Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

Note 1: Basis of Presentation

        In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements of Hewlett-Packard Company and its consolidated subsidiaries ("HP") contain all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly HP's financial position as of April 30, 2015 and October 31, 2014, its results of operations for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014 and its cash flows for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014.

        The results of operations for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015 and cash flows for the six months ended April 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with HP's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2014, including "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" and the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in Items 7, 7A and 8, respectively, included therein.

Principles of Consolidation

        The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements include the accounts of HP and other subsidiaries and affiliates in which HP has a controlling financial interest or is the primary beneficiary. HP accounts for investments in companies over which HP has the ability to exercise significant influence but does not hold a controlling interest under the equity method, and HP records its proportionate share of income or losses in Interest and other, net in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings. HP presents non-controlling interests as a separate component within Total stockholders' equity in the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets. Net earnings attributable to the non-controlling interests are eliminated within Interest and other, net in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings and are not presented separately as they were not material for any period presented. HP has eliminated all intercompany accounts and transactions.

Reclassifications

        HP has implemented certain segment and business unit realignments in order to align its segment financial reporting more closely with its current business structure. Reclassifications of certain prior-year segment and business unit financial information have been made to conform to the current-year presentation. None of the changes impacts HP's previously reported consolidated net revenue, earnings from operations, net earnings or net earnings per share ("EPS"). See Note 2 for a further discussion of HP's segment realignment.

Use of Estimates

        The preparation of financial statements in accordance with United States ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in HP's Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

Note 1: Basis of Presentation (Continued)

Accounting Pronouncements

        In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") amended the existing accounting standards for intangible assets. The amendments provide explicit guidance to customers in determining the accounting for fees paid in a cloud computing arrangement, wherein the arrangements that do not convey a software license to the customer are accounted for as service contracts. HP is required to adopt the guidance in the first quarter of fiscal 2017; however early adoption is permitted as is retrospective application. HP is currently evaluating the impact of these amendments on its Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements.

        In April 2015, the FASB amended the existing accounting standards for imputation of interest. The amendments require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by these amendments. HP is required to adopt the guidance in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments should be applied retrospectively with the adjusted balance sheet of each individual period presented, in order to reflect the period-specific effects of applying the new guidance. HP is currently evaluating the timing, transition method and the impact of these amendments on its Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements.

        In May 2014, the FASB amended the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. The amendments are based on the principle that revenue should be recognized to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. HP is required to adopt the amendments in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Early adoption is not permitted. The amendments may be applied retrospectively to each prior period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect recognized as of the date of initial application. HP is continuing to evaluate the impact of these amendments and the transition alternatives on its Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements.

        HP's operations are organized into seven segments for financial reporting purposes: Personal Systems, Printing, Enterprise Group ("EG"), Enterprise Services ("ES"), Software, HP Financial Services ("HPFS") and Corporate Investments. HP's organizational structure is based on a number of factors that management uses to evaluate, view and run its business operations, which include, but are not limited to, customer base and homogeneity of products and technology. The segments are based on this organizational structure and information reviewed by HP's management to evaluate segment results.

        The Personal Systems segment and the Printing segment are structured beneath a broader Printing and Personal Systems Group ("PPS"). While PPS is not a reportable segment, HP may provide financial data aggregating the Personal Systems and the Printing segments in order to provide a supplementary view of its business.

        Corporate Investments includes HP Labs and certain cloud-related business incubation projects amongst others.

Segment Policy

        HP derives the results of the business segments directly from its internal management reporting system. The accounting policies HP uses to derive segment results are substantially the same as those the consolidated company uses. Management measures the performance of each segment based on several metrics, including earnings from operations. Management uses these results, in part, to evaluate the performance of, and to allocate resources to, each of the segments.

        Segment revenue includes revenues from sales to external customers and intersegment revenues that reflect transactions between the segments on an arm's-length basis. Intersegment revenues primarily consist of sales of hardware and software that are sourced internally and, in the majority of the cases, are financed as operating leases by HPFS. HP's consolidated net revenue is derived and reported after the elimination of intersegment revenues from such arrangements.

