FiberTower Files Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing With SEC
Nov 09, 2011 (03:11 PM EST)


SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FiberTower Corporation (NASDAQ: FTWR), a wireless backhaul services provider, has filed a Notification of Late Filing, or Form 12b-25, with the Securities and Exchange Commission with regard to its third quarter 2011 Form 10-Q report. This allows the Company an additional five calendar days to file the Form 10-Q, which was otherwise due on November 9, 2011.

FiberTower is not able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 on or prior to November 9, 2011 because it is in the process of completing its analysis and quantification of asset impairment charges arising from events occurring in the quarter ended September 30, 2011. As the Company has not yet finalized the determination of the amount of the asset impairment charges to be incurred during the quarterly period ended September 30, 2011, a reasonable estimate of the results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011 cannot be made. As a result, the Company is unable to file its Form 10-Q on a timely basis without unreasonable effort and expense.
