Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) announced today that as expected and due to the previously reported delay in the company’s filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 (the “2014 Form 10-Q”), on May 15, 2014, the company received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the company that it does not comply with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”). The Rule requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The letter also notifies the company that its delay in filing the 2014 Form 10-Q serves as an additional basis for the potential delisting of the company’s common stock due to non-compliance with the Rule. As previously reported, the company also does not comply with the Rule due to the delayed filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 (the “2013 Form 10-Q”) and its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 (the “2013 Form 10-K”).
As the company also previously announced, on May 2, 2014 and in accordance with standard Nasdaq procedures, Nasdaq notified the company that due to the company’s delay in filing its 2013 Form 10-Q and 2013 Form 10-K, the company’s common stock would be delisted unless the company timely requested a hearing before a Nasdaq Listings Qualification Panel (a “Hearings Panel”). The company timely requested such a hearing, which has been scheduled for June 12, 2014. At the hearing, the company plans to present an updated plan to regain compliance with the Rule and to request an extension of time for the filing of its delayed reports. The Hearings Panel will have the discretion to grant or deny the company’s request. Any extension that is granted may not extend beyond November 13, 2014.
The company’s request for a hearing automatically stayed the delisting and suspension of trading in the company’s common stock until May 24, 2014. As part of the hearing request, the company also requested that the automatic stay be extended until such time as the hearing has been held and the Hearings Panel has made its decision. Nasdaq has indicated that the company will receive a decision regarding the company’s request for the extended stay prior to the expiration of the automatic stay. The Hearings Panel may in its discretion grant or deny the request. If the Hearings Panel grants the request, any potential delisting would be deferred until the hearing has been held and the Hearings Panel has made its decision.
The company continues to work diligently and to devote substantial resources to complete its 2013 Form 10-Q, 2013 Form 10-K and 2014 Form 10-Q (collectively, the “Reports”), as well as the previously announced restatement of the financial statements contained in the company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 (the “Quarterly Reports”). The company continues to make substantial progress in these matters and plans to file its Reports and the amendments to its previously filed Quarterly Reports as soon as practicable.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
