1 Min Read

May 6 (Reuters) - BMC Software Inc said on Monday it agreed to be acquired by a private equity group led by Bain Capital and Golden Gate Capital Corp for about $6.9 billion.

The offer price of $46.25 a share represents a scant premium to BMC's Friday close of $45.42. The company's stock has risen 4.5 percent since March 21, when Reuters reported that private equity groups were looking to buy the business software maker.
