Sandisk Corp

We are the worldwide leader in flash storage card products. We design, develop and market flash storage devices used for a wide variety of consumer electronics products such as digital cameras, mobile phones, Universal Serial Bus, or USB, drives, gaming devices, MP3 players and other digital consumer devices. Flash storage allows data to be stored in a compact format that retains the data for an extended period of time after the power has been turned off.

Our strategy is to identify and develop current and emerging mass consumer markets for flash storage products and through our vertical integration supply strategy sell in high volumes all major flash storage card formats for our target markets, enabling us to be a one-stop-shop for our retail and original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, customers.

Our revenues are driven by the sale of products and licensing of our intellectual property. We believe the market for flash storage is price elastic. Our management team believes that more applications for flash storage will be created through the continued increase in the number of megabytes a consumer can purchase at a given price point.

We create new markets for flash memory. Together with Matsushita Electric Industries, Ltd., or Matsushita, which owns the Panasonic brand, and a subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation, or Toshiba, we launched the Secure Digital card, or SDtm card, which is currently the most popular form factor of flash storage cards. We followed that effort by working with mobile network operators and handset manufacturers to develop the miniSDtm card and microSDtm card, an even smaller form factor memory card. Our market-driving efforts now include investment in the U3tm platform, with which software developers can transform USB drives from a simple mass storage device to a platform for on-the-go computing. We are also in the early stages of developing the market for pre-loaded content, such as music, and other digital content for end-users in specific fields such as education. We are working with device manufacturers, infrastructure and copyright owners and software developers in developing these emerging markets, which we believe will contribute to the future of flash storage products.

We are founders or co-founders of most major form factors of flash storage cards in the market today. We co-own the Memory Stick PROtm format with Sony Corporation, or Sony, we have worked with Canon, Inc., or Canon, to co-found CompactFlash®, and worked with Matsushita and a subsidiary of Toshiba to co-found the SD card. We co-developed miniSD with NTT DoCoMo, Inc., Toshiba and Matsushita, and we pioneered TransFlashtm in collaboration with Motorola, Inc., or Motorola. We plan to continue to work with leading companies in mobile communications and digital consumer devices to find additional ways for flash storage card products to enable proliferation of those technologies and markets.

We develop and own leading-edge technology and patents for flash memory and data storage cards. Our team has a deep understanding of flash memory. We own or control many patents, know-how and other intellectual property covering the design, manufacture and operation of flash memory and flash memory cards. One of the key technologies that we have patented and successfully commercialized to date is multi-level cell technology, or MLC, which allows a flash memory cell to be programmed to store two or more bits of data in approximately the same area of silicon that is typically required to store one bit of data. This technology is an important factor in our ability to reduce the cost of our flash memory. We have an extensive patent portfolio that has been licensed by three of the four largest semiconductor companies based on revenues.


We are investing with Toshiba in joint ventures, that are high volume, state-of-the-art flash manufacturing facilities in Japan. Our commitment takes the form of capital investments and loans to the ventures, credit enhancements of the ventures’ leases of semiconductor manufacturing equipment, commitments, on a take-or-pay basis, to purchase 50% of the output of the ventures at manufacturing cost plus a mark-up and sharing in the cost of SanDisk-Toshiba joint research and development activities related to flash memory. We supplement our sourcing of flash memory from the Toshiba ventures with purchases of memory on favorable terms from Renesas Technology Corporation, or Renesas, Samsung Electronics Corporation, or Samsung, and Toshiba. Additionally, we design in-house and fabricate at third-party foundries the controllers which interface between the flash memory and digital consumer devices. Our team manages a network of contract manufacturers that assemble and test our flash memory and cards according to our specifications.

