Qualstar Continues To Look At Strategic Options

Simi Valley-based Qualstar, the developer of data storage and high efficiency power supplies, says it continues to look at "strategic options" for the business, as it reported yet another quarter of declining revenues. According to Qualstar, it had a loss of $0.4 million on revenues of $2.2M for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. The company reported a net loss of $1.2 million for the year, on revenues of $9.4M. The company says it has been seeing competition in the data storage industry which has "create pressure" on maintaining market share, saying that "market headwinds" have been challenging the company. Qualstar had a major layoff in March of 2016, along with other cost cutting moves, which looked to have most stemmed its quarterly losses.
