Pivotal Software downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham

Needham analyst Jack Andrews downgraded Pivotal Software (PVTL) after yesterday's announcement that it is being acquired by VMWare (VMW) at $2.7B. The analyst notes that the implied multiple of 3.6-times enterprise value to consensus FY20 revenue is too low, but he does not expect the deal to encounter any competing offers.

Outperform
Proposed deal makes sense for both VMware, Pivotal, says William Blair
A Dell Technologies (DELL) filing last night revealed that the boards of VMware (VMW) and Pivotal Software (PVTL) have each established special committees to negotiate an agreement for VMware to acquire Pivotal for $15 per share in cash. While a deal may not happen, the proposed combination makes strategic sense for both parties, William Blair analyst Jason Ader tells investors in a research note. If a deal were to be consummated, it would result in Dell increasing its ownership stake in VMware through the proposed stock transaction, the analyst adds. He reiterates an Outperform rating on shares of VMware.

BMO Capital not supportive of potential VMware deal for Pivotal Software
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman keeps his Outperform rating on VMWare (VMW) with a price target of $198 but says he is not supportive of its confirmed agreement to acquire the remaining equity in Pivotal Software (PVTL). The analyst notes that while the combined entity would improve the messaging in go-to-market strategy and product overlap - areas where the partnership had previously struggled - the deal also contains "worse" financial implications for VMWare, since Pivotal's Expected operating loss in FY20 would reduce VMWare's operating margins by about 300bps.

VMware price target lowered to $190 from $220 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead lowered his price target for VMware (VMW) to $190 from $220 based on the 7% hit to shares and conversations with investors, saying the consensus view of the potential $15 per share acquisition of Pivotal Software (PVTL) appears to be negative. The concerns seem based on Dell governance issues, margin dilution and strategic fit, Keirstead tells investors in a research note. He maintains a Buy rating.

VMware price target lowered to $160 from $198 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman lowered his price target on VMware (VMW) to $160 to reflect the "formidable" headwinds seen in on-premise spending, noting that the company's Q4 ramp guidance is unlikely to be realized. The analyst also contends that VMWare's deal with Pivotal Software (PVTL) comes with "governance issues" and conflicts of interest related to Dell (DELL), which may weigh on the company's multiple expansion. Bachman still keeps his Outperform rating on VMware and sees its core compute and management businesses remaining "healthy".

VMware to deliver 'solid' Q2 results, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Matthew Hedberg kept his Outperform rating and $210 price target on VMWare (VMW) ahead of its Q2 results this week. The analyst expects a "solid" quarter of results driven by the "diversity" of its business in spite of the "mixed" industry sentiment and the "general weakness" from the company's infrastructure software peers. Hedberg further cites the findings of his reseller survey about the demand environment, which he sees as "generally above" FY19 averages amid continued optimism around VMWare's Amazon AWS (AMZN) and Microsoft Azure (MSFT) partnerships.

Overweight
JPMorgan 'highly surprised' by incremental strength in VMware partner survey
JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy said his quarterly survey of 28 VMware partners left him "highly surprised" by the incremental strength reported given the backdrop of clearly softening demand for infrastructure hardware and software companies. Partners finished the quarter 3.4% above plan, on average, which Murphy identifies as the highest level for a Q2. Additionally, all key metrics up ticked year-over-year and sequentially, leading him to view VMware as well positioned. Murphy did add, though, that 46% of VMware partners believe Enterprise data center spending is beginning to soften and that he suspects Q1 billings growth benefitted from delays in Q4 bookings, which could "create an adverse setup for Q2 billings growth optics." Murphy keeps an Overweight rating on VMware shares.
