Funding Commitments

        In fiscal 2010, we expect to contribute approximately $820 million to our pension and post-retirement plan funding. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we meet at least the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government, funding and taxing authorities. Funding for the years following 2010 would be based on the then current market conditions, actuarial estimates and plan funding status. See Note 16 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 8, which is incorporated herein by reference, for additional information on pension activity.

        As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures of approximately $1.9 billion. We expect to make cash payments of approximately $1.1 billion in fiscal 2010 and the majority of the remaining amount through 2012. See Note 8 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 8, which is incorporated herein by reference, for additional information on restructuring activities.

Funding Commitments

        We previously disclosed in our Consolidated Financial Statements for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2008 that we expected to contribute approximately $360 million to our non-U.S. pension plans and approximately $35 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants in fiscal 2009. We also noted that we expected to pay approximately $70 million to cover benefit claims for our post-retirement benefit plans. As of April 30, 2009, we have made approximately $319 million of contributions to non-U.S. pension plans, paid $20 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants, and paid $20 million to cover benefit claims under post-retirement benefit plans. We presently anticipate making additional contributions of approximately $115 million to our non-U.S. pension plans and approximately $10 million to our U.S. non-qualified plan participants and expect to pay up to $35 million to cover benefit claims under post-retirement benefit plans during the remainder of fiscal 2009. Our pension and other post-retirement benefit costs and obligations are dependent on various assumptions. Differences between expected and actual returns on investments will be reflected as unrecognized gains or losses, and such gains or losses will be amortized and recorded in future periods. Poor financial performance of asset markets in any year could lead to increased contributions in certain countries and increased future pension plan expense. Asset gains or losses are determined at the measurement date and amortized over the remaining service life or life expectancy of plan participants. Our next expected measurement date is October 31, 2009. At this time, it is not possible for us to accurately predict the future movements in the capital markets or the related plan funding requirements, both of which will impact future pension expense. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we meet at least the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government and funding and taxing authorities. We expect to use contributions made to the post-retirement benefit plans primarily for the payment of retiree health claims incurred during the fiscal year.

        As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures associated with the plans to be approximately $2.2 billion. We expect to make cash payments of approximately $1.4 billion within one year and the majority of the remaining amount through 2012. In addition, we continue to evaluate our businesses and current market conditions and we may incur additional cash flow expenditures for future restructuring actions.

We presently anticipate making additional contributions of approximately $235 million to our non U.S. pension plans and approximately $20 million to our U.S. non-qualified plan participants and expect to pay up to $55 million to cover benefit claims under post-retirement benefit plans during the remainder of fiscal 2009.

Funding Commitments

        During fiscal 2008, we made approximately $170 million of contributions to non-U.S. pension plans, paid $6 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants, and paid $50 million to cover benefit claims under post-retirement benefit plans. In addition, we used $25 million of cash to fund the distribution and subsequent transfer of accrued pension benefits from the U.S. Excess Benefit Plan to the U.S. Executive Deferred Compensation Plan for the terminated vested plan participants. In fiscal 2009, we expect to contribute approximately $360 million to our pension plans and approximately $35 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants. We also expect to pay approximately $70 million to cover benefit claims for our post-retirement benefit plans in fiscal 2009. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we meet at least the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government, funding and taxing authorities. We expect to use contributions made to the post-retirement benefit plans primarily for the payment of retiree health claims incurred during the fiscal year.

        We will make a significant cash payment associated with our fiscal 2008 bonus programs. We have implemented bonus programs that are designed to reward our employees upon achievement of annual performance objectives. We calculate bonuses based on a formula, with performance relative to targets, year over year improvements and market conditions that are set at the beginning of each fiscal year. Our Board of Directors approves the final bonus payments. We accrued and expensed this bonus, as it was earned, throughout fiscal 2008.

        In connection with the acquisition of EDS, we implemented a restructuring program to streamline our services business and to better align the structure and efficiency of that business with the operating model that we have successfully implemented in recent years. The restructuring program will be implemented over the next four years and will include changes to our workforce as well as cost savings from corporate overhead functions, such as real estate, IT and procurement. As part of the restructuring program, we expect to eliminate approximately 24,700 positions, with nearly half of the eliminations occurring in the United States. As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures of approximately $2.1 billion. We expect to make cash payments of approximately $1.3 billion in fiscal 2009 and the majority of the remaining amount through 2012.

        In fiscal 2007, we outperformed against our targets, which will result in a significant bonus payout during the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and a corresponding reduction of cash flow from operations in that quarter. We accrued and expensed this bonus, as it was earned, throughout fiscal 2007.

        As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures of $173 million, which we recorded on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at October 31, 2007.

