Western Digital Corp.today reported revenue of $5.0 billion for its first fiscal quarter ended Sept. 28, 2018. Operating income was $686 million with net income of $511 million, or $1.71 per share. Excluding certain non-GAAP adjustments, the company achieved non-GAAP operating income of $1.1 billion and non-GAAP net income of $906 million, or $3.04 per share.

In the year-ago quarter, the company reported revenue of $5.2 billion, operating income of $905 million and net income of $681 million, or $2.23 per share. Non-GAAP operating income in the year-ago quarter was $1.4 billion and non-GAAP net income was $1.1 billion, or $3.56 per share.

The company generated $705 million in cash from operations during the first fiscal quarter of 2019, ending with $4.8 billion of total cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities. The company returned $711 million to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends. On Aug. 1, 2018, the company declared a cash dividend of $0.50 per share of its common stock, which was paid to shareholders on Oct. 15, 2018.

"Our fiscal first quarter results reflected strength in capacity enterprise, surveillance hard drives and embedded flash solutions, with each growing revenue over 30% from the year-ago quarter," said Steve Milligan, chief executive officer of Western Digital. "However, strength in these end markets was offset by ongoing declines in flash pricing. A more challenging global business environment and the corresponding economic impacts are contributing to a more conservative demand outlook for our products. In response to these conditions, we are taking immediate actions to align our flash output with projected demand. We remain focused on successfully navigating the current market conditions as we continue to build the Western Digital platform for long-term success and industry leadership."
