Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

On August 22, 2018, Super Micro Computer, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that the Panel has determined to delist the Company’s common stock and that trading on Nasdaq’s Global Select Market will be suspended effective at the open of business on August 23, 2018.

As previously announced, on August 20, 2018, the Company notified 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 it will not be able to complete and file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for 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.

The Company intends to appeal the Panel’s decision to the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council. During the appeal period, trading in the Company’s common stock on Nasdaq will remain suspended and Nasdaq will not delist the Company’s common stock pending such appeal. Once the Company has regained compliance with its SEC filing requirements, the Company intends to promptly request that Nasdaq lift the suspension in trading of its common stock or, in the event the common stock is delisted, to promptly apply to relist its common stock on Nasdaq or another national securities exchange.

While the Company’s common stock is suspended from trading on Nasdaq, the Company expects that its shares will be quoted on the OTC Markets under the trading symbol SMCI. For quotes or additional information on the OTC Markets, you may visit http://www.otcmarkets.com.

On August 22, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the receipt of the Panel letter and suspension of trading on Nasdaq and its intention to appeal. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
