Dataram Reports Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Financial Results

PRINCETON, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAM) today reported its financial results for the three and six months ended October 31, 2012. Revenues for the three and six months ended October 31, 2012 were $7.0 million and $15.0 million, respectively, which compares to $10.4 million and $20.7 million for the comparable prior year periods. The Company incurred a net loss for the three months ended October 31, 2012 of $1.2 million, which compares to a net loss of $1.2 million for the comparable prior year period. For the six months ended October 31, 2012, the net loss totaled $2.2 million as compared to $2.0 million for the prior comparable period. The Company recorded a charge to cost of sales of approximately $220,000 in the three months ended October 31, 2012 completing the write down of XcelaSAN product inventory.

John H. Freeman, Dataram's president and CEO commented, "The economy and especially the semiconductor industry continued to be soft due to oversupply of raw materials and reduced customer infrastructure investment. Since the close of our second quarter on October 31, 2012 we have seen a stabilization and increase in pricing which can positively impact our memory business in for the balance of the fiscal year."

In addition to a healthier semiconductor industry, we expect the two agreements into which the Company entered last quarter will generate growth and profits for Dataram in 2013 and beyond. One with Shoreline Memory Inc. ("Shoreline") and the other with Advanced Micro Devices (News - Alert), Inc. ("AMD") for the purpose of expanding our customer base and product offerings. The Shoreline Agreement provides for Dataram to fulfill 50% of the orders Shoreline receives from its primary customers. The second agreement with AMD (News - Alert) provides for Dataram to develop and sell AMD licensed and branded versions of its RAMDisk software. AMD's Radeon™ RAMDisk will target the gaming enthusiast community. Management is unable to determine the extent that such agreements will generate revenues in the next two (2) quarters. However, the Company believes these agreements will provide new revenue sources and expanded markets for the Company's products.

Mr. Freeman concluded, "These recent agreements and other new opportunities we are currently pursuing should provide new sources of revenue, profit and growth for Dataram in 2013 and beyond. The experience, knowledge and assets we have gained from our current RAMDisk product, in the development of caching software and in solid state products are building a strong foundation for growth."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
