In a deal brokered by Dell Applied sciences Inc, VMware Inc purchased Pivotal Software program Inc for $2.7 billion. Net profit of Dollars 4.93 billion included a USD 538 million valuation loss on the Pivotal stake as well as a USD 4.9 billion tax benefit resulting from an internal transfer of worldwide intellectual property rights.

Carbon Black is a publicly traded security company that provides services to modern cloud-native workloads. Based on current outstanding shares, the impact of equity issued to Dell would raise its ownership stake in VMware to 81.09 percent. The company's market value on Thursday stood at $1.8 billion.

Sources familiar with the subject informed that VMware will pay $26 per share for Carbon Black at a premium of 6% and the deal is expected to close by January 2020. "That's pretty broken", he said, praising Carbon Black's platform. "We are excited to combine Pivotal's development platform, tools and services with VMware's infrastructure capabilities to deliver a comprehensive Kubernetes portfolio to build, run and manage modern applications".

"As digital transformation accelerates in enterprises, we see three secular trends becoming stronger: First, multicloud is the new model for enterprise IT; second, digital transformation is driving accelerated pace of cloud native app development, "Gelsinger said Thursday during the company's second-quarter earnings call when both acquisitions were announced".
