Company Well Positioned to Benefit from Ongoing Secular Growth Trends

SIX Swiss Exchange Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR — Logitech International (SIX:LOGN) (Nasdaq:LOGI), in advance of a meeting to be held with financial analysts and investors, today provided an update on its financial outlook and long-term business model.

  • Current Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook: Logitech confirmed its recently increased current Fiscal Year 2022 outlook of between 2 and 5 percent sales growth in constant currency, and between $850 million and $900 million in non-GAAP operating income.
  • Fiscal Year 2023 Outlook: Logitech announced its Fiscal Year 2023 outlook. Sales growth in constant currency is expected to be in the mid single digits, and non-GAAP operating income is expected to be between $900 million and $950 million.
  • Long-Term Business Model: Logitech reaffirmed its long-term business model. Long-term, the expectation for sales growth in constant currency continues to be from 8 to 10 percent. The expected long-term non-GAAP gross margin target is maintained at between 39 and 44 percent. The expected long-term non-GAAP operating margin target is maintained at between 14 and 17 percent.

“As a leader in large and growing markets, with world-class design and innovation capabilities, Logitech is well positioned for long-term growth,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “For many years, Logitech’s growth has been fueled by market trends in remote work, video collaboration, esports, and digital content creation. Those trends are poised to continue to grow strongly into the future, and Logitech is poised to grow strongly along with them.”

Analyst and Investor Day Videoconference and Livestream

At Logitech's Analyst and Investor Day, Company executives will present how capabilities such as design, innovation, operations, sustainability, go-to-market, marketing, and more are contributing to current and future growth. The event will be held on March 3 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and 3:00 p.m. Central European Time through videoconference. A livestream, replay of the event, and slide presentation will be available on the Logitech corporate website at http://ir.logitech.com.

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, impairment of intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration for business acquisition, restructuring charges (credits), loss (gain) on investments, non-GAAP income tax adjustment, and other items detailed in our “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” under “Supplemental Financial Information” in our quarterly earnings press release and posted to our website at http://ir.logitech.com. 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, 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 Years 2022 or 2023.
