12 January 2004 – New York (NY): Hewlett-Packard (HP) is one of six companies trading on the NYSE who are to list on the Nasdaq as well under a new dual listing programme.
HP CFO Bob Wayman said: “We have a strong and mutually beneficial partnership with the New York Stock Exchange. They continue to do a great job. Today’s announcement is about providing more choice to investors.”
