 HP  announced Thursday that it will cut an additional 11,000 to 16,000 jobs, after previously revealing plans for 34,000 layoffs.

The news came as part of the company's second-quarter financial results, which were in line with analyst expectations. Shares slipped 2% in after-hours trading Thursday.

HP said the latest layoffs would come across all its business units and geographic locations, and would generate $1 billion in annual savings beyond the $3.5 to $4 billion projected from the previously announced cuts.

"No company likes to decrease the work force, and we recognize that this is difficult for employees," CEO Meg Whitman said in a conference call with analysts. "I think everyone understands the turnaround we're in."

"No company likes to decrease the work force ...

Shareholders love it.

... we recognize that this is difficult for employees

That's an understatement.
