Revenue of $810,000 in 2021 Down 51.7% Versus $1.7 Million in 2020
Net Loss of $266,000 in 2021 Versus Net Loss of $96,000 in 2020
NEW YORK, May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saker Aviation Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SKAS), an aviation services company specializing in ground-based services to the general aviation marketplace, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $809,096, was down 51.7 percent from $1,673,755 in the three months ended March 31, 2020. Net loss in the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $265,666, was down $169,526 as compared to net loss of $96,140 in the same period in 2020.
“As anticipated, the COVID-19 pandemic drove a negative comparison in Q1 2021 as compared to 2020, though we are pleased that the loss narrowed in comparison to prior quarters.” stated Mark Raab, the Company’s Corporate Controller. “Multiple CARES Act provisions will strengthen our balance sheet in upcoming quarters, as previously noted. Indications remain that tourist activity may increase in New York City. And discussions with the City on ways to address operating losses continue to progress. The totality of the pandemic will negatively impact financial results in 2021. But as we begin to lap COVID-impacted quarters in 2020, comparisons should improve,” concluded Mr. Raab.
