WD's Revenue Decreased Amid Weak Hard Drives Sales


Western Digital Corp. reported lower revenue significantly as a result of drop in hard disk drive shipments and flat average selling price.

The company reported revenue of $3.8 billion, hard-drive shipments of 59.2 million and net income of $335 million, or $1.36 per share for its second fiscal quarter ended Dec. 28, 2012.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $513 million or $2.09 per share.1 In the year-ago quarter, the company reported revenue of $2.0 billion, net income of $145 million, or $0.61 per share, and shipped 28.5 million hard drives. Non-GAAP net income in the year-ago quarter was $358 million, or $1.51 per share.2

The company generated $772 million in cash from operations during the December quarter, ending with total cash and cash equivalents of $3.8 billion. During the quarter, the company utilized $146 million to buy back 4.2 million shares of common stock. On Dec. 3, the company declared a $0.25 per common share dividend, which was paid on Dec. 26.

"We are pleased with our December quarter results, reflecting outstanding execution and value creation by our HGST and WD teams," said Steve Milligan, president and chief executive officer. "In an environment marked by continued macro economic uncertainty, soft PC demand and inventory rebalancing by our customers, we continue to manage our business by focusing on those variables that we control, allowing us to generate better than expected revenue and profitability and strong cash generation."

WD also announced its solid-state hybrid drives, storage devices that combine NAND flash memory and high-capacity rotating media, will become available in new notebook PCs in 2014.
