EMA Impact Brief
CA's Acquisition of Veracode Brings a Technology Platform Success and Opportunity to the Marketplace

Abstract:
CA Technologies announced its intent to acquire Veracode, a SaaS platform and application security testing (AST) vendor, for $614M USD. Veracode is a leader in the AST space with capabilities in web, mobile, and third-party security testing. What really brings value to CA in the transaction is that Veracode is not only a leader in the testing space, but has also been a force majeure in creating cloud services. Prior to its emergence in 2006, the AST world was based on-premises.  Since then, Veracode's change in the paradigm pushed more established on-premises vendors into the cloud space to continue competing. Veracode showed true vision and ability to execute in the space as demonstrated by their growth, especially over the last five years.

The transaction is expected to close in 1QFY18 pending customary approvals by the CA shareholders and federal regulators.
