Going Private

In this month’s Investing in Identity series, we take a hard look at the latest market activity including companies (and people!) taking companies from public to private.

  • Twitter accepts Elon Musk’s $44B offer to take the social media giant private. Musk has been very upfront about his mission to reduce bots by “authenticating all real humans.” How will this reshape the social network for its 200MM users?
  • Sailpoint, the enterprise identity security giant, is being taken private by Thoma Bravo for $6.9B
  • LSEG is set to expand its global range of digital identity solutions through a recent acquisition of Global Data Consortium
