Check Point Software Technologies Seeks Acquisitions

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS:CHKP) is seeking acquisitions. Tal Payne, Chief Financial Officer, said, "We want to buy back the share, we think it's a good way to return to the shareholders and we've increased it significantly. So that's one use of the cash. But the cash remained the same although we acquired also two other companies this year. Remember though that Q1 is the strongest in terms of the cash flow. So, you will probably see it reducing throughout the rest of year. But you're right that the ballpark will stay similar. And the second reason that we need the cash is acquisition." Payne added, "We are very open to small acquisitions and to large acquisitions, this is not the problem. So, it's not the lack of appetite. The trick is how do you find, even if it's very, very large it has to make economical sense, it has to be good technology or very large installed base, it has to maybe give us geographical penetration or maybe vertical penetration, but it has to make sense. And it's very hard to find acquisition that make sense to us, but we keep looking and that's what we need the cash for."
