GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Announces Financial Results For The Third Quarter 2018

SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2018.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was $9.0 million, an increase of nine percent when compared with revenue of $8.2 million for the third quarter of 2017. The increase in revenue is attributable to continued demand for the Company's flagship EFT platform product. Gross profit was $7.5 million, or eighty-three percent of total revenue, compared to $6.6 million, or eighty percent of total revenue in the same quarter a year ago.

Operating expenses for the third quarter decreased to $6.1 million, compared to $6.2 million in the same period a year ago.

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company's net income was $998,000 compared with net income of $276,000 for the third quarter of 2017. Earnings per share was $0.05 for the third quarter of 2018 compared with $0.01 for the third quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.5 million compared with $839,000 for the third quarter of 2017.

The Company had cash, cash equivalents and certificates of deposit of $11.2 million at September 30, 2018 compared to $27.4 million at December 31, 2017. The smaller cash balance is primarily due to the $17.3 million (including expenses) used to purchase 4,011,013 of the Company's common shares in a modified Dutch auction tender offer. As a result of the buyback, the Company has 17,968,268 shares outstanding as of September 30, 2018.

Management Commentary from Matt Goulet, President and CEO of Globalscape

"In the third quarter, we continued to execute on our strategy to increase revenue, reduce operating expenses and deliver increased profitability. Revenue grew six percent compared to last quarter, while operating expenses declined five percent, excluding the one time severance charges related to our reduction in force. Our EFT product platform continues to evolve. With over two decades of experience in the managed file transfer space, Globalscape is uniquely positioned to develop product enhancements that strengthen customer relationships and win new business. We had some particulary large deals in the quarter and continue to expand our focus on enterprise customers."

"The modified Dutch auction tender offer was a success with the Company buying back 18.2% of our shares outstanding. The Company continues to evaluate the most efficient use of its quarterly free cash flow and strong balance sheet."

In October, Robert Alpert and Clark Webb were elected as directors to serve three year terms, with Mr. Alpert serving as chairman. Together with other board members and the management team, insider beneficial ownership is approximately 34%. We are aligned with long-term shareholders and dedicated to growing revenue and profitability.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a stock repurchase program. Under the program, the Company may purchase up to $5,000,000 of its outstanding common stock. Under the stock repurchase program, the Company intends to repurchase shares through authorized Rule 10b5-1 plans (which would permit the Company to repurchase shares when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws), open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions, block purchases or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

The Company anticipates filing during the fourth quarter a registration statement with the SEC to register for resale certain shares owned by 210/GSB Acquisition Partners, LLC ("210/GSB"), Robert Alpert, C. Clark Webb, Thomas W. Brown and David L. Mann. As of October 29, 2018, 210/GSB, Robert Alpert, C. Clark Webb, Thomas W. Brown and David L. Mann own an aggregate of 7,089,986 shares of common stock. Any sale of shares by such parties will also be required to be in compliance with all applicable Company policies and procedures. There can be no assurance as to the timing of any such registration statement and the forgoing does not constitute an offer for the sale of securities. Absent an available exemption from registration requirements, no resale of these shares will be made until a registration statement is declared effective by the SEC.
