Summary
  • Computer services company Electronic Data Systems Corp (EDS) hopes to gain a foothold in growing Asian markets by undertaking joint ventures in China and Japan, and is also working on a strategy to increase Latin American and European market penetration. A 40 percent annual overseas growth rate is projected over the remainder of the decade, with targeted foreign sales to increase from $380 million to $1 billion by 1990, according to senior VP Gary J. Fernandes. EDS was sold by founder H. Ross Perot to General Motors (GM) in 1984 for $2.5 billion, when the company was a computer services industry leader. A GM-EDS agreement was signed allowing EDS to remain an independent firm under the GM corporate umbrella. Conflicts between Perot and GM management eventually led to one of the most publicized corporate divorces in US business history.
