"We delivered another record performance in fiscal 2007 because our employees and partners continue to provide industry leading innovative wireless products and services," said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chief executive officer of Qualcomm. "We achieved record revenues, net income and operating cash flow and returned a record US$2.3 billion of capital to our stockholders through our cash dividend and stock repurchase programs." "In addition to our strong business and financial performance, our focused execution resulted in many significant achievements in fiscal 2007. More than 530 million wireless subscribers are now benefiting from the widespread and accelerating availability of 3G CDMA mobile broadband networks with advanced wireless devices at competitive prices. We shipped a record 253 million Mobile Station Modem(TM) (MSM(TM)) chips, a 22% year-over-year increase, and for the second quarter in a row we were named the world's top supplier of semiconductors for wireless applications by iSuppli. We continued to expand our chipset portfolio with the addition of the 7000 series platform for high performance wireless devices and a low cost single chip for EV-DO Rev. A mobile broadband." "In close partnership with the world's leading content providers, our MediaFLO(TM) mobile TV service is now commercially available in the United States and in trials around the world. With ground breaking innovations, such as MediaFLO, Snapdragon(TM) and Gobi(TM), and by partnering with new market entrants, such as Google and Skype, Qualcomm is expanding the impact of 3G CDMA beyond traditional products, services and partners." Cash and Marketable Securities Qualcomm's cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled approximately US$11.8 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, compared to US$12.3 billion at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2007 and US$9.9 billion a year ago. As of September 30, 2007, US$1.5 billion remained authorized for repurchases under our stock repurchase program. From October 1, 2007 through November 7, 2007, we repurchased and retired 13 million shares of our common stock for approximately US$525 million. On October 11, 2007, we announced a cash dividend of US$0.14 per share payable on January 4, 2008 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 7, 2007. Estimated Share-Based Compensation Total Qualcomm (GAAP) net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 included estimated share-based compensation, net of tax, of US$78 million, or US$0.05 per diluted share. This compares to US$76 million, or US$0.05 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. (All amounts in US Dollars unless otherwise noted.) Research and Development Estimated Total Qualcomm Pro Share-Based In-Process Qualcomm ($ in millions) Forma Compensation R&D QSI (GAAP) Fourth quarter fiscal 2007 $410 $55 $- $16 $481 As a % of revenue 18% N/M 21% Fourth quarter fiscal 2006 $338 $56 $1 $16 $411 As a % of revenue 17% 21% Year-over-year change ($) 21% (2%) 17% Pro forma R&D expenses increased 21 percent year-over-year, primarily due to additional engineering resources for the development of integrated circuit products, next generation CDMA and OFDMA technologies, the expansion of our intellectual property portfolio and other initiatives to support the acceleration of advanced wireless products and services, including lower cost phones, the integration of wireless with consumer electronics and computing, the convergence of multiband, multimode, multinetwork products and technologies, third party operating systems and services platforms. QSI R&D expenses were related to MediaFLO USA. Selling, General and Administrative Estimated Total Qualcomm Share-Based Qualcomm ($ in millions) Pro Forma Compensation QSI (GAAP) Fourth quarter fiscal 2007 $248 $53 $22 $323 As a % of revenue 11% N/M 14% Fourth quarter fiscal 2006 $237 $62 $22 $321 As a % of revenue 12% 16% Year-over-year change ($) 5% (15%) 1% Pro forma selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses increased 5 percent year-over-year, largely attributable to increases in costs related to litigation and other legal matters, employee related expenses and other professional fees, partially offset by a gain on the sale of a building. QSI SG&A expenses were primarily related to MediaFLO USA. Effective Income Tax Rate Our fiscal 2007 effective income tax rate for total Qualcomm (GAAP) was 9 percent, and our fiscal 2007 pro forma effective tax rate was 22 percent. Our total Qualcomm (GAAP) diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter and fiscal 2007 included a US$0.20 benefit as a result of prior year tax audits completed during the fourth fiscal quarter. This benefit resulted in a negative tax rate for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 for total Qualcomm (GAAP). Fourth quarter fiscal 2007 Qualcomm pro forma results excluded this US$0.20 diluted earnings per share benefit to provide a clearer understanding of our ongoing tax rate and after tax earnings. Qualcomm Strategic Initiatives The QSI segment includes our strategic investments, including our MediaFLO USA subsidiary, and related income and expenses. Total Qualcomm (GAAP) results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 included US$0.02 loss per share for the QSI segment. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 QSI results included US$63 million in operating expenses, primarily related to MediaFLO USA. Business Outlook The following statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. The "Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" at the end of 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. Due to their nature, certain income and expense items, such as realized investment gains or losses, gains and losses on certain derivative instruments or asset impairments, cannot be accurately forecast. Accordingly, we exclude forecasts of such items from our business outlook, and actual results may vary materially from the business outlook if we incur any such income or expense items. In addition, our outlook does not include provisions for the consequences of injunctions or significant possible damages or costs related to litigation matters unless damages have been awarded by a court. We are engaged in multiple disputes with Nokia Corp., including arbitration over Nokia's obligation to pay royalties for the use of certain of our patents. As a result, under generally accepted accounting principles, we are not recording royalty revenue attributable to Nokia's sales after April 9, 2007 until an arbitrator (or court) awards damages or the disputes are otherwise resolved by agreement with Nokia. We have excluded from our fiscal 2008 revenue and earnings guidance our estimate of royalties which we believe Nokia is required to report and pay to us under our existing license agreement in fiscal 2008 of approximately US$0.25-US$0.30 diluted earnings per share. We perform periodic audits of the royalties payable by our licensees. As a result of our audit process, we determined during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 that total CDMA-based handset unit shipments and average selling prices (ASPs) should be adjusted for certain periods. The adjustments related only to handset shipments and ASPs and did not impact the amount or timing of our revenue. Based on this new information, we now estimate shipments of 89 million handsets reported in our fourth quarter fiscal 2007, compared to our previous estimate of 92 million handsets. The estimated ASP for such units remains unchanged from our prior guidance of US$218. A summary of the adjustments on prior periods is included on our Investor Relations website http://investor.qualcomm.com/results.cfm . The following table summarizes total Qualcomm (GAAP) and Qualcomm pro forma guidance for the first fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2008 based on the current business outlook.

