Discontinued Operations of Consumer Division

On February 9, 2007, we entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (“Purchase Agreement”) with Fabrik, Inc. (“Fabrik”) and Fabrik Acquisition Corp. (together with Fabrik, the “Purchasers”) for the sale of assets relating to a portion of our business which was engaged in the designing, final assembling, selling, marketing and distributing consumer-oriented products based on Flash memory, DRAM technologies and external storage solutions known as the Consumer Division. The consideration paid to us pursuant to the Purchase Agreement consisted of cash in the amount of approximately $43.0 million. The purchase price was subject to a post-closing adjustment for accrued expenses, reserves on inventory, reserves on accounts receivables and overhead capitalization of the Consumer Division (“Purchase Price Adjustment”). Subsequent to the closing of the sale, the Purchasers disputed certain amounts calculated by us in regards to the Purchase Price Adjustment. The original claim amount was approximately $6.7 million. In accordance with the Purchase Agreement, both parties agreed to resolve their Purchase Price Adjustment disputes through a third party arbitrator. During the arbitration proceeding, the Purchasers conceded approximately $4.0 million of their original disputed amounts. In January 2008, the arbitrator rejected substantially all of the Purchasers’ claims. As of September 30, 2008, no amounts have been recorded in the condensed consolidated financial statements for this matter as we are still in the process of enforcing the arbitrator’s decision and resolving other post-closing items with the Purchasers.

The sale of the assets of the Consumer Division meets the criteria defined in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” as a discontinued operation and is presented herein as such. The results of operations and gain on the sale of the assets of the Consumer Division are reported in income (loss) from discontinued operations in the Consolidated Financial Statements for all periods presented. Assets and liabilities sold are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2008 and December 31, 2007. As a result of the sale of the assets of the Consumer Division, which was previously reported as a separate operating segment, we now operate as a single reportable segment. The discussion of our financial condition and results of operations contained in this Form 10-Q include the operating results of our OEM business with our former Consumer Division being accounted for as a discontinued operation.

Discontinued Operations of Consumer Division

On February 9, 2007, we completed the sale of assets of our Consumer Division, including the name “SimpleTech,” to Fabrik, Inc. and Fabrik Acquisition Corp. for approximately $43 million, or approximately $10 million more than the net working capital of the Consumer Division. The selling price was subject to a post-closing adjustment for accrued expenses, reserves on inventory, reserves on accounts receivables and overhead capitalization of the Consumer Division. Subsequent to the closing of the sale, the purchasers disputed certain amounts calculated by us in regards to the purchase price adjustment. The original claim amount was approximately $6.7 million and was submitted to a third party arbitrator in accordance with the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement. During the arbitration proceeding, the purchasers conceded approximately $4.0 million of their original disputed amounts. In January 2008, the arbitrator rejected substantially all of the remaining purchasers’ claims. As of June 30, 2008, no amounts have been recorded in the consolidated financial statements for this matter as we are still in the process of enforcing the arbitrator’s decision and resolving other post-closing items with the purchasers.

Subsequent to the closing of the sale, Fabrik has disputed certain amounts calculated by us in regards to the Purchase Price Adjustment. The original claim amount was approximately $6.7 million. That amount has subsequently been reduced to approximately $2.7 million, which remains in dispute. In accordance with the Asset Purchase Agreement, both parties have agreed to resolve those matters through a third party arbitrator. In addition, there are other items in dispute that the parties are seeking to resolve. As of September 30, 2007, no amounts have been recorded in the consolidated financial statements for this matter as management believes it is too early in the proceedings to determine a final outcome.

The sale of assets included the “SimpleTech” name and we effected a corporate name change on March 7, 2007 from SimpleTech, Inc. to STEC, Inc. The sale of the assets of the Consumer Division meets the criteria defined in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” as a discontinued operation and is presented herein as such.

As a result of the sale of the assets of the Consumer Division, which was previously reported as a separate operating segment, we now operate as a single reportable segment.
