Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
As previously disclosed on August 22, 2018, Super Micro Computer, Inc. (the “Company”) received written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) of the Nasdaq Hearings Panel’s (the “Panel”) determination to suspend trading of the Company’s common stock effective at the open of business on August 23, 2018 and commence delisting procedures because the Company was delinquent in filing its periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), as required by Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). Following the suspension of trading on Nasdaq, the Company appealed the Panel’s determination to the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review Council (the “Listing Council”). On November 15, 2018, the Company received a notification that the Listing Council affirmed the decision of the Panel to suspend trading of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market and to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq. On January 30, 2019, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq that the Nasdaq Board of Directors has declined to call for review the Panel’s decision to delist the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq.
On March 7, 2019, the Company received notification from Nasdaq that it will issue a public announcement on March 11, 2019 that it will delist the Company’s common stock and will file a Form 25 Notification of Delisting with the SEC, notifying the SEC of Nasdaq’s determination to remove the Company’s common stock from listing on Nasdaq under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The formal delisting of the Company’s common stock from Nasdaq will become effective ten days after the Form 25 is filed.
The Company’s common stock is currently quoted on the OTC Markets under the trading symbol “SMCI,” and the Company expects that the final delisting action by Nasdaq will have no practical effect on the trading of its shares on the OTC Markets.

The Company intends to promptly apply to relist its common stock on Nasdaq or another national securities exchange as soon it is able to complete and file its delinquent periodic reports with the SEC. The Company’s common stock will continue to be registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Company will continue to file periodic financial and other reports with the SEC that will be available on the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov.
