The delay in the filing of the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 27, 2008 is related to the previously announced investigation being conducted by the Audit Committee of Cadence's Board of Directors and its independent counsel. Cadence will file the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 27, 2008 as soon as practicable.
The NASDAQ letter also stated that Cadence may submit a plan to regain compliance no later than January 19, 2009. If Cadence has not previously filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 27, 2008, then prior to the January 19, 2009 deadline, Cadence will file a compliance plan with NASDAQ. Following a review of such compliance plan, the NASDAQ staff may grant Cadence an extension of time to regain compliance. During this time, and through the extension period which may be granted to Cadence by the NASDAQ staff, Cadence's securities will continue to be listed on The NASDAQ Global Select Market.
