Infotech Lead India: HP’s revenue declined 10 percent to $27.6 billion in Q2 FY 2013 from $30.7 billion in Q2 FY 2012.

HP’s profit decreased 32 percent to $1.1 billion from $1.6 billion.

HP’s all main divisions – excluding networking division — showed negative growth in the second quarter. The company’s networking revenue increased 1 percent.

“We beat the upper end of our non-GAAP diluted EPS outlook for the quarter by $0.05 per share, driven by better than expected performance in Enterprise Services and Printing, coupled with the accelerated capture of restructuring savings and improvement in our operations,” said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer.
