Quartz reports that the company’s board of directors has been toying with breaking up the company. Several options have been discussed, but one realistic one be spinning off the PC business, which former chief Leo Apotheker had wanted to do. Conversely, the company can just as well remain intact, since the company has been recovering lately. There is no overt pressure beyond lingering discussion, Quartz says.
UPDATE: Upon seeing the Quartz story, AllThingsD is reporting that HP is not considering a break up at the moment.
