VMware's VMW strong fiscal 2020 second-quarter results included 12% year-over-year revenue growth and non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.60, both exceeding consensus expectations. A weaker outlook for license-based sales led to lower-than-expected third-quarter revenue guidance from management, but VMware kept its companywide revenue target for fiscal 2020 intact. The narrow-moat company said it has reached definitive agreements to purchase Pivotal Software, a vendor offering a developer platform for container-based workloads, for a total enterprise value of $2.7 billion and Carbon Black, an endpoint security vendor, for an enterprise value worth $2.1 billion.
(Bloomberg) -- VMware Inc. agreed to purchase two software companies on Thursday, expanding its reach in development tools and cybersecurity.The Palo Alto, California-based company said the net cash payout for the two purchases will be $2.7 billion. It’s buying Pivotal Software Inc., which sells cloud software and services, for a blended share price of $11.71, representing an enterprise value of $2.7 billion. VMware also agreed to purchase Carbon Black Inc., a cybersecurity firm, for $26 a share, representing an enterprise value of $2.1 billion.VMware, which makes virtualization and networking tools and is majority-owned by Dell Technologies Inc., said the combined company will provide software to build, run, manage, connect and protect any app on the cloud or any device. Purchasing the two companies will accelerate VMware’s plan to deliver secure, multicloud application development.The two acquisitions “will meaningfully expand our ability to power our customer’s digital transformation,” said Pat Gelsinger, VMware’s chief executive officer.“These acquisitions address two critical technology priorities of all businesses today -- building modern, enterprise-grade applications and protecting enterprise workloads and clients,” he said.Pivotal CEO Rob Mee said, “Together, we will form an organization that combines Pivotal’s expertise modernizing organizations with VMware’s capabilities and experience operating at scale.”Once the deal for Waltham, Massachusetts-based Carbon Black is complete, VMware said it would be positioned to provide “highly differentiated, intrinsic security cloud” through big data, behavioral analytics and artificial intelligence.“We now have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate Carbon Black’s cloud native end point protection platform into all of VMware’s control points,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black’s CEO.Both transactions are expected to be completed in the second half of VMware’s fiscal year, which ends Jan. 31.JPMorgan Chase & Co. acted as financial adviser to VMware on the deals, with Morrison & Foerster LLP acting as legal adviser to VMware on the Carbon Black acquisition and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati as legal counsel to VMware on the Pivotal purchase.(Corrects overall purchase price in headline, purchase values in story.)\--With assistance from Jim Silver.To contact the reporter on this story: William Turton in New York at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tom Giles at firstname.lastname@example.org, Andrew Martin, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

It was a Rorschach test of sorts, in that investors read what they wanted into comments made by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell today in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Then President Donald Trump responded.Powell said there is no "rulebook" for a trade war and promised that the Fed would "act as appropriate to sustain the expansion."InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsTrump, dissatisfied with a lack of stimulative action, tweeted "the Fed did NOTHING," and then followed that tweet with another, saying "Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing […] your companies HOME and making your products in the USA."The meaning and nature of the message wasn't entirely clear, but investors saw the glass as half empty rather than half full. By the time the closing bell rang, the S&P 500 was down to the tune of 2.6%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.4%, while the NASDAQ Composite ended the day down 3.0%.Bond prices advanced on Friday, partly as a result of investors seeking safety that stocks can't offer, and partly because at least enough investors suspect another rate cut may be looming. While Powell said little on the matter, the market interpreted his wording and Trump's follow-up as a clue that rates may be moving lower in the foreseeable future.September's Federal Open Market Committee meeting is a regularly scheduled opportunity to change the Fed Funds Rate. Top News in the Stock Market TodayPresuming the trade war being fought between China and the United States in indeed escalating, all companies will be impacted. None may be as hard hit as auto makers like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Ford Motor (NYSE:F), however. That's because both still deliver large numbers of vehicles from the U.S. to China, and now face a reinstituted tariff of 25%. General Motors (NYSE:GM) is also a popular brand in China, but with much of its manufacturing for the market being done there, it's able to circumvent the expensive import duties. * 10 Undervalued Stocks With Breakout Potential Still, GM shares were pressured all the same, as Trump also encouraged companies with manufacturing operations in China to relocate that production elsewhere.VMware (NYSE:VMW) Chief Executive Officer Patrick Gelsinger described the cybersecurity market as "broken" Thursday evening, as a prelude to news that it would be simultaneously acquiring Carbon Black (NASDAQ:CBLK) and Pivotal Software (NYSE:PVTL). "The acquisitions announced today will advance our goal of offering more comprehensive and trusted cloud-agnostic solutions," explained Gelsinger.Shareholders aren't quite as convinced the $4.8 billion VMware is laying out for the two companies is money well spent, however. VMW stock fell almost 10% on the news.A long nightmare for Boeing (NYSE:BA) could be ending soon, according to reports from The Seattle Times. The newspaper's website suggested Thursday evening that the beleaguered 737 MAX could be re-certified by the Federal Aviation Administration within the next few weeks. The plane was grounded in the United States, and elsewhere, after a couple of fatal crashes were linked to a safety system that caused confusion for pilots. The solution, however, is a relatively easy recoding of the software that operates the system.The news didn't boost BA stock much, though it did keep it out of the red on a day most other names were losing a lot of ground. Big MoversFoot Locker (NYSE:FL), already losing ground since rolling over in April, lost another 19% on Friday after reporting sales and earnings that fell short of expectations. Operating income of 66 cents per share missed estimates of 67 cents, and were down nearly a dime from year-ago numbers. Sales of $1.77 billion were also down a bit year-over-year, but more than that, came up short of the $1.82 billion analysts had modeled.Friday was a particularly poor day for toy maker stocks Hasbro (NASDAQ:HAS) and Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT), although for different reasons, neither of which was earnings-related.HAS stock ended the day lower by 10% after the company announced it would be acquiring Entertainment One -- the name behind "Peppa Pig," and others -- for $4 billion. Though Entertainment One's lineup is marketable, investors aren't sure this is the right step at the right time for the struggling company, which makes "Star Wars," "Transformers" and "My Little Pony" toys.Mattel, which owns Barbie and Hot Wheels just to name a few, saw its stock slump 7% largely because Hasbro's deal to buy Entertainment One makes it very unlikely it would also be looking to acquire Mattel as well. Some investors were hoping, and even expecting, the two lethargic names in the toy business to team up as a means of propping one another up.Increasingly strained trade ties with China isn't good news for either toy company either.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
