- DRAM has guided for return to profitability for Fiscal 2016 – after 4 years of significant losses.
Highlights of fiscal 2016 guidance (to be reported September 14, 2015):
“In Q1 FY2016, the Company projects gross, operating revenues of between $7.2 to $7.4 million, and operating results between break-even and a net loss of $50,000.”
“For FY 2016, the Company projects gross, operating revenues of between $28.0 to $34.0 million, and operating result between a net loss of $100,000 and net operating profit of $250,000, in each case exclusive of the impact of one-time charges and events.”
Returning to break-even and profitability after 4 years of significant quarterly and yearly losses will cause the stock to gain significantly from its current ultra-low valuation.
In the company’s August 10, 2015 Fiscal 4Q 2016 earnings release, DRAM’s new Chairman and CEO Dave Moylan commented:
"2015 was a pivotal year in the Company's history. We entered FY2015 with great uncertainty and an uncertain future. With investor support and a new leadership team, Dataram implemented an aggressive financial and operational transformation of the Company in order to establish a strong foundation for profitable inorganic and organic growth. We re-focused our efforts to concentrate on what we do best, and have done extremely well since we incorporated in 1967 – delivering customized memory solutions into complex technical environments for our business customers around the globe. In the last eight months, we made many difficult and necessary decisions to ensure the Company remained viable and relevant. These efforts have resulted in quantifiable bottom line improvements; a leaner, more flexible workforce, who can better respond to market and customer needs; and a strategy designed to facilitate partnerships and development of M&A strategies. They have also afforded us optimum strategic flexibility. We have removed more than $3.5M in annual operating costs, with the full effect of these reductions beginning in June 2015. We are also recognizing advances in sales activity. With the business re-aligned, we are turning our focus to profitably and growing the business -- both organically and inorganically -- to drive the next stage of Dataram's evolution."
