Will my Clock reset?

Hi,

my friend has a different case. Need some clarification.

Initial stay in US: 03/28/2009 to 08/05/2012 on L1B

H1B applied on Apr 2012 H1B, which was before returning to India and got approved on 08/09/2012

US entry again: 09/19/2013 which is after 365 days. As my friend already stayed in India for more than an year, will the clock gets reset in this case? Please clarify. Thanks!

I don’t think so. The H-1 was applied and approved before staying 1 year outside US. Clock is reset if H-1 is applied after the person has stayed outside US for more than 1 year.
