BROADVISION, INC. COMMENCES NEXT STEP TO RESTRUCTURE AND
SELL BUSINESS THROUGH IMPLEMENTATION OF PREPACKAGED REORGANIZATION PLAN
Redwood City, CA – March 30, 2020 – BroadVision, Inc. (“the Company”) today announced that it has taken the next step to implement the “pre-packaged” plan to restructure the business and be acquired by ESW Capital, LLC, under its previously announced Restructuring Support Agreement (the “RSA”). As expected, and as contemplated by the RSA, the Company has voluntarily filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”).
The Company’s operations are continuing as normal. Upon emergence, the Company will continue to provide customers with exceptional service and product offering.
The Company has filed a number of customary motions seeking court authorization to continue to support its operations during the expedited Court-supervised process, and employee wages and benefits will continue to be paid in the ordinary course. Under terms of the pre-packaged plan, which is subject to Court approval, all allowed claims will be paid in full, and holders of the Company’s common stock (other than ESW) are expected to receive $4.375 per common share (assuming no more than 5,142,333 shares are outstanding), plus their pro rata share of the Company’s cash on hand as of the effective date of the Plan (including proceeds from the sale of a block of IP addressed owned by the Company) after payment of certain case-related claims and expenses.
