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."

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.