        During fiscal 2006, we made approximately $270 million and $31 million of contributions to our pension plans and U.S. non-qualified plan participants, respectively, and paid $67 million to cover benefit claims for post-retirement benefit plans. In fiscal 2007, we expect to contribute approximately $120 million to our pension plans and approximately $15 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants. We expect to pay approximately $80 million to cover benefit claims for our post-retirement benefit plans. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we meet at least the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government and

66



funding and taxing authorities. We expect to use contributions made to the post-retirement plans primarily for the payment of retiree health claims incurred during the fiscal year.

        We will make a significant cash payment associated with our fiscal 2006 bonus programs. The bonus programs are designed to reward our employees upon achievement of annual performance objectives. Bonuses are calculated based on a formula, with targets that are set at the beginning of each fiscal year. Both the formula and the targets are approved by our Board of Directors.

        In fiscal 2006, we substantially outperformed against our targets which will result in a bonus payout during the first quarter of fiscal 2007 that will be significantly larger than prior years, resulting in a corresponding reduction in cash flow from operations in that quarter. This bonus was accrued and expensed, as earned, throughout fiscal 2006.

        Also reducing our cash flow from operation in fiscal 2007 will be significant payments associated with our restructuring plans. As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures of approximately $640 million. The majority of this amount is recorded on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at October 31, 2006. We expect to make cash payments of approximately $549 million in fiscal 2007 and the remaining amount of approximately $91 million over the next five fiscal years.

In fiscal 2006, HP expects to contribute approximately $245 million to its pension plans and approximately $40 million to cover benefit payments to U.S. non-qualified plan participants. HP expects to pay approximately $80 million to cover benefit claims for HP's post-retirement benefit plans. HP's funding policy is to contribute cash to HP's pension plans so that HP meets at least the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government and funding and taxing authorities. HP expects to use contributions made to the post-retirement plans primarily for the payment of retiree health claims incurred during the fiscal year.

        We expect to make significant cash outlays associated with the company's bonus and restructuring plans during fiscal 2006. As a result of our approved restructuring plans, we expect future cash expenditures of approximately $1.2 billion, exclusive of approximately $400 million that will be funded through the pension plan assets for the costs associated with the early retirement of 3,200 U.S. employees, primarily for employee severance and other employee benefits and facilities costs. Of this amount, we recorded $1.19 billion on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at October 31, 2005, and we intend to expense $30 million in future periods as we incur the costs or we meet the requirements to record the costs as a liability. We expect to make cash payments of approximately $1.0 billion in fiscal 2006 and approximately $200 million over the next five fiscal years.

Funding commitments

        We previously disclosed in our Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended October 31, 2004 that we expect to contribute approximately $850 million to our pension plans and $60 million to our post-retirement plans during fiscal 2005. As of July 31, 2005, we have made contributions of approximately $810 million and $45 million to pension plans and post-retirement plans, respectively. HP presently anticipates making additional contributions of between $650 million and $950 million to our pension plans and $15 million to our postretirement plans during the remainder of fiscal 2005. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we at least meet the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government funding and taxing authorities. In the current fiscal year, we will continue to contribute cash to our global pension plans in amounts that are consistent with local funding requirements and tax considerations.

        In connection with our March 2002 acquisition of Indigo, HP issued approximately 53 million non-transferable contingent value rights ("CVRs") that entitle each holder to a one-time contingent cash payment of up to $4.50 per CVR, based on the achievement of certain cumulative revenue results over a three-year period that ended on March 31, 2005. We have not incurred a liability associated with the CVRs as of July 31, 2005, and, based on our estimate of such revenue results, we do not expect any material payments in the future.

Funding commitments

        We estimate that we will contribute a total of approximately $910 million to the pension and post-retirement plans during fiscal 2005, of which we have already funded $815 million in the six months ended April 30, 2005. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we at least meet the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government funding and taxing authorities. In the current fiscal year, we will continue to contribute cash to our global pension plans in amounts that are consistent with local funding requirements and tax considerations.

Funding commitments

        We estimate that we will contribute a total of approximately $920 million to the pension and post-retirement plans during fiscal 2005, of which we have already funded $555 million in the three months ended January 31, 2005. Our funding policy is to contribute cash to our pension plans so that we meet the minimum contribution requirements, as established by local government funding and taxing authorities. In the current fiscal year, we will continue to contribute cash to our global pension plans in amounts that are consistent with local funding requirements and tax considerations.

The future cash pay-out, if any, of the CVRs will be payable after a three-year period that began on April 1, 2002 and could result in a maximum obligation of $237 million. We have not incurred a liability associated with CVRs as of January 31, 2005, and we do not expect any material cash payments in the future.
