On April 26, 2021, Proofpoint announced that it had signed an agreement to be acquired by Thoma Bravo for approximately $12.3 billion. Pursuant to the merger agreement, Proofpoint stockholders will receive $176 in cash for each share of Proofpoint common stock owned. The deal is scheduled to close in the third quarter of 2021.
