<p>HP Expands Relationship with Procter &amp; Gamble; Announces New Finance and Administration Business Process Outsourcing Deal</p>
<p>Agreement builds on $3 billion global IT outsourcing contract signed in 2003
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 17, 2004 HP and The Procter &amp; Gamble Company (P&amp;G) today announced an agreement in principle to transition P&amp;G's corporate-wide transactional accounts payable operations to HP Services in order to improve productivity and make the company more adaptive.</p>
<p>The deal, expected by HP and P&amp;G to be signed in April 2004, would expand upon the companies' existing $3 billion, 10 year information technology outsourcing contract signed in 2003. P&amp;G selected HP after a comprehensive and competitive process that included major business process outsourcing (BPO) and IT service providers.</p>
<p>"Our existing alliance and HP's proven ability to innovate makes them a strong fit and an ideal partner for our accounts payable services," said Filippo Passerini, Global Business Services Officer, Procter &amp; Gamble.</p>
<p>"During the past ten months of our partnership, HP has exhibited a deep understanding of our business, culture and values. Its own business operations are similar in scope and scale, and we are confident that HP can effectively leverage its own experience to help P&amp;G innovate and drive value for consumers and shareholders.</p>
<p>"In this strategic expansion of our collaboration with P&amp;G, we will help enhance P&amp;G's financial business services, helping link business processes and applications across its suppliers," said Ann Livermore, Executive Vice President, HP Services.
"This deal builds on our more than 250 managed services wins in the past 20 months, including most recently, the Bank of Ireland, Bank of India and China Development Bank deals."</p>
<p>HP also announced that Marc Schwarz, formerly the director of global outsourcing of Deloitte Consulting, will lead its new BPO finance and administration (F&amp;A) function. HP has extensive F&amp;A capabilities and can process more than 4 million invoices per year for its own outsourced finance and administration function. Under Schwarz' leadership, the BPO team will target business opportunities in the growing F&amp;A segment within the BPO industry. HP plans to continue working with its system integrator partners in BPO areas outside of finance and administration.</p>
