PRESS RELEASE
GlassHouse Technologies, a global provider of cloud, virtualization, security and next generation data center consulting and managed services, today announced that based on current market conditions, it has chosen not to proceed with its planned initial public offering at this time. The company intends to withdraw its registration statement on Form S-1 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
