Nutanix Inc. shares rallied Friday following a report that the hyperconverged-infrastructure company is looking for a possible sale of the company.

Nutanix NTNX, +0.72% shares surged 24.6% to close at $26.35, near their intraday high, following a report by The Wall Street Journal that said the company is exploring a sale following recent takeover interest. That move just fell short of the stock’s recent best one-day performance of a 29% gain on Sept. 1. following a strong quarterly report and outlook. The last time shares closed north of $25 was in early May.

Nutanix is a cloud-software company that specializes in hyperconverged infrastructure, which essentially combines computer storage and servers in a hybrid-cloud product that allows businesses to access on-site computing power as well as public-cloud assets.

Barclays analyst Tim Long, who has an overweight rating and a $25 price target, said it’s plausible Nutanix is looking for a private equity buyer or a strategic fit, and with historical software premiums, can expect offers in the $27 to $30 a share range.

“Nutanix is targeting long-term transformational changes that are tougher to execute as a public company, which is subject to scrutiny quarter to quarter,” Long said. “Getting bought by PE could afford Nutanix the opportunity to prove out its Go-to-Market (GTM) and product strategy with a longer time horizon.”

A strategic acquisition also makes sense, Long said, given Nutanix has enough revenue scale and a strong customer base.

In a recent note, J.P. Morgan analyst Pinjalim Bora, who has an overweight rating and an overweight rating, said Nutanix is benefitting from “a robust renewals portfolio which is expected to gain steam over the next several quarters and a higher than normal backlog build exiting FY22 .”

“We also think, the general availability of Nutanix Clusters on Azure, announced this week at Microsoft MSFT, +3.92% Ignite, could act as a potential medium-term growth catalyst enabling Nutanix to, finally, realize its vision of becoming a truly hybrid-multi-cloud platform,” Bora said.

In a recent note, PiperSandler analyst James Fish, who has an overweight rating and a $25 price target, said the competitive landscape has become more favorable to Nutanix lately.

“Nutanix’s main competitor, VMware, has been acquired by Broadcom AVGO, +1.94%, creating a favorable competitive landscape and potential for sales reps to come to Nutanix. In addition, the established partnerships with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. HPE, +1.51% & [International Business Machine Corp.’s IBM, +1.23% ] RedHat leads to further growth avenues and better positioning together against VMware,” Fish said.

Shares are down 17% year to date, compared with a 25% drop in the S&P 500 index SPX, +2.65% and a 34% fall in the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +9.76%.

Of the 16 analysts who cover Nutanix, nine have buy ratings and seven have hold ratings on the stock, and an average target price of $27.31.

Killexams : Nutanix Weighs Strategic Options Following Takeover Proposal

Motley Fool

Why Nvidia Stock Is Rising Today

Shares of the semiconductor company Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) were jumping this morning on seemingly no company-specific news. Instead, the tech stock is likely moving higher today as investors regained some optimism in the market today, perhaps after two banks beat earnings expectations. As a result, the S&P 500 was up 2.7%, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite was up 3.3%, and Nvidia's shares had gained 4.3% as of 10:48 a.m. ET.

Killexams : Why Nutanix Stock Soared Today

What happened 

Shares of Nutanix (NTNX 0.72%) skyrocketed Friday morning after The Wall Street Journal reported that the cloud-computing company is exploring a sale after receiving some takeover interest.

Investors were excited about the potential for the company to make a deal, and had pushed Nutanix's share price up by 23.5% as of 11:23 a.m. ET. 

So what 

The WSJ article offered no specific details about the possible sale, but referenced "people familiar with the matter" as saying that Nutanix will likely target private equity and industry players.

Before Friday, Nutanix's shares were down by more than 40% over the past 12 months. But the morning's gains have helped offset some of that massive decline.  

With U.S. inflation at levels not seen in decades and the Federal Reserve rapidly hiking benchmark interest rates in an effort to get that price growth back in check, tech stocks as a class have been beaten down this year. Investors have been fleeing speculative growth stocks in search of safer assets.

Nutanix may look more appealing to potential buyers in the wake of the strong results it delivered on Aug. 31 for its fiscal 2022 fourth quarter. 

For the period, which ended on July 31, the company's annual recurring revenue increased by 37% to $1.2 billion, and its free cash flow was $23.2 million -- a notable reversal from its free cash flow loss of $42.2 million a year earlier. 

Additionally, management issued guidance for revenue in the range of $1.77 billion to $1.78 billion for its fiscal 2023, higher than analysts' consensus estimate of $1.66 billion. 