        HP periodically engages in intercompany advanced royalty payment and licensing arrangements that may result in advance payments between subsidiaries. Revenues from these intercompany arrangements are deferred and recognized as earned over the term of the arrangement by the HP legal entities involved in such transactions; however, these advanced payments are eliminated from revenues as reported by HP and its business segments. As disclosed in Note 6, in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, HP executed an intercompany advanced royalty payment arrangement resulting in advanced payments of $8.2 billion, while during fiscal 2014 HP executed a multi-year intercompany licensing arrangement and intercompany advanced royalty payment arrangement which resulted in combined advanced payments of $11.5 billion. In these transactions, the payments were received in the U.S. from a foreign consolidated affiliate, with a deferral of intercompany revenues over the term of the arrangements, approximately 5 years and 15 years, respectively. The impact of these intercompany arrangements is eliminated from both HP consolidated and segment revenues.

        Financing interest in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings reflects interest expense on debt attributable to HPFS. Debt attributable to HPFS consists of intercompany equity that is

treated as debt for segment reporting purposes, intercompany debt, and borrowing- and funding-related activity associated with HPFS and its subsidiaries.

        HP does not allocate to its segments certain operating expenses, which it manages at the corporate level. These unallocated costs include certain corporate governance costs, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, separation costs and acquisition-related charges.

Segment Realignment

        Effective at the beginning of its first quarter of fiscal 2015, HP implemented an organizational change to align its segment financial reporting more closely with its current business structure. This organizational change resulted in the transfer of third-party multi-vendor support arrangements from the Technology Services ("TS") business unit within the EG segment to the ITO business unit within the ES segment.

        HP has reflected this change to its segment information retrospectively to the earliest period presented, which has resulted in the removal of intersegment revenue from the TS business unit within the EG segment and the related corporate intersegment revenue eliminations, and the transfer of operating profit from the TS business unit within the EG segment to the ITO business unit within the ES segment. This change had no impact on HP's previously reported consolidated net revenue, earnings from operations, net earnings or net earnings per share.

        There have been no material changes to the total assets of HP's individual segments since October 31, 2014.

    Fiscal 2012 Restructuring Plan

        On May 23, 2012, HP adopted a multi-year restructuring plan (the "2012 Plan") designed to simplify business processes, accelerate innovation and deliver better results for customers, employees and stockholders. HP estimates that it will eliminate approximately 55,000 positions in connection with the 2012 Plan through fiscal 2015, with a portion of those employees exiting the company as part of voluntary enhanced early retirement ("EER") programs in the U.S. and in certain other countries. As of October 31, 2014, HP estimated that it will recognize approximately $5.5 billion in aggregate charges in connection with the 2012 Plan. As of April 30, 2015, HP expects approximately $4.9 billion to relate to workforce reductions, including the EER programs, and approximately $565 million to relate to infrastructure, including data center and real estate consolidation, and other items. As of April 30, 2015, HP had recorded $5.3 billion in aggregate charges of which $4.8 billion related to workforce reductions and $552 million related to infrastructure, including data center and real estate consolidation, and other items. HP expects to record the remaining charges through the end of HP's 2015 fiscal year as the accounting recognition criteria are met. As of April 30, 2015, HP had eliminated approximately 47,600 positions for which a severance payment has been or will be made as part of the 2012 Plan. The severance- and infrastructure-related cash payments associated with the 2012 Plan are expected to be paid out through fiscal 2021.

Note 4: Retirement and Post-Retirement Benefit Plans (Continued)

Employer Contributions and Funding Policy

        HP's policy is to fund its pension plans so that it makes at least the minimum contribution required by local government, funding and taxing authorities.

        As of April 30, 2015, HP lowered its initial estimates related to expected contributions in fiscal 2015 by $52 million due to favorable foreign exchange rates and a change in the estimated local funding requirements. HP now expects its fiscal 2015 contributions to be approximately $641 million to its non-U.S. pension plans, approximately $32 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants and approximately $43 million to cover benefit claims for HP's post-retirement benefit plans.

        During the six months ended April 30, 2015, HP contributed $471 million to its non-U.S. pension plans, paid $14 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants, and paid $21 million to cover benefit claims under HP's post-retirement benefit plans. During the remainder of fiscal 2015, HP anticipates making additional contributions of approximately $170 million to its non-U.S. pension plans and approximately $18 million to its U.S. non-qualified plan participants and expects to pay approximately $22 million to cover benefit claims under HP's post-retirement benefit plans.

        In January 2015, HP offered certain terminated vested participants of the U.S. HP Pension Plan the option of receiving their pension benefit in a one-time voluntary lump sum window. Approximately 50% of the eligible participants elected to receive their benefits and as a result the pension plan trust paid $810 million in lump sum payments to these participants in May 2015. The program resulted in a reduction in the projected benefit obligation that was offset by a lower decrease in plan assets such that the net funded status of the plan improved.

