Skkynet Announces Q1 2021 Financial Results and Reiterates Positive Outlook
Mississauga, Ontario, March 9, 2021 – Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: SKKY) is pleased to announce its quarter-end operating and financial results for the period ended January 31, 2021. The Company reported a record first quarter revenue of US$438,066 compared to $419,482 for the same period in 2020, which marks a 4.4% growth in sales, all during industry-wide slow-downs due to COVID-19 disruptions. Loss from operations for the 3-month period was $10,581 compared to a loss of $12,271 for the same period in 2020.
“Skkynet’s Q1 2021 results maintain our positive revenue growth, notable considering the same quarter in 2020 represented 60% growth over the same period in 2019. We continue to maintain a robust cash position for further growth in 2021,” stated Andrew Thomas, CEO. “The outlook for 2021 is excellent; we remain positive and expect to accelerate our growth through the remainder of the year due to regulatory and corporate mandates for secure access to industrial data in response to the world-wide pandemic.”
“We have continued to focus on building new partnerships in industry, especially in the Asia region, which has not seen the same slowdown as North America and Europe,” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “With our new channel partner in China, Beijing Hongxin Zhaoyang Technology Co., Ltd., we now have sales and support coverage in the largest Asian market, in addition to Servo Dynamics with coverage in Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, and Cambodia. We are seeing very strong interest from within the APAC region.”
