Deal of the Year: Owl Rock Capital Partners for Checkmarx
In April 2020 Hellman & Friedman and TPG (minority) completed the acquisition of Checkmarx, a software security firm, with Owl Rock Capital Partners providing a first lien recurring revenue credit facility.
The deal was one of few being done at the height of the pandemic and amid great economic uncertainty - but in a sector that looks to have a solid future. Craig Packer, co-founder of Owl Rock, said COVID-19 had restricted deal opportunities.
"It's an extremely challenging time, and our overall disposition is to be incredibly cautious in deploying capital," Packer told Reuters in April.
