HP Takes $8 Billion Writedown on Services Arm

PCWorld: HP has announced that it will write down $8 billion in the third quarter due to weakness in its enterprise services division. The writedown is related to “the impairment of goodwill,” which in the financial world refers to intangible assets, including brand value.

As part of the same announcement, HP said that Mike Nefkens, senior vice president and general manager of Enterprise Services EMEA, will now lead the entire enterprise services division. He will replace John Vistenin, who joined the team during former CEO Leo Apotheker’s tenure.
