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 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
share exclude stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of
acquired intangible assets and merger-related expenses. 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, and the provision for income taxes. Merger-related
expenses include fees 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
