(Bloomberg) -- VMware Inc. agreed to purchase two software companies on Thursday, expanding its reach in development tools and cybersecurity.The Palo Alto, California-based company said the net cash payout for the two purchases will be $2.7 billion. It’s buying Pivotal Software Inc., which sells cloud software and services, for a blended share price of $11.71, representing an enterprise value of $2.7 billion. VMware also agreed to purchase Carbon Black Inc., a cybersecurity firm, for $26 a share, representing an enterprise value of $2.1 billion.VMware, which makes virtualization and networking tools and is majority-owned by Dell Technologies Inc., said the combined company will provide software to build, run, manage, connect and protect any app on the cloud or any device. Purchasing the two companies will accelerate VMware’s plan to deliver secure, multicloud application development.The two acquisitions “will meaningfully expand our ability to power our customer’s digital transformation,” said Pat Gelsinger, VMware’s chief executive officer.“These acquisitions address two critical technology priorities of all businesses today -- building modern, enterprise-grade applications and protecting enterprise workloads and clients,” he said.Pivotal CEO Rob Mee said, “Together, we will form an organization that combines Pivotal’s expertise modernizing organizations with VMware’s capabilities and experience operating at scale.”Once the deal for Waltham, Massachusetts-based Carbon Black is complete, VMware said it would be positioned to provide “highly differentiated, intrinsic security cloud” through big data, behavioral analytics and artificial intelligence.“We now have the opportunity to seamlessly integrate Carbon Black’s cloud native end point protection platform into all of VMware’s control points,” said Patrick Morley, Carbon Black’s CEO.Both transactions are expected to be completed in the second half of VMware’s fiscal year, which ends Jan. 31.JPMorgan Chase & Co. acted as financial adviser to VMware on the deals, with Morrison & Foerster LLP acting as legal adviser to VMware on the Carbon Black acquisition and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati as legal counsel to VMware on the Pivotal purchase.(Corrects overall purchase price in headline, purchase values in story.)\--With assistance from Jim Silver.To contact the reporter on this story: William Turton in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tom Giles at email@example.com, Andrew Martin, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
