"The FalconStor customer base continues to receive value in the form of optimized storage, business continuity and lower total cost of ownership," said Gary Quinn, president and CEO of FalconStor. "We are strengthening our balance sheet, and reviewing our current product portfolio for additional investments. We are excited about our joint-efforts into the "flash memory" market segment, we are rebalancing our routes-to-market -- both by customer segment and geography -- and we look to rationalize our costs to maximize stockholder value."

  • Appointed Gary Quinn President and Chief Executive Officer in July 2013.
