Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “Our first quarter provided a mixed bag of results. Despite an increase in software and consulting revenue, we saw a decrease in gross margins from 40.4% in the first quarter of 2019 to 38.2% in 2020. We attribute this to a higher sales volume of add-on modules from third party solution providers, which typically have lower margins than new ERP sales. Operating expenses also increased, with much of the expense associated with increased sales and marketing activities and attendance at various software publisher tradeshows and user conferences. As a result, our operating loss increased to $292,115 for the quarter.”
Meller further commented, “The negative impact of COVID-19 on the economy creates tremendous uncertainty for the Company. Recent government reports indicate that there are currently over 35 million people unemployed in the U.S., many of whom work at our customer’s businesses or businesses similar to our customers. As a result, it is likely that we will suffer negative consequences as many of these companies go out of business or decrease their technology spending, although the magnitude of these consequences is impossible to determine at this point. Management will continue to monitor developments and explore various cost-cutting measures in order to weather this economic challenge.”
