HP Enterprise In Talks To Sell Software Unit To Thoma Bravo
Sep 1 16
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (NYSE:HPE) is in talks with Thoma Bravo LLC to sell its software division, hoping it can fetch between $8 billion and $10 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. HPE has received offers for the software unit of as much as $7.5 billion in a sale process managed by investment bank Goldman Sachs Group Inc, the sources said this week. Thoma Bravo has made the highest offer for the assets among the private equity firms that held discussions with HPE, though significant discrepancies in valuation expectations persist and no deal is certain, the people said. Other private equity firms that made offers for the software assets include Vista Equity Partners Management LLC, The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) and TPG Capital LP, the people said. It was still possible that HPE would turn to a buyout firm other than Thoma Bravo to pursue a deal, or that Thoma Bravo would buy only some of the assets, the people said. The sources asked not to be identified because the negotiations are confidential. HPE, Goldman Sachs, Thoma Bravo, Vista Equity, Carlyle and TPG declined to comment.