Now what

While investors are clearly excited about the possibility that the company will be sold, nothing is set in stone yet. If no buyer comes through with an acceptable offer, it's entirely possible that Nutanix's share price gains from Friday could be reversed. 

But for now, shareholders should be happy with the stock's quick jump and keep a close eye out for more details about a potential sale.

Killexams : Nutanix may be worth $27-$30/share in a takeover - analyst

Nutanix (NASDAQ:NTNX) appears to be more receptive to a takeover approach and the company may see $27-$30/share in a deal after a WSJ report on Friday that the company is considering a sale after interest, according to Piper Sandler. Nutanix shares popped 24% on the news.

IBM-Red Hat (IBM), Cisco (CSCO), HP Enterprise (HPE) or private equity are the most likely buyers for Nutanix (NTNX), Piper Sandler analyst James Fish wrote in a note on Friday. The $27-$30/share price equals a multiple of 4-4.5x CY2023 recurring revenue. A $30 deal for NTNX would represent a 15% premium to its current price and a 42% premium to its share price on Thursday, prior to the WSJ report.

"We see this takeout discussion as helping to create a floor on the stock & would continue to buy here," Fish, who has an overweight rating and $29 price target on Nutanix wrote.

The WSJ news comes after some corporate governance changes announced late last month spurred some renewed takeover speculation. One of the biggest announcements was the declassification of the company's board structure and the elimination of the super majority vote requirement.

Some private equity deals in the cloud space have averaged around a ~5x premium, which would imply a price of $34/share for Nutanix (NTNX), though Nutanix is in storage and has lower profitability than most other of those companies that were acquired, according to Piper's Fish.

Needham analyst Michael Cikos earlier this month wrote that possible strategic buyers for Nutanix (NTNX) include Cisco (CSCO), HP Enterprise (HPE) and cloud players such as Amazon's (AMZN) AWS and Google (GOOGL) Cloud. The analyst highlighted that Nutanix former CEO reportedly turned down bids from Cisco and HPE in 2016 before Nutanix (NTNX) had its IPO.

Killexams : Nutanix Launches Cloud Clusters (NC2) on Microsoft Azure

Customers Can Seamlessly Extend Nutanix Environment to Microsoft Azure

Nutanix NTNX, a leader in hybrid multicloud computing, announced today the general availability of Nutanix Cloud Clusters (NC2) on Microsoft Azure, extending its hybrid cloud environment to Microsoft Azure dedicated bare metal nodes.

NC2 on Azure offers a seamless hyperconverged infrastructure and unified management spanning private and public cloud environments to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption. NC2 on Azure enables customers to deploy and manage their workloads in their own Azure account and VNet enabling them to keep the operating model simple and consistent between Azure and on-premises.

With license portability of Nutanix term-based software and the ability to leverage all Microsoft Azure benefits, NC2 on Azure provides customers the investment protection and choice to run their workloads in a hybrid cloud environment.

"Organizations are embracing hybrid multicloud to easily scale from on-prem to the public cloud, optimize costs for performant and secure workloads, and tap into a flexible subscription model," said Rajiv Ramaswami, President and CEO of Nutanix. "NC2 on Azure gives our customers a frictionless on-ramp to Azure with consistent management of apps and data across their hybrid multicloud environment."

"While public cloud has solidified as a crucial investment for businesses, many customers need to run and manage workloads across public and private cloud environments," said Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud + AI Group, Microsoft. "NC2 on Azure provides consistent management for businesses' infrastructure across on-premises and cloud, reduces network latency, and increases cost efficiency."

Customers can now run workloads on NC2 on Azure and manage Azure instances from Nutanix's management interface. This enables customers to run hybrid workloads seamlessly across private clouds and Microsoft Azure without needing to re-architect their applications. The expected result is simplified and consistent IT operations across clouds, hybrid cloud adoption in hours, and lower total cost of ownership when compared to other cloud deployment solutions.

Killexams : Report: Hybrid cloud software maker Nutanix is exploring a sale

Nutanix Inc., a major maker of software for managing cloud and on-premises infrastructure, is reportedly exploring a sale.

The Wall Street Journal today cited people familiar with the matter as saying that Nutanix began weighing a sale after receiving takeover interest. However, it’s reportedly “far from certain” that a sale will take place. 

The report didn’t specify the potential buyer or buyers who expressed interest in purchasing Nutanix. However, the Journal’s sources suggested that Nutanix may seek to secure bids from other prospective acquirers. The company is reportedly “expected to target” private equity firms, as well as fellow market players in the tech industry.

