GlobalSCAPE, Inc. Receives Notice from NYSE Regulation Regarding Late Filing of Annual Report

GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE American: GSB) (“GlobalSCAPE” or the “Company”), a worldwide leader in the secure movement and integration of data, today announced that on September 7, 2017, the Company received a notice of noncompliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Section 1007 of the Company Guide (the “Company Guide”) of NYSE American LLC (the “Exchange”). This notice of noncompliance is predicated on the Company’s failure to timely file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 (the “Delayed Form 10-K”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

The Company previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 28, 2017 that the Company had become subject to the procedures and requirements set forth in Section 1007 of the Company Guide as a result of its failure to timely file with the SEC its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 (the “Delayed Form 10-Q”).

As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on August 7, 2017 (the “Restatement Form 8-K”), the Company’s Audit Committee, in consultation with management, concluded that the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K (including the interim periods within that year) should no longer be relied upon. Subsequently, RSM US, LLP (“RSM”), the Company’s former independent registered public accounting firm, withdrew its report relating to its audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2016. RSM informed the Company of this withdrawal of its report through a letter dated September 5, 2017, and the Company subsequently notified the Exchange of this withdrawal. The Company then received the notification of noncompliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards referencing the Delayed Form 10-K.

In connection with the Delayed Form 10-K and the Delayed Form 10-Q, NYSE Regulation, which monitors whether an issuer listed on the Exchange has timely filed its annual and interim reports with the SEC, has informed the Company that during the period ending on February 22, 2018 (the “Initial Cure Period”), the Exchange will monitor the Company and the status of the Delayed Form 10-K, the Delayed Form 10-Q and any subsequent annual or quarterly report that the Company fails to file by the applicable due date (“Subsequent Reports”) until the amended Form 10-K with a reissued audit report, the Delayed Form 10-Q and any Subsequent Reports have been filed with the SEC. If the Company fails to file the amended Form 10-K with a reissued audit report, the Delayed Form 10-Q and any Subsequent Reports within the Initial Cure Period, the Exchange may, in the Exchange’s sole discretion, allow the Company’s securities to be traded for up to an additional six-month period (the “Additional Cure Period”) depending on the Company’s specific circumstances. NYSE Regulation has informed the Company that if the Exchange determines that an Additional Cure Period is not appropriate, suspension and delisting procedures will commence in accordance with the procedures set out in Section 1010 of the Company Guide. The Exchange may, in its sole discretion, decide (i) not to afford the Company any Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, as the case may be, at all or (ii) at any time during the Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, to truncate the Initial Cure Period or Additional Cure Period, as the case may be, and immediately commence suspension and delisting procedures if the Company is subject to delisting pursuant to any other provision of the Company Guide, including if the Exchange believes, in the Exchange’s sole discretion, that continued listing and trading of the Company’s securities on the Exchange is inadvisable or unwarranted in accordance with Sections 1001-1006 of the Company Guide.

As previously disclosed in the Restatement Form 8-K, the Company intends to effect a restatement of its financial statements through filing an amended Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and an amended Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The Company is working diligently to complete these filings as well as the Delayed Form 10-Q and intends to make all of these filings as soon as practicable, which will result in regaining compliance with the continued listing standards of the Exchange.

The Company’s common stock will continue to be listed on the Exchange under the ticker symbol “GSB” but, as previously disclosed, a “.LF” indicator is being disseminated with the Company’s ticker symbol to signify the Company’s late filing status.

The Company is making this announcement in compliance with Section 1007 of the Company Guide, which requires prompt disclosure of receipt of a notification of noncompliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
