THE COMPANY: New Relic is a software-as-a-service company that delivers a software platform for customers to collect telemetry data.

THE ACQUISITION:  On July 31, 2023, New Relic announced that it had agreed to be acquired by Francisco Partners and TPG for $87.00 per share.  But as Reuters reported days later, “[b]uyout firms Francisco Partners and TPG (TPG.O) saved hundreds of millions of dollars in their $6.5 billion deal to buy New Relic (NEWR.N) by walking away from negotiations with the business software company in May and then returning two months later with a lower offer, people familiar with the matter said.”  In addition, Lew Cirne, Founder and Executive Chairman of New Relic, will be rolling over approximately 40% of his beneficial shareholdings along with the buyers of New Relic, which places him on the buy-side of the acquisition.  If this buyout is consummated, New Relic common stock will be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange and deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
