Private equity firms KKR and Clayton Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) to close deal Cloudera private for a valuation of 4.7 billion dollars, Bloomberg News reported Monday, citing someone familiar with the case.
The private equity giants are expected to finalize a deal on Tuesday to acquire the software company at $ 16 a share, up about 24% from its previous close, according to the report.
Cloudera – who has activist investor Carl Icahn as largest shareholder – has explored a sale since mid-2020 after receiving redemption interest, according to the report.
The Wall Street Journal had previously reported about the deal talks.
