SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), a trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2013 second quarter ended December 31, 2012.

"During the second fiscal quarter, we experienced strong demand, compared to the preceding quarter, which was reflected in our unit sales across all product lines including a 34 percent increase in SnapServer, a 30 percent increase in NEO Tape Libraries, and a 21 percent increase in SnapSAN," said Eric Kelly, President and CEO of Overland Storage. "In addition, we achieved 42 percent sequential revenue growth in Europe. With the release of our new clustered NAS product, SnapScale X2™, last October, we have significantly expanded our total addressable market, and we continue to see a growing pipeline of new primary storage opportunities generated by our SnapSAN and SnapScale X2 clustered NAS solutions. In addition, we were pleased to announce today a $14.25 million financing comprised of convertible notes and equity. We plan to use this additional capital to fund further growth and capitalize on the substantial opportunities we see ahead."

Patent Litigation:
Based on the United States International Trade Commission's (ITC) evaluation of its '581 mail slot patent, Overland filed a petition on November 8, 2012 arguing that claims 10, 12 and 16 meet the new definition of "linear array" put forward by the Commission, and thus the ITC now should decide for the first time whether the BDT products include all the other elements of these claims. If the ITC remands the '581 infringement issue on this basis, the Administrative Law Judge could find BDT's products infringe claims 10, 12 and 16, which Overland believes would result in BDT no longer being allowed to ship products with mail slots into the United States.

Overland reported on October 26, 2012 that the ITC released a Notice of Commission Decision in the infringement action filed by Overland Storage against IBM, Dell and BDT. Overland has previously reported that its ITC and District Court actions against IBM and Dell have been resolved by settlement. The Notice of Commission Decision makes several key findings regarding Overland Storage's U.S. Patent No. 6,328,766, which relates to partitioning media elements in automated media devices, and its U.S. Patent No. 6,353,581, which relates to the "mail slot" feature in automated media devices. Overland views this decision by the full Commission as beneficial to pursuing patent suits in civil court and another step in the process of proving that BDT and others in the data storage industry have been using Overland's intellectual property without permission. The company's infringement case against BDT and its affiliates continues and Overland plans to pursue monetary damages against BDT in District Court.
