Support.com Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Sunnyvale, CA – November 5, 2020 – Support.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPRT), a leader in customer and technical support solutions delivered by home-based employees, today reported unaudited financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2020.
Q3 2020 Financial Summary
For the third quarter of 2020, total revenue was $10.3 million, a decrease of $4.9 million or 32 percent compared to revenues of $15.2 million in the third quarter of 2019 and down $0.7 million or 6 percent compared to revenues of $11.0 million in the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in revenues from the prior quarter was primarily due to the migration of services in one line of business from one of our major customers to a country where Support.com did not offer services. This migration was complete in the quarter ending June 30, 2020.
We recorded net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $1.6 million, or $0.08 per share, in the third quarter of 2019 and net income of $0.6 million, or $0.03 per share, in the second quarter of 2020.
Key changes in our net income (loss) included the following:
Gross profit was $3.1 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $4.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2020.
Gross profit margin of 30% remained relatively flat compared with the same quarter of 2019 and declined by 5 percentage points when compared to the second quarter of 2020.
Operating expenses were $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2019 and $3.4 million in the second quarter of 2020.
In the third quarter of 2020, the company incurred $0.7 million in one-time transition-related costs as we re-focus on building an enterprise-ready leader in homesourcingTM.
Balance Sheet Information
At September 30, 2020, cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $29.7 million, compared with $44.8 million at September 30, 2019, $26.4 million at December 31, 2019 and relatively flat compared to the prior quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily attributable to the previously discussed $10.0 million legal-settlement payment in the second quarter of 2019 and the $19.1 million special distribution to shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Total assets as of September 30, 2020 were $39.1 million and total stockholders’ equity was $34.0 million.
Management Commentary
“Q3, 2020 was a quarter of accomplishments for us as Support.com embarked on our transition from a consumer-focused to an enterprise-focused company, with global delivery capabilities on our homesourcing platform,” said Lance Rosenzweig, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are assembling a world-class team that will help the company execute on the substantial opportunity in front of us in the large and growing outsourced CRM industry, through on-demand, globally scalable home-based experts located anywhere.”
