SAN FRANCISCO — Hewlett-Packard’s net income jumped 6 percent and its revenue climbed 11 percent in HP’s last full quarter under now-ousted chief executive Mark Hurd.
The numbers, reported yesterday, squared with preliminary results that Hewlett-Packard Co. revealed Aug. 6, when it announced Hurd’s abrupt resignation.
In his five years at the company, Hurd aggressively cut jobs and other costs and orchestrated a broad push beyond personal computers and printers.
Net income was $1.77 billion, or 75 cents per share, compared with $1.67 billion, or 69 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding certain items, HP would have earned $1.08 per share. That was in line with analysts’ forecasts.
Revenue was $30.7 billion, up from $27.6 billion a year before. Analysts expected $30.4 billion.
