Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • (1)    Percentages may not total due to rounding.
  • Net revenue decreased 1% for the three months ended April 2, 2021 compared to the three months ended April 3, 2020, which reflects declines in revenue of approximately 8 percentage points and 2 percentage points related to pricing per gigabyte of flash and HDD, respectively, largely offset by an increase in exabyte volume of flash sold.
  • Client Devices revenue increased 10% year over year. Higher volumes of flash contributed approximately 17 percentage points of growth. Continued strength in notebook and desktop PC demand, along with new game console ramps, drove solid revenue growth. These increases were slightly offset by lower average pricing per gigabyte on flash products. Client Devices revenue for HDD products were relatively flat.
