HP разделяет свой бизнес на две компании
As you may have seen, earlier today HP announced plans to separate into two new publicly traded Fortune 50 companies: one comprising HP’s market-leading enterprise infrastructure, software and services businesses, which will do business as Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and one that will comprise HP’s market-leading printing and personal systems businesses, which will do business as HP Inc.
This is great news for you, our partners. By focusing each company’s charter on specific market segments, we can accelerate the pace of HP’s innovation and simplify our interactions with you. The result will be stronger portfolios you can leverage to solve your customer challenges.
Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will have a unique portfolio and strong multi-year innovation roadmap across services, infrastructure and software to allow customers to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by cloud, big data, security and mobility in the New Style of IT. By leveraging its HP Financial Services capability, the company will be well positioned to create unique technology deployment models for customers and partners based on their specific business needs. Additionally, the company intends for HP Financial Services to continue to provide financing and business model innovation for customers and partners of HP Inc.
HP Inc. will be a proven leader in the PC and printing markets with exciting new technologies on the horizon. The new company’s strong profitability and free cash flow will enable investments in growth markets such as 3-D printing and new computing experiences. At the same time, HP Inc. will continue to execute against a well-defined and established strategic plan, ensuring continuity for customers and consistent value to shareholders.
Meg Whitman will be President and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and Cathie Lesjak will be Chief Financial Officer. Pat Russo will move from Lead Independent Director of HP to Chairman of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise. Meg will also serve on the Board of Directors.
Dion Weisler, executive vice president of HP’s Printing and Personal Systems business (PPS), will lead HP Inc. as President and Chief Executive Officer. Meg will take on the role of Non-Executive Chairman of HP Inc.’s Board of Directors.
Today’s announcement comes as HP approaches the fourth year of its five-year turnaround plan. Over this time, we have executed successfully against our turnaround objectives, keeping customers and you, our partners at the center of what we do. We have reignited our innovation pipeline, strengthened our go-to-market capabilities, rebuilt our balance sheet, and inspired our employees. We are now better positioned to accelerate performance, drive sustained growth and demonstrate clear industry leadership in key areas.
By creating two new companies, we will have the independence, focus, financial resources and flexibility needed to adapt quickly to market and customer dynamics.
We believe the outcome of this work will provide you a stronger, better partner with an unmatched portfolio to drive greater success for your business. You and your company have played a critical role in helping the turnaround at HP over the last three years and we thank you for that. Both companies will have the same commitment to the channel that our partners have come to trust, but with more focus, flexibility and accountability. We look forward to partnering with you in the next phase of our journey.
