Tech Data (TECD) -1.5% AH after disclosing it won't file its FQ1 10-Q on time thanks to its ongoing accounting review. Shares dove in March after the IT hardware distributor said it will have to restate results from FY11 onwards due to "improprieties" in its U.K. unit's accounting.
Tech Data (TECD) is restating some or all of its results from FY11 onwards to "correct improprieties" in its U.K. subsidiary's vendor accounting.

Shares are halted. (PR)
