Fortune article summarizing breakup of Hewlett-Packard into HP Inc, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, DXC, and Micro Focus.

The HP breakup stock deals were generally structured so that there was no taxable gain to shareholders. (With a cash payment for the leftover fraction of one share.)

Some of the deals were structured as cash payouts instead of stock -- which generated a taxable gain or loss for that year.
