HPE to acquire SimpliVity for $650 million

Commentary

HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) has agreed to acquire SimpliVity for $650 million to expand its existing infrastructure, automation and cloud services. SimpliVity is one of the major players in the space called hyperconverged infrastructure, a type of infrastructure that tightly combines compute, storage and networking into a single system. According to analysts, the acquisition was a great deal for HPE. After all, SimpliVity used to be valued at $1 billion in 2015 and was even rumoured to have a purchase price of a whopping $3.9 billion a few months ago. If so, HPE has succeeded in purchasing a top-rated startup at a very low price.

DraftKings raises $150 million

Commentary

After having one of its employees accused of insider-trading in 2015, DraftKings, one of the biggest names in fantasy football sports, has received $153 million in fresh funding from Revolution Growth, the venture firm owned by AOL founder Steve Case and Ted Leonsis, owner of Washington Capitals and Wizards. The capital infusion came just a few months before the start of the new NFL season. Although the company’s valuation was not announced in the news, research firm Eilers & Krejcik Gaming estimates DraftKings is valued at north of $1 billion, which is significantly lower than its $2 billion valuation in 2015. While DraftKings did not clarify how it will use its latest capital injection, critics guess the money will be used to boost advertising as the gaming giant seeks to recover from a year of legal scrutiny.
