salaries with an addition of two full-time employees. The company also awarded a
stock based compensation of options valued at $33,050 to a current employee

Software as a Service Expense (SaaS) increased by $32,773. This is attributed to the expanding data gathering so management can make more informed decisions.

Advertising Expensesincreased primarily due to additional marketing campaigns for both Data Storage Corporation and their subsidiary Nexxis.

Professional feesdecreased primarily due to the company hiring a consultant as an employee and relying less on consultants for accounting services.

All Other Expenses decreased primarily due to the reduction of training expenses
in the amount of approximately $12,700, rent expense in the amount of
approximately $7,400 due to the company downsizing in office space, bad debt
recovery of about approximately $10,000 and office supplies in the amount of
approximately $4,700.

Other Income (Expense). Interest income (expense) for the three months ended
March 31, 2020 increased $2,892 to $46,440 from $49,332 for the three months
ended March 31, 2019.

Net Income (Loss). Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $40,473, as compared to a net income of $52,538 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.



The consolidated financial statements have been prepared using generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP")
applicable for a going concern, which assumes that DSC will realize its assets
and discharge its liabilities in the ordinary course of business. In 2020, we
intend to continue to work to increase our presence in the cloud and business
continuity marketplace specializing in IBM Power i and disaster recovery /
business continuity marketplace utilizing our technical expertise, software and
our capacity in our data centers.

To the extent we are successful in growing our business, identifying potential
acquisition targets and negotiating the terms of such acquisition, and the
purchase price includes a cash component, we plan to use our working capital and
the proceeds of any financing to finance such acquisition costs. Our opinion
concerning our liquidity is based on current information. If this information
proves to be inaccurate, or if circumstances change, we may not be able to meet
our liquidity needs, which will require a renegotiation of related party capital
equipment leases and / or major shareholders, such as senior management,
entering into financing or stock purchase arrangements.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, DSC's cash increased $1,621 to
$328,182 from $326,561 March 31, 2019. Net cash of $ 297,720 was provided by
DSC's operating activities resulting primarily from the changes in assets and
liabilities. Net cash of $56,812 was used in investing activities resulting from
payments on capital expenditures. Net cash of $239,287 was used in financing
activities resulting primarily from payments on capital lease obligations.

DSC's working capital deficit was $2,763,533 at March 31, 2020, increasing by
$191,950 from $2,571,583 at December 31, 2019. The increase is primarily
attributable to an increase of accounts payable, dividend payable and, related
party financing notes in the amount of $329,078. The increase in short term
liabilities was offset by an increase in accounts receivable and prepaid
expenses of $175,178.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

DSC does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, financings, or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or other persons, also known as "special purpose entities".
