KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RDC, the global leader in risk intelligence compliance screening, announced today it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO).

The RDC acquisition positions Moody’s Analytics’ Bureau van Dijk (BvD), a leading provider of business intelligence and company data, to expand its range of data solutions, creating a global leader in anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) data and due diligence services. It will deepen Moody’s experience and expertise as a leader in financial and corporate reporting and analytics, by incorporating RDC’s world’s largest risk-relevant database and innovative technology, including the first-to-market true AI screening solution.

“Joining the Moody’s Analytics team is thrilling as it positions RDC to broaden our risk intelligence technology solutions as part of a leading provider of market and entity information and analytics to global financial institutions,” said RDC CEO Tom Walsh. “Joining BvD, under the Moody’s Analytics umbrella, will help us to expand and extend our artificial intelligence leadership position. It also enables us to re-double our mission of preventing criminal infiltration of the world’s financial system and bringing global transparency to areas of social responsibility such as human trafficking.”

Moody’s is the parent company of Moody’s Analytics, which offers leading-edge software, advisory services and research for credit and economic analysis and financial risk management.

The compliance screening company provides anti-money laundering and reputational risk software that prevents criminal infiltration of the global financial system, working as an extension of its customers’ compliance and safety teams by providing precise risk alerts and ongoing monitoring for enhanced protection and performance.

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.

UBS Investment Bank served as financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal advisor to RDC and Vista Equity Partners.

Linode, at 16, still growing

Tom Paine

This interview by TFiR:( Open Source and Emerging Tech) with Linode Founder Christopher Aker is a good watch. (37 minutes; from June of last year.)

Aker tells how he started and bootstrapped Linode. and what his operating philosophy is. A good description is to democratize technology by offering inexpensive virtualized services for the independent developer. Linode has continued to bypass all outside equity funding.

He describes the reasons for moving the business from a small Jersey shore town to Philadelphia (people needed a sense of community), and how he found the 162 year-old bank building that became Linode’s headquarters.

Aker says Linode has added about 100 employees in the last 18 to 20 months. Linode now has close to 200 employees according to the company’s Linkedin page. He says the management structure has become more complex (no longer flat) with the additional headcount, and that has been an adjustment process.

Two things Linode has been implementing are Kubernetes  and GPU Instances. In the future, Aker is working on database as a service, bare metal machines, and envisioning a future software-defined network architecture.

Tom Paine

Genetic precision medical company Color, based in Burlingame CA, just raised $75 million in a Series D led by T. Rowe Funds and Viking Global Investors.

In the past year alone, Color announced several new partnerships, including with the Teamsters Health and Welfare Fund of Philadelphia and Vicinity. It already had Apple as a partner. The Teamsters partnership will provide access to Color’s clinical-grade genomic services to some 14,000 members of its regional unions.

In addition to individualized genetic health, Color also serves the market for population health. Last year Jefferson Health also became a Color partner , and approximately 30% of Jefferson’s 32,000 associates signed up for Color’s genetic tests.

Founded in 2015, Color has raised $150 million so far.
