DTS Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

November 08, 2012 --


41% Increase in Network-Connected Revenue Drives Year-Over-Year Growth

in Slowing Consumer Electronics Environment



Acquisition-Related Accounting and Taxes Materially Impact 2012 Earnings



CALABASAS, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq:DTSI) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.


Revenue for the third quarter was $22.2 million, including 41% year-over-year growth from the network-connected markets. This compares to revenue of $20.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. There were no royalty recoveries in the third quarter of 2012 or 2011. The 8% year-over-year growth in total revenue resulted from continued growth in the network-connected markets, particularly in connected TVs and mobile, as well as the automotive market. Blu-ray revenue was essentially flat year-over-year and up 17% sequentially. These results were partially offset by declining demand for DVD, stand-alone DMP and broadcast products.




Non-GAAP operating income in the third quarter of 2012 was $440 thousand, or 2% of revenue. Non-GAAP net loss was $11.1 million, or a loss of $0.61 per diluted share net of tax, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.5 million, or $0.26 per diluted share net of tax, in the third quarter of 2011. This net loss was primarily the result of the accounting treatment of the SRS acquisition, under which the Company recognized costs related to the acquisition without being able to recognize most of the associated revenue. This net loss was also the result of the tax impact of lower profitability on our global licensing entity located in Ireland. Under current Irish tax law, approximately $5 million of foreign withholding taxes paid over the course of 2012 are now not eligible for credit or carry-forward, a condition that is expected to persist until the end of 2012.



GAAP net loss was $19.1 million, or a loss of $1.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2012 includes $8.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share net of tax, of acquisition and integration-related costs; $2.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share net of tax, of stock-based compensation expense; and $2.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share net of tax, of amortization of intangibles. 



The GAAP and non-GAAP reconciling items for the third quarters of 2012 and 2011 can be found in the "Non-GAAP Financial Metrics" schedule attached to this press release and on the investor relations section of the Company's website at www.DTS.com.



The Company generated $6.7 million in cash flow from operations during the third quarter of 2012, compared to $4.0 million during the third quarter of 2011, and closed the quarter with cash and investments of $80.7 million. 



"Consistent with our strategy, DTS delivered attractive revenue growth in the network-connected markets despite what has been a challenging macroeconomic environment," said Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc. "We are pleased with our progress in the network-connected markets this quarter, which includes several recent smartphone and tablet product announcements. Looking ahead, with the SRS integration expected to be complete by year-end, DTS is well-positioned to capitalize on the significant market opportunities being created by an increasingly connected world. While our results through 2012 will continue to be impacted by significant acquisition-related noise, we believe the long-term prospects for our strategic markets are very much intact and we remain focused on accelerating growth in a difficult environment."



Business Outlook



DTS management expects continued long-term growth in the network-connected space, but in light of a softening near-term business environment, the Company has reduced its fiscal 2012 revenue expectations to a range of $100 to $105 million. Additionally, the accounting treatment and the related tax impact of the SRS acquisition are expected to cause 2012 non-GAAP operating margin to be approximately 20% and non-GAAP EPS to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.20 per diluted share net of tax, excluding the charges and the related income tax effect for stock-based compensation, the amortization of intangible assets, and certain acquisition-related charges. In 2012, stock-based compensation expense is expected to be in the range of $0.38 to $0.39 per share net of tax, amortization of intangibles is expected to be in the range of $0.19 to $0.20, and acquisition- and integration-related expenses are expected to be between $0.48 and $0.51. On a GAAP basis, management expects an operating loss of approximately 10% and a per-share loss in the range of $0.90 to $1.00.



Additionally, DTS management expects to resolve certain issues involving the Company's Irish structure with the IRS in the fourth quarter. If the matter is resolved as and when expected, there will be a sizable charge in DTS' 2012 tax provision, not reflected above, followed by meaningful improvements in the Company's effective tax rates beginning in 2013.



For 2013, DTS now expects revenue of $140 to $150 million and operating margins in the low- to mid-20s as a percent of revenue. Management will provide additional background on its outlook during the investor conference call scheduled today, November 8, 2012.



Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information



Included within this press release are non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations prepared under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures adjust the Company's actual results prepared under GAAP to exclude charges and the related income tax effect for stock-based compensation, the amortization of intangible assets, and certain acquisition and integration-related charges. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP amounts for the periods presented herein are provided in schedules accompanying this release and should be considered together with the Consolidated Statements of Operations. These non-GAAP measures are not meant as a substitute for GAAP, but are included solely for informational and comparative purposes. The Company's management believes that this information can assist investors in evaluating the Company's operational trends, financial performance, and cash generating capacity. Management believes these non-GAAP measures allow investors to evaluate DTS' financial performance using some of the same measures as management. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be regarding as a replacement for (or superior to) corresponding, similarly captioned, GAAP measures.
