SST Updates Status of the Filing of its Financial Reports With the SEC

SST Updates Status of the Filing of its Financial Reports With the SEC

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SST (Silicon Storage Technology, Inc.) , a leader in flash memory technology, announced today that it plans to file its delinquent periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission by January 15, 2008. It also intends to hold its 2007 annual shareholders meeting as soon as practical thereafter.

In March 2007, the Company announced it was conducting a voluntary review of its historical stock option grant practices covering the time from its initial public offering in 1995 through 2007. As a result, SST's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission were delayed while the chairman of the Audit Committee conducted an independent review. In July 2007, the Company announced the chairman of the Audit Committee had reached a preliminary conclusion that SST will need to restate its historical financial statements to record additional non-cash stock-based compensation expense related to stock option grants as a result of errors in recording the measurement date for certain stock option grants. Since that time SST has been working to determine those compensation charges and their related impact and prepare its delinquent filings.
