HP Inc’s rev­enue for 2018-2019 is es­ti­mated at USD 1,300 Mn. HP is com­prised of the fol­low­ing busi­ness seg­ments: Per­sonal Sys­tems, Print­ing, and Cor­po­rate In­vest­ments. In fis­cal 2018, HP de­liv­ered prof­itable growth in both Per­sonal Sys­tems and Print­ing seg­ments while in­vest­ing strate­gi­cally to fuel growth and cap­ture the fu­ture. Its con­tin­ued ef­forts re­sulted in the fol­low­ing ac­com­plish­ments:

• De­liv­ered rev­enue growth and mar­gin ex­pan­sion in Per­sonal Sys­tems, driven by in­no­va­tion and fo­cus on strate­gic growth ar­eas such as De­vice as a Ser­vice. • Ex­e­cuted effectivel­y in Print­ing with con­sis­tent rev­enue and profit growth com­bined with progress in strate­gic growth ar­eas in­clud­ing Graph­ics and A3 print­ing. • Con­tin­ued the in­te­gra­tion of Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics printer busi­ness ex­pand­ing our A3 prod­uct port­fo­lio and ac­quired Apogee Cor­po­ra­tion, which enhanced our abil­ity to de­liver value-added ser­vices while ac­cel­er­at­ing the de­ploy­ment of its tech­nol­ogy into the grow­ing A3 con­trac­tual mar­ket. • Strength­ened the lead­er­ship po­si­tion in 3D print­ing by ex­tend­ing its prod­uct port­fo­lio with the ad­di­tion of full colour and met­als, ex­pand­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion ecosys­tem, and in­creas­ing the num­ber of re­peat or­ders and larger scale cus­tomer de­ploy­ments. • Re­turned over $3.5 bil­lion of cap­i­tal to stock­hold­ers in the form of div­i­dends and share re­pur­chases. In Per­sonal Sys­tems, HP Inc’s strate­gic fo­cus is on prof­itable growth through hy­per mar­ket seg­men­ta­tion, with re­spect to enhanced in­no­va­tion in multi-op­er­at­ing sys­tems, multi-ar­chi­tec­ture, ge­og­ra­phy, cus­tomer seg­ments and other key at­tributes. Ad­di­tion­ally, it is in­vest­ing in pre­mium form fac­tors such as con­vert­ible note­books to meet cus­tomer pref­er­ence for mo­bile, thin­ner and lighter de­vices. They have in­creased their fo­cus on De­vice as a Ser­vice as the mar­ket be­gins to shift to con­trac­tual so­lu­tions.

In Print­ing, HP Inc’s strate­gic growth fo­cus is on shift­ing to con­trac­tual so­lu­tions and Graph­ics, as well as ex­pand­ing its foot­print in the 3D print­ing mar­ket­place. Busi­ness print­ing in­cludes de­liv­er­ing so­lu­tions to SMBs and en­ter­prise cus­tomers, such as multi-func­tion and PageWide print­ers, in­clud­ing its JetIn­tel­li­gence lineup of LaserJet print­ers. The shift to con­trac­tual so­lu­tions in­cludes an in­creased fo­cus on Man­aged Print Ser­vices and In­stant Ink, which presents strong af­ter-mar­ket sup­plies op­por­tu­ni­ties. In the Graph­ics space, their fo­cus is on in­no­va­tions such as our Indigo and La­tex prod­uct of­fer­ings. They plan to con­tinue to fo­cus on shift­ing the mix in the in­stalled base to higher value units and ex­pand­ing our in­no­va­tive Ink, Laser, Graph­ics and 3D print­ing pro­grammes.
