AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 --  Crossroads Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: CRDS), a global provider of data storage solutions, today
released preliminary unaudited financial information for its fiscal
second quarter ended April 30, 2013. The Company is announcing its
preliminary revenue in advance of its regularly scheduled release and
expects to release its full fiscal second quarter results and hold a
conference call on Friday, June 7, 2013. The Company does not intend
to pre-release its earnings in future quarters. 
Revenue for fiscal Q2 2013 is expected to be $2.7 million, a decrease

estimate constitutes forward-looking information and is subject to
risks and uncertainties, including possible adjustments to
preliminary operating results.  
Richard K. Coleman, Jr., recently appointed Interim President and CEO
at Crossroads Systems, said, "We are disappointed that second quarter
results fell short of expectations. Despite recent wins and a growing
pipeline of prospective customers, some StrongBox deals have taken
longer to close than expected. While our product is strong, and our
customer feedback is positive, we are fine-tuning our market entry
strategy to isolate opportunities for faster growth."
