HP to, like, totally buy Exstream Software

Will sign a few papers then hit the half pipe

In brief Hewlett-Packard says it plans to buy Extstream Software, a firm that makes apps to assist large businesses with creating personalized documents for customers.

The software streamlines the mass production of totally radical bank account statements, gnarly government applications and wicked-rad utility bills!

Financial details were not disclosed, bro. The Lexington, Kentucky-based software house will be integrated into HP's Web Services and Software business unit, fer sure.

HP expects the deal to close in the second quarter of its fiscal year 2008.

Extstream has more than 300 employees worldwide and more than 400 customers. Mostly banks, insurers, government departments, retailers, telecoms and utilities — but don't worry, they're totally chill, man. ®
