08:25 EDTQTMQuantum, Starboard reach agreement on board composition
Quantum announced that it has entered into an agreement with Starboard Value LP and its affiliates regarding the membership and composition of Quantum's board. Under the agreement, Quantum will renominate Jeffrey Smith, CEO of Starboard, and two other current Starboard-recommended directors -- Louis DiNardo, president and CEO of Exar Corp., and Philip Black, former president and CEO of Nexsan Technologies -- for election at Quantum's 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Quantum will also nominate an additional Starboard-recommended director -- Dale Fuller, chairman of AVG Technologies N.V. -- for election as a successor to Michael Brown, who, as previously announced, is retiring from the board. Also as part of the agreement, Starboard -- which beneficially owns approximately 17% of the outstanding shares of Quantum's common stock, including shares underlying Quantum's convertible senior subordinated notes -- will vote all of its shares in favor of each of the Quantum board's nominees at the 2014 Annual Meeting and in accordance with the board's recommendation with respect to any other proposals being voted on at the Annual Meeting, unless Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. recommends otherwise regarding any such proposal. Starboard will also be subject to certain standstill provisions for a period ending prior to the 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. If Quantum does not achieve certain agreed upon objectives in its FY15 business plan, Starboard will have the right to add two additional directors to the board. Alternatively, if Quantum achieves all the agreed upon objectives, the standstill provisions of the agreement will remain in effect for a period ending prior to the 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

09:02 EDTQTMQuantum reports Q1 preliminary revenue $111M, consensus $128.39M
Quantum's scale-out storage and related service revenue grew year-over-year by approximately $10M, or 54%, and royalty revenue increased approximately $1M. However, this growth was offset by product and related service revenue declines of approximately $15M in branded tape automation, $7M in branded devices and media and $6M in OEM tape sales. DXi product and related service revenue was roughly flat year-over-year. Quantum believes the lower-than-expected total revenue was largely due to overall weakness in the general-purpose storage market, as also indicated by other companies' announcements over the last two weeks
