amount of the Sponsors' Applicable Share of any Cost Overrun:

     (i)  on or prior to the occasion of each drawdown of a Tranche B Advance,
          and as a condition to the making thereof; and

     (ii) promptly following any notice from the Agent or the Technical Advisor

     (ii) If and to the extent that Cost Overruns exceed DM 225,000,000 (two
          hundred twenty five million Deutsche Marks), the Sponsors' Applicable
          Share thereof shall be 100%.

will provide AMD Saxonia with cash in Same Day Funds to cover the Sponsors'
Applicable Share of any Cost Overrun.

SECTION 4.4 Post Completion Adjustment. Following Completion, if:

     (i)  AMD Holding has made contributions to AMD Saxonia's Equity Capital (or
          other contributions to AMD Saxonia's capital reserves), other than
          contributions of the minimum Equity Capital referred to in Article II;

shall have occurred and be continuing.

SECTION 4.5 Determination of Cost Overruns. As soon as reasonably practicable
after a Cost Overrun has been identified by a Relevant AMD Inc. Individual or by
the Technical Advisor, the AMD Companies shall calculate the amount of any Cost
Overrun and furnish such calculation to the Agent (together with such additional
information as the Agent may reasonably request); provided, however, that if the
                                                  -----------------
Technical Advisor, acting reasonably and in good faith at the request of the
Agent, identifies and calculates a Cost Overrun or disagrees with the AMD
Companies' identification or calculation thereof, the Technical Advisor's
calculation shall, for purposes of this Agreement, be conclusive and binding.
The Agent will promptly advise the AMD Companies and the Banks of any
determination by the Technical Advisor pursuant to the proviso to the preceding
                                                       -------

Marks), then, as soon as reasonably practicable (and, in any case, within 10
Business Days) following receipt of a demand by the Agent pursuant to ss.
                                                                      ---
21.2(xxiii) of the Loan Agreement, an Event of Default shall be deemed to have
-----------
occurred unless AMD Inc. provides the Agent with such evidence as shall be
reasonably satisfactory to the Agent with respect to the ability of AMD Inc. and
AMD Saxonia to fund the entire remaining Cost to Complete, after giving effect
to the sum of (i) the Available Tranche A Amount, plus (ii) the Available
Tranche B Amount.

SECTION 4.7 Form of Contribution. The Sponsors may comply with their respective
obligations under this Article IV by making, either:
                       ---------- 

     (i)  in the case of AMD Holding, a cash increase in the Equity Capital (or
          other contributions to AMD Saxonia's capital reserves) of AMD Saxonia;
          and/or

     (ii) in the case of either Sponsor, further Sponsors' Loans to AMD Saxonia.

                                    ARTICLE V
                               Completion Guaranty

SECTION 5.1 Completion Guaranty. The Sponsors (jointly and severally), hereby
agree to cause AMD Saxonia:

     (i)   to complete each Project Phase as soon as contemplated by the
           Approved Project Schedule (it being understood and agreed that the
           completion date for one or more Project Phases (other than the final
           Project Phase) may be deferred for up to six (6) months in the
           aggregate for all such deferrals on a cumulative basis provided that
           no such deferral may affect the final deadline for Completion);

     (ii)  to achieve Completion as soon as contemplated by the Approved Project
           Schedule and, in any event, on or before 30 December 2001; and

     (iii) to take all such action, including, without limitation, all actions
           before Governmental Authorities, as shall be necessary or appropriate
           to enable AMD Saxonia to complete each Project Phase and to achieve
           Completion as aforesaid.

For the avoidance of doubt, the obligations of the Sponsors contained in this
Article V are in addition to, and not in limitation of, their respective
---------
obligations contained elsewhere in this Agreement and in the other Operative
Documents; provided, however, that the Sponsors shall be relieved of their
           -----------------
respective obligations under this Article V if, but only if:
                                  ---------

     (i)  the Sponsors shall have complied with each of their respective
          obligations under Article II and, insofar as such obligations relate
                            ----------
          to Class A Sponsors' Loans (or additional contributions to Equity
          Capital or AMD Saxonia's capital reserves in lieu thereof), Article
                                                                      -------
          III; and
          ---

     (ii) following a demand for payment by the Agent under the Sponsors'
          Guaranty, the Sponsors shall have paid all amounts payable under the
          Sponsors' Guaranty.

SECTION 5.2 Notice of Scheduled Project Phase, Technical, and Financial
Completion. Upon the occurrence of each of the following, the Agent shall
promptly advise the Sponsors, AMD Saxonia, and the Banks thereof:

     (i)   Scheduled Project Phase Technical Completion for each Project Phase,

     (ii)  Technical Completion;


                                       35

 
     (iii) Financial Completion, and

     (iv)  Completion.

SECTION 5.3 No Double Recovery Under Article V and Sponsors' Guaranty. In the
event that the Sponsors default in the payment and performance of their
obligations under this Article V and, following any such default, the Agent
                       ---------
institutes litigation or other adversary proceedings designed to compel the
Sponsors to perform such obligations or to pay damages for such failure, the
right of recovery against the Sponsors under this Article V is limited mutatis
                                                  ---------            -------
mutandis to the amount set forth in Section 2.1 of the Sponsors' Guaranty and
                                    -----------
any recovery by the Agent from the Sponsors hereunder shall, pro tanto, reduce
                                                             ---------
the amount available to be recovered from the Sponsors under the Sponsors'
Guaranty.

For the avoidance of doubt, the obligations of the Sponsors under this Section
5.1 constitute a primary guarantee obligation (Garantievertrag) and not a surety
guarantee (Burgschaft).


