(the “Company”) will be held on Thursday, June 25, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. Israel time (10:00 a.m. Eastern time), at the Company’s offices, located at 5 David Fikes St., Rehovot 7610201, Israel.

5.
Approval and ratification of the re-appointment of Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young, as the independent auditors of the Company for the period ending at the close of the next annual general meeting.
 
In addition, the shareholders will be requested to consider at the Meeting the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019.
 
We know of no other matters to be submitted at the Meeting other than as specified herein. If any other business is properly brought before the Meeting, the persons named as proxies may vote in respect thereof in accordance with their best judgment.
 
In accordance with the Israeli Companies Law 5759-1999, and regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Companies Law”), any shareholder of the Company holding at least one percent of the outstanding voting rights of the Company for the Meeting may submit to the Company a proposed additional agenda item for the Meeting, to the Company’s offices, c/o Ms. Leeat Peleg, Adv., at 5 David Fikes St., Rehovot 7610201, Israel, no later than Tuesday, May 26, 2020. To the extent that there are any additional agenda items that the board of directors determines to add as a result of any such submission, the Company will publish an updated agenda and proxy card with respect to the Meeting, no later than Tuesday, June 2, 2020, which will be furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on Form 6-K, and will be made available to the public on the Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov and in addition at http://www.magna.isa.gov.il or http://maya.tase.co.il.
 
The approval of each of the Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the Company’s shareholders holding at least a majority of the Company’s ordinary shares (“Shares”) present, in person or by proxy, and voting on the matter.
 
The approval of Proposal No. 3 is also subject to the fulfillment of one of the following additional voting requirements: (i) the majority of the Shares that are voted at the Meeting in favor of the Proposal, excluding abstentions, includes a majority of the votes of shareholders who are not controlling shareholders or do not have a personal interest in the approval of the Proposal; or (ii) the total number of Shares of the shareholders mentioned in clause (i) above that are voted against the Proposal does not exceed two percent (2%) of the total voting rights in the Company.
 
For this purpose, a “controlling shareholder” is any shareholder that has the ability to direct the Company’s activities (other than by means of being a director or office holder of the Company. A person is presumed to be a controlling shareholder if it holds or controls, by himself or together with others, one half or more of any one of the “means of control” of a company. “Means of control” is defined as any one of the following: (i) the right to vote at a general meeting of a company, or (ii) the right to appoint directors of a company or its chief executive officer. A “personal interest” of a shareholder in an action or transaction of a company includes a personal interest of any of the shareholder’s relatives (i.e. spouse, brother or sister, parent, grandparent, child as well as child, brother, sister or parent of such shareholder’s spouse or the spouse of any of the above) or an interest of a company with respect to which the shareholder or the shareholder’s relative (as defined above) holds 5% or more of such company’s issued shares or voting rights, in which any such person has the right to appoint a director or the chief executive officer or in which any such person serves as director or the chief executive officer, including the personal interest of a person voting pursuant to a proxy which the proxy grantor has a personal interest, whether or not the person voting pursuant to such proxy has discretion with regards to the vote; and excludes an interest arising solely from the ownership of ordinary shares of a company.
 

If a shareholder does not state whether he or she is a controlling shareholder or has personal interest, these Shares will not be voted for Proposal No.  3.
 
In connection with Proposal 3, the Companies Law allows the Board to approve such proposal even if the general meeting of shareholders has voted against its approval, provided that the Company’s compensation committee, and thereafter the Board, each determines to approve it, based on detailed arguments, and after having reconsidered the matter and concluded that such action is in the best interest of the Company.
 
Only shareholders of record at the close of business on May 26, 2020 (the “Record Date”) will be entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at the Meeting. All shareholders are cordially invited to attend the Meeting in person.
 
As of May 15, 2020, the Company had 28,072,716 issued and outstanding Shares, each of which is entitled to one vote upon the matters to be presented at the Meeting.
 
