  • Software company could be valued at about $2 billion

Private equity firm Vista Equity Partners is exploring options for its investment in U.K. financial software provider Misys, including an initial public offering, according to people familiar with the matter.

Vista is speaking to advisers and may also consider a sale, the people said, asking not to be named because the talks are private. A sale could value the business at about $2 billion, two of the people said. The deliberations are at an early stage, and no final decisions have been made, they said.
