We very much appreciate their support."

Ben Ramundo, a Principal at Arlington Capital Partners, added, "Exostar plays a critical role in securely facilitating supply chain transactions and broader collaboration between the largest aerospace, defense and healthcare firms and each of their supply bases. We look forward to strengthening that network even further by building upon management's impressive accomplishments under Thoma Bravo's stewardship."

"It has been a privilege to work alongside the Exostar team," said Carl Press, a Partner at Thoma Bravo. "Under Richard's leadership, the company successfully transformed its commercial capabilities, expanded its product offering with The Exostar Platform and achieved substantial growth in both revenue and earnings, all while remaining true to its long-standing commitments to customers and partners. We are very proud of the business transformation that took place under Thoma Bravo's ownership, and I'm confident that Arlington will help take Exostar to even greater heights."

The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2023, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
