DTS Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

CALABASAS, Calif., Aug. 8, 2011 — DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq:DTSI) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

For the second quarter of 2011, revenue increased 18% to $20.6 million, and income from continuing operations increased 67% to $2.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. This compares to revenue of $17.5 million and income from continuing operations of $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, reported in the same period of 2010. Included in second quarter of 2011 results is $2.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share net of tax, in stock-based compensation expense and $321,000, or $0.01 per diluted share net of tax, in amortization of intangible assets.

The Company achieved non-GAAP operating margins of 34% and non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $4.2 million, or $0.24 per diluted share net of tax, in the second quarter of 2011, excluding the above-mentioned charges. This compares to non-GAAP operating margins of 26% and non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $2.8 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, reported in the second quarter of 2010.

The Company generated $6.7 million in cash flow from operations, and closed the second quarter with $99.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments. During the quarter, DTS repurchased 300,000 shares for a total of $12.4 million under the current repurchase program, bringing total share repurchase activity to $87.3 million since inception.

For the six months ended June 30, 2011 revenue increased 21% to $47.4 million, and income from continuing operations increased 51% to $8.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. This compares to revenue of $39.2 million and income from continuing operations of $5.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, reported in the same period of 2010. The Company achieved non-GAAP operating margins of 40% and non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $11.3 million, or $0.63 per diluted share net of tax, in the six months ended June 30, 2011, excluding the above-mentioned charges. This compares to non-GAAP operating margins of 34% and non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $8.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, reported in the same period of 2010.

The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciling items, for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, can be found in the “Non-GAAP Results” reconciliation attached to this press release.

“Our second quarter performance completes our seasonally slowest period and a solid first half of 2011, broadly in line with our expectations,” commented Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc. “We continued to see strong contributions from the Blu-ray, network-connected and automotive markets, offset by low recovery payments and softer than expected game console revenues. Importantly, we saw the first phones released from Huawei which support DTS post-processing technologies. We expanded our relationship with LG which is now selling DTS enabled smart TVs into more countries. In addition, LG has incorporated DTS technology into their flagship 3D phone platform, which is now being released in more than 60 countries. Lastly, we recently reached a major business milestone with the release of the first DTS-enabled tablet from Pantech, the Vega N5–a crossover product that combines a tablet with phone capabilities, which extends our footprint into this fast growing market.

“In light of growing concerns about the macro-economic environment and softening consumer spending, we are now taking a more cautious approach and slightly reducing our fiscal year revenue outlook to $95 to 100 million. Non-GAAP operating margins are expected to be in the low 40′s, and non-GAAP EPS in the range of $1.30 to $1.42 per diluted share, excluding the impact of both stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles, and the estimated tax impact of those items. Stock-based compensation expense will be in the range of $0.32 to $0.34 per share net of tax in 2011. On a GAAP basis, operating margins will be in the low 30s, and EPS in the range of $0.94 to $1.05 cents per diluted share.

“Importantly, as we look to 2012 we see increasing design wins in the fast growing network connected space and expect continued growth in Blu-ray, which will drive attractive growth rates over the long term. Thus, with a long-term focus on the tremendous opportunities ahead, we intend to continue to actively repurchase shares in the open market,” concluded Kirchner.
