Investment fund to acquire RedPrairie
RedPrairie, a provider of workforce, logistics and transportation management software, said Monday it has agreed to sell the company to New Mountain Capital, a New York private equity group.
The privately held technology firm, which had filed to go public in November, said the investment by one of the group's funds would enable it to continue its positive growth through further product offerings and entering new international markets.
New Mountain Capital intends to keep RedPrairie's management team in place.
New Mountain Capital manages several funds with combined investments of about $8.5 billion. The company says on its Web site that it invests in high-performance companies in industries that can succeed during both up and down economic times. Its portfolio includes Intermarine, a large project cargo ocean carrier.
RedPrairie, based in Waukesha, Wis., is currently controlled by Francisco Partners, a San Francisco-area capital management firm.
