For the fiscal second quarter, net revenue is expected to range from $750 million to $800 million, with net income per share between 85 cents and 96 cents. For the fiscal year, which ends March 31, 2021, net revenue is estimated between $2.8 billion and $2.9 billion with net income per share of between $3.04 and $3.30.
