SurgePay Inc. (OTCMKTS:SURG) Filed its 10k Friday April 2, while markets were closed in observance of Good Friday. How will investors react Monday when the market opens?
While nothing in the market is certain there did appear to be some good news within the 52-page document that investors just may get excited about.
Revenue increased 111% from $25,742,941in 2019 to $54,406,788 in 2020.
The filing explains: Revenue increased $28,663,847 (111%) primarily as a result of the increase of the ECS revenues of $24,094,753 and an increase of $9,195,691 in revenues from Surge Logics offset by decreases of $3,044,411 in True Wireless, Inc. and $3,697,947 in Surge Blockchain LLC.
Gross profit decreased from $3,119,420 in 2019 to $2,468,677 in 2020. The filing says “gross profit decreased by $650,743 (21%) primarily as a result of a decreases in gross profit of $201,847 in True Wireless, Inc. and $765,572 of Surge Blockchain LLC that offset the gross profit gains from the increased revenues of the other subsidiaries.”
While gross profits were down there does appear to be some light at the end of the tunnel.
On page 15 it says: “We believe we will continue to incur net losses and do not expect positive cash flows from operations until the 4th quarter of 2021. At that time, we believe the impact of COVID-19 will have rescinded enough to allow us to fully implement our sales strategy, resulting in increased revenue in all segments of our business.”
So we will see what investors think about this but it appears SurgePay Inc. (OTCMKTS:SURG) may be heading in the right direction.
