Summary of Preliminary Restated Second Quarter Financial Results

Everspin also announced today that the company will be restating its second quarter 2018 financial results due to a discrepancy related to the timing of recognizing scrapped inventory in the amount of $770 thousand. As a result, the company will reflect an additional $770 thousand increase in cost of sales for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2018, which will reduce gross profit and increase both loss from operations and net loss. The company anticipates filing its third quarter 10-Q and an amended second quarter form 10-Q/A on or before November 16, 2018. The second quarter 2018 financials are expected to be restated as follows:

Company to restate second quarter inventory to $8.9 million, versus $9.6 million previously reported Cost of sales to be restated to be $6.2 million, versus $5.5 million as previously reported Gross profit to be restated to be $4.5 million, versus $5.3 million as previously reported Gross margin to be restated to be 42%, versus the 49% as previously reported Loss from operations to be restated to be $7.3 million, versus $6.5 million as previously reported Net loss and comprehensive loss to be restated to be $7.4 million, versus $6.6 million as previously reported
