(d)    Election of New Director.

On July 14, 2021, the Board of Directors (“Board”) of Intel Corporation (“Intel”) elected Dr. Andrea J. Goldsmith to the Board, effective September 1, 2021. The Board determined that Dr. Goldsmith qualifies as “independent” in accordance with the published listing requirements of Nasdaq. Dr. Goldsmith has not been appointed to any Board committees at this time.

Dr. Goldsmith, 57, served for over two decades on the faculty of Stanford University before she was named Dean of Engineering and Applied Science and the Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Princeton University in 2020. From 2012 to 2020, Dr. Goldsmith served as the Stephen Harris Professor of Engineering and a Professor of Engineering at Stanford University. From 1999 to 2012, she served as an Assistant, Associate, then full Professor in Stanford University’s Department of Electrical Engineering. From 2010 to 2014, Dr. Goldsmith co-founded and served as the Chief Technology Officer at Plume WiFi (formerly Accelera, Inc.), a provider of software-defined wireless networking technology. From 2005 to 2009, Dr. Goldsmith co-founded and served as Chief Technology Officer for Quantenna Communications (formerly mySource Communications, Inc.), a producer of silicon chipsets designed for high-speed, wireless networking. Dr. Goldsmith has served as a member of the board of directors of Medtronic plc since 2019 and as a board member of Crown Castle International Corp. since 2018. She received B.S., M.S. and Ph.D degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1986, 1991, and 1994, respectively. Dr. Goldsmith is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and she is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (“IEEE”). Dr. Goldsmith is the founding Chair of the IEEE Board of Directors Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Ethics.

Dr. Goldsmith will receive the standard compensation amounts payable to non-employee directors of the Board. Pursuant to these arrangements, commencing in September 2021, Dr. Goldsmith will be paid an annual cash retainer of $90,000 (in addition to any committee fees), which will be pro-rated for her first year of service. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2021, Dr. Goldsmith will be granted non-employee director time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) with a value on the grant date of approximately $146,667, which is pro-rated from the value of the annual award granted to non-employee directors. The award will vest on the earlier of May 13, 2022 and the date of Intel’s 2022 Annual Stockholders’ Meeting, the same schedule as the annual award granted to the non-employee directors in May 2021, subject to Dr. Goldsmith’s continued service on the Board.

Dr. Goldsmith will also enter into Intel’s standard form of directors’ indemnification agreement with Intel, pursuant to which Intel agrees to indemnify its directors 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.
