Announcing our earnings date

Restricted – For Internal Use Only

To All HP employees

 

Team,

 

Today we issued a press release announcing that we will report our first quarter earnings on Monday, February 24.

 

While we report earnings every quarter, there is likely to be increased attention around this call given the ongoing situation with Xerox. I wanted to make you aware, as we will use the call to provide our shareholders with additional information about our plans to drive sustainable long-term value.

 

The reason we have not yet responded to Xerox’s most recent press release is that we are in our quiet period and limited in what we can publicly share with the market. We believe it is essential that our shareholders have full information on our earnings and the value inherent in our business before responding to Xerox.

 

I encourage you to listen to the earnings call, which will be available at www.hp.com/investor/2020Q1Webcast at 5:00 p.m. ET / 2:00 p.m. PT on February 24. A replay of the audio webcast will be available at the same website shortly after the call.

 

We fully expect media attention to continue in the coming weeks and months. I will continue to share updates, and I want to thank you for all you’re doing to execute on our plans and deliver for our customers, partners and shareholders.

 

Saludos,

Enrique
