VMware odkoupí Pivotal Software, vedoucí developerskou platformu pro vývoj moderních aplikací
VMware odkoupí Carbon Black, předního poskytovatele cloudové bezpečnosti nové generace
PRAHA / PALO ALTO, Calif., 30. srpna, 2019 — Společnost VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), přední inovátor v oblasti podnikového softwaru, v srpnu oznámila hospodářské výsledky za druhé čtvrtletí fiskálního roku 2020:
„Stavějíce na dalším silném čtvrletí, s nadšením oznamujeme náš záměr odkoupit Pivotal a Carbon Black,” říká Pat Gelsinger, CEO VMware. „Tyto akvizice ztělesňují dvě zasádní technologické priority všech současných společností – budování aplikací podnikové třídy a ochrana pracovní zátěže a klientů. Těmito činy tak významně zvyšujeme odběr a nabídkové rozhraní SaaS a zlepšujeme naši schopnost podpořit digitální transformaci našich klientů.“
„Velmi nás těší silné finanční výsledky v druhém kvartálu, které reflektovaly náš široký dosah a sílu ve všech třech regionech,“ říká Zane Rowe, výkoný viceprezident a CFO, VMware. „Naše cloudová strategie a silný růst Hybrid Cloudu a SaaS naberou znatelně větší rychlost s Pivotal a Carbon Black v našem portfoliu.“

VMware has announced that it has entered into agreements to acquire Pivotal and Carbon Black. These companies address key strategic IT priorities — building apps with a modern approach and protecting enterprise workloads and clients. With Pivotal, VMware will be able to deliver an integrated modern apps portfolio combining Pivotal’s next-generation developer platform and VMware’s Kubernetes portfolio. With Carbon Black, VMware will be able to provide a next generation security cloud with Carbon Black’s protection suite and VMware’s intrinsic security assets. Adding these companies to VMware’s portfolio will allow VMware to deliver software solutions that enable customers to build, run, manage, connect and protect any app, on any cloud and any device.
Under the terms of the Pivotal merger agreement, Pivotal’s Class A common stockholders will receive $15 per share in cash for each share held, and Pivotal’s Class B common stockholder, Dell Technologies, will receive approximately 7.2 million shares of VMware Class B common stock, based on an exchange ratio of 0.0550 shares of VMware for each share of Pivotal. This transaction, in aggregate, will result in an expected net cash payout for VMware of $0.8 billion. The impact of equity issued to Dell Technologies would increase its ownership stake in VMware by approximately 0.34 percentage points to 81.09% based on the shares currently outstanding. VMware currently holds 15 percent of Pivotal’s fully-diluted outstanding shares. The transaction will be funded through cash on the balance sheet, access to short-term borrowing capacity, and the issuance of approximately 7.2 million shares of VMware Class B common stock to Dell.
Under the terms of the Carbon Black merger agreement, Carbon Black stockholders will receive $26 per share cash for each share held, resulting in a net cash payout for VMware of $1.9 billion. The transaction will be funded through cash on the balance sheet and access to short-term borrowing capacity.
Closing of both transactions is subject to closing conditions, and is expected in the second half of VMware’s fiscal year 2020, which ends January 31, 2020.
