SHREWSBURY, N.J., April 07, 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 reported certain financial results for the full year 2015.

Financial Highlights:

  • The Company significantly improved liquidity with the sale of data storage assets in February 2016 for approximately $24 Million
  • Adjusted Gross Revenue jumped to $87.6 million (including $9.9 million of revenue from the assets sold in February 2016)

Mark Munro, Chairman and CEO of InterCloud, stated, “We are very pleased to report that InterCloud’s revenue for 2015 grew substantially over the same period in 2014. In addition to revenue growth, and equally important, we have increased our gross profit margins from the same period in 2014. After the sale of our data storage assets in February 2016, we have greater liquidity than the Company has ever had, and a business that still generated approximately $77.5 Million in revenue during 2015. The data storage assets accounted for $9.9 million in gross revenues during 2015 for an adjusted total of $87.5 million. Our goal is to take advantage of our cash liquidity to grow our cloud revenues with a focus on Dpod private cloud solutions, our Virtual Network Function (VNF) validation services, and drive sales of our NFVgrid SDN/NFV Orchestration platform. Our exciting new cloud products and services will help us achieve those goals in the near term. We continue to be bullish about our near term and long term outlooks. InterCloud is well positioned competitively with a disruptive portfolio of cloud orchestration products, an industry leading software development team, and an aggressive sales and engineering group. In the past three months we have seen a increase in demand for our cloud portfolio of services in both the enterprise and carrier markets.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release includes the following Non-GAAP financial measures; Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Profit.

We define Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Profit to include 2015 revenue of $9.9 million and gross profit of $8.2 million from a data storage subsidiary that sold all of its assets during February 2016. As a result, the Company will not be recognizing revenue and gross profit from these assets in 2016 and future years.

We believe that Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Profit are useful because they facilitate operating performance comparisons on period to period basis during 2015. Also please note, these adjustments are not instead or better than GAAP measures.
