The following employee communication may be provided to stockholders of Qualcomm Incorporated.

To: Qualcomm.all

From: Steve Mollenkopf

Subject: Broadcom Director Nominations

Today we issued a press release in response to Broadcom’s announcement that they have nominated a slate of candidates to replace Qualcomm’s existing Board of Directors at our 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

I want to take a minute to explain what this all means. Broadcom is attempting to replace Qualcomm’s Board of Directors in what is commonly known as a proxy contest. This is part of their attempt to acquire Qualcomm. As you know, last month our Board unanimously rejected Broadcom’s proposal to acquire Qualcomm, concluding that the proposal dramatically undervalued the company and would come with significant regulatory uncertainty.

Over the course of the next few months, in the lead-up to the 2018 annual meeting next spring, both Qualcomm and Broadcom will be communicating directly with our stockholders, each side soliciting votes for their respective nominees. Given the vast majority of our employees are also stockholders, you may begin to receive some of this communication, which will certainly include our perspective that we have a world-class, highly qualified Board of Directors that remains committed to acting in the best interests of all Qualcomm stakeholders.

Given the public nature of this campaign, you will likely be seeing a lot of public communications and media attention on Qualcomm. As a reminder, if you receive questions from the media, customers or vendors, please direct those inquiries to our Corporate Communications department (Clare Conley,

Let’s continue to remain focused on our priorities and roadmap. We will keep you informed of any new developments.
