MACOM Sells off Recently Acquired Compute Business of AppliedMicro

MACOM has entered into an agreement to sell the Compute Business it acquired in its AppliedMicro acquisition to Project Denver Holdings LLC (NewCo), a new company backed by The Carlyle Group.  Under the terms of the sale, MACOM will be issued a minority equity ownership interest in NewCo. The Carlyle Group is one of the world’s largest and most successful global investment firms, with over $170 billion in assets under management.

Equity for Carlyle’s investment came from Carlyle Partners VI, a $13 billion U.S. buyout fund. The divestment transaction became effective concurrently with the signing of the definitive agreement, with the exception of the transfer of certain assets and entities in jurisdictions outside of the United States, which will be transferred upon receipt of applicable foreign approvals.

Evercore acted as exclusive financial advisor and Ropes & Gray LLP served as legal counsel to MACOM. Carlyle was advised by Alston & Bird LLP.
