Swiss-based computer accessory maker Logitech (SWX: LOGN, NASDAQ: LOGI) reported their fiscal Q3 2020 earnings today showing good results compared to expectations.

For the quarter ending December 2019, the company reported revenues of $903 million, a 5% increase over the same quarter last year in constant currency and slightly higher than analyst expectations of $898 million.

Logitech has significant revenue from both e-sports and PC accessories so the increased interest in e-sports as well as the recent surge in PC sales thanks to equipment upgrades caused by Microsoft ending support for Windows 7 should be positive tailwinds for sales.

In particular, Logitech’s Gaming segment performed very well, showing a 15% growth in sales over the same quarter the previous year. That segment represented 27% of the company’s revenues last quarter.


The company’s EPS also beat expectations with a reported $0.84 earnings per share compared to expectations of just under $0.80.

We delivered our biggest quarter in sales and profit in company history, topping $900 million in quarterly sales for the first time ever. Our three largest businesses – Gaming, PC Peripherals and Video Collaboration – all had robust growth, including double-digit growth in Gaming and Video Collaboration. And despite the impact of tariffs, we delivered strong gross margins of 37.6%. On the back of this strong performance, we are confirming our annual guidance.Logitech International President and CEO Bracken Darrell
