Rigrodsky
& Long, P.A.
announces that it is investigating potential legal
claims against the board of directors (the "Board") of Electro
Scientific Industries, Inc. ("ESI" or the "Company") (NASDAQ GS: ESIO)
related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by MKS
Instruments, Inc. ("MKS") (NASDAQ GS: MKSI)
in a transaction announced on October 30, 2018 (the "Proposed
Transaction").

On October 30, 2018, the Board caused ESI to enter into an agreement and
plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement") with MKS. Pursuant to the terms
of the agreement, shareholders of ESI will receive $30.00 in cash for
each share of ESI common stock.

connection with the Proposed Transaction, which recommends that ESI's
shareholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction. Rigrodsky

material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction.
