  • Net revenue up 13% year-over-year to $25.5 billion


  • GAAP operating profit of $2.1 billion, or $0.65 earnings per share, up 27% year-over-year excluding a $0.15 tax settlement gain in Q2 FY06


  • Non-GAAP operating profit of $2.3 billion, or $0.70 earnings per share, up 30% year-over-year excluding a $0.15 tax settlement gain in Q2 FY06


  • Record cash flow from operations of $4.2 billion

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2007--HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2007, with net revenue of $25.5 billion, representing growth of 13% year-over-year, or 10% when adjusted for the effects of currency.

GAAP operating profit was $2.1 billion and GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.65 per share, down from $0.66 in the prior year period and up 27% excluding a $0.15 tax settlement gain recorded in the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating profit was $2.3 billion, with non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.70, up from $0.69 in the prior year period and up 30% excluding the $0.15 tax settlement gain. Non-GAAP financial information excludes $145 million of adjustments on an after-tax basis, or $0.05 per diluted share, related primarily to restructuring charges and amortization of purchased intangibles, and offset partially by a pension curtailment gain resulting from changes to the company's U.S. defined benefit pension plan. GAAP and non-GAAP financial information include all stock-based compensation expense in both current and prior year periods.

"This was a strong performance for HP," said Mark Hurd, HP chairman and chief executive officer. "We generated $3 billion of revenue growth, continued to expand earnings and achieved record cash flow from operations. While we still have considerable work ahead of us, I am confident we can continue to execute with discipline and deliver strong financial returns."

Use of non-GAAP financial information

To supplement HP's consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, HP provides non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and gross cash. HP also provides forecasts of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. A reconciliation of the adjustments to GAAP results for this quarter and prior periods is included in the tables below. In addition, an explanation of the ways in which HP management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its business, the substance behind HP management's decision to use these non-GAAP measures, the material limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP measures, the manner in which HP management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons why HP management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors is included under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" after the tables below. This additional non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating profit, operating margin, net earnings, diluted earnings per share, or cash and cash equivalents prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-looking statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If the risks or uncertainties ever materialize or the assumptions prove incorrect, the results of HP may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and assumptions. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including but not limited to any projections of revenue, margins, expenses, earnings, tax provisions, cash flows, benefit obligations, share repurchases or other financial items; any statements of the plans, strategies, and objectives of management for future operations, including execution of cost reduction programs and restructuring plans; any statements concerning the expected development, performance or market share relating to products or services; any statements regarding pending investigations, claims or disputes; any statements of expectation or belief; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Risks, uncertainties and assumptions include macroeconomic and geopolitical trends and events; execution and performance of contracts by suppliers, customers and partners; the challenge of managing asset levels, including inventory; the difficulty of aligning expense levels with revenue changes; assumptions related to pension and other post-retirement costs; expectations and assumptions relating to the execution and timing of cost reduction programs and restructuring plans; the resolution of pending investigations, claims and disputes; and other risks that are described in HP's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2007 and HP's other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including HP's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2006. As in prior quarters, the financial information set forth in this release, including tax-related items, reflects estimates based on information available at this time. While HP believes these estimates to be meaningful, these amounts could differ materially from actual reported amounts in HP's Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2007. In particular, determining HP's actual tax balances and provisions as of April 30, 2007 and for the fiscal quarter then ended requires extensive internal and external review of tax data (including consolidating and reviewing the tax provisions of numerous domestic and foreign entities) which is being completed in the ordinary course of preparing HP's Form 10-Q. HP assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement HP's consolidated condensed financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, HP provides non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and gross cash. HP also provides forecasts of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating profit is earnings from operations. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating margin is operating margin. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP net earnings is net earnings. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is diluted net earnings per share. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to gross cash is cash and cash equivalents. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP information are included in the tables above.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Used by HP

Non-GAAP operating profit and non-GAAP operating margin are defined to exclude the effects of any restructuring charges, charges relating to the amortization of purchased intangible assets, pension curtailment gains and in-process research and development charges recorded during the relevant period. Non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share consist of net earnings or diluted net earnings per share excluding those same charges as well as any gains or losses on investments recorded for periods ending on or before October 31, 2006. In addition, non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share are adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit associated with each non-GAAP item. HP's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for purposes of evaluating HP's historical and prospective financial performance, as well as HP's performance relative to its competitors. HP's management also uses these non-GAAP measures to further its own understanding of HP's segment operating performance. HP believes that excluding those items mentioned above from these non-GAAP financial measures allows HP management to better understand HP's consolidated financial performance in relationship to the operating results of HP's segments, as management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of ongoing operating results. More specifically, HP's management excludes each of those items mentioned above for the following reasons:

    --  Restructuring charges consist of costs primarily related to
        severance and benefits for employees terminated pursuant to a
        formal restructuring plan, including strategic reallocations
        or workforce reductions and early retirement programs. HP
        excludes these restructuring costs (and any reversals of
        charges recorded in prior periods) for purposes of calculating
        these non-GAAP measures because it believes that these
        historical costs do not reflect expected future operating
        expenses and do not contribute to a meaningful evaluation of
        HP's current operating performance or comparisons to HP's past
        operating performance.

