InterCloud Systems Closes Out 2015 With New Contracts Valued at Over $2.3 Million

NEW YORK, Jan. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (the "Company" or "InterCloud") (NASDAQ:ICLD), a leading provider of cloud networking orchestration and automation solutions and services, today announced that during the last few weeks of the calendar year it was awarded over $2.3 million in new contracts for professional and managed services, as well as for the deployment of InterCloud’s DPoD, hyper-converged private cloud solution. All of these services are expected to begin shortly.

Mark Munro, CEO of InterCloud Systems stated: "Our sales organization closed out its best year ever with several large new contracts and over $7M in cash. Throughout the last twelve months our revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth has been significant over 2014. Management made tremendous strides during 2015 in integration savings, new industry leading cloud products and services rollouts, and several significant contract wins with some of the world's largest carriers. Our pipeline of sales opportunities remains at an all time high of over $149,000,000 and we have maintained a significant backlog of business to carry us into an exciting 2016. Our plans are to continue to build our cloud sales pipeline and backlog of recurring revenue. We have seen a major shift in enterprise and carrier customers willingness to deploy private cloud solutions with SDN (software defined network) and NFV (network function virtualization) at their core. The momentum is far greater than it was at the beginning of 2015 and our team is prepared to take advantage of this growth market this year and beyond."
