Yozma Venture Capital is looking to sell their shares in Israel-based Conduit, a company who creates user engagement tools. Yozma could receive more than $200 million if they sold their shares, Globe reported yesterday.




The buyer is Silver Lake, a U.S. private equity firm, who is looking to pay between $200 and $250 million for the stake in Conduit. Globes describes the firm as a:


large foreign investment firm that has tens of billions of dollars in assets under management.


Yozma originally invested $1.5 million in the company back in 2006 for a 9-percent stake. If this deal continues, Yozma would see a very impressive 200-times its initial investment, or 20,000-percent. This is an insane deal for Yozma, and shows they invested their money very wisely.


What do Conduit offer? They offer three services, first, a community toolbar that boosts traffic and grows website communities, a mobile service that creates apps, and the Wibaya Bar, which promotes social engagement.
