HP to split in 2 (again)

HP’s Split Frees Up Units to Chase Deals: Real M&A - Businessweek:
"Hewlett-Packard is spinning off its personal-computer and printer operations into a company to be called HP Inc., leaving enterprise software and services as a stand-alone entity that could buy $58 billion rival EMC. Alternative merger partners for the enterprise business are NetApp Inc., Oracle Corp. (ORCL:US), International Business Machines Corp. or Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO:US), according to FBN Securities Inc. As for the new HP Inc., that could eventually be sold to Lenovo Group Ltd., Dell Inc. or Acer Inc., FBN said."
"After the breakup, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will comprise some of the company’s faster-growing, higher-margin businesses (HPQ:US) and some of the areas where it leads the market, such as servers. The HP Inc. printer and PC unit, while slower-growing, generates steady cash flow."
