The offer, which values Talend at approximately $2.4 billion, represents a premium of approximately 29% to Talend’s closing price on March 9 and an 81% premium to the volume weighted average price over the last twelve months. The Talend Board of Directors unanimously approved the memorandum of understanding.   Subject to and upon completion of the transaction, Talend would become a private company and continue investing in its cloud transition as well as products and solutions that serve the evolving data needs of its customers.   “We are pleased to move forward with Thoma Bravo, as the transaction will deliver compelling and certain cash value to Talend shareholders and significant strategic, long-term benefits for our customers, employees, and other stakeholders,” said Steve Singh, Chairman of the Board of Talend. “Our Board is focused on driving shareholder value and has periodically evaluated potential transaction alternatives in the context of our standalone plan over the past several years. With the successful advancement of our transformation effort led by our CEO over the past year, the Talend Board and management team conducted a targeted process with potential financial and strategic parties to determine the best path forward for the Company. We believe the transaction with Thoma Bravo validates the Talend team’s success in building a data market leader.”   “The last twelve months have underscored the importance of digital transformation and the unique and vital role Talend plays in ensuring enterprises can trust the data fueling their business,” said Christal Bemont, Chief Executive Officer of Talend. “I am pleased with how the team has executed through the challenges of 2020 and successfully delivered on the strategic initiatives and targets we laid out a year ago. As we look forward, the transaction with Thoma Bravo – a firm with a successful track record of helping the companies it acquires achieve long-term, sustainable growth – will provide Talend with additional capital, resources, and expertise to execute against our mission and leverage a large market opportunity to help all organizations become data-driven. I want to thank the Talend team for their dedication to our company and customers; it is the incredible women and men of Talend who have helped build a leading platform and made this exciting transaction possible.”   “We are thrilled to partner with the management team at Talend to continue to build upon their leadership position in the cloud data integration market,” said Seth Boro, a Managing Partner at Thoma Bravo. “We are confident we can apply our experiences working with market-leading software companies to accelerate Talend’s growth and complete its transition to the cloud.”   “Data has become critical to every facet of the world, and Talend’s data fabric empowers organizations to operationalize their data,” said Chip Virnig, a Partner at Thoma Bravo. “Talend has built the leading cloud-native orchestration platform that helps organizations bring together all their data, wherever it may sit, to solve their most complex problems.”   Transaction Details   Under the terms of the binding memorandum of understanding, Thoma Bravo will initiate a cash tender offer of $66.00 (approximately €55.54) per Talend ordinary share and ADS, subject to certain conditions. This offer values Talend at approximately $2.4 billion or approximately €2.1 billion, including net debt.   The agreement includes a 30-day “go-shop” period expiring on April 10, 2021, which permits Talend’s Board and advisors to solicit alternative acquisition proposals. Talend has the right to terminate the memorandum of understanding to enter into a superior proposal subject to certain terms and conditions of the memorandum of understanding. There can be no assurance that this “go-shop” will result in a superior proposal, and Talend does not intend to disclose developments with respect to the solicitation process unless and until it determines such disclosure is appropriate or is otherwise required.   In the event that Talend’s Board recommends the tender offer to the holders of ordinary shares and ADSs upon completion of the appropriate works council consultations, Thoma Bravo will commence the tender offer thereafter. The closing of the transaction is subject to the valid tender pursuant to the tender offer of ordinary shares and ADSs of Talend representing – together with ordinary shares and ADSs of Talend then beneficially owned by Thoma Bravo, if any – at least 80% of the outstanding ordinary shares and ADSs, receipt of customary transactional regulatory approvals (including French foreign investment control procedure) and other customary closing conditions.   In addition, in case of said recommendation, Talend will convene an ordinary and extraordinary general meeting of the shareholders to vote on a transaction that would result in the Company structurally, but not operationally, redomiciling in the Netherlands. Following the closing of the tender offer and completion of said transaction, any ordinary shares or ADSs not tendered would be ultimately redeemed for a price equal to the price per ordinary share and ADS as paid in the tender offer.  In connection with these transactions, Talend’s existing French activities, including assets, liabilities and employees, would be first transferred to a new wholly-owned French subsidiary.   The tender offer is currently expected to close in the third quarter of 2021 and the redomiciling and related transactions are currently expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. Talend will become a privately held company and Talend's ADSs will no longer be listed on any public market, assuming the completion of the tender offer and the redomiciling and related transactions.   Transaction Terms   The tender offer will be implemented in accordance with the terms and conditions of the binding memorandum of understanding between Talend and Thoma Bravo. In addition to the offer terms, the memorandum of understanding contains customary representations, warranties and undertakings by Talend and Thoma Bravo.   The parties have further agreed on certain expense reimbursement and termination fees payable by Talend to Thoma Bravo under certain circumstances, including if the Talend Board determines not to issue a positive recommendation following completion of the appropriate works council consultations, subsequently changes or withdraws its recommendation, or terminates to accept a superior proposal.   Advisors   Qatalyst Partners is serving as financial advisor to Talend and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C. and Gide Loyrette Nouel A.A.R.P.I. are serving as legal counsel. Kirkland & Ellis, LLP is serving as legal counsel to Thoma Bravo.   About Talend   Talend, a leader in data integration and data integrity, is changing the way the world makes decisions.   Talend Data Fabric is the only platform that brings together all the data integration and governance capabilities to simplify every aspect of working with data.

