TPG injects US$336 million into Denodo to boost data management

Global alternative asset management firm TPG signed a definitive agreement for TPG Growth, the firm’s middle market and growth equity platform, to invest US$336 million in Denodo’s Series B preferred equity. 

The transaction, which includes both primary capital and a secondary sale of shares by HGGC, is expected to close in early October following customary regulatory approvals. 

HGGC, which invested in Denodo’s Series A investment round in 2017, will remain a significant investor.

J.P. Morgan acted as sole placement agent for the latest transaction.

“As the rapid growth in the volume, variety, and velocity of data continues, Denodo has established itself as a global leader in data management,” said Mike Zappert, partner at TPG. 

“Denodo’s unique data virtualisation software, which allows enterprises to create unified views of disparate data sources that can be queried easily without moving them, has powered impressive, profitable growth,” said Zappert.

He added that with a market leading Net Promoter Score of over 50, the company has built a notable roster of marquee, global customers including TPG. They see a tremendous opportunity to accelerate Denodo’s expansion going forward.

The addition of TPG, and its broad set of capabilities, is an important next step in Denodo’s growth trajectory. 

“This funding is a testament to Denodo’s leadership in the data management market and our further growth potential using the logical-first approach, powered by data virtualisation,” said Angel Viña, CEO and founder of Denodo.

Denodo has grown into a global leader in data management since HGGC’s investment in the company in 2017, with industry-leading customers across the world.
