Goodwin represented Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS) in its definitive merger agreement with LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq: LOGM) through which Citrix’s GoTo business will split off and combine with LogMeIn. The transaction is valued at approximately $1.8 billion based on shares to be issued and LogMeIn’s closing price of $65.31 as of July 25, 2016.
The combination of LogMeIn and Citrix’s GoTo family of products will be effected through a Reverse Morris Trust (RMT) transaction. Citrix has created a wholly owned subsidiary, named GetGo, to hold the GoTo business.
