Unisys keeps federal unit

Unisys Corp. has decided not to sell its federal business unit because weak market conditions produced unattractive offers.

The company announced its decision April 16 when it released its first quarter 2001 earnings, which showed net income of $69.3 million, compared with $107.4 million in the first quarter of 2000.

Unisys will streamline the operations of the federal business to align it more closely with the rest of the company, said Joe McGrath, president of Unisys Global Industries.
