<PAGE> 2 [ALPHA LOGO] ALPHA ALPHA INDUSTRIES, INC. TO THE STOCKHOLDERS OF ALPHA INDUSTRIES, INC.: The Board of Directors of Alpha Industries, Inc. ("Alpha") has called a Special Meeting of Stockholders (the "Special Meeting") as described in the enclosed Notice of Special Meeting of Stockholders and Proxy Statement. At the Special Meeting, the stockholders will be asked to approve an amendment to Alpha's Restated Certificate of Incorporation ("Certificate of Incorporation") to increase the number of shares of Common Stock that Alpha is authorized to issue, from 30,000,000 to 100,000,000 shares (the "Amendment"). On January 27, 2000, Alpha's Board of Directors approved a 2-for-1 stock split in the form of a dividend, pursuant to which each stockholder of record on March 29, 2000, would be entitled to receive one additional share of Common Stock for each share of Common Stock held on the record date of the stock split. Currently, however, Alpha lacks a sufficient number of authorized shares to effect the 2-for-1 stock split. In order to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock, Alpha must amend its Certificate of Incorporation, an action which requires stockholder approval. If the Amendment is not approved by the stockholders, Alpha will be unable to effectuate the stock split. If the stockholders approve the Amendment at the Special Meeting, the authorized number of shares will increase from 30,000,000 to 100,000,000 shares. As a result of the stock split, the number of shares of Alpha Common Stock outstanding will increase from approximately 19,800,000 shares to approximately 39,600,000 shares. In addition, the number of shares reserved for issuance under Alpha's employee stock plans and for issuance upon exercise of outstanding options will double to approximately 5,535,000. Further, there will be an additional 54,865,000 authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock. As described in the Proxy Statement, there are many important corporate activities that may require additional authorized shares, such as raising equity capital, adopting additional employee stock plans or reserving additional shares for issuance under Alpha's existing employee stock plans, and making acquisitions through the use of stock. The Board of Directors believes that, notwithstanding the stock split, approval of the Amendment is very important to ensure that Alpha will have a sufficient number of shares available should it decide to use its shares for one or more of these activities in the future. Other than as permitted or required under Alpha's existing employee stock plans and outstanding options, the Board of Directors has no immediate plans, understandings, agreements or commitments to issue additional shares of Common Stock for any purposes. Assuming that the Amendment is approved by the stockholders, stockholders of record on March 29, 2000 will be entitled to one additional share of Common Stock for each share of Alpha Common Stock held on that date. The payment date will be April 19, 2000. Although you are entitled to attend the Special Meeting and to vote in person, we encourage you to complete, sign and date the enclosed Proxy as promptly as possible and return it in the enclosed envelope. /s/ THOMAS C. LEONARD THOMAS C. LEONARD CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND VICE CHAIRMAN

AMENDMENT OF RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION INTRODUCTION Alpha's Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as currently in effect (the "Certificate of Incorporation"), provides that Alpha's authorized capital stock shall consist of 30,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the "Common Stock"), $0.25 par value. On January 27, 2000, Alpha's Board of Directors authorized an amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation (the "Amendment"), subject to stockholder approval, to increase the number of shares of Common Stock authorized for issuance under the Certificate of Incorporation by 70,000,000 shares to a total of 100,000,000 shares. If the Amendment is adopted, it will become effective upon the filing of the Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. Under the proposed amendment, the first paragraph of Article Fourth of the Certificate of Incorporation would be amended to read as follows: "The total number of shares of stock which the Corporation has authority to issue is one hundred million (100,000,000) shares of Common Stock, $0.25 par value." The stockholders are being asked to approve such Amendment. The authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock would be available for issuance from time to time for such purposes and for such consideration as the Board of Directors may determine to be appropriate without further action by the stockholders, except for those instances in which applicable law or stock exchange rules require stockholder approval. CURRENT USE OF SHARES As of the Record Date, Alpha had 19,843,383 shares of Common Stock outstanding and 2,767,491 shares reserved for issuance under Alpha's employee stock plans, of which, 1,829,097 are covered by outstanding options and 938,394 are available for grant or purchase. Therefore, Alpha's total share requirement as of the Record Date was approximately 22,610,874 shares (the "Share Requirement"). PURPOSES OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT The primary purpose of the Amendment is to provide a sufficient number of shares of Common Stock to effect the 2-for-1 stock split in the form of a dividend approved by the Board of Directors on January 27, 2000, pursuant to which each stockholder of record on March 29, 2000 would be entitled to receive one additional share of Common Stock for each share of Common Stock held on March 29, 2000. Currently, Alpha's Certificate of Incorporation authorizes 30,000,000 shares of Common Stock and Alpha's Share Requirement is 22,567,491. Accordingly, Alpha does not have an adequate number of authorized shares of Common Stock to enable the completion of the stock split. The Board of Directors therefore approved the Amendment, subject to stockholder approval, to increase the number of shares authorized under the Certificate of Incorporation from 30,000,000 to 100,000,000. If the Amendment is not approved by the stockholders, Alpha will be unable to effectuate the stock split. In addition, the Board of Directors believes that it is in Alpha's best interest to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock in order to have additional authorized but unissued shares available for issuance to meet business needs as they arise without the expense and delay of a special meeting of stockholders. If the Amendment is approved, there will be approximately 60,000,000 authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock. The Board of Directors believes that the availability of such additional shares of Common Stock will provide Alpha with the flexibility to issue Common Stock for proper corporate purposes that may be identified in the future. Such future activities may include, without limitation, raising equity capital, adopting additional employee stock plans or reserving additional shares for issuance under its existing employee stock plans, and making acquisitions through the use of stock. Other than as permitted or required under Alpha's existing employee stock plans and outstanding options, the Board of Directors has no immediate plans, understandings, agreements or commitments to issue additional shares of Common Stock for any purposes. The Board of Directors believes that the proposed increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock will make a sufficient number of shares available, should Alpha decide to use its shares for one or more of such previously mentioned purposes or otherwise. Alpha reserves the right to seek a further increase in authorized shares 3
