According to the Complaint, Cray designs and builds supercomputers, software for supercomputers, and storage and data management products. Cray’s products are used at national laboratories like Argonne National Laboratory, universities like the University of Western Australia, and corporations like GE.
On May 17, 2019, Cray and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company ("HPE") announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which HPE will acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Cray for $35.00 per share.

About the Company & Securities Data
"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.
In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
