In addition, GoPro is projecting revenue of $1.35 billion to $1.5 billion for this year, a drop from $1.6 billion in 2015. GoPro’s stock dropped as much as 15 percent in after-hours trading.

The numbers aren’t much of a surprise, because at the same time that GoPro announced the workforce cut, it downgraded its guidance for the fourth quarter of 2015 from about $500 million to $550 million in revenue to $435 million, citing “lower than anticipated sales of its capture devices.”.
