    Illinois-based Ensono provides cloud infrastructure services
to businesses and government agencies. It hosts servers,
databases and mainframe operations, counting Sonoco Products Co
 SON.N , Travelodge and the U.S. state of Kansas as its clients.
    The company, which has benefited from the accelerating
digital transformation demands from corporations during the
COVID-19 pandemic, had acquired UK-based cloud-native
consultancy Amido earlier this month to strengthen its global
    KKR said it was making the investment primarily from its
Americas XII Fund. The transaction is expected to close within
the next 60 days.
    UBS Investment Bank and Guggenheim Securities are serving as
the financial advisers to Ensono, while Morgan Stanley & Co and
RBC Capital Markets are advising KKR.
