Based on information as of today, April 30, 2013, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance:
Second Quarter 2013*: The Company expects revenue to be $25.7 million to $26.2 million, and non-GAAP loss from operations to be $1.4 million to $1.7 million. Assuming approximately 28.2 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders to be $0.06 to $0.07.
Full Year 2013*: The Company is raising its 2013 financial guidance for revenue and non-GAAP loss from operations. Revenue is expected to be $104 million to $106 million, and non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be $3.3 million to $4.8 million. Assuming approximately 28.4 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share attributable to common stockholders to be $0.15 to $0.22.
*With respect to the Company’s expectations under “Business Outlook” above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, respectively, because the Company does not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, merger-related expenses, or amortization of acquired intangible assets, which are reconciling items between those Non-GAAP and GAAP measures. As the items that impact GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, the Company is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share attributable to common stockholders is not available without unreasonable effort.

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 attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net 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, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, merger-related expenses, and the accretion of dividends on redeemable convertible preferred stock.
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.
