Item 5.03       Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

As discussed in greater detail below, Cohu, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on May 16, 2018 (the “Annual Meeting”). At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders approved amendments to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation in order to enable implementation of majority voting for uncontested director elections, and to make certain other administrative or immaterial revisions to remove outdated provisions that no longer have any effect, provisions that are duplicative of the operative provisions of Delaware law, and provisions that are redundant, as well as adding a severability provision. These revisions are discussed in greater detail in the definitive Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 3, 2018. The plurality voting provision that had existed in the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation had provided that the candidates receiving the highest number of votes of the shares entitled to be voted for them up to the number of directors to be elected by such shares shall be elected. Accordingly, on May 16, 2018, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation implementing the approved changes (the “Restated Certificate”), and the Restated Certificate was effective as of that date. This description of the Restated Certificate is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restated Certificate filed herewith as Exhibit 3.1.

 

In addition, the Board had previously approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Restated Bylaws”), to be effective upon the amendment of the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to implement majority voting for uncontested director elections, and to make certain other administrative or immaterial revisions. Under this majority voting standard, each vote is required to be counted “for” or “against” the director’s election. To be elected, votes cast “for” a nominee’s election must exceed the votes cast “against” the nominee’s election. Stockholders will also be entitled to abstain with respect to the election of a director, but abstentions will have no effect on the outcome of a vote. In contested elections, directors will be elected by a plurality of the votes cast. This description of the Restated Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restated Bylaws filed herewith as Exhibit 3.2.
