Bazaarvoice Comments On U.S. District Court Ruling

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bazaarvoice, Inc. (Nasdaq:BV) today announced that the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California (the "Court") ruled in favor of the Department of Justice ("DOJ") in its antitrust action challenging Bazaarvoice's acquisition of PowerReviews. The Court has scheduled a hearing for January 22, 2014 to begin remedy proceedings. Bazaarvoice will not make a decision regarding an appeal until after the Court concludes the remedy phase of the litigation.

"We are disappointed in the outcome of the litigation. We believe that the merger with PowerReviews has been beneficial to customers, as did the more than 100 customers who testified that they did not believe that the acquisition affected them adversely in any way," said Gene Austin, president of Bazaarvoice. "Throughout this process, our focus has remained on serving our clients and providing them with a full range of social software that helps them engage more powerfully with their customers. With the Court's decision, we'll now do everything we can to help ensure that the final order achieves the best outcome for our clients, shareholders, and employees."
