16:14 EDTCTXSCitrix announces increase of focus on core enterprise strategy
Citrix Systems announced the initial results of its operations review. The decisions made will allow the company to significantly increase focus on its core enterprise strategy of secure and reliable delivery of applications and data, and consequently build a more efficient, scalable and profitable company. Immediate actions include rationalizing the company's current product portfolio, realigning and optimizing operations and resources, and a restructuring of its labor force. Key conclusions and initial plans from the company's operational review include, but are not limited to: A determination that a spinoff of the GoTo family of products into a separate public company is in the best interest of all stakeholders, allowing both companies to enhance its strategic focus and respective competitive positions, while permitting Citrix to improve operational efficiency. Please see news release here for additional detail. Plans to increase emphasis and resources to core enterprise products for secure and reliable application and data delivery, including XenApp, XenDesktop, XenMobile, ShareFile and NetScaler. To achieve this focus, the company will end investment in certain other products and programs, in some cases moving technologies into strategic products, in other cases providing an orderly end-of-life to non-core products. The evaluation of all products, technologies, offerings and programs is ongoing, and will focus on enterprise readiness, ability to drive customer value, and growth and profitability prospects. A realignment of resources that is expected to eliminate about 1,000 full-time and contract roles, excluding the effect of spinning off the GoTo business. The restructuring will focus on simplification of the company's enterprise go-to-market motion and roles while improving coverage, reflect changes in the company's product focus, and balance resources with demand across the company's marketing, general and administration areas. The majority of these actions will take place in November 2015 and in January 2016. As a result of these actions, Citrix said it expects to achieve approximately $200M in annualized pre-tax cost savings, with approximately 75% of those cost savings anticipated to be realized in FY16. Citrix currently expects to incur pre-tax charges in the range of approximately $65M-$85M related to employee severance arrangements during the Q4 of FY15 and during FY16.

16:07 EDTCTXSCitrix to spin off GoTo family of products
Citrix Systems announced plans to spin off its GoTo family of products into a separate, publicly traded company. The transaction, which is intended to be a tax-free spinoff to Citrix shareholders, is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016. Citrix's announcement to pursue a separation follows a thorough review of strategic alternatives for the GoTo family of products. Citrix believes that this strategic decision will allow Citrix and the company established by the spinoff to enhance their strategic focus and respective competitive positions, while permitting Citrix to improve operational efficiency. Immediately following the separation, Citrix shareholders will own shares in two publicly traded companies: The company established as a result of the spinoff will be made up of GoToAssist, GoToMeeting, GoToMyPC, GoToTraining, GoToWebinar, Grasshopper and OpenVoice. This company will more effectively allocate resources in line with its own market opportunity, unique growth priorities and go-to-market capabilities, as well as adapt more quickly to SaaS market and customer dynamics; and, Citrix, which will focus on its strategic solutions for secure and reliable delivery of applications and data. Upon completion of the separation, Chris Hylen, who currently serves as senior vice president and general manager of the Citrix Mobility Apps Business Unit, will serve as CEO of the new company. Citrix plans to provide further details about the board and management team as it works towards completion of the separation. Citrix will disclose additional information regarding the spinoff, including historical financial and capitalization information, in a Form 10 to be filed with the SEC on a future date. The name of the new company will be determined in the coming months.

10:33 EDTQCOMCiti says Xilinx, not Maxim, likely to be acquired
According to Citi, analog chip maker Maxim Semiconductor (MXIM) probably won't be acquired, despite Bloomberg reports which stated that Texas Instruments (TXN) and Analog Devices (ADI) had held talks about potentially buying the company. The firm sees Xilinx (XLNX) as the only large cap chip maker remaining that has "all of the attributes of a good takeover target." WHAT'S NEW: The only two companies capable of buying Maxim are Texas Instruments and Analog Devices, Citi analyst Christopher Danely wrote in a note to investors today. However, Maxim's valuation is too high for Texas Instruments and the deal would be too big for Analog Devices, the analyst stated. However, Xilinx is a potential takeover target, partly due to its high margins, a size large enough that it could impact an acquirer's profits and its cost cutting opportunities, Danely stated. One potential acquirer of Xilinx is Qualcomm (QCOM), which has suggested that it could be interested in M&A opportunities in the future, the analyst wrote. Despite his belief that Xilinx could be acquired, Danely kept a Neutral rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On October 14, Bloomberg reported that Analog Devices and Maxim were in merger talks. On October 28, the news service reported that Texas Instruments was in talks about buying Maxim. According to Bloomberg, Maxim was working with a bank on a strategic review before it was approached by Analog Devices. Maxim may not want to sell itself unless it receives a large premium, the news service stated. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Maxim was flat near $38.86 per share, while Xilinx gained 1.5% to $47.83.
08:54 EDTQCOMMaxim could be bidder for Fairchild, says Citi
Citi analyst Atif Malik views Maxim Integrated (MXIM) as a potential acquirer Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS). Bloomberg on October 13 reported that Fairchild was seeking advice for a potential sale, and listed potential acquirers as STMicroelectronics (STM), Infineon (IFNNY) and ON Semiconductor (ON). Bids from STM and ON seem unlikely, but Infineon and Maxim could be potential acquirers of Fairchild, Malik tells investors in a research note. In a bull case scenario, Fairchild's buyout value could reach $25 per share, the analyst contends. Fairchild closed yesterday at $17.76. Malik's peer at Citi, analyst Christopher Danely, argued today in research note that Maxim Integrated (MXIM) is unlikely to get acquired despite reports of interest from Analog Devices (ADI) and Texas Instruments (TXN). Danely views Xilinx (XLNX) as a potential takeout target, potentially for Qualcomm (QCOM).
08:37 EDTQCOMCiti sees Xilinx, not Maxim, as potential takeout candidate
Citi analyst Christopher Danely says he does not expect Maxim Integrated (MXIM) to get acquired despite reports of interest from Analog Devices (ADI) and Texas Instruments (TXN). Xilinx (XLNX) is the only large-cap semiconductor company left with "all of the attributes of a good takeover target," Danely tells investors in a research note. He believes Xilinx management could be willing sellers at the right price, and points out Qualcomm (QCOM) has a history of doing deals. Xilinx could make a good candidate for Qualcomm, Danely contends.
