HP Board Declines Xerox’s Offer to Purchase Company

HP Board Declines Xerox’s Offer to Purchase Company

However, the company added that it remains open to signing a potential merger agreement with Xerox and is ready to discuss it with Xerox management.

On Sunday, HP’s board of directors said that they unanimously rejected Xerox’s proposal to buy the company, as the bid does not meet the shareholders’ interests and ‘significantly undervalues’ the Hewlett-Packard computer company.

According to the company, earlier in November, Xerox offered to buy HP for $33.5 billion due to be delivered in cash and stock.

In a letter from the Xerox company received by Hewlett-Packard on 5 November, HP shareholders had been promised $22 per share, which would be conducive to them owning about 48% of the merged company.

Previously, HP declared that its 7,000 to 9,000, or around nearly 16% of its world’s 55,000 job positions, as FactSet estimates, would need to be axed by 2022 to save $1 billion a year.

One of the merger proponents, activist investor Carl Icahn, who has a 10.6% stake in Xerox, recently acquired a $1.2 billion stake in HP.
