FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 10-Q Quarterly Report regarding our financial performance, condition and operations, and the business strategy, plans, anticipated sales, orders, market acceptance, growth rates, market opportunities, and objectives of management of the Company for future operations are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are intended to provide management’s current expectations or plans for the future operating and financial performance of the Company based upon information currently available and assumptions currently believed to be valid. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plans,” “strategy,” “project,” and other words of similar meaning in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors. Among the important factors that could cause actual events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are fluctuations in capital spending of our customers; fluctuations in net sales to our major customer; manufacturing and supplier risks; risks of order cancellations, push-outs and de-bookings; dependence on timing and market acceptance of new product development; rapid technological and market change; risks in international operations; risks related to the reorganization of our business; dependence on proprietary technology and key personnel; length of the sales cycle; environmental regulations; investment portfolio returns; fluctuations in our stock price; the risk that anticipated growth opportunities may be smaller than anticipated or may not be realized; and the risk related to the Company’s transition to new senior management.

Any forward-looking statements included in this Quarterly Report speak only as of the date of this document. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this Form 10-Q. Further information on potential factors that could affect our business is described in this Form 10-Q and in our reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Form 10-K, as amended, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars in thousands, except for per share amounts)

Note 1: Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

Zygo Corporation is a worldwide supplier of optical metrology instruments, precision optics, and electro-optical design and manufacturing services, serving customers in the semiconductor capital equipment and industrial markets. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Zygo Corporation and its subsidiaries (“ZYGO,” “we,” “us,” “our” or “the Company”). The Company follows accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”). ZYGO’s reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. The functional currency of the majority of our foreign subsidiaries is their local currency and, as such, amounts included in the consolidated statements of operations are translated at the weighted-average exchange rates for the period. Assets and liabilities are translated at period-end exchange rates and resulting foreign exchange translation adjustments are recorded in the consolidated balance sheets as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). All transactions and accounts with the subsidiaries have been eliminated from the condensed consolidated financial statements. The results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at September 30, 2009, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 are unaudited but, in management’s opinion, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the interim periods. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended June 30, 2009, including items incorporated by reference therein.

Discontinued Operations

The Company classifies operations as discontinued when the operations have either ceased, or are expected to be disposed of in a sale transaction in the near term, and the operations and cash flows of all discontinued operations have been eliminated or will be eliminated upon consummation of the expected sale transaction, and the Company will not have any significant continuing involvement in the discontinued operations. Authoritative guidance related to the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets requires the calculation of estimated fair value less cost to sell of long-lived assets for assets held for sale. The calculation of estimated fair value less cost to sell includes significant estimates and assumptions, including, but not limited to: operating projections; excess working capital levels; property values; and the anticipated costs involved in the selling process.

As more fully described in Note 2, “Discontinued Operations”, we have discontinued the Singapore IC packaging operations of our Vision Systems product line, which is included in our Metrology Solutions segment.

Reclassification

Certain amounts have been reclassified to conform with current-year presentations related to discontinued operations and non-controlling interests.

Subsequent Events

We evaluated events occurring between the end of our fiscal quarter, September 30, 2009, and November 9, 2009 when the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued.

Adoption of New Accounting Pronouncements

On July 1, 2009, we adopted authoritative guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) on changes to the accounting and reporting of non-controlling interests. This guidance requires that ownership interests in subsidiaries held by parties other than the parent be clearly identified, labeled, and presented in the consolidated balance sheets within equity, but separate from the parent’s equity. Furthermore, the amount of consolidated net income (loss) attributable to the parent and to the non-controlling interest must be clearly identified and presented on the face of the consolidated statement of operations. The new guidance is reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

On July 1, 2009, we adopted authoritative guidance issued by the FASB on business combinations. The guidance provides specific guidance on how the acquirer recognizes and measures in its financial statements the identifiable assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, any non-controlling interest in the acquirer, and goodwill acquired or any bargain purchase gains. The adoption of the new guidance did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

