Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure


Item 1.01          Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report


Cohu, Inc. (“Cohu”, “we”, “our” and “us”) is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility.


Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform Act and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission‘s Final Regulation to Implement Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act both require reporting entities to exercise due diligence regarding the origin and chain of custody of the conflict minerals contained in their manufactured products. If the due diligence inquiry determines that the conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo or any of the covered adjoining countries the company is then obligated to determine whether the minerals financed or benefitted armed groups in these countries.


The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by our Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01 and is incorporated by reference. A copy of Cohu’s Conflict Minerals Report is also publicly available at: The content of any website referred to in this Form SD is included for general information only and is not incorporated by reference in this Form SD.


This Form SD and the exhibit attached hereto contain certain forward-looking statements relating to due diligence and compliance process improvements. Such forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and beliefs and are not a guarantee of future performance and are subject to a number of uncertainties and other factors, including primarily whether industry organizations and initiatives such as the Responsible Business Alliance (“RBA”) (formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition) and Responsible Minerals Initiative (formerly the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative) remain effective as a recognized source of external support in the conflict minerals compliance process and whether suppliers satisfy their obligations under those processes. Such risks and uncertainties may be outside of management’s control which could cause actual events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the statements made herein and we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements.
