Let’s see how things are shaping up before our next announcement.
Factors to consider
Logitech’s fiscal third quarter earnings may be adversely affected by lower demand for personal computers (PCs), a key driver of PC peripheral products. According to the latest Gartner report, his worldwide PC shipments in Q4 2022 fell 28.5% year-on-year to 65.3 million units.
In 2020 and 2021, Logitech has benefited from increased demand for video collaboration, keyboard and combo, and pointing device tools, primarily due to the growing trend of working from home and learning from home. In addition, the popularity of online games and e-sports has increased amid the refraining from going out, and the demand for game products has surged. However, demand softened as economic and business activities resumed.
The company witnessed a significant drop in sales for some of its products in its last reported quarter. Last quarter, revenue from the PC webcams, tablets & other accessories, audio & wearables, keyboards & combos, and games product categories plunged 36%, 33%, 25%, 15%, and 10% respectively. .
Additionally, businesses are postponing large IT spending plans as the global economy weakens amid ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges. This may have hurt his Logitech’s overall financial performance in the third quarter.
However, lower operating expenses may partially offset the negative impact of the aforementioned factors on profitability.
