Item 6.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers.


The following is a summary of the general effect of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), our bylaws and certificate of incorporation and certain agreements entered into with each of our directors and executive officers relating to the indemnification of our directors and officers and insurance therefor. Such summaries are necessarily subject to the complete text of such statute, bylaws, certificate of incorporation and agreements and are qualified in their entirety by reference thereto.


Section 145 of the DGCL provides that a corporation may indemnify any person made a party to an action by reason of the fact that he or she was a director, executive officer, employee or agent of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection with such action if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the corporation and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful, except that, in the case of an action by or in right of the corporation, no indemnification may generally be made in respect of any claim as to which such person is adjudged to be liable to the corporation. Section 145 of the DGCL also permits, in general, a Delaware corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the corporation, or served another entity in any capacity at the request of the corporation, against liability incurred by such person in such capacity, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liability.


Section 174 of the DGCL provides, among other things, that a director who willfully or negligently approves of an unlawful payment of dividends or an unlawful stock purchase or redemption may be held liable for such actions. A director who was either absent when the unlawful actions were approved or dissented at the time, may avoid liability by causing his or her dissent to such actions to be entered in the books containing the minutes of the meetings of the board of directors at the time the action occurred or immediately after the absent director receives notice of the unlawful acts.


Article VI of our bylaws provides that we shall indemnify our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL. Our bylaws require us, among other things, to indemnify our directors and officers against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers and to advance expenses to them as they are incurred, provided that they undertake to repay the amount advanced if it is ultimately determined by a court that they are not entitled to indemnification. Our bylaws require that we indemnify our officers and directors in connection with any proceeding (or part thereof) initiated by the officer or director only if the initiation of the proceeding was authorized by the Board of Directors.




Article IX of our certificate of incorporation provides that our directors shall not be personally liable to the corporation or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of his or her fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the corporation or our stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) for willful or negligent conduct in paying dividends or repurchasing stock out of other than lawfully available funds pursuant to Section 174 of the DGCL, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derives an improper personal benefit.


We have entered into an indemnification agreement with each of our directors and officers. Under the terms of the indemnification agreements, subject to certain exceptions specified in the indemnification agreements, we will indemnify each of our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law in the event a director or officer becomes subject to or a participant in certain claims or proceedings as a result of his or her service as a director or officer. We will also, subject to certain exceptions and repayment conditions, advance to our directors and officers specified indemnifiable expenses incurred in connection with such claims or proceedings.


We have an insurance policy which will entitle us to be reimbursed for certain indemnity payments we are required or permitted to make to our directors and officers.

Item 9.




The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:




To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Post-Effective Amendment:




To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;




To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and




To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement;


Provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in the periodic reports filed with or furnished to the SEC by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement.




That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.






To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.



The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in this Post-Effective Amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.



Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the Township of Mt. Laurel, State of New Jersey, on August 10, 2023.

Re:         Registration Statement on Form S-8


Ladies and Gentlemen:


We have acted as counsel to inTEST Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with its filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “Registration Statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), with respect to the registration of 350,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”), par value $0.01 per share, reserved for issuance pursuant to the terms of the inTEST Corporation 2023 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). This opinion is furnished to you at your request to enable you to fulfill the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K, 17 C.F.R. § 229.601(b)(5), in connection with the filing of the Registration Statement.


For purposes of this opinion, we have with your permission made the following assumptions, in each case without independent verification: (i) the due authorization, execution and delivery of all documents by all the parties thereto; (ii) the genuineness of all signatures on all documents submitted to us; (iii) the authenticity and completeness of all documents, corporate records, certificates and other instruments (the “Records”) submitted to us; (iv) that photocopy, electronic, certified, conformed, facsimile and other copies submitted to us of the Records conform to the original Records; (v) the legal capacity of all individuals executing documents; (vi) that all documents are the valid and binding obligations of each of the parties thereto, enforceable against such parties in accordance with their respective terms and that no such documents have been amended or terminated orally or in writing; (vii) that the statements contained in the certificates and comparable documents of public officials, officers and representatives of the Company and other persons on which we have relied for the purposes of this opinion are true and correct; and (viii) that at the time the Shares are issued, the Company will be validly existing and there will be sufficient Shares authorized under the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended and then in effect, and not otherwise issued or reserved for issuance. As to all questions of fact material to this opinion, we have relied (without independent verification) upon certificates or comparable documents of officers and representatives of the Company.


1600 BAUSCH & LOMB PLACE  ROCHESTER, NY 14604-2711 PHONE: 585.232.6500 FAX: 585.232.2152



Based upon, subject to and limited by the foregoing, we are of the opinion that following (i) effectiveness of the Registration Statement with the SEC, (ii) issuance of the Shares in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Plan, and (iii) receipt by the Company of the legal consideration for the Shares as specified in the Plan in an amount no less than the par value of such Shares, the Shares will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.


We express no opinion with respect to the effect of any law other than the law of the State of New York, and the applicable provisions of Delaware General Corporate Law.


This opinion letter has been prepared in accordance with the customary practice of lawyers who regularly give, and lawyers who regularly advise opinion recipients concerning, opinions of the type contained herein.


This opinion letter deals only with the specified legal issues expressly addressed herein, and you should not infer any opinion that is not explicitly addressed herein from any matter stated in this letter.


We consent to the use of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement. In giving such consent, we do not hereby admit that we are within the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder. This opinion is rendered to you as of the date hereof and we assume no obligation to advise you or any other person hereafter with regard to any change after the date hereof in the circumstances or the law that may bear on the matters set forth herein even though the changes may affect the legal analysis or legal conclusion or other matters in this letter.



Very truly yours,
