Este o casatorie in cer - divizia de service a lui HP vinde 15 miliarde anual, EDS peste 20 si sint complementare deci pot pune biduri pe practic orice hard-soft mergind egal la egal cu IBM. Ce lovitura.
May 12 (Bloomberg) -- Hewlett-Packard Co., the world's biggest personal-computer maker, is in talks to buy Electronic Data Systems Corp., in what would be Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd's largest acquisition since taking over three years ago.
Hewlett-Packard confirmed the negotiations in a statement today after the Wall Street Journal said the companies were in discussions. The Palo Alto, California-based company may pay as much as $13 billion for Electronic Data, according to a person familiar with the situation who declined to be named.
The acquisition would more than double Hewlett-Packard's annual sales in its services unit to almost $40 billion. Buying Electronic Data, the world's second-biggest computer-services provider, will help Hurd, 51, take on International Business Machines Corp. in services, according to Morningstar Investment Services Inc.'s Rick Hanna in Chicago.
