Moody’s Investors Service (“Moody’s”) has completed a periodic review of the ratings of Hewlett-Packard International Bank DAC and other ratings that are associated with the same analytical unit. The review was conducted through a portfolio review in which Moody’s reassessed the appropriateness of the ratings in the context of the relevant principal methodology(ies), recent developments, and a comparison of the financial and operating profile to similarly rated peers. Since 1 January 2019, Moody’s practice has been to issue a press release following each periodic review to announce its completion.

(Bloomberg) — HP Inc. agreed to pay $6 million as part of a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on charges the printer maker violated antifraud law in its effort to boost sales of ink supplies.The technology company misled investors about the impact of sales practices that were meant to help reach revenue and earnings targets in 2015 and 2016, the SEC said Wednesday in a statement. Besides paying the penalty, HP consented to a cease-and-desist order but neither admitted nor denied the SEC’s findings.“We are pleased to have resolved this matter, which involves historical disclosures from nearly five years ago,” an HP spokeswoman said in an email.HP regional managers used incentives to accelerate ink sales that the company had expected to materialize in subsequent quarters, the SEC said. In one region, their tactics included selling printing supplies at significant discounts to resellers known to sell outside of their designated territories, which violated HP’s policy and distributor agreements. The company didn’t disclose uncertainties related to these practices.The company also didn’t fully disclose product inventory among some of its channel partners, which gave investors an incomplete picture of the company’s market performance. The SEC said HP changed its go-to-market model in part to address these undisclosed sales practices and undertook a channel inventory reduction that lowered its net revenue by about $450 million during the third and fourth quarters of 2016.HP’s alleged practices in 2015 and 2016 underscore its long attempt to protect its printing franchise, which provides the lion’s share of the company’s profit. HP has struggled with declining demand for printed pages as the world grows more digital. The company has tried to solidify sales by offering ink subscription services, relying more on corporate customers and making counterfeit ink products incompatible with some of its printers, so that consumers have no choice but to buy genuine HP products.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