    --  Purchased intangible assets consist primarily of customer
        contracts, customer lists, distribution agreements, technology
        patents, and products, trademarks and trade names purchased in
        connection with acquisitions. HP incurs charges relating to
        the amortization of these intangibles, and those charges are
        included in HP's GAAP presentation of earnings from
        operations, operating margin, net earnings and net earnings
        per share. Amortization charges for HP's purchased intangible
        assets are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are
        significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of HP's
        acquisitions. Consequently, HP excludes these charges for
        purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures to facilitate
        a more meaningful evaluation of HP's current operating
        performance and comparisons to HP's past operating
        performance.

    --  In the first quarter of fiscal 2007, HP recognized a net
        curtailment gain for its non-U.S. pension plans. The net gain
        primarily reflects a plan design change in Mexico where HP
        ceased pension accruals for current employees who did not meet
        defined criteria based on age and years of service (calculated
        as of December 31, 2006). In the second quarter of fiscal
        2007, HP recorded a pension curtailment gain primarily
        resulting from the decision to cease pension accruals under
        its U.S. defined benefit pension plan for all employees who
        were still accruing benefits under that plan. The curtailment
        gain was partially offset primarily by a settlement expense
        associated with the distribution and subsequent transfer of
        accrued pension benefits from HP's U.S. Excess Benefit Plan to
        HP's U.S. Executive Deferred Compensation Plan for the
        terminated vested plan participants. Because pension
        curtailment gains and pension settlement losses are
        inconsistent in amount and frequency, HP believes that
        eliminating these gains and losses for purposes of calculating
        these non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful
        evaluation of HP's current operating performance and
        comparisons to HP's past operating performance.

    --  In-process research and development charges relate to amounts
        assigned to tangible and intangible assets to be used in
        research and development projects that have no alternative
        future use and therefore are charged to expense at the
        acquisition date. Charges for in-process research and
        development in connection with HP's acquisitions are reflected
        in HP's GAAP presentation of earnings from operations,
        operating margin, net earnings and net earnings per share.
        In-process research and development expenses are not
        indicative of HP's ongoing operating costs and are generally
        unpredictable. Accordingly, HP believes that eliminating these
        expenses for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures
        contributes to a meaningful evaluation of HP's current
        operating performance and comparisons to HP's past operating
        performance.

    --  HP's investments consist principally of time deposits, other
        debt securities and equity securities of publicly traded and
        privately held companies. HP sells investments or adjusts the
        value of investments from time to time based on market
        conditions and, in the case of investments in equity
        securities, the strategic value of such investments. HP's
        activities in this regard are included in its GAAP
        presentation of net income and net earnings per share. Because
        the amount and timing of these gains or losses and adjustments
        are unpredictable, HP eliminated these gains or losses and
        adjustments for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net earnings
        and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for periods ending on
        or before October 31, 2006. Beginning in fiscal 2007, HP no
        longer excludes gains or losses on investments when
        calculating non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted
        earnings per share, as the amounts of those gains and losses
        have been immaterial in recent periods.

Gross cash is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as cash and cash equivalents plus short-term investments and certain long-term investments that may be liquidated within 90 days pursuant to the terms of existing put options or similar rights. HP's management uses gross cash for the purpose of determining the amount of cash available for investment in HP's businesses, funding strategic acquisitions, repurchasing stock and other purposes. HP's management also uses gross cash for the purposes of evaluating HP's historical and prospective liquidity, as well as to further its own understanding of HP's segment operating results. Because gross cash includes liquid assets that are not included in GAAP cash and cash equivalents, HP believes that gross cash provides a more accurate and complete assessment of HP's liquidity and segment operating results.

Material Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and these measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of HP's results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations in relying on these non-GAAP financial measures are:

    --  Items such as amortization of purchased intangible assets,
        though not directly affecting HP's cash position, represent
        the loss in value of intangible assets over time. The expense
        associated with this loss in value is not included in non-GAAP
        operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net
        earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and therefore
        does not reflect the full economic effect of the loss in value
        of those intangible assets.

    --  Items such as restructuring charges that are excluded from
        non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP
        net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share can have
        a material impact on cash flows and earnings per share.

    --  HP may not be able to liquidate immediately the long-term
        investments included in gross cash, which may limit the
        usefulness of gross cash as a liquidity measure.

    --  Other companies may calculate non-GAAP operating profit,
        non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP
        diluted earnings per share and gross cash differently than HP
        does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for
        comparative purposes.

Compensation for Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

HP compensates for the limitations on our use of non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and gross cash by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures only supplementally. HP also provides robust and detailed reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure within this press release and in other written materials that include these non-GAAP financial measures, and HP encourages investors to review carefully those reconciliations.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

HP believes that providing non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net earnings, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and gross cash to investors in addition to the related GAAP measures provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by HP's management in its financial and operational decision-making and allows investors to see HP's results "through the eyes" of management. HP further believes that providing this information better enables HP's investors to understand HP's operating performance and to evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by management to evaluate and measure such performance. Disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures also facilitates comparisons of HP's operating performance with the performance of other companies in HP's industry that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated in a similar manner.
