Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On December 9, 2013, David D. Glass, Veeco's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, elected to retire from Veeco. Veeco has retained a search firm to assist in recruiting a new CFO. To facilitate a smooth transition, Mr. Glass will continue in his current role, for up to six months, until a successor is named. In exchange for agreeing to stay for up to six months, Mr. Glass will be credited with service for equity vesting purposes through June 9, 2014, even if the service period ends sooner, and he will be eligible to receive the separation benefits described in the letter agreement between him and Veeco dated December 17, 2009.
