HP completes acquisition of Samsung Electronics’ printer business

The combination with Samsung expands HP’s portfolio, accelerates its ability to disrupt the $55B A3 copier segment with multifunction printing technology, and strengthens its A4 laser printing business.

HP Inc. announced the completion of its acquisition of Samsung Electronics’ printer business in a deal valued at $1.05 billion. A3 represents HP’s largest growth opportunity in business printing. The combination with Samsung expands HP’s portfolio, accelerates its ability to disrupt the $55B A3 copier segment with multifunction printing technology, and strengthens its A4 laser printing business.

Samsung also brings intellectual property of more than 6,500 print patents and a workforce of nearly 1,300 researchers and engineers with expertise in laser technology, imaging electronics and supplies and accessories.

“As we ignite a renaissance in printing, we’re thrilled to bring together the industry’s best and brightest talent,” said Dion Weisler, president and CEO, HP Inc. “Together, we will build on more than 30 years of print leadership to accelerate our strategy, disrupt new market opportunities, and provide our customers and partners with unique and highly innovative print solutions.”

With Samsung, HP now offers A3 multifunction printers. The portfolio, including PageWide technologies, offers opportunities to grow managed print and document services as sales models shift from transactional to contractual. The combined portfolio also features security, such as HP Connection Inspector, HP Sure Start, Run-time intrusion detection and whitelisting.

HP will provide more financial guidance on its Q4 2017 earnings call. As part of the agreement, Samsung will be making a $100 million to $300 million equity investment in HP through open market purchases.
