PALO ALTO, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 20, 2008— HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2008, with net revenue of $28.3 billion, up 11% from a year earlier and up 5% when adjusted for the effects of currency.

In the second quarter, GAAP operating profit was $2.6 billion and GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.80, up from $0.65 in the prior-year period.
