Dataram Reports Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Annual Financial Results

Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAM) today reported its financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and year ended April 30, 2012. Revenues for the fourth quarter and twelve months of fiscal 2012 were $7.0 million and $36.1 million, respectively, which compares to $11.3 million and $46.8 million for the comparable prior year periods. The Company reported net income of $3.0 million for the fourth quarter as a result of the sale of patents which compares to a net loss of $0.8 million for the comparable prior year period. The twelve month net loss totaled $3.3 million versus $4.6 million for the prior comparable period.

John H. Freeman, Dataram’s President and CEO commented, “I am disappointed in this year’s revenue decline after two years of growth outpacing the industry. The primary factor impacting revenue was a 43% industry decline in material cost per gigabyte. I look forward to a return to growth this year.

“We were able to monetize our patent portfolio in the fourth quarter with the sale and license back of 13 patents which contributed $4.1M to our business. I am especially pleased with our patent sale since it was a result of a new and successful initiative Dataram started in 2009 to build a patent portfolio.

“In the third quarter we began to reallocate resources to our RAMDisk product. Since then RAMDisk has generated increasing interest and presence in the personal and commercial marketplace. It is a price performance leader in the virtual RAM drive software market and is being used in specialized commercial products.

“Our web sales tripled and now contribute over 12% of our business. We’ve invested in developing a unique web based quote to order app that results in Dataram being a more responsive and valued partner and supplier to our customers.”

Mr. Freeman concluded, “We are actively pursuing and working on opportunities that we expect will generate growth and profits for Dataram in 2013 and beyond. The experiences, knowledge and assets we have gained in the development and sales of caching software and solid state products are a strong foundation for growth. Clients and partners are pursuing us to work with them in these areas. We have secured financing and instituted expense containment actions that we believe are necessary to sustain the Company.”
