FalconStor Software Announces its intention to voluntarily deregister under Section 12(g) of the SEC

2 Mins read

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$FALC #IBM–FalconStor Software, Inc. (OTCQB: FALC) (the “Company” or “FalconStor”), a trusted data protection leader modernizing disaster recovery and backup for the hybrid cloud world, today announced to voluntarily deregister under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). As such, the Company intends to file a Form 15 by July 12th, 2023. Moreover, FalconStor will move from the OTCQB tier to the Pink Current tier, both operated by the OTC Market Group Inc. (“OTC”).

The Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) believes that the decision to deregister and suspend its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act as well as moving to a lower OTC tier is in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. The Board has determined that the burdens associated with operating as a registered public company outweigh any advantages to the Company and its stockholders at this time. The Board carefully reviewed many factors, including the significant cost savings of no longer preparing and filing periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the reduction of significant legal, audit and other costs associated with being a reporting company.

The Company will continue to provide sufficient information to its shareholders in order to continue enabling a trading market for its common stock within the OTC Pink Current trading market. Once the Company is deregistered, the Board believes that the Company will refocus its financial and management resources towards growing its current business opportunities.
