Logitech said operating income declined 33 percent to $177 million, compared to $263 million in the same quarter a year ago.

“We continued to manage our costs in the quarter, while at the same time growing market share in key categories. Our long-term strategies remain unchanged and we remain committed to the growth trends that fuel our business,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer.

Logitech is expecting 13-15 percent drop in sales, and between $550 million and $600 million in non-GAAP operating income for Fiscal Year 2023.
