Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On May 5, 2006, Cohu, Inc., ("Cohu"), completed the sale of the land and building previously used by its Delta Design subsidiary’s operations in Littleton, Massachusetts to FPK Realty, LLC, ("FPK"). The majority of these operations were consolidated into Delta Design’s facility in Poway, California in 2003 and 2004. The property was sold for $6.5 million in cash, less related costs, resulting in a net pretax gain of approximately $3.0 million, that will be recorded in Cohu’s second fiscal quarter of 2006. In conjunction with the sale, Cohu entered into a twelve-month leaseback agreement with FPK for a portion of the facility. Total lease payments to be made under the lease are approximately $150,000.
