"** purely made up by myself, have no knowledge of any actual figures. For illustrative purposes only."

Based on 2010 figures:

Assets (excluding goodwill): US$1.9bn

Goodwill: US$1.3bn

Liabilities: US$1.2bn

Annual revenue: US$870m

Annual profit: US$376m

So assets + 10 x profit gives around US$6bn. Add another US$1bn for growth in 2011 and you are in in the ball park of their market cap, although analysts believed they were over valued. Obviously not the analysts that HP used...
