The Board of Directors of Nuburu, Inc. (the “Company”) has scheduled its 2023 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2023 Annual Meeting”) for 9:00 a.m. Mountain Time on June 16, 2023, to be conducted virtually via live audio webcast.

The Company has set a deadline of March 24, 2023 for the receipt of any stockholder proposals for inclusion in the proxy materials to be distributed in connection with the 2023 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which the Company believes to be a reasonable time before it expects to begin to print and distribute its proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting. Any Exchange Act Rule 14a-8 proposal received after this date will be considered untimely. Stockholders should send any such proposal to the Company’s Secretary at Nuburu, Inc., 7442 S Tucson Way, Suite 130, Centennial, CO 80112, Attention: Corporate Secretary, and such proposal must comply with all applicable requirements set forth in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including Exchange Act Rule 14a-8, and the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) in order to be eligible for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting.

Pursuant to the Bylaws, any stockholder seeking to raise a proposal outside the processes of Exchange Act Rule 14a-8 or make a nomination for consideration at the 2023 Annual Meeting, but not included in the proxy materials for the 2023 Annual Meeting, must comply with the requirements of the Bylaws, including by delivering notice of such stockholder’s proposal or nomination to the Company’s Secretary at Nuburu, Inc., 7442 S Tucson Way, Suite 130, Centennial, CO 80112, Attention: Corporate Secretary no later than 5:00 p.m., Mountain time, on March 24, 2023. Any proposal or nomination received after such date will be considered untimely and will not be considered at the 2023 Annual Meeting.

Please note that an adjournment, rescheduling or postponement of the 2023 Annual Meeting date, or any announcement of such action, will not commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for giving such notice under the Bylaws or submitting a proposal pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 14a-8.