                                   ARTICLE VI
                              Subsidies Undertaking

SECTION 6.1 Subsidies. The Project will be supported by the following subsidies
and grants from the Free State of Saxony (hereinafter, the "Subsidies"):
                                                            ---------

     (i)  a dedicated purpose investment grant in an aggregate amount of DM
          476,687,000 (four hundred seventy six million six hundred eighty seven
          thousand Deutsche Marks) which, together with the investment subsidies
          in an aggregate amount of DM 23,813,000 (twenty three million eight
          hundred thirteen thousand Deutsche Marks), totals an aggregate amount
          of DM 500,500,000 (five hundred million five hundred thousand Deutsche
          Marks); and

     (ii) a dedicated purpose interest subsidy in an amount of DM 300,000,000
          (three hundred million Deutsche Marks)

which, in each case, will be paid to AMD Saxonia by Dresdner Bank AG in Dresden,
in its capacity as house bank.

SECTION 6.2 Payment of Shortfall. The granting of the Subsidies is contingent on
the adherence by the Sponsors and AMD Saxonia to particular conditions,
requirements, and covenants. If, for any reason whatsoever, any AMD Company or
any Affiliate of any AMD Company breaches any such conditions, requirements, or
covenants, and, accordingly, causes the Subsidies not to be paid or, as a result
of any such breach, the Subsidies are required to be repaid (in either such case
the amount thereof being hereinafter called a "Shortfall"), then, without delay
                                               ---------
following its or their receipt of a demand therefor by the Agent, either:


                                       36

 
     (i)  AMD Holding shall contribute Equity Capital (or other contributions to
          AMD Saxonia's capital reserves) to AMD Saxonia, and AMD Inc. shall
          cause AMD Holding to so contribute to AMD Saxonia (and AMD Inc. shall,
          to the extent necessary, contribute sufficient funds, or otherwise
          cause sufficient funds to be made available, to AMD Holding as shall
          be necessary to enable AMD Holding to so contribute to AMD Saxonia);
          and/or

     (ii) one or both Sponsors shall make Sponsors' Loans to AMD Saxonia,

in either case in an aggregate amount (and, if the Subsidies have not yet been
provided, as and when the Subsidies, but for such breach, would have otherwise
been provided) equal to the Shortfall.

For the avoidance of doubt:

     (i)  the obligations of the Sponsors contained in this Article VI are in
                                                            ----------
          addition to, and not in limitation of, their obligations contained
          elsewhere in this Agreement and in the other Operative Documents, and
          shall survive Completion; and

     (ii) the Sponsors shall not be relieved of the foregoing obligations by
          virtue of:

          (a)  any prior Sponsors' Loans made by the Sponsors (or either of
               them);

          (b)  any prior contributions of Equity Capital (or other contributions
               to AMD Saxonia's capital reserves) by AMD Holding; or

          (c)  any payment made by either Sponsor under the Sponsors' Guaranty;

provided, however, that the Sponsors shall have no liability as aforesaid in
-----------------
respect of any Subsidies which fail to be provided at any time after the
foreclosure by the Security Agent upon any security provided by the Security
Documents, unless such failure is attributable to any such breach by AMD Inc. or
any of its Affiliates (other than AMD Saxonia or AMD Holding, if then Affiliates
of AMD Inc.) occurring after such foreclosure.

SECTION 6.3 Bridging of AMD Saxonia's Receipt of the Subsidies.

     (a)  It is understood and agreed that the Sponsors (jointly and severally)
          will, in the case of AMD Holding, contribute Equity Capital (or other
          contributions to AMD Saxonia's capital reserves), or, in the case of
          either Sponsor, make Sponsors' Loans, to AMD Saxonia, in either case
          as and to the extent that


                                       37

 
          AMD Saxonia requires such funds prior to and in anticipation of its
          receipt of the Subsidies. If any such contribution or Sponsors' Loan
          is made for such purpose prior to AMD Saxonia's receipt of the
          Subsidies (or any portion thereof) then, to the extent that AMD
          Saxonia subsequently receives the proceeds of such Subsidies, and
          provided that no Event of Default, Unmatured Event of Default or Event
          of Termination shall have occurred and be continuing, AMD Saxonia
          shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, repay Sponsors'
          Loans to the extent of the aggregate amount of the proceeds of the
          Subsidy so received, but without interest.

     (b)  The Sponsors' obligations to make contributions or loans under Section
                                                                         -------
          6.3 (a) shall terminate from the date of any foreclosure over the
          -------
          shares of AMD Holding or AMD Saxonia under the Security Documents.


                                   ARTICLE VII
                             Pari Passu Undertaking

SECTION 7.1 Pari Passu Undertaking. AMD Holding has certain payment obligations
under, and as set forth in, the AMD Saxonia Wafer Purchase Agreement, including
an obligation under Section 3.12 thereof (which obligates AMD Holding to
                    ------------
compensate AMD Saxonia for certain Uneven Capacity Allocations). AMD Inc.,
pursuant to the AMD Inc. Guaranty, has unconditionally guaranteed, inter alia,
                                                                   ----------
the obligations of AMD Holding under and in connection with the AMD Saxonia
Wafer Purchase Agreement. AMD Holding and AMD Inc. hereby jointly and severally
acknowledge and agree that the Secured Parties have an interest in the proper
performance by AMD Holding and AMD Inc. of their respective obligations under
the AMD Saxonia Wafer Purchase Agreement and the AMD Inc. Guaranty,
respectively, and, therefore, the parties hereto hereby agree that the Security
Agent may compel AMD Holding's and/or AMD Inc.'s performance of its or their
respective obligations thereunder.


