Inside the $6 billion Tech Data-Apollo deal


    A new regulatory filing by Tech Data Corp. details the corporate intrigue that served as a background for the $6 billion acquisition of the Clearwater IT company by funds associated with Apollo Global Management.

    Tech Data (Nasdaq: TECD), the largest company headquartered in the Tampa-St. Pete area based on revenue, will become a private company if shareholders approve the deal, which calls for Apollo to buy all of Tech Data’s stock for $145 a share.
