Total cash and investments at year-end were $165.0 million.

Luis Müller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cohu, stated, “Cohu delivered growth year-over-year, and annual sales of $451.8 million set a new record. There were numerous design-wins in the fourth quarter, including the capture of three new customers for tri-temperature pick-and-place handlers, the qualification of our turret inspection platform for a new automotive application, and initial orders from multiple customers for xWave contactors for testing 5G antenna modules, power amplifiers, transceivers and automotive radar.”

Müller continued, “We have accelerated the integration of Xcerra, announced plans to consolidate facilities and end manufacturing of certain test handlers, and expect to deliver the initial $20 million annual run-rate cost synergies within the first-year post-acquisition and achieve our goal of $40 million within three to five years.”

Cohu expects first quarter 2019 sales to be approximately $145 million, reflecting soft industry conditions.

The three- and twelve-month periods ended December 29, 2018 and December 30, 2017 were both comprised of 13 weeks and 52 weeks, respectively. The Company’s results for the three months ended December 29, 2018, include the results of Xcerra which was acquired on October 1, 2018 and results for the twelve months, include Cohu’s results for the twelve months ended December 29, 2018 and the results of Xcerra for only the three months ended December 29, 2018.

  (2) Cost of sales for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 29, 2018 includes charges totaling $19.1 million related to restructuring activities and the decision to end manufacturing of certain of Xcerra’s semiconductor test handler products.   (3) In conjunction with the acquisition of Xcerra the Company assessed the need to realign its historical financial statement presentation and certain statement of operations classifications were reclassified to conform to current period presentation. The changes made were as follows:  

  Amortization of intangibles previously were presented in cost of sales and SG&A. These amounts are now presented as a separate line item “Amortization of purchased intangible assets” within operating expenses. Amounts associated with purchased intangible assets that previously would have been included in cost of sales are $11.6 million and $13.6 million for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 29, 2018, respectively. Amounts previously presented in cost of sales that have been reclassified to conform with the Company’s revised presentation for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 30, 2017 are $0.7 million and $2.7 million, respectively.  

Historically, gains and losses associated with foreign currency translation and remeasurement were included within SG&A which resulted in fluctuations in expenses as foreign exchange rates change. These amounts will now be presented within foreign transaction gain (loss) and other as it will provide investors more insight into the Company’s operating expenses.   (4) SG&A expense for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 29, 2018 include Xcerra transaction costs totaling $4.6 million and $9.8 million, respectively.   (5) On October 1, 2018, the Company made the decision to sell the fixtures business acquired from Xcerra, and, as a result, the operating results of the fixtures business have been presented as discontinued operations. All amounts presented in 2017 result from an adjustment to the fair value of a contingent consideration receivable recorded in conjunction with the sale of BMS in 2015.   (6)

For the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 29, 2018, potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the per share computations due to their antidilutive effect. The Company has utilized the "control number" concept in the computation of diluted earnings per share to determine whether a potential common stock instrument is dilutive. The control number used is income from continuing operations. The control number concept requires that the same number of potentially dilutive securities applied in computing diluted earnings per share from continuing operations be applied to all other categories of income or loss, regardless of their anti-dilutive effect on such categories.

Management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods and these non-GAAP measures allow investors to evaluate the Company’s financial performance using some of the same measures as management. Management views share-based compensation as an expense that is unrelated to the Company’s operational performance as it does not require cash payments and can vary in amount from period to period and the elimination of amortization charges provides better comparability of pre and post-acquisition operating results and to results of businesses utilizing internally developed intangible assets. Management initiated certain restructuring activities including employee headcount reductions and other organizational changes to align our business strategies in anticipation of the completion of the merger with Xcerra. Restructuring costs have been excluded because such expense is not used by Management to assess the core profitability of Cohu’s business operations. Manufacturing transition costs relate principally to employee severance expenses incurred as a result of moving certain manufacturing activities to Asia as part of our ongoing cost reduction efforts and employee severance are costs incurred in conjunction with the termination of certain employees to streamline our operations and reduce costs. Management has excluded these costs primarily because they are not reflective of the ongoing operating results and they are not used to assess ongoing operational performance. Acquisition costs, fair value adjustment to contingent consideration, adjustments for inventory step-up costs have been excluded by management as they are unrelated to the core operating activities of the Company and the frequency and variability in the nature of the charges can vary significantly from period to period. Management believes the reduction of an uncertain tax position liability and related indemnification receivable is better reflected within income tax expense rather than a charge to SG&A and credit to the income tax provision. Excluding this data provides investors with a basis to compare Cohu’s performance against the performance of other companies without this variability. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be regarded as a replacement for (or superior to) corresponding, similarly captioned, GAAP measures. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures above may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies and investors should be careful when comparing our non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies.     (a)   -34.7%, 8.2% and 5.9% of net sales, respectively.

(l) To adjust the provision for income taxes related to the adjustments described above based on applicable tax rates. (m) To eliminate impact of the adoption of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted on December 22, 2017 (U.S. Tax Reform), and includes provisional estimates of (i) the one-time transition tax, net of foreign tax credits and operating losses, on earnings of foreign subsidiaries that were previously deferred from U.S. tax; (ii) the impact of U.S. tax rate reduction and changes to net operating loss rules on our net deferred taxes and (iii) the accrual of foreign taxes in the event certain funds are repatriated to the U.S. (n) The three months ended December 29, 2018 was computed using 41,241 shares outstanding as the effect of dilutive securities was excluded from GAAP diluted common shares due to the reported net loss under GAAP, but are included for non-GAAP diluted common shares since the Company has non-GAAP net income.
