DTS Reports Second Quarter 2010 Results

CALABASAS, Calif.–DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.

For the second quarter of 2010, revenue was $17.5 million. In the second quarter of 2009, revenue was $24.2 million, which included $13.0 million of litigation and royalty recovery settlements. For comparative purposes, excluding the unusually large recoveries recorded in the prior year’s second quarter, revenue in the second quarter of 2010 increased 56% year-over-year.

Income from continuing operations was $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2010. This compares to $3.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share reported in the second quarter of 2009.

During the quarter the Company also reported income from discontinued operations of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share net of tax from the settlement of certain legal matters related to the 2008 sale of its digital cinema business.

During the second quarter, the Company generated $6.0 million in cash from operating activities and closed the quarter with overall cash and investments of $78.1 million. Also during the period, the Company purchased 421,000 shares of its common stock for a total of $14.1 million under the share repurchase program approved by the Company’s Board of Directors in November 2009. This brings the total purchases under the current program to $26.5 million and 806,000 shares. Currently, 194,000 shares remain under the repurchase authorization.

“Our second quarter results reflect the increasing adoption of Blu-ray combined with a rebound in the car market and progress in diversifying the DTS brand into a new range of networked devices,” commented Jon Kirchner, Chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc. “Blu-ray represented in excess of 25% of revenue in the quarter, while the car and new markets each contributed more than 15% – slightly above our full year percentage expectations. We continued to make progress extending our presence in mobile and internet based media, which ultimately will enable high quality DTS formatted content to be enjoyed not just on Blu-ray and DVD, but from any source — anywhere, anytime, on any portable, home or car-based device.

“In summary, our second quarter financial performance wrapped up a solid first half, broadly in line with our expectations. As a result, for fiscal year 2010 we continue to expect revenues in the range of $81 to 84 million dollars, operating margins in the upper 20s, and earnings per share in the range of $0.75 to $0.80 per diluted share,” concluded Kirchner.
