Key Factors

Synchronoss’ second-quarter performance is expected to have been hurt by business disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Retail store operators make up for significant contribution to the company’s revenues. However, as retail stores across the world remained closed during most of the March-June period, the company’s top line might have been adversely impacted during the second quarter.

However, the firm’s large deals with the likes of Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, British Telecom, Vodafone, Comcast, the three Japanese carriers, and others are likely to have helped weather the pandemic-induced economic downturn. The company generates about 70% of its recurring revenues from the aforementioned relationships, which provides it a solid base of revenues even during uncertain times.

Additionally, its cost-saving initiatives are likely to have boosted Synchronoss’ profitability during the quarter under review. The company’s cost-cutting measures include executives’ pay cut, reduction in workforce and contractors, facilities rationalizations, renegotiation of contracts with vendors and suppliers, and merit increase and bonus deferrals.

The company expects these measures to deliver approximately $55 million in annualized operating expenses reductions. Of the total, Synchronoss projects $45 million to be realized during the current year.