        HP's pension and other post-retirement benefit costs and obligations depend on various assumptions. Differences between expected and actual returns on investments and changes in discount rates and other actuarial assumptions are reflected as unrecognized gains or losses, and such gains or losses are amortized to earnings in future periods. A deterioration in the funded status of a plan could result in a need for additional company contributions or an increase in net pension and post-retirement benefit costs in future periods. Actuarial gains or losses are determined at the measurement date and are amortized over the remaining service life for active plans or the life expectancy of plan participants for frozen plans.

Note 5: Stock-Based Compensation

        HP's stock-based compensation plans include HP's principal equity plans as well as various equity plans assumed through business combinations. HP's principal equity plans permit the issuance of restricted stock awards, stock options and performance-based awards.

        Stock-based compensation expense and the resulting tax benefits were as follows:

Note 5: Stock-Based Compensation (Continued)

    Restricted Stock Awards

        Restricted stock awards are non-vested stock awards that may include grants of restricted stock or restricted stock units. For the six months ended April 30, 2015, HP granted only restricted stock units.

        A summary of restricted stock award activity is as follows:

 
  Six months ended
April 30, 2015
 
 
  Shares   Weighted-
Average Grant Date
Fair Value Per Share
 
 
  In thousands
   
 

Outstanding at beginning of period

    40,808   $ 24  

Granted

    15,722   $ 37  

Vested

    (16,325 ) $ 24  

Forfeited

    (1,540 ) $ 26  

Outstanding at end of period

    38,665   $ 30  

        At April 30, 2015, there was $746 million of unrecognized pre-tax stock-based compensation expense related to non-vested restricted stock awards, which HP expects to recognize over the remaining weighted-average vesting period of 1.5 years.

    Stock Options

        HP utilizes the Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing formula to estimate the fair value of stock options subject to service-based vesting conditions. HP estimates the fair value of stock options subject to performance-contingent vesting conditions using a combination of a Monte Carlo simulation model and a lattice model, as these awards contain market conditions. The weighted-average fair value and the assumptions used to measure fair value were as follows:

 
  Three months
ended April 30
  Six months
ended April 30
 
 
  2015   2014   2015   2014  

Weighted-average fair value of grants per option(1)

  $ 6.77   $ 7.03   $ 7.98   $ 7.43  

Expected volatility(2)

    27.7 %   30.4 %   26.3 %   33.5 %

Risk-free interest rate(3)

    1.4 %   1.6 %   1.7 %   1.8 %

Expected dividend yield(4)

    2.2 %   2.1 %   1.7 %   2.2 %

Expected term in years(5)

    5.2     5.2     5.8     5.7  

(1)
The weighted-average fair value was based on stock options granted during the period.

(2)
For all awards granted in fiscal 2015, expected volatility was estimated using the implied volatility derived from options traded on HP's common stock. For awards granted in fiscal 2014, expected volatility for awards subject to service-based vesting was estimated using the implied volatility derived from options traded on HP's common stock, whereas for performance-contingent awards, expected volatility was estimated using the historical volatility of HP's common stock.

(3)
The risk-free interest rate was estimated based on the yield on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues.

(4)
The expected dividend yield represents a constant dividend yield applied for the duration of the expected term of the award.

        The aggregate intrinsic value in the table above represents the total pre-tax intrinsic value that option holders would have realized had all option holders exercised their options on the last trading day of the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The aggregate intrinsic value is the difference between HP's closing stock price on the last trading day of the second quarter of fiscal 2015 and the exercise price, multiplied by the number of in-the-money options. Total intrinsic value of options exercised for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015 was $35 million and $169 million, respectively.

        At April 30, 2015, there was $77 million of unrecognized pre-tax stock-based compensation expense related to unvested stock options, which HP expects to recognize over the remaining weighted-average vesting period of 1.9 years.

Note 6: Taxes on Earnings

    Provision for Taxes

        HP's effective tax rate was 21.7% and 22.8% for the three months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and 21.8% and 22.5% for the six months ended April 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. HP's effective tax rate generally differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% due to favorable tax rates associated with certain earnings from HP's operations in lower-tax jurisdictions throughout the world. HP has not provided U.S. taxes for all foreign earnings because HP plans to reinvest some of those earnings indefinitely outside the U.S.

