Jack Abuhoff, CEO, said, "We're exceeding our operational KPIs and hiring and cost management goals. Just four months into the year, we already have enough new business secured and projects in our late-stage pipeline to meet or exceed growth targets this year. We're focused on getting these late-stage projects over the finish line and pushed into revenue. Our plan to accelerate growth is a function of ramp-up in newly secured business; late-stage pipeline conversions; expansions in business from new and recently-won customers; and pipeline growth as our expanding salesforce becomes fully productive.

From Q4 2019 to now, we have reduced structural costs by approximately $6 million (on an annual basis) allowing us to aggressively deploy internally generated cash flow in sales and marketing and product enhancement initiatives that we believe will lead to growth and provide short-term payback. In Q1, we incurred costs of approximately $1.9 million toward accelerated growth. We believe our company is well-positioned to take advantage of strong tailwinds in each segment of our business. We continue to have a strong balance sheet, with over $17 million in cash and no significant debt."
