Mr. Roy Hess, Chief Executive Officer of MTS, said, «We are excited to achieve this major milestone by signing the definitive merger agreement with SharpLink, a promising leading online technology company that works with sports leagues, fantasy sports sites and media companies. We are also excited about our future growth strategy as well as the current industry’s rapid expansion both in the U.S. and globally. Our results in 2020 reflect the substantial reduction of our ongoing operations which were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. During 2020, the Company continued implementing its efficiency plan and reduced its operational expenses which contributed to improved operating margins. Excluding the impact of one-time non-cash impairment charges, our net loss for the second half of 2020 was $(224,000) on a non-GAAP basis. In June 2019, we introduced Omnis – Contact Center Software with «Out-Of-The-Box» capabilities and open channel architecture. During the end of 2019, we started to see initial revenues from this new product, which we consider to be our main growth engine in the coming years. While our marketing of this new product was delayed by the onset of the pandemic we intend to accelerate its introduction in 2021.» Mr. Hess concluded, «we are looking forward to completing the SharpLink transaction in the near future and beginning a new chapter in the life of our company.»
