05:57 EDTVMWVMware, Carahsoft pay $75.5M to settle claims of overcharging government
VMware and Carahsoft Technology Corporation yesterday agreed to pay $75.5M to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by misrepresenting their commercial pricing practices and overcharging the government on VMware software products and related services, the Department of Justice announced. VMware is a Delaware corporation that specializes in computer virtualization software and has its principal place of business in Palo Alto, California. Carahsoft is a privately held Maryland corporation that distributes information technology products to federal, state and local governments and has its principal place of business in Reston, Virginia. The settlement resolves allegations that VMware and Carahsoft made false statements to the government in connection with the sale of VMware products and services under Carahsoft’s MAS contract. These false statements allegedly concealed the companies’ commercial pricing practices and enabled the companies to overcharge the government for VMware’s products and services from 2007 through 2013. The civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed under the whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act, which permits private parties to file suit on behalf of the United States for false claims and obtain a portion of the government’s recovery. The civil lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia by Dane Smith, who is a former vice president of the Americas at VMware Inc. Smith’s share of the recovery has not been determined.

05:59 EDTSAPGartner: Worldwide IT spending on pace to decline 5.5% in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.5T in 2015, a 5.5% decline from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Analysts attribute the decline to the rising U.S. dollar. In constant-currency terms, the market is projected to grow 2.5%. In Gartner's previous forecast in April, it had forecast IT spending to decline 1.3% in U.S. dollars and grow 3.1% in constant currency. "We want to stress that this is not a market crash. Such are the illusions that large swings in the value of the U.S. dollar versus other currencies can create," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "However, there are secondary effects to the rising U.S. dollar. Vendors do have to raise prices to protect costs and margins of their products, and enterprises and consumers will have to make new purchase decisions in light of the new prices." Communications services will continue to be the largest IT spending segment in 2015 with spending at nearly $1.5T. However, this segment is also experiencing the strongest decline among the five IT sectors. In the device market, mobile phones continue to be the leading segment, with growth in Apple phones, especially in China, keeping overall phone spending consistent. However, overall smartphone unit growth will start to flatten. The PC and tablet market continues to weaken. The expected 10 percent increase in average PC pricing in currency-impacted countries is going ahead, delaying purchases even more than expected. Excessive PC inventory levels, especially in Western Europe, need to be cleared, which will delay Windows 10 inventory in the second half of the year. Within the data center systems segment, storage and network markets are both expected to see weaker growth in U.S. dollar terms as a result of the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Reference Link

10:02 EDTVMWHP deal for EMC 'more than a distinct possibility,' says Raymond James
Noting that shares of both HP (HPQ) and EMC (EMC) have been stagnant, Raymond James analyst Brian Alexander repeated that he believes shareholders of both would earn substantial returns from a deal between the two and that he thinks an HP acquisition of EMC is "more than a distinct possibility." Alexander previously said in a note to investors on June 4 that he believed HP will ultimately buy EMC, including VMware (VMW). Assuming EMC is acquired for $32-$34 at various combinations of debt/stock, accretion for HP ranges from 39%-52%, Alexander calculates. Raymond James has a Market Perform rating on HP, a Strong Buy rating on EMC and an Outperform rating on VMware.
