    HP Reports Preliminary Third Quarter 2004 Results

    HP Projects Record Third Quarter for
    Imaging and Printing

    Despite Posting 2004 third quarter earnings well 
    below forecasts due mainly to weak sales of computer
    servers and storage gear, Hewlett-Packard's imaging
    and printing revenue was up a record 8 percent year-over-year.

    Imaging and printing revenue for the third quarter
    was $5.6 billion. During the quarter, HP shipped 
    almost 10 million printers, bringing total shipments 
    to approximately 320 million units worldwide. Business
    hardware grew 8 percent year-over-year driven by strong
    unit shipments in color and mono lasers, business 
    inkjets and MFPs. Home hardware decreased 5 percent
    with all-in-one unit sales growth offset by declining
    single-function printers and normal seasonality.
    Supplies grew 9 percent fueled by strong growth in 
    color and monochrome laser supplies. Digital imaging
    grew 11 percent as strong digital camera unit shipments
    helped offset an expected decline in the scanner market.
    Imaging and printing operating profit was $837 million
    and also a third quarter record, representing 14.8 
    percent of the company's total revenue.

     
    • Third quarter revenue of $18.9 billion, up 9% year-over-year
