(d) Appointment of New Director
On May 5, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Cohu, Inc. (“Cohu”) appointed Yon Yoon Jorden to join the Board as a Class 2 director whose term will expire at Cohu’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders. Ms. Jorden has also been appointed to the Audit Committee. Such appointments are effective as of May 10, 2021. There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Jorden and Cohu or any other person pursuant to which she was selected as a director.
Ms. Jorden will be compensated in accordance with Cohu’s current director compensation program, including an annual retainer of $60,000; annual fee as Audit Committee member of $10,000; and an initial equity grant of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) with a total value of $150,000, but the total value of such grant pro-rated based on the period of time between appointment as director and the next scheduled director annual equity grant date, and such grant to vest over three years. In addition, Ms. Jorden will be eligible for the regular directors’ annual equity grant of RSUs, expected in May 2022, with a total value of $150,000, and such annual grant would thereafter vest in approximately one year.
Ms. Jorden was provided, and is expected to sign, Cohu’s standard form of indemnification agreement for directors, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to Cohu’s Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 13, 2018.
