PART II -- RULE 12b-25(b) AND (c)
If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25 (b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)

 (a)The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
(c)The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
The Daktronics, Inc. 401(k) Plan is not filing by the prescribed due date its Form 11-K for the period ending April 30, 2022 (the “Form 11-K”).
In mid May 2021, our 401(k) Plan completed the process of migration of the Plan from the recordkeeping platform of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. to the recordkeeping platform of Principal Financial Group. The migration records are complex and in process of review for accuracy. Therefore, Deloitte & Touche LLP has not completed the audit of the 401(k) Plan as of the filing of the Form 12B-25. Daktronics, Inc. and Principal Financial Group have been working with Deloitte & Touche LLP rigorously on the completion of the audit of the 401(k) Plan and the filing of the 11-K. As soon Deloitte & Touche LLP has completed their audit and issued their opinion and consent, Daktronics, Inc. will be in the position to file its Form 11-K.
