Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Endgame, a pioneer and industry-recognized leader in endpoint protection, detection, and response.
For years, the Elastic Stack has been adopted and used as a security analytics solution for threat hunting, fraud detection, security monitoring, cybersecurity, and more. In June 2019, Elastic launched Elastic SIEM to give security teams a powerful new tool for collecting, investigating, and detecting security information and events. The addition of Endgame’s endpoint protection product alongside Elastic SIEM will further simplify security for everyone — giving users a single, complete solution to combat threats and attacks. On October 15, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. (ET), Elastic will be hosting a special livestream from Washington, D.C., to unveil the details with Elastic CEO Shay Banon and Endgame CEO Nate Fick. Register here.
The total purchase price was $234 million, subject to customary adjustments, paid through the issuance of approximately 2.2 million ordinary shares of Elastic, the assumption of Endgame’s outstanding options, and cash payments aggregating approximately $27 million to repay Endgame’s outstanding bank debt of approximately $20 million and Endgame’s transaction expenses and other items aggregating approximately $7 million.
