Toshiba Corp. said Friday that it will miss the deadline of June 30 to submit its annual financial statement, saying its auditor needs additional time to check the figures, the company said.

The struggling Tokyo-based firm said it gained approval from the regulator, the Kanto Local Finance Bureau, to extend the new deadline to Aug 10.

The annual financial statement, which includes an earnings report, is required by law to be filed with an auditor's opinion within three months from the end of the fiscal year.
