Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On July 20, 2011, Cohu, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release regarding its financial results for the second quarter ended June 25, 2011. The Companys press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
The information in this Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the Exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
In addition to financial results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the earnings press release also contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. The Companys management uses these non-GAAP measures in their analysis of the Companys performance. These non-GAAP financial measures adjust the Companys actual results prepared under GAAP to exclude charges and the related income tax effect for share-based compensation, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and inventory step-up adjustments. These non-GAAP measures are not meant as a substitute for GAAP, but are included solely for informational and comparative purposes. The Companys management believes that this information can assist investors in evaluating the Companys operational trends, financial performance, and cash generating capacity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures allow investors to evaluate the Companys financial performance using some of the same measures as management. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.
