           Monetary Situation and Outcomes of Operations (Continued)
In October 2019, we introduced cost-reduction and operational effectivity
initiatives supposed to simplify the best way we work, transfer nearer to our prospects
and facilitate particular funding in our enterprise. These had been additional up to date
in February 2020. These efforts included reworking our working mannequin to
combine our gross sales pressure right into a single business group and lowering
structural prices throughout the Firm by means of our restructuring plan permitted in
September 2019 (the "Fiscal 2020 Plan"). We now have invested and anticipate to take a position
a number of the financial savings from these efforts throughout our companies, together with
investing to construct our digital capabilities. Over time, we anticipate these
investments will make us extra environment friendly and permit us to advance our positions in
Private Methods and Printing, whereas additionally disrupting new industries the place we see
engaging medium to long-term development alternatives. Nevertheless, the speed at which
we're capable of put money into our enterprise and the returns that we're capable of
obtain from these investments might be affected by many elements, together with the
efforts to deal with the execution, {industry} and macroeconomic challenges going through
our enterprise as mentioned above. In consequence, we could expertise delays within the
anticipated timing of actions associated to those efforts, and the anticipated
advantages of those efforts could not materialize.
Within the second 12 months of our program, we proceed to have a look at new price financial savings
alternatives and stay forward of our $1.2 billion gross run fee structural
price discount plan. Within the third quarter of fiscal 2021, we accomplished the
preliminary deployment of our SAP S/4 HANA system, one of many largest ERP
implementations. Additionally, as a part of our end-to-end enterprise planning and
forecasting efforts, we went stay with our new cloud-based platform which we
imagine will enhance our forecasting agility as a part of our digital

our location technique whereas offering a extra versatile workspace. Going ahead
we're enabling HP's hybrid work technique by modernizing our websites to be

We sometimes expertise increased web revenues in our fourth quarter in comparison with
different quarters in our fiscal 12 months due partly to seasonal vacation demand.

often to assessment the newest information from our enterprise and web site leaders, establish
and handle rising dangers, and formulate response to actions taken by
governments and public coverage organizations. We now have put in place international
insurance policies and protocols primarily based on steerage from healthcare consultants and public
well being leaders, and we often assessment and replace them to replicate present
info and the necessities and proposals of nationwide, federal,
state, and native authorities. We steadiness our company-wide strategy by assessing
threat and adjusting our response on the web site degree, bearing in mind
every nation's or space's COVID-19 case developments and associated measures.
The enterprise influence of the COVID-19 pandemic has created new and completely different
demand dynamics available in the market. We now have seen a better mixture of Client PCs and
shift from Desktops to Notebooks. Our Private Methods enterprise benefited from
the distant working and studying atmosphere, together with development in gaming. In
Printing, now we have seen ongoing demand for Client print, and a few enchancment
in Industrial print because the demand within the SMBs and enterprise segments proceed
to enhance. Ongoing client demand could also be impacted as we slowly begin to see
business restoration. Nevertheless, the restoration in Industrial print could also be uneven
given the various tempo of financial restoration and the resurgence of COVID-19 case
charges largely pushed by the newer variants in some international locations. Additionally, favorable
pricing together with traditionally decrease promotions and incentives has contributed
positively in the direction of common promoting costs ("ASPs") and gross margin in each
Private Methods and Printing. We estimate gross sales and advertising program
incentives primarily based on quite a lot of elements like historic expertise, anticipated
buyer habits and market situations. These estimates have been and will
proceed to be impacted by lower-than-expected incentives because of elevated
provide constraints, shifts in buyer habits and the evolving influence of the
COVID-19 pandemic. Demand success has been and is predicted to proceed to be
impacted by {industry} large commodity constraints primarily built-in circuits
and panels, and manufacturing disruptions in Asia. Additionally, we proceed to see
logistics challenges globally.
Because the COVID-19 pandemic continues and new variants of the virus, together with the
Delta and Lambda variants, emerge, we're seeing a resurgence of the pandemic in
key markets. We now have and will expertise future disruptions in provide,
manufacturing and logistics, together with in Asia, and with our suppliers and
outsourcing companions. The total extent of the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on
our enterprise, outcomes of operations, money flows and monetary place will
depend upon many elements that aren't inside our management, together with, however not
restricted to: the severity, length and scope of the pandemic, together with the

