This excerpt taken from the STX 10-Q filed Apr 29, 2005.

Failure to Pay Quarterly Distributions—Our failure to pay quarterly distributions to our common shareholders could cause the market price of our common shares to decline significantly.

 

We made quarterly cash distributions of $0.06 per share on each of August 20, 2004, November 19, 2004 and February 18, 2005 to our common shareholders of record as of August 6, 2004, November 5, 2004 and February 4, 2005, respectively. On March 4, 2005, our board of directors approved the increase of our quarterly cash distribution from $0.06 per share to no more than $0.08 per share. We have declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.08 per share to be paid on or before May 20, 2005 to our common shareholders of record as of May 6, 2005.

 

Our ability to pay quarterly distributions will be subject to, among other things, general business conditions within the disc drive industry, our financial results, the impact of paying distributions on our credit ratings, and legal and contractual restrictions on the payment of distributions by our subsidiaries to us or by us to our common shareholders, including restrictions imposed by the covenants contained in the indenture governing our senior notes and the credit agreement governing our senior secured credit facilities. Any reduction or discontinuation of quarterly distributions could cause the market price of our common shares to decline significantly. Moreover, in the event our payment of quarterly distributions is reduced or discontinued, our failure or inability to resume paying distributions at historical levels could result in a persistently low market valuation of our common shares.
