History

Prior to its existence as an independent company, the group that became Keysight was the electronic test and measurement division of first Hewlett-Packard, and later Agilent. HP began as a company making electronic test equipment, with the computer and life sciences products coming later. In 1999, HP spun-off all test and measurement products into Agilent and retained the computer and printer businesses. On November 1, 2014, the formal separation of Agilent and Keysight Technologies was completed, with Agilent retaining the life science businesses. The separation was implemented through a spinoff of Keysight’s common stock. Agilent shareholders received one share of Keysight common stock for every two shares of Agilent common stock held October 22, 2014.

In June 2015, Keysight announced it would acquire the UK’s Anite PLC in a deal worth £388 million.

In 2017, Keysight acquired Ixia for about $1.6 billion in cash.

On 25 June 2020, Keysight acquired Eggplant for $330 million from the Carlyle Group.
