Sonos (SONO) Hits the Beat on Q2 Earnings but Faces Static On Y/Y Revenues, Shares Fall

For investors reading today’s Sonos, Inc. (SONO) Q2 financial release headline, earnings metrics beat Street estimates on EPS ($0.34) vs FactSet ($0.46), revenue $252.7M vs FactSet $249.7M and adjusted EBITDA ($33.6M) vs FactSet ($37.1M). However, the stock has sold off and traded down ~4% on the day.

This initial reaction may be related to the company’s 16.9% decrease in quarterly revenues year-over-year that was cited due to the challenging macroeconomic environment. All three of Sonos’ segments contributing to its revenue fell on a year-over-year basis.

However, in the report, management stated, “Today marks the launch of our completely reimagined Sonos app, which is our most extensive app redesign ever. This is a major step in enabling our multi-year product cycle and sets us up well for the launch of our highly anticipated new product later this quarter.”

Despite its challenging conditions the company remains positive regarding its upcoming launch and growth potential. We will see if investors turn up the volume on this stock if the company can successfully execute its new app design and future product release.
