Dolby Laboratories Reports Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year-End Financial Results

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company’s financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 28, 2012. For the fourth quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $224.8 million, compared to $243.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Fourth quarter GAAP net income was $51.5 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $79.1 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, fourth quarter net income was $63.8 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared to $89.9 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Fiscal year GAAP net income was $264.3 million, or $2.46 per diluted share, compared to $309.3 million, or $2.75 per diluted share, for fiscal 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, fiscal year net income was $306.9 million, or $2.85 per diluted share, compared to $339.9 million, or $3.02 per diluted share, for 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.

“Fourth quarter revenue came in higher than expected, primarily due to strength in mobile devices,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Dolby Laboratories. “We continue to see increasing adoption of our technologies in smartphones and tablets, and during the quarter, Amazon incorporated Dolby as a key feature in its latest family of Kindle Fire HD products.”
