This Prospectus Supplement supplements the Prospectus dated May 5, 1997 (the "Prospectus") of Intevac, Inc. (the "Company") relating to resales from time to time by holders of $57,500,000 aggregate principal amount of 6 1/2% Convertible Subordinated Notes due 2004 (the "Convertible Notes") of the Company issuable upon the conversion of the Convertible Notes (the "Convertible Shares"). The Convertible Notes and the Conversion Shares may be offered from time to time for the accounts of the securityholders named herein (the "Selling Securityholders"). The Convertible Notes and Conversion Shares issuable upon conversion thereof were issued in a private placement by the Company to certain institutional investors and non-U.S. Investors in February and March of 1997. The Prospectus Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Prospectus, and this Prospectus Supplement is qualified by reference to the Prospectus except to the extent that the information herein contained supersedes the information contained in the Prospectus. Capitalized terms used in this Prospectus Summary and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings specified in the Prospectus.


The following table sets forth information, with respect to the Selling Securityholders and the respective principal amount of Convertible Notes beneficially owned by each such Selling Securityholder that may be sold, and the number of Conversion Shares that may be sold, by the Selling Securityholders pursuant to this Prospectus. Other than as set forth below, none of the Selling Securityholders has, or within the past three (3) years has had, any position, office or other material relationship with the Company or any of its predecessors or affiliates. Because the Selling Securityholders may offer all or a portion of the Convertible Notes and the Conversion Shares pursuant to this Prospectus, no estimate can be given as to the amount of Convertible Notes or the Conversion Shares that will be held by the Selling Securityholders upon termination of any such sale. The following table is based upon information furnished to the Company by the Depository Trust Company, New York, New York and the Selling Securityholders:
