On June 7, 2021, the Board appointed Jorge Titinger to serve as a director. Mr. Titinger will be a Class III member of the Board and will also serve on the Board’s Compensation Committee.
Mr. Titinger was President, Chief Executive Officer and director of Silicon Graphics, Inc. from February 2012 to November 2016. After Silicon Graphics, Inc. was acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, he founded Titinger Consulting, a firm focused on providing strategy, corporate transformation, and culture advice to its clients. Mr. Titinger also served as President, Chief Executive Officer and director of Verigy Ltd. in 2011 and held other senior executive roles from 2008 to 2011. Prior to Verigy, he held senior executive positions with FormFactor, Inc., KLA-Tencor Corporation and Applied Materials. Mr. Titinger served as a director of Xcerra Corporation from 2012 until it was acquired by Cohu in 2018 where he served as a director until May 2021.

As a member of the Board, Mr. Titinger will receive an annual retainer of $52,500, including a committee membership retainer for his service on the Compensation Committee, which will be prorated for 2021. Mr. Titinger will also receive a grant under the Company’s Equity Incentive Plan of 4,309 restricted stock units vesting in as of the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders. Mr. Titinger’s grant is representative of the Company’s policy for new director equity compensation, providing for initial grants based on $160,000 worth of shares of common stock as of the date of the grant prorated based on the number of days of service from the new director’s start date through the vesting date of the Company’s next annual meeting of stockholders.
