Sajan CEO, Shannon Zimmerman Comments


Shannon Zimmerman, CEO of Sajan, commented on the Company’s fourth quarter financial results. “We were able to deliver our best revenue and profit quarter of 2015 despite experiencing spending delays with many of our larger customers similar to those that impacted our third quarter results. Although customer project delays are disappointing and frustrating, we believe it is more likely now a product of some larger macroecenomic caution, as I want to emphasize that our relationships with our customers are strong. We were able to offset revenue declines from some of our top customers with increased revenue from new clients in 2015 and from the growth in our Life Sciences clients. We also saw our revenue from IBM, our largest client, reach its highest level since the second quarter of 2014.”


Mr. Zimmerman continued, “Our full year 2015 revenue reflects aggregate growth of 68 percent in four of our prior year top ten clients which was offset by an aggregate decline of 22 percent in the remaining six of our prior year top ten clients, and includes revenue from new customers of almost $2,000,000. We are gaining traction with SiteSync, our web translation solution, and we have made investments in our operational staff, which has positioned us for future growth. Further, our balance sheet is in the strongest position in Company history. I am extremely excited about the Company’s position as we enter 2016.”