Nasdaq-traded Nutanix sells a collection of software products that organizations use to manage their compute, storage and network infrastructure. Nutanix’s software can be installed in public cloud environments to ease day-to-day maintenance tasks. The company also offers versions of its products that run on hyperconverged infrastructure appliances, which combine computer, storage and network equipment in a single chassis that companies can deploy on-premises.

Nutanix went public in 2016. In the years since, the company has expanded its focus to several new market segments. 

Nutanix in 2018 launched a service called Era that can help organizations manage their database deployments. In 2020, it debuted a managed Kubernetes platform that reduces the amount of manual work needed to operate software container environments.

One of the existing additions to the company’s product portfolio, Nutanix Data Lens, helps companies manage unstructured data. It enables administrators to centrally monitor how business records are used and detect potential ransomware attacks. The service also eases several other tasks, including the process of moving data stored on-premises to the cloud.

Nutanix generated revenue of $385.5 million in its most recent fiscal quarter ended July 31, significantly more than what analysts had expected. The company’s revenue guidance for the current quarter and its 2023 fiscal year surpassed expectations as well. Nutanix says its technology is used by more than 22,000 organizations worldwide.

According to the Journal, it’s believed that a potential sale would value Nutanix significantly higher than its Thursday market capitalization of about $5 billion. Today, shares of the company jumped more than 23% in trading on the report that it may be acquired. The steep share price jump suggests that investors also expect Nutanix to fetch a significant premium in any prospective acquisition.

The report of the potential acquisition comes amid an effort by the company to shift from selling software licenses to a subscription-centric business model. Nutanix reported that annual contract value bookings, a metric tied to subscription sales, grew 10% last quarter. Annual recurring revenue increased 37% year-over-year.

Killexams : What Is Going on With Nutanix (NTNX) Stock Today?

InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Nutanix (NASDAQ:NTNX) stock is climbing over 18% in pre-market trading after The Wall Street Journal indicated that the company could be acquired. NTNX offers cloud services to businesses.

Another provider of cloud services, VMware (NYSE:VMW), agreed to be taken over by Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) for $61 billion earlier this year.

More Information About the Potential Deal

A number of entities have told Nutanix that they would consider buying it, and NTNX is expected to look to sell itself to a private equity firm or another cloud infrastructure provider, The Journal reported, citing unnamed sources.

But an acquisition may very well not materialize the newspaper added, noting that the takeover price would be more than $5 billion, which is Nutanix’s current market capitalization.

An Analyst’s Prior Take on a Potential Takeover

After Nutanix announced changes to its governance rules earlier this month, Needham analyst Michael Cikos wrote on Oct. 3 that: “At best, we see [the] announcement as further opening the door to suitors as an acquisition candidate.” Among the potential acquirers of Nutanix are: private equity firm Bain Capital, Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL), and HP Enterprise (NYSE:HPE), the analyst stated.

Background on Nutanix and NTNX Stock

 Legion Partners Asset Management LLC, known as “an activist hedge fund,” has a stake of over 7% in NTNX, while private equity firm Bain Capital bought $750 million of Nutanix’s convertible notes in 2020.

In August, Nutanix reported significantly stronger-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter results. However, the company’s revenue still fell 1.3% year-over-year, while it reported a loss per share of 67 cents.

On two positive notes, its annual contract value (ACV) billings climbed 27% YOY, while it generated a positive free cash flow of $23.2 million, versus a free cash flow loss of $42.2 million during the same period a year earlier.

Killexams : Nutanix and Microsoft partner to simplify infrastructure deployment and management to support modern applications

In the post-pandemic era, enterprises are looking for elasticity, agility and the ability to drive innovation without upfront investments. Given that organizations have an on-premises footprint for regulatory or data reasons, hybrid cloud has emerged as something of an ideal operating model.

Nutanix is meeting this need with its Nutanix Cloud Clusters on Azure. The solution makes it simple to extend on-prem Nutanix to any Microsoft Azure region by moving applications and workloads without refactoring or retooling, according to Thomas Cornely (pictured, left), senior vice president of product management at Nutanix Inc.

“What we do is we extend the Nutanix operating model to workloads running in Azure using the same core stack that you’re running on-premises,” he stated. “So once you have a cluster deployed in NC2 on Azure, it’s going to look like the same cluster that you might be running at the edge or in your own data center using the same tools, using the same admin.”

