Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX) announced that it is lowering its business outlook for the fiscal first quarter ending September 30, 2022, against a worsening macro-economic backdrop.
Seagate now expects fiscal first quarter revenue of $2.1 billion plus or minus $100 million, which compares to the Company’s previous guidance range of $2.5 billion plus or minus $150 million. The consensus is $2.52 billion.
“Since our earnings call in mid-July, weaker economic trends in certain Asian regions have amplified customer inventory corrections and supply chain disruptions. We have also seen more cautious buying behavior among global Enterprise / OEM and certain U.S. cloud customers amid ongoing macro-economic uncertainties. These external factors are impacting near-term mass capacity demand while continuing to weigh on the consumer centric legacy markets,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate’s chief executive officer.
“As we operate under these dynamic market conditions, we continue to take proactive steps to minimize the impacts to the business. We are further reducing our production output, lowering expenses, and moderating fiscal 2023 capital investments. The combination of lower revenue, increased under-utilization charges and less favorable product mix in the September quarter will result in a sequential decline in margins, with non-GAAP EPS now expected to be meaningfully below our prior guidance of at least $1.20.
We continue to see solid demand for our 20+ terabyte product family and remain on-track for volume and revenue crossover with the 18-terabyte platform in the September quarter. The long-term demand drivers for mass capacity storage remain intact and Seagate’s strong product roadmap and deep customer relationships make us well positioned to capture these significant future growth opportunities,” Mosley concluded.
Seagate’s chief financial officer, Gianluca Romano will be presenting at the Deutsche Bank 2022 Technology Conference, which is scheduled to begin today at 10:30 AM PT / 1:30 PM ET.
A live audio webcast of the presentation can be accessed online at Seagate’s Investor Relations website at investors.seagate.com. A replay of the webcast will be available for at least 30 days following the event.
