Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement Dolby's financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Dolby
provides non-GAAP financial measures of operating expense, net income, and
diluted earnings per share. These measures are adjusted to exclude amounts
related to stock-based compensation, the amortization of intangibles from
business combinations, restructuring charges, and the related tax impact of
these items. Dolby presents such 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, as applicable, both GAAP
information that includes the impact of stock-based compensation expense,
expense associated with dividend equivalents paid on restricted stock units,
amortization of intangible assets acquired through business combinations,
restructuring charges, the related tax impact of all of these items on the
provision for income taxes, and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such
information 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 such non-GAAP
financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial
information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Whenever Dolby uses such
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 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
