FalconStor Software Inc., a Melville provider of data protection software and services, has received a delisting notification from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, the company said in a government filing Tuesday.

The Nasdaq letter, received Nov. 22, said that FalconStor was out of compliance because its stock price was below $1 per share for 30 consecutive business days.

The Nasdaq letter said that FalconStor will have 180 days, until May 22, to regain compliance with the minimum $1 price requirement. A second 180-day compliance period could be granted under certain conditions.
