Golub Capital recently announced that, as Administrative Agent, Joint Lead Arranger and Joint Bookrunner, it provided senior credit facilities to support the buyout of Aptean (or “the Company”) by TA Associates and Vista Equity Partners. The funds will be used to accelerate Aptean’s growth in the rapidly expanding global enterprise software market.

Aptean is a leading global provider of mission-critical, industry-specific enterprise software solutions. The Company provides resource planning, supply chain management and compliance solutions to more than 2,500 customers in over 54 countries. Aptean drives customers’ long-term success by delivering not only software solutions, but also experienced, knowledgeable support teams that work with customers to ensure results.

TA Associates and Vista Equity Partners will be equal partners and leverage their unique areas of expertise to help Aptean expand their product offerings and market presence, both organically and through acquisitions.

“We are thrilled to be leading the Aptean transaction on behalf of TA Associates and Vista Equity Partners, two of the top tier software sponsors in the industry,” said Spyro Alexopoulos, Managing Director on Golub Capital’s Middle Marketing Lending team.

“Golub Capital is a leader in software lending and has been a great partner to TA for many years,” said Hythem El-Nazer, Managing Director at TA Associates. “They impressed us with a creative and flexible financing solution to support our Aptean growth strategy.”

“The team at Golub Capital continues to provide innovative financing solutions, and we were able to take advantage of their growing capital markets capabilities to achieve a broadly syndicated execution with capacity for future acquisitions,” said Tony Marsh, Chief Capital Markets Officer at TA Associates.
