SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Brodsky & Smith Announces an Investigation of VMware, Inc. (NYSE – VMW)

BALA CYNWYD – July 18, 2022 /Globe Newswire/ – Law office of Brodsky & Smith announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of VMware, Inc. (“VMware” or the “Company”) (NYSE – VMW) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of federal and state law in connection with the Company’s agreement to be acquired by Broadcom Inc. (“Broadcom”) (Nasdaq – AVGO). Under the terms of the merger agreement, VMW shareholders will receive $142.50 in cash or 0.2520 shares of Broadcom common stock for each VMW share owned, representing an implied per-share merger consideration of approximately $121.40 based upon Broadcom’s July 13, 2022 closing price of $481.73.

The investigation concerns whether the VMWare Board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to conduct a fair process, and whether Broadcom is paying too little for the Company. For example, the deal consideration is below the 52-week high of $167.83 for the Company’s shares.
