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.[1] As of 2010, HP is the largest technology company in the world in terms of revenue,[2] currently ranking 26 in the Fortune Global 500.[3]

As of 2008, Hewlett-Packard has made a total of 116 acquisitions since 1986.[a][4] 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.[5] In 1989, HP purchased Apollo Computer for US$476 million,[6][7] enabling HP to become the largest supplier of computer workstations.[6] In 1995, the company bought another computer manufacturer Convex Computer for US$150 million.[8] In 2000, HP spun off its measurement, chemical and medical businesses into an independent company named Agilent Technologies.[9][10] The company's largest acquisition came in 2002, when it merged with Compaq, a personal computer manufacturer, for US$25 billion.[11][12] The combined company overtook Dell for the largest share of the personal computer market worldwide in the second quarter.[13]

Since then, stream of acquisitions strengthened HP position in the software business.[14] The largest software company purchased during this time was Mercury Interactive for US$4.5 billion. This acquisition doubled the size of HP’s software business by US$2 billion in annual revenue.[15] The majority of companies acquired by HP are based in the United States.
