SHREWSBURY, N.J., Aug. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (the "Company" or "InterCloud") (Nasdaq:ICLD), a leading provider of cloud networking orchestration and automation solutions and services, today reported financial results for the second quarter 2016.

2nd Quarter and 6 Months Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 16% year-over-year to $22.6 million
  • Gross Profit increased 19% year-over-year to $5.2 million
  • Gross Profit Margin at 23% for the 2nd quarter of 2016 compared to 22% in 2015

Mark Munro, Chairman and CEO of InterCloud, stated, “Notwithstanding the sale of our data storage assets during the first quarter of 2016, we experienced revenue growth over the comparable period in 2015.  We have also undertaken measures to reduce our operating expenditures, with reductions in SG&A expenses while building on our industry leading automated Software Defined Networking (SDN) solutions and professional services division.  Our goal is to continue to cut costs by as much as $5 million annually, restructure our debt, divest ourselves of non-core assets and develop higher margin revenue around SDN and Network Function Virtualization.”

Second Quarter of 2016 Financial Results:

Revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 increased by 16% to $22.6 million, compared to $19.6 million for the second quarter of 2015. This was primarily the result of increased revenue from our professional services operating segment offset by a decrease in our managed services segment.

The gross profit percentage was 23% during the second quarter of 2016, compared to 22% for the comparable period in 2015.  Gross profit increased to $5.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $4.4 million in 2015.  Increases in gross profit in our professional services segment were offset by decreases in our other segments.  The gross profit percentage in the professional services segment was 25% in the second quarter of 2016.

The Company had a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(13.4) million for the second quarter of 2016 compared to a net loss of $(14.5) million for the comparable period of 2015.  The decrease in net loss during the second quarter of 2016 compared to the comparable period of 2015 resulted from an increase in increase in gross profit of $800 thousand and a decrease in salaries and wages and SG&A expense of $1.8 million.  Additionally, we had a net decrease in losses from derivative instruments, conversion of debt, extinguishment of debt and exchange of shares of $1.3 million.  These decreases were offset by an increase in interest expense of $1.6 million.  Salaries and wages includes non-cash stock compensation expense of $600 thousand for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $5.2 million for the comparable period of 2015.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2016 Financial Results:

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2016 increased by 6% to $40.2 million, compared to $37.8 million for 2015. This was the result of increased revenue from our professional services and application and infrastructure business segments offset by a decline in our managed services segment.

Gross profit was 24% for the six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to 25% for the comparable period in 2015.  Gross profit increased to $9.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $9.5 million in 2015.  Increases in gross profit in our professional services segment were offset by decreases in our other segments.  The gross profit percentage in the professional services segment was 24% for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

The Company had a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $(17.7) million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to a net loss of $(24.8) million for the comparable period of 2015.  The decrease in net loss during the second quarter of 2016 compared to the comparable period of 2015 resulted from a decrease in salaries and wages and SG&A expense of $2.3 million.  Additionally, we had a net decrease in losses from derivative instruments, conversion of debt, extinguishment of debt, modification of debt and exchange of shares of $6.9 million.  These decreases were offset by an increase in interest expense of $3.1 million.  Salaries and wages includes non-cash stock compensation expense of $1.3 million for the six months  ended June 30, 2016 compared to $6.4 million for the comparable period of 2015.
