GlobalSCAPE Announces Reduction in Force as Part of Continued Cost Realignment
The Company has been executing a strategy to streamline its organization around its flagship offering – Enhanced File Transfer™ (EFT™). These changes apply globally, although the changes are mainly focused in North America. Part of this strategy is to enable GlobalSCAPE to better focus on its customers running EFT while remaining agile enough to adjust to market demands.
“GlobalSCAPE is making good progress with its transformation. This reduction in force, while difficult, is an essential part of making the organization a stronger technological partner for our customers, better investment for our shareholders, and a work environment rich with opportunity for our employees,” said Matt Goulet, president and chief executive officer. “We are realigning our sales team to better service our customers and finding more efficient operational processes.”
The reduction will impact approximately 40 employees. Customary transition assistance will be provided to affected employees.
Due to the reduction in force, the Company expects to incur total restructuring charges in the third quarter 2018 of approximately $400,000 on a pre-tax basis.
