Jack Abuhoff, CEO, said, "Despite the unprecedented disruptions in 2020, we were still able to grow our revenues and earnings, but more importantly, we are much better positioned entering this new year to show accelerating growth moving forward. Our confidence is underpinned by the fact that we are seeing a blue-sky growth trajectory in the industry segments we serve, and our offerings are seeing strong customer adoption. To take advantage of this opportunity we plan to significantly increase our sales and marketing team. Through most of 2020, we had 15 people in sales. Our 2021 budget, by contrast, calls for ending 2021 with a sales team of 98 in total. We are also investing in our proprietary technology solutions to maintain and enhance our product excellence and leadership as well as enable us to scale our business for growth.

I look forward to presenting additional context on our analyst call today."
