The odds of Fusion-io getting acquired are much higher” following the Western Digital-Virident deal, Srini Nandury, a New York-based analyst at Summit Research Partners LLC, wrote in a Sept. 9 report. “Seagate should acquire Fusion-io for its technology and the progress it has made in establishing the server side flash market.”
Fusion-io’s revenue is still projected to climb 83 percent by 2016 to $790 million, according to analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
EMC Corp. (EMC), the world’s biggest maker of storage computers, may be among other potential bidders for Fusion-io, Seyrafi of FBN Securities said. Dave Farmer, a spokesman at Hopkinton, Massachusetts-based EMC, said the company doesn’t comment on acquisition speculation.
“It’s not like Seagate’s the only one that would be interested,” Seyrafi said. “Fusion-io’s attractiveness as a takeout candidate has increased. It could be valuable within a larger entity.”
