FALCONSTOR ANNOUNCES IT EXPECTS TRADING OF ITS COMMON STOCK WILL BE MOVED FROM NASDAQ TO OTC MARKET GROUP’S OTCQX MARKETPLACE
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 10, 2017 — FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC) (“FalconStor” or the “Company”) announced today it does not plan to appeal the delisting of its common stock from The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) due to the Company’s non-compliance with the minimum stockholders’ equity and closing bid requirements for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company expects that its common stock will trade on OTC Market Group’s OTC Pink marketplace and is currently in the process of applying to be quoted on OTC Market Group’s OTCQX marketplace.
As previously disclosed, the Company was given until May 22, 2017 to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirements and until June 6, 2017 to regain compliance with the market value requirement. However, currently neither requirement is met. Accordingly, to ensure a smooth transition in the trading of its Common Stock and avoid a time consuming and expensive appeal process, the Company has decided it will not appeal a potential delisting to a Nasdaq Hearing Panel or seek an extension of the period to regain compliance.
