On Nov 1, 2015, the legal name of the Hewlett-Packard Company was changed to HP Inc. and a new, completely separate company -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (no hyphen; green-rectangle logo) -- was spun out. Portions of HPE were later spun out into DXC and Micro Focus, which have spun out other companies.
Our HP Breakup Timeline shows each event as HP spawned Agilent, Philips Healthcare, Lumileds, Keysight, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HPInc, DXC Technology, Micro Focus, and others. Each is a completely separate company. hpalumni.org/hptimeline

Time to untangle your stock! Depending on when and how you acquired HP or HPE stock, you may now have stock in up to six completely separate HP-related companies in various accounts -- or have missed cash payouts.

Responsibility for commitments to former employees of Compaq, DEC, EDS, etc. remain with HP Inc. -- regardless of whether the employee's last business unit ended up in HP or HPE. Includes employment verification and any retiree health, pension, etc. plans.
