Item 1.01 – Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On September 14, 2005, Nanometrics Incorporated (the “Company”) agreed to provide an annual salary and certain other benefits to Mr. Douglas J. McCutcheon in connection with his service to the Company as its new Executive Vice President, Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer. A description of the agreement is set forth in Item 5.02 below and is incorporated by reference herein.

 

On the same date, Paul B. Nolan resigned as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company. In connection with Mr. Nolan’s departure, the Company agreed to make a lump sum severance payment to Mr. Nolan of approximately $48,000 (less standard deductions required by law).

 

Item 5.02 – Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

 

Effective September 14, 2005, Douglas J. McCutcheon, 57, became Executive Vice President, Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer of the Company. On the same date, Paul B. Nolan resigned as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

 

Previously, Mr. McCutcheon served from 2003 to 2004 as Managing Director, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Metron Technology N.V., a provider to the semiconductor industry. From 1996 to 2001, he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Asyst Technologies, Inc., a provider of automation solutions. Mr. McCutcheon has also held executive positions with Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Diasonics, Inc., and Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.

 

Nanometrics has agreed to pay Mr. McCutcheon an annual base salary of $285,000. Mr. McCutcheon will also receive a hiring bonus of $25,000 which, should he leave the Company within one year, he will be required to repay on a prorated basis. Mr. McCutcheon was also granted options to purchase 150,000 shares of Nanometrics common stock; the options will terminate seven years from the date of grant, become exercisable in three equal annual installments beginning on September 14, 2006, and will have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, $12.03. Furthermore, the Company has agreed to pay Mr. McCutcheon twelve months of continued salary at his then-effective annual rate if the Company terminates him for any reason other than for good cause, provided that Mr. McCutcheon executes a general release. Termination for good cause, as used in the foregoing sentence, shall only occur if Mr. McCutcheon commits misconduct, unjustifiably neglects his duties, or acts in a way that has a direct, substantial and adverse effect on the Company or its reputation. Mr. McCutcheon will be eligible to participate in the Company’s standard benefit programs, including its standard bonus plan.

 

A copy of the press release announcing the appointment of Mr. McCutcheon is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
