On May 26, 2022, VMware announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Broadcom in a deal valued at approximately $61 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, VMware stockholders will have the choice to receive either $142.50 in cash or 0.2520 shares of Broadcom common stock for each share of VMware common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in Broadcom’s fiscal year 2023.
Bragar Eagel & Squire is concerned that VMware’s board of directors oversaw an unfair process and ultimately agreed to an inadequate merger agreement. Accordingly, the firm is investigating all relevant aspects of the deal and is committed to securing the best result possible for VMware’s stockholders.
