Imperva Announces Expiration of the Go-Shop Period

Share:

Imperva, Inc. (NASDAQ:IMPV), a cybersecurity leader that delivers
best-in-class solutions to protect data and applications on-premises, in
the cloud and across hybrid environments, today announced the expiration
of the 45-day go-shop period included in the previously announced merger
agreement under which Imperva has agreed to be acquired by Thoma Bravo.

During the go-shop period, Imperva and its financial advisor solicited
inquiries relating to alternative acquisition proposals from 49
potentially interested parties, six of these parties entered into
confidentiality agreements and received access to non-public information
about Imperva. Imperva received one preliminary non-binding acquisition
proposal prior to commencement of due diligence, which was subsequently
withdrawn, and as of the expiration of the go-shop period there were no
acquisition proposals pending.

Following the expiration of the go-shop period, Imperva became subject
to customary no-shop restrictions that limit its and its
representatives' ability to solicit alternative acquisition proposals
from third parties, subject to customary "fiduciary out" provisions.

Imperva continues to expect the transaction to close early in the first
quarter of 2019, subject to approval by Imperva's stockholders and
regulatory authorities and the satisfaction of customary closing
conditions.
