REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:BVSN), an innovative provider of online commerce and business social networking solutions, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010. Revenues for the fourth quarter were $5.1 million, compared with revenues of $5.2 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 and $7.2 million for the comparable quarter of 2009.

License revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.5 million, compared with $1.4 million for the prior quarter and $2.5 million for the comparable quarter of 2009. The majority of the fourth quarter license and subscription revenue was generated from the Company's BroadVision® Business Agility Suite™, Commerce Agility Suite™, QuickSilver™, and Clearvale™ solutions. Revenue during the quarter was generated from sales to both new and existing customers such as Confindustria Lombardia, Epson America, EthosIQ, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited, Maybank Singapore, Pat S.r.l., QuickLogic, WeBank and several other brand-name global customers.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, BroadVision posted net income on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis of $0.3 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net income of $1.5 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010 and GAAP net income of $0.5 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2009.

Non-GAAP measure net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $0.6 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP measure net income of $1.9 million or $0.43 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2010 and non-GAAP measure net income of $0.7 million, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2009. These non-GAAP measure results exclude restructuring charges, stock compensation expense and revaluation of warrant liabilities. A reconciliation of GAAP measure net income (loss) figures to non-GAAP net income (loss) 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.

Full-year 2010 revenues totaled $21.8 million, with GAAP net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.65 per basic and diluted share, compared to 2009 revenues of $31.0 million and GAAP net income of $3.7 million, or $0.85 per basis share and diluted share.

As of December 31, 2010 the Company had $60.8 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to a combined balance of $61.9 million as of September 30, 2010 and $61.8 million as of December 31, 2009.

"We have been making important strides in the mission to reenergize our business based on the BroadVision Clearvale social business cloud platform," said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. "In our fourth quarter, we signed several key customers and partners that will pave the way for expanding Clearvale's global ecosystem in 2011 and beyond.
