Bain Capital leads $6.9b buyout of BMC Software

In the latest sign that big buyouts are back, Bain Capital is helping to lead a $6.9 billion deal to acquire BMC Software Inc.

BMC is a Houston-based maker of software that lets companies manage their information systems, including use of the cloud. It has 6,100 employees, 47 of them in Boston, and had revenue of $2.2 billion last year. The deal comes as banks are opening up their vaults to provide debt for buyout deals at a level not seen since the financial crisis.
