Hard drive maker Western Digital has posted revenues totalling $2.4 billion for its fourth quarter, with net income of $158 million, translating to $0.67 per share. Total hard drives sold for the period was 54 million units.

The quarterly results included total expenses of $35 million associated with the planned acquisition of Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST) announced March 7, 2011, and for unrelated litigation accruals. Excluding these expenses, non-GAAP net income was $193 million or $0.81 per share.

“In the June quarter, we were able to meet stronger than anticipated demand, especially from our OEM customers,” said John Coyne, president and chief executive officer. “We believe the stronger demand was driven by increased use of sea freight in advance of the second half of the calendar year as well as supply continuity concerns in the aftermath of the Japan earthquake.
