Investors Pump $2.6 Billion into Ancestry.com

This is a follow-up to my article published on Friday at https://blog.eogn.com/2016/04/01/silver-lake-to-invest-in-ancestry-com/, Silver Lake to Invest in Ancestry.com. A later announcement from Ancestry has revealed the amount of the new investment: $2.6 billion US.

The investments will give Silver Lake and GIC equal and “significant” minority ownership stakes in Ancestry.com. Majority ownership will remain with current investors — Permira, Spectrum Equity and two company managers.

Details are available in the Salt Lake Tribune at http://goo.gl/OHWXZP and in Fortune at http://goo.gl/Gq2UEE.
