This excerpt taken from the ATVI 8-K filed Jun 1, 2007.
On Friday, May 25, 2007, Activision filed an amended annual report on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006. Consistent with the estimate released by Activision on May 3, 2007, the Form 10-K/A reports a total of approximately $66.7 million in additional pre-tax ($45.4 million after-tax) non-cash equity-based compensation expense as a result of the stock option inquiry over the thirteen year period from April 1, 1993 through March 31, 2006. All but $2.6 million of the additional pre-tax non-cash equity-based compensation expense relates to periods prior to fiscal year 2006, and eighty percent of the additional pre-tax non-cash equity-based compensation expense relates to periods prior to April 1, 2003. In addition, Activision will report $0.6 million in additional pre-tax non-cash equity-based compensation expense during the quarter ended June 30, 2006.
Activision expects that it will shortly be in a position to file an amended quarterly report on Form 10-Q/A for the quarter ended June 30, 2006 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended September 30 and December 31, 2006. The completion of these filings will bring the company current in its periodic reporting obligations and will restore the companys compliance with Nasdaq listing requirements.
The company also intends to file its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007 on or before June 14, 2007, and to that end has filed for an automatic 15-day extension of the deadline for that filing to June 14, 2007.
The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by, and investors are urged to carefully read, the Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006 that was filed last week.
