Net income for the first quarter of 2020 remained unchanged from the previous year at $2.4 million. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.12 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $0.14 for the first quarter of 2019.

“The first quarter marked the release of our Enhanced File Transfer™ 2020 (EFT 2020) platform, the eighth generation of GlobalSCAPE’s managed file transfer platform and the most robust version ever developed,” said Robert Alpert, Chairman of GlobalSCAPE’s Board of Directors and CEO. “EFT 2020 arms enterprises with industry-leading controls needed to meet stringent regulations, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Not only are we solving compliance headaches, but we are delivering unmatched simplicity and performance for global enterprises. Recognizing our innovation, EFT 2020 won the Gold Cybersecurity Excellence Award in this year’s Secure File Transfer category.”
“Unfortunately, the first quarter was overshadowed by COVID-19. In March our focus was on employee safety and client care. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we had plans, processes and technology in place to equip a fully remote workforce. We have transitioned our teams from our office to their homes. All our operations have been uninterrupted and teams are functioning at high levels. We did experience weakness in first quarter license sales as our clients evaluated the impact of the global pandemic. With the upheaval caused by COVID-19, we believe some clients and prospects decided to defer their buying decisions to the future as a countermeasure to global economic uncertainty. I am exceptionally proud of our employees as they continue to provide award-winning products and world class service to our global client base. Although we did not repurchase shares in the first quarter, we will continue to monitor capital markets for opportunities to repurchase shares and consider other actions designed to enhance shareholder value.”