                                  ARTICLE VIII
         AMD Inc. Share Pledge Agreement; AMD Holding Security Documents

SECTION 8.1 AMD Inc. Share Pledge Agreement. AMD Inc. has granted a first
priority security interest in the AMD Inc. Collateral pursuant to and on the
terms and conditions set forth in the AMD Inc. Share Pledge Agreement. 
SECTION 8.2 AMD Holding Security Documents. AMD Holding has granted a first 
priority security interest in the AMD Holding Security pursuant to and on the
terms and conditions set forth in the AMD Holding Security Documents.

                                   ARTICLE IX
                               Sponsors' Guaranty

SECTION 9.1 Sponsors' Guaranty. Without intending to derogate from the
provisions of the Sponsors' Guaranty (and, in the event of any inconsistency
with this Section 9.1, the Sponsors' Guaranty shall prevail), the Sponsors
          -----------
(jointly and severally), have agreed to guarantee, on the terms and subject to
the conditions of the Sponsors' Guaranty, the full and prompt payment when due,
whether by acceleration or otherwise, of all Secured Obligations of AMD Saxonia
to the Secured Parties under or in connection with the Financing Documents and
the Security Documents; provided, however, that as provided in the Sponsors'
                        -----------------
Guaranty, the cumulative right of recovery against the Sponsors with respect to
the Sponsors' Guaranty is limited to DM 217,500,000 (two hundred seventeen
million five hundred thousand Deutsche Marks), plus (as and to the extent
provided in the Sponsors' Guaranty) interest on such amount, if not paid when
due, and plus costs and expenses of enforcement. In furtherance of the
foregoing, the Sponsors have undertaken, pursuant to the terms of the Sponsors'
Guaranty, to pay to the Agent, upon first written demand following the
occurrence of an Event of Default and acceleration of the Advances a sum equal
to the lesser of:

     (i)  the aggregate amount of all Secured Obligations; and

     (ii) DM 217,500,000 (two hundred seventeen million five hundred thousand
          Deutsche Marks).

For the avoidance of doubt, the obligations of the Sponsors under the Sponsors'
Guaranty constitute a primary guarantee obligation (Garantievertrag) and not a
surety guarantee (Burgschaft), and are in addition to, and not in limitation of,
the other obligations of the Sponsors hereunder and under the other Operative
Documents.

the terms and subject to the conditions of the AMD Inc. Subordination Agreement.

                            Obligations Unconditional

SECTION 11.1 Absolute and Unconditional Nature of the Sponsors' Obligations. The
obligation of the Sponsors to perform their respective obligations under this
Agreement, and the right of AMD Saxonia or the Agent or the Security Agent, as
applicable, to receive the proceeds of each payment to be made to or for the
account of AMD Saxonia as provided herein and in each of the other Operative
Documents, shall be absolute, irrevocable, and unconditional, it being the
intention of the parties hereto that all obligations of the Sponsors under or in
connection with this Agreement shall be paid and performed in all events in the
manner and at the times herein provided, irrespective of and without prejudice
to, in particular, any rights or remedies that are available to the other
parties hereto and thereto under any agreements or any applicable laws. The
Sponsors shall be entitled to setoff, and to raise rights of retention, in
respect of their respective payment claims hereunder and under the other
Operative Documents only to the extent their respective counterclaims are
undisputed or have been the subject of a final binding arbitral or court
decision.

          (c)  result in, or require (in either case except as contemplated by
               the Operative Documents), the creation or imposition of any
               Encumbrance of any nature upon or with respect to any of the
               properties now owned or hereafter acquired by any of the AMD
               Companies (other than any right of set-off or banker's lien or
               attachment that the Agent, the Security Agent, or any Bank may
               have under the Operative Documents or applicable law), and none
               of the AMD Companies is in default under or in violation of its

               injunction, decree, determination, award, indenture, agreement,
               or instrument, which default or violation, individually or in the
               aggregate, could reasonably be expected to have a Material
               Adverse Effect.

     (iii) Valid and Binding Obligations.

          Each Operative Document which has been executed and delivered by an
          AMD Company constitutes the legal, valid, and binding obligation of
          such AMD Company, enforceable against such AMD Company in accordance
          with its respective terms, subject, however, to the Opinion
          Reservations.

     (iv) Sponsor Security Documents.

          (a)  The provisions of each of the Security Documents which has been
               executed and delivered by a Sponsor are effective to create in
               favor of the Security Agent for the benefit of the Secured
               Parties, a legal, valid, and enforceable first priority
               Encumbrance on all rights, title, and interest of such Sponsor in
               the Security described therein, subject only to Permitted
               Encumbrances; and all necessary filings and recordings have been
               made in the requisite offices in all of the jurisdictions
               necessary or appropriate to perfect or continue perfected with
               such priority such Encumbrance on such Security.

          (b)  Each Security Document which has been executed and delivered by a
               Sponsor is effective to grant to the Security Agent a legal,
               valid, and enforceable security interest on all rights, title,
               and interest of the relevant Sponsor in the Security described
               therein. When each such Security Document is duly recorded or
               filed in the applicable recording or filing office(s), if any,
               and the recording or filing fees and taxes, if any, in respect
               thereof are paid and compliance is otherwise had with the formal
               requirements of applicable law applicable to the recording and
               filing of security documentation generally, such Security is
               subject to a legal, valid, enforceable, and perfected first
               priority Encumbrance.

     (v) Financial Information; No Material Adverse Change.

               such dates:

               (x)  were prepared in accordance with GAAP consistently applied
                    throughout the period covered thereby, except as otherwise
                    expressly noted therein, subject to ordinary, good faith
                    year-end audit adjustments, in the case of quarterly
                    financial statements;

               (y)  are complete and accurate in all material respects and
                    fairly present the consolidated financial condition of AMD
                    Inc. and its Subsidiaries as of the dates thereof and
                    results of operations and cash flows for the periods covered
                    thereby; and

               (z)  except as specifically disclosed in the Disclosure
                    Schedules, show all material indebtedness and other
                    liabilities, direct or contingent, of AMD Inc. and its
                    consolidated Subsidiaries as of the date thereof, including

     (vi) Litigation.

