PART I - ITEM 2
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS RESULTS OF OPERATIONS Sales for the first six months of fiscal 1997 totaled $40.2 million compared with sales of $46.2 million for the same period last year. Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 1997 totaled $20.1 million, compared with $23.7 million for the comparable period last year. New orders received for the first half of fiscal 1997 were $35.8 million compared with $52.5 million for the same period last year. New orders received in the second quarter totaled $20.5 million, compared with $26.2 million for the same period last year. The decrease in sales and orders for the quarter was due to the slower than expected receipt of new orders for ceramic products and millimeter wave digital radio components. Year-to-date sales and orders were impacted by the above as well as a softening in the wireless telecommunications industry, the delayed rollout of the Personal Communication System (PCS) and by the decision to exit certain non-strategic activities. Gross profit for the first half of fiscal 1997 totaled $6.6 million compared with $15.3 million for the comparable period last year. Gross profit for the second quarter was $2.8 million compared with $7.9 million for the same period last year. Lower margins are the result of lower sales volumes, rising costs due to manufacturing capacity added during fiscal 1996, reserves for excess inventory and a loss on a filter order. The inventory write-down of $1.5 million resulted from shifts in demand away from certain ceramic products at Trans-Tech, Inc., the Company's subsidiary. A loss on a filter order of $500 thousand occurred when a customer redesigned the end product, requiring the Company to scrap certain finished parts and materials and to issue credits for returned product that was no longer required by the customer. In anticipation of the demand for wireless communication products increasing over the second half of fiscal 1997, the Company has decided to maintain or increase its current levels of manufacturing capacity for MMICs, discrete semiconductors and ceramic products in its U.S. facilities. In particular, the Company is expanding its GaAs MMIC capacity to handle four inch wafers and is in the process of adding a third shift to the GaAs fab. Research and development expenses increased 27% for the first six months of fiscal 1997 to $5.0 million, or 12% of sales, as compared with $3.9 million or 9% of sales for the same period last year. For the second quarter ended September 29, 1996 research and development increased 16% to $2.5 million, or 12% of sales as compared to $2.1 million or 9% of sales. The increase in research and development reflects the continued investment by the Company in the GaAs MMIC and ceramic product lines. Selling and administrative expenses increased 13% to $9.8 million or 25% of sales for the first half of fiscal 1997, as compared with the same period last year of $8.7 million or 19% of sales. For the second quarter ended September 29, 1996, selling and administrative expenses increased 3% to $4.5 million, or 22% of sales, as compared to $4.3 million or 18% of sales. The year-to-date increase in selling and administrative expenses is primarily the result of recognizing severance costs related to various corporate executives. The increase in selling and administrative expenses for the second quarter reflects an increase in sales and marketing activities directed toward expanded customer service and market penetration. Interest expense for the first six months and quarter ended September 29, 1996 decreased $194 thousand and $102 thousand, respectively, over the comparable periods last year. Interest income for the first six months and quarter ended September 29,1996 increased $246 thousand and $89 thousand, respectively, over the same periods last year. Funds received from the secondary stock offering that was completed during the third quarter of fiscal 1996, were used to reduce debt and increase short-term investments thereby resulting in decreased interest expense and increased interest income. 7
<PAGE> ALPHA INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES The Company reversed the income tax benefit of $604 thousand recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 1997 because the Company no longer anticipates that fiscal 1997 operations will be profitable. For the first half of fiscal 1997, the Company reported a net loss of $8.2 million or $0.83 per share compared with a net income of $2.2 million or $0.27 per share for the comparable period last year. For the second quarter ended, the Company reported a net loss of $4.7 million or $0.48 per share, compared with net income of $1.1 million or $0.13 per share for the comparable period last year. The Company announced on November 4, 1996 that it intends to divest its European ceramics manufacturing operation, Trans Tech Europe, and its digital radio subsystem product line. The Trans Tech Europe manufacturing operation has provided ceramic manufacturing capacity at a higher cost than our U.S. operation, which, coupled with improved efficiencies in Maryland, have made the European operation unnecessary. Similarly, the divestiture of the digital radio subsystem product line will remove the disproportionate risk and cost associated with the manufacture of these highly complex and low-volume, low-margin subsystems, which have led to some past unpredictability in the Company's operating results. The Company expects to take any associated charges related to these divestitures in the third quarter