– To slash up to 12% of its workforce (4,000 to 6,000) with sharp slump in demand for personal computers.
– Aims to achieve $1.4 billion in annualized cost savings.
– About $1 billion in upfront costs
“We think that at this point it’s prudent not to assume that the market will turn during 2023,” Chief Executive Enrique Lores said in an interview.
HP announced the layoffs as it reported an 11.2% drop in quarterly revenue to $14.8 billion. The company also posted a small net loss for the period, largely reflecting costs from a legal settlement.

“We expect ongoing global macroeconomic factors, including slowing economic growth, inflation, rising interest rates and currency pressure, to weigh on our customers,” he said.
The results come a month after data showed that PC demand in October slid at its fastest pace in more than two decades.
