Item 3.01
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On November 16, 2017, Super Micro Computer, Inc. (the “Company”) 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 September 30, 2017 and its continued delay in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ending June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”). The Company previously submitted a plan of compliance to Nasdaq on November 10, 2017 (the “Plan) with respect to its delay in filing the Form 10-K (the “Initial Delinquent Filing”). Upon review of the Company’s Plan and in connection with this additional delinquency, the Letter requires that the Company submit an update to the Plan by November 30, 2017 (the “Revised Plan”). 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 12, 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 disclosed by the Company, additional time is needed for the Company to compile and analyze certain information and documentation and finalize its financial statements as of and for the year ended June 30, 2017, as well as complete a related audit committee investigation, in order to permit the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to complete its audit of the financial statements and the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2017. The Form 10-Q cannot be completed and filed until the Form 10-K is completed and filed. The Company is unable at this time to provide a date as to when the financial statements, the audit committee investigation and the following audit and review will be completed.

On November 20, 2017, 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.
