Sales for Q3 were $627 million, a decrease of 16 percent compared to $744 million in the same quarter last year. Operating income was $43 million, a decrease of 63 percent compared to $116 million in the same quarter a year ago. Net income was $40 million ($0.22 per share) compared to Q3 FY 2008 net income of $134 million ($0.71 per share), which included a net realized gain on sales of short-term investments of $27.8 million and an impairment loss of $5.5 million on the value of short-term investments.

In addition to ongoing actions to reduce operating expenses, Logitech has initiated a restructuring that is expected to reduce the Company’s global salaried workforce by between 550 and 600 employees. This plan is expected to generate annual cost savings beginning in Fiscal Year 2010 of approximately $50 million. As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to incur a total charge of approximately $20-24 million over the next twelve months, of which approximately $16-18 million is expected to be incurred during the fourth quarter of FY 2009.
