Acquired on August 11, 2005, the LBO was backed with equity investment from Bain Capital Partners, The Blackstone Group, Goldman Sachs & Co., Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., Providence Equity Partners, Silver Lake and TPG, of which continue to control SunGard.
The Form 424 B3 filed by SunGard is often referred to as a pre-filing as it omits details on the issuer’s prospective size of its sale. Included though are up to date financials, including for the Q1 2015 period.