        In the three and six months ended April 30, 2015, HP recorded discrete items resulting in net tax benefits of $104 million and $185 million, respectively. These amounts included a tax benefit of $86 million and $115 million, for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015, respectively, on separation charges and a tax benefit of $32 million and $53 million for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015, respectively, on restructuring charges. The six month period ended April 30, 2015, also

included a tax benefit of $47 million arising from the retroactive research and development credit provided by the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 signed into law in December 2014. These tax benefits were partially offset by various tax charges of $14 million and $30 million for the three and six months ended April 30, 2015.

        In the three and six months ended April 30, 2014, HP recorded discrete items resulting in net tax charges of $13 million and $35 million, respectively. These amounts include tax charges of $43 million and $80 million for the three and six months ended April 30, 2014, respectively, partially offset by tax benefits on restructuring charges of $30 million and $45 million for the three and six months ended April 30, 2014, respectively.

    Uncertain Tax Positions

        HP is subject to income tax in the U.S. and approximately 105 other countries and is subject to routine corporate income tax audits in many of these jurisdictions. In addition, HP is subject to numerous ongoing audits by federal, state and foreign tax authorities. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") is conducting an audit of HP's 2009, 2010 and 2011 income tax returns. HP has received from the IRS Notices of Deficiency for its fiscal 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004 and 2005 tax years, and Revenue Agent's Reports ("RAR") for its fiscal 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007 and 2008 tax years. In addition, HP expects the IRS to issue RARs for 2009, 2010 and 2011 tax years relating to certain tax positions taken on the filed tax returns, including matters related to the U.S. taxation of certain intercompany loans. While these RARs may be material in amount, HP believes it has valid positions supporting its tax returns and, if necessary, it will rigorously defend such matters.

        With respect to major foreign and state tax jurisdictions, HP is no longer subject to tax authority examinations for years prior to 1999. HP is subject to a foreign tax audit concerning an intercompany transaction for fiscal 2009. The relevant taxing authority has proposed an assessment of approximately $680 million. HP is contesting this proposed assessment.

        HP believes it has provided adequate reserves for all tax deficiencies or reductions in tax benefits that could result from federal, state and foreign tax audits. HP regularly assesses the likely outcomes of these audits in order to determine the appropriateness of HP's tax provision. HP adjusts its uncertain tax positions to reflect the impact of negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel, and other information and events pertaining to a particular audit. However, income tax audits are inherently unpredictable and there can be no assurance that HP will accurately predict the outcome of these audits. The amounts ultimately paid on resolution of an audit could be materially different from the amounts previously included in the Provision for taxes and therefore the resolution of one or more of these uncertainties in any particular period could have a material impact on net income or cash flows.

        As of April 30, 2015, the amount of unrecognized tax benefits was $4.2 billion, of which up to $2.3 billion would affect HP's effective tax rate if realized. HP recognizes interest income from favorable settlements and interest expense and penalties accrued on unrecognized tax benefits in Provision for taxes in the Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings. As of April 30, 2015, HP had accrued $246 million for interest and penalties.

        HP engages in continuous discussion and negotiation with taxing authorities regarding tax matters in various jurisdictions. HP does not expect complete resolution of any IRS audit cycle within the next 12 months. However, it is reasonably possible that certain federal, foreign and state tax issues may be concluded in the next 12 months, including issues involving transfer pricing and other matters. Accordingly, HP believes it is reasonably possible that its existing unrecognized tax benefits may be reduced by an amount up to $1.5 billion within the next 12 months.

    Deferred Tax Assets and Liabilities

        Current and long-term deferred tax assets and liabilities are presented in the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheets as follows:

 
  As of  
 
  April 30,
2015
  October 31,
2014

        HP periodically engages in intercompany advanced royalty payment and licensing arrangements that may result in advance payments between subsidiaries in different tax jurisdictions. When the local tax treatment of the intercompany licensing arrangements differs from U.S. GAAP treatment, deferred taxes are recognized. In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, HP executed an intercompany advanced royalty payment arrangement resulting in advanced payments of $8.2 billion, while during fiscal 2014, HP executed a multi-year intercompany licensing arrangement and an intercompany advanced royalty payment arrangement which resulted in combined advanced payments of $11.5 billion, the result of which was the recognition of net U.S. long-term deferred tax assets of $2.1 billion and $1.7 billion in the respective periods. In these transactions, the payments were received in the U.S. from a foreign consolidated affiliate, with a deferral of intercompany revenues over the term of the arrangements, approximately 5 years and 15 years, respectively. Intercompany royalty revenue and the amortization expense related to the licensing rights are eliminated in consolidation.