Shareholders who will not attend the Meeting in person may vote with respect to Proposal Nos. 1 through 5 by means of a proxy card and are obliged to complete, sign, date and return the proxy card no later than four hours before the time of the Meeting (i.e., 1:00 p.m. (Israel time) on June 25, 2020). A form of proxy card will be enclosed with the proxy statement. The form of proxy card was also furnished to the Commission on Form 6-K, and is available to the public on the Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov and in addition at http://www.magna.isa.gov.il or http://maya.tase.co.il.
 
All Shares represented by properly executed proxies received prior to or at the Meeting and not revoked prior to, or at, the Meeting in accordance with the procedures described in the proxy statement, will be voted as specified in the instructions indicated in such proxies. Subject to applicable law and the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market, in the absence of such instructions, the Shares represented by properly executed and received proxies will be voted “FOR” all of the proposed resolutions to be presented at the Meeting for which the Company’s board of directors recommends a “FOR”, other than Proposal No. 3.
 
We currently intend to hold the Meeting in person. However, depending on developments with respect to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we might hold the Meeting virtually on the above date and time instead of in person. If we determine that a change to a virtual meeting format is advisable or required, an announcement of such change will be made on our Investor Relations website at https://www.novami.com/investors/lobby/ and on Form 6-K as promptly as practicable. We encourage you to check this website one week prior to the meeting date if you are planning to attend the Meeting.
 
Shareholders wishing to express their position on an agenda item for this Meeting may do so by submitting a written statement (“Position Statement”) to the Company’s offices, c/o Ms. Leeat Peleg, Adv., at 5 David Fikes St., Rehovot 7610201, Israel. Any Position Statement received will be furnished to the Commission on Form 6-K, and will be made available to the public on the Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov and in addition at http://www.magna.isa.gov.il or http://maya.tase.co.il. Position Statements should be submitted to the Company no later than June 15, 2020.
 
A shareholder is entitled to contact the Company directly and receive the text of the proxy card and any Position Statement.
 
A shareholder, whose Shares are registered with a TASE member and are not registered on the Company’s shareholder’s register, is entitled to receive from the TASE member who holds the Shares on the shareholder’s behalf, by e-mail, for no charge, a link to the text of proxy card and to the Position Statements posted on the Israel Securities Authority website, unless the shareholder notified that he or she is not so interested; provided, that the notice was provided with respect to a particular securities account, prior to the Record Date.
 
ii

A shareholder, whose Shares are registered with a member of the TASE, is required to prove his or her Share ownership to vote at the Meeting. Such shareholder shall provide the Company with an ownership certificate (as of the Record Date) from that TASE member and is entitled to receive the ownership certificate in the branch of the TASE member or by mail to his address (in consideration of mailing fees only), if the shareholder so requested. Such a request will be made in advance for a particular securities account. Alternatively, shareholders who hold Shares through members of the TASE may vote electronically via the electronic voting system of the Israel Securities Authority up to six hours before the time fixed for the Meeting. Such shareholder should receive instructions about electronic voting from the TASE member through which he or she holds the Shares.
 
Discussion at the Meeting will be commenced if a quorum is present. A quorum is constituted by two or more shareholders who are present in person or by proxy, or who have delivered to the Company a proxy card indicating their manner of voting, and who hold or represent Shares conferring in the aggregate at least one-third (33.33%) of the voting power in the Company. For this purpose, abstaining shareholders shall be deemed present at the meeting. If a quorum is not present within half an hour of the time designated for the Meeting, the Meeting will be adjourned to July 2, 2020, at the same time and place. At the adjourned Meeting, any number of shareholders who are present in person or proxy, or who have delivered a proxy card, will constitute a quorum.

At the Meeting, the following resolutions will be proposed for adoption by the shareholders:
 

1.
Approval of the re-election of each of Dr. Michael Brunstein, Mr. Avi Cohen, Mr. Raanan Cohen, Ms. Dafna Gruber, Mr. Ronnie (Miron) Kenneth and Ms. Zehava Simon, and election of Mr. Eitan Oppenhaim, as a director of the Company to hold office until the close of the next annual general meeting;

Approval of amendments to the memorandum and articles of association of the Company; and
 

5.
Approval and ratification of the re-appointment of Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young, as the independent auditors of the Company for the period ending at the close of the next annual general meeting.
 
