GlobalSCAPE Inc. Restates 2005 Financial Statements
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (OTCBB:GSCP) announced today that it has restated its 2005 financial statements as a result of an error in calculation of revenue from maintenance and support (net of deferred revenues) for the year ended December 31, 2005. The error was a result of the failure to properly code deferred revenue percentages on new product introductions that went directly to our sales and order entry database. The error has been corrected. GlobalSCAPE had previously recorded $154,433 as current revenue which should have been recorded as deferred revenue. The correction of the error resulted in a decrease of $154,433 in the Company’s revenue as reported on the Company’s income statement and an increase of $154,433 to the previously stated deferred revenue on the Company’s balance sheet at December 31, 2005. Restated net income is $1,446,704, a reduction of $94,478.
Charles R. Poole, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We will be filing the 10-K/A shortly. Even after the restatement, fiscal year 2005 remains an incredible year for us.”
The Company also announced it was adjusting its first quarter 2006 revenue forecast slightly to just over $2.4m as a result of finding the error, related to revenue recognition subsequent to quarter end, but prior to filing of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. The Company expects that the 10-Q will be filed on or before May 15, 2006.
