SUSE Is Sold To EQT For $2.5 Billion
SUSE was founded in 1992 and it was the first company to market Linux to enterprise. Since then the company has been acquired multiple times starting from 2004 by Novell to 2011 by The Attachmate Group.In 2016, SUSE announced the acquisition of assets relating to OpenAttic storage management assets from a german company. And now in 2018, the company has announced its own acquisition by Blitz 18-679 GmbH, a subsidiary of EQT.
Let me tell you that the acquisition is not done yet. According to the announcement on SUSE’s blog, the deal will finish in the first quarter of 2019. Let’s hope that the acquisition brings goodness for the open source community.