<PAGE> 7 from time to time in the future as considered appropriate by the Board of Directors. POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT If the stockholders approve the proposed Amendment, the Board of Directors may cause the issuance of additional shares of Common Stock without further vote of the stockholders of Alpha, except as provided under Delaware corporate law or under the rules of any national securities exchange or automated quotation system on which shares of Common Stock of Alpha are then listed or traded. Under Alpha's Certificate of Incorporation, Alpha's stockholders do not have preemptive rights to subscribe to additional securities which may be issued by Alpha, which means that current stockholders do not have a prior right to purchase any new issue of capital stock of Alpha in order to maintain their proportionate ownership of Alpha's Common Stock. In addition, if the Board of Directors elects to issue additional shares of Common Stock, such issuance could have a dilutive effect on the earnings per share, voting power and holdings of current stockholders. In addition to the corporate purposes discussed above, the proposed Amendment could, under certain circumstances, have an anti-takeover effect, although this is not the intent of the Board of Directors. For example, it may be possible for the Board of Directors to delay or impede a takeover or transfer of control of Alpha by causing such additional authorized shares to be issued to holders who might side with the Board of Directors in opposing a takeover bid that the Board of Directors determines is not in the best interests of Alpha and its stockholders. The Amendment therefore may have the effect of discouraging unsolicited takeover attempts. By potentially discouraging initiation of any such unsolicited takeover attempt, the proposed Amendment may limit the opportunity for Alpha's stockholders to dispose of their shares at the higher price generally available in takeover attempts or that may be available under a merger proposal. The proposed Amendment may have the effect of permitting Alpha's current management, including the current Board of Directors, to retain its position, and place it in a better position to resist changes that stockholders may wish to make if they are dissatisfied with the conduct of Alpha's business. However, the Board of Directors is not aware of any attempt to take control of Alpha and the Board of Directors has not presented this proposal with the intent that it be utilized as a type of anti-takeover device. There are other provisions in Alpha's Certificate of Incorporation and under the Delaware General Corporation Law which could have an anti-takeover effect. Specifically, there are provisions in our Certificate of Incorporation that could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of Alpha, including: staggered election of directors; no action by stockholders without a meeting; special meetings of the stockholders may only be called by the Chairman or the President; the requirement that holders of 80% of our voting stock approve certain mergers, consolidations, asset sales, leases and other transactions involving a person (or an affiliate of a person) who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, 5% or more of our shares entitled to vote in the election of Directors; and the requirement that holders of 90% of our voting stock approve certain mergers, consolidations, asset sales, leases and other transactions involving a person (or an affiliate of a person) who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, 20% or more of our shares entitled to vote in the election of directors. In addition, Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law prohibits us from engaging in certain business combinations with any interested stockholder (which, subject to certain exceptions, includes any person who together with such person's affiliates and associates owns 15% or more of our outstanding voting stock) for a period of three years following the date that such stockholder became an interested stockholder, unless (i) prior to such date the Board of Directors has approved the business combination or the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, (ii) upon consummation of the transaction which resulted in the stockholder becoming an interested stockholder, the stockholder and his affiliates and associates owned at least 85% of our voting stock (excluding certain management and employee plan shares), or (iii) the business combination is approved by the Board of Directors and authorized by an affirmative vote of at least 66 2/3% of our outstanding voting stock which is not owned by the interested stockholder or his affiliates or associates. VOTE REQUIRED; RECOMMENDATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS Affirmative votes constituting a majority of the shares of outstanding Common Stock on the Record Date and entitled to vote will be required to approve the Amendment to Alpha's Certificate of Incorporation. Since the required vote of the stockholders is based upon the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock, rather than on shares actually voted, the failure by the holder of any such shares to submit a proxy or to vote in person at the Special Meeting, including abstentions and "broker non-votes" will have the same effect as a vote against the approval of the amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation. If the Amendment is not approved by the stockholders, Alpha will be unable to effectuate the 2-for-1 stock split in the form of a dividend approved by the Board of Directors on January 4
<PAGE> 8 27, 2000. Upon the proper execution and return of the enclosed form of Proxy, the shares represented thereby will be voted in accordance with the direction indicated in the Proxy, unless the Proxy is revoked. If no directions are indicated in such Proxy, the shares represented thereby will be voted "FOR" the approval of the proposed Amendment. ALPHA'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT STOCKHOLDERS VOTE "FOR" THE AMENDMENT TO THE CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION. OTHER MATTERS Alpha knows of no other matters to be submitted at the Special Meeting. If any other matters properly come before the Special Meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the enclosed form of Proxy to vote the shares they represent as the Board of Directors may recommend.
