Statement Letter Regarding Typhoons Meranti and Malakas

To whom it may concern:

Last week, Taiwan and China were hit by Typhoons Meranti and Malakas. In the spirit of providing timely communication regarding the continuity of supply of Bourns® products and Komatsulite™ products, Bourns is providing this communication.

Two (2) of Bourns facilities located in China were in the path of Typhoon Meranti and the facilities did receive some minor damage. We are pleased to report, however, that all employees are safe and there has been no impact to the day-to-day operations at either facility. Additionally, Bourns has contacted its sub-suppliers in the affected regions, and fortunately, there appears to be no disruption to Bourns' supply chain.

Typhoon Malakas made landfall in Japan but did not affect any of the facilities of Komatsulite. We are not aware of any adverse impact on the material suppliers to Komatsulite.

Bourns will continue to monitor its supply chain. In the unlikely event that any deliveries of our company's products are affected by the Typhoons, you will be contacted timely by Bourns.

Best regards,

J. Kelly Vogt
Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales
