Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, "For the past four years we have been methodically executing a business plan designed to optimize our strengths and enable our Company to become the profitable and rapidly-growing business it is today. "
"We are very proud of the competitive success our Company continues to enjoy, which is a direct result of our team's hard work, dedication and unwavering focus on excellence and superior customer service. Sales have grown at a compound annual growth rate of 32% per annum these past three years, a rate we expect to meet and exceed in the coming years. Our recurring revenue exceeds $6.5 million, or 37% of our total revenue. We expect recurring revenue to continue to represent an ever higher percentage of total revenue in the coming years as we continue to offer more advanced cloud services and software-as-a-service solutions to our small and medium-sized business clients. Most importantly, net income was $322,548 in 2013, versus a loss of $1,235,170 in 2012, an improvement of $1,557,718."
Continuing, Meller said, "Investing in the acquisition of other companies and proprietary business management solutions has also been an important growth strategy for SilverSun, allowing us to rapidly offer new products and services, expand into new geographic markets and create new and exciting profit centers. We have previously completed a series of strategic acquisitions that have expanded our footprint to nearly every U.S. state, and we are currently pursuing several cloud service providers for acquisition, as well as other managed service providers and software publishers. In addition, we continue to remain opportunistic in acquiring smaller business consulting firms, acquiring those firms that provide resources, expertise or geography to our professional services group. We are confident that we will be able to close several of these transactions in 2014."
In conclusion, Meller added, "We have had a successful year, which we regard as an inflection point for the future. Having combined growth and profitability in 2013, we see the Company continuing to deliver similar results in 2014 and beyond. By remaining steadfast in executing our business plan and embracing technological change, we fully expect that our continued efforts will help to perpetuate -- and even accelerate -- this impressive growth trend well into the foreseeable future."
