Dear Netlist Stockholder:

 

We are writing to remind you that the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Netlist, Inc. (“Annual Meeting”) will be held on August 7, 2020 at 10:00 a.m., Pacific Time, at the offices of Toppan Merrill Corporation at 2603 Main Street, Suite 610, Irvine, California 92614.

 

Our records indicate that as of June 9, 2020, the “Record Date” for the Annual Meeting, you held shares of Netlist and, therefore, you are entitled to vote on the matters described in our Definitive Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting (the “Proxy Statement”) and as set forth on the proxy card attached thereto, which were mailed to you on or about June 26, 2020. Our records indicate that we have not yet received your vote.

 

REMEMBER: Your vote is important, no matter how large or small your holdings may be. Please take a moment to vote your shares.

 

In particular, our Board of Directors recommends that you vote your shares in favor of the proposals described in the Proxy Statement and as set forth on the proxy card. Voting promptly may help reduce solicitation costs and will eliminate your receiving follow-up phone calls and/or mailings.

 

As the date of the Annual Meeting approaches, if we have not received your proxy, you may receive a phone call from a representative of Georgeson LLC (“Georgeson”), our proxy solicitor, reminding you to exercise your right to vote. Should you have any questions with regards to voting your shares, please call our proxy solicitor, Georgeson, at 1-866-295-4321.

 

Thank you in advance for your participation and your consideration in this extremely important matter.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Sasaki
Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary
