Sonic Solutions Reports Third Quarter Results For Quarter Ending Dec. 31, 1995.

NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 1, 1996--Sonic Solutions (NASDAQ: SNIC) today announced that net revenue was $3,445,000 for the third quarter ended December 31, 1995, compared to $5,317,000 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. Net loss for the quarter totaled $540,000 down from the net income of $775,000 earned in the third quarter of last year.

Net revenue was $11,443,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 1995, compared to $15,385,000 for the same period in the prior fiscal year. Net loss for the nine month period totaled $1,213,000, compared to net income of $2,257,000, earned in the same nine month period of last year.

Commenting on the results, Robert J. Doris, President, said, "During the December quarter we made considerable progress in retrofitting and restaging Sonic Systems based on our new Ultra-Sonic Processor. This activity continued to divert our field organization, depressing revenue levels for the quarter. However, we believe that the effort we expended has substantially solidified our position, permitting us to focus in future quarters on delivering new capabilities and products to our customers."
