HP to Acquire VoodooPC
HP has signed a definitive agreement to acquire VoodooPC, designer and manufacturer of high-performance and personalized gaming computer systems.

Following the close of the transaction, HP will form a separate business unit within its Personal Systems Group focused on the gaming industry. VoodooPC co-owner Rahul Sood will become chief technologist for the unit and co-owner Ravi Sood will become the unit's director of strategy.

Both executives will report to Phil McKinney, who will become general manager of the gaming business unit while maintaining his current role as chief technology officer of HP's Personal Systems Group. This operational model will align the gaming business with HP's research and development organization by providing access to the latest technologies and innovation.

Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, VoodooPC has been dedicated to delivering leading-edge performance, style and craftsmanship to PC enthusiasts.

This acquisition, once closed, will extend HP's presence into the high-performance gaming market and globally expand the reach of the VoodooPC brand. HP plans to maintain VoodooPC's current distribution model and brand name along with its marketing, sales, support and development operations.
