ADP Agrees To Sell ADP Taxware To Vista Equity Partners

ROSELAND, N.J., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) services, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to sell the ADP Taxware business to Vista Equity Partners, a leading private-equity firm focused on investments in software and technology-enabled services. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.

ADP Taxware, a leading provider of automated solutions for sales, use and value-added tax compliance, is based in Salem, N.H., and serves more than 1,200 clients.

Vista invests in companies that develop and market enterprise mission-critical software, software-as-a-service, and technology-enabled business services.  Vista chose to acquire Taxware because of its strong market position, product offerings, loyal and satisfied clients, and its highly talented and devoted employees.  Leveraging its experience with numerous other enterprise mission critical software companies, Vista is well-positioned to help Taxware execute its growth strategy and strengthen and expand its product offerings.

According to Robert F. Smith, chairman and CEO of Vista Equity Partners, "We are long-term investors in enterprise application software companies that are committed to being leaders in their markets.  We are impressed with the compelling value proposition the Taxware products and services offer their customers, the impressive list of marquee clients and their history of being a leader in the markets they serve.  We look forward to working with them to allow them to reach their full potential."

"Clients are at the heart of everything we do," said Kenneth Zemba, division vice president and general manager of ADP Taxware. "As part of Vista Equity Partners, we'll continue our history of providing clients with industry-leading products and services."

The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close by Dec. 31, 2012.
