Item 2.06 Material Impairments

On November 2, 2012, CoreTrace Corporation completed the sale of a substantial portion of its assets to an unrelated third party. That transaction triggered provisions of a software escrow agreement under which the source code for appShield, the product CoreTrace was developing for GlobalSCAPE, Inc., was released to GlobalSCAPE for our further development with CoreTrace ceasing further appShield development on GlobalSCAPE’s behalf. GlobalSCAPE retained its existing exclusive and non-exclusive licenses to develop and sell the appShield product with an elimination of its obligation to pay CoreTrace a royalty on those sales.

On November 5, 2012, the Board of Directors of GlobalSCAPE concluded that a material charge was required for impairment to GlobalSCAPE’s investment in and notes receivable from CoreTrace under generally accepted accounting principles applicable to GlobalSCAPE. Accordingly, in GlobalSCAPE’s financial statements as of September 30, 2012, and for the three and nine months then ended that will be included in GlobalSCAPE’s Form 10-Q to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before November 14, 2012, the carrying value of these assets related to CoreTrace will be reduced to zero and a corresponding asset impairment expense of $3.3 million will be reported. This asset impairment expense does not affect our current cash balance. GlobalSCAPE believes that there will be no future cash expenditures related to this impairment charge.

On November 5, 2012, GlobalSCAPE filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission announcing it had posted to its website questions and answers related to CoreTrace Corporation and GlobalSCAPE’s appShield product. Those questions and answers are available at and the SEC’s website at
