STEC Responds To Balch Hill And Potomac Capital's Open Letter To STEC's Shareholders

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, statements concerning or related to matters to be presented at STEC's 2013 annual meeting of shareholders. Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and involve inherent risks and uncertainties, including factors that could delay, divert or change any of them, and could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from current expectations. Although STEC believes that the forward-looking statements contained in this release are reasonable, it can give no assurance that its expectations will be fulfilled. Additional important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements are detailed in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission made from time to time by STEC, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and its Current Reports on Form 8-K. Special attention is directed to the portions of those documents entitled "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." The information contained in this press release is a statement of STEC's present intention, belief or expectation. STEC may change its intention, belief, or expectation, at any time and without notice, based upon any changes in such factors, in STEC's assumptions or otherwise. Except as required by law, STEC undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date hereof, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Additional Information

When completed, a proxy statement and a form of proxy will be mailed to shareholders.  STEC's shareholders are urged to read the proxy statement when available because it will contain important information.
