Description of Business
We are an industry-leading developer and manufacturer of storage solutions that enable people to create, manage, experience and preserve digital content. We design and make storage devices and home entertainment products under the HGST, WD and G-Technology brands. Our principal products today are hard drives that use one or more rotating magnetic disks (�magnetic media�) to store and allow fast access to data. Hard drives are today�s primary storage medium for digital content. Over the last 10 years, we have achieved consistent profitable growth, with revenues up 19% and earnings per share up 16% on a compounded annual growth rate basis. We believe we are well positioned to capitalize on an important long-term secular growth trend � the ongoing expansion in digital data � which is linked directly to consumers� and commercial enterprises� increasingly ubiquitous experience with digital data.
