Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced the Company's financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2008.
For the second quarter, Dolby reported total revenue of $172.6 million, compared to $129.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, an increase of 34 percent. Second-quarter net income was $56.8 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $39.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2007.
Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 reflects stock-based compensation expense of $6.1 million compared to $4.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2007. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 also reflects charges related to the amortization of intangibles of $4.1 million, compared to $0.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2007.
"We experienced another strong quarter across many of our global markets, including PC, gaming, and broadcast,” said Bill Jasper, President and Chief Executive Officer, Dolby Laboratories. "With our position in entertainment technology, we remain focused on developing and delivering innovations that improve the digital media experience.”
Dolby now expects fiscal 2008 revenue to be $585 million to $615 million. Net income is now expected to be $170 million to $182 million. Earnings per diluted share is now expected to be $1.47 to $1.57. While under FAS 123R stock-based compensation expense may vary based on factors such as stock price or volatility, Dolby now expects stock-based compensation expense for the full year to be approximately $22 million. In addition, Dolby now expects charges related to the amortization of intangibles for fiscal 2008 to be approximately $13 million.
As part of Dolby’s updated fiscal 2008 guidance, Dolby now expects increased licensing revenue and lower products and services revenue compared to its prior expectations. The higher licensing revenue expectations are the result of expected increased revenue from the PC market, while the lower products and services revenue expectations are due to the expectation that product revenue related to digital cinema will be deferred through fiscal 2008. Since licensing revenue carries a significantly higher margin than products and services revenue, Dolby now expects profitability to be higher in fiscal 2008 than its prior guidance.
