IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Digital® Corp. (NASDAQ: WDC) today reported revenue of $4.0 billion and net income of $430 million, or $1.77 per share for its second fiscal quarter ended Dec. 27, 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $532 million or $2.19 per share.1 In the year-ago quarter, the company reported revenue of $3.8 billion, net income of $335 million, or $1.36 per share. Non-GAAP net income in the year-ago quarter was $513 million, or $2.09 per share.2

The company generated $727 million in cash from operations during the December quarter, ending with total cash and cash equivalents of $4.7 billion. During the quarter, the company utilized $150 million to buy back 2.0 million shares of common stock. On Nov. 13, the company declared a $0.30 per common-share dividend, which was paid on Jan. 15.

"We executed well in the December quarter as we continue participating in the ongoing growth of data in all of our served markets," said Steve Milligan, president and chief executive officer.

"We serve very large markets underpinned by strong data growth prospects. Strategically, we are well positioned to play a leadership role by innovating and collaborating with our customers to define the future digital data landscape."
