Guru Investment Theses on SolarWinds Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on SolarWinds Inc. - Mar 08, 2016

SolarWinds, Inc. (NYSE:SWI) accepted a $4.5 billion offer to be acquired by two private equity firms, turning it into a homerun for investors. In October, the developer of IT infrastructure management software agreed to be purchased at nearly a 20% premium by Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo. We initiated a position in SolarWinds in 2013 based on our belief that the company would benefit from an increasingly large market opportunity created by a pervasiveness of performance-driven IT infrastructures. We opportunistically added to the position when the stock pulled back and were rewarded by the takeout.
