Baker Botts Assists RealPage, Inc. in $300 Million Acquisition

Deal Description: Dallas-based RealPage, Inc. (NASDAQ:RP) today announced its agreement to acquire Lease Rent Options (LRO) and related assets from The Rainmaker Group Ventures, LLC for $300 million in cash. LRO is a revenue management solution that empowers optimized pricing for over 1.5 million apartments. LRO will expand RealPage’s suite of solutions for precision data analytics and asset optimization for the rental housing industry.

The transaction will be financed through an expanded debt arrangement with RealPage’s current bank syndicate. It remains subject to certain customary closing conditions, including receipt of audited “carve-out” financial statements and HSR clearance, and is expected to close during the second quarter of 2017. The $300 million cash purchase price is subject to working capital adjustments and certain post-closing indemnification claims.

Morgan Stanley served as RealPage’s financial advisor and Wells Fargo Securities advised The Rainmaker Group Ventures.
