   2009 Proxy

Date:

   January 27, 2009

In conjunction with our March 10, 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, Applied’s Annual Report and Form 10-K for fiscal year 2008 and 2009 Proxy Statement are now available to you electronically. You may view and/or print these documents by visiting the Company’s Web site.

Please carefully read the 2009 Proxy Statement. This year we are asking our stockholders to elect 11 directors, approve amendments to Applied’s Certificate of Incorporation that eliminate all supermajority voting provisions contained in the Certificate, and ratify the appointment of KPMG LLP as Applied’s independent registered public accounting firm for fiscal year 2009.

You will receive instructions by e-mail in the next few days on how to vote for each account in which you hold shares if you own Applied stock:

 

   

through the Applied Materials Employee Savings and Retirement Plan (the 401(k) plan);

 

   

purchased through the ESPP and held with UBS Financial Services; or

 

   

as a registered holder.

This year, for the first time, we are pleased to furnish proxy materials to our stockholders primarily over the Internet in accordance with rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Previously, electronic distribution was made available only to our employee stockholders and those stockholders who had specifically consented to receive materials electronically. These rules allow us to provide our stockholders expedited and convenient access to the information they need, while helping to conserve natural resources and lower the costs of printing and delivering proxy materials.

You will receive a card in the mail containing instructions on how to access our proxy materials electronically and how to vote if you own Applied stock:

 

   

in a brokerage account other than through the 401(k) plan or in a Company-sponsored account with UBS Financial Services; or

 

   

as a registered holder, and have not consented to receive the proxy materials electronically.

Please note that if you vote over the Internet, there may be nominal costs associated with electronic access, such as usage charges from telephone companies and Internet access providers.

If you prefer to receive hard copies of the Annual Report and Form 10-K for fiscal year 2008, or the 2009 Proxy Statement, please contact Noe Gil Ochoa in Investor Relations in Santa Clara at ext. 32714.

Dear Applied Materials Stockholder:

 

We cordially invite you to attend Applied Materials’ 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which will be held at our corporate offices at 3050 Bowers Avenue, Building 1, Santa Clara, California 95054 on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time. A live webcast of the Annual Meeting will be available on our website at www.appliedmaterials.com.

 

At this year’s Annual Meeting, stockholders will be asked to: elect eleven directors; approve amendments to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation that eliminate supermajority voting provisions; and ratify the appointment of KPMG LLP as Applied Materials’ independent registered public accounting firm for the current fiscal year. Additional information about the Annual Meeting is given in the attached Notice of 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and Proxy Statement.

 

Having reached the customary board retirement age of 70, James C. Morgan will not be standing for re-election after more than 31 years as a director, including over 20 years as Chairman of the Board. Effective at the Annual Meeting, Mr. Morgan will step down as Chairman of the Board and will become Chairman Emeritus.

 

Mr. Morgan joined Applied Materials in 1976 and served as Chief Executive Officer from 1977 to 2003, one of the longest tenures of any Fortune 500 CEO. With his pioneering vision and pragmatic leadership, Mr. Morgan grew Applied Materials from a modest Silicon Valley semiconductor business into the world’s leading nanomanufacturing technology company.

 

Mr. Morgan created and fostered an environment that values employees, technological innovation, global capability and community involvement. His accomplishments, dedication and leadership have been widely recognized within the global business community. He has received numerous awards from governments, businesses, and educational and community organizations for contributions that have had a long-standing effect on technology, business and society. Mr. Morgan is a recipient of the 1996 National Medal of Technology, awarded by the President of the United States to technological innovators who have made lasting contributions to America’s competitiveness and standard of living. In his honor, The Tech Museum of Innovation annually awards the James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award to an extraordinary individual whose broad vision and leadership help to address some of humanity’s greatest challenges. This award reflects Mr. Morgan’s belief that technology can help individuals reach their full potential and translate their dreams into real solutions for a better world.

 

It is with deep admiration that we express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Morgan for his commitment and efforts on behalf of Applied Materials and its employees, customers, stockholders and other stakeholders, as well as local communities. We are pleased that Mr. Morgan, as Chairman Emeritus, will continue to contribute to the success and growth of Applied Materials.

 

Ms. Deborah A. Coleman also will not be standing for re-election as a director. Ms. Coleman has been a valued member of the Board throughout her nearly 12 years of service, and we extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to her for her contributions to Applied Materials.

 

In accordance with rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, we are pleased to furnish these proxy materials to stockholders for the first time primarily over the Internet rather than in paper form. We believe these rules allow us to provide our stockholders with expedited and convenient access to the information they need, while helping to conserve natural resources and lower the costs of printing and delivering proxy materials.

 

Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we hope you will vote as soon as possible. Voting your proxy will ensure your representation at the Annual Meeting. We urge you to carefully review the proxy materials and to vote FOR

the director nominees, FOR the amendments to the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, and FOR ratification of the appointment of KPMG LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the current fiscal year.

 

We hope to see you at the March 10, 2009 Annual Meeting.

 

Sincerely,
