SHREWSBURY, N.J., Nov. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (the "Company" or "InterCloud") (Nasdaq:ICLD), a single-source provider of end-to-end information technology (IT) and next-generation network solutions to the telecommunications service provider (carrier) and corporate enterprise markets through cloud platforms and professional services, today reported financial results for the third quarter 2014.

Third Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 37% year-over-year to $20.5 million
  • Gross profit increased 17% year-over-year to $5.4 million
  • Stockholders' Equity increased to $30.9 million, from ($1.7) million at fiscal year-end 2013

Mark Munro, Chairman and CEO of InterCloud, stated, "Our cloud and managed services segment continues to be a strong driver for our overall operational performance. During the third quarter, we achieved record revenues of $20.5 million. Additionally, we announced our exciting news about our formal roll out of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) in our cloud with Juniper Networks."

"We remain excited about the long-term potential of InterCloud and believe the steps we've taken over the past 21 months have positioned the Company to capitalize on the immense opportunities in front of us and creates the necessary foundation for ongoing financial performance. We believe that the current capital commitment of hiring additional sales personnel will provide the basis for continued growth in 2015 and beyond," continued Mr. Munro.

Revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014 increased $5.5 million, or 37%, to $20.5 million, as compared to $15.0 million for the third quarter of 2013. This was the result of increased revenue from our cloud and managed services segment.

The Company had a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(8.6) million in the third quarter of 2014 compared to net income of $1.3 million for the comparable period of 2013. This increase in net loss resulted from non-cash expenses including goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration and derivative instruments and depreciation and amortization totaling $4.5 million. Additionally, the Company had an increase of $4.3 million in salaries, wages and SG&A expense resulting from an increase in personnel to implement our aggressive growth strategy.

Also included in SG&A expense is non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to $-0- in the third quarter of 2013 and non-cash amortization of debt discount and prepaid loan costs of $2.1 million, which is included interest expense, in the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to $0.4 million for the comparable period of 2013.
