Dolby Laboratories Announces an Additional $300 Million for Stock Repurchase Program

SAN FRANCISCO, Jul 29, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved an additional $300 million for its stock repurchase program bringing the approximate amount available for future repurchases of Dolby's Class A Common Stock to $347 million. The objective of the ongoing program is to offset dilution from the Company's equity compensation programs.

Stock repurchases under this program may be made through open market transactions, negotiated purchases, or otherwise, at times and in such amounts as Dolby considers appropriate. The timing of repurchases and the number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, regulatory requirements and other market conditions. Dolby may limit, suspend or terminate the stock repurchase program at any time without prior notice. Any shares repurchased under the program will be returned to the status of authorized but unissued shares of Class A Common Stock.
