On November 27, 2017, Defendants announced that Jonathan Chou stepped down as Kulicke & Soffa’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer.

On May 10, 2018, the Company notified investors it would not timely file its quarterly report for the period ended March 31, 2018, explaining it is investigating certain unauthorized transactions by a senior finance employee.  Defendants also explained the Company’s financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2017 can no longer be relied upon due to misstated warranty accruals.
