The Company’s operations may be affected by the recent and ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) which in March 2020, was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. The ultimate disruption which may be caused by the outbreak is uncertain; however, it may result in a material adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, operations and cash flows. Possible areas that may be affected include, but are not limited to, disruption to the Company’s customers and revenue, labor workforce, inability of customers to pay outstanding accounts receivable due and owing to the Company as they limit or shut down their businesses,  customers seeking relief or  extended payment plans relating to accounts receivable due and owing to the Company, unavailability of products and supplies used in operations, and the decline in value of assets held by the Company, including property and equipment.

 

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2021, the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.  These results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

The financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and consequently have been condensed and do not include all of the disclosures normally made in an Annual Report on Form 10-K.  The December 31, 2020 balance sheet included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K. Accordingly, the financial statements included herein should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the SEC on March 25, 2021.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of SilverSun and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. All significant inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated in consolidation.

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates. 

 

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is the excess of acquisition cost of an acquired entity over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized but tested for impairment annually or whenever indicators of impairment exist. These indicators may include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, sale or disposition of a significant portion of the business or other factors. No impairment losses were identified or recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

Capitalization of proprietary developed software

 

Software development costs are accounted for in accordance with ASC 985-20, Software Costs of Software to be Sold, Leased or Marketed. Costs associated with the planning and designing phase of software development are expensed as incurred. Once technological feasibility has been determined, a portion of the costs incurred in development, including coding, testing and quality assurance, are capitalized until available for general release to clients, and subsequently reported at the lower of unamortized cost or net realizable value. Amortization is calculated on a solution-by-solution basis and is over the estimated economic life of the software. Amortization commences when a solution is available for general release to clients.

 

Business Combinations

 

We account for business combinations under the acquisition method of accounting. This method requires the recording of acquired assets and assumed liabilities at their acquisition date fair values. The excess of the purchase price over the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed is recorded as goodwill. Results of operations related to business combinations are included prospectively beginning with the date of acquisition and transaction costs related to business combinations are recorded within SG&A.

 

Definite Lived Intangible Assets and Long-lived Assets

 

Purchased intangible assets are recorded at fair value using an independent valuation at the date of acquisition and are amortized over the useful lives of the asset using the straight-line amortization method. 

 

The Company assesses potential impairment of its intangible assets and other long-lived assets when there is evidence that recent events or changes in circumstances have made recovery of an asset’s carrying value unlikely. Factors the Company considers important, which may cause impairment include, among others, significant changes in the manner of use of the acquired asset, negative industry or economic trends, and significant underperformance relative to historical or projected operating results. No impairment losses were identified or recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. 

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board “FASB” issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606 which superseded nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP. The core principle of Topic 606 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. Topic 606 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, it is possible more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing GAAP, including identifying performance obligations in the contract, estimating the amount of variable consideration to include in the transaction price and allocating the transaction price to each separate performance obligation, among others. Topic 606 also provides guidance on the recognition of costs related to obtaining customer contracts.

 

With the adoption of ASC 606, the Company has elected the significant financing component practical expedient.  In determining the transaction price, the Company does not adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component as the Company expects, at contract inception, that the period between when the entity transfers a promised good or service to a customer and when the customer pays for that good or service will be one year or less.

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Software product revenue is recognized when the product is delivered to the customer and the Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled.

 

Service revenue is recognized when the professional consulting, maintenance or other ancillary services are provided to the customer.

 

Shipping and handling costs charged to customers are classified as revenue, and the shipping and handling costs incurred are included in cost of revenues.

 

Components of revenue:

    $ 10,879,468     $ 10,079,524  

Unbilled Services

 

The Company recognizes revenue on its professional services as those services are performed. Unbilled services (contract assets) represent the revenue recognized but not yet invoiced.

 

Deferred Revenues

 

Deferred revenues consist of maintenance on proprietary products (contract liabilities), customer telephone support services (contract liabilities) and deposits for future consulting services which will be earned as such services are performed over the contractual or stated period, which generally ranges from three to twelve months. As of March 31, 2021, there was $180,847 in deferred maintenance, $435,741 in deferred support services, and $1,958,838, in deposits for future consulting services. As of December 31, 2020, there was $167,267 in deferred maintenance, $308,343 in deferred support services, and $1,563,631 in deposits for future consulting services.

