GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) Management Reviews Industry Dynamics and Recent Achievements

As many cloud computing companies have gone public during the last year with positive success, the management of GlobalWise thought it appropriate at this time to update shareholders on the Company’s recent accomplishments, the competitive advantages of its technology, and the successes the Company is having in developing a strong partner/reseller network.

The reasons for “cloud-mania” and the success of recent IPO’s in the cloud industry space are obvious. First and foremost they have the growth metrics that investors like to see in newly listed companies. GlobalWise is no different, enjoying a healthy 52% year-over-year growth rate during the most recently reported quarter, and management anticipates continued and significant growth in the future.

While there certainly are risks, typical of any tech company, there are significant reasons for investors to be optimistic. Gross profit margins tend to be high and as cloud-computing companies scale up to take on more customers, their infrastructure costs don’t rise nearly as quickly as other companies.

Some of the biggest growth in cloud computing is coming from cloud-enabled software service providers like GlobalWise. GlobalWise anticipates turning profitable and cash flow positive in the coming months, unlike many publicly traded companies in its industry space. As the company continues to add to its already impressive client list, investors should be rewarded.

Cloud computing is a hot industry ‘buzz word’. For investors interested in cloud computing, it should be noted that Gartner is predicting that the size of the cloud computing market will reach $150 billion by 2013. IBM Market Insights predicts adoption of cloud computing to grow by 26% CAGR.

GlobalWise is a leading-edge technology company focused on the rapidly growing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) industry, which Gartner predicts will exceed $5.7 billion by 2014 with a compound annual growth rate of 10.1%. Through its cloud-based Intellivue™ ECM product line and unique Channel / OEM distribution model, the Company is well positioned to dominate in the underserved small-to-mid sized business ECM marketplace.

Intellivue™, the Company’s flagship platform, offers substantial savings to any size organization in virtually any industry by offering them immediate, secure access to all of their structured and unstructured (i.e. Word documents, JPEGs, Images, Audio Files, Video Files, Email w/ Attachments, Fax, Hard-copy documents, etc.) corporate information at their desktop or mobile devices (i.e. iPad or iPhone technologies) via the Web. Utilizing this system flexibility, Intellivue™ has seen great success in the target vertical markets by building ‘on-demand’ process solution templates that are pre-configured with 90% ‘best-practice’ for immediate economic and improved operational impact by enabling ‘quicker-time-to-value’ and increased client adoption.

The Company’s ECM service is delivered to customers via five unique delivery models that cover the full spectrum of business needs: Cloud/SaaS (Software as a Service); Hardware Vendor Integrated Service; Software Vendor Integrated Service; Premise (Client-Server); and Hybrid (Premise & Cloud/SaaS). This diversity provides advanced security and privacy features with an on-demand structure for businesses in the large, underserved small-to-mid sized business markets.
