Box Announces Closing of Strategic Investment Led by KKR
Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), a leading Content Cloud, today announced that it has closed the previously announced $500 million investment led by KKR. In connection with the closing of the investment, John Park, Head of Americas Technology Private Equity at KKR, has been appointed to the Box Board, effective immediately.
Box anticipates using substantially all of the proceeds to fund a share repurchase through a “Dutch auction” self-tender of up to $500 million of its common stock, with the specific amount and pricing of the self-tender to be determined based on market conditions and stock prices at the time when the self-tender is launched. The self-tender is expected to commence shortly after Box releases its fiscal first quarter financial results on May 27, 2021.