          Except as specifically disclosed in the Disclosure Schedules, there
          are no actions, suits, proceedings, claims, or disputes pending, or to
          the best knowledge of AMD Inc., threatened or contemplated, at law, in
          equity, in arbitration or before any Governmental Authority, against
          any AMD Company or any other Subsidiary of AMD Inc. or any of their
          respective properties which:

          (a)  purport to affect or pertain to this Agreement or any other
               Operative Document, or the entirety of the transactions
               contemplated hereby or thereby; or

          (b)  if determined adversely to such AMD Company or such other
               Subsidiary, would reasonably be expected to have a Material
               Adverse Effect.


                                       43

 
               No injunction, writ, temporary restraining order, or any order of
          any nature has been issued by any court or other Governmental
          Authority purporting to enjoin or restrain the execution, delivery, or
          performance of this Agreement or any other Operative Document, or
          directing that the transactions provided for herein or therein not be
          consummated as herein or therein provided.

     (vii) No Default or Termination.

          No Event of Default or Unmatured Event of Default, and, to the best of
          AMD Inc.'s knowledge, no Event of Termination, exists. None of the AMD
          Companies nor any other Subsidiary of AMD Inc. is in default under or
          with respect to any Contractual Obligation in any respect which,
          individually or together with all such defaults, could reasonably be
          expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (viii) No Burdensome Restrictions.

          None of the AMD Companies nor any other Subsidiary of AMD Inc. is a
          party to or bound by any Contractual Obligation other than the
          Operative Documents, or subject to any restriction in any
          Organizational Document, or any Requirement of Law, which could
          reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

          record and marketable title in fee simple to, or valid leasehold
          interests in (or the equivalent for the relevant jurisdiction), all
          real property necessary or used in the ordinary conduct of their
          respective businesses, except for such defects in title as could not,
          individually or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a
          Material Adverse Effect. The property of each AMD Company and each
          other Material AMD Inc. Subsidiary is subject to no Encumbrances,
          other than Permitted Encumbrances.

          (e)  AMD Holding has no Subsidiaries other than AMD Saxonia, and has
               no equity investments in any other Person; and

          (f)  AMD Saxonia has no Subsidiaries and has no equity investments in
               any other Person.

          properties of each Sponsor and each "Restricted Subsidiary" (under,
          and as defined in the AMD Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement) are insured
          with financially sound and reputable insurance companies not
          Affiliates of AMD Inc., in such amounts, with such deductibles and
          covering such risks as are customarily carried by companies engaged in
          similar businesses and owning similar properties in localities where
          such Sponsor or such "Restricted Subsidiary" (as so defined) operates.

     (xii) Copyrights, Patents, Trademarks and Licenses, Etc.

          Each AMD Company and each other Material AMD Inc. Subsidiary owns or
          is licensed or otherwise has the right to use all of the patents,
          trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights, contractual
          franchises, authorizations, and other rights that are reasonably
          necessary for the operation of its respective businesses, without
          conflict with the rights of any other Person, except for such
          conflicts which would not, individually or in the aggregate,
          reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except as
          specifically disclosed in the Disclosure Schedules, to the best
          knowledge of AMD Inc.:

          (a)  no slogan or other advertising device, product, process, method,
               substance, part, or other material now employed, or now
               contemplated to be employed, by any AMD Company or any other
               Subsi-


                                       45

 
               diary of AMD Inc. infringes upon any rights held by any other 
               Person;

          (b)  no claim or litigation regarding any of the foregoing is pending
               or, to the best knowledge of AMD Inc., threatened; and


          (c)  no patent, invention, device, application, principle, or any
               statute, law, rule, regulation, standard, or code is pending or,
               to the best knowledge of AMD Inc., proposed,

          which, in any case described in (a), (b), or (c) above, could
          reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (xiii) Taxes.

          Each Sponsor and each "Restricted Subsidiary" (under, and as defined
          in, the AMD Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement) have filed all material
          US Federal, German, and other tax returns and reports required to be
          filed, and have paid all material US Federal, German, and other taxes,
          assessments, fees, and other governmental charges levied or imposed
          upon them or their properties, income, or assets otherwise due and
          payable, except those which are being contested in good faith by
          appropriate proceedings and for which adequate reserves have been
          provided in accordance with GAAP. There is no proposed tax assessment
          against either Sponsor or any "Restricted Subsidiary" (as so defined)
          that would, if made, have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (xiv) Governmental Approvals with Respect to the Operative Documents.

          As of the date this representation and warranty is made or reaffirmed,
          as the case may be, all Governmental Approvals (including, without
          limitation, from the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany,
          and the Free State of Saxony) necessary for the due authorization,
          execution, delivery, and performance by each of the AMD Companies of,
          the legality or validity of the obligations of each of the AMD
          Companies under, or the enforceability against each of the AMD
          Companies of, each of the Operative Documents to which it is a party
          and the due and timely payment by each of the AMD Companies of amounts
          owing under each of the Operative Documents have been listed on
          Schedule 20 to the Loan Agreement and, except as otherwise noted
          -----------
          therein, all of such Governmental Approvals have been duly obtained or
          effected, and are in full force and effect, on the Loan Agreement
          Effective Date.


                                       46

 
     (xv) Governmental Approvals with Respect to the Plant and the Design
     Center.

