Enterprise information management (EIM) company OpenText is acquiring cloud data backup and protection service Carbonite in a deal worth $1.42 billion.Carbonite, which offers a number of data backup and protection services for consumers and businesses, had become the subject of significant takeover rumors over the past few months after its revenue dropped.CEO Mohamad Ali stepped down in July and was replaced on an interim basis by board chair Steve Munford.Boston-based Carbonite had raised nearly $200 million from big-name investors ahead of its 2011 IPO, and its shares soared well above its $10 IPO price to hit an all-time high of more than $40 last year, before falling to around $12 in August.Private equity firms, including Evergreen Coast Capital, KKR, and Vector Capital, were among the companies rumored to be circling Carbonite, but OpenText has now swooped in with an offer of $23 per share — a 78% premium on Carbonite’s September 5 closing price, before the media first reported that a sale could be in the cards.“Following expressions of interest from multiple parties, the Carbonite board conducted a thorough and comprehensive process, which included contact with a number of strategic and financial parties, to identify the best way to maximize shareholder value,” Munford said in a press release.
Coveo, an enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that meshes unified search, analytics, and machine learning to unlock insights contained within big data for businesses, has raised $227 million in a round of funding led by Omers, with participation from Evergreen Coast Capital, FSTQ, and IQ, among others.The company didn’t reveal its current valuation, except to say it’s now a “unicorn” (valued at over $1 billion), so the figure is likely at least 3 times more than its $370 million valuation last year.Moreover, Coveo revealed that Omers and other existing shareholders now own 15.5% of the company.Founded out of Quebec, Canada in 2005, Coveo can connect to data from myriad sources, including cloud storage services — Gmail, Lithium, Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce, Twitter, Zendesk, and YouTube — to help companies index all their content so it’s searchable from a single interface.Moreover, the technology allows online businesses, such as ecommerce platforms, to tailor their stores by combining visitor data with data from their existing databases, which can mean better personalized recommendations — less churn and more profit.Elsewhere, Coveo can help companies improve search through their own intranets and internal applications.
