Here’s what else investors in Sonos stock need to know about the earnings report.

  • Adjusted per-share earnings are a positive switch from adjusted losses per share of 15 cents in the fourth quarter of 2019.
  • Revenue for the quarter comes in 16% higher than the $294.16 million reported during the same time last year.
  • Operating income of $15.43 million is much better year-over-year than an operating loss of $24.83 million last year.
  • The Sonos earnings report also has net income coming in at $18.41 million. That’s a major improvement over its net loss of $29.6 million from the same period of the year prior.

Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos, said this about the news boosting the stock:

“Fiscal 2020 was the 15th year in a row we grew total households by at least 20%, while our existing customers once again showed strong repurchase habits, accounting for a record 41% of total product registrations.”

Sonos also includes guidance in its current earnings report. It’s expecting revenue for fiscal 2021 to range from $1.44 billion to $1.5 billion. That’s looking good for SONO stock next to Wall Street’s revenue estimate of $1.38 billion.

SONO stock was up 25.4% as of Thursday morning.
