Desktop virtualization company Citrix has announced that it is being acquired by affiliates of Vista Equity Partners and Evergreen Coast Capital Corporation. 

Vista and Evergreen previously acquired TIBCO Software and they plan to merge the companies’ solutions together. This will add TIBCO’s analytics capabilities to Citrix’s digital workspace and application security suite, which will enable users to gain both the access and insights needed for digital transformation in remote or hybrid workplaces. 

“Over the past three decades, Citrix has established itself as the clear leader in secure hybrid work. Our market-leading platform provides secure and reliable access to all of the applications and information employees need to get work done, wherever it needs to get done. By combining with TIBCO, we will expand this platform and the outcomes our customers achieve,” said Bob Calderoni, Chair of the Citrix Board of Directors and Interim Chief Executive Officer and President. “Together with TIBCO, we will be able to operate with greater scale and provide a larger customer base with a broader range of solutions to accelerate their digital transformations and enable them to deliver the future of hybrid work. As a private company, we will have increased financial and strategic flexibility to invest in high-growth opportunities, such as DaaS, and accelerate its ongoing cloud transition.”
