Intel Posts Record Third-Quarter Revenue of $10.2 Billion -- Net Income Up By 12%

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 14, 2008— Intel Corporation today announced record third-quarter revenue of $10.2 billion along with operating income of $3.1 billion, net income of $2 billion and earnings per share (EPS) of 35 cents.

Intel delivered the best third-quarter revenue in its history, said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. We were solidly profitable, with operating income of over $3 billion, reflecting strong across-the-board execution and best-of-class products.

As we look to Q4, it is hard to know what impact the financial crisis will have on end customer demand. We are confident that our product portfolio, strong cash flow, commitment to deploying new technology and market momentum will allow us to outpace peer companies at a time when business levels are difficult to predict.

Operating Income $3.1 billion +44% +37%
Net Income $2 billion +12% +26%
EPS 35 cents +17% +25%
