Item 3.01
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On February 20, 2018, Super Micro Computer, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it received a notification letter (the “Letter”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), as a result of the Company’s delay in filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended December 31, 2017 (the “Q2 10-Q”) and its continued delay in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ending June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”) and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017 (“Q1 10-Q”). As described in the letter, the Company has until February 28, 2018 to submit to Nasdaq an update to its original plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules (the “Revised Plan”). As previously disclosed, Nasdaq has granted the Company an extension until March 13, 2018 to file the Form 10-K, the Q1 10-Q and the Q2 10-Q.
The Letter has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. If the Revised Plan is submitted and accepted, the Company could be granted up to 180 days from the due date of the Initial Delinquent Filing, or March 13, 2018, to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, then the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq hearings panel.
As previously announced, the Company has been unable to file the Form 10-K and the Q1 10-Q. The Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors has completed the previously disclosed investigation. Additional time is required to analyze the impact, if any, of the results of the investigation on the Company’s historical financial statements, as well as to conduct additional reviews before the Company will be able to finalize the Form 10-K. The Company is unable at this time to provide a date as to when the Form 10-K will be filed or to determine whether the Company’s historical financial statements will be adjusted or, if so, the amount of any such adjustment(s) and what periods any such adjustments may impact. The Company intends to file the Q1 10-Q and Q2 10-Q promptly after filing the Form 10-K.
On February 20, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the receipt of the Letter. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
