The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, GlobalSCAPE made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: that the Company overstated the reported amounts of accounts receivable as of December 31, 2016, and license revenue for the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, by approximately $403,000 and $396,000, respectively, resulting in the overstatement of the Company's revenues for those periods by the same amounts; that the Company's total current assets and total assets were overstated by $292,000; that the Company's total stockholder equity and total liabilities and stockholders' equity were overstated by $217,000 and $292,000, respectively; that the Company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and that as a result of the above, GlobalSCAPE's publicly disseminated financial statements were materially false and misleading.
On August 7, 2017, the Company disclosed that its Audit Committee "has been conducting an investigation into certain transactions in the fourth quarter of 2016 involving improper arrangements with customers that circumvented the Company's internal controls and their potential effect on previously reported revenue." GlobalSCAPE further revealed that "the improper arrangements with customers that circumvented the Company's internal controls have the effect of overstating the reported amounts of accounts receivable as of December 31, 2016, and license revenue for the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, by approximately $403,000 and $396,000, respectively." Following this news, GlobalSCAPE's stock price dropped materially, which caused investors harm according to the lawsuit.
