Item 2.05.     
Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
On February 12, 2019, Aehr Test Systems (the “Company”) committed to a restructuring plan in order to streamline its operations and better align the Company’s structure with its objectives going forward. This restructuring plan includes structural changes in the sales and marketing, R&D and manufacturing operations organization to focus the Company’s resources on the key market opportunities in test and burn-in of devices where confidence in reliability, security, and safety are critically important. 
The Company currently estimates it will incur approximately $500,000 of cash expenditures in connection with the restructuring, substantially all of which relate to severance costs. The Company expects to recognize these restructuring charges in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The restructuring plan is expected to reduce the Company’s operating expenses by approximately $300,000 per quarter starting in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 beginning June 1, 2019.
