Management Commentary:

Jason Remillard, CEO of Data443, commented, “Today’s announcement consists of two important milestones for our business. Since acquiring ARALOC, we have built upon the unbeatable customer base by strengthening existing product functionality and offerings, with to the ARALOC product set contributing regularly to our growing and stable regular and deferred revenue base. We understood the great potential for ARALOC when we acquired it in 2018 as immediately accretive for Data443, which has proven to be the case.”

“Our team worked very hard with our financing partners to come to terms with holders of certain of our convertible notes which enables our business to continue to pay down both our financing and acquisitions costs when and how appropriate – in response to market and cost of capital conditions. We continue to work on myriad financing options that make sense for the Company and our shareholders.”

“What continues to have our whole team optimistic is that we continue to build and grow our business. We continue to perform for our clients, just not growing their capabilities but helping them through their challenging needs and enabling them to deliver their critical functions.  From school divisions, major banks, pharmaceuticals, first responders and numerous associations – our client base all have specific and important requirements. We take these to heart every time we login, boot up, or check our alerts. Just last week, we fully re-opened our headquarters in the Research Triangle Park to our tireless staff. We truly have an exciting business emerging at Data443. I look forward to providing further significant updates to our loyal shareholders, including a report on our second quarter earnings, which I expect to be completed by the first week in August,” concluded Mr. Remillard.
