Dolby Laboratories Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYS: DLB) today announced the Company's financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. For the third quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $207.1 million, compared to $210.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Third quarter GAAP net income was $30.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $51.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, third quarter net income was $48.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $60.8 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Dolby's non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release.

"Licensing revenue increased year over year, with growth in our mobile and broadcast businesses offsetting weaker demand for PCs and consumer electronics this quarter," said Kevin Yeaman, President and CEO, Dolby Laboratories. "While the current consumer-spending environment is weak, we continue to make solid progress on our long-term growth initiatives."

Financial Outlook

Q4 2013

Dolby anticipates total revenue for the fourth quarter (Q4) of fiscal year 2013 to range from $205 million to $215 million. Gross margin percentages are projected to be approximately 90% on a GAAP basis and 91% on a non-GAAP basis.

Dolby anticipates that operating expenses will be approximately $142 million on a GAAP basis and $124 million on a non-GAAP basis.

Dolby expects diluted earnings per share to be between $0.30 and $0.36 on a GAAP basis and between $0.45 and $0.51 on a non-GAAP basis.

The Company estimates that its fiscal Q4 2013 effective tax rate will range from 27% to 28% on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.


Dolby now anticipates that total revenue for fiscal year 2013 will range from $900 million to $910 million.

Dolby now anticipates that operating expenses will be approximately $574 million on a GAAP basis and $496 million on a non-GAAP basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement Dolby's financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Dolby provides non-GAAP financial measures of gross margin, operating expense, net income, and diluted earnings per share. These measures are adjusted to exclude amounts related to stock-based compensation, expense associated with dividend equivalents paid on restricted stock units, the amortization of intangibles from business combinations, restructuring charges, and the related tax impact of these items. Dolby presents non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate Dolby's operating results in a manner that focuses on what Dolby's management believes to be its ongoing business operations. Dolby's management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review both GAAP and non-GAAP measures in order to assess the performance of Dolby's business for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. Dolby's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Whenever Dolby uses non-GAAP financial measures, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed above. Investors are also encouraged to review Dolby's GAAP financial statements as reported in its SEC filings. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this press release and on Dolby's investor relations website at
