(NASDAQ: MIPS), today announced that the Company has filed for an extension of time to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended June 30, 2006. On August 30, 2006, MIPS Technologies announced that following a company-initiated voluntary review of historical stock-based compensation practices and related potential accounting impact, its board of directors had formed a special committee, consisting of independent directors, to review the Company's historical option grant practices and the accounting for its option grants.
