• HP Inc acquires Apogee Corporation Ltd

        • HP Inc. has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Apogee Corporation. The transaction values Apogee as of closing at £380M. 

          This acquisition furthers HP’s plan to disrupt the A3 copier market and builds on its printing strategy to: enhance its A3 and A4 product portfolio; build differentiated solutions and tools to expand its Managed Print Services (MPS); and invest in its direct and indirect go-to-market (GTM) capabilities. This includes the selective acquisition of OEDs that provide access to increased profit pools from higher margin services. 

          Enrique Lores, President, HP Imaging and Print said, “the Apogee acquisition extends HP’s print leadership by boldly leveraging the industry shift to contractual sales as we aggressively pursue the A3 office market. We’re augmenting our go-to-market and enhancing our ability to deliver the services necessary to win in the profitable contractual market. This deal complements our broader channel strategy and HP remains committed to building our business through our best-in-class partner program.” 

          HP has been investing in the A3 business with strategic initiatives including the acquisition of Samsung’s printer business and the launch of a portfolio of superior A3 and A4 multi-function printers based on unique IP and value-added services and solutions. The new transaction expands HP’s services portfolio in contractual office printing and MPS categories, where solutions are increasingly important for small and medium businesses (SMBs). 

          The deal is expected to close by the end of calendar year 2018, pending regulatory review and other customary closing conditions. 

          Following the close, Apogee will operate as an independent subsidiary of HP, with a governing board comprised of HP and Apogee management. Apogee will have the same commercial relationship with HP as any other premium partner with access to the same tools and partner programs.
