ViewCast Reports 2013 First Quarter Results

Direct Investment of $550,000 Made by Current ViewCast Investor; Q1 Expenses in Check – OPEX Cut by Approximately 20%

PLANO, Texas, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST), a developer of industry-leading solutions for the capture and streaming of video over enterprise, broadband and mobile networks, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The Company reported net sales of $2.4 million in the first quarter 2013 compared to $3.4 million in the prior year period. On-going operational expense controls remained in place during the quarter, as the loss was similar to the year-earlier period despite the lighter revenue levels.

Chief Executive Officer John Hammock said, "Like many capital equipment companies, we started the year slowly, which we attribute to typical seasonality and the absence of orders from our former primary OEM customer who placed a very large order in the 2012 first quarter. But we are enthusiastic about the second half of the year, when our new products have had time to gain traction and the results of our strategic sales initiatives have taken hold. We are seeing important market acceptance of our popular Osprey® product lines, which we have enhanced with several new technological advances. In the past 12 months, we have also released six new products in our Niagara® appliance product line, which we expect to generate growth as the year progresses. Our goal is to build momentum throughout 2013 and finish the year with a strong second half."
