Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “We remain on pace to deliver the best year in the history of the Company, despite the fact that this was a mediocre quarter for us. We regard it as a one-time event, as we continue to navigate the various market dynamics taking hold in the economy today. As the Covid pandemic continues to cause disruptions within supply chains, we saw more customers this quarter taking a wait-and-see approach to their technology investments than they had previously. While projects are not being cancelled per se, we are seeing more delays as our customers look to conserve cashflow until such time as they feel more confident about their short-term prospects. Similarly, we have seen a greater number of delays than usual as our customers confront more labor shortages in this challenging labor environment. We believe these dynamics are short-term, and will ease in the coming months.”
“Despite these short term challenges, our focus on the digital transformation of our customers continues to bear fruit. We have been focusing on increasing our monthly recurring revenue (“MRR”), and on increasing recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue. The products and services that we provide that generate MRR include our Software as a Service (SaaS) product offerings, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), cloud hosting for business applications, cybersecurity, business continuity and disaster recovery solutions. As a result, MRR is now approaching 50% of total revenue.”
“In order to more tightly align our product offerings with our strategic vision of providing cloud-based solutions and technologies, we are making some changes in our ERP product offerings. We are in the process of off-boarding some legacy on-premise solutions, and have recently signed agreements to become a reseller of Sage Intacct. Sage Intacct publishes cloud-based financial management and accounting applications for businesses and CPA firms, and will provide a nice complement to our large and growing Acumatica practice. We are confident that this realignment will both accelerate our growth, increase our MRR, and enhance our profitability.”
“As we scale our business, we continue to remain focused on improving our operating efficiency and reducing expenses. As a result of increased utilization and the sales of higher margin solutions, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation (EBITDA) was $1,140,953 for the first 9 months of the year, , increasing $859,129 from $281,824for the first nine months of 2020. I expect we will see continued improvement in our operating margins in the coming quarters.”
In conclusion, Meller stated, “The Company continues to execute on its business plan. Our sales pipeline for the balance of the year is strong, our managed service provider (MSP) continues to aggressively on-board new customers for our Infrastructure-as-a-Service, application hosting, and cybersecurity offerings, and our pipeline for consulting project hours remains robust. As a result, we are confident about our prospects for the balance of the year, and for 2022 and beyond. ”
