MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., August 30, 2006 - MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS), announced today that following a company initiated voluntary review of historical stock-based compensation practices and related potential accounting impact, its board of directors has formed a special committee, consisting of independent directors, to review the Company’s historical option grant practices and the Company’s accounting for its option grants. The committee is retaining independent outside legal counsel to assist it in its review.
MIPS’ annual report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2006 is due to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before September 13, 2006. While the committee is working to complete its review as quickly as possible, MIPS believes it is likely that the process will not be completed in a manner that will allow the annual report on Form 10-K to be filed by that date.
