Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, "We had an excellent quarter, with positive results being delivered across our entire platform. Software sales continue to be strong, and the sales pipeline is deep for the balance of 2021. Our customers and prospects seem to feel confident about their economic outlook both in the short and long term, and are aggressively investing in their systems and infrastructure for the future."
"Our consultants are busy, with most teams operating at high utilization rates. Recurring revenue continues to climb, and is now approaching 45% of total revenue. Our MSP (managed service provider) has expanded its geographic reach, and is now providing cloud migrations on a nationwide basis to our SMB (small and medium-sized business) customers. We expect to see rapid growth in that division over the next several years."
Meller continued, "Most importantly, investments we've made in people, processes and infrastructure over the past several years are taking hold and generating results. The first quarter continued the upward trend in both growth and profitability we delivered in the second half of 2020."
"While sales grew at the rate of 7.9% year over year, gross profit grew at an even more rapid rate of 23.2%. Our gross profit increased to 43.6% of revenues in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 38.2% in 2020. Similarly, selling, general and administrative expenses (exclusive of depreciation and amortization expenses) declined to 37.3 % of revenue, compared to 40.4% in 2020. As a result, our operating margin for the first quarter (exclusive of depreciation and amortization expenses) was 6.4%, a substantial change from our operating loss in the first quarter of 2020. "
"Our operating results show the impact of our sales strategy, our market-driven portfolio of products and services, and our laser focus on margin improvement and cost reduction. We continue to review and implement cost-saving measures to reduce our operating expenses so that we can continue to improve our operating margins in the upcoming quarters as we aggressively scale our business. The Company is well positioned for success, and we look forward to continuing to deliver positive news and results in the coming weeks and months."
