Its outlook cuts for its latest quarter to represent lower-than-anticipated demand and concentrated stock decreases that reduced usage amounts at some factories.
In the previous 12 months, the stock has dropped 39% through Wednesday’s close.
The firm said poorer demand was contained by the decreased prognosis for business disk drives and lower demand for desktop computer-customer products, mainly in China.
Wednesday There are many complicated problems affecting the conventional go to marketplace routes in our marketplace, which are reducing our outlook visibility,” Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Luczo said in prepared remarks.
The firm is “in the procedure for prioritizing our tactical placement, production footprint and operating expense investments” and shifts will be executed over the following several quarters, Mr. Luczo said.
Seagate has long been among the largest manufacturers of disk drives and, jointly with competing Western Digital Corp., much outsells others in the area.
April 29 the firm intends to release its quarterly financial results.
