Technically it doesn't decrypt to anything, it decodes. :)
According to the Federal Standard 1037C, the National Information
Systems Security Glossary, and the Department of Defense Dictionary of
Military and Associated Terms:
"In telecommunications, the term decrypt has the following meanings:
1. [A] generic term encompassing decode and decipher.
2. To convert encrypted text into its equivalent plaintext by means of
a cryptosystem. "
So no, I mean decrypt.
