HERNDON, Va., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SteelCloud, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SCLD), a leading developer of mobility computing appliance solutions, today announced financial results for its 2009 fiscal year which ended October 31, 2009.

Annual revenues from continuing operations decreased 67% to approximately $1.5 million during fiscal 2009 as compared with approximately $4.6 million during fiscal 2008.  The net loss from continuing operations was approximately ($3,217,000) for fiscal 2009 compared to a net loss from continuing operations of approximately ($3,442,000) for fiscal 2008.  Net loss from discontinued operations was approximately ($520,000) in fiscal 2009 compared to income from discontinued operations of approximately $682,000 in fiscal 2008.

"Significant effort was spent in 2009 refocusing the Company in order to achieve the full potential of our BlackBerry offerings," said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud's President and CEO.  "SteelCloud faced significant economic and financial challenges in 2009, many of which SteelCloud still faces today, including the need to raise additional capital.  That given, we made remarkable progress in reducing overhead and laying a foundation for future growth and profitability.  We released a significantly upgraded SteelWorks product, established new partnerships and channels, and entered the international arena -- an area which we believe is ripe for growth for mobility technology.  We believe that we are  beginning to establish a reliable recurring revenue stream that will stabilize the Company's future results."
