SHREWSBURY, N.J., May 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems, Inc. (the "Company" or "InterCloud") (Nasdaq:ICLD), a single source provider of end-to-end IT technology and next-generation network solutions to the service provider and corporate enterprise markets through professional services and cloud platforms, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

InterCloud reported first quarter 2014 revenues of $14.1 million and net income of $6.7 million. Basic Earnings per share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $0.70 per share. On a fully diluted basis, excluding any derivative gains, the loss per share was ($1.52).

The $14.1 million in gross revenues for InterCloud was contributed by our three reporting segments: Cloud and Managed Services; Applications and Infrastructure; and Professional Services; Our Cloud and Managed Services revenue totaled $5.3 million; Applications and Infrastructure revenue totaled $3.9 million; and Professional Services revenue totaled $4.9 million for the quarter.

Mark Munro, Chairman and CEO of InterCloud, stated, "Our first quarter results reflect the integration of our recently completed IPC-NY and RentVM acquisitions. InterCloud now offers a broad range of professional engineering and IT services, as well as cloud and managed services, which was our largest segment of operational revenues for the first quarter."

Mr. Munro continued, "We are experiencing significant growth opportunities across our segments as we continue to cross sell and take advantage of our end-to-end solutions capabilities.  As we grow, our corporate cost of operations will become a smaller percentage of our revenues.   We are very excited about the future for InterCloud."

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this press release regarding InterCloud that are not historical facts are forward- looking statements and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual future events or results to differ materially from such statements. Any such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, financial guidance, are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. It is routine for InterCloud's internal projections and expectations to change as the quarter and year progresses, and therefore it should be clearly understood that the internal projections and beliefs upon which InterCloud bases its expectations may change. Although these expectations may change, InterCloud is under no obligation to inform you if they do. Actual events or results may differ materially from those contained in the projections or forward-looking statements. Some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained herein include, without limitation: InterCloud's inability to integrate recent and future acquisitions, which would adversely affect InterCloud's business, financial condition, result of operations and prospects; the cancellation of master service agreements, from which InterCloud derives a significant portion of its revenue, which may be cancelled by customers on short notice, or which InterCloud may be unable to renew on favorable terms or at all; the inability of InterCloud to attract and retain key personnel and skilled labor, or if labor difficulties are encountered, InterCloud's ability to bid for and successfully complete contracts may be negatively impacted; risks related to InterCloud's failure to compete effectively within its highly competitive industry, especially with a variety of larger companies with greater resources, which could reduce the number of new contracts awarded to InterCloud or adversely affect InterCloud's market share and harm InterCloud's financial performance; risks related to InterCloud's history of losses and deficiencies in working capital and stockholders' equity, which may continue in the future, raising substantial doubts about InterCloud's ability to continue as a going concern; risks related to the identification of material weaknesses in InterCloud's internal control over financial reporting, and a lack of assurance that additional material weaknesses or significant deficiencies will not occur in the future, leading to the possibility that InterCloud may not be able to accurately report financial results, prevent fraud, or file periodic reports in a timely manner, which may cause investors to lose confidence in InterCloud's reported financial information and may lead to a decline in InterCloud's stock price; and InterCloud's substantial indebtedness, which could adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations and its ability to meet payment obligations. This list is intended to identify only certain of the principal factors that could cause actual results to differ from those discussed in the forward-looking statements.
