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), adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per diluted 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 income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per diluted share exclude stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, merger-related expenses, gain from settlement of escrow claim and costs to exit a facility. 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, the provision for income taxes and costs to exit a facility. Merger-related expenses include fees incurred in connection with closing an acquisition in addition to fees associated with the retention of key employees.  The gain from settlement of escrow claim represents the value of shares settled from escrow claims in connection with the purchase of substantially all the assets of Unicorn Media, Inc. and subsidiaries.  Costs to exit a facility include termination fees and the disposal of property and equipment in connection with the closure of certain facilities for the purpose of consolidating its data centers.  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
