Red Hat, Inc. Key Developments
Red Hat May Seek Acquisiitons
Feb 9 16
Frank Calderoni, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) said, "Right now not to say we won't but we feel that we've got a very broad portfolio for a tremendous amount of opportunity as we think about the continuation of this growth model going forward. Middleware, everything I talked about before as far as the PaaS and the infrastructure of the service Middleware on the management and so forth, we want to make sure that we can focus on that. If there are other acquisitions that become tuck-ins that we need from a customer standpoint that would be, looking at big acquisitions is not necessarily what Red Hat has done nor do we think about that. Again, I am not here saying we won't but that's not been part of our strategy."
