Yesterday, HP Inc. marked its official launch, as Hewlett-Packard split into two companies, HP Enterprise, which will be devoted to enterprise solutions and hardware, and HP Inc., which will be devoted to computing and printing.

Th new HP Inc. – which goes under the stock-exchange designation of HPQ – is now a publicly listed Fortune 100 corporation. It has nearly 50,000 employees and draws from a 76-year history.

HP Inc. says it’ll build on its market leadership in printing and PCs to “make it easier and more enjoyable for customers to print.” HP Inc. will also pursue growth in adjacent markets, such as copiers, graphic-arts printing, and commercial mobility in key vertical markets. Finally, HP Inc. says it will “define future market categories” through its 3D printing and immersive-computing platforms that “fuse together the physical and digital worlds.”

Reuters also reported that on its first day of trading (November 2nd), shares of HP Inc. rose as much as 14.4 percent, while those of Hewlett Packard Enterprise fell as much as 5.8 percent.

“In an ever-changing, connected world, HP Inc. will keep reinventing itself, its technologies and what tomorrow holds, so industries, communities and individuals can keep reinventing how they operate, ideate, and create what matters the most to them,” said Dion Weisler, president and chief executive officer of HP Inc. “We approach this challenge with the heart and energy of a startup coupled with the brain, muscle and determination of a Fortune 100 corporation.

“We intend to amaze through the people we hire, the technology we create, the experiences we enable and the way we treat our customers and each other,” said Weisler. “We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to spark a flame that could change the world forever. We have every intention of seizing this moment and will keep reinventing for generations to come.”
