Press Release: Overland Storage Reports Fiscal 2009 Second Quarter Results
- - Announces New Business Model - -
Net revenue for the fiscal 2009 second quarter was
For the first six months of fiscal 2009, the company reported net revenue of
The company noted that net revenue for the fiscal 2009 second quarter decreased 15.2 percent from the fiscal 2008 second quarter primarily due to lower sales to the company's largest OEM customer. Total OEM revenue was down 37.1 percent compared to the fiscal 2008 second quarter. This trend continues to reflect the previously announced transition by the customer to a new product from an alternate supplier. Total branded revenue declined only 1.7 percent compared to branded revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Sales in the Americas region was relatively flat compared to the prior year quarter, while a 15.1 percent decline in EMEA and a 40.2 percent decline in APAC were offset by a 24.4 percent increase in revenue of service and spares.

"The challenges we faced in the December quarter were significant," stated
"During this process, our board of directors was extremely supportive.
"We developed our new financial model to significantly reduce the breakeven point, and that has become our near-term goal," commented
"We targeted specific areas where we believe we can generate significant savings," continued Kelly. "We identified approximately
"Despite the global economic conditions, IDC estimates storage growth at 60 percent annually," Kelly added. "We believe that global demand will continue for end-to-end data protection solutions that offer storage tiering, thin provisioning, data deduplication and enterprise file-based storage delivered at an optimal value proposition. Overland excels at this formula, providing the required solution at the best price. We are committed to offering both tape- and disk-based solutions that address storage needs for both structured and unstructured data in the SMB and distributed enterprise markets. To operate efficiently and maximize storage utilization, IT managers must take advantage of new technologies, including data deduplication that Overland's REO(R) 9500D provides, and thin provisioning capabilities as offered by the Dynamic Virtual Tape(TM) (DVT) feature embedded in Overland's other REO VTL solutions.
"As Vern already pointed out, network attached storage (NAS) solutions are critical to solving customers' unstructured data requirements. As Snap represents the largest worldwide NAS-installed base, we plan to leverage this position to continue providing storage solutions to the distributed enterprise and the SMB space. Our goal is to integrate and magnify Snap's performance within Overland, thereby creating greater and significant value for Overland shareholders. Though much work lies ahead, we have already identified a number of ways to add value to the existing Snap platform and to elevate it as a market force. Our recent push into the video surveillance market is one example. The Snap platform is ideally suited for this rapidly growing market already in the midst of a technology shift, moving from analog to high-resolution digital capture and storage. We are currently at work expanding the Snap operating system to include unique features and capabilities designed to enhance its ability to function as a network video recorder and storage management system. The development process is never static, and we are working on capability expansions of the Snap software and hardware. As evidence, we introduced version 5.0 of the Guardian OS operating system last September with enhanced data replication software and the Snap Server 620 model with dual-core AMD Opteron processors that deliver 63 percent faster performance.
"Lastly, I would like to comment on tape," added Kelly. "Overland's NEO(R) Series of tape automation products has a rock-solid reputation in the industry. End-users find significant value in the reliability, scalability and expanded feature set of NEO, factors that the standard value-line automation products on the market fail to adequately address. We will soon be announcing an enhanced version of NEO that we believe will further its value and translate into increased demand.
"Though conscious of the challenging worldwide economy, we believe that our new business plan substantially modifies the prospects for Overland's longevity and prosperity," concluded Kelly. "We now turn to the job of execution. Knowing the experience and dedication of the Overland team, we believe that we are up to the task, and are highly confident of our success."
