Western Digital Corp. - Analyst/Investor Day

Also, a reminder, please, for everyone to put their cell phones on silent mode. And a reminder that no pictures or videos are allowed at the product demos that we have today. We have product demos, as you've seen at the back of the room, and we have a specific time set aside for each of you to spend at least half an hour viewing those demos in the back of the room as well as in the foyer, where our branded products team has a demonstration. And then also, I think many of you have seen our stream machine outside, which is -- and this is the -- today's the first stop of a nationwide tour for that vehicle, showing off and marketing our new router products.

Just logistically, in terms of lunch and the demos, we've got 1 hour set aside and half an hour for each. And those of you with green badges will be attending the demos first. Those of you with red badges should have lunch first and vice versa after that first half an hour.

I'd now like to introduce the Chief Executive Officer of Western Digital, John Coyne.

John F. Coyne

Thank you, Bob. Well good morning, everyone. And my welcome to you and my thanks to you for attending today. We have, I think, a very exciting program, and we intend to demonstrate during the day the passion and the passion for change that has been the underpinnings of Western Digital's success formula in driving consistent and continuous profitable growth over the last many years.

The vision for the corporation is to empower people, to create and manage and experience and preserve digital content. Our core expertise over the years has been the preservation of digital content, but as that digital content has become completely pervasive in our lives and touches almost everything we do, whether in work or play, the sheer scale of that preserved data and that communicated data is requiring that we put our passions and our skills and our experience and capability to work, enabling people to manage simply and interact and access that information in a simple coherent way, and we see significant opportunity in building on our core preservation business to expand our role in the ecosystem and to ensure that we bring continued added value to customers as we move ahead. And you'll see some of the areas in which we're -- how we're thinking about that and how we're acting to achieve that expanded vision for the corporation.
