GlobalSCAPE grows 3rd quarter revenue 50%
Company grows YTD revenue by 71% and Net Income 207%
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - GlobalSCAPE (AMEX:GSB), a leading provider of products that allow companies to move, store and share files securely over the Internet, announced its third quarter results today.
Revenue for the quarter ending September 30, 2007, grew to $3,900,300, or 50% over the $2,603,236 generated in the third quarter of 2006. Net Income increased by 31% to $702,875 or $.04 per share on a fully diluted basis for the quarter. For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, per share earnings were $.19 and $.18 for basic and fully diluted shares outstanding, respectively, on earnings of $3,290,967, or 24% of revenue of $13,941,472.
"We feel very good about our progress and our performance so far this year. While the Third Quarter would qualify as outstanding performance by virtually all yardsticks, it could have been better," commented Randy Poole, President and CEO. "The DOD has not completed its order with us per its original schedule, delaying $750,000 of revenue, and some other larger deals have also been delayed. While the third quarter revenue was up 50% and the fourth quarter outlook is also good, we expect to see variations in our growth from quarter to quarter like most software companies do. For the full year 2007, I expect we will have revenue of $17.5MM to $18MM, short of our $20MM prior guidance.
"We like our unique position in this marketplace and we are excited about our plans for 2008. GlobalSCAPE is spending an increasing amount of our engineering resources on improving the speed, security, and network optimization of file transfer over our customers' networks. Our unique WAFS product ensures bandwidth-efficient WAN utilization because only incremental changes to files are actually transferred over the network," added Poole. "We are also exploring several new product enhancements and partnerships involving all of our product offerings, where we feel the potential is large.
"I look forward to discussing our progress and plans in our call scheduled for 4:00pm CST today," concluded Poole.
