MELVILLE, N.Y., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FalconStor Software, Inc.

FalconStor closed the year with over 30 percent sequential revenue growth in the fourth quarter.

McNiel, president and CEO of FalconStor Software. "With the Company's major outstanding legal issues resolved, FalconStor is moving forward aggressively with its suite of data protection solutions designed to help businesses modernize backup, automate disaster recovery, migrate data and optimize existing storage resources. We continue to address a lucrative market opportunity with the right products at the right time for an IT industry still adjusting to explosive data growth, virtualization, round-the-clock demand for data center services and the advent of Big Data and the cloud."

  • Product innovation in 2012 focused on deduplication with enhancements to the FalconStor ® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) solution, which was the Backup & Recovery Solution winner in the Network World Asia Information Management Awards.
  • Industry recognition for RecoverTracâ„¢ technology as a Best of VMworld 2012 award gold winner in the Business Continuity and Data Protection category demonstrates the importance of automating disaster recovery strategies and testing.
  • FalconStor ® Network Storage Server (NSS) VS Series HA Appliance received a silver medal in the Best Hardware: Appliance category in the 2012 Windows IT Pro 2012 Editors' Best Awards, highlighting the product's strategic importance, value to customers and competitive advantage within the storage virtualization, data migration and data protection markets.

Financials

For the year ended December 31, 2012, revenues decreased to $75.4 million, compared with $82.9 million for the same period a year ago. GAAP loss from operations for 2012 was $13.7 million, compared with an operating loss of $22.2 million for the same period a year ago. GAAP net loss for 2012 was $15.0 million, or $0.32 per share, compared with $23.4 million, or $0.50 per share, in 2011. The 2012 operating results include a net reduction of $0.3 million of investigation, litigation and settlement costs. The net reduction of $0.3 million resulted from the Company recording a receivable during 2012 for the recovery of $4.9 million of costs, including any settlements associated with the Class Action and Derivative suits and the reversal of previously accrued costs related to the government investigations of $1.7 million. These amounts were partially offset by $5.0 million for the settlement of the Class Action and $1.3 million of overall legal fees not recoverable through insurance. During the same period in 2011, the Company had recorded $10.3 million of costs associated with the then outstanding government investigations and related class actions, which was comprised of $2.8 million of legal fees and an accrual of $7.5 million for certain costs associated with the then outstanding resolution of the investigations.
