Rambus' CEO Hosts Annual Shareholder Meeting (Transcript)

I want to remind you that attendance of this meeting is by invitation only and I trust everyone has registered prior to entering this room. If there is anyone who is not a stockholder of the company, a designated proxy of the stockholder of the company or especially invited by the company to attend the meeting, we ask you to leave the meeting at this point. Thank you.

The Annual Meeting is being held in accordance with the company's bylaws Delaware laws. We will first address the matter described in the company's proxy statements dated March 15, 2012. We will then complete the balloting process. An announcement will be made regarding the voting results and then the official portion of the meeting will be adjourned. After that there will be a presentation regarding the company and an opportunity for stockholders to ask questions of the company's officers and directors.

During the first part of the meeting, until the ballot is closed, questions should be restricted to the procedures for the meeting and the proposal under consideration. I have proof by affidavit that notice of this meeting has been duly given and that the notice of the annual meeting of stockholders, proxy statement and proxies were mailed on or about March 15, 2012 to all stockholders of record at the close of business on March 1, 2012, the record date for the meeting.

We have at this meeting a record of stockholders as of that date. The affidavit together with copies of the notice, proxy statements and proxies will be filed within minutes of the meeting. We have appointed [Richard Chen], Senior Corporate Counsel of Rambus Inc. to act as the inspector of election for this annual meeting.

The inspector of election has signed an oath of office which will be filed within minutes of the meeting. Based on the preliminary review of the proxy cards submitted prior to this meeting, the inspector of election has determined that out of an aggregate of more than110 million shares of the company's common stock issued and outstanding as of the record date, were holders of at least 88 million shares of common stock are present or represented at the meeting which represents approximately 80.13% of all outstanding shares. That constitutes a majority of the votes eligible to be cast by the holders of shares of common stock issued and outstanding. A quorum is therefore present, the meeting is duly constituted and the business of the meeting may proceed forward.
