InterCloud Systems Inc (OTCMKTS:ICLD) shares have sizzled in 2017 rallying more than 170% on huge volume, much of this move in March. The company is in the hot, hot, hot Internet of Things (iOT)sub sector of technology. A closer look shows they participate in the Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) environments for the telecommunications industry through cloud solutions and professional services. InterCloud offers enterprise and service-provider customers the opportunity to adopt an operational expense model by outsourcing network deployment and management to InterCloud rather than the capital expense model that has dominated in recent decades in IT infrastructure management.
Mark Munro, CEO of InterCloud Systems stated: “We have announced previously that we have undertaken measures to reduce our operating expenditures, divest ourselves of non-core assets and strengthen our balance sheet. Notwithstanding these belt tightening measures, our subsidiaries continue to drive revenue and receive new contracts from some of the world’s largest service providers and enterprise customers.”
InterCloud Systems Inc (OTCMKTS:ICLD) CEO Mr. Munro continued: “We will be releasing our financials for the period ending December 31, 2016 next week. We believe that our cost cutting measures and recent debt reductions will help the Company present a stronger balance sheet and achieve a positive near term impact.”
The company has gone through a dramatic shift changing the internal structure of the shares and repositioning the company to compete in the changing use of the cloud. This is a unique model as companies realize they can outsource all aspects of managing the cloud.
