Xerox Bids for HP

November 7, 2019

Xerox is bidding $22 per share for HP. The offer boils down to $17 in cash and .137 Xerox shares for each HP share.

HP's market cap is about three times the size of Xerox. The levered deal is still expected to leave the combined entity's debt investment grade.

HP said, As reviewed at HPs most recent Securities Analyst Meeting, we have great confidence in our multi-year strategy and our ability to position the company for continued success in an evolving industry, particularly given the multiple levers available to drive value creation.

Against this backdrop, we have had conversations with Xerox Holdings Corporation (NYSE: XRX) from time to time about a potential business combination. We have considered, among other things, what would be required to merit a transaction. Most recently, we received a proposal transmitted yesterday.

We have a record of taking action if there is a better path forward and will continue to act with deliberation, discipline and an eye towards what is in the best interest of all our shareholders.
