Business Wire

PRINCETON, N.J. -- September 16, 2013

Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ:DRAM) today reported its financial results for its
fiscal first quarter ended July 31, 2013. Revenues for the first quarter were
$7.4 million, which compares to $6.2 million in the previous quarter and $8.0
million for the comparable prior year period. The Company’s net loss for the
first quarter totaled $882,000, or $0.50 per share which compares to net loss
of $976,000, or $0.55 per share for the comparable prior year period. In the
first quarter of fiscal 2014 the Company recorded an expense of approximately
$110,000 for severance costs incurred in connection with a reduction in
workforce. In addition, the Company recorded a nonrecurring  expense of
$275,000 to fully reserve for the Shoreline Memory, Inc. promissory note which
was due on July 31, 2013. The loss adjusted for the nonrecurring item would
have been $607,000, compared to a loss of $976,000 in the prior year or
approximately a 38% reduction.

John H. Freeman, Dataram’s President and CEO commented, “We have made progress
in the first quarter with increased sales and the reduction of operating
expense of approximately 23%, without the effects of the nonrecurring expense.
Despite industry wide challenges, we continue to see signs of growth through
our new partnerships, new distribution channels and further development of our
RAMDisk software.”

AMD and Newegg both bundled and ran special offers for Radeon RAMDisk which
resulted in increased sales. Our inclusion in AMD’s Never Settle Forever
campaign, other campaigns, expansion of distribution through major r/e-tailors
and continued growth in commercial licenses which include annual renewal fees
create a strong foundation for RAMDisk growth and profitability.

Dataram continues to work closely with AMD in delivering technically superior
memory products for both consumer and commercial applications. We have also
identified and are jointly working with system builders and integrators which
can benefit from our memory products.

Mr. Freeman concluded, “The industry challenges remain but our cost
containment initiatives, experiences with our new partnerships and renewed
large company orders are making a positive contribution to Dataram and our
bottom line.”
