“We are pleased to announce a strong first quarter where growth continued to be driven by the increasing adoption of Blu-ray and network connected entertainment products, and a solid contribution from the car market,” commented Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc. “During the quarter, we also made good progress expanding relationships with various manufacturers in the TV, mobile and PC space. Lastly, in the broadcast market, we are encouraged by advancements made with IPTV partners who are now beginning to launch products in the marketplace. In summary, the first quarter was a strong start to what we believe will be an important year of growth and strategic progress for DTS. We continue to advance our strategy to penetrate next-generation, network-based content ecosystems, expanding our business meaningfully beyond optical media.
“As we look ahead, we are confident in our business prospects, even while the overall situation in Japan is still in flux. While we are saddened by the tragic events in Japan, thankfully none of our staff or their families were harmed, and our operations suffered no material damage. Based on the data we currently have from our partners and customers, we do not expect any major disruption to our business. As a result, we are reaffirming our expectations for fiscal year 2011 revenue in the range of $100 to 105 million, non-GAAP operating margins in the lower 40’s, and non-GAAP EPS of $1.40 to $1.49 per diluted share, excluding the impact of both stock based compensation and amortization of intangibles, and the estimated tax impact of those items. We expect stock-based compensation expense to be in the range of $0.32 to $0.34 per share net of tax in 2011. On a GAAP basis, we expect operating margins in the low 30s, and EPS in the range of $1.04 to $1.12 cents per diluted share,” concluded Kirchner.
