Mergers: Xerox wants to buy HP, kind of
  • Xerox Holdings Corp. has set its sights on a takeover of personal-computer and printer maker HP Inc., an audacious move that would unite two fading stars of technology.

    Xerox is considering making a cash-and-stock offer for HP, which has a market value of about $27 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. The copier maker’s board discussed the possibility Tuesday, the people said.

    With a valuation of $27 billion, HP is worth more than 3x Xerox.

    After a recent change at the top ranks, HP said earlier this month that it would implement a restructuring plan that would shrink the company's workforce by 9,000. Merger can triple or even quadruple this number.
