Exclusive: Supply chain software firm E2open nears deal to go public – sources

(Reuters) – U.S. supply chain management software firm E2open LLC is nearing a deal to go public through a merger with blank-check acquisition company CC Neuberger Principal Holdings I at a valuation of more than $2.5 billion, including debt, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

An agreement could be announced as soon as Wednesday, the sources said, cautioning that talks could still falter. E2open is owned by private equity firm Insight Partners.

The sources requested anonymity because the matter is confidential. CC Neuberger declined to comment. E2open and Insight Partners did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

CC Neuberger I shares rose as much as 10.7% on the news but pared gains to close 3.2% higher at $10.53.

CC Neuberger I is a special purpose acquisition (SPAC), or shell, company that uses proceeds from an initial public offering to acquire a private company, which then becomes public as a result.

Merging with a SPAC has become a popular alternative to going public in a traditional initial public offering, as it involves less regulatory scrutiny and more certainty over the market valuation and funds raised.

So far this year, sports betting platform DraftKings Inc and electric commercial truck maker Nikola Corp have gone public by merging with a SPAC.

Insight Partners took E2open private in 2015 in a roughly $273 million deal. The Austin, Texas-based company sells software that allows companies to manage their supply chain.

E2open’s revenue is around five times what it was in 2015, one of the sources said. It stands to benefit as companies automate their supply chains further in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Led by veteran Wall Street dealmaker Chinh Chu’s investment firm, CC Neuberger I raised $414 million in an IPO in April with the aim of buying a company in the financial,

Macbook Air



Hollis Johnson/Business Insider


  • Apple’s latest MacBook Air that launched in March 2020 is down $150, with prices starting at $850 for Amazon Prime Day 2020. 
  • You get the full $150 discount on the two available models at checkout. 
  • The base 256GB model with a dual-core processor typically retails for $1,000, and the 512GB model with a faster quad-core processor usually goes for $1,300.
  • Getting $150 off on a MacBook Air is a good deal by Apple device standards, and it’s the best we’ve seen for these laptops on Amazon so far. 
  • The MacBook Air is an ultra-slim and portable laptop that’s also the most affordable in Apple’s laptop lineup, and it’s the best MacBook for the vast majority of people who need laptops.

Apple’s latest MacBook Air that launched in March 2020 is $150 off for an early Amazon Prime Day 2020 treat. This discount is a good deal by Apple device standards.

That brings the typical $1,000 price of the base MacBook Air with 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and a 10th-gen Intel Core i3 dual-core processor down to $850. 

The pricier model with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, 512GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM is also getting a $150 discount, bringing its usual $1,300 price down to $1,150. These are the best prices we’ve seen for Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air.

The Core i3 model is incredibly affordable for an Apple laptop, and it’ll work just fine for the majority of people who mostly use a web browser for light and basic tasks. Still, the base MacBook Air’s Core i3’s dual-core chip is under-powered by today’s standards, especially for a laptop that costs more than $800 with a deal.

U.K. Set for Brexit Tussle With EU Over Virgin-O2 Phone Deal

(Bloomberg) — Britain’s deals watchdog said it’s “only right” that it gets to review a tie-up between Liberty Global Plc and Telefonica SA in the nation, setting up a regulatory tussle with the European Union as the U.K. and EU leaders clash over their future relationship.

The 02 website, of Telfonica SA’s U.K. unit, sits on a mobile phone held in front of a Virgin Media logo, a unit of Liberty Global Plc, on a television in this arranged photograph near Guilford, U.K., on Monday, May 4, 2020. Telefonica and John Malone’s Liberty Global have never been closer to finally creating the U.K.’s biggest telecom operator after flirting with various combinations over the years.

The Competition and Markets Authority asked the European Commission to transfer a probe into Liberty Global’s plan to merge its Virgin Media unit with Telefonica’s O2 in the U.K. The EU’s competition regulator, which normally clings on tightly to investigations of telecom deals, acknowledged the request, pushing back its deadline to rule on the deal until Nov. 19

“As the merger will only impact U.K. consumers — and any effects would only be felt after the end of the transition period — it is only right for the CMA to request it back,” CMA Chief Executive Officer Andrea Coscelli said in an emailed statement on Thursday.

Liberty Global sought European Commission approval for the transaction last week. EU regulators can transfer a review to smaller national authorities if they think they are best placed to make a decision. The EU has rarely handed back mobile-phone deals and has often taken a harsh line on telecoms consolidation. Although Britain quit the EU earlier this year, EU law still applies and large deals are handled by the Brussels-based authority during a transition period until
