ITEM 8.01 – Other Events.


On June 2, 2005, at a duly convened special meeting, the stockholders of Concord Communications, Inc. (“Concord”) voted to approve the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated April 7, 2005 by and among Concord, Computer Associates International, Inc. (“Computer Associates”) and Minuteman Acquisition Corp.  The closing condition relating to the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the U.S. Hart-Scott Rodino Improvements Act of 1976, as amended has not been satisfied.  Concord expects to consummate the transaction promptly upon expiration or termination of the waiting period.  The waiting period is expected to expire at 11:59 p.m. on June 6, 2005.  Absent early termination, the transaction could be consummated as early as June 7, 2005.  Following the closing, Concord will request that the Nasdaq National Market delist Concord's common stock effective as of the close of business on the date of closing.
