One of Canada’s most successful emerging technology companies, BlueCat Networks, Inc., has been sold for almost $400-million to U.S. private equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners LLC in the latest in a string of foreign takeovers in the sector. Co-founders Michael Hyatt, 43, and brother Richard Hyatt, 44, will pocket the majority of the proceeds and retain a minority stake. Michael Hyatt will also remain a BlueCat director. The deal for the company, whose server technology is used by about 1,000 large corporate and government customers to connect their users and devices securely to Internet-based applications and services, will be announced Thursday.