In addition, the shareholders will be requested to consider at the Meeting the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019.
 
Shareholders Entitled to Vote
 
Only holders of record of Shares at the close of business on May 26, 2020 (the “Record Date”) are entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Meeting.
 
As of May 15, 2020, the Company had 28,072,716 issued and outstanding Shares. Each Share is entitled to one vote on each matter to be voted on at the Meeting. The votes of all shareholders voting on a matter are counted and abstentions are not taken into account (other than for quorum purposes).
 
We currently intend to hold the Meeting in person. However, depending on developments with respect to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we might hold the Meeting virtually on the above date and time instead of in person. If we determine that a change to a virtual meeting format is advisable or required, an announcement of such change will be made on our Investor Relations website at https://www.novami.com/investors/lobby/ and on Form 6-K as promptly as practicable. We encourage you to check this website one week prior to the meeting date if you are planning to attend the Meeting.
 

Proxies
 
All shareholders who are unable to attend the Meeting in person are requested to complete, date and sign the enclosed form of proxy and return it promptly in the pre-addressed envelope provided.
 
If you hold ordinary shares in “street name,” that is, you are an underlying beneficial holder who holds ordinary shares through a bank, broker or other nominee, the voting process will be based on your directing the bank, broker or other nominee to vote the ordinary shares in accordance with the voting instructions on your voting instruction card. Because a beneficial owner is not a shareholder of record, you may not vote those shares directly at the Meeting unless you obtain a “legal proxy” from the bank, broker or nominee that holds your shares, giving you the right to vote the shares at the Meeting.
 
Please follow the instructions on the proxy card or voting instruction card received from your bank, broker or nominee. You may also be able to submit voting instructions to a bank, broker or nominee by phone or via the Internet if your voting instruction card describes such voting methods. Please be certain to have your control number from your voting instruction card ready for use in providing your voting instructions.
 
It is important for a shareholder that holds ordinary shares through a bank or broker to instruct its bank or broker how to vote its shares if the shareholder wants its shares to count for the Proposal.
 
A shareholder, whose Shares are registered with a TASE member and are not registered on the Company’s shareholders’ register, is entitled to receive from the TASE member who holds the Shares on the shareholder’s behalf, by e-mail, for no charge, a link to the text of proxy card and to the position statements posted on the Israel Securities Authority website, unless the shareholder notified that he or she is not so interested; provided, that the notice was provided with respect to a particular securities account, prior to the Record Date. A shareholder, whose Shares are registered with a member of the TASE, is required to prove his or her Share ownership to vote at the Meeting. Such shareholder shall provide the Company with an ownership certificate (as of the Record Date) from that TASE member and is entitled to receive the ownership certificate in the branch of the TASE member or by mail to his address (in consideration of mailing fees only), if the shareholder so requested. Such a request will be made in advance for a particular securities account. Alternatively, shareholders who hold Shares through members of the TASE may vote electronically via the electronic voting system of the Israel Securities Authority up to six hours before the time fixed for the Meeting. You should receive instructions about electronic voting from the TASE member through which you hold your Shares.
 
Upon the receipt of a properly executed proxy in the form enclosed herewith, the persons named as proxies therein will vote the Shares covered thereby in accordance with the directions of the shareholder executing such proxy. Subject to applicable law and the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market, in the absence of such instructions, the Shares represented by properly executed and received proxies will be voted “FOR” all of the proposed resolutions to be presented at the Meeting for which the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) recommends a “FOR”, other than Proposal No. 3.

Quorum and Voting Requirements
 
The quorum required consists of two or more shareholders who are present in person or proxy (or who have delivered a proxy card indicating their manner of voting) and who together hold or represent Shares conferring in the aggregate at least one third (33.33%) of the voting power in the Company. For this purpose, abstaining shareholders shall be deemed present at the meeting. If a quorum is not present within one half hour of the time designated for the Meeting, the Meeting shall be adjourned to July 2, 2020, at the same time and place. At the adjourned Meeting, any number of shareholders who are present in person or by proxy, or who have delivered a proxy card, shall constitute a quorum.
 
