Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, "This was another good quarter for the Company. As the Covid pandemic continues to cause disruptions within supply chains and the new work-from-home paradigm mandates that companies be able to access their data and business applications safely and securely from remote locations, our focus on the digital transformation of our customers continues to bear fruit. We have been focusing on increasing our monthly recurring revenue ("MRR"), and on increasing recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue. The products and services that we provide that generate MRR include our Software as a Service (SaaS) product offerings, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), cloud hosting for business applications, cybersecurity, business continuity and disaster recovery solutions. As a result, MRR is now approaching 46% of total revenue."
"As we scale our business, we continue to remain focused on improving our operating efficiency and reducing expenses. As a result of increased utilization and the sales of higher margin solutions, the Company's gross margin was 41.7% for the second quarter versus 40.7% last year, and 42.7% for the first half of 2021 versus 39.4% last year. Similarly, the Company's selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were 37.2% of revenue this quarter, versus 38.4% last year. For the first half of 2021, SG&A expense was 37.2% of revenue, versus 39.4% for the same period last year."
"With margins up and expenses down, the trend is in the right direction. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation (EBITDA) has increased $239,412 in the second quarter versus the same period last year, and has increased by $1,158,608 for the first 6 months of the year versus the first six months of 2020. I expect we will see continued improvement in our operating margins in the coming quarters."
In conclusion, Meller stated, "The Company continues to execute on its business plan. Revenue and gross profit are up, gross margins are up, and operating expenses are down. Our sales pipeline for the balance of the year is strong, and our marketing team continues to generate leads at a record pace. We completed the acquisitions of CT Solutions and the Human Capital Management division of PeopleSense in the second quarter, and we will continue to pursue further acquisitions in the coming months. As a result, we are excited and confident about continuing to deliver positive financial results, and are well positioned for continued and accelerated growth. I am grateful to our team for their tremendous efforts in accomplishing this feat in the current environment."
