On August 25, 2009, Vincent J. Coates resigned as a director of Nanometrics Incorporated, effective immediately. Mr. Coates’ resignation was for personal reasons and not as a result of any disagreements relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

On August 25, 2009, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) appointed Norman Coates, the son of Vincent J. Coates, as a director of the Company to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Vincent J. Coates. A copy of the press release announcing Norman Coates’ appointment to the Board is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

As a non-employee director, Norman Coates’ compensation for his services as director will be consistent with that of the Company’s other non-employee directors. Norman Coates will receive an annual retainer fee of $20,000 plus $1,500 for each on site board meeting and $500 for each telephonic board meeting lasting more than 30 minutes. Norman Coates also will receive 20,000 options in connection with his appointment to the Board, and 2,500 stock options on the second business day of each quarter thereafter, which options are subject to certain service and vesting requirements. He also will receive an award of 2,000 restricted stock units on the first business day of each year, which units are subject to certain service and vesting requirements. There are no other arrangements or understandings between Norman Coates and any other person pursuant to which Norman Coates was appointed as a director of the Company.

Since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year, the Company and its subsidiaries have not engaged in any transactions, and there are no proposed transactions, or series of similar transactions, in which Norman Coates had a direct or indirect material interest in which the amount involved exceeds $120,000.
