Logitech Shares Slide On Disappointing Preliminary Q3 Results Reflecting Macro Headwinds

  • Logitech International S.A. (NASDAQ: LOGI) shared preliminary results ranges for the third quarter of FY23 ended on December 31, 2022.

  • Preliminary Q3 net sales ranges $1.26 billion – $1.27 billion, down 22% – 23% year-on-year in U.S. dollars, below the consensus of $1.39 billion.

  • The company expects non-GAAP gross margin of 37.8% – 37.9%.

  • Preliminary Q3 non-GAAP operating income is $198 million – $203 million, down 33% – 34% Y/Y, and non-GAAP operating margin is 15.7% – 16.0%.

  • “We are disappointed in these preliminary third-quarter results. They reflect challenging macroeconomic conditions, including a slowdown in sales to enterprise customers in the quarter. Based on the softer than expected third-quarter results and uncertainty in supply availability related to the current Covid outbreak in China, we are reducing our full-year outlook,” CEO Bracken Darrell said.

  • FY23 Outlook: Logitech reduced its constant currency sales growth outlook to (15)% – (13)%, down from the prior (8)% – (4)%, versus the consensus of $4.84 billion.
