Barracuda to Partners: Stay the Course

Security and storage vendor won’t comment on reports that the company is researching potential buyers, but says it remains committed to its partners

Barracuda Networks Inc., of Campbell, California, won’t comment on reports first surfacing yesterday that it’s researching a potential sale of the company with bankers at Morgan Stanley, but wants its partners to know that it remains committed to them.

Our business grew 14% in revenue for Q3, which is a direct reflection of our partners who are overall seeing their Barracuda business grow as well.”

That triggered a sell-off the next day of Barracuda shares, which have been declining since last summer and remain down 30 percent from their pre-report price in January.

All that financial turmoil hasn’t slowed Barracuda’s product teams any, however.
