Dinsmore counsels Lexmark International to acquire Kofax Limited for $1 billion

Client: Lexmark International
In a major technology deal, Dinsmore counseled Lexmark International, Inc., a Lexington, KY manufacturer of laser printers and provider of enterprise software services, in the acquisition of Kofax Limited, a software provider incorporated in Bermuda and headquartered in Irvine, CA. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Lexmark paid $11.00 per share in cash to acquire all issued and outstanding common shares of Kofax for a total enterprise value of approximately $1 billion.

“This was a very competitive public bid process,” said Susan Zaunbrecher, Chair of the Corporate Department. “The relationship we’ve built with Lexmark was crucial to how smoothly this acquisition transpired.”

Dinsmore has served as deal counsel to Lexmark in more than 10 transactions, including the acquisition of Perceptive Software, Inc., Lexmark’s first acquisition in the enterprise software industry, and the divestiture of Lexmark’s inkjet business.
