Unison, a provider of procurement, supply chain, and contract management software to US federal government agencies and government contractors, has secured a strategic majority investment from funds affiliated with Madison Dearborn Partners (MDP), a private equity investment firm based in Chicago.

As part of the transaction, funds managed by global investment firm Carlyle will sell a majority stake to MDP, while remaining a strategic partner as a minority investor. 

MDP joins existing investors, Carlyle and Unison management, to provide additional resources and industry expertise to help Unison continue to enhance its innovative software offerings and growth trajectory. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The transaction is anticipated to close in the third quarter of 2022. Unison’s management team will continue to serve in their current roles and members of Unison leadership will maintain a significant portion of their investment in Unison.
