July 11, 2014



Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or

Standard; Transfer of Listing

On July 9, 2014, Ixia ("Ixia" or the "Company") received a letter (the "Letter") from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC indicating that a NASDAQ Hearings Panel (the "Panel") had determined to continue the listing of the Company's common stock on The NASDAQ Stock Market ("Nasdaq"). The continued listing is subject to the condition that, on or before September 12, 2014, Ixia become current in its periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Ixia must also be able to demonstrate at such time that it is in compliance with all other requirements for continued listing on Nasdaq. The Letter indicates that in the event the Company is unable to satisfy such conditions, the Company's common stock may be delisted.

On June 12, 2014, due to the Company's delayed filing with the SEC of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 (the "2013 Third Quarter Form 10-Q"), Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 (the "2013 Form 10-K"), and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 (the "2014 First Quarter Form 10-Q"), the Company appeared before the Panel in connection with the potential delisting of the Company's common stock. At the hearing, the Company presented a plan, and requested an extension of time, to regain compliance with the Nasdaq listing rule (the "Listing Rule") that requires the Company to be current in the filing of its periodic financial reports with the SEC.

On June 23, 2014, the Company filed with the SEC its 2013 Third Quarter Form 10-Q and 2013 Form 10-K, as well as amendments on Form 10-Q/A to its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 and a Current Report on Form 8-K/A relating to the Company's acquisition of Net Optics, Inc. on December 5, 2013. As a result of such filings, as of the date of this filing, the Company is only delinquent in filing its 2014 First Quarter Form 10-Q with the SEC.

On July 11, 2014, the Company issued a press release regarding the Panel's determination and the Company's current expectations regarding the timing of the filing with the SEC of its 2014 First Quarter Form 10-Q and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 in this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
