Item 3.01
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On August 20, 2018, Super Micro Computer, Inc. (the “Company”) submitted a supplemental letter to the Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Panel that the Company will be unable to meet the Panel’s August 24, 2018 deadline to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company will not be able to complete and file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 (the “2017 Form 10-K”) and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for its fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2017, December 31, 2017 and March 31, 2018 (collectively with the 2017 Form 10-K, the “Delinquent Reports”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by such date.
As previously disclosed, by decision dated May 9, 2018, the Panel granted the Company’s request to continue its listing on Nasdaq’s Global Select Market through August 24, 2018, subject to the condition that the Company become current with its SEC filings by that date and informs the Panel the Company is current with such filings. While the Company has made significant progress toward completing the necessary accounting review processes, it has determined that the Delinquent Reports will not be filed with the SEC by August 24, 2018.
As a result of the updated timing, the Company expects that its common stock will soon be suspended from trading on Nasdaq’s Global Select Market and the Panel will begin delisting proceedings. If the Panel decides to delist the Company's common stock, the Company will evaluate all of its options, including filing an appeal to the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council.
On August 21, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the notification to the Panel of its determination. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
