Wolfspeed® and the Wolfstreak logo are registered trademarks and the Wolfspeed logo is a trademark of Wolfspeed, Inc. 3 FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS AND NON-GAAP MEASURES Note on Forward-Looking Statements This presentation includes forward-looking statements about Wolfspeed’s business outlook, future financial results and targets, product markets, plans and objectives for future operations, and product development programs and goals. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, both known and unknown, that may cause actual results to differ materially, as discussed in our most recent annual report and other reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include risks relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including the risk of new and different government restrictions that limit our ability to do business, the risk of infection in our workforce and subsequent impact on our ability to conduct business, the risk that our supply chain, including our contract manufacturers, or customer demand may be negatively impacted, the risk posed by vaccine resistance and the emergence of fast-spreading variants, the risk that the COVID-19 pandemic will lead to a global recession and the potential for costs associated with our operations during current and future years to be greater than we anticipate as a result of all of these factors; the risk that we may not obtain sufficient orders to achieve our targeted revenues; the risk that the markets for our products will not develop as we expect, including the adoption of our products by EV manufacturers; the risk that our device pipeline will not convert into orders and revenue at the rates that we have assumed or historically experienced; price competition in key markets; the risk that we may experience production difficulties that preclude us from shipping sufficient quantities to meet customer orders or that result in higher production costs, lower yields and lower margins; our ability to lower costs; the risk that our results will suffer if we are unable to balance fluctuations in customer demand and capacity, including bringing on additional capacity on a timely basis to meet customer demand; the risk that longer manufacturing lead times may cause customers to fulfill their orders with a competitor's products instead; product mix; risks associated with the ramp-up of production of our new products, and our entry into new business channels different from those in which we have historically operated; risks associated with our factory optimization plan and construction of a new device fabrication or materials manufacturing facilities, including design and construction delays and cost overruns, issues in installing and qualifying new equipment and ramping production, poor production process yields and quality control, and potential increases to our restructuring costs; the risk that we or our channel partners are not able to develop and expand customer bases and accurately anticipate demand from end customers, which can result in increased inventory and reduced orders as we experience wide fluctuations in supply and demand; the risk that the economic and political uncertainty caused by the tariffs imposed by the United States on Chinese goods, and corresponding Chinese tariffs and currency devaluation in response, may negatively impact demand for our products; risks related to international sales and purchases; ongoing uncertainty in global economic conditions, infrastructure development or customer demand that could negatively affect product demand, collectability of receivables and other related matters as consumers and businesses may defer purchases or payments, or default on payments; risks resulting from the concentration of our business among few customers, including the risk that customers may reduce or cancel orders or fail to honor purchase commitments; the risk that our investments may experience periods of significant market value and interest rate volatility causing us to recognize fair value losses on our investment; the risk posed by managing an increasingly complex supply chain that has the ability to supply a sufficient quantity of raw materials, components and finished products with the required specifications and quality; the risk we may be required to record a significant charge to earnings if our remaining goodwill or amortizable assets become impaired; risks relating to confidential information theft or misuse, including through cyber-attacks, cyber intrusion or ransomware; our ability to complete development and commercialization of products under development; the rapid development of new technology and competing products that may impair demand or render our products obsolete; the potential lack of customer acceptance for our products; risks associated with ongoing litigation; the risk that customers do not maintain their favorable perception of our brand and products, resulting in lower demand for our products; the risk that our products fail to perform or fail to meet customer requirements or expectations, resulting in significant additional costs; risks associated with strategic transactions, including the possibility that we may not realize the full purchase price contemplated in connection with the sale of our former LED Products or Lighting Products business units; and other factors discussed in our filings with the SEC, including our report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 27, 2021, and subsequent reports filed with the SEC. The forward-looking statements in this presentation were baaed on management’s analysis of information available at the time the presentation was prepared and on assumptions deemed reasonable by management. Our industry and business is constantly evolving, and Wolfspeed undertakes no obligation to update such forward-looking statements to reflect new information, future events, subsequent developments or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable U.S. federal securities laws and regulations. Note on Non-GAAP Measures This presentation includes certain non-GAAP financial measures and targets. Wolfspeed’s management evaluates results and makes operating decisions using both GAAP and non-GAAP measures included in this presentation. Non-GAAP measures exclude certain costs, charges and expenses which are included in GAAP measures. By including these non-GAAP measures, management intends to provide investors with additional information to further analyze the Company’s performance, core results and underlying trends. Non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and non-GAAP measures should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this presentation. Please see the Appendix at the end of this presentation.

