SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2018--GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB ), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, has reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial OverviewTotal revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $8.5 million, which was consistent with the amount reported for the second quarter of 2017. Revenue from the Company’s core EFT platform increased 1% to $8.1 million. License revenue from the platform increased 3% to $2.6 million, primarily due to an increase in the number of large transactions, including transactions that were originally expected to close in the previous quarter, and a change in the Company’s lead generation strategy toward the end of 2017 which led to an increase in sales opportunities. Maintenance and support (M&S) revenue from the platform increased 2% to $5.1 million, primarily due to ongoing license sales and sustained high M&S renewal rates. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $6.9 million (81.5% of total revenue), which was consistent with the $6.9 million (81.9% of total revenue) reported for the second quarter of 2017. Net income totaled $593,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, an increase of 30% from $457,000 or $0.02 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA (1) increased 5% to $1.1 million from the amount reported for the second quarter of 2017. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments of approximately $27.8 million.

Management Commentary from Matt Goulet, President and CEO of GlobalSCAPE
“Our results for the second quarter of 2018 came in largely as we expected. Our total revenue of $8.5 million remained consistent with the amount reported last year, as we worked through the final stages of the internal investigation and the sales distractions that came with it. Nevertheless, we were still able to grow license and M&S revenue by 3% and 2% year-over-year, respectively, giving us a platform for more robust growth as we complete the realignment of our sales force to better address the increasing needs and requirements of our customers. Perhaps most importantly, we continued to drive improvements to our bottom line with net income for the quarter up 30% year-over-year. We also maintained our strong cash position, which ended the quarter at $27.8 million, enabling us to continue investing in our business to drive growth and market share expansion while also returning capital to our shareholders.
“Over the past few weeks, we have made significant enhancements to our business, which we believe will allow us to build on our operational momentum and better execute on our strategy of becoming a cloud-based software and services provider of MFT technology. As part of our continued efforts to realign and reduce costs, we recently reduced our staff by approximately 40 employees. We believe that, as a result, our operating expenses will decrease going forward without significantly impacting our revenue or growth opportunities, as we enhance our focus on our flagship EFT offering.
“Additionally, we also strengthened our leadership team with the promotion of our interim CFO, Karen Young, to CFO, as well as expanded our Board of Directors with the appointment of Robert Alpert and Clark Webb. We believe these additions enhance our bench strength and give us the right guidance and tools to reaccelerate the business. Overall, it’s been a productive and meaningful last couple of months for GlobalSCAPE. We honed in on our core EFT offering, right-sized the business, and added significant experience and insights to the Board. Collectively, these actions have set the stage for what we expect to be a stronger second half of 2018 and beyond.”
