Logitech Delivers Double-Digit Growth and Raises Outlook

Gaming, Video Collaboration, Smart Home Up Over 40%


NEWARK, Calif. July 24, 2017 and LAUSANNE, Switzerland, July 25, 2017 — Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI) today announced financial results for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2018.

  • Q1 sales were $530 million, up 13 percent in constant currency compared to Q1 of the prior year. Q1 sales grew 10 percent in USD.
  • Q1 GAAP operating income grew 22 percent to $31 million, compared to $26 million a year ago. Q1 GAAP earnings per share (EPS) grew 69 percent to $0.22, compared to $0.13 a year ago.
  • Q1 non-GAAP operating income grew 14 percent to $43 million, compared to $38 million a year ago. Q1 non-GAAP EPS grew 20 percent to $0.24, compared to $0.20 a year ago.

“We’re off to a strong start,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “Our innovative and diverse portfolio is delivering, with growth and profitability exceeding expectations this quarter. Our growth was broad-based — we grew double-digits in constant currency across all three regions. Looking out to the rest of the year, the strength of our innovation program combined with the expected closing of the ASTRO Gaming acquisition, give us the confidence to raise our FY 2018 outlook.” 

Vincent Pilette, Logitech chief financial officer, said, “We delivered a strong financial performance during this first quarter of the fiscal year, with sales up 13% and profitability up 14%. Q1’s healthy gross margin — up 140 basis points compared to last year — allows us to continue our investment in numerous growth opportunities to build an exciting future.”


Logitech raised its Fiscal Year 2018 outlook to 10 to 12 percent sales growth in constant currency and $260 to $270 million in non-GAAP operating income. This includes the anticipated impact of the ASTRO Gaming acquisition, expected to close in August 2017.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information and Constant Currency

To facilitate comparisons to Logitech’s historical results, Logitech has included non-GAAP adjusted measures, which exclude share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, purchase accounting effect on inventory, acquisition-related costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration for business acquisition, restructuring charges (credits), gain (loss) on investments in privately held companies, investigation and related expenses, non-GAAP income tax adjustment, and other items detailed under “Supplemental Financial Information” after the tables below. Logitech also presents percentage sales growth in constant currency to show performance unaffected by fluctuations in currency exchange rates. Percentage sales growth in constant currency is calculated by translating prior period sales in each local currency at the current period’s average exchange rate for that currency and comparing that to current period sales. Logitech believes this information, used together with the GAAP financial information, will help investors to evaluate its current period performance and trends in its business. With respect to the Company’s outlook for non-GAAP operating income, most of these excluded amounts pertain to events that have not yet occurred and are not currently possible to estimate with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Therefore, no reconciliation to the GAAP amounts has been provided for Fiscal Year 2018.
