Mark Meller, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SilverSun, stated, "We are pleased to present these outstanding financial results for 2014. We have continued to execute on our business plan which is designed to optimize our strengths, and this has enabled our Company to become the profitable and rapidly-growing business it is today."
"We are very proud of the competitive success our Company continues to enjoy, which is a direct result of our team's hard work, dedication and unwavering focus on excellence and superior customer service. Sales have grown at a compound annual growth rate of roughly 30% per annum these past four years, a rate we expect to meet and exceed in the coming years. Our recurring revenue exceeds $7.26 million, or 34% of our total revenue. We expect recurring revenue to continue to represent an ever higher percentage of total revenue in the coming years as we continue to offer more advanced managed services and software-as-a-service solutions to our small and medium-sized business clients. Most importantly, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") were $835,224 in 2014, versus $560,566 in 2013, an increase of 49%."
Continuing, Meller said, "Investing in the acquisition of other companies and proprietary business management solutions has also been an important growth strategy for SilverSun, allowing us to rapidly offer new products and services, expand into new geographic markets and create new and exciting profit centers. We have previously completed a series of strategic acquisitions that have expanded our footprint to nearly every U.S. state, and we are currently pursuing several managed service providers, as well as other software publishers, for acquisition. In addition, we continue to remain opportunistic in acquiring smaller business consulting firms, acquiring those firms that provide resources, expertise or geography to our professional services group. We are confident that we will be able to close several of these transactions in 2015."
In conclusion, Meller added, "We have had a successful year. Having combined growth and profitability in 2014, we believe the Company will continue to thrive in 2015 and beyond. By remaining steadfast in executing our business plan and embracing technological change, we fully expect that our continued efforts will help to perpetuate -- and even accelerate -- this impressive growth trend well into the foreseeable future."
