Logitech declares 75% jump in sales in Q2 results

Logitech announced better than expected Q2 results riding on increased sales of peripherals due to people refitting for work from home in the new Pandemic driven reality.

This was the first time ever that Logitech’s quarterly sales exceeded the billion-dollar mark.

The Swiss-US firm raised its full-year forecast, based on expectations of annual sales increasing between 35% and 40% and non-GAAP operating income of between $700 million and $725 million and a range of $700 million to $725 million in non-GAAP operating income. The Company’s previous outlook was between 10 and 13 percent sales growth in constant currency, and a range of $410 million to $425 million in non-GAAP operating income.

Q2 non-GAAP operating income grew 295 percent to $354 million, compared to $89 million in the same quarter a year ago.

Cash flow from operations was $280 million, compared to $107 million in the same period a year ago.

The company has been profiting from people working from home, and rising sales for the accompanying paraphilia, to comply with social distancing restrictions.

“The growth trends that drive our business have accelerated as society adjusts to its new reality,” said Chief Executive Officer Bracken Darrell in a statement.

“The organization leaders I speak to envision people increasingly working from multiple locations, a hybrid work culture that is emerging as the norm.”

Logitech said sales rose 75% in the three months to the end of September. Net income rose to $266.9 million from $73 million a year earlier.
