Tomahawk, WI 11/07/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) has lost a great deal in terms of sales. Its financial results have been messed up due to the drop in sales. The reason for this is that PC sales have dropped worldwide, and yet HPQ depends on this product a great deal for revenue collection. The company has struck a 5-year deal worth $3.5 billion with the U.S navy, and this news has solicited a lot of excitement towards HPQ from different quarters. Added to that is the fact that HPQ is about to make an investment in Greece, and this has serious financial gains as well.

HPQ’s Greece Plans Good for Business

A company of HPQ’s caliber ought to be profitable and one that collects huge amounts of revenue. The deal in Greece is an interesting one bearing in mind the negative news coming out of that country in the last few years. Greece is facing serious financial crisis, and the EU has tried many times to bail it out without much success. One would expect HPQ to keep off such an economy since it stands to lose a lot of money by investing in Greece. This Greece deal is not a short-term project but one with long-term outlook for HPQ. How risky is the deal for HPQ?

The Greece deal that HPQ has entered into has great potential for the company’s Printing and Personal Business Group division, which is responsible for around 16% of all the world’s PCs, in addition to more than 50% of the world’s printing solutions. The Greece deal allows HPQ to cut down its airfreight costs massively. As long as HPQ succeeds in cutting down costs associated with items such as transportation, it stands a very good chance of enjoying better financial results, increased sales and revenues, and the outcome could be more profits for the firm.

HPQW Focused on Eco-Friendly Practices

HPQ does not operate in solitude. It is part of the global family comprising many companies with a worldwide reach. It has to pay attention to the impact its services and products have on the environment. When the company switched its transportation from airfreight to railroads, it reduced its carbon footprint by as much as 30%. The reduction of carbon footprint is at 57% since HPQ opted to shift its mode of transportation to cargo ships. Consequently, it stands to gain since it plays a part in ensuring that the global economy does not suffer adverse weather effects.

HPQ will benefit from investing in its operations in Greece. A large Chinese company already operates in Piraeus, Greece. It has identified this part of the world as the gateway to the rest of Eastern Europe. The infrastructure is already in place for HPQ to operate in Eastern Europe through its Greece operations. HPQ could just pull it off in Eastern Europe and enjoy lower costs of production that will positively affect its financials. The company’s revenues from Europe, Africa, and Middle East in the last quarter were $10 billion, but this could increase substantially.

HPQ’s latest decisions are laudable since they carry untapped potential that could just kick-start the company’s goals of declaring profits in a consistent basis.
