Q: What will existing stockholders of AspenTech own after the Transactions?,
page 6

3.       Revise to state that following the transactions, stockholders of
AspenTech will own shares
         in a "controlled company" under Nasdaq. Clarify that certain outcomes
of corporate
         actions of New AspenTech will be controlled by Emerson and certain
approval rights will
         continue as long as Emerson beneficially owns a certain percentage of
outstanding shares.
Risk Factors
Ownership interests will not be adjusted if there is a change in the value of
AspenTech..., page

4.       Revise this risk factor to specify that the number of shares AspenTech
shareholders will
         receive under the transaction agreement is based on a fixed exchange
ratio. Discuss any
         risks related to the fact that the exchange ratio will not be adjusted
to reflect changes in
         the market price of AspenTech shares before the closing date and that
the value of the
         shares surrendered in the transactions may be higher or lower than the
value of such
         shares at an earlier date.
Following the completion of the Transactions, Emerson will be prohibited,
subject to certain
exceptions, from transferring shares..., page 38

5.       Expand your risk factor to disclose risks to New AspenTech's stock
price or its ability to
         maintain Nasdaq continuing listing requirements after the expiration
of Emerson's
         standstill period or the exercise of Emerson's pre-agreed procedures
to acquire shares of
         New AspenTech.

refer to Emerson,

accordingly. In addition,
         expand the description of the transaction timeline to:

                identify the material synergies that were discussed at certain
points in the timeline
              and quantify them as appropriate;

                provide the reason why, at the February 19 meeting, the
AspenTech Board
              determined that the upside case of the AspenTech February 19

              most likely case;

U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Transactions, page 96

12.      We note your disclosure on page 71 that the AspenTech Board considered
favorably the
         expectation that AspenTech stockholders generally will not recognize
gain or loss for U.S.
         federal income tax purposes as a result of the exchange of their
AspenTech common stock
         for common stock of Newco in the transactions (to the extent
stockholders have gain in
         excess of the amount of cash consideration paid in the transactions).
In light of the
         materiality of the stock for stock exchange in the merger not being
taxable to AspenTech
         shareholders, a tax opinion supporting the intended tax treatment
appears to be required
         by Item 601(b)(8) of Regulation S-K. For guidance, please refer to
Staff Legal Bulletin
         19 (October 12, 2011). Further, we also note your disclosure that
AspenTech, Emerson,
         Newco, and their respective affiliates each intend to take the
position that the transactions,
         taken together, qualify as a transaction described in Section 351 of
the U.S. Internal
         Revenue Code of 1986. Advise whether a tax opinion will be provided to
support this
         conclusion. Lastly, we note that the Form of Tax Matters Agreement
describes that the
         pre-closing restructuring, the Emerson contributions, and the merger
exchange are
         intended to qualify for the "Intended Tax Treatment." Please summarize
the material tax
         aspects of the pre-closing restructuring and the Emerson contribution
in your disclosure
         and advise whether the tax opinion referenced in the Tax Matters
Agreement will be
         delivered in connection with the closing of the transactions.