WOLFSPEED CONFIDENTIAL & PROPRIETARY © 2021 Wolfspeed, Inc. All rights reserved. Wolfspeed® and the Wolfstreak logo are registered trademarks and the Wolfspeed logo is a trademark of Wolfspeed, Inc. 131 Wolfspeed excludes the following items from one or more of its non-GAAP measures when applicable: • Stock-based compensation expense. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock, performance stock awards and employee stock purchases through its Employee Stock Purchase Program. Wolfspeed excludes stock-based compensation expenses from its non-GAAP measures because they are non-cash expenses that Wolfspeed does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. • Amortization or impairment of acquisition-related intangibles. Wolfspeed incurs amortization or impairment of acquisition-related intangibles in connection with acquisitions. Wolfspeed excludes these items because they arise from Wolfspeed's prior acquisitions and have no direct correlation to the ongoing operating results of Wolfspeed's business. • Abandonment of long-lived assets. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, Wolfspeed modified its long-range plan regarding a portion of its Durham, North Carolina campus. As a result, Wolfspeed decided it will no longer complete the construction of certain buildings on the Durham campus. The carrying value of the abandoned assets has been reduced to an estimated salvage value. Wolfspeed does not believe this expense is reflective of ongoing operating results. • Factory optimization restructuring. In May 2019, the Company started a significant, multi-year factory optimization plan to be anchored by a state-of-the-art, automated 200mm Silicon Carbide device fabrication facility. In September 2019, the Company announced the intent to build the new fabrication facility in Marcy, New York to complement the factory expansion underway at its U.S. campus headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. As part of the plan, the Company will incur restructuring costs associated with the movement of equipment as well as disposals on certain long-lived assets. Because these charges relate to assets which had been retired prior to the end of their estimated useful lives, Wolfspeed does not believe these costs are reflective of ongoing operating results. Similarly, Wolfspeed does not consider the realized net losses on sale of assets relating to the restructuring to be reflective of ongoing operating results. • Factory optimization start-up costs. As part of the factory optimization plan, the Company has incurred and will incur start-up costs. Wolfspeed does not believe these costs are reflective of ongoing operating results. In fiscal 2022, these costs will include an estimated $80.0 million of start-up and pre-production related costs associated with the Company ramping production at its new device fabrication facility in Marcy, New York. • Severance and other restructuring. These costs relate to the Company's realignment of certain resources as part of the Company's transition to a more focused semiconductor company. Wolfspeed does not believe these costs are reflective of ongoing operating results. • Project, transformation and transaction costs. The Company has incurred professional services fees and other costs associated with completed and potential acquisitions and divestitures, as well as internal transformation programs focused on optimizing the Company's administrative processes. Wolfspeed excludes these items because Wolfspeed believes they are not reflective of the ongoing operating results of Wolfspeed's business. • Transition service agreement costs. As a result of the sale of the Lighting Products business unit, the Company is providing certain information technology services under a transition services agreement which will not be reimbursed. Wolfspeed excludes the costs of these services because Wolfspeed believes they are not reflective of the ongoing operating results of Wolfspeed's business. • Accretion on convertible notes, net of capitalized interest. The issuance of the Company's convertible senior notes in August 2018 and April 2020 results in interest accretion on the convertible notes' issue costs and discount. Wolfspeed considers these items as either limited in term or having no impact on the Company's cash flows, and therefore has excluded such items to facilitate a review of current operating performance and comparisons to the Company's past operating performance. NON-GAAP ADJUSTMENTS
