Bob Swan’s ability to lead the company as we conduct a robust search for

Chairman Andy Bryant.
Intel expects to deliver a record second quarter, with revenues of
approximately $16.9 billion and non-GAAP EPS of approximately $0.99.
With accelerating data-centric revenue, the company is off to an
excellent start in the first half of the year and expects 2018 to be
another record year. Intel will provide full second quarter results and
an updated outlook for the full year on the second quarter earnings call
on July 26.
As Interim CEO, Swan will manage operations in close collaboration with
Intel’s senior leadership team. Swan has been Intel’s CFO since October
2016 and leads the global finance, IT, and corporate strategy
organizations. He previously spent nine years as CFO of eBay Inc.
Earlier, he was CFO of Electronic Data Systems Corp and TRW Inc. He has
also served as CEO of Webvan Group Inc.
Swan added, “Intel’s transformation to a data-centric company is well
under way and our team is producing great products, excellent growth and
outstanding financial results. I look forward to Intel continuing to win
in the marketplace.”
The Board has a robust succession planning process in place and has
begun a search for a permanent CEO, including both internal and external
candidates. The Board will retain a leading executive search firm to
assist in the process.
