@VMware CEO Says It’s a ‘Good Time’ to Be Looking at Acquisitions Gelsinger seeing a drop in “ #unicorn valuations,” “arrogance” Company is able to look at deals “into the billions” #VMware Inc. Chief Executive Officer @PatGelsinger, whose parent company is in the midst of being acquired by #Dell Inc., is mulling his own shopping expedition. A decline in both “unicorn valuations” and “unicorn arrogance” means the virtualization-software company has more attractive opportunities for acquisitions, he said in an interview. Gelsinger joins Silicon Valley executives like Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co.’s CEO @MegWhitman, and @Alphabet Inc’s corporate development chief @DavidDrummond in welcoming the opportunity for deals. @Apple Inc.’s CEO @TimCook and @Salesforce.com Inc.’s CEO @MarcBenioff have also commented on the potential for acquisitions in the new environment.
