Precisely, a leader in data integrity, is being acquired by Capital Group, L.P. (together with its affiliates, “Clearlake”) and TA Associates.
“Clearlake and TA Associates have experience partnering with software companies like Precisely that solve complex, critical business challenges and driving accelerated growth through operational best practices and M&A strategies to help them maximize their potential,” said Josh Rogers, CEO of Precisely. “I am excited to begin this next phase in the company’s evolution with our long-time partners at Clearlake and am thrilled to welcome TA and their expertise to the team. I also want to thank Centerbridge Partners for their guidance and support over these past four years, and I am delighted they will continue as a minority investor in Precisely.”
The history between Clearlake and Precisely dates back to 2015 when Clearlake acquired Syncsort (the predecessor company to Precisely), a specialized provider of data integration products.
In 2016, Syncsort acquired Trillium Software to expand its portfolio with leading data quality software, and Clearlake acquired Vision Solutions, a leading provider in data availability software solutions for IBM Power Systems.
In 2017, Clearlake sold Syncsort and Vision Solutions to Centerbridge Partners in a transaction that combined the two companies to increase scale and extend leading data management capabilities, and Clearlake maintained a minority equity stake in the company.
In December 2019, the company completed its acquisition of the software and data business from Pitney Bowes, adding leading location intelligence and data enrichment capabilities that cemented Precisely as the global leader in data Iintegrity.
Josh Rogers, CEO of Precisely, will continue to lead the company supported by the existing management team. Upon closing of the transaction, Clearlake and TA Associates will become majority shareholders in Precisely. Centerbridge Partners, the current majority shareholder in Precisely, will retain a minority equity stake. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
