On June 17, 2009, Nanometrics Incorporated (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its entry into a strategic business partnership with Zygo Corporation (“Zygo”), pursuant to which the Company purchased from Zygo certain assets under an Asset Transfer Agreement and entered into a Supply Agreement with Zygo. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this current report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Pursuant to the Asset Transfer Agreement, the Company purchased from Zygo certain inventory and equipment. The purchase price is payable to Zygo in periodic installments, which installments are calculated based upon sales by the Company of products that incorporate the purchased inventory and equipment; provided, that the Company is required to pay the total purchase price due to Zygo under the Asset Transfer Agreement on or before July 1, 2010. Zygo’s right to payment of the purchase price will be secured by a first priority lien on the purchased assets.

As a condition to the closing of the Asset Transfer Agreement the Company entered into the Supply Agreement, among other things.
