Item 2.02

Results of Operations and Financial Conditions.

On August 2, 2018 Impinj Inc. (Impinj) issued a press release announcing certain financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Additionally, Impinj announced that it has canceled its previously scheduled investor call during which it had intended to discuss such results. 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.


All financial results in the press release were prepared by management and are preliminary. As noted below, the Audit Committee of Impinj’s Board of Directors has commenced an independent investigation. Because the investigation is not yet completed and no conclusions with respect thereto have been reached, Impinj is currently unable to determine whether any changes will be required with respect to its reported results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 or any other period, as well as any impact on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.


Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

The Audit Committee of Impinj’s Board of Directors has commenced an independent investigation in connection with a complaint filed by a former employee. The Audit Committee has retained independent counsel to assist it in its investigation. Impinj has contacted the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to advise it that an independent investigation is underway, and the Audit Committee intends to provide additional information to the SEC as appropriate as the investigation proceeds. Impinj cannot predict the duration or outcome of the investigation, and will not be in a position to file Form 10-Q until the Audit Committee completes its investigation.
