Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Highlights:

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, January 30, 2014, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance:

First Quarter 2014*: The Company expects revenue to be $28.8 million to $29.5 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $2.5 million to $2.9 million. Assuming approximately 31.1 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.09 to $0.10, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and merger-related expenses.

Full Year 2014*: The Company is reiterating the guidance issued on January 6th for revenue to be $126.0 million to $130.0 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $9.0 million to $12.0 million. Assuming approximately 32.1 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.31 to $0.40, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and merger-related expenses.

*With respect to the Company's expectations under "Business Outlook" above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP loss per share to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share because at this time the Company is unable to forecast the amortization of intangible assets related to the anticipated acquisition of Unicorn Media, which is a reconciling item between those Non-GAAP and GAAP measures. Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP loss per share is not available at this time.

These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Although we believe that our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that the plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and will be affected by a variety of risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation, risks associated with the successful completion of the acquisition of Unicorn Media, difficulties integrating the techonologies, products, operations, existing contracts and personnel of Unicorn Media and realizing the anticipated benefits of the combined business; our history of losses, our limited operating history; expectations regarding the widespread adoption of customer demand for our products; our ability to expand the sales of our products to customers located outside the U.S., keeping up with the rapid technological change required to remain competitive in our industry, our ability to retain existing customers; our ability to manage our growth effectively and successfully recruit additional highly-qualified personnel; and the price volatility of our common stock, and other risks set forth under the caption "Risk Factors" in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, as updated by our subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our other SEC filings.

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 income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders. 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 exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, merger-related costs and merger-related income tax adjustments. Merger-related costs include fees incurred in connection with closing an acquisition in addition to fees associated with the retention of key employees. Merger-related income tax adjustments include one-time charges or benefits that are incurred in connection with an acquisition. 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. The Company’s earnings press releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can be found on the Investors section of the Company’s web site at http://www.brightcove.com.
