Item 8.01. Other Events.
On April 17, 2016, Cvent, Inc. (“Cvent”) announced that it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Papay Holdco, LLC (“Parent”) and Papay Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), providing for the merger of Merger Sub with and into Cvent (the “Merger”), with Cvent surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. Parent and Merger Sub were formed by affiliates of Vista Equity Partners Fund VI, L.P. and Vista Holdings Group, L.P.
As disclosed at that time, the Merger was subject to customary closing conditions, including expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended. On November 18, 2016, Cvent announced that it had received notice from the U.S. Department of Justice (the "DOJ") that the DOJ had concluded its investigation of the Merger. A copy of the press release containing the announcement is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference.
Upon receipt of the foregoing notification from the DOJ, the parties agreed that all conditions to the completion of the Merger have been irrevocably satisfied and the Merger will be closed on or before November 29, 2016.
