…Revenue in Best Buy’s fourth quarter, which ended Feb. 26, fell 2 percent to $16.26 billion from $16.55 billion. Revenue in the United States fell 4 percent to $12.1 billion. International revenue rose 4 percent to $4.1 billion.

“Overall demand for key consumer electronics products was a challenge for the industry last year,” the chief executive, Brian J. Dunn, said in a statement.
