Fiscal 2016 Business Highlights:

Corporate: Globalscape had several corporate milestones in 2016, including:

Technology: Globalscape refocused on extending the capabilities of its Enhanced File TransferTM (EFTTM) platform, releasing a number of new features and functionalities in 2016, including:

  • Advanced Authentication Module (AAM) and the Workspaces Outlook plugin: AAM provides a single source of authentication across a customer’s infrastructure. The Workspaces Outlook plugin performs secure ad hoc file transfers via email, providing customers with the reporting features in EFT and combining them with the simplicity and security of sending files with Mail Express®. The integration of the two products takes the best features in Mail Express and incorporates them into EFT.
  • Globalscape also made EFT Enterprise available in the Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure Marketplaces.  

Technology Alliances: In keeping with a core pillar for growth, Globalscape expanded key technology alliances in 2016, including:

  • Joining F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Program (TAP): offering an interoperable solution with EFT with High Availability and F5 BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ (LTM®). In jointly deploying the companies’ products, customers will have horizontal scalability, reduced system downtime and enhanced network reliability, when compared with other file transfer platforms.
  • Joining Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Partner Ready for OEM program: allowing the two companies to work together to provide solutions and resources to address organizations’ struggle to manage and secure data at rest or in motion.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words “would,” “exceed,” “should,” “anticipates,” “believe,” “steady,” “dramatic,” “expect,” and variations of such words and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, but their absence does not mean that a statement is not a forward-looking statement. These forward-looking statements are based upon the Company’s current expectations and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements are risks that are detailed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the 2015 fiscal year, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 3, 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Total Other Income/Expense, Depreciation, Amortization, other than amortization of capitalized software development costs, and Share-Based Compensation Expense) to provide it with a view of cash flow from operations that is supplemental and secondary to its primary assessment of cash flow from operating activities as presented in its condensed consolidated statement of cash flows. The Company uses EBITDA to assess cash flow from our operations prior to considering the cost of financing its business and the effects of income taxes.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. It should not be considered as a substitute for net income presented on our condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income or for cash flow from operating activities presented on our condensed consolidated statement of cash flows. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and when assessing our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or without a simultaneous reading and consideration of our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
