I received a press release that WD had reported recently its revenue of $2.6 billion, hard drive shipments of 51.1 million units, and net income of $400 million, or $1.71 per share, for its third fiscal quarter ended Apr. 2, 2010. The company generated $588 million in cash from operations during the third quarter, ending with total cash and cash equivalents of $2.8 billion.
