HP to keep its PC Division
Posted on 28-Oct-2011 09:49 | Tags Filed under: News



HP has completed its evaluation of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group (PSG) and has decided the unit will remain part of the company.

HP objectively evaluated the strategic, financial and operational impact of spinning off PSG. Its clear after our analysis that keeping PSG within HP is right for customers and partners, right for shareholders, and right for employees, said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer. HP is committed to PSG, and together we are stronger.

The strategic review involved subject matter experts from across the businesses and functions. The data-driven evaluation revealed the depth of the integration that has occurred across key operations such as supply chain, IT and procurement. It also detailed the significant extent to which PSG contributes to HPs solutions portfolio and overall brand value. Finally, it also showed that the cost to recreate these in a standalone company outweighed any benefits of separation.

The outcome of this exercise reaffirms HPs model and the value for its customers and shareholders. PSG is a key component of HPs strategy to deliver higher value, lasting relationships with consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprise customers. The HP board of directors is confident that PSG can drive profitable growth as part of the larger entity and accelerate solutions from other parts of HPs business.

PSG has a history of innovation and technological leadership as well as an established record of industry-leading profitability. It is the No. 1 manufacturer of personal computers in the world with revenues totaling $40.7 billion for fiscal year 2010.

As part of HP, PSG will continue to give customers and partners the advantages of product innovation and global scale across the industrys broadest portfolio of PCs, workstations and more, said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP. We intend to make the leading PC business in the world even better.
