Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On April 3, 2018, A10 Networks, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria outlined in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, given the Company has not timely filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
As reported by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on March 19, 2018 (the “Form 12b-25”), the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. The extension period provided under Rule 12b-25 expired on April 2, 2018. As disclosed in the Form 12b-25, the Company did not expect to file the Form 10-K by the prescribed due date allowed pursuant to Rule 12b-25. Accordingly, the Company anticipated receiving the aforementioned notice from the NYSE.
The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE’s rules, the Company will have six months from April 2, 2018 to file the Form 10-K with the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements at any time prior to such date by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-K by the NYSE’s six-month compliance deadline, then the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, a further extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The letter from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if the circumstances warrant.
A copy of the press release relating to this announcement is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
