By BroadVision on January 26, 2012

Redwood City, CA — January 26, 2012 — 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, 2011. Revenues for the fourth quarter were $4.2 million, compared with revenues of $4.2 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011 and $5.1 million for the comparable quarter of 2010.

License revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $1.6 million, compared with $1.3 million for the prior quarter and $1.5 million for the comparable quarter of 2010. 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 Centre National de l’Expertise Hospitalière (CNEH), CoGeDi International SpA, Groupe Auchan SA, La Poste, NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, The Talking Village s.r.l., WeBank SpA, and several other brand-name global customers.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, BroadVision posted net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) basis of $1.8 million, or $0.40 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011 and GAAP net income of $0.3 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP measure net loss for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $1.4 million, or $0.30 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP measure net loss of $1.5 million or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011 and non-GAAP measure net income of $0.7 million, or $0.14 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.

Full-year 2011 revenues totaled $17.6 million, with GAAP net loss of $5.4 million, or $1.20 per basic and diluted share, compared to 2010 revenues of $21.8 million and GAAP net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.65 per basis share and diluted share.

As of December 31, 2011 the Company had $54.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to a combined balance of $56.8 million as of September 30 2011 and $60.8 million as of December 31 2010.

In addition, the Company noted that, during the past few weeks, there has been an unusually large amount of trading activity and price movement in its stock. The Company is not aware of any corporate developments that it believes would explain this unusual activity.

“With the close of Q4, we concluded 2011 with impressive growth in Clearvale over 2010, including the number of networks and users, paid customers and revenue bookings, despite a tough global business environment and the expected decline from our legacy business due to market maturity,” said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. “Looking ahead at 2012, we will continue to execute our two-prong go-to-market strategy of focusing on channel partners via our Clearvale PaasPort program and on driving adoption via our Clearvale Social Enterprise Transformation (SET) program. As social business and cloud computing reach the mainstream, we believe Clearvale is very well positioned to dramatically change how people and businesses collaborate and in doing so transform the entire industry.”
