Absolute Software the only provider of self-healing, intelligent security solutions announced the successful completion of its acquisition by an affiliate of Crosspoint Capital Partners, LP (Crosspoint Capital), a leading private equity investment firm focused on the cybersecurity, privacy and infrastructure software markets.
On May 11, 2023, an affiliate of Crosspoint Capital and Absolute Software announced that they had entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which an affiliate of Crosspoint Capital would acquire Absolute Software for $11.50 per Common Share in cash, corresponding to an enterprise value of approximately US$870 million, inclusive of the debt.
“We are very excited about this acquisition and working with Crosspoint Capital to further strengthen our unique position in the market and in delivering the next generation of Resilience,” said Christy Wyatt, Absolute President and Chief Executive Officer. “This acquisition is only possible because of the outstanding contributions from our employees, the support of our customers, and the powerful ecosystem of OEM partners around Absolute. I look forward to partnering with Crosspoint and to our next chapter as a privately held company with the support and expertise of the Crosspoint Capital team.”
“Protection of roaming assets is a core requirement of all cyber resilience initiatives. In the post pandemic world, assets loaded with controlled information and access privileges spend most of their time outside the security framework of corporate IT,” said Greg Clark, Managing Partner, Crosspoint Capital. “We expect a significant shift in budget allocation to address the increased risk associated with the new work paradigm, which we believe creates a lasting tailwind for Absolute Software’s core products. We are excited to partner with this outstanding company.”
An affiliate of Crosspoint acquired all of the outstanding common shares of Absolute for US$11.50 per share by way of a statutory plan of arrangement. As a result of the completion of the acquisition, Absolute’s common shares will be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq Global Select Market and Absolute will cease to be a reporting issuer in the applicable U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions. Full details of the arrangement and certain other matters are set out in the management proxy circular of Absolute under its issuer profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.com and EDGAR.
