SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (OTCBB: GSCP) reported results for its year ended December 31, 2001 in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
For the year ended December 31, 2001, GlobalSCAPE reported revenues of $5,297,688 and a net loss of $257,135 compared to revenues of $5,735,676 and net income of $314,639 for 2000. While the Company’s software product revenues increased for the year, overall revenues declined slightly between periods, resulting from the reduction of advertising revenues. GlobalSCAPE began de-emphasizing this segment of its business in the latter part of 2000 as a result of the industry-wide collapse of the Internet advertising model. GlobalSCAPE’s cost of revenues increased $123,191 from 2000 to 2001, primarily as a result of its distribution agreement with Trellix Corporation. Distribution agreements are instrumental in enhancing GlobalSCAPE’s ability to bring products to market much more rapidly than reliance on internal development alone. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $88,454 between periods. GlobalSCAPE’s increase in its research and development costs of $215,712 is attributed to the expansion of its internal development staff and product line, which included the launch of three new products in the last 12 months. Excluding non-recurring, non-cash compensation charges of $405,000, the Company produced net income on a pro forma basis of $147,865 in 2001. Please refer to the attached table.
Tim Nicolaou, GlobalSCAPE’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, "In 2001, GlobalSCAPE performed well in several key areas. Excluding the non-cash compensation charges, we continue to produce positive net income, we are controlling our SG&A expenses, and we are less dependent on any single product’s revenue than we were in 2000. We expanded our product line with the release of CuteFTP Pro® and we signed a distribution agreement with Trellix Corporation to distribute a Web site authoring tool under the CuteSITE Builder™ name. In January 2002, we released Secure FTP Server™, a companion product to CuteFTP Pro. Over the next year, we will continue to pursue strategic partners and distribution agreements as well as invest in research and development. These key initiatives are the catalysts that we believe will help us to achieve our revenue growth objectives."
Sandra Poole-Christal, President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "GlobalSCAPE has a track record of solid historical performance and has built a strong brand with its file management products. I believe we can leverage this brand and our expertise in software development and distribution to successfully execute our corporate strategy and enter our next phase of growth."
