Last week the New York times published an article titled: “EMC explores selling stake in VMware“. While the news that EMC is exploring selling VMware is not new though. Paul Singer, CEO of Elliot Management Corporation who has a stake in EMC has been pressuring EMC to exit the 80% stake it has in VMware.
The option that HP might be interested in buying VMware is quite interesting though, even though the New York times doesn’t name its source. HP Both EMC and HP decline to comment as expected.
EMC acquired VMware in 2004.
