Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company’s financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2012.

For the third quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $207.9 million, compared to $219.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Third quarter GAAP net income was $51.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $61.7 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, third quarter net income was $60.8 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared to $72.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Dolby’s non-GAAP measures exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation, the amortization of intangibles from business combinations, restructuring charges, and the related tax impact of these items.

“Though we are updating our outlook to reflect a challenging global economy, we continue to execute on our long-term growth initiatives,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Dolby Laboratories. “In the third quarter, we continued to experience growth from our presence in the smartphone market, and we showcased our next-generation audio technology, Dolby Atmos , to industry-wide acclaim with the highly anticipated release of Disney Pixar’s Brave.”

For fiscal 2012, Dolby is now anticipating total revenue to range from $900 million to $920 million.


For fiscal 2012, gross margin is estimated to be approximately 90 percent, operating expenses are expected to range from $467 million to $473 million, and other income is expected to be approximately $7 million. The Company’s effective tax rate is estimated to be approximately 28 percent for fiscal 2012. Although stock-based compensation expense may vary based on factors such as stock price or volatility, total stock-based compensation expense for fiscal 2012 is anticipated to be approximately $48 million. Charges related to the amortization of acquired intangibles are expected to be approximately $11 million for the fiscal year, and restructuring charges are expected to range from approximately $1 million to $2 million in fiscal 2012.
