For the fourth quarter of 2016, which is actually the company's Q3 for its fiscal 2017, Logitech reported revenues of $667M, up 13% year over year, generating operating income of $99M, up 34% year over year.   Logitech reports numbers in terms of net sales, net sales in constant currency (eliminating the effects of exchange rate changes, and sell through - we've focused on the constant currency numbers here).  Strong growth was very evident in the video collaboration and gaming parts of the company as well as mobile speakers.  Geographically speaking, EMEA was the star, and Americas the lag
