11:04 EDTHPQEMC advances after activist letter, report on HP merger talks
Shares of EMC (EMC) are rising slightly in a down market after activist investor Elliott Management disclosed that it wrote in a letter to the company's board that it had heard of "acquisition interest in EMC's assets on the part of several large companies." The firm called on EMC to pursue M&A opportunities and spin off its VMware (VMW) subsidiary. WHAT'S NEW: Since July, several large companies have expressed "acquisition interest" in EMC's assets, Eliiott wrote. Acquisitions of EMC's assets by these companies would be logical from a strategic perspective, the firm added. The parties that have expressed interest could afford to buy all of EMC or a number of its assets, according to Elliott. EMC should look to spin off VMware because owning VMware is holding down the value of EMC's stock and damaging its relationship with its customers, the investor stated. VMware is hurting EMC by competing with EMC's customers, Elliott explained. Elliott Management noted that is affiliates collectively own or have economic exposure to about 2.2% of the common stock and equivalents of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: HP (HPQ) and EMC are still conducting due diligence on a potential merger, CNBC's David Faber reported this morning, citing sources. A deal is unlikely, but still possible, and would include a buy-in of VMware, Faber added. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, EMC rose 0.3% to $28.20, VMware slid 0.9% to $90.59 and HP dropped 1.2% to $34.80.