7


Recent Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted

In October 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on revenue recognition that will become effective for us beginning on July 1, 2010, with earlier adoption permitted. Under the new guidance on arrangements that include software elements, tangible products that have software components that are essential to the functionality of the tangible product will no longer be within the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance, and software-enabled products will now be subject to other relevant revenue recognition guidance. Additionally, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on revenue arrangements with multiple deliverables that are outside the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance. Under the new guidance, when vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence for deliverables in an arrangement cannot be determined, a best estimate of the selling price is required to separate deliverables and allocate arrangement consideration using the relative selling price method. The new guidance includes new disclosure requirements on how the application of the relative selling price method affects the timing and amount of revenue recognition. We believe adoption of this new guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements.

In June 2009, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on the consolidation of variable interest entities, which is effective for us beginning on July 1, 2010. The new guidance requires revised evaluations of whether entities represent variable interest entities, ongoing assessments of power over such entities, and additional disclosures for variable interests. We believe adoption of this new guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements.

Note 2: Discontinued Operations

We discontinued the Singapore IC packaging operations of our Vision Systems product line, included in our Metrology Solutions segment. During the quarter ended September 30, 2009, the company determined that it would sell or otherwise close down such operations. As of September 30, 2009, operations have substantially ceased at this location. In accordance with authoritative guidance, the results of operations for the aforementioned operations are presented in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as discontinued operations. In addition, adjustments are made to the carrying value of assets held for sale if the carrying value exceeds their estimated fair value less cost to sell.

The following table summarizes the operating results of our discontinued operations for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008:

Note 3: Restructuring and related costs

During fiscal 2009, we initiated restructuring actions related to ongoing cost reduction efforts comprised of workforce reductions and the consolidation of manufacturing operations in Tucson, Arizona. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, we recorded additional severance charges. During this same period, restructuring and related charges totaled $84, of which $71 was included in research, development, and engineering and $13 was included in selling, general, and administration.

Note 5. Fair Value Measurements

Authoritative guidance related to fair value measurements and disclosures establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels. Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs are quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs based on the management’s assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value. A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table provides the assets and liabilities carried at fair value measured on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2009 and 2008:

When available, the Company uses quoted market prices to determine the fair value of its marketable securities included in Level 1. When quoted market prices are unobservable, the Company uses quotes from independent pricing vendors based on recent trading activity and other relevant information. The carrying value of other financial instruments, including cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short maturities.

Note 6: Share-Based Payments

We recorded share-based compensation expense for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 of $674 and $1,022, respectively, with a related tax benefit of $243 and $368, respectively. Of these amounts, $7 and $9 were recorded as part of discontinued operations for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008.

Stock Options

We utilized the Black-Scholes valuation method to determine the weighted average fair value of the stock option grants for both fiscal 2010 and 2009 stock option valuations. The key assumptions for this valuation method include the expected term of the option, stock price volatility, risk-free interest rate, dividend yield, exercise price, and forfeiture rate. Many of these assumptions are judgmental and highly sensitive in the determination of compensation expense. Under the assumptions indicated below, the weighted-average fair value of stock option grants for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were $3.67 and $4.43, respectively. During the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, we issued an aggregate of 140,000 and 137,000 options, respectively.

The table below indicates the key assumptions used in the option valuation calculations for options granted in the periods presented and a discussion of our methodology for developing each of the assumptions used in the valuation model:

Term – This is generally the period of time over which the options granted are expected to remain outstanding. Options granted have a maximum term of ten years. An increase in the expected term will increase compensation expense.

Volatility – This is a measure of the amount by which a price has fluctuated or is expected to fluctuate. Volatilities are based on implied volatilities from traded options of ZYGO’s shares, historical volatility of ZYGO’s shares, and other factors, such as expected changes in volatility arising from planned changes in ZYGO’s business operations. An increase in the expected volatility will increase compensation expense.

Dividend Yield – We did not make any dividend payments during the last five fiscal years and we have no plans to pay dividends in the foreseeable future. An increase in the dividend yield will decrease compensation expense.

