The managed service and 24x7 support allow customers to focus on their core business without having to worry about hardware, operating systems, network connectivity or uptime.

Shared web hosting is a great option for startup or smaller businesses as the website sits on the same server with other websites and shares resources such as memory and Central Processing Unit (CPU). Basic website applications such as email and file sharing are ideal for shared server offerings.

Virtual private servers

Virtual private servers (VPS) is a step up from a shared hosting solution in that specific server resources are allocated directly for a customer's use, assuring performance levels. This is a more secure and reliable option that separates a customer's site from others and is ideal for storage or database applications for businesses, developers, and fast-growing sites.

Dedicated servers

Dedicated servers provide yet another level of security and performance for those who need more processing power or storage. Servers are built to customer specifications and tuned for performance, reliability and efficiency to meet the demand of more robust applications. Through Pair QuickServe (QS), a powerful hosting solution with tremendous capacity and speed, servers are ready for a customer's use quickly and fully managed to keep them up to date.

Pair hosting also offers self-managed service through server collocation, which delivers the advantages of the powerful infrastructure that was built behind the fully managed offerings. For those customers who want to purchase their own hardware, collocation service in Pair's data center allows for unmanaged service with the security and reliability of the diverse network, physically secure facilities, backup power and redundant climate control.

Results of Operations

Three months Ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recorded revenues of $6,252,751, a 0.5% decrease from revenues of $6,282,979 for the same period in 2019. The decrease for 2020 reflects a decrease due to Pair's hosting and domain offerings and a slight decrease to LibsynPro revenue, offset by an increase in Libsyn4 hosting revenue. Libsyn contributed $3,779,264 and $3,334,635 of revenue during the first three months of 2020 and 2019, respectively. Pair contributed $ 2,473,487 and $2,948,344 of revenue during the first three months of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Libsyn4 hosting revenue increased $450,552, or 17% during the first three months ended March 31, 2020 when compared to the same period in 2019 due to the growth in the number of podcasts on the network. LibsynPro revenue decreased slightly by 4% as a result of relatively flat revenue from producers using the LibsynPro networks and using our platform. Advertising revenue decreased $48,891 during the first three months of 2020 versus the same period of 2018. The decrease resulted from decrease in the dollars being spent on ad campaigns during the first three months of 2020 with existing advertisers. Premium subscription revenue increased $66,228.

The Company recorded total costs and operating expenses of $4,834,330 during the first three months of 2020, a 2% increase as compared to total costs and operating expenses of $4,719,576 during the same period of 2019. Libsyn contributed $2,165,048 to total costs and operating expenses during the first three months of 2020, and $2,066,782 during the same period in 2019. Pair contributed $2,669,282 to total costs and operating expenses during the first three months of 2019 and $2,652,794 during the same period in 2018.

During the first three months of 2020, cost of revenue totaled $807,236, a 3.9% increase as compared to $839,640 for the same period in 2019. Libsyn contributed $503,482 while Pair contributed $303,754 to the cost of revenue during the first three months of 2020. Libsyn recorded a decrease in bandwidth costs and ad sharing paid to producers offset by an increase in credit card processing fees, and colocation fees during the first three months of 2020 versus 2019. Pair recorded a decrease in domain name fees and internet fees. Cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue for Libsyn decreased to 13% during the first three months of 2020 from 21% during the same period in 2019. This is a reflection of the reduction in the bandwidth rate to deliver the podcasts, off-set by an increase in bandwidth usage during the first three months of 2020 due to the growth in the number of podcasts and increased podcast consumption on the Libsyn Platform. Cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue for Pair increased to 12% during the first three months of 2020 from 9% during the same period in 2019. This is due primarily to the increase in domain name purchase fees and internet connectivity fees.



                                       20


General and administrative expenses totaled $1,950,041 during the first three months of 2020 versus $1,828,539 during the same period in 2019, an increase of 7%. The increase was driven primarily due to an increase in legal and advisory fees, wage expense, and insurance costs, offset by a decrease in professional fees as well as a reduction of non-cash expense for Libsyn. General and administrative expense for Pair during the first three months of 2020 was $842,422 and $686,643 for the same period in 2019. General and administrative for Libsyn for the same periods was $1,141,896 and $781,888, respectively.

Technology expenses represented $581,070 during the first three months of 2020 versus $454,638 in 2019, driven by an increase in wage expense during the first three months of 2020. Selling expenses during the first three months of 2020 were $230,812 versus $194,794 during the same period in 2019 driven by an increase in advertising expense. Customer support expenses in the first three months of 2020 were $751,167 versus $659,868 during the same period in 2019 driven by the increase in support staff costs.

Depreciation and amortization expenses consist of charges relating to the depreciation of the property and equipment used in our operations and the amortization of intangible assets. Depreciation and amortization expense for the first three months of 2020 was $514,004 and $742,097 during the same period in 2019. During the first three months of 2020, Libsyn contributed $20,040 and Pair contributed $492,964 to depreciation and amortization expense.

Interest expense for the first three months of 2020 was $62,342 compared to $86,842 in the three months of 2019, which represents interest on the loan facility obtained in connection with the acquisition of Pair. Interest expense for the three months of 2020 was offset with interest income of $58,434, resulting in net cash expenditure of $3,908.

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $304,536, which represents a change in the deferred tax assets and the expected federal balance due for the three month period ended March 31, 2020. Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $327,010.

The Company's net income was $1,120,111 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This represents a $80,512 decrease from $1,200,623 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