of fiscal 1997. The Company is working to achieve favorable terms for the divestitures, but these charges are not expected to exceed $2.6 million or $0.26 per share for the least favorable outcome. FINANCIAL CONDITION At September 29, 1996, working capital totaled $26.2 million and included $10.2 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments, compared with $32.6 million of working capital at the end of fiscal 1996. Cash decreased $4.2 million during the first half of fiscal 1997 as a result of an $8.2 million loss, further investments in inventories and capital expenditures, as well as, decreasing accounts payable. Capital expenditures were primarily for continued automation of the semiconductor wafer fab operations and the MMIC and discrete semiconductor assembly and test areas, as well as, for the improved manufacturing capabilities of the ceramic manufacturing facilities. The Company remains committed to adding the required capacity needed to service the wireless markets as demand begins to return and therefore is expanding its GaAs Fab to handle four inch wafer capability. During the quarter, the Company funded its capital expenditures by drawing down $4 million against its equipment line of credit. The equipment line of credit was converted to a three year term loan and at September 29, 1996, the total outstanding balance was $4.8 million. With cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $10.2 million and a $7.5 million line of credit available, the Company believes it has adequate funds to support its current operating needs. The Company will continue to evaluate other available financing such as low interest financing for the capital expansion of its ceramic manufacturing business and any other sources that may become available. Safe Harbor Statement - Except for the historical information contained herein, this Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements that are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties. The Company's results could differ materially based on various factors, including without limitation: cancellation or deferral of customer orders, difficulties in the timely development and market acceptance of new products, market developments that vary from the current public expectations concerning the growth of wireless communications (including PCS), difficulty in divesting the above-mentioned business operations (including the possibility that the Company may be unable to structure acceptable transactions), difficulties in manufacturing new or existing products in sufficient quantity or quality, increased competitive pressures, or changes in economic conditions. Further information on factors that could affect the Company's financial results is included in the Company's periodic reports filed with the S.E.C., including the most recent Form 10-K and subsequent Form 10-Qs. 8

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1 LEGAL PROCEEDINGS The Company does not have any material pending legal proceedings other than routine litigation incidental to its business. The Company has been notified by federal and state environmental agencies of its potential liability with respect to the following two sites: the Spectron, Inc. Superfund site in Elkton, Maryland; and the Seaboard Chemical Corporation site in Jamestown, North Carolina. In each case several hundred other companies have also been notified about their potential liability regarding these sites. The Company continues to deny that it has any responsibility with respect to these sites other than as a de minimis party. Management is of the opinion that the outcome of the aforementioned environmental matters will not have a material effect on the Company's operations or financial position.

The unanimous written decision of the two first chosen, without selection and participation of a third arbitrator, or otherwise, the written decision of a majority of three arbitrators chosen and selected as aforesaid, shall be conclusive and binding upon Landlord and Tenant. Landlord and Tenant shall each notify the other of its chosen arbitrator within ten (10) days following the call for arbitration, and unless such two arbitrators shall have reached a unanimous decision within thirty (30) days after their designation, they shall so notify the then President of the Maryland Association and request him to select an impartial third arbitrator, who shall be another office building owner, a real estate counselor or a broker dealing with like types of properties, to determine market rate as herein defined. Such third arbitrator and the first two chosen shall hear the parties and their evidence and render their decision within thirty (30) days following the conclusion of such hearing and notify Landlord and Tenant thereof. Landlord and Tenant shall share equally the expense of the third arbitrator (if any). If the dispute between the parties as to a market rate has not been resolved before the commencement of Tenant's obligation to pay Rent and Additional Rent based upon such market rate, then Tenant shall pay Rent and Addition Rent under the Lease based upon the then current rate until either the agreement of the parties as to the market rate, or the decision of the arbitrators, as the case may be, at which time Tenant shall pay any underpayment of Rent and Additional Rent to Landlord, or Landlord shall refund any overpayment of Fixed Rent and Additional Rent to Tenant. a. If the option to extend the term of this Lease is not timely exercised, the unexercised option to extend shall automatically become null and void. b.
