Legion Partners Comments on Reports of Nutanix’s Sale Process

Believes Reported Interest Reinforces that Nutanix’s Long-term Value Has Not Been Reflected in its Recent Stock Price

Encourages Board to Fully Explore All Potential Options – Particularly with Strategic Buyers – in Order to Achieve Best Outcome for All Stockholders

Legion Partners Asset Management, LLC, together with its affiliates (collectively, “we” or “Legion Partners”), a significant stockholder of Nutanix (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: NTNX), today commented on recent media reports that Nutanix has received interest from potential acquirers and is exploring a sale:

“Our recently disclosed engagement with Nutanix and the associated discussions around its business only served to reinforce our conviction that the Company’s trading price has for some time not appropriately reflected its full value. Nutanix should be valued at a multiple appropriate for the high-growth and high-quality enterprise subscription software company that it is, not like the hardware stock it has been recently valued as. As such, we are encouraged by the reports today that the Company has received interest from third parties and believe that, in light of this, the Board must properly evaluate alternatives including all potential partners.

Given Nutanix’s unique position and current industry dynamics, in our view, a strategic buyer would be the ideal partner for the Company. We encourage the Board to fully explore all options in order to achieve the best outcome for all stockholders and we will be observing the process closely.”
