Dot Hill Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Balance Sheet:

The Company exited the second quarter of 2012 with cash and cash equivalents of $40.5 million compared to $46.5 million at the end of June 2011 and $41.4 million at the end of March 31, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 and 2012 Outlook:

The Company reiterated that it expected a weak economic environment in the second half of 2012 and into 2013 that could potentially subdue growth for companies in the IT space at large and also in the storage markets.

The Company is targeting third quarter 2012 non-GAAP net revenue in the range of $48 million to $53 million and a non-GAAP EPS in the range of $(0.04) per share to $0.01 per share in part as a result of continued investments in the launch preparations for new OEM customers. In addition, the Company updated its 2012 outlook established in March 2012 of non-GAAP net revenue of $205 million to $225 million and non-GAAP EPS of $0.02 to $0.08 to non-GAAP net revenue of $205 million to $215 million and non-GAAP EPS of $(0.02) to $0.04.

"While 2013 is starting to look quite exciting for us, given the economic outlook it is still too early to provide more granularity.  We will, however, provide you with more details on December 10 th at our Analyst Day," stated Hanif Jamal, chief financial officer, Dot Hill Systems. "We certainly expect good growth fueled by several company specific factors and given the operating leverage characteristics of our business model we expect this to give us a clear path to consistent non-GAAP profits."
