1a. Perspecta spinoff    

Part of our step-by-step Stock Recovery process to findit, protect it, and help you avoid double taxation. If you haven't gone through the previous steps, start here:   Employee Stock

If you owned DXC shares on May 25, 2018, you have been issued shares in a new company called "Perspecta" -- with corresponding adjustment in value of your DXC shares. (This is not reflected in the HPAA's stock spreadsheets.) Stock details - 5/7/18 and SEC filing

Perspecta is a new company -- spinning off the 6,500-employee U.S. Public Sector Business of DXC and merging it with 3,800-employee intelligence community contractor Vencore and 3,700-employee background investigation firm KeyPoint.

As detailed in the table below, the sequence is: 1. HP bought EDS. 2. HP spun off HPE. 3. The HPE spin/merge with CSC created DXC. 4. The DXC spin/merge with Vencore and KeyPoint created Perspecta.


Time to untangle your stock! With any employer, no one but you really cares about your employment-related stock. Due to the HP Breakup, you may have stock in up to seven HP-related companies. It may not all be held in the same place. With each spinoff, the cost basis for your shares changed. Many find stray accounts -- or need to retrieve stock or dividends turned over to a state as "unclaimed." You could pay taxes twice on the same income. Your heirs may not find it all. An HP Alumni team developed a step-by-step process to find it, protect it, and help you avoid double taxation. Go to Employee Stock

"...you will not recognize income, gain or loss as a result..."  DXC/Perspecta tax basis letter 

Your broker may have used a different formula than the one suggested in the Cost Basis letter provided by the company -- resulting in a somewhat different value. Check your brokerage account online -- or by examining a recent account statement -- to view your holdings in each stock going forward.

Unexpired HPE options: If you had unexpired HPE stock options and were transitioned to DXC, the HPE options in your Merrill Lynch account may have vanished in April 2017 -- with no notification. The HPE options were converted to DXC options and placed in a new Fidelity account. Presumably, something similar will be done for people transferred to Perspecta.

Fidelity: :If you have an existing HP 401(k) or personal brokerage account at Fidelity, go to http://netbenefits.com and use your existing username and password.
