Re: But it's strategic
That's where it gets dicey, right? I mean will Dell sell enough gear, VMware enough licenses and so on to justify $450M? No idea and they wouldn't track it that way anyway. 

It does suck to be a shareholder and just watch people go shopping with your money.

Re: But it's strategic
 

Hey, I don't know if it will be a good deal over time.  But you would have to make $450M in profit to balance the expense.  They will have to put a bunch of Goodwill on the Balance Sheet that they can write down the next time there is a blip in earnings.  It always galls me that Management Teams feel nothing about spending the shareholder's money.

Re: Also
I wonder if they felt like that, with Dell's enterprise clients and channel, they'd be able to do such a large volume of business over time that the price would seem more reasonable?

Also
That would indicate that they paid over 4x sales for VeloCloud.  That seems really, really high.
