Sonos Q2 Earnings Fall Y/Y
Sonos reported second-quarter fiscal 2023 non-GAAP earnings of 4 cents per share compared with 26 cents in the prior-year quarter. On a GAAP basis, the company reported a loss of 24 cents against the earnings of 6 cents reported in the year-ago quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate was pegged at a loss of 14 cents.
Quarterly revenues decreased 23.9% (down 22.4% on a constant-currency basis or cc) year over year to $304.2 million due to weak consumer demand. Tougher year-over-year comparison owing to backlog fulfillment and timing of channel fill in the prior-year quarter added to the woes. Unfavorable foreign exchange movements affected sales by $6 million. However, the top line beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 3.5%.