        Separation costs are expenses associated with HP's plan to separate into two independent publicly-traded companies. These costs include finance, IT, consulting and legal fees, real estate, and other items that are incremental and one-time in nature. HP is recording a deferred tax asset on these costs and expenses as they are incurred through fiscal 2015. We expect a portion of these deferred tax assets associated with separation costs and expenses will be eliminated, as non-deductible expenses, at the time the separation is executed. Furthermore, HP has also concluded on the legal form of the separation and subsequent to April 30, 2015 announced that Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be the spinnee in the U.S. Accordingly, during the second half of fiscal 2015, HP now expects to effect certain internal reorganizations of, and transactions among, its wholly owned subsidiaries and operating activities in preparation for the legal form of separation. As a result, in future periods we expect to record adjustments to certain deferred tax assets reflecting the impact of separation related activities. HP's results of operations could be materially affected in any particular period by the impact of these matters.

Note 8: Financing Receivables and Operating Leases (Continued)

    Credit Quality Indicators

        Due to the homogenous nature of its leasing transactions, HP manages its financing receivables on an aggregate basis when assessing and monitoring credit risk. Credit risk is generally diversified due to the large number of entities comprising HP's customer base and their dispersion across many different industries and geographic regions. HP evaluates the credit quality of an obligor at lease inception and monitors that credit quality over the term of a transaction. HP assigns risk ratings to each lease based on the creditworthiness of the obligor and other variables that augment or mitigate the inherent credit risk of a particular transaction. Such variables include the underlying value and liquidity of the collateral, the essential use of the equipment, the term of the lease and the inclusion of credit enhancements, such as guarantees, letters of credit or security deposits.

        The credit risk profile of gross financing receivables, based on internally assigned ratings, was as follows:

 
  As of  
 
  April 30,
2015
  October 31,
2014
 
 
  In millions
 

Risk Rating:

             

Low

  $ 3,318   $ 3,536  

Moderate

    2,998     3,022  

High

    89     112  

Total

  $ 6,405   $ 6,670  

        Accounts rated low risk typically have the equivalent of a Standard & Poor's rating of BBB– or higher, while accounts rated moderate risk generally have the equivalent of BB+ or lower. HP classifies accounts as high risk when it considers the financing receivable to be impaired or when management believes there is a significant near-term risk of impairment.

    Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

        The allowance for doubtful accounts for financing receivables is comprised of a general reserve and a specific reserve. HP maintains general reserve percentages on a regional basis and bases such percentages on several factors, including consideration of historical credit losses and portfolio delinquencies, trends in the overall weighted-average risk rating of the portfolio, current economic conditions and information derived from competitive benchmarking. HP excludes accounts evaluated as part of the specific reserve from the general reserve analysis. HP establishes a specific reserve for financing receivables with identified exposures, such as customer defaults, bankruptcy or other events, that make it unlikely HP will recover its investment. For individually evaluated receivables, HP determines the expected cash flow for the receivable, which includes consideration of estimated proceeds from disposition of the collateral, and calculates an estimate of the potential loss and the probability of loss. For those accounts where a loss is considered probable, HP records a specific reserve. HP generally writes off a receivable or records a specific reserve when a receivable becomes 180 days past due, or sooner if HP determines that the receivable is not collectible.

    Non-Accrual and Past-Due Financing Receivables

        HP considers a financing receivable to be past due when the minimum payment is not received by the contractually specified due date. HP generally places financing receivables on non-accrual status, which is suspension of interest accrual, and considers such receivables to be non-performing at the earlier of the time at which full payment of principal and interest becomes doubtful or the receivable becomes 90 days past due. Subsequently, HP may recognize revenue on non-accrual financing receivables as payments are received, which is on a cash basis, if HP deems the recorded financing receivable to be fully collectible; however, if there is doubt regarding the ultimate collectability of the recorded financing receivable, all cash receipts are applied to the carrying amount of the financing receivable, which is the cost recovery method. In certain circumstances, such as when HP deems a delinquency to be of an administrative nature, financing receivables may accrue interest after becoming 90 days past due. The non-accrual status of a financing receivable may not impact a customer's risk rating. After all of a customer's delinquent principal and interest balances are settled, HP may return the related financing receivable to accrual status.