We sell our product globally to retail and OEM customers. We intend to continue to expand our retail customer base to additional new geographic regions as well as to new outlets such as supermarkets and drug stores. We also seek to strengthen our current retailer relationships and establish exclusive arrangements where practical. In North America, we sell our products principally through retailers, such as Best Buy Company, Inc., or Best Buy, Circuit City Stores, Inc., Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and Costco Wholesale Corporation. In North America and the rest of the world, we manage a network of distributors who sell to other retailers and dealers. We also are expanding a separate network of distributors and retail locations specifically focused on the mobile phone market. There are now more than 150,000 worldwide retail storefronts where consumers may purchase SanDisk products. We also sell directly and through distributors, to key OEM accounts, including mobile phone manufacturers and digital camera manufacturers who include our products with their products when sold to end users.

Competition

Our industry is very competitive. We face competition from numerous flash memory card manufacturers, as well as from semiconductor manufacturers of NAND flash memory. We also face competition from hard disk drives and from new technologies. See Item 1A, “Risk Factors.”

Our Key Competitive Advantages. We believe our key competitive advantages in NAND flash products include:


• our intellectual property ownership, in particular our patent claims and manufacturing know-how over MLC, provides a cost advantage to us and Toshiba;

• through the ventures with Toshiba, we benefit from Toshiba’s manufacturing and research and development experience and expertise;

• we manufacture and sell a broader range of card formats than any of our competitors, which gives us an advantage in obtaining retail and OEM distribution; and

• our captive NAND flash wafer supply enables us to control our supply chain and provides cost advantages over our competitors, who only have contractual relationships with their suppliers.


Semiconductor Competitors. Our primary semiconductor competitors currently include our historical competitors Renesas, Samsung and Toshiba. New competitors include Hynix Semiconductor, Inc., or Hynix, IM Flash Technologies, LLC, or IM Flash (a new company formed by Micron Technology, Inc., or Micron, and Intel), Infineon Technologies, A.G., or Infineon, Micron, and STMicroelectronics N.V., or STMicro, who began shipping NAND or NAND-competitive memory in 2004. If any of these competitors increase their memory output, it will likely result in a decline in the prevailing prices for packaged NAND semiconductor components. Additionally, manufacturers of NOR flash memory, such as Intel and Spansion LLC, or Spansion, are attempting to use their flash memory for traditional NAND applications, both embedded and in data storage cards.

Card and USB Flash Drive Competitors. We compete with manufacturers and resellers of flash memory cards and USB flash drives. These companies purchase (or have captive supply of) flash memory components and assemble memory cards. These companies include, among others, Buffalo Technology, Dane-Elec Manufacturing, or Dane-Elec, Delkin Devices, Inc., or Delkin, Fuji, Hagiwara Sys-Com Co., Ltd., or Hagiwara, Hama Corporation, Inc., or Hama, I/O Data Device, Inc., or I/O Data, Infineon, Kingmax, Inc., or KingMax, Kingston Technology Company, Inc., or Kingston, Eastman Kodak Company, or Kodak, Lexar, M-Systems, Matsushita, Memorex Products, Inc., or Memorex, Micron, PNY Technologies, Inc., or PNY, PQI Corporation, or PQI Corp., Pretec Electronics Corporation (USA), or Pretec Electronics, Renesas, Samsung, Sharp, SimpleTech, Inc., Sony, Toshiba and Viking Components, Inc., or Viking Components.

Digital Audio Players. Our digital audio players face competition from products offered by other companies, including Apple Computer, Inc., or Apple, Creative Technologies, Ltd., or Creative, iriver America, Inc., or iriver, and Samsung.

Other. There are other technologies that compete with our product offerings. There are many companies that are attempting to develop memory cells that use different designs and materials than the semiconductors in the marketplace today. When these technologies can be manufactured in high volume, they could have a significant cost advantage over NAND memory technologies. One example is NROM technology which was invented and patented by Saifun Semiconductors Ltd. We also face competition from hard disk drives. Small hard disk drives have a lower cost per megabyte today than does NAND flash; however the minimum density is higher making the hard disk drive expensive in applications that may not require as much memory as the hard disk provides. The hard disk drives in the market today also have significant power requirements and are not as rugged as flash memory. The competitive disadvantages of these other technologies may be reduced or eliminated over time.
