/ Source: GlobeNewswire

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:BVSN), a leader in cloud-based social business solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2011. Revenues for the first quarter were $5.1 million, compared with revenues of $5.1 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010 and $5.9 million for the comparable quarter of 2010.

License revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $1.5 million, compared with $1.5 million for the prior quarter and $1.9 million for the comparable quarter of 2010. The majority of the first 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 Auchan Group, Collective HR Solutions, EFG Bank, Gruppo Reti, hiSoft, Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Sempla, Sony, Twin Peaks Restaurants and several other brand-name global customers.

In the first quarter of 2011, BroadVision posted net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis of $0.4 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010 and GAAP net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP measure net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.02 million, or $0.004 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP measure net income of $0.6 million or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010 and non-GAAP measure net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2010. These non-GAAP measure results exclude restructuring charges and stock compensation expense. 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, 2011 the Company had $60.9 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to a combined balance of $60.8 million as of December 31, 2010 and $62.8 million as of March 31, 2010.

"We continue to make important progress for the BroadVision Clearvale social business solutions suite," said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. "In the first quarter, we launched Clearvale Express, a streamlined freemium version of Clearvale, gaining solid momentum in the marketplace, which we expect to generate critical viral effect and positive deal flow downstream. On our flagship Clearvale Enterprise front, we saw monthly usage across all networks doubling quarter over quarter, as more customers have deployed successfully and adoption rates are increasing. With Clearvale PaasPort, our go-to market solution and program for telecom and other service providers to gain the fastest path to establishing their own social business ecosystems in the cloud, we signed several new partners across the world, including another major telecommunications company in Asia. As social business and cloud computing reach mainstream, we believe Clearvale is very well positioned to dramatically change how people and businesses collaborate and in doing so transform the entire industry."
