Dolby Laboratories Reports Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Financial Results
SAN FRANCISCO — Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company’s financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 27, 2013. For the fourth quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $216.7 million, compared to $225.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. For fiscal 2013, Dolby reported total revenue of $909.7 million, compared to $933.0 million for fiscal 2012.
Fourth quarter GAAP net income was $45.8 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, compared to $51.5 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, fourth quarter net income was $58.8 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared to $63.8 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.
Fiscal year GAAP net income was $189.3 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, compared to $264.3 million, or $2.46 per diluted share, for fiscal 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, fiscal year net income was $250.1 million, or $2.43 per diluted share, compared to $306.9 million, or $2.85 per diluted share, for fiscal 2012. Dolby’s non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release.
“Fourth quarter results came in better than expected, as we saw growth in our mobile and broadcast markets,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and CEO, Dolby Laboratories. “Looking beyond these markets, Dolby Voice is our newest offering aimed at driving long term growth. BT recently launched BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice, a service which makes conference calls sound much more like in-person meetings.”
Dolby estimates that total revenue will range from $205 million to $215 million. Gross margin percentages are projected to range between approximately 90 percent to 91 percent on a GAAP basis and 91 percent to 92 percent on a non-GAAP basis.

The Company estimates that its fiscal Q1 2014 effective tax rate will be between approximately 27 percent and 28 percent on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.
FISCAL YEAR 2014

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 http://investor.dolby.com/medialist.cfm.
