NCR was founded in 1884 and acquired by ATT in 1991. A restructuring of ATT in 1996 led to NCR's re-establishment on 1 January 1997 as a separate company, and involved the spin-off of Lucent Technologies from ATT. NCR is the only ATT spin-off company that has retained its original name—all the others have either been purchased or renamed following subsequent mergers.
