Datalink is clarifying information included in its release dated February 16, 2012. The beginning of the first paragraph under “Outlook” read as follows: “With the strong start to the new year, Datalink’s first quarter guidance suggests a 17% to 24% year-over-year revenue increase in fiscal 2012. Based on the company’s current backlog and sales pipeline, the company projects revenues of $108 million to $116 million for Q1 2012 compared to $85.7 million for Q1 2011.” The beginning of the first paragraph under “Outlook” should instead read as follows: “Based on the company’s current backlog and sales pipeline, it projects revenues of $108 million to $116 million for the first quarter of 2012, which represents a 26% to 35% increase, respectively, over revenues of $85.7 million for the first quarter of 2011.”
