Unomaly acquired by LogicMonitor
Detecting anomalies across the entire technology stack, in real-time.
Stockholm, 14 January 2020 - GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to Unomaly AB on its acquisition by Vista Equity Partners backed LogicMonitor.

Founded in 2012 by Johan Gustafsson and Göran Sandahl, and backed by investors including EQT Ventures and Catea Group, Unomaly offers a unique technology that empowers IT and Development Operations teams to intelligently process logs and identify critical insights needed to stay ahead of issues.

The acquisition will accelerate LogicMonitor’s AI Operations roadmap and will support clients’ IT operations by providing the intelligent insights needed to determine when and how to embrace automation in order to resolve IT infrastructure issues before they disrupt the business.

Johan Gustafsson, CEO and Co-founder of Unomaly, commented: “Today’s acquisition brings the Unomaly team and technology into LogicMonitor. Our technology will now integrate with LogicMonitor’s roadmap to accelerate our commitment to help end users gain valuable insights that can be trusted to drive action. It has been a true pleasure to have worked with GP Bullhound throughout the process. Their sector expertise and professionalism ensured the optimal outcome for Unomaly, its team, and its shareholders.”

Sven Raeymaekers, Partner, and Dr. Nikolas Westphal, Director at GP Bullhound, said: “We are excited to have advised Unomaly and its shareholders on this transaction. The company’s unique approach to anomaly detection has proven invaluable for their growing list of international customers. Partnering with LogicMonitor will allow Unomaly to embark on the next step of their growth journey.”

This represents GP Bullhound’s 14th transaction in the software space in the last 12 months, following recent completed deals including the investment by CVC Growth Partners into EcoVadis, the acquisition of AppBuddy by Validity, the investment by Apax Digital in Signavio, the acquisition of Falcon.io by Cision, and the investment by Accel-KKR in Partnerize, among many others.