The approval of each of the Proposals requires the affirmative vote of the Company’s shareholders holding at least a majority of the Shares present, in person or by proxy, and voting on the matter.
 
The approval of Proposal No. 3 is also subject to the fulfillment of one of the following additional voting requirements: (i) the majority of the Shares that are voted at the Meeting in favor of the Proposal, excluding abstentions, includes a majority of the votes of shareholders who are not controlling shareholders or do not have a personal interest in the approval of the Proposal; or (ii) the total number of Shares of the shareholders mentioned in clause (i) above that are voted against the Proposal does not exceed two percent (2%) of the total voting rights in the Company.
 
For this purpose, a “controlling shareholder” is any shareholder that has the ability to direct the Company’s activities (other than by means of being a director or office holder of the Company). A person is presumed to be a controlling shareholder if it holds or controls, by himself or together with others, one half or more of any one of the “means of control” of a company. “Means of control” is defined as any one of the following: (i) the right to vote at a general meeting of a company, or (ii) the right to appoint directors of a company or its chief executive officer. A “personal interest” of a shareholder in an action or transaction of a company includes a personal interest of any of the shareholder’s relatives (i.e. spouse, brother or sister, parent, grandparent, child as well as child, brother, sister or parent of such shareholder’s spouse or the spouse of any of the above) or an interest of a company with respect to which the shareholder or the shareholder’s relative (as defined above) holds 5% or more of such company’s issued shares or voting rights, in which any such person has the right to appoint a director or the chief executive officer or in which any such person serves as director or the chief executive officer, including the personal interest of a person voting pursuant to a proxy which the proxy grantor has a personal interest, whether or not the person voting pursuant to such proxy has discretion with regards to the vote; and excludes an interest arising solely from the ownership of ordinary shares of a company.
 
If you do not state whether you are a controlling shareholder or have personal interest, your Shares will not be voted for Proposal No. 3.
 
In connection with Proposal 3, the Companies Law allows the Board to approve such proposal even if the general meeting of shareholders has voted against its approval, provided that the Company’s compensation committee, and thereafter the Board, each determines to approve it, based on detailed arguments, and after having reconsidered the matter and concluded that such action is in the best interest of the Company.
 
Reporting Requirements
 
We are subject to the information reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), applicable to foreign private issuers. We fulfill these requirements by filing reports with the Commission. Our filings are available to the public on the Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov.

PROPOSAL NO. 2
 
APPROVAL OF AMENDMENTS TO THE EMPLOYMENT TERMS OF MR.
EITAN OPPENHAIM, THE PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF
THE COMPANY
 
At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve the following amendments to Mr. Eitan Oppenhaim’s employment terms as our President and Chief Executive Officer:
 

(i)
An increase of Mr. Oppenhaim’s monthly salary to NIS 156,000 from NIS 138,600, effective as of June 2020 salary;
 

(ii)
A grant of 38,500 restricted share units and 38,500 performance share units to be made on July 1, 2020, in accordance with the following terms:
 

a.
The restricted share units shall vest over a period of three (3) years, whereas one third (1/3) of such restricted share units shall vest on each anniversary of the grant, unless such restricted share units have been cancelled in accordance with the terms and conditions of the share incentive plan of the Company or the employment terms of Mr. Oppenhaim.
 

b.
The performance share units shall vest over a period of three (3) years, whereas one third (1/3) of such performance share units shall vest on each anniversary of the grant, provided that the Company meets or exceeds the non-GAAP operating income as set forth in the Company's budget approved by the Board for the fiscal year preceding the date of vesting, unless such performance share units have been cancelled in accordance with the terms and conditions of the share incentive plan of the Company or the employment terms of Mr. Oppenhaim.
 
