In the first quarter of 2013, BroadVision posted net loss on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis of $2.1 million, or $0.46 per basic and diluted share, as compared with GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.25 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012 and GAAP net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share, for the comparable quarter of 2012.

"Although Q1 is a seasonally slower quarter, as reflected in the 10 percent revenue decline compared to Q4, we achieved a number of important milestones during the quarter, especially in the business development front," said Dr. Pehong Chen, President and CEO, BroadVision. "Continuing our two-pronged go-to-market strategy, we made very good progress in developing new channel partners across the globe via our Clearvale PaasPort program and on driving adoption into new industry segments such as industrials, financial services and other knowledge, interaction and service intensive sectors. As social business and cloud computing reach the mainstream, we believe Clearvale is very well positioned to dramatically change how people and businesses collaborate."
