HP has reported net revenue of US$30.7 billion - up 11.4% - for its third fiscal quarter ending July 31th, 2010.

Speaking about the financials, Cathie Lesjak, HP’s interim CEO following Hurd’s resignation, said, “The broad-based strength of HP's Q3 performance further demonstrates the power of our strategy and the discipline of our execution. We raised our full-year outlook and are continuing to build momentum in driving out costs, investing for profitable growth and capitalizing on HP's competitive advantages in the marketplace."
