CA Technologies, eh?

CAT -- The new acronym?

CAT: Definition
1) A small carnivorous mammal (Felis catus or F. domesticus) domesticated since early times as a catcher of rats and mice and as a pet and existing in several distinctive breeds and varieties.


OK, so ... I wonder how many "rats" they attracted? I can think of a few.

And, I wonder which "breeds" they attracted? I can think of a few.

Then, of course, there's the old saying about how "somebody let the CAT out of the bag".

Ya think Sanjay Kumar was serving his 12 years in that bag, and is now free to roam the halls of the public stock market again?

Sure is a pretty day.

These guys sold Sterling Software to CA back in 2000. I also think these were the same guys that owned UCC way way back and sold that off to CA as well in the early 80's.

Charles bails out of being the majority owner of the Islanders. Maybe he saw the $$$ the NBA Clippers went for? Naw, this franchise missed the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons. In sports, this kind of losing record usually indicates poor management. Bail out Charles when you can.. and he does!

No references here to Broadcom's acquisition of Computer Associates (CA) ??

November 5, 2018

What's a mere $18.9 Billion among friends?

"After the acquisition, Broadcom laid off former CA Technology workers in Silicon Valley. It also laid off 262 former CA Technology employees in Islandia, and some in Manhattan. "

theregister.co.uk

cbronline.com

businessinsider.com

And tons of other news items . . .

A list of CA's history of acquisitions is included in the following doc:

Capex Corporation -- 1982 -- Ahhh, yes. Many, many fond memories.

Sure is a pretty day.