Risk-Free Interest Rate – This is the U.S. Treasury rate for the week of the grant having a term equal to the expected term of the option. An increase in the risk-free interest rate will increase compensation expense.

Forfeiture Rate – This is the estimated percentage of options granted that are expected to be forfeited or canceled before becoming fully vested. An increase in the forfeiture rate will decrease compensation expense.

Restricted Stock

Our share-based compensation expense also includes the effects of the issuance of restricted stock and restricted stock units. The compensation expense related to restricted stock awards is determined based on the market price of our stock at the date of grant applied to the total number of shares that are anticipated to fully vest, which is then amortized over the expected term. During the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, an aggregate of 268,000 and 156,700 shares of restricted stock units were issued at a weighted average grant price of $5.38 and $10.68, respectively. Generally, the restrictions on the restricted stock and restricted stock units granted to employees lapse at a rate of 50% after three years and the remaining 50% after the fourth year.

Note 10: Intangible Assets

Intangible assets include patents, trademarks, customer relationships and technology, and a covenant not-to-compete. The cost of patents, trademarks, customer relationships and technology is amortized on a straight-line basis over estimated useful lives ranging from 5-17 years. We entered into a non-compete agreement with a former officer and director of the Company effective February 28, 2009. The agreement calls for payments over a four year period of declining amounts totaling $878, which includes $27 of imputed interest. As of September 30, 2009, current liabilities include $181 and long-term liabilities include $229 related to the payments under this agreement. We are amortizing the value of the non-compete over four years on a declining balance method.

Intangible assets, at cost, at September 30, 2009 and June 30, 2009 were as follows:

Note 11: Warranty

A limited warranty is provided on our products for periods ranging from 3 to 24 months and allowances for estimated warranty costs are recorded during the period of sale. The determination of such allowances requires management to make estimates of product return rates and expected costs to repair or replace products under warranty. If actual return rates or repair and replacement costs, or both, differ significantly from management’s estimates, adjustments to the expense will be required.

Note 13: Transactions with Stockholder

Sales to Canon Inc., a stockholder, and Canon Sales Co., Inc., a distributor of certain of our products in Japan and a subsidiary of Canon Inc. (collectively referred to as “Canon”), amounted to $989 and $7,207 (5% and 19% of net sales, respectively) for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Selling prices of products sold to Canon are based, generally, on the terms customarily given to distributors. At September 30, 2009 and June 30, 2009, there were, in the aggregate, $258 and $592, respectively, of trade accounts receivable from Canon.

Note 14: Derivatives and Hedging Activities

We enter into foreign currency forward contracts to reduce the impact of adverse fluctuations on earnings associated with foreign currency exchange rate changes. We do not enter into any derivative transactions for speculative purposes. These contracts are not designated as cash flow, fair value, or net investment hedges under authoritative guidance on accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities and, therefore, are marked-to-market with changes in fair value recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations. These contracts are entered into for periods consistent with the expected currency transaction exposures, generally three to six months. Any gains and losses on the fair value of these contracts are expected to substantially offset corresponding losses and gains on the underlying transactions.

As of September 30, 2009, we had six currency contracts outstanding involving our Japanese and German operations with notional amounts aggregating $2,470. These foreign currency hedges are not considered designated hedging instruments. For the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, we recognized net unrealized losses of $147 and $36, respectively, from foreign currency forward contracts. These unrealized losses are substantially offset by foreign exchange gains on intercompany balances recorded by our subsidiary and are recorded in Miscellaneous income (expense) on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2009 included income taxes in state and foreign jurisdictions. We recorded no net deferred tax benefit for the operating loss incurred in this period, creating the situation where we have income tax expense in a loss period. We continue to maintain a valuation allowance on all of our net deferred tax assets totaling $41,175 at September 30, 2009. In future periods, the valuation allowance could be reduced based upon sufficient evidence indicating that it is more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets will be realized.

