Investing.com – Sonos stock (NASDAQ:SONO) climbed 9% in Monday’s premarket after a U.S. trade judge ruled that that some of Google’s Pixel smartphones and Nest audio speakers infringe on the company’s technology and could be barred from import.

Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has denied Sonos’s patent-infringement claims, contending it developed the technologies its products use.

Sonos has been pursuing Google to strike a royalty agreement for a portfolio of patents.

A full commission will review Friday's order by December. The Biden administration can accept the ruling and allow a potential import ban or drop the matter, citing public interest.

Last week, Sonos revised its annual guidance for the second time after work-from-home boosted sales of its speakers and other audio products.

Revenue in the second quarter increased 52% year-over-year to $378.7 million. Net income was $17.8 million compared to a loss of $56.98 million.

The company now sees its revenue in the range of $1.69 billion to $1.71 billion, a growth of 28%-29% year-over-year. It had earlier revised it to $1.62 billion-$1.67 billion.

Adjusted EBITDA is now seen between $270 million and $280 million.
