Pivotal Software Inc. Chief Executive Officer Robert Mee said his company will continue to benefit from its relationship to Dell Technologies Inc. after its initial public offering Friday.

Pivotal was once part of a joint venture with EMC Corp., VMware Inc. and General Electric Co., becoming part of Dell after the company bought EMC in 2016. While Mee said Michael Dell and his company exerted “zero influence” or “pressure” to spur the IPO, Dell has been exploring strategic options for its corporate structure as it contends with a massive debt burden.
