CVC Capital Partners, ValueAct Continue To Consider Options In Respect Of Misys

Funds advised by CVC Capital Partners Ltd. and ValueAct Capital Master Fund, L.P. noted the recent announcement by Vista of its recommended cash offer for Misys Plc (MSY.L, MUSJF.PK).

Misys had announced today that it agreed to be acquired by an investment vehicle owned by US-based private equity firm Vista Equity Partners for 350 pence per share, totaling about 1.3 billion pounds.

CVC and ValueAct continue to consider their options in respect of Misys, including a possible recommended joint cash offer for the company and urge Misys shareholders to take no action at this time.

However, there can be no certainty that an offer will be made by CVC and ValueAct, nor, if made, that a deal will result.
