The loss was in large part due to the acquisition of Java products, though profits would still have fallen by 44% compared to the previous quarter, to $4.5m, without the purchases.
Mike Thompson, director of research at Butler Group, commented: "BroadVision is not the only company to report lower than expected end of year results. Vignette and Intershop missed their targets also. There is [a general perception] of some resistance in the market to these large e-business solutions, given the failure of many dot coms. This is a perception that BroadVision and Vignette have to overcome."
