Qualtrics Bought for $12.5 Billion by Private Investor Silver Lake

Experience management vendor Qualtrics is being purchased by private investment firm Silver Lake for approximately $12.5 billion in cash. Qualtrics was purchased for $8 billion by SAP in 2018, and then spun off as a separate company in 2020. SAP had announced it was exploring a sale of its Qualtrics stake in January, so the deal is not much of a surprise.
