This proxy statement supplement, dated May 9, 2019, supplements the definitive proxy statement (“Proxy Statement”) of First Solar, Inc. (the “Company”) relating to the Company’s annual meeting of stockholders to be held on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 12:00 p.m., Eastern Time, virtually on the Internet.

The following supplemental information should be read in conjunction with the information contained on page 47 of the Proxy Statement under the caption “Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance”:

After the filing of the Proxy Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, we became aware that one Form 4 report for each of Philip DeJong, Georges Antoun, Raffi Garabedian, and Mark R. Widmar in connection with two transactions (in each case, the vesting of restricted stock units and the withholding of shares of common stock to satisfy tax obligations upon the vesting of restricted stock units) was filed one day late on November 27, 2018.

All information in the Proxy Statement, as supplemented by the information in this proxy statement supplement, should be considered in casting your vote by proxy or at the annual meeting of stockholders.
