11:13 EDTPFPT, QLYS, CUDA, FEYE, KEYWIT security companies rally following FireEye deal
Shares of a number of information security companies are advancing after one of the companies in the sector, FireEye (FEYE), announced last night that it had bought privately held cybersecurity firm Mandiant. WHAT'S NEW: FireEye stated that it would acquire Mandiant for $106.5M and 21.5 million shares of FireEye's stock. The deal closed on December 30, added FireEye. Separately, FireEye raised its fourth quarter revenue outlook to $55M-$57M from a prior view of $52M-$54M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $53.57M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors, SunTrust analyst Tobey Sommer stated that Mandiant was acquired for a total price of about $1 billion, or ten times its revenue. If cybersecurity company KEYW Holding (KEYW) was acquired at a similar valuation, the company could be bought for over $80 per share, Sommer estimated. Sommer kept a Buy rating on KEYW, which was trading near $15 per share in late morning trading. PRICE ACTION: Investors were positively reacting to FireEye's announcements,sending the company's shares up more than 32% to $54.44. A number of other cybersecurity companies rose significantly in late morning trading as well, with KEYW surging 9.7% to $15.00, Proofpoint (PFPT) rising 7% to $34.67, Qualys (QLYS) advancing 3.5% to $24.00, and Barracuda Networks (CUDA) gaining 2.9% to $38.25.
