Item 8.01. Other Events
Extreme Networks, Inc. (“Extreme Networks”) previously announced its intention to hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. An individual stockholder subsequently submitted a proposal for inclusion in the annual meeting proxy statement. Under Rule 14a-8 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), as amended, Extreme Networks must allow this stockholder sufficient time to attempt to meet the requirements for proposal inclusion which to date have not been met.
As a result, in order to comply with Exchange Act requirements that a proxy statement be mailed to stockholders at least 20 business days before the date of an annual meeting, Extreme Networks must change the date for its annual meeting. Extreme Networks intends to set the date and to mail the proxy statement as expeditiously as possible once this pending matter is resolved.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