forex fluctuations, we complement the year-over-year proportion change in web
income with the year-over-year proportion change in web income on a relentless
forex foundation, which excludes the impact of overseas forex alternate
fluctuations calculated by translating present interval revenues utilizing month-to-month
common alternate charges from the comparative interval and excluding any hedging
influence acknowledged within the present interval, and doesn't alter for any repricing
or demand impacts from modifications in overseas forex alternate charges. This
info is supplied in order that web income might be considered with and with out the
impact of fluctuations in overseas forex alternate charges, which is constant
with how administration evaluates our web income outcomes and developments, as administration
doesn't imagine that the excluded gadgets are reflective of ongoing working

           Monetary Situation and Outcomes of Operations (Continued)

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
We use money generated by operations as our major supply of liquidity. Whereas
the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic had been initially anticipated to be momentary,
the length and influence of the pandemic stays unclear. With the emergence of
variants, there stays uncertainty across the extent and length of the
pandemic and the way our liquidity and dealing capital wants could also be impacted within the
future intervals because of this. We imagine that present money, money circulation from
working actions, new borrowings, obtainable business paper authorization
and the credit score amenities might be ample to satisfy HP's working money
necessities, deliberate capital expenditures, curiosity and principal funds on
all borrowings, pension and post-retirement funding necessities, approved
share repurchases and annual dividend funds for the foreseeable future.
Moreover, if appropriate acquisition alternatives come up, the Firm could
receive all or a portion of the required financing by means of extra borrowings.
Whereas our entry to capital markets could also be constrained and our price of borrowing
could improve below sure enterprise, market and financial situations, our entry
to quite a lot of funding sources to satisfy our liquidity wants is designed to
facilitate continued entry to capital sources below all such situations. Our
liquidity is topic to varied dangers together with the dangers recognized within the
part entitled "Danger Elements" in Merchandise 1A of Half I in our Annual Report on
Kind 10-Ok for the fiscal 12 months ended October 31, 2020 and the market dangers
recognized within the part entitled "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures
about Market Danger" in Merchandise 3 of Half I of this report.
Through the 9 months ended July 31, 2021, HP accomplished three acquisitions with
a mixed buy value of $582 million, web of money acquired, of which $217
million was recorded as goodwill and $288 million as intangible property associated
to those acquisitions.
On July 27, 2021, we introduced a definitive settlement to amass Teradici
Company, a world innovator in distant computing software program that allows customers
to securely entry high-performance computing from any PC, Chromebook, or
pill, for $275 million, topic to customary working capital and different
changes. The transaction is predicted to shut within the fourth quarter of
calendar 2021, pending regulatory assessment and different customary closing situations.
Our money and money equivalents balances are held in quite a few areas all through
the world. We make the most of quite a lot of planning and financing methods in an
effort to make sure that our worldwide money is offered when and the place it's
wanted. Quantities held outdoors of america are usually utilized to
assist non-U.S. liquidity wants and will infrequently be distributed to the
United States. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA") made important modifications to
the U.S. tax regulation, together with a one-time transition tax on amassed overseas
earnings. The funds related to this one-time transition tax might be paid
over eight years and commenced in fiscal 12 months 2019. We anticipate a good portion
of the money and money equivalents held by our overseas subsidiaries will now not
be topic to U.S. earnings tax penalties upon a subsequent repatriation to the
United States on account of the transition tax on amassed overseas earnings.
Nevertheless, a portion of this money should be topic to overseas earnings tax or
withholding tax penalties upon repatriation. As we consider the long run money
wants of our operations, we could revise the quantity of overseas earnings thought of
to be completely reinvested in our overseas subsidiaries and easy methods to make the most of such
funds, together with lowering our gross debt degree, or different makes use of.
