Aspect Software has announced it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by Vector Capital, a leading private equity firm specialising in transformational investments in established technology businesses.

Under the terms of the agreement, Vector Capital will invest more than $100 million of equity capital in Aspect’s business, and Aspect’s existing lenders will continue to support the company by providing Aspect with a new credit facility at closing.

The transaction is subject to standard and customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019.