          As at the date this representation and warranty is made or reaffirmed,
          as the case may be, all Governmental Approvals necessary for the
          construction, ownership, use, and operation by AMD Saxonia of the
          Plant and the Design Center or which are required in order that the
          Plant and the Design Center may be operated for their intended
          purposes and Perform in Accordance with the Plans and Specifications,
          have been listed on Schedule 20 to the Loan Agreement, and all of such
                              -----------
          Governmental Approvals (except those listed in Part B of Schedule 20
                                                         ------    -----------
          to the Loan Agreement) have been duly obtained or effected, are
          sufficient for all purposes thereof, and are in full force and effect
          on such date (and, in the case of Government Approvals that have
          expired, each AMD Company has timely applied for renewal thereof and
          such Governmental Approvals have been administratively extended under
          applicable law); and AMD Inc. reasonably believes, after due inquiry,
          that the Governmental Approvals set forth in Schedule 20 to the Loan
                                                       -----------
          Agreement, together with all Governmental Approvals, if any, that may
          be required in connection with the transactions contemplated by the
          Operative Documents subsequent to the date on which this
          representation and warranty is made or reaffirmed, as the case may be,
          will be obtained at such time or times as may be necessary to avoid
          material delay in, or material restrictions on the use or operation
          of, the Plant and Design Center.

     (xvi) Interruption of Business.

          Neither the business nor the properties of an AMD Company are
          presently affected by any fire, explosion, accident, strike, lockout,
          or other dispute, drought, storm, hail, earthquake, embargo, Act of
          God, or of the public enemy, or other casualty (whether or not covered
          by insurance) which impairs, or, if such event or condition were to
          continue for more than thirty (30) additional days would be likely to
          impair, such AMD Company's ability to perform its obligations under
          the Operative Documents.

     (xvii) Prior Activities, etc.

          Prior to the Loan Agreement Effective Date, neither AMD Holding nor
          AMD Saxonia has engaged in any business, conducted any operations or
          activities, nor incurred any obligations or liabilities (contingent or
          otherwise), other than (a) as described in the Disclosure Schedules,
          and (b) its obligations, if any, under the Operative Documents, and
          activities reasonably incidental thereto.


                                       47

 
     (xviii) Status of AMD Holding and AMD Saxonia, etc.

          (a)  AMD Holding is an "Unrestricted Subsidiary" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture and is
               not a "Restricted Subsidiary" under, and for the purposes of, the
               AMD Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement;

          (b)  AMD Saxonia is an "Unrestricted Subsidiary" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture and is
               not a "Restricted Subsidiary" under, and for the purposes of, the
               AMD Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement; and

          (c)  the Indebtedness of AMD Saxonia under and in connection with the
               Loan Agreement constitutes "Non-Recourse Debt" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture.

     (xix) Accuracy of Information.

          As of the date this representation and warranty is made or reaffirmed,
          as the case may be, all factual information then or theretofore
          furnished by or on behalf of any AMD Company to the Agent or any Bank
          or the Technical Advisor for purposes of or in connection with any
          Operative Document or any transaction contemplated thereby (including
          the Information Memorandum, true and complete copies of which were
          furnished to the Agent in connection with the execution and delivery
          of this Agreement) is true and accurate (taken as a whole) in all
          material respects on the date as of which such information is dated or
          certified, and on such date such information (taken as a whole) was
          not incomplete by omitting to state any material fact necessary to
          make such information not misleading. Insofar as any such information
          includes assumptions, estimates, or projections, such assumptions,
          estimates, or projections have been made in good faith, with due care,
          and with a diligent application of engineering, construction, and
          accounting expertise reasonably available within AMD Inc. and its
          Subsidiaries (it being understood that although any projections and
          forecasts furnished by an AMD Company represent such AMD Company's
          best estimates and assumptions as to future performance, which such
          AMD Company believes to be fair and reasonable as of the time made in
          the light of current and reasonably foreseeable business conditions,
          such projections and forecasts as to future events are not to be
          viewed as facts and that actual results during the period or periods
          covered thereby may differ from the projected or forecasted results).
          Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as of the Loan
          Agreement Effective Date, no new information has become available
          which was not provided to the Technical Advisor prior to the Loan
          Agreement Effective Date and which, had it been so


                                       48

 
          provided, could reasonably be expected to have caused the Technical
          Advisor to express an unfavourable opinion with respect to the Project
          in the Technical Advisor's Report.

     (xx) Warranties of AMD Saxonia and AMD Holding.

          Each of the representations and warranties made by AMD Saxonia or AMD
          Holding in any Operative Document to which it is a party (other than
          the representation and warranty of AMD Holding contained in Section
                                                                      -------
          12.2(ix) and the representation and warranty of AMD Saxonia contained
          --------
          in ss. 15.1.10 of the Loan Agreement) is true and accurate in all
             -----------
          material respects on each Sponsors' Warranty Date, except to the
          extent that any such representation or warranty expressly relates
          solely to an earlier date, and except, in the case of any
          representation or warranty made on a Sponsors' Warranty Date described
          in clause (vi) of the definition thereof, as otherwise provided in the
             -----------
          certificate referred to therein.

SECTION 12.2 Representations and Warranties of the Sponsors. The Sponsors,
jointly and severally, hereby represent and warrant to the Agent and the
Security Agent as follows (save in respect of Section 12.2 (ix) which is

               to do business in each other jurisdiction where, because of the

               qualification or licensing is required,

          (c)  has all requisite corporate power and authority to own, operate,

          extent that the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected to
          have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (ii) Corporate Authority; No Conflict.

