Enterprise technology giant Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has reported a $1.5 million loss in New Zealand for the year ended 31 October 2018.

That follows a $3.4 million profit in 2017, which was boosted by $10.1 million of non-sales income from the sale of the company's Enterprise Services business.

Sales for the year fell from $129.9 million in 2017 to $120.3 million while cost of sales rose slightly from $101 million to $102 million.

Wages and salaries paid in 2018 fell significantly from 2017, from $22.2 million to $13.9 million, most likely mainly due to the sale of parts of the business during 2017.

However, Reseller News did report up to 18 redundancies from HPE itself during the year due to the disestablishment of its consulting division.

On 1 December 2016 HPE NZ sold its Enterprise Services division for $5.4 million as part of its global separation into what would become DXC Technology, but that businesses continued to trade as part of the HPE NZ group until 31 March 2017.

That followed the sale of the New Zealand part of company's software division, on 1 June 2016, for $1.4 million. That sale generated a gain on disposal of $4.4 million.

The software division continued to trade as part of HPE NZ until 31 August 2017.

HPE declined to comment.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
