Not unexpectedly, the security companies did well during this past quarter. Security is a market that traditionally has fared well during market downturns, and this year with the coronavirus impacting the entire global economy, security once again held true to historical performance data.

Sonos Announces Quarterly Results, 4% Drop

Over on the audio side of the electronics industry, Sonos announced its third quarter 2020 statement to shareholders.

As part of its statement to shareholders, Sonos pointed out that due to quarantining, its sales were affected this past spring (though it previously noted an increase in listening as more people spent time at home).

“Despite the global pandemic and closure of many physical retail stores, we were able to successfully launch three new products that have been received extremely well by customers. Their sales helped support our better than expected third quarter financial results, which we achieved primarily through record direct-to-consumer (DTC) revenue. We see continued strength and momentum as we look forward and are on track to deliver our 15th consecutive year of revenue growth in fiscal 2020,” the company says in its recently issued earnings statement.

“We delivered third quarter revenue of $249.3 million, down only 4% year-over-year despite the ongoing physical retail store closures. One of the key factors in our ability to achieve this was the investments we’ve made in our DTC efforts. We quickly adapted when physical retail stores started to close in the second quarter, and drove a 299% year-over-year increase in our DTC revenue in the third quarter.”

Sonos also points out that it did perform well in the U.S. and the U.K, where its total revenue grew 4% and 13% year-over-year, respectively.

The popular audio company adds that sales grew stronger as the quarter ended. The result of those strong sales strained its stock on seven key products — including several new speakers — with demand exceeding its expectations.

Entering the fourth quarter, Sonos says it expects its supply issues to be resolved to fill those orders from dealers to help drive a strong end of year. Key among recent product introductions is the Arc soundbar, which CE Pro recently reviewed.
