GAAP operating income was $141 million, with GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $0.81, compared to $0.46 a year ago. This was the Company’s best EPS since FY 2008.

“We closed Fiscal Year 2015 with a better-than-expected performance and good momentum in spite of currency headwinds,” said Bracken Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “Our Growth category – Gaming, Tablet and Other Accessories, Mobile Speakers and Video Collaboration – sales grew by 28 percent in constant currency over the full year, accelerating in the fourth quarter to 45 percent growth, the best performance of the fiscal year.

“Looking at Fiscal Year 2016, we’re playing offense. We will accelerate our transformation of Logitech into a simpler, faster, growing company. We will focus on our growing Retail Strategic business. Consequently, we plan to exit our OEM business and reorganize Lifesize to sharpen its focus on its cloud-based offering. We will also streamline our overall cost structure through product, overhead and infrastructure cost reductions, including a targeted resource realignment. As a result, over the coming year we expect restructuring charges of approximately $15 million to $20 million. The savings from all these actions will be used to offset currency headwinds and invest in future growth.”
