CA Technologies

Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher is handling Broadcom’s $19B deal to acquire CA Technologies, information technology management software company.

The move follows Broadcom’s unsuccessful takeover bid for Qualcomm, a deal blocked by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the US.

Broadcom, which has relocated its headquarters from Singapore to San Jose, views CA “as an important building block as we create one of the world’s leading infrastructure technology companies,” according to a statement from CEO Hock Tan.

The $44.50 per-share cash offer for New York-based CA is a 20 premium over its July 11 closing stock price.

The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.

Joele Frank, Steve Frankel and Andi Rose are working the deal.
