DATAllegro sales price: $275 million

According to a press release announcing a venture capitalist’s job change,

Microsoft purchased DATAllegro for $275 million

Technically, that needn’t shut down the rumor mill altogether, since given the way deals are structured and reported, it’s unlikely that Microsoft actually cut checks to DATAllegro stockholders in the aggregate amount of $275 million promptly after the close of the acquisition.

Still, it’s a data point of some weight.

Hat tip to Mark Myers.

    Colin White reported that figure back in August, with attribution to “the rumor mill”:

    I’ve heard a variety of different figures on the rumor mill, as well as some different things about terms/conditions.

    This is the first I felt was wroth actually posting. 🙂

    So it means about 90 million USD per customer 😉
