LIQUIDMETAL TECHNOLOGIES INC - Recent Material Event

Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

On March 9, 2012, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), in consultation with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, determined that the Company will restate its financial statements for the year ended 2010 as reported on the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and for the corresponding interim periods in fiscal 2011 for which the Company filed reports on Form 10-Q.  Accordingly, the Company’s prior financial statements for such periods should no longer be relied upon.

Specifically, the Audit Committee, in consultation with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, determined that certain of the Company’s stock purchase warrants related to preferred stock issuances were not properly recorded in accordance with the Derivative and Hedging Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 815 ("ASC 815"), which became effective for the Company on July 1, 2009.  Therefore, the Company intends to restate its consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2010, as well as the interim periods in fiscal 2011, by way of footnote disclosure in the Company’s forthcoming Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.

All of the restatement adjustments are non-cash in nature and not related to the Company’s operations.
