Brightcove Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter 2015

Company reports adjusted EBITDA of $620,000

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Brightcove Inc. (Nasdaq: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud services for video, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

"Brightcove reported second quarter results that were in-line with our profitability expectations, while revenue was slightly below expectations due to the timing of certain customer renewals," said David Mendels, Chief Executive Officer of Brightcove. "We are delivering positive performance in many areas of the company, especially in North America and Japan, though we have seen some softness in our European business. We have taken steps to improve our execution in Europe and believe they will improve results going forward."

Mendels continued, "From a demand perspective, our digital marketing business is gaining traction, reflecting the significant opportunity for video as part of the cloud marketing automation stack. We are also seeing early interest from Media companies in our ad yield optimization solution that combines Brightcove Perform and Brightcove Once to significantly improve content monetization. We remain confident our strategy can deliver consistent double-digit growth in the future, while also generating strong shareholder value."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Brightcove has provided in this release the non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP diluted net loss per share. Brightcove uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Brightcove's ongoing operational performance. Brightcove believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Brightcove's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. As noted, the non-GAAP financial results discussed above of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP diluted net loss per share exclude stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and merger-related expenses. The non-GAAP financial results discussed above of adjusted EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income (loss), plus stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, merger-related expenses, depreciation expense, other income/expense, including interest expense and interest income, and the provision for income taxes. Merger-related expenses include fees incurred in connection with closing an acquisition in addition to fees associated with the retention of key employees. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.