In the event a portion of the performance share units fails to vest, such portion will be carried forward to the third vesting date and will vest if the Company’s average annual return on equity based on net income during the previous three (3) years will be no less than ten percent (10%).
 
All other employment terms shall remain unchanged. For further information on the compensation terms of Mr. Oppenhaim, please see our Annual Report. Mr. Oppenhaim also serves as a member of our Board and is not entitled to any director’s fee.
 
The proposed amendments to the employment terms of Mr. Oppenhaim were approved by the compensation committee and the Board, while considering, among others, Mr. Oppenhaim’s performance and contribution to the Company, considering the good results in a challenging and volatile year. The amended terms reflect Mr. Oppenhaim’s experience, a comprehensive compensation survey provided to the members of the compensation committee and the Board, the terms of our compensation policy, and the ratio between the employer cost associated with the engagement of the President and Chief Executive Officer and the average and median employer cost associated with the engagement of the other employees of the Company.
 
Our compensation committee and Board approved the terms described above as they believe that, together with the current terms of Mr. Oppenhaim’s compensation, it would serve as an appropriate long-term retention and performance incentive and advance the objectives of the Company, its work plan and long-term strategy.
 
Our compensation committee and Board reviewed a comprehensive benchmark analysis of CEO terms of peer companies (prepared by an independent compensation advisor, Radford). The peer group was constructed with careful consideration and represents an appropriate comparison pool based on the peer companies’ industry, size, revenues and maturity stage and was approved by our compensation committee. According to Radford’s recent survey, Mr. Oppenhaim’s base salary is positioned below the market 50th percentile competitive range, while target total cash aligns with the market 50th percentile. In addition, according to Radford’s survey, Mr. Oppenhaim’s annual LTI award and target total direct compensation are both positioned at the market 25th percentile.
 
The grants under this Proposal No. 2 (if approved), together with the total outstanding options, restricted share units and performance share units granted under our incentive plans, represent approximately 6% of our total issued and outstanding share capital on a fully diluted basis as of May 6, 2020 (which is lower than the 10% threshold set in the Company’s compensation policy).
 
The employment terms of Mr. Oppenhaim following the proposed amendments are consistent with our compensation policy.
 
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
 
RESOLVED, to approve the amendments to the terms of employment of Mr. Eitan Oppenhaim, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as detailed in the Proxy Statement, dated May 19, 2020.”

PROPOSAL NO. 3
 
APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE COMPANY’S COMPENSATION
POLICY FOR DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM
PERMITTED ANNUAL PREMIUM FOR THE COMPANY’S D&O INSURANCE
AND RATIFICATION OF THE PURCHASE OF THE COMPANY’S D&O
INSURANCE POLICY
 
At the annual general meeting of shareholders held on June 17, 2019, our shareholders approved our current compensation policy.
 
Following a review of the compensation policy by our compensation committee and Board, the Company has been advised by its insurance consultants that general changes in the insurance market, that are unrelated to the Company, have led to a significant increase in premium costs in directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policies, and the Company may not be able to renew the current coverage under the existing premium limit, as defined in the compensation policy. In light of the foregoing, our compensation committee and Board have approved, and recommend that our shareholders approve, an amendment to the compensation policy to provide for an increase in the maximum permitted annual premium to be paid by the Company for directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, as described below.
 
It is proposed to amend Section 20.2.1 of the compensation policy as follows (additions are underlined, and deletions are struck through):
 

“20.2.
Nova will provide directors’ and officers’ liability insurance (the “Insurance Policy”) for its directors and Executive Officers as follows:
 

20.2.1.
The annual premium to be paid by the Nova shall not exceed 9% 2% of the aggregate coverage of the Insurance Policy;”
 
In May 2020, upon the expiration of our then current D&O insurance, our compensation committee and Board approved a new D&O policy (the “New D&O Policy”) as of June 1, 2020.
 
