HP CEO Whitman: 10 Take-Aways From Q4 Earnings


A Strong Quarter For Printing

Our printing business delivered an excellent quarter with continued strong profitability. We outperformed the market for the second successive quarter, gaining four points of total unit market share over the prior year. Revenue for the quarter was down 1 percent, but we saw growth of 1 percent in constant currency. For the second consecutive quarter we grew unit placements, which was up 6 percent over the prior year driven by strength in laser volume and our SMB home business. Our managed print services business also had a good quarter.
