Unit IP Networking company Brocade may be bought by Dell, Arris Group, Extreme Networks or Lenovo
Last month the company acquired the Broadcom Brocade Communications Systems for $ 5.9 billion. Then it became known that Broadcom intended to divide Brocade, selling the direction of IP Networking to someone else.
Now sources name of potential buyers. Note that selling a business includes assets of Ruckus Wireless, which Brocade acquired in the current year for $ 1.2 billion.
Thus, investigators are Dell, Arris Group, Extreme Networks and Lenovo, if to speak about large companies. But also stipulate the part of Brocade can be purchased by private investors. The source also published a list of companies that in theory might be interested in buying, but is unlikely to go for it. Talking about Huawei, Cisco, Alcatel Lucent Enterprise, Juniper Networks and Arista Networks.
Analysts suggest that the transaction amount will be between $ 2.2 billion.
