Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “This was a solid quarter for the Company, as we begin to see the impact of investments made in people and systems in earlier periods. Sales for the quarter were up 7.7%, yet EBITDA (plus share based compensation) was up 16.2% from the year earlier period. Similarly, sales for the first six months of 2019 were up 10.1%, yet EBITDA (plus share based compensation) was up 21.2% from the year earlier period. I expect our margins to continue to improve as the business continues to scale in the coming months and years.
“We are focused on increasing our monthly recurring revenue (“MRR”), and on increasing recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue. Total recurring revenue now represents 44.4% of total revenue. Secure Cloud Services, our wholly-owned subsidiary which provides cloud hosting for business applications, has tripled the number of users on the platform in the past twelve months alone, and has a very strong pipeline. Our managed service provider, which provides remote monitoring, cybersecurity, business continuity and disaster recovery services, now has MRR in excess of $400,000, and continues to grow. Our enterprise cybersecurity initiative, which is being offered in partnership with CyberHat, an Israeli-based Security Operations Center (SOC), has closed several transactions, with several large transactions expecting to close in the next few months. Each of these business lines is built on a recurring revenue model.
“A key growth initiative for the Company is its Partner Success Program (PSP). Under the program, smaller business partners in the Sage Software channel are provided access to the Company’s sales and marketing engine, and are provided the opportunity to share in revenue generated. Since the program’s launch, the Company has doubled the number of customers operating under its umbrella. The ability of our sales organization to upsell and cross-sell into this customer base represents a significant growth opportunity for the Company.”
Meller concluded, “All in all, we are extremely optimistic about our prospects for the balance of 2019, and look forward to continuing to deliver positive results for the benefit of all our stakeholders in the coming months and years ahead.”