We previously adopted the authoritative guidance for accounting for uncertainty in income taxes. Due to our net operating loss carry-forwards, we have accrued no interest and penalties for the unrecognized tax benefits; however, our accounting policy is to recognize interest related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense. Penalties, if incurred, would be recognized as a component of income tax expense. In the normal course of business, we provide for uncertain tax positions and adjust our unrecognized tax benefits accordingly. For the quarter ended September 30, 2009, we did not recognize an additional liability or realize any benefit for uncertain tax positions. The total liability for uncertain tax liabilities was $1,825 at September 30, 2009 and June 30, 2009. We are not aware of any tax positions that would create a material adjustment to the unrecognized tax benefits during the next twelve months.

We are subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income tax in multiple state and foreign jurisdictions. Because of our significant NOL and credit carry-forwards, we remain subject to U.S. federal income tax audit adjustments for years after June 30, 2001. We are no longer subject to state and foreign income tax audit or tax adjustments for years prior to June 30, 2005. We are currently under an income tax audit by the IRS for domestic taxes for the period ended June 30, 2007.

Note 16: Commitments and Contingencies

We are aware of certain levels of contamination on our property which are below reportable levels. In addition, we are aware of certain contamination on an adjacent property that we formerly owned. The future effect of environmental matters, including potential liabilities, is often difficult to estimate. Presently, we are unable to determine or reasonably estimate the amount of costs, if any, that we might incur or for which we may potentially be responsible. We will record an environmental reserve when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of any liability can be reasonably estimated, whether a claim has been asserted or unasserted.

Note 17: Subsequent Events

On October 5, 2009, we announced a strategic business relationship with Toho Technology Corporation (“Toho”), pursuant to which Toho will have the exclusive right to certain technology in the manufacturing and distribution of products to the large substrate Flat Panel Display (“FPD”) market. As part of this strategic relationship, we will be selling sensor heads to Toho, to be incorporated into the FPD systems they sell. The agreement with Toho also provides for a royalty payment to the Company on 5% of the sales price of each FPD system sold by Toho during the first five years of the agreement.

On October 21, 2009, we announced that our Chief Executive Officer, J. Bruce Robinson, 67, will be retiring after leading the Company for over ten years. Mr. Robinson will transition from his current role as CEO and director into a non-director consulting position for us. The transition is expected to occur during the second half of our current fiscal year. The Board of Directors identified a number of strategic initiatives for Mr. Robinson to be involved with during his transition, and the Company entered into an Agreement with Mr. Robinson that includes payments for the successful achievement of these initiatives. Incentive payments under the Agreement could aggregate up to $300, with an additional $106 of consulting payments during each of the four years of the consultancy.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

OVERVIEW

Zygo Corporation is a worldwide supplier of optical metrology instruments, precision optics, and electro-optical design and manufacturing services, serving customers in the semiconductor capital equipment and industrial markets. We conduct the majority of our manufacturing in our 153,500 square foot facility in Middlefield, Connecticut and our 39,780 square foot facility in Tucson, Arizona.

Orders for the three months ended September 30, 2009 (our first quarter of fiscal 2010) were $22.7 million, as compared with $14.8 million and $28.8 million for the fourth quarter and first quarter, respectively, of fiscal 2009. Orders for our Metrology Solutions segment accounted for 68% of the orders received, with the Optical Systems segment accounting for 32% of orders. The increase in orders from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 is due to increases in the Metrology Solutions segment of $5.1 million and of $2.8 million in the Optical Systems segment. The increase in Metrology Solutions segment orders was primarily for our instruments products and extended over a number of different industries. The $6.1 million decline in orders from the same period of the prior year occurred primarily in the Metrology Solutions segment, which experienced reduced orders across all product lines except for Vision Systems, which increased by $1.4 million. Within the Optics Systems segment, orders increased by $1.2 million compared with the three months ended September 30, 2008, primarily due to an increase in orders of laser fusion optics of $2.0 million and contract manufacturing of $0.8 million, partially offset by a declines in orders in precision optics of $1.6 million. Our Metrology Solutions segment now includes an OEM product category, which consists of lithography products, display sensor heads, and semiconductor sensor heads. Our Optical Systems segment continues to include our optical components and electro-optics contract manufacturing products.

