Beginning on August 29, 2017, Super Micro Computer alerted investors to problems with timely filing its financial statements at the SEC. This time, the Company said it would not file its annual report for the year ended June 30, 2017.
Shortly thereafter, NASDAQ notified the Company that it was out of compliance with listing rules.
During late October 2017 the Company announced it reversed certain revenues recorded during the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and instead recognized them during the quarter ended March 31, 2017.
By January 30, 2018 the Company announced it had still not filed its annual report, its Audit Committee completed its investigation into the matter, and its CFO left the Company.
During the course of these events, the price of Super Micro’s shares fell from the August 29, 2017 closing price of $27.20 to close at $22.83 on January 31, 2018 – a loss of $4.37 or about 16%.
“We’re focused on the extent of SMCI’s apparent violations of generally accepted accounting principles, whether it will restate, and investors’ damages,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
