SANZ Announces Preliminary Operating Results for Second Quarter 2006

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aug. 14, 2006— SAN Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: SANZ) reported revenue of $13.9 million and gross profit of $3.2 million for its quarter ending June 30, 2006. Net loss for the June 2006 quarter was $2.1 million and net loss available to common shareholders was $3.2 million (net loss per share of $0.03), and included a deemed dividend related to the beneficial conversion feature of convertible Series A preferred stock issued by SANZ in April and May of 2006. Excluding this item, net loss per share would have been $0.02.

Bob Ogden, SANZ' CFO, stated, "For the quarter, both revenue and gross profit were up when compared to the June 2005 quarter primarily as a result of strong performance in our Commercial Storage Solutions business. Our professional services revenue was only notionally higher compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to delayed starts on new projects in our Federal Storage Solutions business. Sales of software and services from our EarthWhere(TM) segment were down as compared to the 2005 quarter due to contract award delays on certain Department of Defense opportunities. Operating expenses for the June 2006 quarter increased from the June 2005 quarter primarily from absorbed temporary underutilization of Federal professional services staff and increased EarthWhere business and software development expenses to address specifically the Defense market sector."

SANZ' CEO, John Jenkins, noted, "We are pleased with the second consecutive quarter of improving performance from our Commercial Storage Solutions business and expect to see these trends continue through the balance of the year as we rollout some new additional service offerings directed at the data security market. With the recent release of new engagements, our Federal professional services business closed the June quarter at full utilization and we returned to a hiring mode. We entered the September quarter with a good pipeline of EarthWhere software and service opportunities that includes important new clients in our current prime target sector of the Defense and Intelligence communities. Some of this business has already closed, and we expect significant new orders from this sector over the next few weeks. We introduced our EarthWhere(TM) Pro Series at the ESRI user conference attended by nearly 14,000 in San Diego last week. This product series is designed to tightly integrate with the ESRI geospatial product framework. ESRI is the world leader in Geographic Information System (GIS) technology.
