Dolby Laboratories Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company’s financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014. For the first quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $231.3 million, compared to $236.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

First quarter GAAP net income was $44.5 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $51.3 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, first quarter net income was $60.6 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared to $66.4 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Dolby’s non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release.

“We're pleased to report that 2014 is off to a strong start with first quarter revenues higher than originally projected and a great reception to the introduction of Dolby Vision at the Consumer Electronics Show,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and CEO, Dolby Laboratories. “We are excited about our pipeline of new offerings and are confident they will contribute to long term growth."

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement Dolby’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Dolby provides certain non-GAAP financial measures. 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 filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). 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 http://investor.dolby.com/medialist.cfm.
