Item 8.01 Other Events.
A significant customer of the Company, Elpida Memory, Inc. (“Elpida”), recently filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan. Elpida has stated its intent to reorganize its business and its operations remain ongoing. Elpida is paying the Company on a current basis for all shipments made subsequent to its bankruptcy filing. However, Elpida owes the Company approximately $4 million in accounts receivable, as of the bankruptcy filing on February 27, 2012. Pending the approval of a plan of reorganization for Elpida, it is uncertain if any or all of this balance will be collected. Management will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate the impact on our business as more information becomes available.
