Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders


On April 7, 2021, Xilinx, Inc. (“Xilinx”) held a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) via live webcast to consider and vote on the following proposals: (1) to adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 26, 2020, as it may be amended from time to time, by and among Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD”), Thrones Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of AMD, and Xilinx (such agreement, the “Merger Agreement,” and such proposal, the “Xilinx Merger Proposal”); (2) to approve, on a non-binding advisory basis, the compensation that may be paid or become payable to Xilinx named executive officers that is based on or otherwise relates to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (“Xilinx Compensation Proposal”); and (3) to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies if there are insufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve the Xilinx Merger Proposal or to ensure that any supplement or amendment to the joint proxy statement/prospectus is timely provided to the Xilinx stockholders (“Xilinx Adjournment Proposal”).


The final results for each proposal are set forth below:


  1.  Xilinx Merger Proposal          
    Votes For   Votes Against   Abstentions  
    174,307,622   637,898   52,910   
  2.  Xilinx Compensation Proposal          
    Votes For   Votes Against   Abstentions  
    167,641,203    6,759,770   597,270   
  3.  Xilinx Adjournment Proposal          
    Votes For   Votes Against   Abstentions  
    160,222,573   14,616,833   159,012   

Adjournment of the Special Meeting was not necessary or appropriate because there were sufficient votes at the time of the Special Meeting to approve the Xilinx Merger Proposal and no additional time was required to timely provide any supplement or amendment to the joint proxy statement/prospectus to the Xilinx stockholders.

On April 7, 2021, Xilinx and AMD issued a joint press release announcing the voting results of the Special Meeting and the special meeting of AMD shareholders. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