          The execution, delivery, and performance by each of AMD Holding and
          AMD Saxonia of each Operative Document to which either such AMD
          Company is a party, and the grant by each such AMD Company of a
          security interest in the Security in the manner and for the purpose
          contemplated by the Security Documents to which such AMD Company is a
          party, have been duly authorised by all necessary corporate action

          (a)  violate any provision of any law, rule, regulation, order, writ,
               judgment, injunction, decree, determination, or award presently

               agreement, or any other agreement or instrument, to which such
               AMD Company is a party or by which such AMD Company or its
               properties are bound; or

          (c)  result in, or require (in each case except as contemplated by the
               Operative Documents), the creation or imposition of any
               Encumbrance of any nature upon or with respect to any of the
               properties now owned or hereafter acquired by either of such AMD
               Companies (other than any right of set-off or banker's lien or
               attachment that the Agent, the Security Agent, or any Bank may
               have under the Operative Documents or applicable law), and
               neither of such AMD Companies is in default under or in violation
               of its Organizational Documents, any of the Operative Documents
               to which it is a party, or any such law, rule, regulation, order,
               writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination, award,
               indenture,


                                       50

 
               agreement, or instrument, which default or violation,
               individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to
               have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (iii) Valid and Binding Obligations.

          Each Operative Document (which has been executed and delivered by
          either AMD Holding or AMD Saxonia) constitutes the legal, valid, and
          binding obligation of such AMD Company, enforceable against such AMD
          Company in accordance with its respective terms, subject, however, to

          conduct of its business, except for such defects in title as could

          Disclosure Schedules, to the best knowledge of the Sponsors:

          Act of God, or of the public enemy, or other casualty (whether or not
          covered by insurance) which impairs, or, if such event or condition
          were to continue for more than thirty (30) additional days would be
          likely to impair, such AMD Company's ability to perform its
          obligations under the Operative Documents.

     (xviii) Prior Activities, etc.

          Prior to the Loan Agreement Effective Date, neither AMD Holding nor

          activities reasonably incidental thereto.

     (xix) Status of AMD Holding and AMD Saxonia, etc.

          (a)  AMD Holding is an "Unrestricted Subsidiary" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture and is
               not a "Restricted Subsidiary" under, and for purposes of, the AMD
               Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement;

          (b)  AMD Saxonia is an "Unrestricted Subsidiary" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture and is
               not a "Restricted Subsidiary" under, and for purposes of, the AMD
               Inc. 1996 Bank Credit Agreement; and

          (c)  the Indebtedness of AMD Saxonia under and in connection with the
               Loan Agreement constitutes "Non-Recourse Debt" under, and for
               purposes of, the AMD Inc. Senior Secured Note Indenture.

     (xx) Accuracy of Information.

          As of the date this representation and warranty is made or reaffirmed,
          as the case may be, all factual information then or theretofore
          furnished by or on behalf of AMD Holding or AMD Saxonia to the Agent
          or any Bank or the


                                       56

 
          Technical Advisor for purposes of or in connection with any Operative
          Document or any transaction contemplated thereby (including the
          Information Memorandum, true and complete copies of which were
          furnished to the Agent in connection with the execution and delivery
          of this Agreement) is true and accurate (taken as a whole) in all
          material respects on the date as of which such information is dated or
          certified, and on such date such information (taken as a whole) was
          not incomplete by omitting to state any material fact necessary to
          make such information not misleading. Insofar as any such information
          includes assumptions, estimates, or projections, such assumptions,
          estimates, or projections have been or will be made in good faith,
          with due care, and with a diligent application of engineering,
          construction, and accounting expertise reasonably available within AMD
          Inc. and its Subsidiaries (it being understood that although any
          projections and forecasts furnished by an AMD Company represent such
          AMD Company's best estimates and assumptions as to future performance,
          which such AMD Company believes to be fair and reasonable as of the
          time made in the light of current and reasonably foreseeable business
          conditions, such projections and forecasts as to future events are not
          to be viewed as facts and that actual results during the period or
          periods covered thereby may differ from the projected or forecasted
          results). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, as of the
          Loan Agreement Effective Date, no new information has become available
          which was not provided to the Technical Advisor prior to the Loan
          Agreement Effective Date and which, had it been so provided, could
          reasonably be expected to have caused the Technical Advisor to express
          an unfavourable opinion with respect to the Project in the Technical
          Advisor's Report.

     (xxi) Warranties made by AMD Saxonia.

          Each of the representations and warranties made by AMD Saxonia in any
          Operative Document to which it is a party (other than the

Sponsors' Warranty Date, except to the extent that any such representation and
warranty expressly relates solely to an earlier date, and except, in the case of
the Sponsors' Warranty Date described in clause (vi) of the definition thereof,

obligations under the Loan Agreement. Accordingly, (i) neither AMD Inc. nor its

(whether in damages or otherwise) for breach of any covenant contained in this

Documents, and (ii) AMD Holding shall have no right of contribution against AMD
Inc. arising from any payment made by AMD Holding under this Agreement or the

liability, whether in damages or otherwise, for actions or omissions
constituting fraud or misrepresentation or breach of warranty; and provided,

further that the provisions of this Section 13.6 shall not preclude the Security

Agent from seeking temporary relief (if otherwise available) for any prospective
breach by AMD Inc. of its covenants contained in this Article XIII.

losses, liabilities, damages, and expenses, including, without limitation,
reasonable legal fees and expenses (herein collectively called the "Indemnified
                                                                    -----------
Liabilities"), which may be incurred by or asserted against the Indemnitees or

          that AMD Inc. shall have no liability under this Section 14.2 in
                                                           ------------
          respect of any inaccuracy by AMD Holding of the representation and
          warranty contained in Section 12.2 (viii)); and
                                -------------------

    (iii) any investigation, litigation, or proceeding related to this
          Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby,
          whether or not any such Indemnitee is a party thereto, and, to the
          extent that the foregoing undertaking may be unenforceable for any
          reason, the Sponsors, jointly and severally, hereby agree to make the
          maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the
          Indemnified Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law.

