On October 10, 2001 Texan court decided that having released Intel Itanium the company violated the copyright of Intergraph. According to April 2002 agreement Intel agreed to pay Intergraph $150 million within 30 days after the court decision effectiveness and another $100 million on Intergraph´s first demand. Intel strives to court decision reconsideration. The provisional analysis shows that payments will be capitalized and amortised in several years and won´t affect Q3 results.
Intel forecasts $6.5-6.9 billion revenues in Q4 2002. R&D expenses (except for unfinished), administrative and management expenses will supposedly make $2.1 billion in Q4 2002. Total R&D expenses of 2002 (except for unfinished) are expected to make about $4.0 billion.
Total production means expenses of 2002 will supposedly make $4.7 billion, that´s lower than forecasted $5.0-5.2 billion. These expenses will mainly reduced due to current project fund savings. Besides, the company is to reduce equipment expenses in Q4 due to some tools reuse.
