Accelerates HP Converged Infrastructure strategy and expands company's solutions portfolio for cloud computing and service provider markets
PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 27 -- HP today announced that it has completed the acquisition of 3PAR Inc., a leading global provider of utility storage, for a price of $33 per share in cash, or an enterprise value of $2.35 billion.
3PAR technologies expand HP's storage portfolio into enterprise-class public and private cloud computing environments, which are key growth markets for HP. Complementary with HP's current storage portfolio, 3PAR brings market-differentiating technology to HP that will enable clients to maximize storage utilization, balance workloads and automate storage tiering. This allows clients to improve productivity and more efficiently operate their storage networks.
With a worldwide sales and channel network, coupled with extensive service operations, HP is uniquely positioned to rapidly expand 3PAR's market opportunity. As part of the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio, which integrates servers, storage, networking and management technologies, 3PAR solutions will further strengthen HP's ability to simplify datacenter environments for clients.
Further details on product integration will be announced at a later date.
The acquisition was completed by means of a tender offer by an HP subsidiary for all of the outstanding shares of 3PAR followed by the merger of that purchasing subsidiary with 3PAR, as a result of which 3PAR became a wholly-owned subsidiary of HP. The tender offer expired at midnight, New York City time, on Sept. 24, 2010. As of that time, approximately 55.9 million shares, representing approximately 87.8 percent of 3PAR's outstanding shares, were tendered and not withdrawn in the offer. HP has accepted for payment all tendered shares. HP completed the merger with 3PAR following the exercise of the top-up option contemplated by the merger agreement.
HP creates new possibilities for technology to have a meaningful impact on people, businesses, governments and society. The world's largest technology company, HP brings together a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure to solve customer problems.
