By BroadVision on October 26, 2011

Redwood City, CA — October 26, 2011 — BroadVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: BVSN), a leader in cloud-based social business solutions, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2011. Revenues for the third quarter were $4.2 million, compared with revenues of $4.0 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011 and $5.2 million for the comparable quarter of 2010.

License revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.1 million for the prior quarter and $1.4 million for the comparable quarter of 2010. The majority of the third 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 for Railway Information Systems, CROSSOVER Europe s.r.l., Front Burner Restaurants LP, Honeywell International Inc., InTouch European Economic Interest Group (EEIG), Saipem S.p.A., SDE Consulting, TechTreeIT Systems (P) Ltd., Zain Group and several other brand-name global customers.

In the third quarter of 2011, BroadVision posted net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) basis of $1.6 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.34 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011 and GAAP net income of $1.5 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP measure net loss for the third quarter of 2011 was $1.5 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP measure net loss of $1.1 million or $0.25 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011 and non-GAAP measure net income of $1.9 million, or $0.43 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 figures to non-GAAP net loss figures is included in a table on the attached condensed unaudited 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 September 30, 2011 the Company had $56.8 million of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to a combined balance of $60.8 million as of December 31, 2010.

“We are pleased with the progress we’ve been making with the BroadVision Clearvale social business solutions suite,” said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. “Most significant was a total of 70 new paid customer and partner wins in the third quarter, a new record. While most of these orders remain relatively small because customers generally start with a limited trial for something as new as social business, it represents considerable potential upside for future growth as these customers expand their usage down the road upon successful adoption. It also offers a proof point that Clearvale PaasPort, our primary go-to market partnering strategy, is a compelling and scalable business model and marketing strategy, as most of these new wins were contributed by our PaasPort partners. 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.”
