Yes, originally.  They had to compete in the market for a while after
the initial acquisition including recently when China's government
allowed them to merge operations as long as they continued to operate
independently for two years.  That period is over and the two are
beginning complete merger procedures.  Eventually HGST will disappear
and only Western Digital will remain.
