Alteryx, an Irvine, California-based software company developing data science and analytics products, today announced that it’s agreed to be acquired by private equity firms Clearlake Capital Group and Insight Partners in a deal worth $4.4 billion. Clearlake and Insight reportedly beat out Symphony Technology Group, another private equity firm, which Reuters reported several days ago had been vying for Alteryx. The Clearlake-Insight deal, which includes debt, values Alteryx’s equity at around $3.46 billion, reports Reuters — a 29.1% premium over the company’s closing share price on Friday. After raising tens of millions of dollars from VC firms including Toba Capital, Insight, Sapphire Ventures, ICONIQ Capital and Meritech Capital Partners, Alteryx went public on the NYSE in 2017. Today, Alteryx stands out as an industry leader with a differentiated platform that scales data democratization in a governed manner,” Stoecker said.