 

Commissions

 

Sales commissions relating to service revenues are considered incremental and recoverable costs of obtaining a project with our customer. These commissions are calculated based on estimated revenue to be generated over the life of the project.  These costs are deferred and expensed as the service revenue is earned.  Commission expense is included in selling and marketing expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company estimates that the fair value of all financial instruments at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, as defined in Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 825 “Financial Instruments”, does not differ materially, except for the items discussed below, from the aggregate carrying values of its financial instruments recorded in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 for cash, accounts receivable, and accounts payable approximate the fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments.  Each reporting period we evaluate market conditions including available interest rates, credit spreads relative to our credit rating and liquidity in estimating the fair value of our debt. After considering such market conditions, we estimate that the fair value of debt approximates its carrying value.

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Leases

 

The Company accounts for its leases in accordance with ASC 842 Leases. The Company leases office space and equipment. The Company concludes on whether an arrangement is a lease at inception. This determination as to whether an arrangement contains a lease is based on an assessment as to whether a contract conveys the right to the Company to control the use of identified property, plant or equipment for period of time in exchange for consideration. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. The Company recognizes these lease expenses on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

The Company has assessed its contracts and concluded that its leases consist of finance and operating leases. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets, current portion of operating lease liabilities, and operating lease liabilities in the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

ROU assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company determines an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The incremental borrowing rate represents a significant judgment that is based on an analysis of the Company’s credit rating, country risk, treasury and corporate bond yields, as well as comparison to the Company’s borrowing rate on its most recent loan. The Company uses the implicit rate when readily determinable. The operating lease ROU asset also includes any lease payments made and excludes lease incentives. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company has lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, which are generally accounted for separately.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to federally insured limits. At times balances may exceed FDIC insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts.

 

Concentrations

 

The Company maintains its cash with various institutions, which exceed federally insured limits throughout the year.  At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had cash on deposit of $8,458,344 and $5,900,593, respectively, in excess of the federally insured limits of $250,000.

 

As of March 31, 2021, one customer represented 14% of the total accounts receivable and unbilled services. As of December 31, 2020, no one customer represented more than 10% of the total accounts receivable and unbilled services. 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company’s top ten customers accounted for 14% ($1,499,790) and 14% ($1,445,088), respectively, of total revenues.  The Company does not rely on any one specific customer for any significant portion of its revenue.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, purchases from one supplier through a “channel partner” agreement were approximately 15% and 16% of cost of revenues, respectively.  This channel partner agreement is for a one-year term and automatically renews for an additional one-year term on the anniversary of the agreements effective date.

 

As of March 31, 2021, two suppliers represented approximately 25% of total accounts payable. For the year ended December 31, 2020 two suppliers represented approximately 39% of accounts payable.

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of accounts receivable and cash.  As of March 31, 2021, the Company believes it has no significant risk related to its concentration of accounts receivable.

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable consist primarily of invoices for maintenance and professional services. Full payment for software ordered by customers is primarily due in advance of ordering from the software supplier. Payments for maintenance and support plan renewals are due before the beginning of the maintenance period. Terms under our professional service agreements are generally 50% due in advance and the balance on completion of the services.

 

The Company maintains an allowance for bad debt estimated by considering a number of factors, including the length of time the amounts are past due, the Company’s previous loss history and the customer’s current ability to pay its obligations.  Accounts are written off against the allowance when deemed uncollectable.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation and amortization.  Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based upon the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally three to seven years.  Maintenance and repairs that do not materially add to the value of the equipment nor appreciably prolong its life are charged to expense as incurred.

 

When assets are retired or otherwise disposed of, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and the resulting gain or loss is included in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes, as well as net operating loss carryforwards. Based on ASU 2015-17, all deferred tax assets or liabilities are classified as long-term. Valuation allowances are established against deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates or laws is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

The Company has federal net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards which are subject to limitations under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code.

 

The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions. Tax years 2017 to 2020 remain open to examination for both the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions.

 

There were no liabilities for uncertain tax positions at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

 

Fair Value Measurement

 

The accounting standards define fair value and establish a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use on unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. The hierarchy is as follows:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.

 

Level 2: Observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted on active markets but corroborated by market data.

 

Level 3: Unobservable inputs are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs. 

 

The Company’s goodwill, intangibles and lease obligations are measured at fair-value on a non-recurring basis using Level 3 inputs, as discussed in Notes 5 and 10.

Stock-Based Compensation

 

Compensation expense related to share-based transactions, including employee stock options, is measured and recognized in the financial statements based on a determination of the fair value. The grant date fair value is determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton (“Black-Scholes”) pricing model. For employee stock options, the Company recognizes expense over the requisite service period on a straight-line basis (generally the vesting period of the equity grant). The Company’s option pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected stock price volatility and expected term. Any changes in these highly subjective assumptions significantly impact stock-based compensation expense.

