Logitech Delivers Better-Than-Expected Q3 Results and Raises FY 2016 Outlook

Del

Logitech International (SIX:LOGN) (Nasdaq:LOGI) today announced financial results from continuing operations for the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2016.

  • Q3 sales were $621 million, up 3 percent compared to Q3 of the prior year. Q3 retail sales (total sales excluding OEM) were $595 million and grew 9 percent in constant currency.
  • Q3 GAAP operating income was $69 million. Q3 GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were $0.41, compared to $0.40 in the same quarter a year ago.
  • Q3 non-GAAP operating income was $74 million, with non-GAAP EPS of $0.41, compared to $0.43 in the same quarter a year ago.
  • Cash flow from operations in the quarter, including Lifesize, was $166 million.

“We delivered a strong performance in Q3, evident across the business,” said Bracken P. Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “In this milestone quarter for the company, a new Logitech emerged as we completed the exit of our OEM business and separated Lifesize. Logitech’s future business remains – and the future looks bright. We grew 9 percent in constant currency and our operating income and operating cash flow were strong. Combined, the Gaming, Mobile Speakers and Video Collaboration categories grew 34 percent in constant currency and each of them reached record high sales for a quarter. I’m delighted to raise our outlook as we enter the last quarter of the year.”

Outlook

Logitech increased its profitability outlook for Fiscal Year 2016 to approximately $170 million in non-GAAP operating income from $150 million, which included Lifesize. The Company also increased its outlook for retail sales to 7 to 9 percent growth in constant currency, up from 7 percent.

Prepared Remarks Available Online

Logitech has made its prepared written remarks for the financial results teleconference available online on the Logitech corporate website at http://ir.logitech.com.

Financial Results Teleconference and Webcast

Logitech will hold a financial results teleconference to discuss the results for Q3 FY 2016 on Jan. 21, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and 2:30 p.m. Central European Time. A live webcast of the call will be available on the Logitech corporate website at http://ir.logitech.com.

Continuing Operations

Logitech separated its Lifesize division from the Company on Dec. 28, 2015. The Company’s third quarter of Fiscal Year 2016 ended on Dec. 25, 2015, even though, for purposes of presentation, the Company has indicated its third quarter periods as ending on Dec. 31. Except as otherwise noted, all of the results reported in this press release for both the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2016 and the third quarter of Fiscal Year 2015, as well as comparisons between periods, are focused on results from continuing operations and do not address the performance of Lifesize, which is now reported in the Company’s financial statements under discontinued operations or total Logitech including discontinued operations. Logitech’s previous outlook of $150 million in non-GAAP operating income included outlook for Lifesize results. Logitech’s new outlook does not include outlook for Lifesize results. For more information on the impact of the Lifesize separation on Logitech’s historical results, please refer to the Financial Reporting section of Logitech’s Financial History, available on the Logitech corporate website at http://ir.logitech.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To facilitate comparisons to Logitech’s historical results, Logitech has included non-GAAP adjusted measures, which exclude share-based compensation expense, amortization of other intangible assets, restructuring charges (credits), investment impairment (recovery), benefit from (provision for) income taxes, one-time special charges and other items detailed under “Supplemental Financial Information” after the tables below. Logitech also presents percentage sales growth in constant currency, a non-GAAP measure, 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 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 2016.

(A) Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, we use a number of financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing our overall business performance, for making operating decisions and for forecasting and planning future periods. We consider the use of non-GAAP financial measures helpful in assessing our current financial performance, ongoing operations and prospects for the future as well as understanding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.

While we use non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance our understanding of certain aspects of our financial performance and to provide incremental insight into the underlying factors and trends affecting both our performance and our cash-generating potential, we do not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial measures. Consistent with this approach, we believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of our financial statements provides useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, can offer insight in the review of our financial and operational performance and enables investors to more fully understand trends in our current and future performance. In assessing our business during the quarter ended December 31, 2015, we excluded items in the following general categories, each of which are described below:

Share-based compensation expenses. We believe that providing non-GAAP measures excluding share-based compensation expense, in addition to the GAAP measures, allows for a more transparent comparison of our financial results from period to period. We prepare and maintain our budgets and forecasts for future periods on a basis consistent with this non-GAAP financial measure. Further, companies use a variety of types of equity awards as well as a variety of methodologies, assumptions and estimates to determine share-based compensation expense. We believe that excluding share-based compensation expense enhances our ability and the ability of investors to understand the impact of non-cash share-based compensation on our operating results and to compare our results against the results of other companies.

Amortization of other intangible assets. We incur intangible asset amortization expense, primarily in connection with our acquisitions of various businesses and technologies. The amortization of purchased intangibles varies depending on the level of acquisition activity. We exclude these various charges in budgeting, planning and forecasting future periods and we believe that providing the non-GAAP measures excluding these various non-cash charges, as well as the GAAP measures, provides additional insight when comparing our operating expenses and financial results from period to period.

Restructuring charges (credits). These expenses are associated with re-aligning our business strategies based on current economic conditions. We have undertaken several restructurings in recent years. In connection with our restructuring initiatives, we incurred restructuring charges related to employee terminations, facility closures and early cancellation of certain contracts. We believe that providing the non-GAAP measures excluding these charges, as well as the GAAP measures, assists our investors because such charges are not reflective of our ongoing operating results in the current period.

Investment impairment (recovery). We incur investment impairment and recovery, primarily related to our investments in various privately-held companies. The investment impairment or recovery varies depending on the operational and financial performance of the privately-held companies we invested in. We believe that providing the non-GAAP measures excluding these charges, as well as the GAAP measures, assists our investors because such charges are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

One-time special charges: costs related to investigations and related expenses. These expenses are forensic accounting, audit, consulting and legal fees related to the Audit Committee’s investigation and the ongoing formal investigation by and settlement discussion with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), together with accruals based on settlement discussion with the SEC. We believe that providing the non-GAAP measures excluding these charges, as well as the GAAP measures, assists our investors because such charges are one-time in nature and not reflective of our ongoing operations.

Other charges. We provided non-GAAP measures excluding the effect of certain charges and income that are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

In addition, Logitech presents percentage sales growth in constant currency, a non-GAAP measure, 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. Sales for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to sales for the three months ended December 31, 2014 grew 8 percent in constant currency and grew 3 percent in U.S. Dollars. Retail sales for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to retail sales for the three months ended December 31, 2014 grew 9 percent in constant currency and grew 4 percent in U.S. Dollars. Sales for the combined Gaming, Mobile Speakers and Video Collaboration categories for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to sales for those combined categories for the three months ended December 31, 2014 grew 34 percent in constant currency and grew 27 percent in U.S. Dollars.

Each of the non-GAAP financial measures described above, and used in this press release, should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, a measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, investors are cautioned that there are inherent limitations associated with the use of each of these non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and many of the adjustments to the GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and may be reflected in the Company’s financial results for the foreseeable future. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information in the reconciliation included in this press release regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, as noted above, we evaluate the non-GAAP financial measures together with the most directly comparable GAAP financial information.
