Comments on: 3PAR battle is case of undisciplined cash vs. cash http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/08/27/3par-battle-is-case-of-undisciplined-cash-vs-cash/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ddumba http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/08/27/3par-battle-is-case-of-undisciplined-cash-vs-cash/comment-page-1/#comment-3473 Mon, 30 Aug 2010 10:39:20 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/columns/?p=3889#comment-3473 My feeling is that HP is just trying to deny Dell to take over 3Par. This comes from the speed at which HP is making decisions. While Dell may take 3-5 days to think through whether to up their bid or not, the moment they up it, HP takes just one day to trump it. This shows that their main objective is to fail Dell in their pursuit, and to me this is a factor of indiscipline on the part of HP.

Having that at the back of the mind, I feel 3Par investors are most like to benefit from in the long term with Dell rather than HP. Dell has the best interest of the 3Par shareholders at heart than HP.
