Overland Storage Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/13/13 -- Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), a trusted global provider of unified data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter ended September 30, 2013.

"We are excited about our agreement to acquire Tandberg Data, which would create a company which had approximately $110 million in annual revenue in our last fiscal year and would provide substantial resources and cost synergies, enabling us to compete more effectively in the marketplace and move toward a clearer path to profitability following integration of the two companies," said Eric Kelly, President and CEO of Overland Storage. "With this acquisition, we would have a larger sales engine and expanded market reach to realize the growth potential of the innovative and award-winning products we have developed over the last couple years.

"During the quarter, we continued to see solid growth in revenue from our SnapServer DX Series, both from the immediately preceding quarter and year-over-year, and we remain on track to begin rolling out our mobility business solution in the first quarter of calendar 2014, which is designed to enable us to deliver the full functionality of true native applications to any mobile device anywhere as a workforce productivity solution. Moving forward, we expect our products to benefit from a substantially expanded channel of 16,000 partners as a result of our acquisition of Tandberg Data."

Recent Highlights:

  • Disk product revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was up 4% compared to the preceding quarter and up 26% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

  • SnapServer DX Series product revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $1.9 million, up 19% over the preceding quarter and up 34% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

  • We released SnapScale X4, a clustered NAS product that is designed to provide a high-density solution to more efficiently manage growing amounts of unstructured data.

  • We amended our San Diego lease reducing our square footage, resulting in an annual savings of over $1.2 million after February 2014.

  • We entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Tandberg Data Holdings S.à.r.l., a privately held global leader of data storage and data protection solutions. The sole consideration payable by us in the acquisition consists of shares of our common stock. The acquisition is currently expected to be completed by the end of December 2013, subject to customary closing conditions, shareholder and regulatory approvals.

  • Following the filing of the preliminary proxy for the Tandberg Data Holdings S.à.r.l. acquisition, the holders of our convertible notes converted $10.7 million of convertible notes into shares of our common stock at $1.30 per share.

  • We received gross proceeds of $3.0 million from the sale of convertible notes under our amended and restated note purchase agreement entered into in November 2013 which provides for the issuance of for up to $7.0 million of convertible notes in the aggregate.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
No hype cycles or predictions of zillions of things here. IoT is big. You get it. You know your business and have great ideas for a business transformation strategy. What comes next? Time to make it happen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jay Mason, Associate Partner at M&S Consulting, presented a step-by-step plan to develop your technology implementation strategy. He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...
