11:17 EDTCSCOEMC seen as potential target after said to mull VMware stake sale
EMC (EMC) is considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW), The New York Post reported today, citing unnamed sources. Calling The New York Post "surprisingly accurate" on M&A news, UBS said the likelihood of change at EMC has increased and it has become a potential takeover target. WHAT'S NEW: EMC is exploring the possibility of selling its stake in VMware, which could be acquired by HP (HPQ), according to one source, The Post reported. EMC could also look to sell other assets, the newspaper quoted a second unnamed source as saying. ANALYST REACTION: UBS analyst Steven Milunovich wrote that he is more convinced in the wake of the Post story that "something is up" at EMC. Although EMC has denied in the past that it would consider selling or spinning off VMware, the company could change its tune, the analyst stated. HP could buy VMware or all of EMC, while Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) are also potential buyers of EMC, Milunovich believes.The analyst kept a $33 price target and Buy rating on shares of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Activist investor Elliott Management, a hedge fund, has taken a $1B stake in EMC and wants the company to spin off VMware, The Wall Street Journal reported in July. Early last month, research firm FBR Capital wrote that an EMC spin-off of VMware could enhance shareholder value for both companies and make VMware a top acquisition candidate by a larger technology company. The firm kept an Outperform rating on EMC at that time. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, EMC was little changed at $29.50, down from its earlier high of $29.89. VMware fell 0.7% to $96.75, down from its earlier daily high of $97.86.

09:06 EDTGSITGigOptix says 'disappointed' in GSI Technology board acquisition rejection
GigOptix (GIG) announced that it had sent the following letter to the GSI Technology board of directors in response to the announcement by GSI Technology (GSIT) that its board of directors has rejected GigOptix’ previously announced proposal to acquire GSI Technology. The company said, "I am in receipt of Mr. Shu’s letter dated September 8. We are disappointed that GSI Technology’s Board of Directors, without even engaging in a discussion with us, has rejected our acquisition proposal and chosen to deny its stockholders the opportunity to achieve a substantial premium and immediate liquidity for their shares. We are confident that moving forward promptly to consummate a transaction is in the best interests of all parties. We believe we are offering GSI Technology’s stockholders superior value and the opportunity to participate in the upside of the combined company, which we believe is a better outcome than GSI Technology remaining an independent company as you have proposed in your letter. As we have previously stated, the combination should offer an increasingly exciting set of solutions for customers, providing an offering of both your high performance memory products for networking and telecommunications equipment and our high speed communications components. Together, this would allow us to strengthen the value proposition that we collectively provide to our customers through a wider range of companion and complementary products and more effectively challenge our respective competitors in the marketplace. We and our advisors stand ready at any time to meet and review our offer directly with you."
