“Seagate just delivered the industry’s first $3 billion quarter, and 30% growth over our year-ago
quarter,” said Bill Watkins, Seagate’s chief executive officer. “These results are driven by the
explosive growth in digital content and the resulting growth in demand for storage, as well as by our
ability to deliver a broadening suite of products to a growing set of customers. This solid quarter
reflects better than expected desktop pricing during the quarter, the successful transition of Maxtor
customers to more cost-effective, higher margin Seagate products, and continued operational
excellence. With the Maxtor integration substantially complete and exciting new products hitting the
market in the current quarter, Seagate is on a path to further increase profitability in the traditionally
slower back half of the fiscal year.
“During the December quarter, we shipped a record 7 million disc drives for consumer electronics
applications, increased our shipments into the mobile compute market by 52% year-over-year, and
continued to solidify our substantial lead in the enterprise and desktop markets. Additional highlights of
the quarter include the start of OEM qualification of Seagate’s 1.8-inch products; the successful launch
of the re-branded Seagate and Maxtor external storage products which included four new Seagate
external storage solutions; and the expansion of Seagate’s services business with the announced
acquisition of EVault, Inc. Our employees have much to be proud of as I believe Seagate’s product and
operational execution, as well as the company’s market presence and visibility, have never been
stronger. We have laid the foundation for continued success and growing profitability in 2007.”
