Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ:DRAM) today reported its financial results for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2014. Revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2014 were $7.6 million and $22.4 million, respectively, which compares to $6.4 million and $21.4 million for the comparable prior year periods. The Company incurred a net loss for the three months ended January 31, 2014 of $847,000, which includes a charge of $150,000 in the third quarter of the current year for a legal settlement provision. The current quarter loss compares to a net loss of $782,000 for the comparable prior year period. For the nine months ended January 31, 2014, the net loss totaled $2.1 million as compared to $3.0 million for the prior comparable period. The Company recorded a net loss per share for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2013 was $0.40 and $1.08 as compared to net lost in the prior comparable periods of $0.44 and $1.68.
John H. Freeman, Dataram’s president and CEO commented, “The Company continues to execute its plan of cost reduction and sales expansion. The twenty two percent sales increase over the same quarter of last year and slight increase over the previous quarter of this year is a result of our product expansion, increased sales of Advanced Micro Devices (“AMD”) Radeon Memory products and growth in our AMD relationship. We continue to work to expand the number of outlets for our AMD Radeon branded consumer and server memory.”
Mr. Freeman concluded, “On March 20, 2014 we completed the sale of 219,750 shares of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $583,000 to an institutional investor in a registered direct offering. In addition, certain institutional holders of warrants exercised their warrants for 86,100 shares of common stock for net proceeds of approximately $301,350. The net proceeds from these transactions will be used for general corporate purposes, development of new software products and continued expansion of our AMD business and relationship. These monies are providing a foundation for increased growth in sales and software.”

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and ex...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...
