“Seagate achieved our second consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth and exceeded our financial performance expectations for the March quarter, through solid execution and strong demand for our mass storage products. Looking ahead, the growing Data Age demand on storage, combined with consistent investment in our leading storage technology platforms and efficient operational capabilities, will continue to drive economic value for customers and returns for shareholders,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate’s chief executive officer.
