Read MoreHide Full Article

Model N Inc. (MODN - Free Report) and Vista Equity Partners have inked a definitive buyout agreement. Per the deal, Vista will acquire MODN for approximately $1.25 billion. The merger signals a strategic move in the enterprise software domain.

Vista, a prominent global investment firm, will procure all the outstanding shares of Model N common stock at $30.00 per share in an all-cash transaction. This offer, constituting a premium of around 23% over the 30-day volume weighted average share price prior to the announcement, underscores Vista's commitment to recognizing Model N's value.

The transaction delivers immediate cash value to stockholders and aligns with the company's long-term objectives. For Model N, the acquisition by Vista opens doors to enhanced resources, positioning it for sustained growth and market leadership in the years to come. Vista's recognition of Model N's expertise in revenue management solutions for Life Sciences and advanced technology industries further solidifies the strategic fit.

Model N’s prospects in the Life Sciences and High Tech vertical are bright owing to the increasing ineffectiveness of legacy systems. Companies using legacy systems like spreadsheets are finding it difficult to keep pace with the current industry trends that include shorter product lifecycles, increasing compliance & regulatory controls, and growing volumes of transactional data.

Model N’s cloud-based revenue management solutions are also well-suited to address the current unique needs of these industries. The company’s solutions provide higher return on investment as well as plug gaps in the end-to-end revenue management process that legacy systems fail to do. This improves the top-line growth of the companies, in turn boosting the adoption of Model N’s solutions.

The acquisition, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, is expected to conclude in mid-2024. Upon finalization, Model N will transition into a privately held entity, ceasing its listing on public markets.

The stock has gained 22.1% in the past six months compared with the industry’s rise of 34.4%.
