Mcafee vs Symantec in our news:
2021. Investor consortium to acquire McAfee for $14B
Cybersecurity software company McAfee took another interesting twist today when an investor consortium consisting of six investment firms announced that they were purchasing the company for $14 billion. The investor group companies will each be providing financial and operational resources. How that will work isn’t completely clear. The company will certainly have a lot of bosses to deal with. It’s worth noting that McAfee built in a “go shop” provision into the deal, a fairly common practice that gives it 45 days to find a better price. While that is an unlikely outcome, the provision provides shareholders with some proof the company got the best deal it could for them.
2021. McAfee sells its enterprise business
Security firm McAfee is selling its enterprise business to a consortium led by the private equity firm Symphony Technology Group for $4 billion. It should pair well with RSA, another enterprise-focused security company the private equity firm purchased last February for $2 billion. McAfee President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Leav says that his company has decided to direct the firm’s resources to the consumer side of the business.
