Hewlett Packard Enterprise was established on November 1, 2015 as part of the separation with the traditional Hewlett-Packard company. HPE took the Enterprise Group, which works in servers, storage, networking, consulting and support; Services; Software; and Financial Services, while HP kept the consumer divisions, including personal computers and printers, and the stock ticker symbol HPQ. Interestingly, CEO Meg Whitman led the newly-formed HPE while remaining Chairman of the Board at Hewlett-Packard.
HPE continues to reinvent itself, not content to remain static after the spin-off and rebrand. In May 2016, the company announced it would sell its Enterprise Services division to one of its competitors, Computer Sciences Corporation in a deal valued at $8.5 billion. Then on September 7, 2016, HPE announced a "spin-merge" with Micro Focus, where Micro Focus would acquire its "non-core" software, and HPE shareholders would own 50.1 percent of the merged company, which would retain its current name. This was a very creative way to streamline the core brand, as Whitman described in the official statement. "With today's announcement, we are taking another important step in achieving the vision of creating a faster-growing, higher-margin, stronger cash flow company well positioned for our customers and for the future."
