Overland Storage Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), a trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.

"We made progress in fiscal 2013 with the growth of our new branded products, including our SnapServer DX series, which grew more than 60% year-over-year," said Eric Kelly, President and CEO of Overland Storage. "The positive market traction we are seeing with our new branded products and services helped drive gross margin improvement in fiscal 2013 and we expect these branded products to continue to contribute to growth and gross margin improvement in the new fiscal year.

"Our recently announced partnership with Sphere 3D will enable us to introduce a new product line this fiscal year designed to enable enterprises and individuals to securely access applications with full functionality from their mobile devices. The solutions will be delivered as an appliance or as a cloud offering. We expect these new product offerings to give mobile business users the full functionality of software programs or applications on any device, anywhere, anytime, eliminating the application limitations and reducing data management and security problems created by the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon. 

"We are excited about the new market opportunities created by this new product line, and opportunities to drive additional sales of our branded storage products through our partnership with Sphere 3D, which includes a supplier agreement under which they will procure their cloud infrastructure solutions from Overland, and a licensing agreement giving us the rights to sell, distribute and license their technology to the commercial market worldwide."
