    • Bain and Golden Gate Capital have reportedly teamed up to make a bid for software provider Compuware (CPWR), whose market cap is $2.34B.
    • The private-equity firms agreed to acquire larger rival BMC Software (BMC) in May, although they wouldn't necessarily merge Compuware with BMC.
    • Bain and Golden Gate could face competition from Thoma Bravo and Vista Capital.
    • Any deal could represent an exit for activist investor Elliot Management, Compuware's largest shareholder with an 8.6% holding. Elliot tried to buy Compuware a year ago but was rebuffed.

The offer for the company is projected to be in the $6.5B range equating to between $45-50 per share. BMC could still decide not to sell itself, people familiar with the matter said.

    ServiceNow (NOW +7.4%) jumps after receiving a two-notch upgrade to Buy from UBS: the firm cites valuation, growing adoption of ServiceNow's cloud-based IT service desk platform, and the end of major post-IPO share lockups. Yesterday, SA contributor Max Returns declared ServiceNow a buy for many of the same reasons, and noted the company is taking share from incumbents CA and BMC. A whopping 55.3% of the float was shorted as of Jan. 31. (UBS' October downgrade)
