This communication contains forward-looking statements relating to future events and expectations that are based on certain assumptions and contingencies. The forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and relate to the Company’s performance on a going-forward basis. The forward-looking statements in this communication involve risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results, performance or trends to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements herein or in previous disclosures.

The Company believes that all forward-looking statements made by it in this communication have a reasonable basis, but there can be no assurance that the expectations, beliefs or projections as expressed in the forward-looking statements will actually occur or prove to be correct. In addition to general industry and global economic conditions, factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements in this communication include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure of any one or more of the assumptions stated above to prove to be correct; (ii) the risks relating to forward-looking statements and other “Risk Factors” discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 and additional risk factors that may be identified from time to time in future filings of the Company; (iii) the conditions to the completion of the Company’s pending business combination transaction with Coherent, Inc. (“Coherent”) (the “Transaction”) and the remaining equity investment by Bain Capital, LP, including the receipt of any required regulatory approvals, and the risks that those conditions will not be satisfied in a timely manner or at all; (iv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to an amendment or termination of the merger agreement relating to the Transaction; (v) the Company’s ability to finance the Transaction, the substantial indebtedness the Company expects to incur in connection with the Transaction and the need to generate sufficient cash flows to service and repay such debt; (vi) the possibility that the Company may be unable to achieve expected synergies, operating efficiencies and other benefits within the expected time-frames or at all and to successfully integrate Coherent’s operations with those of the Company; (vii) the possibility that such integration may be more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected or that operating costs and business disruption (including, without limitation, disruptions in relationships with employees, customers or suppliers) may be greater than expected in connection with the Transaction; (viii) litigation and any unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the Transaction; (ix) the risk that disruption from the Transaction materially and adversely affects the respective

The Company disclaims any obligation to update information contained in these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or developments, or otherwise.

These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed transaction, are more fully discussed in the joint proxy statement/prospectus included in the registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-255547) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Transaction (the “Form S-4”). While the list of factors discussed above and the list of factors presented in the Form S-4 are considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward looking statements. Neither the Company nor Coherent assumes any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws.

Our Diligence, Experience with Finisar, and External Benchmarks Suggest our $250M Cost Synergy Target is Very Achievable Scenarios for total cost synergies, Y3 % of Y3 cost baseline (combined spend baseline: $4.9B) X% $M 1 4.7% 6.8% 3.2% 4.8% 6.5% 337 322 250 235 Median: 250 157 II-VI / Coherent Based on Finisar Low Mid High Synergy Target integration 1 2 achievement Based on external benchmark (based on semiconductor / electronics deals) Note: The Company anticipates ~$250mm (1:1) cost to achieve the synergies prescribed above 1. Sum of estimated savings across all functional teams. For each functional team, synergies estimated by 1) deriving savings from Finisar Y3 CV as percentage of FY22 combined spend (in the function) and 2) applying that same percentage reduction to combined (II-VI and Coherent) FY24 functional spend baseline. The sum of the function-by-function calculations yields a different overall percent reduction (6.8%) than the single calculation of total synergies on total baseline (7.3%) 2. High-end estimate representative of M&A deals with greater business commonality and overlap between the two companies 3. Finisar closed on September 24, 2019, and II-VI paid a total fair value of consideration of $2.9B. Page 22
