Our growth categories performed well during the first half. Combined, tablet accessories, gaming and wireless speakers grew about 36 percent year over year,” said Bracken P. Darrell, Logitech president and chief executive officer.

For the full fiscal year 2014, Logitech expects revenue of approximately $2 billion and operating income of approximately $50 million, compared to an operating loss in fiscal year 2013.
