Private equity firm Thoma Bravo has completed the acquisition of insurance software firm Majesco. Under the terms of an amended merger agreement announced on Aug. 8, Thoma Bravo acquired all of the shares of Majesco common stock for $16.00 per share in cash in a transaction valuing the company at $729 million.
This price was up from $13.10 a share, or $594 million, that Thoma agreed to pay in July.
In conjunction with the closing, Majesco’s common stock ceased trading before the market opened today and the company will no longer be listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. Majesco will operate as a privately-held company.

Thoma Bravo has a series of funds with more than $45 billion in capital commitments. Its current portfolio includes JD Power, Riskconnect and iPipeline. The firm has offices in San Francisco and Chicago.
