the value of our marketable securities; competition; our dependence on a small number of customers and licensees; attacks on our licensing business model, including results of current and future litigation and arbitration proceedings, as well as actions of governmental or quasi-governmental bodies, and the costs we incur in connection therewith, including potentially damaged relationships with customers and operators who may be impacted by the results of these proceedings;