SECTION 14.3 Undertaking to Contribute. AMD Inc. hereby undertakes that in the
event:

     (i)  a liability is imposed on AMD Saxonia and/or AMD Holding as a result
          of the German tax authorities recharacterising interest on the
          Sponsors' Loans as dividends; or

     (ii) a liability is imposed on AMD Saxonia and/or AMD Holding as a result
          of the German tax authorities ruling that AMD Saxonia and/or AMD
          Holding is not sufficiently profitable (the "Liabilities"),
                                                       -----------


                                       72

 
and in either case (x) provided all remedies and/or appeals under the provisions
of the German and U.S.A. (Income and Capital) Tax Treaty, to the extent
applicable, have been exhausted and (y) only to the extent that AMD Saxonia is
not able to repay the Advances in the amounts and at the times scheduled, that
it will contribute Equity Capital (or other contributions to AMD Saxonia's
capital reserves) to AMD Holding (and AMD Inc. shall to the extent necessary and
depending on where the Liability arises, contribute sufficient funds or
otherwise cause sufficient funds to be made available, to AMD Holding as shall
be necessary to enable AMD Holding to so contribute to AMD Saxonia and AMD Inc.
shall cause AMD Holding to do the same) in an amount not exceeding the
Liabilities that, when added to amounts then available to AMD Saxonia, is
sufficient to pay the Primary Secured Obligations.

SECTION 14.4 SAB Related Agreements Indemnity. The Sponsors, jointly and
severally, hereby agree to indemnify, exonerate, and hold the Agent, and each of
the officers, directors, employees of the Agent (herein collectively called the
"SAB Indemnitees") free and harmless from and against any and all actions,
 ---------------
claims, losses, liabilities, damages, and expenses, including, without
limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses (herein collectively called the
"Indemnified SAB Liabilities"), which may be incurred by or asserted against the
 ---------------------------
SAB Indemnitees or any SAB Indemnitee as a result of, or arising out of, or
relating to, or in connection with, the SAB Related Agreements (other than any
such Indemnified SAB Liabilities finally determined by a court of competent
jurisdiction to have resulted from the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of
an SAB Indemnitee), and, to the extent that the foregoing undertaking may be
unenforceable for any reason, the Sponsors, jointly and severally, hereby agree
to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of each of the
Indemnified SAB Liabilities which is permissible under applicable law.

SECTION 14.5 Payments Free and Clear of Taxes, etc. Each of the Sponsors hereby
agrees that:

     (a)  All payments by such Sponsor hereunder shall be made to the Person
          entitled thereto in Same Day Funds, free and clear of and without
          deduction for any present or future income, excise, stamp, or
          franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, withholdings, or other
          charges of any nature whatsoever imposed by any taxing authority on
          such payments, but excluding taxes imposed on or measured by such
          Person's net income or receipts or the net income or receipts of any
          branch thereof (such non-excluded items being called "Taxes"). In the
          event that any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by
          either of the Sponsors hereunder is required in respect of any Taxes
          pursuant to any applicable law, rule, or regulation, then such Sponsor
          will, subject to Section 14.5(d),
                           ---------------

          (i)  pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required
               to be so withheld or deducted;


                                       73

 
          (ii) promptly forward to such Person (with a copy to the Security
               Agent) an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to
               the Security Agent evidencing such payment to such authority; and

         (iii) pay to such Person such additional amount or amounts as is
               necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by such
               Person will equal the full amount such Person would have received
               had no such withholding or deduction been required.

          Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against any Person
          entitled to receive a payment under this Agreement with respect to any
          payment received by such Person hereunder, such Person may pay such
          Taxes and the Sponsors will promptly pay such additional amounts
          (including any penalties, interest, or expenses, but only (in the case
          of penalties or interest) to the extent not resulting from a negligent
          or wilful failure to pay any or all of such Taxes by such Person, as
          the case may be) as is necessary in order that the net amount received
          by such Person after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on
          such additional amount) shall equal the amount such Person would have
          received had no such Taxes been asserted.

     (b)  The additional amount or amounts that either Sponsor shall be required
          to pay pursuant to clause (iii) of Section 14.5(a) shall be reduced,
                             ------------    ---------------
          to the extent permitted by applicable law, by the amount of the
          offsetting tax benefits, if any, as determined by the relevant Person
          in the exercise of its sole discretion, which such Person actually
          receives and utilises as a result of such Sponsor's payment under
          clause (i) of Section 14.5(a) to the relevant authority (it being
          -----------------------------
          expressly understood and agreed that such Person shall be required to
          use commercially reasonable efforts to claim or utilise any such
          benefit which may be available to it unless it believes in good faith
          that to do so would be inconsistent with its internal tax and other
          policies or if, in its good faith judgment, it would be disadvantaged
          in any respect with respect to its tax position or planning).

     (c)  Subject to the relevant Person complying with Section 14.5(d) below,
                                                        ---------------
          if either of the Sponsors fails to pay any Taxes when due to the
          appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the applicable
          recipient hereunder the required receipts or other required
          documentary evidence, such Sponsor shall indemnify such Person for any
          incremental Taxes, interest, or penalties that may become payable by
          such Person as a result of any such failure.

     (d)  Each Person entitled to receive a payment hereunder that is entitled
          to claim an exemption (either on its own account or for the account of
          the relevant Sponsor) in respect of all or a portion of any Taxes
          which are otherwise required to be paid or deducted or withheld
          pursuant to this Section 14.5 in respect of any payments made by a
                           ------------
          Sponsor hereunder shall, within a reasonable time after receiving a
          written request from such Sponsor, provide such


                                       74

 
          Sponsor with such certificates as may be appropriate in order to
          obtain the benefits of such exemption.

