Last Updated: October 20, 2008

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct 20, 2008 -- Spansion (Kuala Lumpur) Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spansion Inc. (Nasdaq: SPSN), the world's largest pure-play provider of Flash memory solutions, today announced that it has been honored with the 2007 Silver Excellence Award from the Malaysian National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (NCOSH). Spansion's Kuala Lumpur (KL) Division has been recognized for excellence in OSH practices in the Large Manufacturing Industry for Electronics category. Spansion KL also won the bronze award in the same category in 2006.

"We are delighted to be acknowledged for our solid OSH Management System," said Ajit Manocha, executive vice president of Worldwide Operations at Spansion. "We are committed to continuously improving our programs to benefit our employees, contractors and visitors, and making OSH an integral part of our work culture. This honor reflects our endless drive for world-class safety, commendable health and environmental performance, and exemplary impact through good corporate citizenship."

The competition is audited by officials from the Malaysian Ministry of Human Resources, Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), and judged by the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health, Malaysia. The stringent criteria for determining the levels of excellence in OSH include an excellent OSH Management System with an effective OSH committee, an Emergency Action Plan and an immaculate accident statistic record. Spansion KL won the judges over with a 30-minute presentation highlighting its OSH Management System strengths and practices, emphasizing that the System is an important part of Spansion's business model, and that accidents support a System's breakdown.

Over 200 organizations with reputable OSH management systems were nominated. The awards were presented in July during a ceremony by the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.
