"We are grateful that the Covid pandemic did not negatively impact our performance in 2020," said Mark Meller, Chief Executive Officer of SilverSun. "In fact, the investments the Company made in the past few years in our IT managed services division, which provides managed services, cybersecurity, application hosting and Infrastructure-as-a-Service, enabled us to successfully achieve this past year. Customers in 2020 were required to adapt to the new work-from-home paradigm, and we were able to provide them with the technology and expertise required for them to operate their businesses remotely and securely."
"Similarly, our ERP software and consulting division was also very busy. While we had customers negatively impacted by Covid, many of our customers took the long view that their businesses were going to continue to flourish after the pandemic. As a result, they took the opportunity in 2020 to accelerate their anticipated technology projects, which resulted in greater software sales and higher consultant utilization. Of even greater import, we had a very successful year selling ERP systems to net new customers. In fact, we were so successful that we were named by Sage Software as the Partner of the Year for 2020 for New Acquisitions."
"Our operating results for 2020 show the impact of our organizational focus on margin improvement and cost reduction. Gross margin as a percentage of revenues increased to 40.2% in 2020, compared to 38.1% in 2019. Similarly, our selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A), excluding depreciation and amortization, decreased to 37.9% of revenue in 2020, compared to 40.5% in 2019. We continue to review and implement cost-saving measures to reduce our operating expenses in order that we can improve our operating margins in the upcoming quarters."
"Acquisitions have always been an important part of our growth strategy. We successfully completed 3 acquisitions in 2020, and have already successfully integrated them into our operations. We will continue to aggressively seek additional acquisition opportunities, and I am optimistic that we will be able to successfully acquire a similar or greater number of strategic companies in 2021."
Meller concluded, "We are confident we can continue our upward trend in both revenue and profitability. The Company is well positioned for success, and we look forward to continuing to deliver positive news and results in the coming months."
