"In an interview, Ann M. Livermore, an executive vice president
of H.P., described computer networking as a $40 billion-a-year
market with high profit margins that is growing briskly and
dominated by Cisco, which has so far had little head-to-head
""H.P. is eager and now positioned to disrupt the networking
industry," Ms. Livermore said.
"The offer price, $7.90 a share, is at a premium of about 39
percent to 3Com's closing price on Wednesday. The deal was
announced after the market closed."
