What about the possibility of a Dell EMC-VMware reverse merger? Would the channel benefit?

From a Tech Data point of view, we have really deep, strong partnerships with [both] organizations. I'm not qualified to speak for why Dell might do it or what the benefit might be. That's for Dell and their executive team to make those decisions. I don't think it would change the relationships that Tech Data has with Dell EMC and VMware in any way. It doesn't have much to do with how Tech Data sells their products. I don't think it would change much. But I'm not an expert on that. They continue to be some of our most important vendors we take to market, and we're one of their routes to market that they're focused on.
