Network Instruments, LLC

Minnetonka, MN

Network Instruments is an industry leader in application and network troubleshooting and analysis. The company’s monitoring and management tools optimize performance and speed problem resolution, helping ensure delivery of critical applications for businesses worldwide. It delivers these benefits through a seamlessly integrated line of software and hardware systems that are precision engineered for exact network monitoring and analysis. After Thoma Bravo acquired Network instruments in 2012, it worked with management to transition the company from a founder owned and operated business to a professionally managed business with improved budgeting processes, formal incentive plans and financial support for sales to build upon the company’s differentiated technology in a growing market.  This led to increased revenues and earnings, accelerated growth in new bookings and attention from larger companies in the sector. In 2014, the company was sold to JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASADAQ:JDSU), a $1.7B public provider of network management solutions.
