(NASDAQ: GPRO) today announced that over the four-day Memorial Day weekend, camera unit sales on GoPro.com were the highest ever for a four-day period outside of a fourth quarter or a new camera-launch period.

(Bloomberg) -- GoPro Inc.’s chief hardware designer Danny Coster left the camera maker earlier this year after joining from Apple Inc.’s design team four years ago.“After nearly four years at GoPro where Danny was instrumental in transforming our design function, Danny decided to take his career expertise and family back to his native New Zealand to begin a new chapter of his life,” a spokesman for San Mateo, California-based GoPro told Bloomberg News. Coster’s last day at the company was in February, the spokesman added.In April, GoPro cut more than 20% of its workforce, shifted its sales strategy away from physical retail to direct-to-consumer, and cut its 2020 financial guidance due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Still, action camera hardware is key to GoPro’s future, and the departure of Coster means the loss of an influential product and design leader.Read more: GoPro Cuts More Than 20% of Workforce, Changes Sales StrategyCoster joined GoPro in 2016 as vice president of design, and his departure from Apple’s famed industrial design team was one of the first for the Cupertino, California-based technology giant.

GoPro Inc. announced Wednesday plans to lay off more than 20% of its remaining staff and cut out retailers from its sales as revenue reels from the spread of COVID-19.
San Mateo-based action camera maker GoPro Inc. said Thursday morning that it was laying off more than 20 percent of its workforce, or about 200 employees, as it revealed that first-quarter sales had tanked.
Action camera manufacturer GoPro has announced some massive organizational changes at the company. In particular, the company is laying off more than 200 employees — which represents a 20% staff reduction.

However with direct to consumer up significantly in the quarter, the average selling price (ASP) increased 23% sequentially to $350.“For a consumer electronic company with a non-essential product levered towards tourism and getting outside … the numbers were ugly” stated Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz.But he is encouraged by the fact that GoPro management is doing something many others aren’t doing: accelerating its business plan.For GoPro that involves accelerating its strategy towards a direct-to-consumer model, which ‘makes sense’ given that Core GoPro users are already mostly digital.This will enable the company to restructure its sales and marketing team, including a workforce reduction of over 20%. Specifically, GPRO announced plans to reduce Non-GAAP OpEx by $100 million in 2020 (from $377M in 2019) and further in 2021 to $250 million.“With a leaner model, GoPro is better positioned to remain cash flow–positive despite vastly lower revenue (updated model down 52%). And beyond COVID-19, a lean GoPro, a profitable GoPro, a strong brand in GoPro … is an Outperform stock” cheers Uerkwitz.As a result the analyst reiterated his GPRO buy rating with a price target of $7- indicating upside potential of over 150%. However, Uerkwitz is the only bull in the picture right now- with the stock displaying a Hold analyst consensus.

Producer Alex Malburg and I had spent the previous few days traveling to Queenstown, New Zealand, to drive and film the not-yet-released-in-the-U.S. Ford Ranger. As we drove along on the left side of a gorgeous cliffside road overlooking a lake, little did we know our GoPro, which had been attached to the driver’s side of the car, had fallen off and tumbled down the road. Thankfully GoPro has realized that getting the best looking shots also means a high risk of losing or breaking a camera, so they’re currently offering a GoPro Plus subscription for $5 a month, or $50 a year if you buy it all up front.
