Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On August 18, 2010, EMCORE Corporation (the “Company”) received a letter from the NASDAQ Stock Market (the “NASDAQ”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with the continued listing requirements under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c)(1).  The NASDAQ letter, which the Company expected, was issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures because the Company did not timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10−Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 (the “Quarterly Report”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As previously reported by the Company in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 16, 2010, the filing of the Quarterly Report has been delayed because the Company requires additional time to complete its review of the accounting for certain inventory write-downs and the allowance against a specific account receivable that the Company has determined should be recorded. The Company intends to file its Quarterly Report as soon as practicable upon completion of its review.
The Company is required to submit a plan to regain compliance with NASDAQ’s requirements for continued listing and the plan must be submitted by October 18, 2010.
The Company issued a press release on August 24, 2010, disclosing its receipt of the NASDAQ letter.   A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
