Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Highlights:

Business Outlook

Based on information as of today, January 31, 2013, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance:

First Quarter 2013*: The Company expects revenue to be $23.5 million to $24.0 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $2.0 million to $2.3 million. Assuming approximately 28.0 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.08 to $0.10.

Full Year 2013*: The Company expects revenue to be $102 million to $105 million, and non-GAAP operating loss to be $4.5 million to $6.5 million. Assuming approximately 28.4 million shares outstanding, Brightcove expects its non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share to be $0.18 to $0.25.

*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 to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share because the Company does not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, merger-related expenses, merger-related income tax adjustments 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 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 is not available without unreasonable effort.

2013 Executive Transition Plan

Brightcove also announced today an executive transition plan for 2013. David Mendels, currently President and Chief Operating Officer of Brightcove, will become the Company's Chief Executive Officer following the completion of the first quarter 2013. Jeremy Allaire will continue to serve in his role as Chief Executive Officer during this transition period and will become Executive Chairman of the Board at the beginning of the second quarter of 2013, at which time he will continue to be actively involved in the company's strategic planning, product development and key customer relationships.

Mendels has served as Brightcove's President and Chief Operating Officer since 2010. Prior to joining Brightcove, Mendels was Senior Vice President and General Manager of Adobe's Business Productivity Unit, where he was responsible for over $1 billion in revenue from products including Acrobat, Connect, LiveCycle and Flex. He joined Adobe following their acquisition of Macromedia, where he had successive executive roles including in Sales, Marketing, Business Development/Corporate Strategy and as General Manager and Executive Vice President of Product for the company's Web Publishing business unit.

"As a founder of Brightcove, I couldn't be prouder of the company's accomplishments over the last eight years, which has put us in a position to cross the $100 million in revenue milestone during 2013," said Jeremy Allaire. "One of the pillars of our success has been the strength of the team that we have put in place, including David Mendels, who has played a critical role in leading Brightcove's sales, marketing and product development processes as our President and Chief Operating Officer. David is the right person to lead Brightcove into its next stage of growth and I am thrilled to have an executive with his background and experience succeeding me as CEO. I look forward to continuing to work with David."

"I'm honored to be named CEO of Brightcove and am excited to lead the company in its next phase of growth as we work to fulfill its mission of publishing the world's professional digital media," said David Mendels, President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Executive Officer-Designate. "I believe we have a great opportunity to further expand our long-term leadership position in this dynamic market and to create a very large company over time."

These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts and statements identified by words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates" or words of similar meaning. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Although we believe that our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that the plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and will be affected by a variety of risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation, risks associated with our history of losses, our limited operating history; expectations regarding the widespread adoption of customer demand for our Video Cloud, App Cloud and Zencoder products; our ability to expand the sales of our products to customers located outside the U.S., keeping up with the rapid technological change required to remain competitive in our industry, our ability to retain existing customers; our ability to manage our growth effectively and successfully recruit additional highly-qualified personnel; and the price volatility of our common stock, and other risks set forth under the caption "Risk Factors" in the Company's final prospectus related to its initial public offering filed pursuant to Rule 424b under the Securities Act with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 17, 2012, as updated by our subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and our other SEC filings. We assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this document as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

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 accretion of dividends on redeemable convertible preferred stock, amortization of acquired intangible assets, merger-related costs and merger-related income tax adjustments. Merger-related costs include fees incurred in connection with closing an acquisition in addition to fees associated with the retention of key employees. Merger-related income tax adjustments include one-time charges or benefits that are 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 web site at http://www.brightcove.com.
