PART III — NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
A10 Networks, Inc. (“A10” or the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”) by March 16, 2018, the original due date for such filing, without unreasonable effort or expense. As announced on January 30, 2018, the Audit Committee of the Company’s board of directors, with the assistance of outside counsel, is currently conducting an investigation regarding certain revenue recognition and internal control matters. The investigation is focused on the time period of the fourth quarter of 2015 through the fourth quarter of 2017 inclusive. The Audit Committee has not reached any conclusions because the investigation is ongoing. Consequently, the Company is not in a position to file the Form 10-K until after the completion of the Audit Committee’s investigation. While the Company continues to work expeditiously to conclude this review and to file the Form 10-K as soon as practical, it does not anticipate filing its Form 10-K within the 15-day extension period provided under Rule 12b-25(b).
