Rovi (ROVI) -27.5% AH after warning it expects Q2 revenue of $158M and EPS of $0.35-$0.38, well below a consensus of $182.6M and $0.57. The company also now expects 2012 revenue and EPS guidance to $650M-$680M and $1.60-$1.90, below a consensus of $765.2M and $2.51. Rovi blames delays in securing patent licenses and launching new products, as well as weakness in electronics and ad spending.
