HP recently completed its strategic evaluation of its Personal Systems Group (PSG) and had decided the unit will not be spun off from the company. The news of the possible spin off of its PC business to concentrate on software a couple of months back shocked the industry. Only a tiny amount of HP’s business currently comes from software. Leo Apotheker‘s short-lived tenure as CEO was believed to be as a result of a spate of unfavourable announcements, including that of a planned purchase of infrastructure software vendor Autonomy and talk of spinning off HP’s PC division.
HP, now headed by ex-Ebay CEO Meg Whitman, has made it clear that it intends to make the leading PC business in the world even better. 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.
