BroadVision Announces First Quarter 2010 Results

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:BVSN), an innovative provider of online commerce and business social networking solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2010. Revenues for the first quarter were $5.9 million, compared with revenues of $7.2 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009 and $8.0 million for the comparable quarter of 2009.

License revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was $1.9 million, compared with $2.5 million for the prior quarter and $2.9 million for the comparable quarter of 2009.  The majority of the first quarter license and subscription revenue was generated from the Company's BroadVision® Business Agility Suite™, Commerce Agility Suite™, QuickSilver™, eMerchandising™, CLEAR™ and Clearvale™ solutions. Revenue during the quarter was generated from sales to both new and existing customers such as Toshiba, UCPA (Union Nationale des Centres Sportifs de Plein Air stands for National Union of sports centers in Open Air), Avant Grade, La Poste, Indian Ministry of Defense - Controller General of Defense Accounts, Gemeente Tilburg, Aeroxchange Ltd., Hong Kong Baptist Hospital, The Conversation Group, Raytheon, Fidelity Investments, and Health Care Services Corp., and several other brand-name global customers.

In the first quarter of 2010, BroadVision posted net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis of $2.3 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009 and GAAP net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP measure net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $1.5 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP measure net income of $0.7 million or $0.16 per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2009 and non-GAAP measure net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2009. These non-GAAP measure results exclude restructuring charges (credits), stock compensation expense and revaluation of warrant liabilities. A reconciliation of GAAP measure net (loss) income figures to non-GAAP net (loss) income figures is included in a table on the attached financial statements. The Company believes these non-GAAP measure results provide useful information because they reflect the Company's financial performance excluding certain charges, credits, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its ongoing operations.

As of March 31, 2010 the Company had $62.8 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to a combined balance of $61.8 million as of December 31, 2009.

"Transitioning from license-centric 1.0 on-premise software to subscription-centric 2.0 cloud-based SaaS, in terms of both solution set and business model, is a time-consuming process that may require several quarters of runway before taking off," said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. "Despite the short-term challenge, we remain committed to our Clearvale Enterprise Social Networking vision and solution, and are very positive about its tremendous potential over the long run. Across the board, Clearvale's growth in networks, membership, usage, subscription, and channel partnerships have been gaining substantial momentum since the beginning of this year. With an aggressive go-to market campaign targeted for later this quarter, we believe we will lay a very solid foundation for future growth."
