McAfee attracts interest of private equity firms - report

Thursday 14 July 2016 | 08:38 CET | News
Intel's security unit McAfee is drawing interest from private equity firms as the company considers selling the business, people with knowledge of the matter told Bloomberg. Thoma Bravo, Permira and Vista Equity Partners are among firms conducting preliminary research on McAfee in the event of a sale, said the report. While Intel has held discussions with banks about an auction of the unit, none have been hired and Intel may choose to keep McAfee. The Financial Times reported last month that Intel is weighing options for the business. A spokeswoman for Intel declined to comment.
