“We are comfortable with our results for this quarter”, said Robert J. Thompson, Chairman of the Board of QuoteMedia, Inc. “As we mentioned when releasing our results for the previous quarter, while we only experienced modest revenue growth, it occurs in the context of the severe economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our operations continue to be affected by a range of factors related to the global pandemic that are outside of our control. Prime among them is that the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a slow-down in clients’ or prospects’ purchasing decisions, or product and service implementations. In other cases, clients have suspended operations, due to the financial strain resulting from current economic conditions. Although this has tempered our revenue growth, we are pleased to still be experiencing modest gains despite the current climate.
“In part, our continued growth, although constrained, is due to the fact that the current economic downturn has also been a source of some opportunities, as the added pressure on financial sector firms to find more efficient and cost effective solutions to their data and technology needs is leading to a continuing demand for QuoteMedia’s offerings. The situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic remains fluid, and we are continuing to actively manage our response and assess potential impacts to our financial position and operating results, even as we look forward to the eventual economic recovery.