Cornely; Eric Lockard (pictured, right), corporate vice president of Azure Specialized Workloads at Microsoft; and Induprakas Keri (pictured, center), senior vice president of HCI and chief product security officer of Nutanix, spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Dave Vellante during a special broadcast, titled “Accelerate Hybrid Cloud With Nutanix and Microsoft.” They discussed how NC2 on Azure delivers an easy, secure and seamless hybrid cloud by offering the same performance, stack, automation, workflows and networking across on-prem and cloud environments.

In a separate interview, Alvaro Celis, vice president of global ISV commercial solutions at Microsoft, and Michal Lesiczka, vice president of the cloud and database partner ecosystem at Nutanix, spoke with theCUBE industry analyst Lisa Martin. They discussed the partnership between Nutanix and Microsoft and why hybrid cloud is a perfect fit for enhanced scalability, flexibility and app modernization. (* Disclosure below.)

Providing a consistent infrastructure and management plane

Not only does NC2 on Azure simplify cloud migration, but it also provides Elastic Disaster Recovery. As a result, the ultimate vision is to make the cloud journey easy without rewriting applications, as well as extending some of the cloud capabilities down to the on-prem infrastructure, according to Cornely.

“We’re doing on-premises IT disaster recovery and something that we refer to as Elastic Disaster Recovery, being able to go and actually configure a secondary site to protect your on-premises workloads,” he explained. “With investments that we’ve done together with Azure Arc, for example, we’re really extending the Azure control plane down onto on-premise Nutanix clusters and bringing the capabilities that provides to the Nutanix customer, as well as various Azure services like our data services and Azure SQL Server.”

NC2 on Azure takes the challenge of “remodeling” away because applications are shifted to the cloud as they are. This makes the cloud journey easier, given that enterprises are able to access Azure services from the same application running on an NC2 cluster, according to Keri.

“One of the things that you have done really well with the NC2 on Azure is that NC2 is not something that sits by Azure’s side; it’s fully integrated into the Azure Fabric, especially the software-defined networking, SDN piece,” he said. “Your management claim looks the same, your high-performance notes, the NVMe notes, they look the same.”

Despite the complexity of hybrid cloud, NC2 on Azure makes it simpler because a similar operating model is deployed at the edge, on-prem and in the public cloud. Furthermore, a lift-and-shift approach is employed, according to Cornely.

“We allow teams to go and basically have a solution that allows you to go and take any application running on-premises and move it as-is to any Azure region where NC2 is available,” he added.

Even though public cloud has a bunch of inherent advantages, such as being able to innovate without significant upfront costs, Lockard believes retaining some workloads on-prem is being driven by sovereignty and data-gravity reasons. As a result, the need for hybrid cloud becomes more pressing.

“There is a trend toward public cloud, but you know not everything can go to the cloud, especially right away,” he pointed out. “So, really, hybrid is the way to achieve the best of both worlds, really to kind of leverage the assets and investments that customers have on-premises but also take advantage of the cloud for bursting, originality or expansion, especially coming out of the pandemic.”

Since NC2 is an infrastructure layer, Keri believes it enhances and makes security and management easier through the company’s Prism solution, which provides an automated control plane that uses machine learning to support predictive analytics and automated data movement. Furthermore, it tackles the network complexity, because users are provided with a virtual private cloud.

“Down the road, if you have a containerized application, you’ll actually be able to take it from on-prem and run it on NC2,” Keri stated. “The NC2 offering itself is an infrastructure-level offering. And the trick is that the storage that you’re used to, the high-performance storage that defines Nutanix to begin with, the hypervisor that you’re used to, all of them are available to you on NC2 in Azure the same way that they used to do on-prem.”

Here’s the complete video interview with Thomas Cornely, Induprakas Keri and Eric Lockard:

An innovation journey: Doing more with less

Since the business context has significantly changed, especially in the post-pandemic era, enterprises have become conscious about cost and efficiency. NC2 on Azure accelerates the cloud journey, given that organizations have different amounts of pressure, priorities and imperatives, according to Celis.

“The Nutanix Cloud Clusters are often the fastest way on which customers will be able to do that journey into the cloud, because it’s very consistent with environments that they already know and use on-premise,” he noted. “And once they go into the cloud, then they have all the benefits of scale, agility, resiliency, security and cost benefits that they’re looking for.”

The foundation of the partnership between Nutanix and Microsoft has been customer centricity, Lesiczka pointed out, adding that this has been instrumental in enabling the hybrid cloud concept to see the light of day.

