Keysight Technologies Announces Changes to Segment Reporting Structure

August 03, 2016

SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that it has changed the reporting of its segment results to align the company’s reporting segments with the company’s end markets and management reporting structure. Beginning in the third quarter of fiscal year 2016, the company will report operating results based on three segments: Communications Solutions Group, Electronic Industrial Solutions Group and Services Solutions Group.

The Communications Solutions Group serves customers spanning the worldwide commercial communications end markets, which includes internet infrastructure, and the aerospace, defense and government end markets. The group provides electronic design and test software, instruments, and systems used in the simulation, design, validation, manufacturing, installation and optimization of electronic equipment.

The Electronic Industrial Solutions Group provides test and measurement solutions across a broad set of electronic industrial end markets, focusing on high-growth applications in the automotive and energy industries, and measurement solutions for consumer electronics, education and manufacturing, as well as semiconductor parametric testing, nano-positioning metrology and material science. The group provides electronic design and test software, instruments, and systems used in the simulation, design, validation, manufacturing, installation and optimization of electronic equipment.

The Services Solutions Group provides repair, calibration and consulting services, and remarkets used Keysight equipment. The group serves the same markets as Keysight’s communications and electronic industrial solutions groups, providing industry-specific services to deliver complete Keysight solutions and help customers reduce their total cost of ownership for their design and test equipment. This segment was formerly reported as the company’s Customer Support and Services segment.

The company will announce its financial results for the third quarter on Aug. 17, and will report segment financial performance based on these three operating segments.