 

Recently Adopted Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13 Financial Instruments -Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Statements.  The amendment in this update replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses on instruments within its scope, including trade receivables. This was adopted on January 1, 2021 and did not have a significant impact on our financial position and results of operations.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes - simplifying the accounting for income taxes (Topic 740), which is meant to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740, Income Taxes.  The amendment also improves consistent application and simplify GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance.  This was adopted on January 1, 2021 and did not have a significant impact on our financial position and results of operations.

 

Recent Authoritative Pronouncements

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). The update simplifies the accounting for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock by reducing the number of accounting models and limiting the number of embedded conversion features separately recognized from the primary contract. The guidance also includes targeted improvements to the disclosures for convertible instruments and earnings per share. ASU 2020-06 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company is evaluating the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

 

No other recently issued accounting pronouncements had or are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3 NET INCOME (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE 

 

The Company’s basic income (loss) per common share is based on net income (loss) for the relevant period, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted income per common share is based on net income, divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, including common share equivalents, such as outstanding option and warrants to the extent they are dilutive.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the average market prices for the periods ended are less than the exercise price of all the outstanding stock options, therefore, the inclusion of the stock options would be anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, since the effect of common stock equivalents is anti-dilutive with respect to losses, the convertible promissory notes have also been excluded from the Company’s computation of net loss per common share for continuing operations, therefore, basic and diluted net loss per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are the same. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 since the convertible promissory notes have been converted into common stock, they have been excluded in the Company’s computation of net income (loss) per common share.

At the time SWK applied for the PPP Loan, we believed that it qualified to receive funds pursuant to the then published PPP qualification and certification requirements. On April 23, 2020, the SBA, in consultation with the Department of Treasury, issued new guidance that creates uncertainty regarding the qualification requirements for a PPP Loan (the “New Guidance”). Out of an abundance of caution and in light of the New Guidance, SWK determined to pay off the entire amount of the PPP Loan. Accordingly, the PPP Loan was paid in full to the Lender on May 18, 2020, resulting in the full satisfaction of the Note. Under the terms of the PPP Loan, SWK had the right to repay the Note without penalty.

NOTE 8 OPERATING LEASE LIABILITY

 

The Company leases office space in nine different locations with monthly payments ranging from $744 to $10,279 which expire at various dates through April 2025. The Company also leases equipment with a monthly payment of $10,279 which expires February 2024.

 

The Company's leases generally do not provide an implicit rate, and therefore the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate as the discount rate when measuring operating lease liabilities. The incremental borrowing rate represents an estimate of the interest rate the Company would incur at lease commencement to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments on a collateralized basis over the term of a lease. The Company used incremental borrowing rates as of January 1, 2019 for operating leases that commenced prior to that date.

 

The Company's weighted average remaining lease term and weighted average discount rate for operating leases as of March 31, 2021 are as follows:

The repurchase program may be extended, suspended, or discontinued at any time. The Company expects to finance the program from existing cash resources.  As of March 31, 2021, no repurchases have been made.

 

Stock Options

 

The Company adopted the 2019 Equity and Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan”) to order provide long-term incentives for employees and non-employees to contribute to the growth of the Company and attain specific performance goals.

Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of Common Stock. The expected life of the options granted represents the period of time from date of grant to expiration. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield in effect at the time of grant. On March 29, 2021, 99,990 stock options were granted with an exercise price of $6.53 per option and have a five-year term with a two-year vesting period at 50% per annum.

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements.  Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, the Company does not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 

Our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”).

We believe that the estimates, judgments and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments and assumptions are made.  These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Our consolidated financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result.  The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report.

 

Overview

 

The Company is engaged in providing transformational business management applications and technologies and professional consulting services to small and medium size companies, primarily in the manufacturing, distribution and service industries.  

 

We are executing a multi-pronged business strategy centered on cloud-based products, services, recurring revenue, customer retention and on rapidly increasing the size of our installed customer base. The growth of our customer base is accomplished via our traditional marketing programs and acquisitions. After a customer is secured, our strategy is to up-sell and cross-sell, providing the customer with advanced technologies and third-party add-ons that help them digitally transform their business. These add-on products could include application hosting, cybersecurity, warehouse management, human capital management, payment automation, sales tax compliance or any number of other products or services that we represent. Many of these incremental products and services are billed on a subscription basis, often paying monthly for the service, which increases our monthly recurring revenue (“MRR”). This strategy increases the average revenue per customer, which facilitates our continued growth, and reduces our cost of customer acquisition, which enhances our profitability profile.

