as suspected no one here can even offer an answer.What a bunch of ........Have fun kids!
The answer is very simple,CSCO already ownes 6% of vmw when it went public back in 2007. So does Intel owns 3 to 6% from what i recall.Rest of the VMW is wholy owned by EMC so if CSCO bought EMC, VMW comes with it since emc has the ownership.totaol of 400mil shares, 78mil shares or so are a float, lot of which is owned by insiders and VMW staff. 300mil is with emc.So 30dollar a share for EMC is a bargin. considering maket cap for VMW alone is 35bil alone.. so emc will only cost them 18dollar a share.EMC has substantial cash so does VMW, which amounts to close to 10bil..You do the math, this really is a bargin. I personnaly think EMC is worth about 34 to 36 dollar a share.CSCO is stupid, if they dont go for it. This will put them in driving seat to start competeing with IBM HP ORCL and many other companies..
>>>300mil is with emc.<<<Help me understand. Where did you get the 300m shares figure from? Yahoo is stating EMC owns 31.6m shares of VMW. This is ony 7.7% not 80%.Thanks in advance
VMW comes with it since emc has the ownership.There is @ 20% of the float not in EMC's hands.Institutions andc retail.Obviously CSCO or whomever would either buy the rest or let VMW trade freely.Any thoughts on this? And if they buy the rest of VMW how do you value this? What price would it take to buy the rest.anybody?I own EMC and VMW
The information that I have is that CSCO only owns 1.6% not 6% ofVMW. Having said that there is always the possibility I couldbe mistaken. Please direct me to the link that indicates a 6%ownership.Thank you!Aloha
