Impact of Recent Events
Dolby’s financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 rely on estimates of royalty-based revenue that take into consideration the macroeconomic effect of certain events, including COVID-19, supply chain constraints, and consumer demand for electronic products. In addition, our actual results could differ materially from the estimates we are providing below due in part to the increased uncertainty resulting from these items as well as the geopolitical instability in Europe and continuing concerns around inflation. The uncertainty resulting from these factors has greatly reduced our visibility into our future outlook. To the extent possible, the estimates we are providing for future periods reflect certain assumptions about the potential impact of certain of these items, based upon a consideration of currently available external and internal data and information. These assumptions are subject to risks and uncertainties. For more information, see “Forward-Looking Statements” in this press release for a description of certain risks that we face, and the section captioned “Risk Factors” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, filed on or around the date hereof.
