said it’s buying OSIsoft for $5 billion in a mostly cash deal to expand its position in industrial software. Aveva is buying the company that’s 53% held by its founder and 45% held by SoftBank
to create a company with revenue of about £1.2 billion and Adjusted EBIT of around £330 million, or a 28% margin. Aveva shareholder Schneider Electric
which holds 60% of the U.K. company, is voting for the deal and will participate in the $3.5 billion sale of discounted shares, or rights issue, to fund the acquisition. OSIsoft’s founder, Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy, will become chairman emeritus and hold roughly 4% of the combined company.
Luminar is going to become publicly traded by merging with a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC. Luminar isn’t an electric-vehicle company. It enables autonomous driving.
