Hexagon Acquires MSC Software for $834 Million

Hexagon AB, a leading provider of geospatial and industrial applications, has acquired MSC Software, a leading provider in computer-aided engineering (CAE). The $834 million dollar transaction strengthens Hexagon’s ability to connect the traditionally separate stages of design and production by integrating production floor data with simulation data to further improve a customer’s ability to reveal and correct design limitations and production problems prior to manufacturing. The 3.6x TTM revenue multiple was driven, in part, by MSC’s strong recurring revenue base and profit.
