Report: Private Equity Firms Considering HPE Buyout

Investors may buy some of the company's software assets or the entire HPE business.


Citing unnamed "people familiar with the matter," Reuters is reporting that private equity firms are considering buying some of HPE's enterprise software assets, including Autonomy and Vertica, for $6 billion to $8 billion. A separate report in The Information says that equity firms are also considering buying all of HPE for $40 billion. This deal would take the company private, much like Dell recently became a privately held company.

Last year, HP split into two companies: HP, Inc., which sells PCs and printers, and HPE, which offers enterprise IT solutions. These reports only concern the enterprise-focused HPE.

HPE has not commented on the rumors.
