We are a leading provider of high-power semiconductor and fiber lasers. Our
lasers are changing not only the way things are made but also the things that
can be made. We design, develop and manufacture the critical elements of our
lasers, and we believe our vertically integrated business model
enables us to
rapidly introduce innovative products, control our costs and protect our
intellectual property. In 2017, we sold our products to over 300 customers
worldwide in three primary markets: industrial, microfabrication, and aerospace
and defense.

Our semiconductor lasers are the industry's most brilliant and serve as the core
building block of all of our products. Our vertical integration enables us to
incorporate our semiconductor lasers into our proprietary fiber lasers and also
to sell our semiconductor lasers as standalone solutions. We offer
differentiated high-power fiber lasers that provide our customers with
significant advantages over legacy fiber lasers in the areas of programmability,
serviceability and reliability. By engaging with our customers early in their
system design cycle and utilizing our platform-based approach to product design,
we are able to offer semiconductor and fiber laser solutions optimized to meet
our customers' requirements.

Semiconductor and fiber lasers are displacing legacy lasers and non-laser energy
sources across a wide range of applications in the industrial, microfabrication,
and aerospace and defense markets. In the industrial market, high-power
semiconductor and fiber lasers have enabled the creation of next-generation
industrial systems to perform manufacturing processes such as cutting, welding
and drilling, as well as advanced manufacturing techniques such as additive
manufacturing. In the microfabrication market, many of the critical microscale
features incorporated into products in the automotive, electronics, medical,
semiconductor and other markets are made commercially viable by the precise
power delivery of lasers. In the aerospace and defense market, high-power
semiconductor and fiber lasers are currently used across a wide range of mission
critical applications, such as defending aircraft against missiles, and are
enabling next-generation defense systems.

The growth of the high-power fiber laser market has been driven by a significant
reduction in cost per brilliant watt and a substantial increase in the power
output of semiconductor lasers, at a rate that we believe is similar to Moore's
Law for integrated circuits. The overall laser market, including semiconductor
lasers and fiber lasers, was approximately $9.5 billion in 2015 according to
Strategies Unlimited. The semiconductor and fiber laser portion of the market
addressing industrial, microfabrication, and aerospace and defense sectors was
approximately $2.3 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow to approximately $4.2
billion by 2020. Our global customers include Cincinnati Inc., DMG Mori and
Suzhou Quick Laser Technology Co. in industrial, MKS Instruments and Samsung in
microfabrication, and BAE and Raytheon in aerospace and defense.

Our vertically integrated operations include a semiconductor laser manufacturing
facility at our Vancouver, Washington headquarters, an optical fiber
manufacturing facility in Lohja, Finland, and laser packaging and assembly
facilities in Vancouver, Washington, Hillsboro, Oregon and Shanghai, China. We
were founded in 2000 and possess an intellectual property portfolio that
included over 350 issued or pending patents as of December 31, 2017.

We were incorporated under the name nLight Corporation in Washington in June
2000. We reincorporated in Delaware under the name nLight Photonics Corporation
in August 2000 and changed our name to nLIGHT, Inc. in January 2016. Our
principal executive office is located at 5408 Northeast 88th Street, Building E,
Vancouver, Washington 98665. Our telephone number is (360) 566-4460. Our website
address is www.nlight.net.
