Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On October 10, 2016, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of HP Inc.

As part of the plan, HP expects approximately 3,000 to 4,000 employees to exit between fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2019.

In connection with the plan, HP anticipates incurring approximately $350 million to $500 million in restructuring and other charges due to both labor and non-labor actions. Of these amounts, HP expects to incur approximately $200 million in labor costs related to workforce reductions.
