CommVault Systems, Inc. Research Report

The shares of data storage provider CommVault Systems surged to record highs
today amid rumors of a possible takeover, rising 8.6 percent to $84.20 per
share. Analysts say a takeover for the growing company would make sense with
their enterprise data and information management software. One particular
analyst from Lazard Capital Markets even recommended buying shares with a
target price of $95, 24 percent higher than the average of analysts'
estimates. He said that investors and analysts alike are banking on the high
growth potential of the company, stating that its product would be a strategic
asset for any interested party. The Full Research Report on CommVault Systems,

Splunk Inc Research Report

Software maker Splunk is also being involved in takeover talks lately, and
analysts believe the company could command the software industry's highest
price tag in five years. The believe the company would give a prospective
buyer a leading position in the big data market, which IDC Corp. projects will
almost triple in revenue to about $24 billion by 2016. Possible buyers include
EMC Corp and VMware Inc, who are willing to pay for the company's relatively
high valuation level. Even International Business Machines is also being
thrown in as another prospective buyer, in which analysts see Splunk as a good
fit for the IT giant. Without assuming a premium, the acquisition of Splunk
already would be the priciest software deal since 2008, according to
Bloomberg. The Full Research Report on Splunk Inc - including full detailed
breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free

AVG Technologies NV Research Report

Security software maker AVG Technologies announced that J.R. Smith will step
down as chief executive to become a member of the Supervisory Board until a
successor is named. Chief Operating Officer John Giamatteo will take charge of
day-to-day operations in the meantime while the search for the successor
progresses, which will be managed by executive search firm SMPB. Analysts say
Smith left the company to work on growing a newer business, resulting to
downgrades by Morgan Stanley analysts to "Equal-weight" from "Overweight."
However, management predicts growth for revenue and for earnings per share
this year, after posting 30 percent less profit for 2012. The Full Research

Jive Software Inc Research Report

Jive Software has announced the opening of new offices in Hong Kong,
Singapore, and in the cities of Sydney and Melbourne in Australia. The maker
of Facebook-type social networks for businesses believes it would bring as
much as a 15 percent increase in workforce productivity for its customers in
the area, and 4 percent growth in the top line. Jive has previously worked
with a number of Asia-Pacific and global clients to help transform their
business processes, including Ace Insurance, Commonwealth Bank, PwC Australia
and REA Group. Meanwhile, the company expects a loss of $33 million to $37

MSCI Inc Research Report

MSCI has announced that it will sell its forensic accounting research arm CFRA
to a private investor for an undisclosed price. The deal is expected to close
within the next two months, subject to customary closing conditions. However
the deal is not expected to have a material impact on MSCI's results of
operations yet. The company just came from a previous acquisition of
performance reporting solutions provider InvestorForce in late January from
marketing firm ICG, for $23.5 million in cash. Management said InvestorForce's
performance reporting and peer benchmarking analytics complements MSCI's
performance measurement and risk management analytics products and services.
