Do you know the difference between operating income and revenue?

In 2021, HPE's operating income was about $1.1B... Who knows how much free cash flow HPE has now but it probably not a lot to sustain for 5 years. I expect HPE to faceplant once their FY ends in October.

$30M may tickle HPE's wallet a little bit but that would be a few hundred people's (or Neri's) salary gone for the year. Remember: time is money.

30 million doesnt seem like much to a company like hpe with revenues of $28 billion. Thats about 0.1%.
