Quest Software, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced the expiration of the 60-day “go-shop” period provided for under the terms of the previously announced merger agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) between the Company and affiliates of Insight Venture Partners (“Insight”).

During the “go-shop” period, representatives of Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (“Morgan Stanley”), financial advisor to a Special Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Special Committee”), engaged in a broad solicitation of strategic and financial parties potentially interested in pursuing an alternative transaction with the Company.

Prior to the expiration of the “go-shop” period, the Special Committee received multiple written proposals for potential alternative transactions with the Company. After consulting with its financial and legal advisors, the Special Committee has determined, pursuant to Section 5.2(a) of the Merger Agreement, that multiple proposals (each, an “alternative proposal,” and together, the “alternative proposals”) are reasonably expected to lead to a superior proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), and also has determined that the parties from which the Special Committee received these alternative proposals are “Qualified Go-Shop Bidders” (as defined in the Merger Agreement).

Subject to certain conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, the Company may continue to furnish information to and engage in further discussions and negotiations with such Qualified Go-Shop Bidders.

The Special Committee has not yet determined that any of the alternative proposals constitute a superior proposal under the Merger Agreement. The alternative proposals are subject to several conditions, including completion of due diligence and the negotiation of mutually acceptable definitive agreements. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that any of the alternative proposals will ultimately lead to a superior proposal as discussions and negotiations with the Qualified Go-Shop Bidders could terminate at any time. The Special Committee has not changed its recommendation with respect to, and continues to support, the Company’s pending merger with Insight pursuant to the Merger Agreement.
