A welcome sign at the main entrance of the HP headquarter in Palo Alto
Hewlett-Packard, commonly referred to as HP, is an information technology corporation based in Palo Alto, California. The company was founded by Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard in a small garage on January 1, 1939. As of 2012, HP is the largest technology company in the world in terms of revenue, ranking 10 in the Fortune Global 500. As of 2012, Hewlett-Packard has made a total of 129 acquisitions since 1986. Its first acquisition was the F.L. Moseley Company in 1958. This move enabled HP to enter the plotter business, which was the predecessor to its printer business today. In 1989, HP purchased Apollo Computer for US$476 million, enabling HP to become the largest supplier of computer workstations. In 1995, the company bought another computer manufacturer Convex Computer for US$150 million. In 2000, HP spun off its measurement, chemical and medical businesses into an independent company named Agilent Technologies. The company's largest acquisition came in 2002, when it merged with Compaq, a personal computer manufacturer, for US$25 billion. The combined company overtook Dell for the largest share of the personal computer market worldwide in the second quarter.
Stream of acquisitions strengthened HP position in the software business. The largest software company purchased prior to 2011 was Mercury Interactive for US$4.5 billion. This acquisition doubled the size of HP's software business to more than US$2 billion in annual revenue. Period between 2012 and 2013 had no acquisitions in any of its Business segments as the firm was recouping $8.8bn write-off suffered as a result of acquisition of British software company, Autonomy Corporation for $11bn in 2011. After this 2-year gap, in 2014, HP returned to acquisition market by acquiring Computer Networking Software company, Shunra. The majority of companies acquired by HP are based in the United States.
