Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Total Net Revenues for Fiscal Year 2021 were $1.7 billion, an increase of $30.6 million or 1.8%, compared to Fiscal Year 2020, primarily driven by increased sales in our Video and enterprise Headset product categories, partially offset by decreases in Voice and consumer Headset sales.
  • Product Gross Margin for Fiscal Year 2021 increased from 26.7% in the prior year to 41.3%, primarily due to the one-time long-lived asset impairment of existing technology related to our Voice products taken in the fourth quarter of Fiscal Year 2020 and the associated reduction in intangible asset amortization expense, partially offset by COVID-19 related incremental manufacturing and logistics costs and Video product transitions.
  • Cash Provided by Operating Activities for Fiscal Year 2021 was $145.2 million, an increase of $67.5 million, or 86.1% compared to Fiscal Year 2020. The increase was primarily driven by lower net loss, partially offset by increased cash used to fund working capital.
