NEW YORK – April 18, 2001– Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.KaplanFox.com) has filed a class action against BroadVision, Inc. and certain of the Company’s officers and directors in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.  The suit is brought on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased the common stock of BroadVision, Inc. (“BroadVision”) (NASDAQ: BVSN) between January 26, 2001 and April 2, 2001 inclusive (the “Class Period”).

The complaint charges BroadVision and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. BroadVision develops, markets and supports application software solutions designed for one-to-one relationship management across extended enterprises. The complaint alleges that by late 2000, BroadVision’s stock price had declined significantly due to reduced demand for its products and slowing sales.  By the time BroadVision reported its results for the 4thQ 00 on 1/25/01, BroadVision’s CEO and CFO were aware that the Company was suffering from a combination of declining demand and out of control expenses. Furthermore, they knew that BroadVision’s new version of its One-to-One Enterprise product (Version 6.0), due to be released in the 1stQ 01, did not meet J2EE standards. This would reduce demand for this new product and further impact BroadVision’s future growth and impair their ability to make future stock sales and extract future bonuses, which were tied to the Company’s performance. Thus, defendants continued to make positive but false statements about BroadVision’s business and future revenues when reporting the Company’s 4thQ 00 results.  As a result, BroadVision’s stock traded as high as $15 3/16 during the class period.

On 04/02/01, after the close of market, BroadVision announced its preliminary 1stQ 01 results, the revision of its previously reported 4thQ 00 results and a one-time charge in the 2ndQ 01.  For the fourth quarter, BroadVision restated downwards its pro-forma earnings per share by 50%, from $0.02 to $0.01.  This disclosure shocked the market, causing BroadVision’s stock to decline to $2 13/16 per share before closing at $2 31/32 on 4/3/01, inflicting hundreds of millions of dollars of damage on plaintiff and the Class.  In addition, BroadVision’s CFO sold 30,000 shares of his BroadVision stock before the bad news was revealed to the market.
