16:24 EDTCSCCSC says separation into two companies will not require shareholder vote
Computer Sciences Corporation announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate the company into two publicly traded, pure-play leaders: one to serve commercial and government clients globally and one to serve public sector clients in the U.S. The separation is intended to qualify as a tax-free transaction to CSC shareholders. Immediately following the separation, which is expected to be completed by the end of October 2015, CSC shareholders will own shares of both CSC – Global Commercial and CSC – U.S. Public Sector. Completion of the separation will not require a shareholder vote but will be subject to customary conditions, including final approval of the CSC Board of Directors, the receipt of a favorable opinion from counsel with respect to the tax-free nature of the transaction, and the effectiveness of a Form 10 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
16:21 EDTCSCCSC plans to seperate into two companies, to pay $10.50 per share cash dividend
Computer Sciences Corporation announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate the company into two publicly traded, pure-play leaders: one to serve commercial and government clients globally and one to serve public sector clients in the U.S. Concurrent with the separation, CSC intends to pay a special cash dividend to shareholders of $10.50 per share at closing, which is expected by October 2015. “CSC began its turnaround three years go,” said CEO Mike Lawrie. “That turnaround has progressed strongly, and our focus now turns to positioning the business for long-term growth and leadership. The best way to accelerate that transformation is by separating the company into two businesses, each uniquely positioned to lead its market by focusing strongly on the needs of its clients.”

06:36 EDTHPQHP sued by MicroTech for $16.5M for 'unfairly taking advantage'
In a lawsuit filed Monday with the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, Virginia technology company MicroTech accuses Hewlett Packard and the software maker it now owns, Autonomy, of unfairly taking advantage by refusing to return $16.5M in cash paid to Autonomy for software never delivered in a fashion where it could be re-sold. During a national telephonic press conference, Lanny J. Davis, a Washington, D.C. attorney advising MicroTech, described the core allegation in the breach of contract case filed against HP: "Regardless of whether HP was defrauded by Autonomy, or whether HP's over-payment for Autonomy was a product of a possible due diligence failure, in my opinion, HP is not entitled to keep both MicroTech's money AND Autonomy's software that MicroTech duly purchased," Davis said.

14:49 EDTCSCCSC break-up would be logical step, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo said a separation of Computer Sciences' government and commercial business units, as Reuters reported that the company plans to announce, would be a logical step for the company's "investor friendly" management to take. However, the firm believes CSC is still challenged to grow in both arms of the business and keeps a Market Perform rating on the stock.

06:15 EDTHPQHP Q2 sales weakness largely expected, says Citigroup
Citigroup believes HP's Q2 revenue on May 21 could miss the consensus expectation of $25.8B due to PC weakness and currency pressure. Citi thinks sales weakness is largely expected, however. The firm says HP shares "will start to work again" as management will likely address and quantify the additional costs of operating as two separate companies. Uncertainty around the size of the dis-synergy costs has been a key factor behind the stock's recent underperformance, Citi believes. It keeps a Buy rating on HP with a $41 price target.
