GAAP attributable net profit also dropped, to $62 million ($0.60 per diluted share) from Q2 2012's figure of $88 million ($0.81).

Analysts had been expecting revenue of $246 million and EPS of $0.68.

    Eric, where did you see analyst estimates of $0.68? Could this possibly be non-GAAP estimate? CAPS is showing $0.54 - $0.59 with an average of $0.56. Others sources show an avg of $0.57. Not that it makes a difference in the long run, but $.03 beat sounds a lot better than $.08 short. Incidentally, DLB non-GAAP EPS was $0.74

    Hmmm... It's the GAAP / non-GAAP confusion again. Seth's article published today used actual EPS of $0.74 in comparison to the $0.68 estimate.

    Which is correct?

    Eric, I re-read both articles and I think I see the problem.

    non-GAAP EPS is $0.74 vs. $0.68 avg analyst estimates (based on Seth's latest article)

    GAAP EPS is $0.60 vs $0.57 avg analyst estimates. (My source for the estimate was Yahoo. CAPS used $0.56 for the avg.)

    On both counts they beat estimates - for what it's worth.
