Why Perforce Is Buying Delphix

Feb 15, 2024

Perforce Software (a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle backed by Francisco Partners and Clearlake Capital Group, L.P.) announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Delphix. The financial terms of the deal were undisclosed. Delphix’s Data Management software platform enables scalable automation, governance, and enterprise data compliance throughout the application lifecycle. And Delphix supports customers as they look to scale data usage for analytics and testing purposes, while releasing applications up to 200% faster. Its data virtualization and masking capabilities allow organizations to spin up, refresh, and tear down private and public cloud-based data environments more efficiently, enhancing application delivery pipelines. Adding Delphix builds on Perforce’s existing infrastructure automation offering through acceleration of on-demand delivery, self-service test environments, and continuous testing offerings to deliver Shift Left testing with accurate, compliant, and timely test data. And with this acquisition, Perforce continues demonstrating its commitment to providing customers with scaled DevOps solutions that help solve the world’s largest enterprises’ automation challenges. This acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second quarter of 2024. Centerview Partners acted as exclusive financial adviser to Delphix in connection with the transaction. KEY QUOTES: “The addition of Delphix to our portfolio adds critical data management capabilities that help enterprise organizations realize an automated and accelerated DevOps pipeline. In addition to data automation and compliance, we are also excited to provide our customers with the operational efficiencies and reduced costs afforded by the Delphix platform through lower storage expenditures and footprint. We look forward to working with the Delphix team to continue delivering data management innovation to our customers.” Jim Cassens, CEO of Perforce “We founded Delphix over 15 years ago to help companies automate data and accelerate digital transformation. Today, we enable data governance, compliance, and automation across the multicloud for many of the world’s biggest brands. As part of Perforce, we will be positioned to continue innovating and help more customers realize the strategic power of our data platform.” Jedidiah Yueh, CEO of Delphix “This strategic acquisition positions Perforce to harness the growing demand for enterprise- scale data management in testing, AI modeling, and analytics. The addition of Delphix further enhances the capabilities Perforce can offer to its valued customers, and we look forward to catalyzing this opportunity to drive continued momentum for the platform.” Evan Daar, Partner at Francisco Partners, and Sean Courtney, Senior Vice President at Clearlake Pulse 2.0 focuses on business news, profiles, and deal flow coverage.
