0 comments

The world's biggest computer company, the $104-billion Hewlett-Packard (HP) keeps getting bigger, posting another double-digit increase in earnings for its latest quarter.

The company says that it's latest quarterly increase is due mainly to its strength in overseas markets which accounted for about 70% of its total revenues.
Revenue for the quarter was up 11% on the same period last year to $28,3-billion, with net profit rising to $2,1-billion from $1,8-billion.
HP says revenues from emerging markets such as Brazil, China, Russia and India continue to grow strongly – with an average increase of 26% over the same period last year.
