Carlyle taps latest flagship fund to buy software company
June 30, 2020
The Carlyle Group has acquired Unison (formerly Compusearch), a provider of procurement, supply-chain and contract management software for government agencies, from Abry Partners, which had backed the business since 2015. Funding for the deal came from Carlyle's seventh flagship fund, which closed on $18.5 billion in 2018. The firm previously owned the Virginia-based company from 2005 to 2010.