European Clothing Retailer Selects Talend to Optimize Digital Shopping Experience for Customers

Tape à l’oeil leverages the power of cloud data and APIs to increase sales and marketing efficiencies and develop a customer-360 approach Redwood City, CA and Suresnes, France - January 25, 2021 - Talend, a leader in data integration and data integrity, announced today that Tape à l’oeil, a French children’s clothing retailer founded in 1993, has selected Talend to accelerate its digital transformation. Talend is helping the retailer empower data workers and business users with trusted customer intelligence in real-time, to help them optmize and personalize the online shopping experience for its customers. The company is using Talend Data Fabric to speed information delivery and data exchange through APIs to manage their supply chain.They are also relying on Talend Stitch to rapidly integrate data from the Web and social media platforms and analyze sales performance.   In early 2020, Tape à l’oeil’s digital data strategy accelerated with the Covid-19 crisis. The company needed to optimize its online operations as the pandemic had accelerated the research online, purchase offline (ROPO) behaviours of their customers. With Talend, the company was able to better manage and optimize its entire supply chain: “If a product is not available at purchasing time, the sale is lost. There is both the risk that the customer will go to another store and that the product will have to be discounted at the end of the season,” said Guillaume Porquier, Chief Information Officer, Tape à l’oeil. “With COVID-19, some suppliers had to stop their activities, and the real-time monitoring of our supply chain gave us the agility to make the appropriate adjustments very quickly.”   With Talend, the company is also able to build a customer-360 approach through the delivery and timely access to trusted data. Internal and external data provides visibility to stores on customer behaviours and buying habits. This information can then be integrated into predictive models. And, with the data collected from the Web using Talend Stitch, the company can also enrich its customer marketing data with customer journey analysis and predictive analytics.   “The retail industry has been heavily impacted and disrupted with Covid-19 with a massive change in customers’ purchasing behaviours,” said Gareth Vincent, SVP of Sales EMEA, Talend. “Tape à l’oeil data strategy and achievements illustrate the importance on relying on complete, clean and trusted data to react faster and mitigate risk. We are proud to support Tape à l’oeil’s data journey and continuous growth.”   “Retail immediacy and proximity are keys to success in retail,” said Guillaume Porquier. “Information must flow from product design to sales, otherwise we can't do our job. Talend is our strategic partner in this process.”   For more information about how companies are using Talend solutions, please visit the website. You can read the full story here.

Talend Opens Second Cloud Data Center in Europe to Support Stitch Customer Growth

Helps European customers meet GDPR compliance and ease administrative burden following EU decision to invalidate Privacy Shield Redwood City, CA and Suresnes, France - December 15, 2020 - Talend, a global leader in data integration and integrity, today announced the opening of its newest European data center exclusively for Stitch, the company’s cloud data ingestion service that moves data from over 130 sources into a data warehouse of their choice with no coding required. The Frankfurt-based data center, operated by Amazon Web Services (AWS), is already fully operational and has been hosting customers since early November 2020. In July 2020, the European Union (EU) made the landmark decision to invalidate the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, ruling it insufficient to keep European citizens’ data safe when transferring it to the US. As a result, the four-year-old framework can no longer be used to demonstrate compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), significantly raising the risk of non-compliance and financial penalties, and creating an additional administrative burden. “We are extremely proud to announce that our newest European Data Centre is now open for business, exclusively for Stitch customers,” said Gareth Vincent, SVP of Sales EMEA, Talend. “We have always been fiercely committed to helping customers meet and maintain compliance with their local data sovereignty requirements. This extends to our managed cloud applications. By launching support exclusively for Stitch within the EU, we can help customers navigate the strict regulatory environment, meet their own data and compliance goals, while also offering the same fully-managed data pipeline service that powers thousands of Stitch customers around the world.” Talend launched its latest data center for Stitch to help customers better manage data security and compliance during data transfers – removing some of the burden from Digital Protection Officers (DPOs) and cutting cost and complexity.  Talend’s Stitch offering provides businesses with immediate access to data, which is often siloed across hundreds of SaaS apps and databases. Enabling access to this data helps analysts spend more time generating the actionable insights that business leaders need and less time on data preparation. “Today, data is at the heart of everything we do,” says Guillaume Porquier, Information Systems Director, at children’s fashion retailer, Tape à l’œil.“If a product is not available at a certain time, the sale is lost. You run the risk both that the customer will turn to another retailer, and that the product will have to be sold at a discount at the end of the season. With COVID-19, some suppliers have had to suspend operations, and the real-time management of our supply chain allowed us to make the appropriate course changes very quickly.” Guillaume continues; “Stitch has played a crucial role in this, enabling us to capture digital traffic data from European merchant websites and post-KPIs for our management team, as well as capture customer feedback through surveys from different angles. Finally, Stitch retrieves campaign results from Facebook and Instagram to cross-reference them in Snowflake, making all this information available to the various disciplines. All our systems and data are hosted in Europe – cloud or on-premise – as part of the company’s GDPR compliance strategy. As we are expanding the use of Stitch and use cases, I am glad Talend has opened a new data center for Stitch in the EU, further supporting our data journey.” To discover all the capabilities and move data rapidly and securely into cloud data warehouses for analysis, customers can sign up for an account here.
