Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “This was an excellent quarter for SilverSun. Our various growth initiatives continue to gain traction, and as a result, we reported the highest revenue we’ve ever generated in a single quarter. In addition, our EBITDA margin (including share based compensation) rose to 4.6%, up from 2.2% in Q2 2018. We continue to focus on improving our operating margins, and expect continued improvement in the coming quarters.

“The launch of our new Cybersecurity-as-a Service offering is going extremely well. We currently have proposals outstanding to several enterprise customers which, if consummated, could result in recurring revenue to the Company of over $50,000 per month. Given that this pipeline has been created only since July 1st of this year from a standing start, we are very excited about the opportunity that cybersecurity presents for us. Our EDI application, MAPADOC, is now on the Sage Software pricelist, providing a new avenue of growth for the solution. And our sales organization is delivering a record year in terms of sales to our ever increasing installed base of customers.”

Meller concluded, “All in all, we are extremely optimistic about our prospects for the balance of 2018, and look forward to continuing to deliver positive results for the benefit of all our stakeholders in the coming months and years ahead.”
