Item 5.02 - Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of
Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers; Compensatory Arrangement of Certain Officers.

(d) On August 20, 2013, our board of directors (the "Board"), appointed Blake A. Welcher to our Board effective immediately. Mr. Welcher will serve as an independent director. The Board has determined that Mr. Welcher qualifies as independent under the independence standards set forth in Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5605(a)(2). With the addition of Mr. Welcher, the size of the Board increases to six members.

Mr. Welcher brings more than 19 years of industry experience to Netlist's Board of Directors. He has an extensive background in worldwide licensing operations, corporate governance, risk management, intellectual property and legal affairs. He has served as Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of DTS, Inc., a leader in high-definition audio technologies and audio enhancement solutions that is listed on Nasdaq, since November 2003, and as a member of the Company's executive team since March 2000.

Mr. Welcher's compensation for his services as a director will be consistent with that of our other non-employee directors, including the execution and delivery of an indemnification agreement with Mr. Welcher in the form previously approved by the Board, all as described in our proxy statement on Form 14A filed on April 29, 2013. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Welcher and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Welcher was selected as a director. Mr. Welcher is not a party to any transaction that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

On August 20, 2013, we issued a press release announcing the appointment of Mr. Welcher to the Board. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
