Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 16, 2018, Tintri, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from Flextronics Telecom Systems, Ltd. (“Flex”) notifying the Company that it was in breach of the Flextronics Manufacturing Services Agreement dated December 22, 2014, by and between the Company and Flex (the “Flex Agreement”) on account of the Company’s failure to pay amounts past due under the Flex Agreement. If the Company is unable to cure the breach described in the Notice within 15 days from the date of the Notice, the Flex Agreement will terminate at such time. Additionally, Flex notified the Company that it has discontinued ordering materials and shipping products in connection with the Flex Agreement until the Company provides Flex with adequate assurances of future payment. Flex has since agreed to make specific shipments of products paid for in advance by the Company under such terms and conditions as Flex and the Company have agreed. Flex may or may not continue to ship prepaid products in the future. The Company is engaged in ongoing discussions with Flex concerning the matters set forth in the Notice.

Under the terms of the Flex Agreement, Flex manufactures all of the Company’s hardware products. The Flex Agreement is terminable at any time by the Company with 90 days’ notice or by Flex with 120 days’ notice, or following a 15-day cure period if the Company defaults on any payments to Flex. Flex has no obligation to provide services to help transition the Company’s manufacturing processes to another manufacturer. The Flex Agreement does not provide for any specific volume purchase commitments, though the Company is required to submit a nine month forecast for orders (the first three months of which are binding) and orders are placed on a purchase order basis. The Company has commitments to Flex related to inventories on-hand with Flex and non-cancelable purchase orders for its products and related components. As of April 30, 2018, the Company had $9.3 million of purchase commitments with Flex.


Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On June 20, 2018, the Company received a notice (the “Nasdaq Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) stating that because the Company had not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2018 (the “Form 10-Q”), the Company is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1). Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Failure to comply with Nasdaq listing standards may result in the delisting of the Company’s shares from Nasdaq.

The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s shares on Nasdaq. The Notice states that the Company has until July 2, 2018 to submit to Nasdaq a plan to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Listing Rules. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, then Nasdaq may grant the Company up to 180 days from the prescribed due date for filing the Form 10-Q to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, then the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.

On June 21, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing its receipt of the Notice. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
