11 Days ago

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sphere 3D Corp. (NASDAQ: ANY), a company delivering containerization, virtualization, and data management solutions, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“The second quarter revenue was negatively impacted by our cash constraints and our move to new hardware suppliers for our HVE line of products. Despite the drop in revenue, we were able to reduce our net loss, quarter over quarter, through a reduction in our operating expenses in Q2,” said Peter Tassiopoulos, chief executive officer of Sphere3D, adding, “For the first 6 months of 2019, when compared to the same period in 2018, we were able to reduce our net loss by over 60% and will continue to look for opportunities to improve operating results.”

On November 13, 2018, the Company closed the divestiture of its Overland subsidiary and related business. The financial results of Overland for the second quarter and six months ended 2018 have been reflected in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations as discontinued operations. Results below exclude discontinued operations. Our results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019 were as follows:
