Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Board of Directors of Rubicon Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) has established May 3, 2017 as the date of the Company’s 2017 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2017 Annual Meeting”).

In accordance with the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Bylaws, a stockholder who intends to nominate a director for election or bring other business before the 2017 Annual Meeting must deliver timely written notice thereof to Mardel A. Graffy, Secretary, Rubicon Technology, Inc., 900 East Green Street, Bensenville, Illinois 60106, and must be a stockholder of record at the time notice is delivered and be entitled to vote at the 2017 Annual Meeting. To be timely, the notice must be delivered to the Secretary not later than the close of business on March 4, 2017 and not earlier than the close of business on February 2, 2017.

Because the date of the 2017 Annual Meeting is prior to the one-year anniversary of the Company’s 2016 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2016 Annual Meeting”), the Company has not changed the deadline for submission of stockholder proposals pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As disclosed in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for the 2016 Annual Meeting, the deadline for stockholders to submit proposals to be considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2017 Annual Meeting was January 18, 2017.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.


Dated: January 25, 2017     By:   /s/ Mardel A. Graffy
