Hewlett-Packard Splits into Two
HP separating computer & printer business from its corporate hardware & services operations
HP has announced that it has plans in place to split the company into two companies, with one solely focusing on consumer technology. This division, at the grass root level, will separate its computer and printer business from its server and storage business. This is said to be a move in a bid to reinvigorate the PC maker’s push into the mobile devices market.
HP said that it’s computing and enterprise units will become separate publicly traded companies by the end of fiscal 2015. The company’s computer and printing businesses will be housed under HP Inc and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will include technology infrastructure, software and services. The move is seen by many as a Wall Street tactic and is expected to provide HP’s enterprise business with additional cash to pursue organic growth and potential acquisitions. It may also free up some cash for new product development.
