("A10" OR THE "COMPANY") COMMON STOCK PURSUANT AND/OR TRACEABLE TO THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT AND PROSPECTUS FOR THE COMPANY'S MARCH 21, 2014 INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING (THE "CLASS")
THIS NOTICE WAS AUTHORIZED BY THE COURT. IT IS NOT A LAWYER SOLICITATION. PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY AND IN ITS ENTIRETY.
YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that a hearing will be held on January 13, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., before the Honorable Peter H. Kirwan at the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, 191 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95113, to determine whether: (1) the proposed Settlement as set forth in the Stipulation of Settlement dated June 30, 2016 ("Stipulation") of the above-captioned action ("Litigation") for $9,837,500 in cash should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable, and adequate; (2) the Plan of Allocation should be approved by the Court as fair, reasonable, and adequate; (3) to award Plaintiffs' Counsel attorneys' fees and expenses out of the Settlement Fund (as defined in the Notice of Proposed Settlement of Class Action ("Notice"), which is discussed below); and (4) to pay Plaintiffs for their time and expenses they incurred in representing the Class in this Litigation out of the Settlement Fund.
This Litigation is a securities class action brought on behalf of those Persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of A10 pursuant and/or traceable to the Registration Statement and Prospectus ("Registration Statement") issued in connection with A10's March 21, 2014 initial public offering ("IPO"), against A10 and certain of its executives and the Underwriters of the IPO for allegedly misstating and omitting material facts from the Registration Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with the IPO. Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs' allegations.
IF YOU PURCHASED OR OTHERWISE ACQUIRED A10 COMMON STOCK PURSUANT AND/OR TRACEABLE TO THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FILED WITH THE SEC IN CONNECTION WITH THE COMPANY'S MARCH 21, 2014 IPO, YOUR RIGHTS MAY BE AFFECTED BY THE SETTLEMENT OF THIS LITIGATION.

Your failure to submit your Proof of Claim by February 10, 2017, will subject your claim to possible rejection and may preclude you from receiving any of the recovery in connection with the Settlement of this Litigation. If you are a Member of the Class and do not request exclusion, you will be bound by the Settlement and any judgment and release entered in the Litigation, including, but not limited to, the Judgment, whether or not you submit a Proof of Claim. Lead Counsel represent you and other Members of the Class. If you want to be represented by your own lawyer, you may hire one at your own expense.
If you have not received a copy of the Notice, which more completely describes the Settlement and your rights thereunder (including your right to object to the Settlement or exclude yourself from the Class), and a Proof of Claim form, you may obtain these documents, as well as a copy of the Stipulation (which, among other things, contains definitions for the defined terms used in this Summary Notice) and other Settlement documents, online at www.A10securitiessettlement.com, or by writing to:
