1. TPG Capital Acquires Intel Security (Now McAfee)

While it was announced late last year, McAfee officially closed on its blockbuster split from Intel in April 2017. With the closing of the deal McAfee – formerly known as Intel Security – once again became a $2 billion stand-alone security vendor for the first time since its $7.7 billion sale to Intel in 2010. The split involves the sale of a 51 percent stake of the McAfee to TPG Capital. The deal is worth $4.2 billion, including $3.1 billion in cash to Intel and a $1.1 billion equity investment by TPG. The company is led by CEO Chris Young, who had previously served as senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security.

He said partners can expect to see investments in innovation and potentially even some acquisitions.
