Data storage products maker SanDisk Corp's (SNDK.O) quarterly revenue rose 2.5 percent, reversing a decline of four quarters, helped by strong sales of chips used in solid state drives and USB flash drives.
The company's net income rose to $78.4 million, or 37 cents per share, in the first quarter ended April 3 from $39 million, or 17 cents per share, a year earlier.
Total revenue for SanDisk, which is being bought by Western Digital Corp (WDC.O), rose to $1.37 billion from $1.33 billion.
