I saw this on MyHeritage recently – MyHeritage Acquired by Leading Private Equity Firm Francisco Partners: Slightly longer article.

 by Esther April 8, 2021 MyHeritage News

We’re happy to announce that Francisco Partners, a leading global investment firm that specializes in partnering with technology businesses, has acquired MyHeritage. The transaction was signed on February 24, 2021, and was pending regulatory approvals, which have recently been received, and hence the acquisition was completed today. 

The last 18 years have been an incredible journey for MyHeritage, none of which would have been possible without our amazing team and our devoted users. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Gilad Japhet, Founder and CEO of MyHeritage, will continue to lead our excellent and dedicated team as we create new and exciting ways for people to learn about their origins. There are no personnel changes and no changes in the product roadmap. Some of our former investors have departed with a smile, and Francisco Partners has replaced them.
