NUBURU Announces Strategic 1-for-40 Reverse Stock Split to Enhance Shareholder Value and Return to Trading on NYSE American

NUBURU, Inc. (“NUBURU” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: BURU) (OTC: BURU), a leading innovator in high-power and high-brightness industrial blue laser technology, announced that it will continue its previously announced plan to implement a 1-for-40 reverse stock split of its common stock (“Reverse Split”), with an anticipated implementation date of July 1, 2024 (the “Effective Date”), rather than the previously announced June 24, 2024 anticipated implementation date. Due to the NYSE halting trading in the common stock upon the initial announcement of the Reverse Split, the Company was unable to implement the Reverse Split as announced. The Company is in the process of appealing the NYSE's determination to initiate proceedings to delist its common stock and is being traded on the over-the-counter market under the symbol “BURU” in the meantime.

The common stock should begin trading on a split-adjusted basis at the commencement of trading on the trading day following the Effective Date under the Company’s existing trading symbol “BURU.” The Common Stock will be assigned a new CUSIP number, 67021W301, in connection with the Reverse Split.

“Our decision to execute this reverse stock split is part of our strategic plan to improve the marketability and liquidity of our stock, as we aim to attract a broader range of institutional investors in support of our long-term growth strategy, and return to trading on NYSE American,” said Brian Knaley, CEO of NUBURU, Inc.

The Company may not be successful in returning to trading on NYSE American or with respect to its appeal of NYSE’s delisting determination. If the Company is not able to satisfy NYSE American bid price requirements, it would continue to be traded on the over-the-counter market, which could negatively impact the Company by reducing the liquidity and market price of its common stock and the number of investors willing to hold or acquire the Company's common stock, which could negatively impact the Company's ability to raise equity financing.
