CUPERTINO, CA April 30, 2019 Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX) (the Company or Seagate) today reported financial results for its fiscal third quarter ending March 29, 2019.
Seagate executed very well in the third quarter while navigating near-term demand head-winds. Our focus on operational efficiency and expense discipline drove better-than-expected EPS and free cash flow generation, said Dave Mosley, Seagates chief executive officer.
We began shipping the industrys first 16-terabyte high capacity drives in the fiscal third quarter and expect to ramp high volume production in the second half calendar 2019.

These trends are creating significant opportunities for our mass data storage solutions and we are successfully executing our technology roadmap to address growing demand.