     (e)  Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the
          Sponsors hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Sponsors
          contained in this Section 14.5 shall survive the payment in full of
                            ------------
          the principal of and interest on the loans and other financial
          accommodations made to AMD Saxonia under the Loan Agreement.

SECTION 14.6 Judgment. The Sponsors hereby agree that:

     (a)  If, for the purposes of obtaining a judgment in any court, it is
          necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in Deutsche Marks into
          another currency, the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in
          accordance with normal banking procedures the Security Agent could
          purchase Deutsche Marks with such other currency on the Business Day
          preceding that on which final judgment is given.

     (b)  The obligation of each of the Sponsors in respect of any sum due from
          it to the Security Agent, the Agent, the Paying Agent, or any Bank
          hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in a currency other than
          Deutsche Marks be discharged only to the extent that on the Business
          Day following receipt by the Security Agent, the Agent, the Paying
          Agent, or such Bank, as the case may be, of any sum adjudged to be so
          due in such other currency, the Security Agent, the Agent, the Paying
          Agent, or such Bank, as the case may be, may, in accordance with
          normal banking procedures, purchase Deutsche Marks with such other
          currency; in the event that the Deutsche Marks so purchased are less
          than the sum originally due to the Security Agent, the Agent, the
          Paying Agent, or any Bank, in Deutsche Marks, such Sponsor, as a
          separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment, hereby
          indemnifies and holds harmless the Security Agent, the Agent, the
          Paying Agent, and each Bank against such loss, and if the Deutsche
          Marks so purchased exceed the sum originally due to the Security
          Agent, the Agent, or such Bank in Deutsche Marks, the Security Agent,
          the Agent, the Paying Agent, or such Bank, as the case may be, shall
          remit to the relevant Sponsor such excess.

SECTION 14.7 License Agreement. With respect to the License Agreement,

     (a)  AMD Inc. hereby waives, and agrees to cause each of its Subsidiaries
          other than AMD Saxonia to waive, any and all rights, claims and/or
          causes of action such Person now has or in the future may have against
          AMD Saxonia, its successors and assigns, the Agent, the Security
          Agent, the Paying Agent, any Bank, any receiver appointed to operate
          the Plant, or a third party purchaser of the capital stock, or of all
          or substantially all of the assets, of AMD Saxonia (herein
          collectively referred to as the "Beneficiaries" and individually as a
                                           -------------
          "Beneficiary"), based on: (i) its use, in any manner whatsoever, of
           -----------
          any Non-Proprietory Know-how or of Information Residuals (as such
          terms are defined


                                       75

 
          in the License Agreement); (ii) its use, within the scope of the
          license granted in Section 3(a) of the License Agreement, of the
                             ------------
          Developed Intellectual Property (as defined in the License Agreement),
          or (iii) its use, in any manner whatsoever, of Post Research Agreement
          AMD Saxonia Developed Improvements or Post Research Agreement AMD
          Saxonia Developed Intellectual Property (as such terms are defined in
          the License Agreement). The preceding sentence notwithstanding, AMD
          Inc. does not waive any rights, claims or causes of action based on
          the infringement and/or misappropriation of any patents, copyrights,
          mask works, trademarks and trade secrets, whether registered or not,
          which are owned by AMD Inc. or by an Affiliate of AMD Inc. other than
          AMD Saxonia and not licensed to AMD Saxonia under the License
          Agreement; provided, however, that the use of Information Residuals
          shall not be deemed to constitute an infringement and/or
          misappropriation of any intellectual property rights of AMD Inc. or
          any of its Subsidiaries (other than AMD Saxonia).

     (b)  each Sponsor hereby acknowledges and agrees that, following the
          termination of the AMD Saxonia Wafer Purchase Agreement, the operation
          of the Plant by AMD Saxonia, its successors and assigns, or by a
          Beneficiary shall not, absent a separate infringement or other
          unlawful violation, under the License Agreement or otherwise, of a
          proprietary, substantial, and identifiable right of AMD Inc., or any
          of its Subsidiaries other than AMD Saxonia, constitute: (i) a breach
          of the terms of the License Agreement or of any of the Service
          Agreements (as defined in the License Agreement), or (ii) an
          infringement upon any intellectual property right of AMD Inc. or its
          Subsidiaries other than AMD Saxonia; and

     (c)  except where such failure was due to a breach by AMD Saxonia of its
          covenants to cooperate with AMD Inc., if AMD Inc. fails to complete
          the document removal process set forth in Section 9 of the License
          Agreement within the period required therein following the termination
          of the AMD Saxonia Research Agreement, AMD Inc. and its Subsidiaries
          other than AMD Saxonia shall be deemed to have waived any and all
          rights, claims and/or causes of action they have or in the future may
          have against AMD Saxonia, its successors and assigns, or against a
          Beneficiary based on the disclosure or use, for any purpose, by such
          Person of any documentation left in the Plant on the grounds that such
          documentation or the information contained therein is proprietary to
          AMD Inc. or its Affiliates or Subsidiaries other than (in either case)
          AMD Saxonia.

remedy hereunder shall operate

as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right,
power, or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise
of any other right, power, or remedy. The remedies provided for herein are
cumulative and are not exclusive of any remedies that may be available to the
Agent or the Security Agent at law or otherwise. No amendment, modification,
supplement, termination, or waiver of or to any provision of this Agreement, or
consent to any departure by either Sponsor therefrom, shall be effective unless
the same shall be in writing and signed by or on behalf of the Agent and the
Security Agent. Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement, and any consent
to any departure by either Sponsor from the terms of any provision of this