In October 2009, we announced a strategic business relationship with Toho Technology Corporation (“Toho”) of Nagoya, Japan, pursuant to which Toho will have the exclusive right to certain technology in the manufacturing and distribution of products to the large substrate Flat Panel Display (“FPD”) market. Leveraging Toho’s strength in manufacturing and design, proximity to the Asian market, and significant presence in the FPD market, allows us to accelerate the deployment of our technology and sale of sensor heads, while enhancing customer application and service support.

In September 2009, we discontinued the Singapore IC packaging operations related to our Vision Systems business due to continuing operating losses and net cash outflows. The results of operations for the aforementioned operations are presented in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as discontinued operations.

In response to the decline in sales and orders, we have taken and continue to take various actions to mitigate the effects on our company of the downturn in the global economy, including reductions in work force, pay reductions, unpaid furloughs, suspension of our matching 401-K program, and a reduction in director fees. Further restructuring actions and related charges continue to be reviewed, as appropriate.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES, SIGNIFICANT JUDGMENTS, AND ESTIMATES

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, and related disclosures at the date of our condensed consolidated financial statements. On an on-going basis, management evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to bad debts, inventories, marketable securities, warranty obligations, income taxes, long-lived assets, and share-based payments. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and current market conditions and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. As discussed in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, as amended, management considers the Company’s policies on revenue recognition and allowance for doubtful accounts; inventory valuation; other than temporary impairment of marketable securities; share-based compensation; warranty costs; accounting for income taxes; valuation of long-lived assets; and accruals for health insurance to be critical accounting policies due to the estimates, assumptions, and application of judgment involved in each.

On July 1, 2009, we adopted authoritative guidance that changes the accounting and reporting for minority interests. Minority interests have been recharacterized as non-controlling interests and are reported as a component of equity separate from the parent’s equity. Purchases or sales of equity interests that do not result in a change in control will be accounted for as equity transactions. In addition, net income attributable to the non-controlling interest will be included in consolidated net income on the face of the condensed consolidated statements of operations, and upon a loss of control, the interest sold, as well as any interest retained, will be recorded at fair value with any gain or loss recognized in earnings. We have classified non-controlling interest (previously minority interest) as a component of equity for all periods presented. The new guidance is reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

Overall, net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2009 decreased 43% as compared with the prior year period, reflecting decreases in Metrology Solutions segment sales of 40% and in Optical Systems segment sales of 50%. The decrease in Metrology Solutions segment net sales was primarily due to volume decreases in lithography of $4.6 million, instruments of $4.0 million, and display solutions of $3.9 million, partially offset by sales increases in semiconductor solutions of $1.2 million and vision systems of $0.4 million. These volume decreases, in large measure, are due to a reduction in orders that appears to be tied directly to the general global economic downturn, most notably in the semiconductor industry. A decrease in orders from Canon accounted for the majority of the decrease in lithography sales. The decrease in the Optical Systems segment sales was primarily due to decreases in contract manufacturing and precision optics of $3.9 million and $1.3 million, respectively. The decrease in contract manufacturing sales is primarily related to reductions in shipments to multiple customers based on their respective inventory needs.

Sales in U.S. dollars for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were approximately 67% and 77% of total net sales, respectively, with the remaining 33% and 23%, respectively, being in Euro or Yen. For our sales which are based in foreign currency, we are exposed to foreign exchange fluctuations from the time customers are invoiced in foreign currency until collection occurs. Significant changes in the values of foreign currencies relative to the value of the U.S. dollar, or in the general economic conditions in our export markets, could materially impact the sales of our products in these markets and our Condensed Consolidated Financial Position and Results of Operations.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2009 was 34%, which represents a decrease of ten percentage points from the comparable prior year period. Within the Metrology Solutions segment, the slight decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2009 as compared with the prior year period was primarily due to unabsorbed factory costs due to lower net sales. Within the Optical Systems segment, the decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2009 as compared with the prior year period was primarily due to unabsorbed costs due to lower net sales and production issues related to certain optics resulting in increased manufacturing costs and delayed shipments. Production issues were substantially resolved during the quarter. During the first quarter of fiscal 2010, we continued to take actions to reduce costs in both segments in light of the decline in orders, including pay reductions and unpaid furloughs.

Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2009 included income taxes in state and foreign jurisdictions, which could not be offset by current and prior net operating losses. We continue to maintain a valuation allowance on all of our net deferred tax assets totaling $41.2 million at September 30, 2009. In future periods, the valuation allowance could be reduced based upon sufficient evidence indicating that it is more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets will be realized.

TRANSACTIONS WITH STOCKHOLDER

Sales to Canon Inc., a stockholder, and Canon Sales Co., Inc., a distributor of certain of our products in Japan and a subsidiary of Canon Inc. (collectively referred to as “Canon”), amounted to $1.0 million and $7.2 million (5% and 19% of net sales, respectively) for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively. Selling prices of products sold to Canon are based, generally, on the terms customarily given to distributors. At September 30, 2009 and June 30, 2009, there were, in the aggregate, $0.2 million and $0.6 million, respectively, of trade accounts receivable from Canon.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

We assess our liquidity in terms of our ability to generate cash to fund our operating, investing, and financing activities. Our principal source of liquidity is operating cash flows. In addition to operating cash flows, other significant factors that affect our overall management of liquidity include: capital expenditures, customer credit requirements, investments in businesses, expenses related to our partnerships and leadership transition, and the adequacy of available bank lines of credit.

The distress in the financial markets has led to severely diminished liquidity and credit availability, rating downgrades and declining valuations of certain investments, and extreme volatility in security prices. We have assessed the implications the distress in the financial markets has on our current business and determined that there has not been a significant impact to our financial position, results of operations, or liquidity during the first three months of fiscal 2010, other than the indirect effect that the current uncertainty in global economic conditions resulting from the recent disruption in credit markets has had on customer demand for our products.

We currently have no debt or lines of credit. In the future, if the need for debt or credit lines arose there is no assurance that we would be able to secure such financing due to the lack of credit availability in the financial markets or our own financial position.

At September 30, 2009, cash and marketable securities were $38.7 million, an increase of $2.0 million from $36.7 million at June 30, 2009. Our marketable securities consist of corporate bonds ($2.0 million), a government security ($1.0 million), and a mutual fund of $0.6 million. One additional investment in an auction rate security is valued at zero. We believe there are no additional impairments in our investments for the three months ended September 30, 2009.

We hold two corporate bonds, one invested in the financial services sector and one in the retail sector. The individual bonds have a value at maturity of $1.0 million each. We have the ability and intent to hold all the securities to maturity, the last maturity of which is on December 1, 2009.

The cash equivalents balance in our money market account, which is invested primarily in U.S. government securities, is $18.0 million as of September 30, 2009. We do not believe there is any risk to liquidity in the money market account, nor are there currently any limits on redemptions.

We have $5.3 million of gross accounts receivable related to our display customers which are overdue. Of this amount, $1.7 million has been reserved for. We have agreed to payment terms with several display customers and are in negotiations with other customers. Although we believe such amounts are collectible, our liquidity will be affected by the timing of the receipt of such payments. We have not experienced significant delays in payments from non-display customers.

We believe we have sufficient operating flexibility and cash reserves to maintain adequate amounts of liquidity and to meet our future liquidity requirements for at least the next twelve months. The impact of continued market volatility, however, cannot be predicted.

Cash flows from operating activities from continuing operations for the first three months of fiscal 2010 decreased by $1.8 million as compared with the prior year period. This was primarily due to a negative change in net income from continuing operations of $4.8 million, offset by the positive change in inventory related cash flows of $5.7 million. The change in inventory related cash flows is primarily a result of decreasing inventory levels in the three months ended September 30, 2009 as we continue to manage inventory levels down to our current order rate

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

We have not created, and are not party to, any special-purpose or off-balance sheet entities for the purpose of raising capital, incurring debt, or operating parts of our business that are not consolidated into our financial statements. We have not guaranteed any obligations of a third party.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

There have been no material changes that have occurred in our quantitative and qualitative market risk disclosures during the three months ended September 30, 2009 except for the ongoing economic uncertainty which is impacting us through decreased orders and order push-outs by some of our customers. Our exposure to market risk is presented in Item 7a., “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk,” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended June 30, 2009, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “2009 Annual Report”).

