  • We are involved in litigation, investigations and regulatory inquiries and proceedings that could negatively affect us.
  • We may not be able to adequately protect our intellectual property rights.
  • Our use of “open source” software in our products could negatively affect our ability to sell our products and subject us to litigation.
  • The evolution of our business requires more complex go-to-market strategies, which involve significant risk.
  • Our success depends upon our ability to develop appropriate business and pricing models.
  • Our products and services are highly technical and may contain or be subject to other suppliers’ errors, defects or security vulnerabilities.
  • Our subscription and SaaS offerings, which constitute a growing portion of our business, and our initiatives to extend our data center virtualization and container platforms into the public cloud, involve various risks, including, among others, reliance on third-party providers for data center space and colocation services and on public cloud providers to prevent service disruptions.
  • Failure to effectively manage our product and service lifecycles could harm our business.
  • Our success depends on the interoperability of our products and services with those of other companies.
  • Disruptions to our distribution channels, including our various routes to market through Dell, could harm our business.
  • Joint ventures may not yield expected benefits and outcomes.
  • Non-compliance or perceived non-compliance with existing and evolving international and domestic privacy and data protection laws, regulations and standards could result in liability and adversely impact our business.

  • Problems with our information systems could interfere with our business and could adversely impact our operations.

  • Natural disasters, catastrophic events or geo-political conditions could disrupt our business.
  • Changes in accounting principles and guidance could result in unfavorable accounting charges or effects.
  • Our relationship with Dell may adversely impact our business and stock price.
  • Dell has the ability to prevent us from taking actions that might be in our best interest.
  • Dell has the ability to prevent a change-in-control transaction and may sell control of VMware without benefiting other stockholders.
  • We engage in related persons transactions with Dell that may divert our resources, create opportunity costs and prove to be unsuccessful.
  • Our business and Dell’s businesses overlap, and Dell may compete with us, which could reduce our market share.
  • Dell’s competition in certain markets may affect our ability to build and maintain partnerships.
  • We could be held liable for the tax liabilities of other members of Dell’s consolidated tax group, and compared to our historical results as a member of the EMC consolidated tax group, our tax liabilities may increase, fluctuate more widely and be less predictable.
  • We have limited ability to resolve favorably any disputes that arise between us and Dell.
  • Some of our directors have potential conflicts of interest with Dell.
  • We are a “controlled company” within the meaning of the New York Stock Exchange rules and, as a result, are relying on exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements that provide protection to stockholders of companies that are not “controlled companies.”
  • Dell’s ability to control our board of directors may make it difficult for us to recruit independent directors.
  • Our historical financial information as a majority-owned subsidiary may not be representative of the results of a completely independent public company.
  • If securities or industry analysts change their recommendations regarding our stock adversely, our stock price and trading volume could decline.
  • Anti-takeover provisions in Delaware law and our charter documents could discourage takeover attempts.
Management Discussion
  • Approximately 70% of our sales are denominated in the United States (“U.S.”) dollar. In certain countries, however, we also invoice and collect in various foreign currencies, principally euro, British pound, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, and Chinese renminbi. In addition, we incur and pay operating expenses in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. As a result, our financial statements, including our revenue, operating expenses, unearned revenue and the resulting cash flows derived from the U.S. dollar equivalent of foreign currency transactions, are affected by foreign exchange fluctuations.
  • Revenue from our subscription offerings consisted primarily of VMware’s VCPP cloud-based offerings that are billed to customers on a consumption basis and revenue from modern applications platform solutions and other offerings that are billed on a subscription basis. Revenue from our SaaS offerings consisted primarily of our Unified Endpoint Management mobile solution within Workspace ONE, our VMware Cloud on AWS offering, and newer SaaS offerings, such as our Carbon Black offerings, CloudHealth by VMware and VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud.
  • License revenue relating to the sale of on-premises licenses that are part of a multi-year contract is generally recognized upon delivery of the underlying license, whereas revenue derived from our subscription and SaaS offerings is recognized on a consumption basis or over a period of time.
