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 QUARTERQ2 FY12Current GuidanceResults (1)Q2 FY13 EstimatesRevenues$4.94B$5.8B - $6.3B  Year-over-year changeincrease 17% - 27%Non-GAAP Diluted earnings per share (EPS)$1.01$1.10 - $1.18  Year-over-year changeincrease 9% - 17%         Diluted EPS attributable to QSI$0.41$0.00         Diluted EPS attributable to share-based compensation($0.11)($0.12)         Diluted EPS attributable to acquisition-related items($0.03)($0.04)         Diluted EPS attributable to tax items (2)N/A$0.04GAAP Diluted EPS$1.28$0.98 - $1.06  Year-over-year changedecrease 17% - 23%MetricsMSM chip shipments152M 163M - 173M   Year-over-year changeincrease 7% - 14%Total reported device sales (3) approx. $51.7B*  approx. $57.5B - $62.5B*  Year-over-year changeincrease 11% - 21%*Est. sales in December quarter, reported in March quarterFISCAL YEARFY 2012Prior GuidanceCurrent GuidanceResults (1)FY 2013 EstimatesFY 2013 EstimatesRevenues$19.12B $23.0B - $24.0B$23.4B - $24.4B  Year-over-year changeincrease 20% - 26%increase 22% - 28%Non-GAAP Diluted EPS$3.71$4.12 - $4.32$4.25 - $4.45  Year-over-year changeincrease 11% - 16%increase 15% - 20%         Diluted EPS attributable to QSI$0.40($0.04)($0.02)         Diluted EPS attributable to share-based compensation($0.47)($0.53)($0.51)         Diluted EPS attributable to acquisition-related items($0.14)($0.15)($0.15)         Diluted EPS attributable to tax items (2)$0.01N/A$0.04GAAP Diluted EPS$3.51$3.40 - $3.60$3.61 - $3.81  Year-over-year changedecrease 3% - increase 3%increase 3% - 9%MetricsEst. fiscal year* 3G/4G device average selling price range (3)approx. $216 - $222approx. $214 - $226approx. $214 - $226*Shipments in Sept. to June quarters, reported in Dec. to Sept. quartersCALENDAR YEAR Device Estimates (3)Prior GuidanceCalendar 2012 EstimatesCurrent GuidanceCalendar 2012 EstimatesPrior GuidanceCalendar 2013EstimatesCurrent GuidanceCalendar 2013EstimatesEst. 3G/4G device shipmentsMarch quarterapprox. 206M - 211Mapprox. 206M - 211Mnot providednot providedJune quarterapprox. 210M - 214Mapprox. 210M - 214Mnot providednot providedSeptember quarternot providedapprox. 233M - 237Mnot providednot providedDecember quarternot providednot providednot providednot providedEst. calendar year range (approx.)880M - 930M915M - 940M1,000M - 1,070M1,000M - 1,070MEst. calendar year midpoint (approx.)

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe Non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, "Non-GAAP" is not a term defined by GAAP, and as a result, the Company's measure of Non-GAAP results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP results are presented herein.The Company uses Non-GAAP financial information (i) to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's operating results on a consistent and comparable basis; (ii) to measure the performance and efficiency of the Company's ongoing core operating businesses, including the QCT, QTL and QWI 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:  revenues, cost of revenues, R&D expenses, SG&A expenses, other 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.  The Company 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.  The Company presents Non-GAAP financial information to provide greater transparency to investors with respect to its use of such information in financial and operational decision-making.Non-GAAP information used by management excludes QSI, certain share-based compensation, certain acquisition-related items and certain tax items.  QSI 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 expense primarily relates to restricted stock units and stock options.  Certain share-based compensation is excluded because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core business.  Further, the fair values of share-based awards are affected by factors that are variable on each grant date, which may include the Company's stock price, stock market volatility, expected award life, risk-free interest rates and expected dividend payouts in future years.  Acquisition-related items relate to amortization and impairment charges 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 from restructuring the ownership of such acquired assets.  Additionally, starting with acquisitions completed in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company began excluding expenses related to the termination of contract(s) that limit the use of the acquired intellectual property.  These certain acquisition-related items are excluded and are not allocated to the Company's segments because management views such expenses as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core business.  In addition, these charges are impacted by the size and timing of acquisitions, potentially obscuring period to period comparisons of the Company's operating businesses.   Certain tax items that were recorded 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.  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 and to compare its operating performance with other companies in the industry.  About Qualcomm Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq:  QCOM) is a world leader in 3G, 4G and next-generation wireless technologies.  Qualcomm Incorporated includes Qualcomm's licensing business, QTL, and the vast majority of its patent portfolio.
