Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
Apple Computer, Inc. (Apple or the Company) filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to report that it will not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 1, 2006. The Form 12b-25 included the following narrative:
The Company anticipates that there will be significant changes in the results of operations for the quarter ended July 1, 2006 compared to the quarter ended June 25, 2005, including significant increases in the Companys revenue and expenses. The Company cannot provide a reasonable estimate of the results because it will likely need to restate its historical financial statements to record non-cash charges for compensation expense relating to past stock option grants. As the investigation related to stock option grants is currently ongoing, the Company cannot at this time reasonably estimate the amount of any such charges, the resulting tax and accounting impact, or which periods may require restatement.
Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
The Company announced that it will request a hearing before the NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the Panel) in response to the receipt of a NASDAQ Staff Determination letter today indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the filing requirements for continued listing as set forth in Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14). As anticipated, the letter was issued in accordance with NASDAQ procedures due to the delayed filing of the Companys Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 1, 2006. Pending a decision by the Panel, Apple shares will remain listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market. A copy of Apples press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
The following exhibit is filed herewith:
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
