REDWOOD CITY, CA — April 7, 2016 — BroadVision, Inc. (the “Company”)
(NASDAQ: BVSN), a leading provider of e-business and engagement management solutions, today announced that, on April 4, 2016, it received a written notice from the Listing Qualifications department of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company is no longer in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”) for continued listing because it had not yet filed its 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2015 (the “2015 10-K”).
As previously disclosed in the Company’s Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 31, 2016, the Company has delayed the filing of its 2015 10-K pending completion of a review of information it had recently uncovered regarding potential irregularities relating to a cash account at one of its European subsidiaries. The Company and its accounting firm are in the process of collecting and reviewing this information and will then determine whether any changes need to be made to the Company’s results of operations.
The Nasdaq letter provides that the Company has until June 3, 2016 to submit a plan to regain compliance. The Company expects to complete its review process and file its 2015 10-K in advance of the due date for the compliance plan. If the Company is unable to file its 2015 10-K by June 3, 2016, it intends to submit a compliance plan on or prior to that date. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, it can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the filing’s due date, or until September 26, 2016, to regain compliance. If Nasdaq does not accept the Company’s plan, the Company will have the opportunity to appeal that decision to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel.
