SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (AMEX: GSB), a leading developer of file centric software for the Internet, announced its financial results today for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2008.
Revenue for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2008 were $4,213,066 and $8,268,885, respectively. This compares to revenue of $6,418,025 and $10,041,172, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007. The decrease was largely due to a non-recurrent sale to the U.S. Army for approximately $2.8 million that occurred during the second quarter of 2007. Were it not for this non-recurring sale, revenue for the three month period ended June 30, 2008 would have increased by $595,000 and by $1,027,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2008. In addition, net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 were A $292,319 and $444,253, respectively. This compares to net income of $2,114,876 and $2,588,092, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007. Were it not for the U.S. Army non-recurring sale, net income for the three month period ended June 30, 2008 would have increased by $32,247 and decreased by $300,279 for the six months ended June 30, 2008.
With respect to its recent 8-K filing announcing a restatement of its 2007 and first quarter 2008 results GlobalSCAPE stated that the restatements were the result of errors in the calculation of deferred taxes. While these restatements resulted in a decrease in net income for both periods, it also resulted in a tax refund due to the Company of $817,343.
David L. Mann, GlobalSCAPE’s interim President stated, "While we continue to seek large non-recurrent sales like the sale to the U.S. Army, we believe that the continued growth in our core business is critical to our success. We are pleased that our core business has continued to grow even in a difficult environment. We continue to believe that our efforts in introducing new products will begin to bear fruit in the fourth quarter of this year."
