Financial report summary

MicrosoftMeta PlatformsOracleSlack
  • Following our VMSO financing in 2019, our ability to benefit from our Clearvale and Vmoso platforms and our MVN initiatives have been significantly reduced.
  • We continue to introduce new products, services and technologies and our business will be harmed if we are not successful in selling these offerings to our existing customers and new customers.
  • We face liquidity challenges and will need additional financing in the future.
  • We have introduced Cloud-based offerings. Our business will be harmed and our growth potential will be limited, if we are unable to provide reliable, scalable, and cost-efficient Cloud hosting operation.
  • Current and potential competitors could make it difficult for us to acquire and retain customers now and in the future.
  • If we are unable to keep pace with the rapid technological changes in online commerce, portal, social networking and enterprise software, our products and services may fail to be competitive.
  • We have a history of losses and our future profitability on a quarterly or annual basis is uncertain, which could have a harmful effect on our business and the value of BroadVision common stock.
  • Our quarterly operating results are volatile and difficult to predict, and our stock price may decline if we fail to meet the expectations of securities analysts or investors.
  • Our sales and product implementation cycles are lengthy and subject to delay, which make it difficult to predict our quarterly results.
  • Because a significant portion of our sales activity occurs at the end of each fiscal quarter, delays in a relatively small number of license transactions could adversely affect our quarterly operating results.
  • If we are unable to maintain our disclosure controls and procedures, including our internal control over financial reporting, our ability to report our financial results on a timely and accurate basis may be adversely affected.
  • We are dependent on direct sales personnel and third-party distribution channels to achieve revenue growth.
  • We may be unable to manage or grow our international operations and assets, which could impair our overall growth or financial position.
  • Our success and competitive position will depend on our ability to protect our proprietary technology.
  • A breach of the encryption technology that we use could expose us to liability and harm our reputation, causing a loss of customers.
  • The loss or malfunction of technology from third parties could delay the introduction of our products and services.
  • Our use of open source software could negatively affect our ability to sell our products and subject us to possible litigation.
  • Our officers, and highly skilled technical and managerial personnel are critical to our business, and they may not remain with us.
  • Limitations on the online collection of profile information could impair the effectiveness of our products.
  • We may not have adequate back-up systems, and natural or manmade disasters could damage our operations, reduce our revenue and lead to a loss of customers.
  • We are subject to foreign currency exchange risk.
  • Our business could be negatively affected as a result of actions of activist stockholders.
  • Weakened global economic conditions or tariffs and other trade restrictions may harm our industry, business, and results of operations.
  • VMSO has no history operating and managing a platform utilizing blockchain-based technology, which makes it difficult to evaluate its ability to generate revenue through operation of such a platform, and at the date of this filing, VMSO has not generated revenue from any blockchain-based products.
  • VMSO’s management has relatively little experience in the blockchain technology industry.
  • Even if VMSO successfully develops MVN, it may not be able to successfully market and launch MVN, or MVN and MVT may not be widely adopted.
  • MVN and MVT, if successfully developed and launched, may not function properly.
  • MVN and blockchains on which MVN and its associated cryptocurrency may rely may be the target of malicious cyber-attacks or may contain exploitable flaws in its underlying code, which may result in security breaches and the loss or theft of cryptocurrency tokens or other digital assets. If such attacks occur or security is compromised, this could expose us to liability and reputational harm and could seriously curtail the adoption and utilization of MVN and could result in claims against us. This is a significant risk in light of the importance of consumer trust to MVN’s success.
  • One stockholder beneficially owns a substantial portion of the outstanding BroadVision common stock, and as a result exerts substantial control over us.
  • Our stock price has been highly volatile.
