Item 8.01. Other Events.

On June 24, 2015, the directors and certain officers of A10
Networks, Inc. (the Company) were named as defendants in a
putative derivative lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of the
State of California, County of Santa Clara (the Court), captioned
Hornung v. Chen, et al., 1-15-CV-282286 (the Derivative Action).
The Company was also named as a nominal defendant. The complaint
alleged breaches of fiduciary duties and other related claims,
arising out of allegations that the Companys officers and
directors caused the Company to infringe patents and intellectual
property, improperly approved the settlement of prior litigation,
failed to adopt and implement effective internal controls, and
caused the Company to issue false and misleading statements in
connection with the Companys initial public offering. The
plaintiffs sought unspecified compensatory damages and other
equitable relief.
On May 24, 2016, all parties entered into a memorandum of
understanding reflecting an agreement in principle to settle all
claims against all defendants asserted in the action, which
provided that the Company implement certain corporate governance
measures following final settlement approval. The parties
subsequently executed a stipulation of agreement and settlement
memorializing that agreement, dated August 26, 2016 (the
Stipulation of Settlement), which releases all claims asserted
against all defendants and includes the dismissal of all claims
against all defendants without any liability or wrongdoing
attributed to them
On November 21, 2016, the Court entered an order preliminarily
approving the Stipulation of Settlement and providing for notice
(the Preliminary Approval Order). The Preliminary Approval Order
provides that the Court will hold a hearing for final approval of
the Stipulation of Settlement on January 27, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.,
before the Hon. Peter Kirwan, Superior Court Judge for the
Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, located in
Dept. 1 at 191 N. First Street, San Jose, California 95113. to
the Preliminary Approval Order and paragraph 3.2 of the
