Full Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Summary and Highlights
- Revenues of $9.35 million, up 2.0% compared to the year ended December 31, 2019, due to increasing work-from-home usage trends and strong organic growth in its Hosted Services business.
- Gross profit increased by 23.2% compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 reflecting a continued focus on Hosted Services, which grew over 84% compared to the year ended December 31, 2019.
- Net Income of $238,618 or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $(1,584,904), or $(0.04) per share in the year ended December 31, 2019.

"We are pleased to report our first full year of positive net income as a public company as we exhibited strong year over year growth in revenues, gross profit, and operating income," stated KonaTel Chairman and CEO Sean McEwen. "As we indicated last quarter, we are extremely focused on high margin, sustainable business that can drive scale and cash flow. To that end, we enjoyed strong growth in our CPaaS hosted services business, and emphasized its performance over retaining legacy mobile services revenues that contribute little to our bottom line. Going forward we will continue to grow our Hosted Services business through a combination of strong organic sales and potential commercial partnerships."
The Company ended the year with $715,195 in cash, compared to $191,474 in cash on December 31, 2019. Long term debt was $165,399 versus $63,545 on December 31, 2019.
Update on Listing
The Company successfully completed its uplisting to OTC Markets Group Inc.'s OTCQB® Venture Market ("OTCQB") in December of 2020. "Our recent OTCQB uplisting was an important milestone in our efforts to increase investor awareness, visibility, and trading liquidity around our public shares," stated Sean McEwen. "Our ultimate goal is a further uplisting to a major exchange such as NASDAQ or NYSE which we will continue to pursue."
