NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of FalconStor Software, Inc. ("FalconStor" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:FALC) during the period February 5, 2009 – September 29, 2010 (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to contact Fei-Lu Qian at 888-476-6529 or email@example.com.
FalconStor develops, manufactures, and sells network storage software solutions as well as provides related maintenance, implementation, and engineering services. The investigation concerns whether the Company made improper payments to secure a contract with at least one of the Company's customers; and, as a result of the foregoing, whether the Company's officers lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about FalconStor and its prospects.
On September 29, 2010, FalconStor issued a press release announcing that its Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President, ReiJane Huai, "resigned from all of his positions with the Company, effective immediately." The press release stated that Mr. Huai "tendered his resignation following his disclosure that certain improper payments were allegedly made in connection with the Company's contract with one customer." In response to this news, the price of FalconStor common stock fell $0.91 per share, or 22%, to close at $3.15 per share, on unusually high trading volume.