“We actually entered a partnership a couple years ago, so we’ve been working on this solution for quite a while,” he said. “But really our ultimate goal from day one was really to make our customers’ journeys to hybrid cloud simpler and faster. So really for both companies, I think our goal is being that trusted partner for our customers in their innovation journey.”

By combining the advanced capabilities of Nutanix and Microsoft, Lesiczka believes the silos between networking and computed storage are broken down. As a result, operations get simplified and Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure has been instrumental in the materialization of hybrid cloud.

“If you look at Azure at Microsoft, they’re truly best-in-class cloud infrastructure with cutting-edge services and innovation and really global scale,” Lesiczka explained. “So when you think about those two combinations, that’s really powerful for customers to be able to take their applications — whether they’re on-prem, in the cloud or even at the edge — and really combining all those various hybrid scenarios.”

Value addition and delivering consistency is at the heart of the Nutanix-Microsoft partnership, according to Celis. As a result, scalability, performance, resilience and elasticity are benefits when utilizing hybrid cloud.

“When you see two companies coming together with the mission of empowering customers and with the customer at the center and trying to solve real problems — in this case, how to drive hybrid cloud and what is the best approach for them — opening more opportunities is extremely inspiring,” Celis said. “So how do we combine our capabilities between Nutanix and Microsoft to be sure that that hybrid cloud journey that everyone is going to take can be simplified?”

Since the North Star of the partnership is to continue to make it easy for enterprises to adopt, migrate and modernize their applications, Lesiczka believes NC2 on Azure has set the ball rolling. In fact, the preview of NC2 on Azure was oversubscribed, indicating a high demand for the product. Working from the customers backwards has also been an ideal stepping stone.

“Like you mentioned, we’ve had a great preview, oversubscribed,” Lesiczka noted. “We had lots of, not only customers, but also partners battle-testing the solution. We’ve been working with partners like TCS and Citrix, where they share the same goal as Microsoft and Nutanix. So they’re going to be leveraging NC2 on Azure to really provide those hybrid cloud experiences for their solutions, building on top of the work that we’ve done together.”

Killexams : Nutanix stock rallies 25% on speculation of sale

Nutanix Inc. shares rallied Friday following a report that the hyperconverged-infrastructure company is looking for a possible sale of the company.

Nutanix shares surged 24.6% to close at $26.35, near their intraday high, following a report by The Wall Street Journal that said the company is exploring a sale following recent takeover interest. That move just fell short of the stock’s recent best one-day performance of a 29% gain on Sept. 1. following a strong quarterly report and outlook. The last time shares closed north of $25 was in early May.

Nutanix is a cloud-software company that specializes in hyperconverged infrastructure, which essentially combines computer storage and servers in a hybrid-cloud product that allows businesses to access on-site computing power as well as public-cloud assets.

Barclays analyst Tim Long, who has an overweight rating and a $25 price target, said it’s plausible Nutanix is looking for a private equity buyer or a strategic fit, and with historical software premiums, can expect offers in the $27 to $30 a share range.

“Nutanix is targeting long-term transformational changes that are tougher to execute as a public company, which is subject to scrutiny quarter to quarter,” Long said. “Getting bought by PE could afford Nutanix the opportunity to prove out its Go-to-Market (GTM) and product strategy with a longer time horizon.”

A strategic acquisition also makes sense, Long said, given Nutanix has enough revenue scale and a strong customer base.

In a recent note, J.P. Morgan analyst Pinjalim Bora, who has an overweight rating and an overweight rating, said Nutanix is benefitting from “a robust renewals portfolio which is expected to gain steam over the next several quarters and a higher than normal backlog build exiting FY22 .”

“We also think, the general availability of Nutanix Clusters on Azure, announced this week at Microsoft Ignite, could act as a potential medium-term growth catalyst enabling Nutanix to, finally, realize its vision of becoming a truly hybrid-multi-cloud platform,” Bora said.

In a recent note, PiperJaffray analyst James Fish, who has an overweight rating and a $25 price target, said the competitive landscape has become more favorable to Nutanix lately.

“Nutanix’s main competitor, VMware, has been acquired by Broadcom creating a favorable competitive landscape and potential for sales reps to come to Nutanix. In addition, the established partnerships with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. & [International Business Machine Corp.’s ] RedHat leads to further growth avenues and better positioning together against VMware,” Fish said.

Shares are down 17% year to date, compared with a 25% drop in the S&P 500 index and a 34% fall in the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index

Of the 16 analysts who cover Nutanix, nine have buy ratings and seven have hold ratings on the stock, and an average target price of $27.31.
