CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

 

 

Review, Approval or Ratification with Related Persons

Our Standards of Business Conduct require that all employees and Directors avoid conflicts of interests, including situations in which their personal interests interfere in any way, or appear to interfere, with the interests of KLA-Tencor.

In addition, pursuant to its written charter, the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors reviews all related party transactions between KLA-Tencor, our executive officers and Directors, beneficial owners of five percent or more of our securities, and all other related persons as specified under Item 404 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC for potential conflict of situations. The Audit Committee then approves (or disapproves) each related party transaction, to the extent required by applicable SEC and stock exchange rules. The Audit Committee has not adopted any specific written procedures for conducting such reviews and considers each transaction in light of the specific facts and circumstances presented.

The following transactions represent the transactions in which KLA-Tencor was a participant during fiscal year 2009, the amount involved exceeded $120,000, and any related person had a material direct or indirect interest (as determined, and as required to be reported, in accordance with SEC rules and regulations).
