REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:BVSN), a leading provider of e-business and engagement management solutions, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Revenues for the first quarter were $1.8 million, compared with revenues of $2.1 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016, and $2.0 million for the comparable quarter of 2016.

License revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $0.9 million, compared to $1.1 million for the prior quarter and $1.0 million for the comparable quarter of 2016. 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.

In the first quarter of 2017, BroadVision posted a net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) basis of $2.6 million, or $0.52 per basic and diluted share, as compared with a GAAP net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.48 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2016 and a GAAP net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.42 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2016.

“It's increasingly clear to us that companies around the world are now recognizing the importance of managing and protecting their corporate knowledge,” said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO of BroadVision. “After a long period of growth of BYOD (bring your own device) programs and unmanaged BYOA (bring your own app), many organizations have realized the dangers these bring. Vmoso's combination of knowledge management and collaborative processes make it the ideal digital workplace solution for those companies recognizing the need for a single source of truth for their communication and collaboration."
