HPAA member advice:
If you bought CPQ shares under the Compaq employee stock purchase plan, those shares were automatically converted to HPQ shares at the time of the merger. Unless you have sold or transferred them, the shares (and your corresponding new Hewlett Packard Enterprise shares) are being held by the last administrator of the plan, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney -- which is no longer being paid for this work.

Selling HPQ shares online is still possible at  https://www.stockplanconnect.com . However, selling HPE shares can only be done by calling 1-800-367-4777 or 1-801-617-7414.

To transfer your HPQ shares (and your corresponding new HPE shares) to another financial institution at no charge, you can either:

- Go to https://www.stockplanconnect.com and download the stock transfer forms for faxing to Morgan Stanley -- or

- Send an email to hpoptions@mssb.com  -- you will immediately receive a "deleted without reading" autoreply and, later, a personal reply with instructions and forms.

Postal address: Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, 411 Borel Avenue Suite 220, San Mateo, CA 94089.

HPAA member advice:  HP paid $25.00 per share in cash. You should have received a check at the time. Either that -- or the money would have been turned over by now to the unclaimed property department of the state for the last address they had for you. It is a good idea anyhow to search for unclaimed property annually on the official site of the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators: http://www.naupa.org
