Well, it took about 2 hours before Wyse delivered a response to the news of HP buying Neoware. That was almost too fast i think but certainly a quick response was ideal. Nice to see them moving quick.
HP makes a move in the thinclient market by acquiring two companies. Neoware in PA was $214M and they have a significant share of the hardware thin-client market. That's got to be interesting to Wyse.
Neoware Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: NWRE) agreed to acquire the thin-client business of TeleVideo Inc. (Pink sheets: TELV) for $5 million in cash plus an additional amount based upon performance, the two companies said Monday. The deal is to close in March.
