As previously disclosed by SunPower Corporation (the “Company”) in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on October 24, 2023 (the “Form 8-K”), on October 19, 2023, the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), based upon the recommendation of management, determined that the Company’s (i) audited financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended January 1, 2023, filed with the SEC on March 10, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”), (ii) unaudited financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended April 2, 2023, filed with the SEC on May 3, 2023 (the “Q1 2023 Form 10-Q”), and (iii) unaudited financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended July 2, 2023, filed with the SEC on August 2, 2023 (the “Q2 2023 Form 10-Q,” and collectively, the “Affected Periods”), as well as the relevant portions of any communication which describe or are based on such financial statements, should no longer be relied upon. The Company also disclosed that it plans to restate, as soon as practicable, the financial statements for the Affected Periods in amendments to the Form 10-K, the Q1 2023 Form 10-Q, and the Q2 2023 Form 10-Q, respectively (collectively, the “Restatement”).
As a result of the Restatement, the Company is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended October 1, 2023 (the “Q3 2023 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company is working diligently to complete the Restatement and plans to file the Q3 2023 Form 10-Q as soon as practicable.
