Dolby Laboratories Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company’s financial results for the second quarter (Q2) of fiscal year 2014. For the second quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $278.6 million, compared to $249.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Second quarter GAAP net income was $75.9 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to $61.9 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter net income was $91.7 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, compared to $76.4 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Dolby’s non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release.

“We’re pleased to report our second quarter results with revenues higher than forecast,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and CEO, Dolby Laboratories. “Our broadcast business continues to outperform, and we are excited to work with great partners creating amazing consumer products such as the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and the recently unveiled Amazon Fire TV.”

Financial Outlook

Dolby estimates that total revenue will range from $205 million to $215 million. Gross margin percentages are projected to range between approximately 91% to 92% on a GAAP basis and 92% to 93% on a non-GAAP basis.

Dolby anticipates that operating expenses will be between approximately $153 million and $158 million on a GAAP basis and between $135 million and $140 million on a non-GAAP basis.

Dolby expects diluted earnings per share to be between $0.24 and $0.29 on a GAAP basis and between $0.38 and $0.43 on a non-GAAP basis.

The Company estimates that its fiscal Q3 2014 effective tax rate will be between approximately 27% and 28% on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.

FISCAL YEAR 2014

Dolby anticipates that total revenue will range from $930 million to $950 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement Dolby’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Dolby provides certain non-GAAP financial measures. 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 US Securities and Exchange Commission (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.

IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn rea...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor.