As a result, QCT did not record a royalty to QTL in fiscal 2007. The Company also reorganized the Qualcomm Wireless Systems (QWS) division into the QES (formerly QWBS) division within the QWI segment. Revenues and operating results relating to QWS were included in reconciling items through the end of fiscal 2006. Prior period segment information has been adjusted to conform to the new segment presentation. (2) Reconciling items related to revenues consist primarily of other nonreportable segment revenues less intersegment eliminations. Reconciling items related to earnings before taxes consist primarily of certain investment income, research and development expenses and marketing expenses that are not allocated to the segments for management reporting purposes, nonreportable segment results and the elimination of intersegment profit. (3) Certain share-based compensation is included in operating expenses as part of employee-related costs but is not allocated to the Company's segments as such costs are not considered relevant by management in evaluating segment performance. (4) During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, the Company recorded a US$331 million tax benefit, or US$0.20 diluted earnings per share, related to tax expense recorded in prior years resulting from the completion of tax audits during the fourth fiscal quarter. The fiscal 2007 Qualcomm pro forma results excluded this tax benefit attributable to prior years. (5) During the first quarter of fiscal 2007, the federal R&D tax credit that expired on December 31, 2005 was extended by Congress for a period of two years beyond the prior expiration date. The Company recorded a tax benefit of US$33 million, or US$0.02 diluted earnings per share, related to fiscal 2006 in the first quarter of fiscal 2007 due to this retroactive extension. The fiscal 2007 Qualcomm pro forma results excluded this tax benefit attributable to fiscal 2006. (6) At fiscal year-end, the sum of the quarterly tax provisions for each column, including QSI, equals the annual tax provisions for each column computed in accordance with GAAP. In interim quarters, the tax provision for the QSI operating segment is computed by subtracting the tax provision for Qualcomm pro forma, the tax items column and the tax provisions related to estimated share-based compensation and in-process R&D from the tax provision for total Qualcomm (GAAP). N/M - Not Meaningful Sums may not equal totals due to rounding. (i) As adjusted to conform to 2007 segment presentation.

Qualcomm Incorporated (http://www.qualcomm.com) is a leader in developing and delivering innovative digital wireless communications products and services based on CDMA and other advanced technologies. Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., Qualcomm is included in the S&P 500 Index and is a 2007 FORTUNE 500(R) company traded on The Nasdaq Stock Market(R) under the ticker symbol QCOM. Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The Company presents pro forma financial information that is used by management (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 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. Pro forma 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, net investment income, income before income taxes, effective tax rate, net income, diluted earnings 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 pro forma 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 pro forma financial measures applicable to the Company and its business segments. Pro forma information used by management excludes the Qualcomm Strategic Initiatives (QSI) segment, certain estimated share-based compensation, certain tax items related to prior years and acquired in-process R&D. 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 are viewed by management as unrelated to the Company's operational performance. Estimated share-based compensation, other than amounts related to share-based awards granted under the executive bonus program, is excluded because management views the valuation of options and other share-based compensation as theoretical and 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. Moreover, it is generally not an expense that requires or will require cash payment by the Company. Certain tax items related to prior years are excluded in order to provide a clearer understanding of the Company's ongoing tax rate and after tax earnings. Acquired in-process R&D is excluded because such expense is viewed by management as unrelated to the operating activities of the Company's ongoing core 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 shareholder 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. The non-GAAP pro forma 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, "pro forma" is not a term defined by GAAP, and, as a result, the Company's measure of pro forma results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies.
