Netgear Q1 2023: Inventory Correction Set to Spill Into Q2

Nov 29, 2023Nov 29, 2023

Netgear's revenue declined 27.4% YoY in Q1 2023 to $180.9 million, which was below the guided level mainly due to inventory corrections in the consumer and SMB segments. These corrections are expected to continue in Q2 2023, thus requiring lower production for Netgear. However, gross margins improved in Q1 on the good performance of premium products such as Orbi mesh gateways, 5G mobile hotspots, and Pro AV switches. Supply chain issues have improved for most of the product lines which helped reduce the use of air freight, thereby helping gross margins.
