Applied Materials: Applied Materials Receives Intel's Preferred Quality Supplier Award

* Fourth consecutive year recognized for providing significant contributions
to Intel
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 10, 2014 - Applied Materials, Inc. has been
recognized as one of 18 companies receiving Intel Corporation's Preferred
Quality Supplier (PQS) award for their performance in 2013. Applied Materials
demonstrated industry-leading commitment across all critical focus areas on
which Intel suppliers are measured: quality, cost, availability, technology,
customer service, labor and ethics systems, and environmental sustainability.
Applied Materials is recognized for their significant contributions providing
Intel with wafer fab capital equipment, mask capital equipment, fab
automation software, and services, deemed essential to Intel's success.

"It is a great honor to receive Intel's Preferred Quality Supplier award for
the fourth consecutive year," said Dr. Randhir Thakur, executive vice
president and general manager of the Silicon Systems Group at Applied
Materials. "Our team deeply appreciates our collaboration with Intel, a
strong technology leader instrumental in driving the advancement of Moore's
Law. We are very focused on delivering quality products with speed and
differentiation that meet Intel's high standards."

"Applied Materials is a role model in meeting the needs of our manufacturing
organization by tailoring their services to the wide variety of factory
requirements across Intel's network. We thank Applied Materials for their
broad engagement and look forward to even more progress to address overall
cost issues in 2014," said Kirby Jefferson, VP and General Manager of F11X.

The PQS award is part of Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement
(SCQI) program that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and
continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80
percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost,
quality, availability, technology, environmental, social and governance
goals. Suppliers must also achieve 80 percent or greater on a challenging
improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems.