 

We are a business application, technology and consulting company providing strategies and solutions to meet our clients’ information, technology and business management needs. Our services and technologies enable customers to manage, protect and monetize their enterprise assets whether on-premise or in the cloud. As a value-added reseller of business application software, we offer solutions for accounting and business management, financial reporting, Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”), Human Capital Management (“HCM”), Warehouse Management Systems (“WMS”), Customer Relationship Management (“CRM”), and Business Intelligence (“BI”). Additionally, we have our own development staff building software solutions for various ERP enhancements. Our value-added services focus on consulting and professional services, specialized programming, training, and technical support. We have a dedicated Information Technology (“IT”) network services practice that provides managed services, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, cybersecurity, application hosting, disaster recovery, business continuity, cloud and other services. Our customers are nationwide, with concentrations in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area, Arizona, Southern California, North Carolina, Washington, Oregon and Illinois.

We develop and resell a variety of add-on solutions to all our ERP and accounting packages that help customize the installation to our customers’ needs and streamline their operations.

 

Value-Added Services for ERP 

 

We go beyond simply reselling software packages; we have a consulting and professional services organization that manages the process as we move from the sales stage into implementation, go live, and production. We work inside our customers’ organizations to ensure all software and IT solutions are enhancing their business needs. A significant portion of our services revenue comes from continuing to work with existing customers as their business needs change, upgrading from one version of software to another, or providing additional software solutions to help them manage their business and grow their revenue. We have a dedicated help desk team that fields hundreds of calls every week. Our custom programming department builds specialized software packages as well as “off the shelf” enhancements and time and billing software.

Item 2.  Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued).

 

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021 the Company continued to expand its customer base, which prior to Covid-19 we believed would provide a basis for future growth. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, revenues increased 7.9% as compared to the same period in the prior year, and net income increased to $354,679 as compared to a net loss of $292,155 for the same period last year.  The Company continues to monitor the Covid-19 situation as it pertains to the disruption of our business and growth in future quarters and will take steps, if necessary, to establish mitigation strategies in order to try and minimize risk of any potential downturn for shareholders as well the health, safety and wellbeing of its employees and customers.

 

Revenues

 

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $799,944 (7.9%) to $10,879,468 as compared to $10,079,524 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The increase for the three months ended March 31, 2021, is attributed to the increase in software revenue and commission income as well as increases in revenues for managed services and application hosting.

 

Software sales increased $234,840 (13.3%) to $2,004,011 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $1,769,171 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 due to an overall increase in business as we continue to penetrate the market.

 

Service revenue increased by $565,104 (6.8%) to $8,875,457 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $8,310,353 for the same period in 2020. This increase is mainly attributed to increases managed services and application hosting as we continue to focus in this area due to the expertise and customers acquired in our acquisitions.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2021 increased $894,327 (23.2%) to $4,746,537 as compared to $3,852,210 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the overall gross profit percentage was 43.6% as compared to 38.2% for the period ended March 31, 2020.

 

The gross profit attributed to software sales increased $214,178 (33.5%) to $853,957 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $639,779 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase is due to sales of software with higher gross profits and the increase in revenues. 

 

The gross profit attributed to services increased $680,149 (21.2%,) to $3,892,580 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $3,212,431 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase is attributed to revenue increases in managed services and application hosting, which provide for higher profit margins, and increases in commission and maintenance revenue for the period.

 

Operating Expenses 

 

Selling and marketing expenses decreased $222,016 (11.4%) to $1,719,308 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 from $1,941,324 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This decrease is primarily due to lower travel and entertainment expense and reduced attendance at conferences and trade shows as we were still doing some travel in the first quarter of 2020 in addition to a slight reduction in payroll related expenses as a result departmental changes for various employees, thereby reducing salary and benefit expense. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in online advertising expenses.

 

General and administrative expenses increased $208,777 (9.8%) to $2,434,918 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $2,126,141 for the three months ending March 31, 2020. This is primarily as a result of increases in payroll related expenses related to both additional personnel and departmental changes for various employees, which increased salary and benefit expense. These increases were partially offset by lower travel and entertainment expenses.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense increased $21,510 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $198,046 as compared to $176,536 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase is primarily due to the additional amortization of intangible assets related to the new acquisitions.

 

Income (loss) from operations

 

As a result of the above, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had income from operations of $493,273 as compared to a loss from operations of $395,190 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Item 2.  Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued).

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The negative impact of Covid-19 on the economy creates tremendous uncertainty for the Company in the coming months and quarters. While our Company has not been significantly impacted as a result of this uncertainty, the potential negative impact on our business, in the future, is impossible to determine at this point, although it is likely that we could suffer negative consequences as many companies go out of business or decrease their technology spending. 

 

The Company currently has no line of credit or other credit facility with any lender.

