Management Commentary from Matt Goulet, President and CEO of Globalscape

“Q1 was yet another strong quarter for Globalscape both financially and operationally. Despite the expected seasonality during this period, revenue increased 13 percent to $8.3 million, which is the highest Q1 revenue ever achieved in our company history. Supplementing this record achievement was the encouraging growth seen across all of our major revenue streams when compared to the same time period in 2016. Most notably, revenue from our EFT platform grew 16 percent compared to the first quarter of 2016. To add to our strong topline growth, we achieved our 18th consecutive quarter of profitability, with earnings per share of $0.03, which was up 50 percent year-over-year for the quarter.

“Operationally, the start of 2017 validated the vision of our new roadmap, which is centered on accelerating our organic growth through our EFT platform, expanding our strategic partnerships, and developing and acquiring technologies that broaden our EFT capabilities and facilitate our expansion into adjacent and complementary markets. In terms of accelerating our organic growth, our demand generation activities have led to a 150 percent year-over-year increase in leads delivered to our salesforce this quarter. Expanding our strategic partnerships is a key area for enhancing and strengthening Globalscape’s existing ecosystem. At the end of the first quarter, we achieved our second Cisco Compatibility Certification with the Cisco Solution Partner Program. We also announced the availability of a Unified Communications Backup Appliance, which is focused on the management of corporate data flow. This appliance deploys our award-winning EFT SMB platform on a HPE ProLiant Server. Finally, with respect to our third key growth initiative, we made considerable progress on several data integration, cloud and data analytics offerings we currently have in the pipeline.

“Altogether, the encouraging financial results and operational progress achieved this quarter indicate that we’re on the right track to expand our leadership position in the managed file transfer market and become one of the preeminent leaders in solving the data-related challenges of today and the future."

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.
