Third Quarter 10-Q Results


Tewksbury, Mass, 2009-11-11 Avid® (NASDAQ: AVID) today announced that it will delay the filing of its Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009.  The report will now be issued on November 16, 2009, rather than November 9.  The delay is due to additional time required for the previously announced Audit Committee investigation relating to errors in the recognition of revenue from shipments near the end of fiscal quarters from certain warehouses outside of the United States.

Avid expects to record changes to its previously announced financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2009 to reflect these errors. Due to additional work that is required to evaluate and quantify such changes, the company cannot determine at this time if the changes will be material.  However, based on the current progress of the investigation, Avid does not believe that any errors relating to periods prior to 2009 will be material to its financial statements for any such prior periods.
