GlobalSCAPE Announces Reduction in Force as Part of Continued Cost Realignment

Share:

GlobalSCAPE,
Inc.
 (NYSE American: GSB)
today announced a reduction in force that is expected to generate
significant pre-tax savings.

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, a
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.
