Kirkland & Ellis LLP represented TPG Capital, the global private equity fund of alternative asset firm TPG, on its investment in LLamasoft, the global leader in supply chain modeling and design software. LLamasoft’s technology includes Supply Chain Guru, and this year LLamasoft is rolling out multiple new disruptive applications in the areas of supply chain visibility, planning, and demand modeling. The innovation behind these new applications was driven by collaboration with clients across multiple industries, and fueled by an investment from Goldman Sachs’ Merchant Banking Division in 2015. As part of this transaction, Goldman Sachs will remain a significant partner.
The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval. Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed. More information is available here.
The Kirkland team was led by corporate partners Michael Weisser and Adele Maloney Thomas, associate Christopher Burwell and foreign associate Sara Shackleford; tax partner Mike Beinus; and executive compensation partner Scott Price.
