FalconStor Software, Inc. announced financial results for its second quarter 2022, which ended on June 30, 2022.

Our shift to recurring revenue-based hybrid cloud data protection solutions continued to progress in the quarter as we secured our first several hybrid cloud customers under the IBM reseller relationship we announced on May 11, 2022,” said Todd Brooks, CEO. “IBM’s hybrid cloud push has been a centerpiece of its corporate strategy, as highlighted in its first and second quarter 2022 results. Through our expanding relationship with IBM, enterprises can now leverage new joint hybrid cloud solutions from FalconStor and IBM. These solutions are especially important to the tens of thousands of companies around the globe that leverage IBM i and AIX environments, as they now have the ability to securely backup and restore to the cloud, as well as migrate their IBM i and AIX workloads to IBM Power VS Cloud with secure backup and recovery on an on-going basis.”

Our aggressive focus on advancing critical hybrid cloud relationships and our efforts to realign to a subscription- and monthly consumption-based recurring revenue model continue to challenge our Y/Y revenue growth as 2FQ22 revenue was $2.4 million, compared to $3.3 million in 2FQ21. However, from a sequential quarter perspective, total revenue increased to $2.4 million, compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2022,” he stated. “To more closely align with our current quarterly revenue level, we decreased operating expenses Q/Q by 8.8% in 2FQ22, and are making additional expense adjustments this quarter. Our sales pipeline for 2FH22 is growing, especially as it relates to our hybrid cloud initiatives. As a result, we expect sequential Q/Q revenue to continue growing over the next two quarters.”
