InterCloud Secures Purchase Orders for Software Defined Networking (SDN) Virtual Network Function Validation Services Valued at Over $4.0 Million in annualized revenue

SHREWSBURY, N.J., June 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICLD) a leading provider of cloud networking orchestration and automation solutions and services, announced today that it received over $4.0 million in purchase orders since the beginning of 2016 for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Virtual Network Function (VNF) Validation services for a Global networking company. The work involves SDN training, SDN integration services and the utilization of InterCloud’s state of the art, multi-vendor virtual network function validation services platform, NFVGrid.

Mark Munro, CEO of InterCloud Systems stated: “This is one of the most significant announcements InterCloud has ever released. InterCloud is now an active participant in complex multi-vendor SDN deployments. InterCloud is not only generating new revenue around SDN and VNF validation but more importantly we are gaining incredibly valuable experience and knowledge in this early stage SDN market expansion. We believe this experience will give us a competitive advantage as more carriers and enterprise customers begin to migrate their networks to the virtualized world of SDN.”

Mark Munro continued: “InterCloud is presently focused on the process of VNF validation for Software Defined Networks. It is our belief that this particular segment of the market will offer InterCloud tremendous growth opportunities. Every single virtual firewall, virtual router, virtual load balancer and other virtual network functions must be validated on its own as well as in complex multi-vendor use cases. InterCloud is one of the only companies offering any automation in this arena and it is our objective to be a market leader in this capability over the next several years.”

Separately, InterCloud filed its 10Q for the first quarter of 2016. Total revenue for the first quarter of 2016, after reflecting the sale of the data storage assets of the Company, was over $17 Million and the Company balance sheet reflects over $25 Million in cash (between cash on hand and restricted cash).

Mr. Munro added: “We became current on our filings with our 10Q filing. Our first quarter was strong and our second quarter has seen a steady influx of new business and revenue growth. We are meeting or exceeding our goals of our business segments and we expect to file our 10Q for the second quarter timely.”