Our compensation committee and Board believe that it is in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders to approve the purchase of D&O insurance coverage for up to the same limit of liability as in the previous policy equal to $55 million (including $5 million Side A DIC) per claim and in the aggregate for the term of the New D&O Policy. The proposed annual premium is within the premium limit as amended under this Proposal No. 3.
 
Our compensation committee and the Board have determined that the proposed terms for the New D&O Policy are consistent with market practices, following benchmark review conducted by our insurance consultants. Furthermore, the proposed terms are consistent with the Company’s compensation policy, as amended under this Proposal No. 3.
 
The compensation committee and the Board have noted that the terms of the New D&O Policy deviates from the terms of our compensation policy as currently in effect. Following discussion and consideration of all relevant factors, including the rapid changes in the terms of insurance policies and significant increases in premiums payable, as well as the risks inherent in the industry, our compensation committee and Board have approved and are recommending that the shareholders approve the New D&O Policy.
 
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
 
RESOLVED, to approve the amendment to the Company’s compensation policy for directors and officers and ratify the purchase of the Company's D&O insurance policy, as detailed in the Proxy Statement, dated May 19, 2020.”

PROPOSAL NO. 4
 
APPROVAL OF AMENDMENTS TO THE MEMORANDUM AND ARTICLES OF
ASSOCIATION OF THE COMPANY
 
We propose to adopt at the Meeting amendments to our memorandum and articles of association, as described below.
 
According to our memorandum and articles of association, our English name is “Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd.” and our Hebrew name is “נובה מכשירי מדידה בע״מ”. Over the years, the Company’s offerings have expanded from metrology solutions and systems for the semiconductor manufacturing industry to also include modeling and software solutions to optimize metrology performance and going forward, we intend to continue innovating and diversifying our product portfolio to penetrate more steps of the semiconductor manufacturing process. Our Board believes that the current name does not reflect this change and our brand, and therefore our Board has resolved to change our English and Hebrew names to “Nova Ltd.” and “נובה בע"מ”, respectively. In the event that the proposed change of name is not approved by the Israeli Registrar of Companies, the Chairman of our Board will be authorized to select a different name containing the word “Nova” in combination with another word or expression or to leave the name unchanged (with respect to both the English and Hebrew names).
 
At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to approve the necessary amendments to our memorandum and articles of association to give effect to the proposed change of name. The Board expects that the change of name will be effected within a year of such approval.
 
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
 
RESOLVED, that the Company’s memorandum and articles of association be amended so that the English name of the Company will change from “Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd.” to “Nova Ltd.”, and the Hebrew name of the Company will change from “נובה מכשירי מדידה בע״מ” to “נובה בע"מ”, or such other name as the Chairman of the Board shall determine, as detailed in the Proxy Statement, dated May 19, 2020.”

PROPOSAL NO. 5
 
APPROVAL AND RATIFICATION OF THE RE-APPOINTMENT OF KOST
FORER GABBAY & KASIERER, A MEMBER OF ERNST & YOUNG, AS THE
INDEPENDENT AUDITORS OF THE COMPANY FOR THE PERIOD ENDING
AT THE CLOSE OF THE NEXT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
 
Under the Companies Law and our articles of association, the shareholders of our Company are authorized to appoint the Company’s independent auditors. Under our articles of association, the Board (or a committee, if it is so authorized by the Board) is authorized to determine the independent auditor’s remuneration. In addition, the approval by the Company’s audit committee of the independent auditor’s re-appointment and remuneration is required under the corporate governance rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market.
 
Following the recommendation by the Company’s audit committee and the Board, it is proposed that Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young, be reappointed as the independent auditors of the Company for the period ending at the close of the next annual general meeting. Such auditors served as the Company’s auditors for fiscal year 2019 and have no relationship with the Company or with any affiliate of the Company, except as described in the Annual Report. Information on fees paid to the Company’s independent public accountants may be found in the Annual Report.
 
At the Meeting, it is proposed that the following resolution be adopted:
 
RESOLVED, to approve and ratify the re-appointment of Kost Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernest & Young, as the independent auditors of the Company for the period ending at the close of the next annual general meeting.”
