Today, Im pleased to share the next exciting step in Cvents story!

morning we announced

that Cvent has agreed to be acquired for $1.65 billion in cash ($36/per share) by Vista Equity Partners, one of the largest private equity firms in the world. With more than $20 billion in committed capital, Vista has incredible conviction to the meetings and events space and has the financial strength to invest in Cvent now and in the future. Furthermore, Vista believes in the Cvent senior management team and knows the true source of our success is in our employees. We expect the deal to close in the next 60-90 days, subject to regulatory and stockholder approval. Upon closing, we will once again become a privately held company.

When a significant event like this occurs, it is only natural for questions to surface. We will be addressing some common questions and plan to go into greater detail during a mandatory, live-streamed, global town hall meeting at 10:15am EDT and 12:00pm EDT. An outlook calendar invitation will be sent out shortly.

Additionally, I have published a blog post detailing more information about our Cvent journey and what this acquisition means for our companys future. You can read it
