BOSTON, Mass. (July 26, 2012) – Brightcove Inc. (Nasdaq: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for publishing and distributing professional digital media, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. The company also announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Zencoder, a leading provider of cloud-based video encoding service and creator of the popular Video.js HTML5 video player (see separate release)

“We are pleased with our second quarter results, which exceeded our guidance on both the top and bottom line,” said Jeremy Allaire, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Brightcove. “Brightcove is benefitting from growing demand as companies across a wide range of industries and size are embracing online digital content as a way to deliver more compelling experiences to their customers. Brightcove is the pioneer of this market, and we continue to extend our technology leadership and ability to meet market demand based on the innovations we are delivering across our Video Cloud and App Cloud platforms.”

Allaire added, “The acquisition of Zencoder not only strengthens our Video Cloud online video platform in a key technology area, but it also signals our expansion into standalone cloud services that developers can use as building blocks for custom systems. In addition, Zencoder is also the developer of Video.js, a fast-growing, free HTML5 video player that provides an excellent starting point for organizations that could potentially upgrade to our Video Cloud Express offering. We welcome the Zencoder team, customers, and developer communities and look forward to developing these positive synergies.”

Other Second Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Added 365 Express customers and 78 Premium customers during the quarter, including Parametric Technology, Quintiles, Chrysler and Princeton Review.
  • Signed a definitive agreement to acquire Zencoder, a leading cloud video encoding service with over 1,000 paying customers and developer of the popular Video.js free HTML5 video player. These offerings enhance and expand the Brightcove product line and create new opportunities for accelerating customer acquisition and upsell performance.
  • Introduced App Cloud Core, a new free edition of the company's pioneering app platform that empowers Web developers to use HTML5 and JavaScript to develop and operate rich native apps for Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets. App Cloud Core features an open source software development kit (SDK), powerful testing and debugging tools, unlimited cloud compilation, and real-time analytics for tracking app installations and usage.
  • Unveiled the App Cloud Dual-Screen Solution for Apple TV. The new solution enables media publishers to develop rich content apps for the iPhone and iPad that simultaneously control content, data and information presented on an HDTV while displaying synchronized content on the iPad or iPhone. The unique dual-screen solution leverages Apple's AirPlay technology, which allows viewers to use applications that simultaneously present content, interactive options and data on both the touch device and an Apple TV.
  • Announced a series of content management system (CMS) integrations enabling millions of website publishers to capitalize upon the rapid growth of online video. Using the Video Cloud platform to add video to CMS workflows is easy thanks to pre-built Video Cloud integrations available today for Adobe CQ5, Agility, Atex Polopoly, Drupal, Ektron, Microsoft Sharepoint 2010, PaperThin CommonSpot, Sitecore and WordPress.
  • Welcomed customers and partners from around the world to the Brightcove PLAY global customer conference in Boston. The event was sponsored by 21 partner organizations inlcuding Akamai, Adobe, IBM, AOL, and Google Doubleclick, and participation was up 30% over the prior year.

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, July 26, 2012, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance:

Full Year 2012: The Company expects revenue to be $85.3 million to $86.0 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $10.5 million to $9.5 million. Assuming approximately 24.5 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.47 to $0.44.

Third Quarter 2012: The Company expects revenue to be $21.1 million to $21.6 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $3.1 million to $2.8 million. Assuming approximately 27.4 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.12 to $0.11.

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 recent acquisition of Zencoder, 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Brightcove has provided in this release the non-GAAP financial measures of non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP basic and 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 exclude stock-based compensation expense, the accretion of dividends on redeemable convertible preferred stock and merger-related costs.

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.
