On December 12, 2013 , the Board of Directors of QUALCOMM Incorporated (the Company) appointed Steven M. Mollenkopf to the position of Chief Executive Officer-elect. Mr. Mollenkopf will continue to serve as President of the Company (but not Chief Operating Officer), and will commence his service as Chief Executive Officer following the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on March 4, 2014 . Dr. Paul E. Jacobs , the Company's Chief Executive Officer, will step down from that position effective March 4, 2014 . Dr. Jacobs will remain an employee of the Company, and will continue to serve as the Company's Chairman of the Board of Directors, as Executive Chairman. In this role, Dr. Jacobs will help guide the development of new technology and the Company's long term opportunities. Mr. Mollenkopf has worked for the Company for nearly 20 years in various leadership positions. Additional information regarding Mr. Mollenkopf's previous business experience is contained in Part I, Item 1 of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 29, 2013 under the heading "Executive Officers" and is incorporated herein by reference. Effective December 12, 2013 , Mr. Mollenkopf will receive a base salary of $1.1 million per year, and will be eligible to receive a bonus under the Company's 2014 Annual Cash Incentive Plan of 200% of his base salary at target.

The promotion grants consist of (i) special retention RSUs with a grant date fair value of $20 million , which will vest in three equal installments on the third, fourth and fifth anniversaries of the date of grant, and (ii) additional RSUs with a grant date fair value of $30 million which will vest annually in five equal installments with the first installment vesting on December 12, 2014 .
