SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of file transfer solutions, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2009, ended March 31, 2009.
Revenue was $3.2 million, a decline of 20 percent when compared with revenue of $4.1 million in the same quarter last year. Net loss for the first quarter was $244,000, or net loss of $0.01 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $152,000, or net income of $0.01 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago.
"Our first quarter results reflect the impact of the economic downturn on both consumer and business spending during the first part of the year," said Jim Morris, GlobalSCAPE President and CEO. "As previously announced, we decided to continue making strategic investments in our business, even during the downturn, to ensure that we sustain the momentum necessary to excel as the economy strengthens. Our recent product announcements, contract wins, and partnerships validate this decision," Morris continued. "We are looking forward to a profitable second quarter, and to extending our market leadership."
In January, GlobalSCAPE announced a partnership with Network Automation to deliver a new workflow engine for EFT Server, the company’s enterprise information-sharing solution. The new workflow engine saves customers time and money as they develop workflows to streamline and automate complex processes involving file transfer.
In March, the company released EFT Server Version 6. This newest version of GlobalSCAPE’s flagship information-sharing solution reflected almost two years of cumulative development effort since the last major release of EFT Server in June 2007. No other managed file transfer product provides an equivalent level of compatibility with industry standards and support for regulatory compliance initiatives.
During March, GlobalSCAPE also announced a partnership with Carahsoft, a $300 million provider of IT solutions to the government sector. Through the Carahsoft partnership, government organizations can procure GlobalSCAPE’s solutions easily through long-term, pre-approved contract vehicles. The U.S. Army awarded GlobalSCAPE a $2.7 million U.S. Army contract, announced in April, using Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule.
"We added numerous new enterprise-level customers during the first quarter and expanded our presence in other customer IT environments during the first quarter," Morris noted. "Customers have responded positively to our latest version of EFT Server, recognizing the powerful new features in this solution as well as the importance of our numerous certifications and validations awarded during the past year. We also have received increasing interest from other prospective partners within our industry and in adjacent market spaces."
