|Item 2.02||Results of Operations and Financial Condition.|
On January 23, 2013, Western Digital Corporation (Western Digital) announced financial results for the second fiscal quarter ended December 28, 2012. A copy of the press release making this announcement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of Western Digitals Investor Information Summary for the second quarter ended December 28, 2012 is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
In Western Digitals press release attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto, Western Digital reports certain financial information, including net income and earnings per share on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP basis for the second fiscal quarter ended December 28, 2012. These non-GAAP measures exclude a tax-related matter, amortization of intangibles related to the HGST acquisition and certain employee termination benefits and other charges. Because management believes these expenses may not be indicative of ongoing operations, management believes that the non-GAAP measures presented in the press release are useful to investors as an alternative method for measuring Western Digitals operating performance and comparing it against prior periods performance.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, shall not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
