Business Continuity Impact Notice: Russia – Ukraine Conflict Update

Riverside, Calif., March 15, 2022

Dear Valued Customers of Bourns,

This letter is to provide you with an update regarding the possible impact on the Bourns group of companies' ability to supply Bourns® products to our customers due to developments in Ukraine.

Supply Chain Impact:
In addition to the anticipated shortage of Palladium (Pd) and certain Noble gases reported in our letter dated March 1, 2022, we expect future shortages of copper-beryllium in the global market and we are taking measures to identify second sources. As of today, we do not have any other immediate supply chain concerns to report related directly to the Russia – Ukraine conflict. Should any of our suppliers inform us of any further changes to their supply chain or require price increases due to the ongoing conflict and/or imposed sanctions that could impact the Bourns group of companies' production either immediately or in the longer term, we will escalate this to our customers promptly. This letter represents our best and current knowledge of the situation. However, this letter is not a warranty or guarantee of any kind. If the situation changes, we will take steps to mitigate and inform you accordingly.

Yours truly,
James Harrington
Bourns, Inc.
Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales
