On October 10, 2014, Symantec announced it planned to split the company into two parts:[3] The security business remaining with Symantec., and the Information Management business to be known as Veritas Technologies Corporation. The separation of the companies was completed on January 29, 2016.[4]

On August 11, 2015 Symantec announced the sale of its Veritas information management business to The Carlyle Group. Veritas and Symantec achieved operational separation on October 1, 2015. The sale completed on January 30, 2016 when Veritas became a privately-held company.[5][6] The sale to go private was for $8 billion, and represented a mark-down on Symantec stock.[7]
