Logitech Announces Third Quarter Results For FY 2013

Mr. Darrell concluded, “As we execute our plans over the coming quarters, we will reduce costs significantly across the company beyond the $80M annual cost savings (FY 2014 over FY 2012) resulting from the restructuring we announced last April. My goal is to get Logitech back to sustained profitability as quickly as possible. This requires unwavering focus on developing great products both for large and for fast-growing markets, removing unnecessary costs and a commitment to move at least as fast as the markets in which we participate.”

Prepared Remarks Available Online

Logitech has made its prepared written remarks for the financial results teleconference available online on the Logitech corporate Web site at http://ir.logitech.com. The remarks are posted in the Calendar section on the Investor home page.

Financial Results Teleconference and Webcast

Logitech will hold a financial results teleconference to discuss the results for Q3 FY 2013 on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and 14:30 Central European Time. A live webcast of the call will be available on the Logitech corporate website at http://ir.logitech.com.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including, without limitation, statements regarding: demand for our products, expansion of our presence and growth in the tablet and smartphones accessories category, new product launches, our plans to divest or discontinue non-strategic products, our focus, and our ability to be faster and more profitable, to achieve sustained profitability, to sustain our leadership and advantages in PC platform-related products, and to reduce costs. The forward-looking statements in this release involve risks and uncertainties that could cause Logitech’s actual results and events to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: if our product offerings, marketing activities and investment prioritization decisions do not result in the sales, profitability or profitability growth we expect, or when we expect it; the demand of our customers and our consumers for our products and our ability to accurately forecast it; if we fail to innovate and develop new products in a timely and cost-effective manner for our new and existing product categories; if we do not successfully execute on our growth opportunities in our new product categories and sales in emerging market geographies; if sales of PC peripherals in mature markets are less than we expect; the effect of pricing, product, marketing and other initiatives by our competitors; if our products and marketing strategies fail to separate our products from competitors’ products; if the restructuring fails to produce the intended performance and cost savings results or is not implemented in the contemplated timeframe.

Constant dollar sales (sales excluding impact of exchange rate changes) and Non-GAAP operating and net income (excluding the Q3 FY 2013 impairment charge)

 

We refer to our net sales excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rates as constant dollar sales. We also report non-GAAP operating and net income (loss) in this press release, excluding the Q3 FY 2013 non-cash impairment charge, and non-GAAP operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization. Constant dollar sales and non-GAAP operating and net income (loss) are non-GAAP financial measures, which are information derived from consolidated financial information but not presented in our financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures in its financial and operational decision-making, and believes these non-GAAP measures, when considered in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, facilitate a better understanding of changes in net sales, operating income (loss) and net income(loss). Constant dollar sales are calculated by translating prior period sales in each local currency at the current period's average exchange rate for that currency. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) before goodwill impairment can be reconciled to GAAP operating income (loss) and GAAP net income (loss), respectively, by adding the amount of the impairment charge.  Non-GAAP operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization can be reconciled to GAAP operating income (loss) by adding the amounts of depreciation and amortization of other intangible assets.