 

As such, we need to rely on our own limited resources to weather any economic downturn. Our competitors, almost all of whom are privately held, were able to avail themselves of the PPP program, which may make it more difficult for the Company to compete in the marketplace. Management will continue to monitor developments, explore various cost-cutting measures, and explore other sources of funding, but there is no guarantee we will be successful in doing so.

 

We are currently seeking additional operating income opportunities through potential acquisitions or investments. Such acquisitions or investments may consume cash reserves or require additional cash or equity.  Our working capital and additional funding requirements will depend upon numerous factors, including: (i) strategic acquisitions or investments; (ii) an increase to current company personnel; (iii) the level of resources that we devote to sales and marketing capabilities; (iv) technological advances; and (v) the activities of competitors.

 

In February 2021, the Company received net proceeds of $3,382,352, excluding legal expenses, from the sale of 393,300 of common stock under its Registration Statement on Form S-3 and the previously disclosed At Market Issuance Sales Agreement.

 

In addition to developing new products, obtaining new customers and increasing sales to existing customers, management plans to increase its business and profitability by entering into collaboration agreements, buying assets, and acquiring companies in the business software and information technology consulting and other markets with solid revenue streams and established customer bases that generate positive cash flow.

 

On April 1, 2021, the Company acquired certain assets of CT-Solution, Inc. (“CTS”) pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement.  In consideration for the acquired assets, the Company issued a promissory note to CTS in the principal aggregate amount of $130,000 (the CTS Note”).  The CTS Note is due in 36 months from the closing date and bears interest at a rate of two (2%) percent per annum. Monthly payments including interest are $3,724.

 

In April 2021, the Company entered into the “2021 At Market Agreement with H.C wainwright & Co. (the “Sales Agent”) under which the Company may issue and sell shares of its common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $3,308,842 from time to time through the Sales Agent. Sales of the Company’s common stock through the Sales Agent, if any, will be made by any method that is deemed an “at the market” offering as defined by the SEC. The Company will pay to the Sales Agent a commission rate equal to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of any shares of common stock sold through the Sales Agent under the 2021 At Market Agreement.

 

Shares of common stock sold under the 2021 At Market Agreement are made pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-249238), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 2, 2020, as amended, and declared effective on October 23, 2020 (the “2020 Registration Statement”), the prospectus  included in the 2020 Registration Statement and the related prospectus supplement dated February 26, 2021. No shares have been sold pursuant to the 2021 At Market Agreement.

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company has $725,416 notes outstanding from acquisitions occurring between 2019 and 2020. Future payments on these notes are as follows:

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had a net increase in cash of $2,760,720.  The Company’s principal sources and uses of funds were as follows:

 

Cash provided used in operating activities

 

Operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 used cash of $500,461 as compared to using cash of $296,665 for the same period in 2020. This increase in cash used is primarily due to increases in unbilled services, prepaid expenses and other current assets and deferred revenues, offset partially by the increase in operating income for the period.

Item 2.  Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued).

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources (continued)

 

Cash provided by investing activities

 

Investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 provided cash of $-0- as compared to $527,988 for the same period in 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, escrowed proceeds of $575,000 were received from the sale of the EDI practice in August 2019.

 

Cash used in financing activities

 

Financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 provided cash of $3,261,181 as compared to using cash in the amount of $2,408,541 for the same period in 2020. The increase in cash is attributed to the received net proceeds of $3,382,352 from the sale of 393,300 of common stock under its Registration Statement on Form S-3 and the previously disclosed At Market Issuance Sales Agreement with a sales agent in February 2021. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company paid a dividend to its shareholders which did not occur during the current year.

 

The Company believes that as a result of the growth in business, and the funds available from the proceeds from the sale of common stock, it has adequate liquidity to fund its operating plans for at least the next twelve months, provided, however, that the Company cannot currently quantify the uncertainty related to the recent pandemic and its effects on the business in the coming quarters. The belief that the Company has sufficient liquidity may be incorrect as the impact of Covid-19 becomes clearer over the coming months and quarters.

 

There was no significant impact on the Company’s operations as a result of inflation for the three months ended March 31, 2021.  

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021 or for fiscal 2020, we did not engage in any material off-balance sheet activities or have any relationships or arrangements with unconsolidated entities established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. Further, we have not guaranteed any obligations of unconsolidated entities nor do we have any commitment or intent to provide additional funding to any such entities.

 

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

We do not hold any derivative instruments and do not engage in any hedging activities.

 

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure and Control Procedures

 

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

 

As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act.  Based on the controls evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that as of the date of their evaluation, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that (a) the information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (b) such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and President and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and Rule 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during our most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