Current uncertainty in global economic conditions resulting from among other things, the recent disruptions in credit and financial markets, poses a risk to the overall economy that could impact customer demand for our products, impact our ability to manage relationships with our customers, suppliers and creditors, or cause supplier or customer disruptions resulting from tighter credit markets, among other risks.

22


Item 4. Controls and Procedures

The effectiveness of our or any system of disclosure controls and procedures is subject to certain limitations, including the exercise of judgment in designing, implementing, and evaluating the controls and procedures, the assumptions used in identifying the likelihood of future events, and the inability to eliminate misconduct completely. In designing, implementing, and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives and our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, carried out an evaluation, as of the end of the period covered by this report of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based upon their evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of such period, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective in recording, processing, summarizing and reporting on a timely basis information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act and were effective in ensuring that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred in our most recent fiscal quarter that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - Other Information

Item 1A. Risk Factors

In addition to the information set forth below and elsewhere in this report, the reader should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our 2009 Annual Report, which could materially affect our business, financial condition, or future results. The risks described in our 2009 Annual Report are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, and/or operating results.

Reorganization activities could adversely affect our ability to execute our business strategy.

We have been in the process of reorganizing our business structure due to worldwide market conditions or other factors that have reduced the demand for our products and services. The reorganization includes the discontinuation of our Singapore IC packaging operations and other personnel cost reductions. As a result of these and other initiatives, our ability to execute our business strategy going forward could be adversely affected in a number of ways, including the loss of key employees; diversion of management’s attention from normal daily operations of the business; diminished ability to respond to customer requirements, both as to products and services; loss of reputation with our customers if we exit a business line; increased difficulty in maintaining existing orders and collecting accounts receivable; and disruption of our engineering and manufacturing processes. Depending on market conditions, we may implement additional restructuring initiatives in future periods.

We are in the process of a significant management change which may impact our ability to execute our business strategy in the near term.

In October 2009, our Chief Executive Officer announced his impending retirement and the Board of Directors initiated a search for his successor. The market for senior managers who are qualified for the chief executive office of a public company is intensely competitive, and successful recruitment and development of executive talent is key to the Company’s competitive position. While our current Chief Executive Officer will remain with the Company during the search and transition period, our business may be disrupted during that time. As a result of the transition, the attention of senior management and the Board of Directors may be diverted from the Company’s business and current and potential customers may delay or forego commitments or decisions regarding orders for products and services Furthermore, if we are not able to attract and retain a qualified new Chief Executive Officer, our ability to execute our business strategy could be adversely affected.

Potential changes in U.S. Tax Law could materially affect our future results.

In May 2009, President Obama and the U.S. Treasury Department proposed changing certain of the U.S. tax rules for U.S. corporations doing business outside the United States. The proposed changes include limiting the ability of U.S. corporations to deduct expenses attributable to offshore earnings, modifying the foreign tax credit rules and further restricting the ability of U.S. corporations to transfer funds between foreign subsidiaries without triggering U.S. income tax. Although the scope of the proposed changes remains unclear and the likelihood of enactment is uncertain, it is possible that these or other changes in the U.S. tax laws could increase our effective tax rate and adversely affect our after-tax profitability.

(1)

In August 2007, our Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $25.0 million of our outstanding common stock. During the three months ended September 30, 2009, there were no repurchases of common stock in the open market. The share repurchases have been effected pursuant to plans in conformity with Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This rule allows public companies to adopt written, pre-arranged stock trading plans when they do not have material, non-public information in their possession. The adoption of this stock trading plan allows us to repurchase our shares during periods when we otherwise might be prevented from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods.

 

 

 

 

(2)

Shares were repurchased from certain of our employees in satisfaction of withholding tax obligations arising from the vesting of their restricted stock.
